You have yet to demonstrate they have anything but a common cause. We know they DO have a common solution...downgrade to 173 (but then you sacrifice HDMI audio)

Until we can get developer attention, I think we're hosed beyond our ability to make this work (the drivers are just too broken). I got initial emails from the devs on my bug report, but since then not a peep. My ATI card is due to arrive on Tuesday (if nvidia ever fixes this, I can just re-sell it, but I'm fed up waiting for them to acknowledge these issues)(I bought ATI b/c I don't believe in rewarding bad support by giving the company more $$)

Edit: still not sure why you are posting here anyway since you don't have an 8200
