Hi just had an email from my son about a problem he has,
He is using the pc as a telly, and recently the live tv has become "jerky". Its like the picture hangs for a short while before catching up. He has downloaded the latest driver from nvidia but its not fixed it. Any ideas?
spec vista 32 bit 2gb of ram.
nvidia geforce 7300le graphics card
He uses media center that comes with vista. no yellow warning boxes in device manageras far as he can remember, No new software recently installed.


Allso he tells me Its not the aerial because when he is using the telly as a telly rather than a monitor, it works fine
Any thoughts i can pass on?
Thanks in advance.

Try restarting media centre, not the whole computer. I use MCE2005 and have the same problem occasionally - especially after it has been on standby.
Also try and eliminate as many other applications running in the background.
