    I am using the latest driver patches etc. ASUS P4C800 Dlx, 1 gig ram, 2.8 gh
    P4, XP Pro w/all patches. When using the TV player with IE, IE crashes and
    cant be restarted. The audio remains on and system must be rebooted. I got
    the following from ATI tech but it does not help. Any ideas?

    Thank you for contacting ATI Technical Support Canada.

    Regarding system locks up if TV player and Windows Explorer are being used:

    Please find following, a list of the recommended BIOS settings for AGP VGA

    1. Video BIOS Shadow and Video BIOS Cacheable - ENABLED
    2. C8000-CBFFFF Shadow and CC000-CFFFF - ENABLED
    3. AGP Aperture size - min = 64 MB, test at values upto half of your system

    I.E. = Internet Explorer
    W.E. = Windows Explorer

    Which is it? Why would you be in either when using the TV? Or are you
    saying that "Windows Explorer" error alert pops up during the start of
    the TV? I would look to DirectX or possibly a bios setting as
    mentioned by ATI.

    net as provided by the ATI IE plug in. DirectX checks out fine. The
    recomended BIOS setting havent helped so far, I am still trying different
