But the ATI media center is non compatable maybe it has to do with the Dx9 thing you were saying though I saw nothing of Dx in the documentation.
The best one that had no mention of 7 on the box? No idea that DirectX 9 card's are obsolete? Even my integrated 4200 in one of my PC's supports DirectX 10.1.

Hey Buddies!
This one hack I tried long back and it seems will have to do this again. If anyone can give me a sure link to download RC version of windows 7 I might try this and let you know. I am already downloading from torrents. Hope they come out to be RC. I am very sure this hack is going to work. will be back soon.

Considering Win7 was in Beta, Nothing had Win7 on it yet and no the box didn't say DX 9 It had Vista on the box which leads me to think Dx 10.

you do know we are talking "TV card" not GPU
