    Update on the ATI HD 2600XT, it's going back for a refund.

    For one the fan heatsink assy is too small and noisy even with the case closed. 2nd the the drivers are buggy with the card I've had 2 BLUE SCREENS, I haven't seen a blue screen for years. 3rd, the X800XL renders Xplode much faster in HD then the 2600XT in SD, so it's going back.

    At least I created a system disk image before installing the 2600XT. Re-installing the X800XL and re-imaging the disk only took 20min. The X800XL is very quite and FAST with Xplode for Edius and Pro in HD!

    I bought the Diamond ATI Radeon HD 2600XT 512MB GDDR3 for another system from Future Shop on sale till the Sept 20/07 for CAN$199.99 regular price is CAN$349.99.

    I gave it a try in my Editing System with the latest 7.9 drivers.

    With the DVStorm the overlay setting in Edius has to be set from NONE to UPDATE OVERLAY to get overlay. Both Xplode for Edius and Xplode Pro had RT performance with the DVStorm.

    Using OHCI SD the overlay worked correctly. Both Xplode for Edius and Xplode Pro also had RT performance with OHCI SD.

    Using OHCI HD the overlay worked correctly. BUT both Xplode for Edius and Xplode Pro would not work correctly even the preview was incorrect. Changing both Xplode's render engine to universal would preview correctly without RT and it was slow. Since the ATI HD 2X00 hardware is "new" the drivers are more likely to be buggy.

    Plus PowerDVD 7.3 Ultra with the latest patch plays correctly HD videos created with Ulead MovieFactory. The CPU has very low usage around 2% on my Editing System. I think I'll keep it in the Editing System since I edit with the DVStorm. I'll get another one for the other system.

    I tried with 720/30 and 720/24 HDV footages.
    I also tried in SD project with some old SD 4:3 footages. No luck, just how I thought.

    So what you're saying is the ATI 2600Pro will not do Xplode in RT with HD footage BUT SD footage is RT with Xplode. Did you test both Edius Xplode and Xplode Pro?

    Reading this I may just stick with my ATI X800XL. HD playback with PowerDVD can be done on my other networked PC that has an ATI X1600Pro.

    Thanks...Angelo

    I just borrowed my body's MSI 2600Pro PCI Express card and installed the latest ATI driver just to try if this work with Xplode as "Aristotelis" said it.
    Well...same old story. For those of you who still want to use Xplode the highest card is the X850.
    So.... nothing changed.
    BTW: I talk about HDV footages in HDV project in Edius 4.51c .

    Direct3D is locked here too when using the Storm...but if you don't have a Storm card, D3D is available???

    It is locked on my DVStorm2 and OHCI, so I'm going to say it's normal. I do recall on this forum that one of the GV people stated that those setting where for the NX/SP hardware.

    The DVX should be similar to DVStorm. Direct3D is not supported with DVStorm/DVX etc hardware, only NX/SP/Newer cards and OHCI mode.

    This is not an ATI problem, it is about DVX card.

    Even with the DVStorm they are grayed-out (or locked). I think they are unlocked when the NX is used.

    Since you have not video issues, you're good to go. :)

    Myself I can't get PowerDVD 7.3 Ultra to play created HD DVD files with the ATI X800XL, I'll get the ATI HD2600Pro when they hit the market at my local PC shops.

    Any ideas why the video display type is locked? Has anyone tried a similar vga?
