    The main fixes I spotted for medic pc users are:-

    Playing back h.264 interlaced BluRay content no longer displays intermittent green flashing.
    The system no longer experiences random hangs when playing back BluRay 3D content in Duplicate mode.
    Playback of BluRay 3D content now correctly uses hardware acceleration.

    Using them on vista with cyberlink pdvd11 codec pq is even better - even sd looks like hd! (on 50" lg plasma). I think the adaptive deinterlacing is better than before.

    One word of warning - if you are installing the southbridge drivers at the same time, the SATA AHCI drivers are now installed by default. If like me you have the Raid AHCI driver installed (They were the only ones that worked 4 years ago) it will totally cripple the pc took me 45 mins to get into devise manager and revert back. Raid AHCI driver is still a separate download.
    It's not an overly complicated system - it's more - overly simple operatives

    Anybody know if they fixed the issue with many of the (important) video settings greyed out with the AMD 6450 cards? Still currently on 11.9 as that was the last version that allowed all options to be enabled (most importantly adaptive deinterlacing). The 6450 has plenty of power to handle these options so don't know why they got disabled. Thanks

    try unchecking 'enforce smooth video playback'
    it disables features it thinks your card can't handle..[and it's mostly correct, 6450 can't handle many enhancements]

    Yes, aware of that thanks. With 11.9 it handled adaptive interlacing fine with the "enforce smooth..." option enabled easily (~50% GPUusage) but post 11.9 versions just don't allow it. I guess AMD just decided to disable it.
