    Legacy Overlay / Video playback black screen issue


    I had an 'Serious Error' appear on my Symphony a couple of days ago, after searching through the forums i found that LegacyOverlay Off solved the problem but obviously now i cannot see video out of the source/record windows. 

    I can't find a way of turning off Legacy Overlay to see video again, the console command 'Legacyoverlay off' doesn't do anything at all and its driving me crazy! This 'serious error' has never occured before now and i really need to get my symphony working asap as I have a large amount of jobs starting in the next 12 hours. 

    My specs are:

    HP xw8400, Symphony, Vista Business 64bit, Intel 3GHz Dual Core, 6GB RAM, NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500,

    Have you tried 'Legacyoverlay on' ?

    I think it's a toggle command.

    Worst case uninstall the Symphony software. Delete any remaining unwanted files and re-install.

    Also is there a reason your still on 5.0.0 and not ?
