    Hi,

    I have a little problem with version 1.0. If I start to view a movie a second or more time without closing MP, the movie-window appears black.
    I tried the following:
    1. Start watching tv
    2. Stop watching tv
    3. Start watching tv again ---> black movie-screen

    1. Start watching a movie (mainmenu --> videos)
    2. Stop watching a movie
    3. Start watching a movie ---> black movie-screen

    1. Start watching tv
    2. Stop watching tv
    3. Start watching movie ---> everything works fine

    1. Start watching movie
    2. Stop watching movie
    3. Start watching tv ---> everything works fine

    Currently, I'm using EVR. Before I note this problem, I had once VMR9 enabled. But, while using VMR9, I got problems with the background-picture in the main-menu. After returning from powerDVD (I used HD-Starter-Plugin), the background was black. With EVR, the problem didn't occur. I don't know, if these two problems have the same reason.

    Bye,
    Christian

    Hi,

    I reinstalled the PC. And I saw, that the problem with the black background on vmr9 only appears with the christmas-pack. The Problem is, that the background with the snowfall is a gif-Image. With png, everything works right.

    I'll test the movie-problem later...

    Bye,
    Christian
