Still no dice. Same problem. I've used new drivers for the firmware,
I made sure to put the HcwMakoA.rom in the correct folder. I've set
the resolution to encode at the proper rates. What happens is I get
static snow that fades into black every second, and it just repeats
doing that. However, the pvr-250s still work. I've also tried
turning off the machine for +2 minutes and no change. Any ideas?
