Default Video playback issues with 4870x2?

Been a while since ive been on the red side of things but I decided to go with a 4870x2 and give it a try. Now the card works awesome while gaming, ive had no issues other then coil squeal but that was solved by buying some tritton AXpros ;) Now though I am having some serious issues with video playback.

Seems that on youtube movies and movies that I cant run in administor privilages (everything other then media player and VLC..) I get alot of tearing, If I run in administrator those problems seem to go away but then I have an issue with the lower 1" of the video window being a few pixels off center of the rest, which makes for a nasty line and an overall displeasing video viewing experience. Ive tried pretty much everything I can think of, even changed up monitors. I tried locking the 3d clocks, turning on vsync for all applications, not sure what else to do since I wouldnt call this an artifact issue and im not overclocking the card atm.

Any help from the red corner? If this continues I may need to switch back to green soon :(

Are you running the FAH GPU client while watching the videos? That gave me issues when I had an X2 Also try disabling Catalyst AI (effectively disables CF) and see if you still get it.

Not running FAH atm, ill try disabling AI that could help, id just have to remember to switch it back whenever I game, kind of a pain. Ill also check directdraw when I get a chance.
