    Hi,
    Can you check if this still is a issue with a fresh SVN?

    The problem I can see from your log is:
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 Dvdplayer9:disable line 21
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 DVDPlayer9:failed vmr9 not connected
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 DVDPlayer9:cleanup DShow graph
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 1 vmr9:Dispose
    01/04/2006 13:55:34 VMR7Helper:AddVMR7
    & it's the VMR7 that gives flickering screen.

    There have been some fixes around this lately so it could be gone.

    Regards
    Roy

    Flickering problem still exists.

    However, the other problems have gone away.

    Thanks
