No TV. Latest casualty: DVICO FusionHD DVB-T card. No XP64 drivers now (and not for a while, at least). So I'm taking it out and lending it to a friend indefinitely. I built a (32 bit) Media Center PC the other week, so it's not a total loss, I can still watch recorded shows...
There seems to be a good amount of gaming community buzz around AMD64 systems and WinXP x64, but the driver situation is reminiscent of the Windows 2000 situation - few drivers, little perceived market penetration to date, and little to be gained by the migration for your average gamer right now (eg, it's week one, give it a little time). I'm not average, I'm a superb gamer, thank you.
As an example: I was going to buy Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory ($AUD80) and Pandora Tomorrow ($AUD30) today, but backed away after vaguely remembering that I'd heard the copy protection scheme for CT used a 32 bit driver, so I can't run it. The demo runs really nicely, though - perhaps they'll release an x64-compatible patch...
I'm also missing PasteOff, and other silly little .Net utilities that I built with VS 2003, as there's no Framework installed yet. I could install .Net 2.0 Beta 1, but I'm convinced that the .Net Framework Beta 2 is due sometime soon, so I don't want to waste 30% of my precious 10 gig per month downloading and installing an earlier (say, CTP) build, only to have it superseded by the "real" beta with the go-live license on the day (and most likely, the hour) I succumb. I can live without it for another month. Or I could try rewriting it in "real man's" Java. :)
One other oddity: my tooltips are appearing behind the taskbar, unless I disable "Always on top" for it. Not sure if this is an Nvidia driver thing yet.
Back to the MCE for some late night TV...
I've been thinking about going 64 bits too, but I'm worried abouth what I'll have to give up, so this post was more food for thought .. :)
Yeah, it's in a bit of an odd place at the moment, but it's only going to get better from here.
On the plus side, doing day-to-day things seems noticeably faster... just need to wait for stronger game support before I'm happier.
About the tooltips appearing behind the taskbar, this is something that I'm suffering from as well - but unless you were refering to nVidia mobo drivers it ain't a mobo problem. Because I have ATI ones. Are you using build 1433?
I'm using an Nforce 4 A8N-SLI with a 6600GT, so I have both the motherboard drivers and video drivers installed.
I noticed it wasn't a problem before launching a Direct3D game, it only seems to happen afterwards (eg, from bootup, it's good).
Using RTM build.
