    Hi, i am testig both 64 & 32 versions of vista, whilst the 64bit is running
    without any hardware problems, the 32bit refuses to install or activate the
    keyboard hot key functions. Whist the general sound can be turned down in
    other controls the main feature of utilizing TV out cannot be activated and
    is becoming a little annoying.

    Vista is running perfect and i need the TV out to work...any help or
    suggestions would be much appreciated.

    I installed 32bit on my Sony Vaio S260. I couldn't get the hotkey work. But
    even worse, the sound does not work either. The funny thing is that all
    drivers are properly installed and the sound indicator flashes meaning that
    sound is working. Yet there is no sound from the speaker. Any idea?

    I downloaded the original sound drives for my Viao from the Sony site,
    installed them in Vista and sound now works. YMMV.

    I tried that but no luck. Vista reports sound is there, and I could even see
    the bars moving when playing music, but no sound comes through speaker. It's
    really weird. Thanks anyway.

    I have the same issue, and have noticed that when installing the hotkey
    library and the actual handler program that runs on boot from windows XP, the
    hotkeys still don't work and the application complains that the battery is
    too low and to hibernate before losing power regardless of actual power
    usage. I think that we'll just have to wait until Sony gets its act together
    and writes a driver for Vista, if ever.
