  2. Order of installation. Cat7.1 or better and .NET Version2 if your going to
    use the latest MMC. Would need some idea of the problem to give more
    specific advice.

    Well i have followed all of the instructions to a Tee, in the proper order and
    the proper revisions and i now can watch any of the sub channels that are
    480i, but any of the 720P or 1080i HDTV stations (Main channels) come thru
    black, only audio plays.

    I am going to reboot now and try turning off Hyperthreading and see if that
    works. But HHHeeelllppppp!!!!!

  5. Good idea. Some other things to try: Run DXDiag and check for problems. Set
    or unset acceleration in CCC>Video>All Settings. Uninstall and reinstall MMC
    and the encoder but don't install the parental control.

    Aloke's suggestion to try WatchHDTV is a good one but I'd be surprised if
    this doesn't show up in it too. The problem I had with the parental control
    in 9.15 also showed up in WatchHDTV. Was getting a green screen on 1080i,
    only, until left out parental control upon installing 9.16.

    I was able to get Digital And HDTV 1080i and 720P to work by using an older
    version of the CAT drivers, something like CAT 5.8 or semthinganother. So the
    thing i feel is busting the HDTV wonder is the newer cats reliance on .NET
    framework and ATI using that damn new control panel instead of the old one.

    I do not want to use the slow 5.8 drivers so i am still going to experiment.

    I use ATI MMC and XP MCE on mine with the HDTV wonder and x1300.
    Work's ok for me so here is my install list.

    DirectX 9
    ..NET Framework 2.0 and updates

    7-2_xp_dd_ccc_wdm_enu_41238 (CCC 7.2)
    6-1_hdtv_83-2036_wdm (WDM)
    9-14_mmc_uci (DAO)
    atiCDwiz (Decoder)
    6-12_xcode_38463 (Encoder and stuff)
    9-16_mmc_enu (MMC 9.16)
    3-03_rw_enu (Remote)

    I've noticed anything under 90% signal strength and mine will
    do things like change channels slow or worse with a weak signal.

    Have over 100 megs of free disk space I assume.

    I installed and then uninstalled .NET 3 with out it causing any problems
    that I have noticed as well for what it's worth.
