    Any word on what the 10.7 application profile does? I wish they could include a release note with the application profiles too.

    Meh. Overdrive doesn't work for me (since 10.5) and some games/apps have a weird stuttering effect (since 10.6). Back to 10.4 it is. HD 4850 on 32bit Win 7.

    On Win7 64 bit on a 4850, I was trying to watch a 720p H.264 file and the screen went blank as soon as I opened it in mpc-hc and I got the "the driver has stopped responding bla bla bla", so I tried again and my pc locked up. Upon restarting it seems to work fine.

    Worked fine for me on Win7-64bit with the various H.264 720p/1080p videos I've thrown at it.

    "Tools -> Preferences and Input & Codecs and tick Use GPU acceleration. Remember to press Save to save VLC settings and restart VLC after that to make sure changes are enabled."

    Huh, had to search The VideoLAN forums to find that solution.

    Seems one person might have gotten an HD3200 to use GPU acceleration.

    "i have crappy hd3200 and it works brilliantly!"

    An official reply was, "if you have a Radeon 3xxx, it might work, or it might not.
    This will depend on your CPU and on your motherboard."

    I find so far that the GPU acceleration works very well with my 5770.

    I think it depends on HD3xxx model. Integrated (chipset) GPUs were released later and supported newer revision of UVD processor (sometimes reffered as UVD+ or UVD2.0)

    It works fine for me too, just didn't want to right after I installed the drivers *shrug*
    Edit- driver just stopped responding while watching an xvid file. Looks like I'm going to roll back to the 10.6 cats. Btw, this is the first driver problem I've had since i got my 4850 last year.

    Be sure it's not a video encoding issue before you change drivers.

    No ATI product supports the hardware decoding of an xvid file.

    I dont think Nvidia does either. If you look at all the HTPC/ION reviews, decoding of XVID/DiVX takes up more CPU than even 1080p clips.
