Well, the quality of the video playback using this version is truly superior compared with previous versions.  Even the *marquis scroll* at the bottom of (for example) an ESPN sports report looks REALLY smooth.  I trust the eventual *fix* for the OSD issue will not destroy this performance, which is far and away better than I have ever achieved before...kudos to all involved.
