nVidia Purevideo problem

I purchased the nVidia Purevideo decoders (bronze) and have set my SageTV properties to use the nVidia decoders as the MPEG2 Video DEcoder Filter, the MPEG2 Audio Decoder FIlter, the DVD Video Decoder Filter and the DVD Audio Decoder Filter.

When I start watching live TV, or a DVD, the nVidia icon appears in my system tray. However, if I right-click on it and select Properties, nothing happens. Same thing if I double click on it. I can't seem to find a program group for nVidia, so no help there.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have RadLight Filter Manager installed, if that can be used to help me, although I admit I'm a little unsure of where I should be looking in there.

Hi CHughes,
As far as I know you must be using WMPlayer (not in full screen) and have a dvd or media file playing and you will get icon in tray. I am very surprised you have an icon while using Sage.

If you select the Nvidia decoder by name you can't access the tray icon. If the Nvidia decoder is the default decoder, you can select default instead of Nvidia for the decoder and access the tray icon that way.

Or the easiest way is to just playback a mpeg file using windows media player and access the tray icon that way.
