Since I got the HTPC in 2008 I have been using AMD Graphics. First onboard HD3200, followed by HD5600 when we went HD and when that went pop a HD7700 which is an excellent card for an HTPC.
All of this time I have always used the latest drivers from AMD, beta when available - until this year.
When the Crimson drivers came out a year ago, I installed them, only to find most of the video settings had gone, the picture quality was poorer and there was no way to get deinterlacing
I found a work around, which was to install the last Beta Catalyst Suite then install the driver only from Device Manager. Unfortunately around May June this year AMD managed to close this loophole and I was forced to go back to Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta which is where I now appear to be stuck.
I was thinking of updating my other PC's Graphics Card (HD4780) but this driver issue is a big problem as recent Cards require the Crimson Driver and Nvidia Cards still seem a bit pricey.
Anybody got any work around for the Crimson Problem? What are you using?
