Hi

Currently running ATI Catalyst v8.457 Driver.
I've been told that 8.7 gives blue screen of death with 780G Mobo and XP
I've read (?on the ATI site) that 8.6 is incompatable with hardware accleration

I guess i could try a backup of my install and then try to upgrade to 8.7, good idea.

well, i could never get hardware accleration working with EVR and Vista

My computer has just died =(
I did an xpress recovery2 backup
i just did restore
but the screen crashes and i get lots of blue dots all over the screen.
will have to install the O.S. from scratch!!!!

bummer!


Can anyone recommend a better program to make an image of your XP install and then back it up,
either to the same hard-drive, or to an external USB or E-SATA drive?

yeah but im sick of reformatting every week when i try new stuff and it doesn't work.
xpressrecovery2 is really pizzing me off, this is the 2nd time it has failed on me!!!

I tried the ATI Catalyst 8.8 Beta Drivers (this contains ATI Display Driver 8.52)
I don't get any crashes loading XP
I now can view all DVB-T channels using hardware acceleration
However i do get the odd glitch in the video feed.

I think i may have to stick with drivers (8.457) on the gigabyte site,
I can't believe i wasted another night setting things up!
I am not popular with the fiancee now =)

I'm guessing that Catalyst drivers 8.7+ must solve the problems with green blotches on C4/TVNZ6/TVNZ7
However Win XP + 780G Mobo + Catalyst 8.7 = Windows Crash on startup
And 8.8 Beta have the odd video glitches, however the longer i watch TV the more stable it seems.

bloom:

Have you tried GA-MA78GM-2SH + Onboard ATI HD3200 + HVR2200 + Vista32 + Catalsyt 8.7 + PDVD8 + MP RC2 + EVR?

If so ...

Do you get any glitches if you watch TV3 for more than 5 minutes?

Do you get screen flickering when the TV & Menus are displayed at the same time?
eg being on home screen with TV running?
