    Definitely not updating to this version. FFmpeg functionality is vital for me.

    The last few versions are causing my displays to not go into sleep mode at they should, 100% of the time. They do sometimes....but, no rhyme or reason I can come up with as to why they do sometimes and other times not. I've been at work all day, today, and came home with all of them on.

    But, I have filed a report on this issue with AMD.
