I set up the Anthem ARC for my new Anthem Statement D2V yesterday. The latest firmware for the D2V and the ARC software were installed. I used a serial to USB adaptor from Belkin that Piero at Anthem recommended. I could not get ARC to recognize the D2V using my current laptop (Dell Windows 7 Untimate OS). I had to pull out an old IBM ThinkPad with Windows xp installed and ARC worked perfectly. Why is it that ARC in 2013 cannot be used with Windows 7 (and what about Windows 8?) Windows xp is two OS behind. Is ARC usable with Windows 7? If so, what do I need to do to have it work? I won't have the old Think Pad around forever. Thanks.

Maybe post your concerns in the D2 thread?

Glad I could help.

I have an Anthem mrx receiver and I can tell you that the ARC software loaded onto my Win7 and Win8 machine with issue.

was this a typo - do you mean with issue, or without issue ?

Sorry, it was a typing error on my part. ARC software loaded and ran perfectly on my Win7 x64 and Win8 x64 system.
