    Darn...I got all excited as there is now an WHQL Windows 7 x64 driver available (185.85) and one of the "new features" is increased GPU hardware acceleration support...well I just did a clean install of the driver and I still get the error...

    @Shades228: The question is whether it is a Windows 7 "issue" or did they change something that now requires the Directv2PC developer to "get up to speed" with the changes?

    I'm sure that is based on if you emailed Microsoft or Cyberlink. The fact that it worked in another build without an updated, I'm guessing I missed something as it still worked for me but not many others, is that Windows changed where it has that information or removed what Direc2PC looks for and cannot find it now. It works in other OS's as well so again this seems more like a Windows 7 issue. However I'm really tempted to try the XP shell and then run it in that and see if it works.

    I just tried 185.85 and 5102 and it didn't work. I might try your suggestion tomorrow with XP Virtualization.

    I just tried it in the XP shell within Windows 7 and it all goes ok until it tries to access the programs on my HR20...it looks like it is loading them yet the list is blank...it may be a networking issue with the virtual shell and my network but I'm not sure what to mess with...

    Tools - Settings - Networkworking - Choose real NIC not virtual and your shows will show up. If you do that your shows will show up and then you will get a message saying that the software is not designed to run in virtual pc mode and recommends that you quit it. Then when you ignore the warning and hit play on a show it tells you that..... Driver doesn't support blah blah blah. So it won't run in an XP shell and I'm willing to bet a Vista shell will say the same thing.

    It's because Microsoft changed something in Win7. I did the upgrade from Vista x64, and Win7 RC wouldn't install until I removed Directv2pc. The Directv2pc guys need to get up to speed.

    Folks,

    As of today, the new default Beta @ DIRECTV is the version 5102 that was previously available here @ DBSTalk.com. Please do not download again if you already have DIRECTV2PC installed. You should be able to use the Update Feature from within DIRECTV2PC for future downloads.

    The one on DIRECTV is no different than what is here, so if you are having problems with Win 7, then you will have problem with the one from DIRECTV as well.

    Cheers

    Its disheartening when Directv starts using version 5102 as the default download, nvidia releases WHQL certified drivers and MS get the RC out to everyone and then Directv2pc doesnt work. On a positive note, if you uninstall 5102 and load the previous version 4526 it does in fact work.

    I think that one works because it uses the cpu while the newer versions offload the work to the gpu...I found that 4526 works for me too but trickplay is very sluggish...

    I'm hoping as more people install the Windows 7 RC Directv will become more aware of this problem and will get a new beta out...

    I doubt it any time soon. We're running a beta in a beta. They won't work on win 7 functionality until it's closer to a release date.

    I was just hoping given the fact they fixed the activation problem people were having with Windows 7 awhile ago...the fact they did a specific fix for Windows 7 then keeps me hopeful now...

    I certainly wouldn't expect anything in the next few weeks although I'm sure there will be a fix at some point.

    It's just this new version that doesn't work. 4526 works fine. Just went ahead and reinstalled it. Also I am running Windows 7 RC and the newest Nvidia drivers for my 8800GTS.
