BTW, my RS40 has shipped from AVS.
If 10.10 or older are installed, 10.10e should install over without the need to install 12.10.
I only needed to install 12.10 and then 10.10e because I had used driver sweeper when trying to downgrade from 12.10 and something was missing.
At the moment, 10.10e is the best driver for an ATI card if you're using PDVD10.
However, if you're using TMT5, you can now upgrade to 12.10 and TMT build 86, which gives you a much better playback than the initial release, which still had a few quirks.
I also noticed that in order to get my JVC (through the Denon 3311) to switch properly to 24p (FP), I had to switch my Dell monitor off (it's cloned to the JVC).
Finally, PDVD10 was unable to switch automatically to 24P(FP), so I'm obviously using TMT5.
Here is my apparently working config, waiting to fully confirm when I get the emitter today:
AMD Sapphire 6870
ATI Catalyst 12.10 (not the preview with the new catalyst)
JVC X7 on HDMI to Denon 3111 HDMI in (game)
Denon 3311 HDMI1 out to JVC X7 HDMI1 in
TMT5 18.104.22.168 (released on the 01/5/11)
AnyDVD HD (latest) for auto refresh rate and region free playing of my backup rips
Virtual Clonedrive (latest) for automount of BD/DVD ISOs
MyMovies 3.18 for collection management and full WMC integration
With this, I get automount of BD/DVD ISO, auto switch to 24p(FP) when playing a 3DBD, autoswitch to 24p, 50p or 60p when playing a 2D bluray or PAL/SECAM DVD, and bitstreaming of HD Audio.
It also switches back to 60p automatically if I want to play a game (I just have to quit MCE and eject the last disc played/mounted).
