I already had net framework 2, but noticed in the ms updates that the last net 2 update had failed cos the framework was corrupt. Never noticed a failed update before.
Anyhows,, have reinstalled it, and got the updates.
Dont know if it was the net framework, or the ATI drivers, but either way, the picture is a lot sharper now.
Its still a bit blurry watching football, but i can honestly say that there is a noticable difference.
Its still stuttering though, but not as ofton.
For now, i think we have definetly acheived a fix for the problems.
Will still do a bit more searching though, for that info about deleting the latest quartzdll for an older one.
Thats supposed to fix the stutter for good.
Cheers Keith, once again your advice and perseverance has been excellent.
Thanks a million.
