I know there is plenty of discussion about it on The Green Button. Personally that is one problem I never had.

Spent way to many hours trying to debug it. Not getting much help from the MFG.
My biggest issue is to get ATI cablecard tuner to switch to the second tuner when recording on tuner one. Any ideas?

I’m seeing this with my 32″ LCD and XPS 420 although I have it connected via DVI and have the monitor to turn off. Not sure what’s going on.

It is impossible for any hardware manufacturer to have a 100% success rate so I don’t blame ATI one bit.

I expect the replacement next, week so stay tuned.

I appreciate your efforts, and your postings. My fingers are crossed that you’ll succeed, because if you do, I’ll be following your lead.

Good luck!

I’m looking forward to upgrading my media center to vista and I’ll either use cable cards, or DirectTv’s solution. So thanks for sticking through it, so we don’t have to.

p.s. Hopefully a replacement ati tuner will fix it…
