W7 & Extender

I have a D-Link DSM750; works great on Vista. When I run under W7, 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.

I am considering buying this, can you confirm that it actually will work with win7? 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.

USB 3.0 through old extender.
I currently have a USB 3.0 port and a 3.0 USB drive. If I use an old USB extender to connect the two will it still carry the signal at 3.0 speed or will it carry it at whatever speed the extender is. The extender is just a basic one.
