MCE2005 resizing causes the proper screen color to randomly have red or yellow or green boxes...

Discussion in 'Windows Media Center' started by Gary J Dikkema, Feb 18, 2005.

  1. If I change the size of the window, it can vary from being correct to
    changing to another colored box within the window.

    This is most notable when using the TV component...

    I am using a nVidia FX5200 card and the Win Hauppauge USB2 tuner...

    I have noticed issues with drivers. Seems that Windows Update keeps pulling
    down this 2003 driver... which makes my TV playback stutter... if I roll
    that back to a 2004 driver this problem goes away.

    Anyone else see this and find a cure for it.

    I know I can keep playing with the screen size until it is correct.. but I'd
    like to fix the underlying problem.

    My advice is to never install video drivers from
    Windows Update. In my experience, they cause a
    lot more problems than they solve.

  3. Thanks Bob!

    Had to rebuild my whitebox MCE2005 machine... I didn't have this problem
    before. I have had recurring issues between the right nVidia driver inside
    and outside of the MCE environment though... must say I found this action

  4. And for follow-up...

    Installed the MSI Live Update and patched and got everything current...
    after rolling back all the WU stuff.

    I now have vibrant colors that seem fairly accurate... and no more green,
    yellow and pink and red boxes when I resize.

    Thanks for the tip!
