Media Center - Add Recording Search Fails - No Results Found

Windows media center seems to be getting the guide updates fine and my regularly scheduled programs are being recorded as they should be. I can use the guide or various other list mechanisms to see future programs but the add recording->search->title & ->keyword (where you actually have to type something in) fail. Type any letter, and it says, "no results found. " You can type an entire title to a show and it will not find it, yet i can find it using the add recording -> guide, and then a lot of scrolling. Search used to work, but now hasn't worked for several weeks (months?). Guide updates still work because my existing scheduled recordings get every new episode.

Media Center No Tuner Error

Windows media center does not see my ati avstream analog cature (tv) card. My system is up to date with respect to drivers. My nero 8. 0. 4. 0 software can see this tv card and play every channel i select. (Nb. : There is no software conflict here). All of a sudden (three days ago) i get a 'no tuner' error from 'windows media center" and i followed the instructions to 'restart tv setup'. - No success; i still have the 'no tuner' error.

Yesterday i re-installed windows 7 - no change; i can't get wmc to grab a tv channel - 'no tuner'. - The tv guide is there but no tuner. Again i have to mention that my tuner does work with nero, so why does it not work with wmc. Both worked well together for many months now(until feb. 19, 2010).

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.

Error - The Ntvdm Cpu Has Encountered An Illegal Instruction

I get an error after every update/maintenance of the game, cabal online. Error msg: 16 bit subsystem error: "the ntvdm cpu has encountered an illegal instruction. Close to terminate the program. " The file that maybe corrupted is either the update.exe of the game or the command.com in windows under system32. This happened before and the only thing that i did to get the game back is to do a system recovery (which im not gonna do again).

I want to know how to prevent the "update.exe" or the command.com from being corrupted every update of the game. I tried contacting the game manufacturer but they don't seem to reply immediately. And their forums are not as helpful as i thought it would be. Please help me!

Support Center Error

I am running windows 7 ultimate n

My help and support center's offline mode was corrupted and it showed errors like this:

_elbasuer_

Topic not found.
The topic you are looking for is not available in this version of windows. For additional assistance, see more support options.

Then i took help from a forum, andd deleted a string from here (which was in regedit):

Hkey_local_machinesoftwaremicrosoftassistancec lient1. 0namespacesoemen-usitles

I then deleted bcrm_bluetooth_help" string value (reg_sz).

Then i reopened help and support center, and it was 100% fine.

Now, i am in need of great help because i think that the deletion of that string can cause problems, or my data could be unsecured.

Do you think that deletion of the string wouldn't cause something bad? Do you think i did right by deleting that string?

Media Center

What do i need to do to get media center to remember where i stop or pause a dvd when i'm unable to watch the entire movie in one sitting? I can pause the movie, and either shut down or "sleep" the computer, but when i restart the computer and start media center to watch the dvd where i left off, the dvd starts from the beginning. Is there something i can do in the "setup" screens to force media center to resume the dvd where i left off at?

Help With Media Center

I am currently running windows 7 and have windows media center where i watch and enjoy tv shows. Unfortunately, my cable company, comcast, has required that customer will have to use a digital adapter in order to continue watching. With the adapter, i have to keep windows media center on channel 3 and control the channel with the remote that came with the adapter.
 
Due to this change, it is more difficult to record tv shows in windows media center. I really enjoy the way this version of windows media center records and files the shows. But, with this digital adapter i cannot.
 
I have a hp compute with an external hp tv tuner. The comcast digital adapter does have an "ir in" hole where i can connect an ir something into it. My ir receiver that i got with the computer has 2 holes in the back. Not sure what to do. I would like to configure the system where i can use windows media center like i did before the comcast digital adapter came into my life.

Media Center And Two Monitors

Current setup: using two monitors on my laptop (built-in and external display). Running windows 7 professional 64-bit

Problem: i watch movies/netflix/media center on my external display. When watching movies, my laptop screen just displays whatever was left on it for the entire time.

Solution? Without having to close my laptop, is there a way to make the un-used screen turn off while watching a movie? Either some sort of plugin/application, or maybe a setting in windows or media center? I've just been letting it stay on for now, but i don't want my laptop screen to get burned in.

Windows Media Center

I have windows 7 and enjoy watching tv programs from my pc with the use of windows media center. However, our local cable tv company (comcast) has it now where all customers are required to have a digital box in order to watch many of the channels they provide. After hooking up the digital cable box, i set my media center to channel 3 and all is well. I can watch what ever.

However, if i schedule to record a tv program, the media center will change the channel to the channel that i am recorded. Hence, changing the channel from 3 to whatever the show i am recorded. Sadly, if media center is not on channel 3, then i can not watch anything nor record anything.

Is there a way around this where i can still record by using windows media center along with the digital box that is required.

Media Center Issues

I have a clean install of 64-bit win 7 home premium. After i imported about 20 albums from my music file, it slowed to a crawl and was virtually unusable. I was instructed to turn the media center program off and then back on. While it helped somewhat, i cannot play any music without a 1 to 2 minute wait and i no longer have the media center sounds when it's loading or moving between screens. If i try some of the pre-installed media, the sound is fine.

Sound is fine outside media center. I can also move around in the other sections, just not the music. I would like to manage my music and video libraries within media center, but i hesitate to bring in any videos after the issues with the music. All my music is legal, just in case that might be an issue. I'd also like my media center sounds back - i assume i'm missing the codecs.

Any suggestions aside from reinstalling win 7?

I built the computer with:
64-bit win 7 home premium
Core 2 duo wolfdate 8400 @3. 0 ghtz
4 gb ram
Nvidia geforce gtx 260
Creative sb xfi extreme gamer
500 gb wd hard drive

Media Center Freeze

Windows 7 media center freezes my computer when i am skipping ahead through hd tv - five or six skips and my computer freezes. (Reproducible problem. ) It sometimes freezes when i am watching an hd program while it is taping and i skip (say the football game starts at 1 and i start watching at 2 and skip commercials). It sometimes freezes when i flip channels when watching tv. Sometimes it issues a constant "screech" when frozen, sometimes it is silent.

This is a recent windows 7 upgrade. I had an infrequent sound issue in vista 64 when i installed sound blaster, but not the consistent freezing. I suspected the sound card as i added it recently, but now i suspect some kind of  memory issue - that the skips or channel changes are exhausting the ram - but that doesn't seem to make sense given the 6 gb. I do notice it takes more skips to crash if i close memory consuming applications like the memeo sync program i use with my external hard disk.

I have updated drivers and i have defragged my internal hard disk where tv programs are stored. External hd is for backup only. Any suggestions for narrowing down the cause?

Dell studio xps 435mt - i7-920 processor 2. 66 ghz. 6 gb. Titantium pro sound blaster. Two monitors -second monitor is 720p tv through hdmi connection and optical sound out.

Media Center Extenders

I have a desktop pc serving as a media server running windows 7 with windows media center. I've used an xbox360 as an extender, and the whole setup is pretty much perfect; the media center menu shows up on my xbox exactly as it's configured on the desktop machine, even including a plugin i've installed for media center.

Here's my question: is there a similar solution to allow other windows 7 machines to act as an extender of sorts as well?  Currently if i want the same experience i would have to start windows media center on the client computer, manually point all the libraries to their locations on the server, and install and configure any additional plugins to get a media center that looks and behaves similarly to the one on the server.

So, is there anything like this possible at the moment, or are there any plans for extender-like functionality for windows 7 machines in the future?

Media Center Crashing

I have a copy of windows 7 professional 64bit installed on my desktop computer here at school. I have been using windows media center to record cable television with my happauge pci-express tv tuner. It worked great for the first month, but then media center began to crash every time i try to scroll to the left or the right through my recorded tv. It has no problems in any of the other menus, but i can't scroll more than a few entries to the left or right in recorded tv before it says "windows media center has stopped working" and then crashes. Help?

Media Center Tv Problem

I accidentally published this in the xp forums so i opened it here. Hey, i have avermedia hybrid hx tv card and i'm using windows 7, i would like to use it in the windows 7 media center. I configured the live tv but i had several problems:

1. The built in ir receiver( it's a usb card with receiver on it) isn't accepted. It says i have to connect ir hardware although i have one. It comes with a remote control when you buy the card. At first i thought i didn't have ir so i installed some driver to skip this step and now i want to remove it and configure my ir.

2. When i press on the live tv it buffers( with the buffering circle) for about 10 seconds and when i try to change the channel in my set top box it takes around 10-15 seconds until it changes on the screen.

The quality is lower then the program that comes with the card and all these problems don't appear there but i like media center more. Another thing that i would like to know, when i configured the settings it asked my to change the channel by pressing the channel number on the remote( of the media center and not the set top box) or the keypad and i don't get how is it possible that you can change the channel on the set top box from the computer( or maybe this feature is for analog only?)

How To Find Media Center?

I am asking this on behalf of my friend who came to me for help because he is hardly computer literate. Home premium win 7. About 4 months old. He said at one time he was playing around with windows media center, thinking that it was media player. Today he realizes that he cannot find wmc any more. I told him about vista method of locating ehshell.exe.

Start > search box, enter ehome > enter > scroll the list for it.

It did not work for him. Entering ehome in search box did not bring up c:windowsehomewindow. Can someone please tell me how to call up wmc?

Search In Media Center

Have upgraded to windows 7 home premium from windows vista home premium. Have a lot of music on my computer and get a problem with search. I have organized my albums by artists and album-artists. i.e. All elvis presley's albums have his name both in artist and album artist and if some one else is participating, they are in artist (and elvis is albumartist). I have a lot of collection albums, as "best of 90's" and "best of bikers" etc.

All these have albumartist like "various artists" and artist like performing artist. In my computer they are shown as described and if i play the album from media center the artist name is shown right. But when i use "search" in media center for one of these artists; i get the name, but when i click on the name i get the answer "no songs available for this artist". If i search for the song, i get it displayed. What do i have to do?

Use Different Media Center Remote

My hauppauge wintv-hvr-1600 comes with a media center remote and a "media center remote control receiver/blaster box". I don't like the remote - the buttons are too small. I would like to change remotes. Is that doable? Is the "media center remote control receiver/blaster box" a standard mc component? Can i get a universal remote that will work with it?

I know i should ask hauppage, but i am interested to know how interchangeable these mc components are from the different manufacturers.

Internet Tv In Media Center

I have a toshiba satellite a505-6992 laptop with windows 7 64 bit. The internet tv application in media center worked a few times, but once mcafee was installed (not sure if that is the problem or not) when i click on internet tv in media center i get the following: internet tv is currently unavailable, an error occurred while loading the application. I"ve tried the recommendations that i've seen online, tried uninstalling mcafee, and nothing. Under add/remove programs, i don't even see anything for internet tv. Any thoughts?
