    hmm... what kind of monitor and connection are you using? VGA? HDMI? DVI? displayport?

    it's a 4850 trough DVI to an LG w2353v tipycal monitor
    no idea what could be the problem, maybe i'll just wait for the catalyst update to see if that helps

    the problem is the ati 4800 series has been retired to the legacy video cards and there is going to be no further driver update from AMD. the legacy 12.6 (which I don't use because of DRM/HDCP problems) is the final driver.

    Metro/Windows Store apps enforce DRM/HDCP strongly. If there's any unprotection along the path, it won't play. Are you using a DVI-I cable or a DVI-D cable? Since the DVI-I has both DVI and VGA (the 4 pins are for VGA), that's an unprotected pathway because VGA is not a secure connection (too easy to copy its contents). The way to close this problem is to switch to a DVI-D cable. However, with a DVI-D cable, since it's no longer VGA, there's no DVI-to-VGA adapter available because these adapters depended on DVI-I.

    they are going to have some updates, just not as frequently and mainly bug/security fixes, check it out 13.1 just popped today AMD Catalyst


    thanks for the connector head's up, didn't think about that, and it's good to know. I'm on DVI-D single link now, but i have an spare HDMI lying around so i should be able to test that too. I'll report back in a while with all this new things to try.

    edit: new driver is 8.970.100.7000

    edit2: seems like i'm back at the 97% stuck bug

    13.1 doesn't apply to the legacy devices...

    I can't get 13.1 for my HD4670. your 4850 has been retired by AMD. it's something you're going to have to come to terms with.

    yeah, my next upgrade is a new graphics card that will keep getting driver updates with windows 8 in mind. having a legacy card will only have more problems as time moves along.

    Hello Guys, I new here, and I need a help, I've tried all that I found online to make my netflix app work, I'm using windows 8.1 I have a ATI 6770 and I use two monitors, a DVI-D Acer monitor and my tv in HDMI, and when I try to open the app all that I have is the initial screen that keeps loading forever, does anyone knows how to fix it?

    I've already removed my drivers and used only the windows default driver, I've removed my tv to try only at the monitor, all this kind of stuff, could somebody please help me? thanks

    I was having the same problem as you, the only solution i found was swapping my HDMI connection from the VGA to the motherboard, now it works perfectly. The problem is that if you meant to play a game youŽll need to swap it back.

    What you mean by swapping in VGA mobo? like removing the cable in the graphic card adapter? or what? could you please explain a little more?

    thanks dude
