i'm running vista ultimate 64bit on an amd system. i have an ati 5770 card and a tv wonder hd650 tuner card.
they've worked together wonderfully for months and they just now stopped cooperating.
when i start WMC i click on live tv and it plays for, at most, 20 seconds then freezes and restarts. if i change the channel it freezes immediately. if i watch pre recorded tv it does the same and freezes after 10 seconds or so. i've also tried watching random music videos i've had on my copmuter for years and they will play about 1 minute in and freeze.
i've also tried the unthinkable. i've tried catalyst media center. at first it was giving me an error when i clicked on the "TV" tab. but now it seems to be working just fine. i used to use CMC but i got tired of the lag in the program. WMC is much much faster and actually gets a better picture quiality.
p.s. i also downloaded Splash light avchd player and game booster last night. is there any way either of these things could affect it?
