Question about Creative Labs Dxr2 Decoder Graphic Card
HAVE ORIGINAL CD FOR W9X AND TRIED COMPATIBILITY MODE IN XP BUT THAT DIDN'T WORK.
FOUND POSTING ON "COMPUTING.NET" SITE THAT
INSTRUCTS TO GO TO DEVICE MANAGER SELECT MULTIMEDIA VIDEO CONTROLLER AND UPDATE THE DRIVER FROM THE WDM DIRECTORY OF THE EXPANDED "DVDEWUP.EXE (THE DXR2 W98 DRIVER FROM CREATIVE'S SITE). THIS INSTALLED THE"CREATIVE PC-DVD ENCORE WDM DEVICE UNDER SOUND AND VIDEO CONTROLLERS.
MY PROBLEM IS THAT ONCE INSTALLED I CAN'T SELECT THE DXR2 AS MY PRIMARY OR SECONDARY VIDEO OUTPUT IN DISPLAY PROPERTIES (IN FACT IT IS NOT EVEN SHOWN AS AN OPTION) AND THUS NO DUAL DISPLAY WITH CRT AND TV (S-VIDEO) OUT.
TO RESTATE: THE CARD IS RECOGNIZED AS A VIDEO CONTROLLER, BUT NOT AS A DISPLAY ADAPTER (WHICH WOULD ALLOW DUAL DISPLAY)
This might be a limitation of an older driver and lack of support to do multiple monitor display.
i once overcame this by using ati catalyst control center on a non ati card system
