Ati Catalyst 8.12 W7 Black levels way off

Im running Windows 7 Beta 7000 x64 with an HD 4870 under Catalyst 8.12. everything is fine except for video being washed out with contrast maxed out on sd video (hd video is also fine) I know this is a problem with vista aswell (8.11 + 8.12 only) is there a windows 7 fix for it?

Thanks,

I had the same problem after installing the windows 7 catalysts drivers , there was a windows update driver installed , I rolled back my display driver and it's back to normal .

I then hid the windows ati driver and will not install it again .

Boomstick777. I have the same problem so I ran DXVAChecker but could not see the BT601CSC tab, only two other tabs. Please can you tell me how you managed to change the setting.
