    Problem with WMV playback (using either standard WMV files or WMV-HD). When Windows Media player 10 is maximised to full screen (Alt+Enter) banded lines occur at even intervals along the screen and worse at the edges.

    Please see for an example pic, although to doesn't really emphasis the scale of the problem (You can't take screen captures of WMV-HD files, so this photo was taken using a digital camera).

    Disabling all DirectDraw and DirectX acceleration removes this problem - so it is definately a DirectDraw or DirectX problem, I don't believe the graphic card itself is faulty because I've played DVD's on Media Player without error.

    When running in windowed mode there are no problems with the full hardware acceleration enabled.

    To the best of my knowledge this problem only affects the playback of wmv files at full screen.

    Any ideas?!
