when you access the drac/mc website do you see what type of KVM you have? analogue or digital?

do you see on the left hand side the menu for accessing the console/media?

just another thought, i have trouble running the console/media plugin on any modern version of i.e and java. I only seemed to get this to work by running a vm of xp with standard IE 6 and using java version j2re-1_4_2_05-windows-i586-p

I was then able to load the console/media screens
