I installed the patch from the Microsoft website which enables purevideo for 6200/6600/6800 cards for WMV and now when i open now divx video files they are all black and white!!!.
If i deselect use high quality mode and select USE OVERLAYS i do not have that problem anymore.Can anyone explain to me what happens?Is the patch that is causing problems?

I had the same problem as you. Don't know why it does it. Also, my WMP-10 wanted to update to an older version of WMP, from 39?? to 38?? something. I finally uninstalled it all and let Windows Update reinstall their latest version: 3646.

Figuered if I wanted to watch HD I'd go into my living room and watch HDTV.

This problem has also affected the ATI people. One solution is to reinstall the divx/xvid codecs. Also, if you happen to be using PowerDVD's or WinDVD's MPEG4 codec to view divx/xvid videos, then uninstall/unregister them and use the "official" divx/xvid codecs (preferably the ones included in the K-Lite Codec Pack).
