 huh  Everytime i attempt to enable OtsAV Video Subsystem Hardware Overlay, I get the following message:: Overlay failed: Hardware error or incompatiibility.  Any ideas why I am getting the message.....I am currently running hoster on this computer for karaoke and want to switch it over to Ots because I have been running Ots for the last 5 years for my dj music only shows  and just love it and want to go strictly Ots for both music and karaoke.........Thanks.......Big Frank J

Hi Frank, and welcome to the forums!

As I see it, the Driver is incompatible, or the overlay is already being used... Possibly by hoster?

What is your video card? Are you using the absolute latest driver?
Older intel video had problems, but as far as I know, the newer drivers are working.

hey frank im going to take a big guess here but here go's.
are you using vista and the graf card intel 965 or 945.
if so this is a known problem and aparently you need to use the xp drivers for the grafix card this did not work for me so i downgraded to xp and works fine with that.
apparently in another forum it is stated that intel missed out overlay in the vista drivers.
hope this helps rolleyes
