    I did the same thing for now although I would much rather have a working version that uses the GPU rather than the CPU...and Strongbad18...you are right...Directv has version 5102...not easy to find version 4526 now...

    I loaded new version and can't see HR-20 from it. I can ping the server and it replys O.K. Network connection is fine on the HR-20.

    Nothing has changed on my PC, so I'm lost.

    Can anyone send a quick checklist of things to re-check?

    I also have the old version of Direct2PC setup file on my box. If it's not illegal to send it to someone via e-mail, PM me and I'll send you it.

    Can someone upload the older version to rapidshare or megaupload or something and post a link? I don't think it would be illegal as long as no keys are posted (obviously).

    Same as others report with v5102 and Win 7 RC. Same GFX Gt8800 Video card and system running Win XP works fine, dual boot to Win 7 and DTV2PC fails saying "... your graphics card does not support screen capture protection...". Latest V185 drivers from Nvidia installed same problem.

    Right now I am using two gtx 260s in sli with Vista 64 and have minimal problems with the 185.85 drivers and v5102. If I get an error message and it will not work then I reboot my Directv receiver and then it works fine. Then only problem is it takes like 20 minutes to reboot.

    I have the same issue. I wonder why they just didn't use the Vista drivers...:shrug: they seem to be working.

    Vista drivers in Win 7 will give the same error. It's obviously a change that happened in Win 7 from the 7000 build. In 7000 it worked fine any version after that had a problem.

    Quick question here as I am getting ready to buy a new laptop. With regards to the video needs, does the laptop need a seperate graphics card at 512mb or can it have a graphics accelerator that gets an allotment of up to 896mb or greater

    Others may be able to give you better info, but laptops can use "cheap" video chips that simply don't work well with this app.
    "Cheap" Intel video chips have given problems, while the newer Intel "I think" work.
    I don't think laptops have a "separate graphics card", but I would look for a laptop with a good video chip. nVidia or ATI seem to work better than the cheap Intel.

    I don't think its a drver issue (at least in my case) the app simply shows that it is the OS that is not compatable. As a matter of fact at least with the ATI HD card I have I am getting 1080P resolution and with Vista I only got 720P.

    You should have given me one of these :p. I have a onboard HD3200 and I could never get it above 720p with Vista but I also never used the ATI drivers either, maybe that was the problem. Once I put the RC 64 on it showed 1080i so I went to ATI's website and they had drivers dated like 4-28-09 and so I installed them and was able to get to 1080p60mhz.

    I wouldn't do something like that... :lol: :rolleyes:
    "I guessed" you might have been running 64 bit.
    My ATI is the [Asus] 3450 and their drivers.... [suck] which had me use ATI from last year.

    Downloading build 7127 of Windows 7 as we speak...I highly doubt Directv2PC will work but I'll try it...I always upgrade to new builds anyway :D

    Only problem with constantly upgrading is I keep having to get new Directv2PC keys...I'm running out of email addresses :)
