RESOLVED - READ PG 2 FOR FIX
I've recently upgraded from EMC9 to EMC10, and this issue was in both. Before I get into it I have to say that it worked properly before, with this same setup, but now it's just gone crazy. I'll supply screenshots to help illustrate. Ok, just found this forum doesn't allow screenshots..darn! I'll link to PhotoBucket I guess.
Trying to burn movies using MyDVD10 and the Menu background is totally messed up to the point of being unworkable! It's chopped into horizontal bands and misaligned (and enlarged it seems). I can't find buttons on it or edit it, but if I just let it be it will diplay properly in the burned product....(?). It's only in the MyDVD 10 interface it seems, that this display issue arises, since as I said above...if I just burn the project everything is fine, except for the fact that I can't edit the button names or anything cause I can't SEE them!
This started even with EMC9 and I figured with EMC10 now, it should work properly, but it doesn't.
If I change the background tho, it will flash with the proper display and then 3 seconds later it will go wonky again. This happens anytime I attempt to make a change, like "Edit Menu Style" or something...it'll display properly for a few seconds and then BAM...cut into bands and unintelligable!
Here's a screenshot of an image, I'll choose a simple one so you can easily see the difference:
1st, this is the image that I get in MyDVD menu - http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/3927/mydvd1ba0.jpg
This is what it's Supposed to be - http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/1678/mydvd3lf3.jpg
Here's another example. What I get in MyDVD - http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/9509/mydvd2ax1.jpg

I've worked in MyDVD9 many times and I'm very computer savvy, and I simply cannot find any reason for this. I have a Geforce 8800 GTS OC2 320MB card with latest drivers. Another stupid issue that just showed it's face (right now in fact), if I try to launch MyDVD10 when I have Media Center running, I get a message stating that I don't have the graphics resources to launch MyDVD10.....huh....I doubt that very much! Minimal background programs running (AV, Firewall, KB & Mouse drivers and Graphics drivers), 320MB on card RAM, 4 G's physical RAM, and 4 G's virtual memory so I doubt my resources are "used up".
Anyway, I need to figure out why my menu backgrounds are getting messed up. Any ideas are welcome...I have tried everything I can find in main and right click menu's to no avail yet.
