Been using my htpc for a couple months now and things seem to be going well. Only issue that I am having is sometimes when I try to minimize wmc from full screen the screen goes completely static. I have to turn off the computer and unplug it so that it won't restart in static again. Does anyone know what could be causing this? I have done a search and didn't see anything like this before. Any and all help is appreciated.

Probably HDCP handshaking issues. You could try switching inputs on your TV and/or AVR to knock some sense into it.

Ok so that is what handshake is, that come up a few times in my searches but wasn't really sure that was what was going on. I will try to change inputs and see if that works.

It might be as simple as toggling from one input back to the HTPC's input.

Also, I've solved some handshake issues by minimizing WMC and then restoring it. I just have my remote programmed to send a minimize, delay, restore (start) command.
