To D12, I use Winamp 5.03 while Miksa78 use Winamp 3. Ive got a Radeon 9600 Pro, Miksa78 got a Radeon 8500 other users have other Radeon 8xxx or 9xxx cards (see also twin thread Im refering to) ... we all seem to have the same problem.
Im using winxp, others 2000 so it does not seem to be OS dependant or Wimamp version dependant, Ive got the same error with any version 5.
TomyLobo, Im not sure I understand you interely, but to clear things up. We are NOT running extended mode (meaning the windows desktop is spanned over more than one screen) ... we are running in clone mode meaning we only have one desktop shown on both displays (monitor/tv). The trick is the ATI CATALYST drivers support what is called "theater mode". This means an overlay (eg a videoclip played in Windows Media Player or Winamp) will be shown in full screen on the secondary display (in this case a tv).
In windowed mode: When I activate overlay mode in AVS I expect to get a full screen view of the AVS on the tv, however all I get is a frozen picture of the AVS at the time I activated overlay mode. If I press the "default" button selecting the default overlay color the picture is updated ... however it is not easy to press the button 25 times a second
In fullscreen mode: I select use overlay, choose a resolution and press go. The tv shows a frozen distorted picture while AVS works fine on my monitor.
As stated before running a videoclip in winamp with overlay activated works just fine, the videoclip is played fullscreen on the tv. The same applies to Windows Media Player.
The question is. Should we not be able to see AVS overlay just the same as video? Is it a Winamp3/5 bug? Is it something else?
