Cannot Capture Full Screen MC Content
Print Screen key works when Media Center is not running in Full Screen mode.
However, when Media Center is using the full display, a Print Screen results
in a black image to the clipboard. It seems as if a full-screen display of
the Media Center cannot be captured at all. Does anyone know if this is by
design or are there any configuration settings in Vista to make this work?
This was not a problem in MCE XP.
Any feddback is appreciated.

Re: Cannot Capture Full Screen MC Content
This is "by design". It's DRM related.. I personally see it as
overkill, but... To take a screen shot, put MCE in a window and
stretch it to the limits and then do the print screen. Best I can
offer.

Re: Cannot Capture Full Screen MC Content

Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration in the Video Settings?
If you select Video Properties --> Settings --> Advanced.
There should be "hardware acceleration" somewhere here.
Disable it moving the slider to "no hardware accelaration".
The screen capture should work now. Good luck!
