I just installed revue 1.1a3 on an xp professional machine. I transfered a show from my 5040 to my PC via DVArchive and than tried opening the ndx and evt file and both of them play 7 seconds into the video and than revue freezes. Any ideas why this may be if ya need more details let me know. I've tried two different files and both freeze revue up at 7 seconds, and the cpu goes up to 100% and the program quits responding.

How long is the video?

Does it play past the 7 second mark in Windows Media Player?

In reVue, if you click Edit, Show Information, what scene/block information is shown?

the video is an hour long and it plays just fine in VideoLan.

In the edit show information it shows a bunch of different blocks.

You didn't answer the main question: Does the MPG play past the 7 second mark in Windows Media Player? If not, it's a Microsoft problem that I likely can't work around.

If it does play past 7 seconds in WMP, try renaming the .NDX or .EVT file and opening the .MPG in reVue again. (You'll get a warning about not having any scene info, but that's the point so just tell it to continue.) Let me know if it plays then. If it does, the issue with with reVue and the scene information rather than WMP and the video. In that case, I'll want you to send the ndx or evt file.

Yeah it plays fine in WMP too. Was messing around and if I killed one of the svchosts it would work but not sure how to diagnose it from there or what the svchost was actually running. Next time I reboot I'll check and see if it works with just renaming those ndx or evt files

OK, I got the fix (at least for my computer)

I neededto update my driver for my video card. I am using a HP Pavilion zt1135 notebook that uses a S3 Graphics Twister Chip ID: 8D01 Chip name: S3-VIA Twister (TM) (380). I went to
http://www.s3graphics.com/drivers.jsp
which gave direction on how to identify the chip
and then to
http://ranger.s3graphics.com/xplib/380xpdrv/
and downloaded a new driver and the mpeg files worked in reVue and the windows media player.

Hope this helps someone !!!
