G450 DVD playback problem

    I've searched for, but not found, the answer to this problem. I have a
    P4 1.6 on a MSI 645e Max2 MB running XP Pro SP2. I just installed the
    G450 dualhead, along with the latest Matrox software, and am having
    problems with the DVD playback being very dark and fuzzy. This is true
    for both WinDVD and Windows Media player. Occasionally the picture
    will appear sharp, but mostly it just stays rather poor. I'm sure that
    I've missed something on the install, but am uncertain where to look.
    Other than the DVD problem, the screen looks fantasic.

    Any words of wisdom to share? Thanks!

    Most likely either a third-party codec is interfering with
    DVD playback, or you have overridden the DirectX
    refresh rate for DVD playback (via dxdiag.exe/
