After booting my PC and Windows has loaded and MP loads, I see the "Waiting for TV Service" screen and then I get a black screen until I see the "Checking DirectX screen". As I have to use a 30s wait for my tuner, this is quite a while and obviously is quite concerning if you're not used to it or expect it and even if you are, is quite annoying.

I don't have this problem with 1.1.2, which I have on a separate partition.
