"The Drivers are a Nightmare"1.0 starson by hitrack
Pros: Tons of great features
Cons: Driver software is terrible
Summary: Had the card a year now and it's worked pretty good. O.K. for gaming as long as you keep all game detail to med-high settings. Games like Doom3 and Far Cry maxed out just are not playable.
PVR features are awesome and worked great for about a year, but when I went to upgrade the drivers all hell broke loose. The TV had no audio, and after uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers I now can no longer even get the WDM drivers to configure. This 9600xt AIW is driving me nuts. No video card should cause this much grief and headache to configure.
I'm sick and tired of playing with every version of display driver from cat 5.2 to 5.5 and MMC 9.03 to 9.08 and no luck. The whole thing is hooped. I'm now just using the display drivers only and gave up on gettin the MMC to work. I already formatted once and that solved nothing. ATI tech support was no help, the lady told me that with this card anything above MMC 9.03 won't work. I'm like your kidding!!! Your telling me that on a relatively new card like this that the latest drivers won't work!! What a joke.
If you like configuration nightmares and cursing at your computer I recomend getting a ATI AIW card.
