Windows 7: W7 & Extender

W7 & Extender

I have a D-Link DSM750; works great on Vista. When I run under Windows 7, all is fine and I hear the sound of the extender connecting. As soon as it connects, the tv screen goes solid blue....sounds are there, but cant see anything. Works fine on PC screen.

WINDOWS 7 64-bit Ultimte

I am considering buying this, can you confirm that it actually will work with Windows 7? I currently have my video card hooked up to my TV via extremely long svideo cable, I thought this would be better.....any thoughts?

This is a very bad time to buy an extender. Of the current ones aside from the XBox 360 have been basically discontinued. Wait until CEDIA next week and hopefully a the future of Media Center Extenders will be more clear. If current v2 extenders work ok but unless you get a very very good price on them (my price point would be $50) I'd rather spend a little extra and ION based system.
