Is this also a known problem with Windows Vista Beta 2?  I recently upgraded
from a single core to a dual core and now I'm having random freezes and BSOD
while watching live TV.

I did a complete reinstall of Beta 2 and in both cases, Vista detected my
dual core processor and installed drivers for it.  

Do I still need to install additional drivers?  The ones from AMD that are
provided in this thread will not work with Vista.  I keep getting "Only for
XP" error messages.

Any help would be greatly apperciate.  This is a very frustrating and time
consuming problem....and it's wreaking havoc on my hard drive.

Is this a problem with Beta 2?   I recently upgraded to a dual core and now
my Media Center is freezing, going to a black screen, and getting BSOD
randomly when I watch live TV.

I've reinstalled Beta 2 and in both cases, Vista detected my dual core and
installed drivers.

Are  additional drivers required?  The ones provided in this thread are for
XP only.

Thanks.

Sorry for the double post and ignore my messages here since I have posted in
greatly details of my problems in the following thread:

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/en-us/default.mspx?&query=Dual+core+tv&lang=en&cr=US&guid=&sloc=en-us&dg=microsoft.public.windows.mediacenter&p=1&tid=96f49e0f-6b93-4cb6-a48f-19aad222dd69&mid=e6ab6c10-ce2e-4fb8-b176-a6c062d58977

I was under the assumption that this was a Vista Help and Support board
only, but it appears we have XP issues as well.
