    When I start MP, the splashscreen freezes when it is initializing DirectX. I have installed the latest DirectX driver. I have no problem starting MP on the same PC with Windows XP installed... Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

    The requirement for MediaPortal is a DirectX 9 capable card w/min 128 MB memory. Yours is only DX8, so this might be your problem, although I know ppl are using MP w/DX8 cards, it is not recommended.

    There is a box you should tick in MP config for your hibernation problem.
