Windows Media Center Watch Live Tv Video Issues

When i run the test under windows media center for tv signal strength through my tv tuner, i see that all the channels have the maximum number of green bars (i.e. Very strong signal strength). But when i try to watch tv on some channels two seconds later i get very choppy video which is impossible to watch. Why would the test show a strong signal but the video not resolve. I have a 2. 2 ghz core2 duo, and a 512 mb nvidia video card, so i don't think it's a hardware limitation. Also, this wouldn't explain why i only have a problem sometimes. The problem doesn't seem to happen specifically with high definition - sometimes hd shows work fine, sometimes not. Any help would be much appreciated this is very confusing.

File Error Copying Vob Files To Drive

I have been trying to copy a few . Vob files from a non-copyrighted dvd to my hard drive and keep running in to the same problem. After the transfer is complete, it looks like the full file is there but it shows that the clip length is only :13 seconds rather than the 35mins of the original file. Sure enough when i try to watch it, the clip appears corrupted, jumping around before ultimately freezing. Is this an error in the transfer, of the original dvd or something in 7 i just don't know about. I've only been using 7 for a few months and this is the first time i've tried to transfer vob files on this particular laptop.

Cannot Add Picture Files To Library In Wmp 12 And Media Center

Cannot add picture files to library in windows media player 12 and media center i am not able to see any of my pictures in windows media player or media center. I have tried removing folders from the library and then adding them again. They then show up, but disappear when i close the program and open it again, even though the folders show up in the library. The files show up fine in other applications. I have also noticed that the library retains some old filenames when i try to delete them but cannot open them. Any suggestions?

Media Player Only Plays Sound, Not Images

My media player no longer shows the videos that it used to. I can hear the sound but, no image. This is with all types of videos. (. Wmv, . Avi, . Mpg, . Mp4, ect. ) I have read the similar questions and tried the solutions to no avail. I've tried sfc /scannow and the results were clean. When i try to open a video from the videos folder, it opens the media player and plays the sound only. The screen shows the visualizations, not the video. I have scanned for malware and come up clean. Also, i have turned media player on and off multiple times. Nothing seems to work. I am at my wits end on this please help

Cannot Stream Video Or Audio

I cannot stream any audio or video. Websites load but as soon as i try to play the video, the browser freezes and i have to force it to exit the program. This is happening in both internet explorer and firefox. So far i have tried:

Uninstalling and reinstalling flash
Uninstalling and reinstalling java
Uninstalling and reinstalling quicktime
Uninstalling real player
Looking for updates for all of these programs (flash, java, quicktime)
Running firefox in safe mode to see if the problem went away
Updating all these programs

None of these attempts helped. I am using windows 7, on a new dell studio laptop. This is a recent problem that has been on-and-off for the last few weeks, but today everything stopped working.

No Audio With Imported Video File

Have a hitachi digital vid camera with pixela imagemixer 3 software that came with the camera. The software imports video form the camera and converts it into . Mpg format. Was able to import the mpg files into movie maker 2. 1 without a hitch.

Movie maker 2. 6 has been frustratingly problematic. It will not play the audio for teh files. The files play brilliantly in windows media player without any problems at all. Have downloaded all the codecs i could find. All compatibility options are selected.

Cannot Play Audio From Online Streaming Video Through Headset

On my new windows 7 home premium system, i can not play audio from online streaming video (hulu) through my headset jack.

After looking around to troubleshoot, have checked here: on my taskbar beside the time, i click the speaker icon and can see the incoming signal for my hulu is coming in. On the control panel/sound i have tested the left and right sound output and it tests ok. So, why is the sound not getting to the headphone speakers? How can i make this work? Have tried both ie and firefox current releases and neither works. Was trying to watch the superbowl ads on www.Hulu.com/adzone. Video works, but have no audio getting through.

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?

Media Center Will Not Shut Off

I am running windows 7 and this is a new problem. It did not occur when i installed windows 7. When i login to my laptop the media center comes up, i can not close it. When i hit the 'x' in the upper right corner, it expands but does not close. Then when i try to run any program, it brings up the media center - not the program. I can't access any of my installed programs - only media center. I'm at a loss. When i installed windows7 everything was running perfectly for several weeks and the only thing i have done is to run the automatic updates.

Where Is Media Center In Win 7 ?

So i've just recently installed windows 7 ultimate (and before anyone asks, not the "n" version; i did find windows media player), and for the life of me i cannot find media center. If there was a link on the start menu to it, like i remember from vista, i "may" have deleted it while cleaning up my start menu shortly after the install. In any case, how else would i go about launching the application?

Media Center Causes Blank Monitor

I am using windows 7 as an htpc hooked up to a 42 inch plasma tv. I have media center set to open on start-up at which point everything works great. I will occasionally close or minimize media center in order to check email on the machine. When i try to go back into media center my screen goes completely blank about 70% of the time. Minimizing vs a full close/open of media center doesn't seem to matter. Ctrl-alt-del or alt-tab don't work either. My only solution is to do a hard reset. Is there anyone else out there with this same issue?
