DESCRIPTION:No sound in Windows Vista.
If you have no audio in Windows Vista, please check the following:
With the Beyond TV ViewScape open, click the volume icon in the Windows system tray (next to the time).
Then click, "Mixer". Here, you should see a separate volume control for Beyond TV.
Please make sure that the volume is adjusted appropriately, and not muted.
If that doesn't work, start a recorded show and then move the volume slider up in Beyond TV until the bar goes RED.
UPDATE: Windows Vista Service Pack 2 is known to cause sound issues with Beyond TV. Please do the following if your audio drops in Beyond TV.
Go to your Control Panel > Sound > Playback tab > Select your audio device > Click the properties button > Go to the Advanced Tab
Uncheck "Allow applications to take exclusive control of this device".
Apply the changes, and reboot your system.
After the reboot, play Live TV or a recording and then press the + sign on your keyboard until the volume reaches 100% in red.
