Unable to change Color Correction for Overlay/VMR

    I got myself a new LCD monitor yesterday and was experiencing some
    problems with full-screen video/tv playback. I downloaded the latest
    ForeceWare drivers (56.64) for my ti4200 and that apparantly solved the
    problem. But now I have another problem. Overlay surfaces (from my tv
    card or from Media Player) always display way to dark but I have always
    been able to correct that by changing the "Color Correction" settings in
    the NVidia control panel. But with the new drivers, I can't change them
    because they are disabled/grayed out for "Overlay/VMR". I read somewhere
    you need to have an overlay surface running before you could make any
    adjustments, but that doesn't change anything on my system. The controls
    are still disabled.

    Anyone know what's going on?

    PS: my old monitor was a CRT connected through the card's analog out (of
    course), while the new LCD monitor is connected through the DVI output.

    First question is are you rendering on the overlay??

    Also I have found the drivers later then 45.23 to very damaged with
    the overlay on older cards.

    Yes. Strange thing is, I *can* change the overlay's "hue" and
    "saturation" (which is on another tab of the control panel).
    With the previous version I used (53.04) *I *was* able to change the
    color correction.
