Hey guys,
Now that I have everything semi-working, I'm trying to get it stable so I don't have to mess with it all the time. I have my mining rig doubling as an HTPC, not much gaming but a lot of video use.

The problem I'm running into is that poclbm seems to hang a few minutes after a video starts playing in VLC, streaming players, etc.

It just stops mining and doesn't submit any more getworks, and when the video stops playing and the computer goes back to idle it doesn't pick back up. This is a 5830 running 11.2/2.3 SDK. While this is occuring my second card does keep mining however.

My current flags include -f60, maybe I should play around with this...

Thanks in advance for the help!
