That sounds like what happens when the desktop resolution changes. Windows doesn't store the icon positions for a resolution so that when it switches back, everything is where it should be. It only happens when a higher resolution goes to a lower one, where the icons no longer fit so they're moved.

Anyway, I've worked around that by using a third-party utility that saves the desktop icon positions. It's found here (http://www.midiox.com/index.htm?http://www.midiox.com/desktoprestore.htm), and I highly recommend it.

ATi need to sort their bloody installer out. Everytime I install new drivers it fucks up the position of all my icons, resizes all my windows and whacks my fan speed up to 100% for a few seconds. Honestly, it's pathetic.

Other than that they're working fine.

I had to have a 25 foot DVI cable b/c unless a monitor is detected as the primary display, the UI for Vista Media Center is virtually unusable (save the jokes please). So strange.
I use Vista Media Center myself, on my media computer. But I have it hooked up to my TV via s-video (I know, yuck), so thankfully the cord was quite cheap. I'm not sure what you were trying to do with your setup (TV as primary?), but it sounds similar to mine. I remember having to fiddle with the TV and a monitor (that I have since disconnected) before I got it working.

my 4850 kicks ridiculous amounts of ass. I play everything at 1920x1200 smooth as hell, it cost me $150, and it works with my Dell's stock power supply.

I bought an HD3650 for my HTPC b/c I heard that ATI gave better video playback performance and quality. It was the first time I did not buy an NV card... I should have bought a 9500GT. Got some weird issues going on that I hope are merely driver issues.
