Use the 3dhq Beta 10's untill the Amiga 3.0's are official. You can find them at http://www.falconfly.de/vsa100.htm look for them near the bottom of the page, in the XP section.

I don't know exactly what you mean by other channels but I use it when I watch movies on my computer. avi. files don't react to the video controls in my video programs. So I have to use the video overlay feature on my 5500 3dfx card . But since I upgraded to xp I can't seem to have that feature no matter what drivers or tools I use. Pleeeeeeaaase Heeeeelp. Thanks Richard

only an idea : if others programs are using the overlay channel, perhaps this option isn't available in the 3dfx tools ;
so i will try to shut down some applications running in the background and reboot everytime in order to see...

an question : no problem before XP ? what OS were you using ? no hardware or software added since ?
the IRQ for the V5 is shared ?

your problen is very rare, i have a voodoo 5 5500 AGP & other PCI, & i never have this problem.

i have "TV tuner" that uses overlay & i Never have any problem with overlay.

the error can be caused but other hardware/software is using this fuction.

try to reinstall windows & the drivers

please try to put a capture the error & Put it on a JPG* in this forum.

the "error" is very simple : in the 3dfx tools, overlay is greyed out so not available
