  • Video playback under Vista appears to consume up to 100% more CPU. (The 'Recorded TV' samples use 30-40% under XP, 60+% under Vista), although this may be a (display) driver issue.
  • Although the video does not work by default under Media Centre, the same samples play back fine under Media Player
  • The WildPackets Wireless driver can also be used as an alternate driver for HP's Atheros based 802.11 a/b/g card - although this may not interoperate correctly with the QMenu.

SD Card Works

Got this note from Pirnie.

Still investigating.

I finally got the SD card working. Quite by accident, I think.
I downloaded the driver patch from Microsoft, unpacked the files, and manually copied the files to the Windows System 32 directory. Then I uninstalled the existing drivers, and had windows search for new drivers. Don't know if this is related, but I also had a San Disk USB drive installed when Windows searched for new drives. In the SD slot I had a 512 Mb card.
Vista found the drivers, installed them, and saw the SD card.
I don't claim any knowledge as to what I did correctly, but it's working, for now.

Eye candy

As a completely unrelated note, if you are looking for some eye candy, you might consider dual-booting Linux. I managed to get Compiz Fusion to work on TC1100 under Debian and Ubuntu. Compiz Fusion has plugins that look exactly like the Flip 3D switcher in Vista and some more interesting ones. The performance is good enough to use Compiz in daily work. I do not however recommend playing movies with Compiz enabled because of tearing issues. I posted some info on at the Linux Questions wiki. The only things that I didn't manage to get to work are the stylus-activated buttons (I have some clues about how to do that, but this requires hacking the Wacom driver) and the SD card reader. --Tweenk 06:27, 27 November 2007 (GMT-8)
