I will assume that I am correct.
Then allow me to gently say that you aren't and to correct you. The cards that have been declared "legacy" is everything from the X19XX series and down, everything from the HD2xxx series and up is still supported,



Part of thepcguy's is that the AGP cards aren't officially supported, and need the AGP hotfix driver,

Maybe Shawn can add that link into the first post, making note that it is for users of the relative AGP cards. As I understand it from the ATI/AMD forums that link isn't supposed change, just the links in it; usually a day or two after the official release.

Thanks for trying to help guys n' gals but I've tried the "Hotfix". It installs just like the whole CCC package so where the word "hotfix" has relevance I don't know. When installed unmodded it leaves an empty ATI folder in programs and doesn't add anything to the start menu.
Anyhoo... there doesn't seem to be one for 7 there, only for Vista 32 and I've tried that (with and without modding it with and without compatibility mode)
The modded install of the Hotfix does actually install files into the ATI programs folder and it puts a program choice on the start menu. Unfortunately CCC doesn't actually run when it is started from the start menu nor when the app is run from its folder in programs. In short - nothing happens.
Hmmm. Blatent AGPism on ATI's part I'd say.

Nevermind, I'm actually pretty happy with the card. It's just a shame that it can't do TV out on Windows 7.

Thanks for trying to help.

Thanks for that Jacee.
I'll give it a try but I'm still confused about the hotfix. Is it a patch to be installed after installing the main package? It seems to be a complete package.

OK - I've just tried the following.
I installed the package at Jacee's link ATI Catalystâ„¢ Display Driver 7 Beta - 32-Bit Edition.
It seemed to install OK but there was an empty ATI Technologies folder in Programs and no menu items in the Start Menu.
I then installed the "hotfix" on top of that and I now have the CCC options in the Start Menu and files in the Programs folder.
Trouble is, none of the options work. When any of them are chosen, nothing happens.
Oh well, I'm off to do yet another System Resore. Any ideas are still welcome.

look closely

- the v9.9 driver for Vista 64-bit and Windows7 64-bit are in the same package..

- it works a treat with the 64-bit RC

I am using 32 bit Windows 7 build 7100.
Hmm. Maybe I haven't clear exactly what I want to be able to do when I said "TV Out".
The card has no tuner on it. It's just a simple graphics card.
I used to have a Matrox card that I could hook up to my monitor and my TV.
Everything that played in a video overlay was sent out the S-Video to my TV so when I played stuff in a small VLC Player window on the monitor I'd also get it full screen on the TV. Matrox calls this DVD Mode.
I thought that I was going to be able to do this with the ATI HD 2400 Pro because it has two VGA outs plus an S-Video out and it was marketed at having "TV Out".
I've tried using one of the VGA heads with a converter to s-video and I've also tried using the s-video out but can't manage to configure the card to throw out a picture to the TV when I play video in VLC Player.
I figure that the CCC software would enable me to be able to do this. Am I wrong?
