Windows 7: flickering INFO panel

flickering INFO panel

Hi all,

Have a strange problem. Live TV and videos etc. all work fine. The only problem I'm having is with the Synopsis panel that displays in the center of the screen and gives you for example the option to record a show will flicker. I am running Windows 7 86x on a 3.6 ghz PC with 2g ram, nvidia 6600 graphics card and a Hauppauge 2250 tuner. Any thoughts would greatly be appreciated. I am thinking of upgrading the video card but you would think that I would have other problems with live TV and such.

I suggest trying the most recent driver from the nVidia web site. The 6600 is fully supported in W7 with their latest and greatest. The 6600 may have an option in its control panel concerning overlays that might be worth changing.
