I tested RC1 on my 9860 for a day and I wasn't able to get the AverMedia TV Tuner to work. After installing the TV Tuner software from the CD it said that drivers for the TV Tuner still couldn't be found. I checked AverMedia's web site but didn't find the correct drivers. I didn't do a really thorough search, since I was getting tired of Vista by then and was getting ready to go back to XP. One other annoying thing in RC1 was that Windows Media Player 11 reported not enough memory to play a DVD while in Aero. WinDVD would drop out to Vista Basic to play a DVD and Media Center would play the DVD within Aero. This could all have been fixed in the final Vista, though. After reformatting and going back to XP my 9860 felt 2-3 times faster than when I was running Vista.
