Thanks I have installed the official version of Eden and HDMI works fine so I will try the HD pack again later tonight.
PS: do you monitor every post on XMBC - dont know why they have not given you MOD status, amount of help you provide to the users.
This is nothing compare to installing the entire dripping system in my neighbor backyard.....

Time to update that GPU.
Oh man... what a pity!
Do you have a suggestion? What should I be looking for? Will any new generation graphics card do? Do I need to take into account that I am running Vista? I have never replaced a GPU but now that I was planning on giving my "old" PC a new life as a media center I think I will have to.
I realize that this is off topic however it would be nice if someone could point me in the right direction.
Thanks, this card seems to need a 400W power supply though, while my PC only has 300W.
Is the PCI bus type relevant. I see cards with version 2.0, 2.1, 3.0 etc. while I do not know the bus type of my PC. It certainly supports PCI Express, just don't know whether or not the version is important...
