New Features

The CATALYST™ software suite now provide a Force TV Detection feature. Force TV Detection

Some TV sets may use non-standard inputs resulting in the TV enable button continuing to stay grayed out in the ATI Displays tab. This issue is address by a Troubleshoot button that is now available. This button allows the user to force detection of their TV. However, features that rely on automatic detection of the TV will not be supported on the TV display. TV detection will also need to be re-enabled each time the system is restarted. Issues Resolved in CATALYST™ Version 3.6
