I had the same thing happen a little while ago just after I installed the latest Nvidia Beta driver 182.05 but it only happened the one time and after it happened I also disabled the OC on my graphics card in case that was causing the problem.

Well I wasn't really suggesting anything but if you have an overclocked GFX card you may want to change it back to default values and if you have recently changed the display driver try rolling back to an earlier one to see if the problem persist, if neither of those things help you it might just be another Beta Bug that needs reporting.

Same problem

I was having the same problem with the 64 bit version of 7058. I ended up having to revert to the 32 bit version as a result. Kind of sucks since now I can't access all of my memory...

Mine works fine

Using Pinnacle PCI express with Pctv 320cx driver.

Windows 7 x-64 build 7048.

There must be some defect with your Video Driver (Why is it always nvidia -- they seem to cause 90% of the probs).

Try switch off some of the 3D hardware acceleration settings / D.I.B overlay if they exist on your graphic card properties.
You can turn them back on if you need them after you've finished watching TC.

cheers
