    Vista SP2 - Any takers?

    Looks like this rolls-up the patches released since SP1 but there doesn't seem to be all that much in it other than that Vista now supports writing Blu-ray discs. There was also some blurb about losing your sound card after installing SP2. Frankly I don't have time to test this right now - anyone else with a spare few hours to install and debug this beast?

    Cheers

    Re: Vista SP2 - Any takers?

    Just for a test Steve, I just have made one of my bootdiscs to a testdisc for updates running all the windows auto updates including IE 8 and also CC 9,5.

    The SP 2 hasn´t been released in swedish yet, all seems to work well so far, no guarantees however.

    Avid version on this disc is 3,13

    I should have known you'd have tried this, Tomas. Thanks for the feedback. I have just finished ghosting my machine and am considering trying the SP2 update later today. My biggest concern is the Microsoft caveat that states you might lose your soundcard (and from the little research I did on this issue, the RealTek chipset is prone to this).

    It won't be the first time I've rolled-back a change (thank goodness for Acronis True-Image).

    Cheers

    I ditto that, we Acronis users should get together some day to take a beer and sing a lovesong to that app, in case something goes wrong with my own little test, it is just to go back to the usb drive and get a correct well working bootdrive, with all the correct licenses on it.

    Re: Vista SP2 - Any takers?

    I've gone and installed updated drivers for my on-board RealTek HD audio followed by the Vista SP2 update. Everything seems to be working fine (even audio punch-in) although I have yet to try capturing video over firewire (I'll get to that tonight). Otherwise things seem to be working well.

    Re: Vista SP2 - Any takers?

    As a side note - I've always had trouble recording into SoundBooth and Audition with my RealTek HD device selected. Media Composer was OK with it. The driver I was using was the one that came with my P5W DH Deluxe MB and dated 2007. Asus now has an update for this driver which offers Windows 7 compatibility (found it on their site under downloads for the P5W DH Deluxe). I installed this update before Vista SP2 because of the reported issue with SP2.

    In my subsequent testing I find that the problems I was having recording audio into SoundBooth and Audition have been resolved by this new driver. Your mileage may vary.

    Re: Vista SP2 - Any takers?

    I finally got around to some HDV capture over firewire with my FX1 - no problems. So for me, Vista 64 SP2 works with MC 3.5.1 with QT 7.6, FX 3700 (169.47), etc.
