    Greetinsg! I went up to the site and downloaded the Perception Fileplayer
    version 1.67 (their latest) It still reqires the host computer to have the
    board installed to work. I have the board on a shelf but I REALLY don't want
    to install it in my computer and try to get it configured with Win XP pro.
    It's probably not even poossible! any ideas??........ Stuart

    Surprisingly enough, it is. From a post on the DPSedits forum:
    "I've found WinXP to be very stable with my PVR and it works pretty much the
    same as Win2K from an installation standpoint. You need to install the
    patch prior to running the DPS Tools, Perception Player, etc. and for
    me anyway I had to turn ACPI off during the WinXP installation - the
    PVR just wouldn't work with ACPI turned on. Other than that it works

    The patch being referred to is at

    The file you want is pvr_patch261b.zip for W2K/NT. Just follow the
    Don't worry that it only says W2K as it works with XP as well.

    Greetings! Thanks for taking the time to address this. I guesss the problem
    is that I have a totally tweaked out Matrox X. 100 extreme syhstem now and
    really don;t want to rock the boat trying to intall a card 10 years past
    it's prime. It was hard enough to get the Matrox card working in the first
    place. I was jsut hoping that their was a NON hardware solution. Perhaps
    not! Bummer

    Perhaps finding an older amchine, re-setting it up just for this
    purpose, and salvaging the files?

    I would be interested in your system config and what problems you had
    with the Matrox install. It's one of the cards I have considered
    "upgrading" to.

    The Matrox X. 100 Extreme pro is a GREAT video card BUT like other Matrox
    cards, sometimjes is problematic to install. Go to this link:

    http://forum.matrox.com/cgi-bin/rtx100/ultimatebb.cgi for more infomation.

    Please note that Matrox doesn't tell you that a "clean install" of Win XP
    (the only OS that this card uses) is necessary. Also, take the system
    requirements seriously. The Asus P4c800-E board is "the one" to
    get.........regards........... Stuart
