Garbled Video During DVD Playback In Media Center

May 29, 2008

I've just installed Vista Home Premium SP1 and the DVD playback picture is all garbled in Media Center - lots of mainly green, pink and purple blocks with an occasional flicker of a proper image. The audio is fine and playback with PowerDVD is fine too (dont want to use this as I cant get 5.1ch sound without buying it), I have uninstalled PowerDVD but to no avail.

Vista Home Premium Media Center

May 3, 2008

My new computer came loaded with Vista Home Premium, a Windows version that I find very fast, secure as an Army base or the FBI, and extremely complicated... for me, at least. I am just a writer who needs a PC to just write, edit,file, print, mail, and listen to live music and the news. I can't set up Internet radio stations on this advanced Media Center because the words WINAMP and "live music" do not even show up after I click on RADIO in the MUSIC menu. There seem to be no files for WINAMP or live music anywhere in my computer; however, since WINAMP should be accessible and installable in this Vista version, I think I just do not know how to
locate it.

Windows Media Center - WMC Vista

Aug 19, 2009

I built my father an HTPC running WMC Vista. I set it up here in the U.S. before he moved to St. Martin (a Dutch island in the Caribbean) - and everything was working fine. He was told to select "Netherlands/Antilles" as the location when running the TV Setup wizard, which he did, but then it insists on a zip. Problem... the island has no zip codes. How does WMC know what service he has since it doesn't know where he's at?

Running Home Premium But No Media Center

Mar 23, 2008

I just set up my Xbox 360 for wireless gaming and it works fine. What I am trying to do is set up so I can stream Music, Vid and pics to the Xbox. From what I understand it that Vista Home Premium comes with Windows Media Center and I do have Vista Premium but cannot locate Media Center anywhere on the system. Is there anything I can do to go about getting it since I do not have it and apperantly Vista Premium is supposed to have it already?

Media Center Extender (XBox 360 & Home Premium)

May 21, 2008

I am struggling to connect my XBox 360, as a Media Center Extender, to my HP Pavilion TX1410US laptop (which is running Vista Home Premium). I had a Windows XP Media Center computer hooked up over my existing home network and it worked fine. I deleted that connection through the first computer and disconnected it through the 360 as well. I was able to obtain a new setup key through the 360 and enter it into Media Center on the Vista computer.

On the 360 side, I am able to get an all black screen that says "Windows Media Center contacting..." in the center of my TV (through the 360), but it always ends with a "Connection Terminated" or "Media Center Extender Error." On the Vista side, I am able to go through all of the steps of setting up an Extender, but it always fails to connect at the last step.

I know that the two can see each other, as I am able to stream music from the Vista computer to the 360... I just cannot make the Media Center work! I have spent a lot of time troubleshooting this using online forums and Microsoft instructional pages. I installed Vista SP1 about halfway through and achieved the same results as before.................

Disable Windows Media: Media Center Keeps Popping Up

Feb 14, 2009

Media center keeps popping up, I have not been able to find a way to disable it, so that I can use the program only when I want. It is very tiresome to keep have it. open when ever I pop a cd or dvd in to my drive. I would like some control over which program I use to view/listen to the media I have, and not have one pop up automatically.

Windows Media Center Disappeared

Mar 23, 2008

Recently, my Windows media Center has completely disappeared from my computer. It's not in the start menu, or any of my folders. I can't even find it when I search. The only trace of it I've found was a few .exe files in the system 32 folder. The only way I can get windows media center to work is to open up all those files at once.

Windows Media Center Extender And Xbox 360

Apr 21, 2008

I am using windows vista ultimate and I get a message error on my xbox 360. The Xbox 360 has experienced a failure and was disconnected from the media center based PC. Would you like to reconnect? Vista Ultimate is installed on my laptop for work and I wanted to see how this works but never got it connected. I was able to determine that the cause was the Novell Client for Vista version 1.x, it seems all versions cause this problem. Now I need the client for work and have already filled a bug report with Novell but have not been able to see were to report a bug with MS. I assume it is a Novell issue but I have seen MS KB fixes for novell so wanted to report it to both sides.This never worked with or without sp1 for vista.

Windows Media Center And Image Files

Mar 23, 2008

I've had Vista Home Premium installed on my desktop PC for over a year now, but I never used Windows Media Center until recently and noticed this problem when I purchased a Media Center Extender. After choosing the folders (music, video and image) that I wanted in my WMC library (on BOTH my desktop PC AND Media Center Extender), only my image files do not appear in the libraries. Under "Picture Library" (again, on both units), all folders and sub-folders which I selected are shown but contain no "items". The files which I desire to view are .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, and .bmp formats and I have converted some back and forth between formats to see if that changed anything. Can anyone steer me in the right direction on this?

Does any one know how I can get Windows Media Center back on my laptop without having to use the recovery cd? Is there somewhere where I can download the package again?

Windows Media Center / TV Tuner Not Working

Nov 9, 2008

I have an HP m9000t desktop that is running on vista home premium service pack 1. Ever since I got this PC my TV tuner has not been working properly. I have a ATSC-NTSC TV tuner with PVR, FM tuner installed. So basically this is my issue. I purchased a 4 prong splitter to split my cable input to my pc and cable box. My provider is time warner cable. After setting up my TV Signal in Windows Media Center it seems to be setup correctly until I try to watch live TV. The channels are all messed up. It seems like I only have about 20 channels, some are local channels and some are cable channels but nothing matches correctly.

I also tried connecting my cable out from my cable box directly into my PC. This works better than a direct connection from the splitter but it only shows what I am watching on my cable box, so if i change the channel on my cable box it changes on my pc. And if I change the cannel on my PC everything is scrambled, so it has to be on chan 3. Can this just be an issue with my provider? Do I need a "setup box"? If so how much are they and will it definiely solve my issue?

Configure FM Radio In Windows Media Center

Mar 24, 2010

My HP computer came with XP and an FM tuner. I was able to use media center to listen to over-the-air local FM stations with a "T" shaped antenna connected to the computer's FM connector. I have since upgraded to Vista Home Premium and more recently to Windows 7 Home Premium. I have been unable to configure Windows Media Center with either of these OSs to recognize the FM tuner. The 'Device Drivers' window shows I have the latest version of a "Hauppauge winTV HVR-1800(Model 78xxx, Combo ATSC/QAM)" sound driver. Am I doing something wrong? Or missing something? Is there ANY other program (or driver) that will connect to this tuner?

Windows Media Center Invalid Applicaiton Unable

Sep 1, 2009

Messing around with Vista trying to figure out some of the features available to me, I played a bit with Media Center. A number of activities comes up with an error message: Invalid Application Unable to launch "" In particular, this happens for Internet TV and Online Media Learn How. A few others I don't recall also does this. Any ideas? Doesn't seem to have much in the way of settings or options that I can or should tweak. Perhaps if there was a way to uninstall and reinstall it, but I suspect it is tightly integrated with the OS. I searched the MS support, but came up empty. Since I see that Media Center is taking an even bigger role in Windows 7, I'd like to figure this out.

Freezes And How To Re-enable Missing Hibernate Option In Windows Vista?

Apr 30, 2010

This could start at any time apparently but once it does my whole computer freezes up for 9 seconds exactly, then it's fine for about 50 seconds or so, then frozen for 9 seconds, etc. This will repeat until I reboot the computer. I somehow manged to fix the problem and had completely forgotten about it until the other day.

I wanted to hibernate my computer but the options weren't there so I found this page and entered the commands into the Command Prompt: How to Re-enable Missing Hibernate Option in Windows Vista? - Tweaking with Vishal

It sort of fixed my hibernation, now the Start Menu power button would hibernate, but more importantly the 9 second freezes started up again. I quickly ran the Hibernation File Cleaner in Disk Cleanup which is apparently what removed the hibernation option in the first place, but no luck, hibernation was now gone and the freezes still continued....................

Do Need Media Center?

Jan 21, 2009

I have vista home premium 64 with media center. don't have any desire to hook up the computer to a tV or surround sound system, so is there really any reason to open up and install media center service? I burn cds, do some computer studio recording, sometimes plug a phonograph (remember those?) or a cassette into the computer to record. is there anything in media center that makes those experiences better? when i record off of vinyl i have to set the recording level down to practically zero to record or otherwise the signal is too hot using my usb turntable. it's really almost zero plus a tick or nothing at all. will media center do anything for this?
