    My problem that i've always had with fglrx and not with radeon driver, is when i open a program that uses bttv (tv capture), sometimes x server crashes (very frequent), and other times it turns black the screen, so i have to switch to a virtual terminal (ctrl+alt+(F1-F6)) and back again to desktop (ctrl+alt+f7).

    I've seen this problem searching in google with a lot of people with fgrlx and programs that uses tv capture. All the answers says it's a fglrx problem. With radeon driver, i've never had problems with my tv capture and using tv programs.

    EDITED: This is my configuration:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
            Identifier      "ATI Technologies Inc RV350 AQ [Radeon 9600]"
            Driver          "fglrx"
            BusID           "PCI:1:0:0"
            Option          "VideoOverlay"          "on"
            Option          "OpenGLOverlay"         "off"
            Option          "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps"
            Option          "UseFastTLS"            "2"
            Option          "BusType"               "AGP"
            Option          "PseudoColorVisuals"    "off"
            Option          "UseInternalAGPGART"    "no"
            Option          "mtrr"                  "off"
            Option          "no_accel"              "no"
            Option          "no_dri"                "no"
            Option          "EnablePrivateBackZ"    "no"
    EndSection

      Besides pre-R600 support and AIGLX? I wouldn't ask much... If they deliver that I'm happy already.

      Hopefully we're near the release date now, so we shouldn't have to wait long to use it for real .

        sorry to repeat this but I realized that yoshi314 and rthorntn actually discussed it in a different thread and there didn't seem to be a solid answer so maybe Michael or someone can clear this up:

        is UVD currently supported in fglrx 8.41 ?

        if not, is it a possibility that 8.42 will add support for hardware decoding h.264, VC-1 (i.e, UVD support)?

          AIGLX should be supported from r400 cards aswell, from there on
          cause there is not many people who using pre r400 for games aswell.

            I hope today is the day the 8.42 driver comes out. I'm pretty anxious to see what it brings to the table.

                  Micheal, do you know the date when the driver will go out? If you know that it's not today I think it's because you have the real date.

                    I am afraid I can't comment on specific dates due to NDA.

                    • So you know the date because if you don't know the date you can said "no".

                      Ok, I will Wait.

                      Will you give a test of Catalyst 8.42 in the same time that ATI put the new driver on the web?
