This is probably a dumb question but... does this STV require the latest beta, or can it be used with earlier versions of Sage (I'm running 6.5.9)?

I don't own an HD-PVR but I have a lot of experience with AV equipment and it sounds to me like you might have what's called a "ground loop". It's hard to explain in less than 1,000 words but...

For what it's worth...

I actually use both. As Gerry says, Arcsoft works with many more formats than nVidia. But at least on SD MPEG2 material (DVDs in particular), the picture quality with the...

Jeff,

The problem you're having... is it on the server or the client? I've got offline DVDs working fine on my server, but on the clients I get just the behavior you describe. :confused:
