    Problem; cannot see 'videos' play on TV (yet they appear OK on the
    monitor) using "Clone" view... (fixed this once before, on another
    system, cannot figure it out now).

    Subject pretty much sais it all... when I play a video, I can see it
    fine on my monitor, but, it appears as a black-window on my TV. I can
    switch to TV+analog, and it'll appear on the TV, but then, it won't
    appear on the PC. I do alot of viewing and editing and I often review my
    work on the TV, instead of sitting at the PC for hrs at a time, so it's
    kind of a pain having to continuously switch views. I had this same
    problem on my son's PC, and fixed it once, (this was before I gave it to
    him, so he doesn't use the TV-out feature), but I cannot seem to recall
    what I did in the settings, to fix the problem. Any help would be

    The card I'm using is a geforce FX 5200 w/256mb DDR.

    Any ideas?

    I am having the same problem with a Predator MX 440 8X card being used
    in a Dell PowerEdge 400sc, with Windows 2000.

    The problem shows up one other way. If a do a screen capture with the
    Print screen key, the saved screen has a black window where the video
    should be.

    Disabling DirectX with the "Display > Setting > Advanced > Trouble
    Shooting > Hardware Acceleration" setting clears the problem, but of
    course causes other problems.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanx for the suggestion, I tried the two other video-output options in
    MPC, and still, no difference. (I do not like, WMP, myself).

  5. Disable overlay and VMR (software rendering). Then it'll be software
    rendering by default for all media players which use the Windows defaults.
