The integrated graphics card is my first and major suspect.
Yes, I should think so too, but like I said, it worked fine in Vista. Perhaps it's a driver issue and I just need to wait until Intel come up with better drivers. I could go back to Vista until then I suppose.
Yes, unfortunately driver issues are likely to around for a bit, until everyone "catches up."
As a test, you might want to "borrow" a current vid-card from another machine, and one with maybe Win7 RC drivers, just to test. I do recall a lot of problems with recent ATI cards with Win7 RC, so maybe seeking out one of those would help you define the exact cause of your problems.
I have the same problem, but I am running with Vista. Let me know if you make any progress here
just shot a bunch of HD footage and can't edit ! sadness
Your post is highly inaccurate and unanswereable due to lacking details. You post under a topic header that clearly states DV Source, yet in your post you mention HD. So what is it? You also forget to mention anything relevant. You should look at this link and the included links and answer all 16 questions in the Wiki link, if troubleshooting did not help: Some suggestions
I'v not had any issues under Windows 7 RC 32 bit or 64 bit using an ATI 4350.
I agree with Smelly, Windows 7 is a great operating system. I often take the "wrecking ball" approach to PC problem solving. For 70+ dollars you could buy an ATI 4800 series graphics card and most likely solve the issue. I have an old Asus P4C800-E-Deluxe motherboard based computer at home I use for testing. At one time I tried to install Vista, but couldn't get the Promise Raid and SATA drivers to work. I then installed the Windows 7 Release candidate and the Win XP version Promise drivers worked like a champ. Over the weekend, I was fighting with the latest ATI X800 Catalyst+Drivers because the monitor was not displaying correct resolutions. For whatever reason, a Driver/Catalyst uninstall/reinstall, fixed the issue. It's almost as if Windows 7 is smart enough to install something differently if it doesn't work right on the first try. I think I paid a little over $70 for my 4830 ATI card I use in my other home computer based on the i7 920 processor. This computer is virtually trouble free even with the Win 7 Release Candidate.

Not almost, it is smart enough. I tried installing an old version of Roxio, and Windows 7 blocked the driver because it wasn't compatible. So instead of the headache of malfunctioning hardware/software, I got a very clear message and could then find another solution.
My apoligies... Thanks for the troubleshooting link, I'm working through that,
I am experiencing the blank playback monitor with any type of video file I have tried editing (AVI, WMV, AVCHD, .mts, none of them work), sound is there but no video
It doesn't appear the codecs are the problem because the files work in media player, perhaps my graphics card??
This is what I'm working with:
processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8600 @ 2.40GHz (2 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
Graphics card: Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family (7.15.0010.1576)
I can't explain it, maybe a gut feeling, but why do I always feel uncomfortable when I read Intel graphics?
Turn "video acceleration" to none in Windows Media Player options>tab Performance. This is not a permanent solution, but it can fix it till microsoft turn available a patch to solve the real problem. The permanent solution to solve this can be archived with a complete check to all system, including drivers, patches etc. Besides being not launched yet, Vista 7 is a promisse of a very good OS. Since i´ve ran all CS4 softwares in its Beta to test it, it shows a very good use of computer resources, but when you find a problem, it simple lack drivers, patches or support. Your major problem is your video hardware, since its not even recommended to run old PC games, try to imagine edit video with it.
Sorry for any mistyping, english is not my 1st language.
