    Hi all,

    Just got my Theatertek after about 2 weeks wait and whenever a disc is inserted it locks computer and reboots.

    PC Win XP on Asus A7V266 with XP1700+ Etc.
    Radeon 8500 with 6058 drivers
    Sonic fury sound card

    I tried to disable hardware acceleration on graphics card and the player then went into "Video initialisation error" instead of crashing.

    Not sure what else to try and look for. Any ideas?

    Cheers.

    Are you using the latest version of TT (patched via files from ImmersiveInc Website)?

    Should be 1.2.

    Version 1.2.076 so upto date.

    What drivers for radeon should i be using for Win XP.
    Just downloading 6071 from ATI to see what happens.

    Computer is very unhappy since the install of TT:(

    Slow, Lockups, BSOD ( unheard of on this PC ). Power DVD now stutters. So far unhappy.

    Any other ideas?

    Sharky,

    At the Immersive support forum you'll find a post from me saying pretty much same thing was happening. I was using the most up to date drivers from ATI site.

    I was told to go and get a different, older set, from a guys web site. The link should be on the Immersive thing. You have to go through a major spot of bother uninstalling the previous drivers then re-installing the older ones! I followed the advice and it just started working.

    Using Windows XP, people have had the most success with the 6025 drivers.

    Had to do a reinstall of windows, just relly messed up my comp:(

    Installed 6025 drivers and TT and now its cant find any decoders.
    So i installed the ravisent decoders from the disc and still nothing happens. Checked in Contriol panel/ add-remove and the filters are there. All this and only the internet on the comp at moment so nothing is getting in the way or corrupting the OS.

    Help?
