Depending on your OS theme (such as non-Aero themes and Windows XP themes), a display surface can be erased for a while if the Emulator window is obscured by another window. If you click the Emulator window, the display surface works correctly again.
If the host machine is using the Nvidia Optimus™ technology, the TV Emulator works with the on-board graphics chipset, and not with the Nvidia® external graphics card. To prevent this, you can ether disable the Nvidia Optimus™ technology, or set the TV Emulator to run with the Nvidia® external graphics card.
