Win7 drivers all have both 64-bit and 32-bit versions. It is a mandatory requirement. XP drivers typically don't work on Win7. Vista drivers may work and usually you can find 64-bit driver.

Players from different manufacturing years have different streaming/Netflix apps. My Panasonic BD player, BDT-110, can only get 720p max IIRC. My Sony S590 can only reach non-SuperHD 1080p (3.8mbps...

Again, don't loop software together with drivers. Two different things. Besides, OP has Win7 32-bit, not XP. So if something doesn't work in Vista or Win7, he should already know.

All drivers for Win7 or later need to have both 32-bit and 64-bit. Or else Microsoft will not certify it. So the driver issue is a non-issue. 64-bit OS runs both 32-bit and 64-bit applications just...

Same here. I use Harmony exclusively on all of my TVs. When you have these remotes, it hardly matters you have one box or many different boxes.

There is zero update for Echo after beta ended. What you see before is exactly how it is today. In addition, it is still not compatible with WMC on Win8. Ceton has given up on Echo long time ago.

I think his TV is too old to be able to do that. Instead, it will assume PC levels when it senses PC signal (via the resolutions). It will assume video levels when it senses Video signal.

Yeah, I had a similar Sony receiver before and it is a waste of time to get lossless audio for that. Those low end Sony receivers are just pure crap.

Because you didn't say what are you using your PC for? For HTPC duties, any $20 video card will do as well as your 3GB card (which is totally overkill and wasted for HTPC). But if you need that for...

To fight the non-square pixels, you don't want to do 1:1 mapping. That's not going to work well as outlined by OP. You want to send TV standard HDTV signal and let the TV's built-in scaler to do the...

I don't know if your TV is using signal range to detect PC vs video or simply signal format, e.g. 1080i@60, 720p@60 etc. Or the combination of both. I suspect it might the later.
