CinePlayer initial display problem

Question

New download of EMC10Suite October 19,2007

Installed fine

Everything works fine EXCEPT CinePlayer

 

When invoking CinePlayer from Start Menu, from EMC Menu or by inserting a DVD, the CinePlayer display itself comes up unintelligible because of many horizontal lines running through it. The DVD movie itself looks & plays perfect, I just can't see the CinePlayer buttons and title bar, etc. I have a grabbed a print screen if you give me an email address to send it to.

 

I am running:

WinXP Pro w/ all sp's and updates

Matrox G550 with latest video drivers

1600 x 1200 screen res

 

I have tried:

dumming down the screen resolution, color quality and hardware acceleration

 

Still no luck. I just spent $100 on this and I woudl appreciate your help. Jim

I could be wrong here but isn't that particular graphics card 32 MB video RAM with a 166 MHz bus speed?

 

It's possible it just isn't up to the job of handling the graphics output

 

Info on that card can be found here

And you know that those minimum requirements are Roxio's idea of a joke. Those specs are the minimum for a computer to boot up and have nothing to do with what it really takes to run the software. ;)

That is the correct card. I am a application developer and I beat the heck out of this card and it works flawlessly in a tremendous number of applications - except CinePlayer that is.

 

Chip Type: Matrox G550

DAC Type: Integrated, 360 Mhz

Memory Size: 32 MB

Adapter String: Matrox Millenium G550AGP

Bios Info: v1.5.015 (latest according to Matrox)

 

Where do we go from here. Thanks Jim
