I have a AMD Radeon HD 3200 based motherboard which I have used as a media center for the last 3-4 years.

I am using the on board graphics (driver version 8.970.100.0) and windows 8 x64 but also want to run a couple of linux VMs under hyperv.

Individually both hyper-v and media center work.

When I try to run media center with hyper-v enabled then I get no video but I can hear audio. If I disable hyper-v and reboot I can see media center fine.


bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

Given that I have some of the latest video drivers is there anything else I can do to get both hyper-v and media center working concurrently?

Upgrading to a later version of media portal and to windows 8.1 fixed the problem.
