I have my computer connected to my HDTV via the DVI/HDMI connector. I used to watch videos, pictures etc using Media Portal in XP, now Team Media Portal say at the moment they are not supporting Windows 7 x64. Can anyone recommend another program I can use? I have tried a couple of other programs but as yet none of them appear to allow me to control the program away from the computer?
I can play Lara Croft, Batman, but i cannot play Portal 2, Fallout 3 nor FEAR3. The games just wouldn't start. I have updated all the video card drivers, but i'm not hitting the solution of this problem.Following is the log from hijackthis:

Portal 2 starts up normally, gets to the loading screen where it says Portal 2, then Crashes/Blue Screens the Computer
i cannot get this game to work...the screen just flashes. anyone else have this problem? it's weird because tf2 works fine and it installed from the same damn disc. thanks. i love this freakin' game and wanna play it again!!
I have VLC Portable as the default program for opening some video files, like .mp4 and .avi. And I have Foobar (portable) as the default program for .mp3.Usually the icons on .mp4, .avi, .mp3 files get updated with the icons of the assigned media players.But on this PC it's not working. They're still the same icons as if WMP was the default player.Does it have to do with the Standard user account? (Because on other PCs I run from an Admin account and I don't have such problems.)
How can I make Windows Media Player stop updating media every freaking time I start it up? It always hogs up massive amount of CPU power and goes into (Not Responding) for a min while updating.I only add media files to the Windows Explorer Library so I can get indexed searches. I don't even use WMP to view files or anything. Just to burn some music CDs sometimes.I've tried deleting the files from the WMP library but the next time I open it up, it scans and updates all my files again! Is there a way to completely purge the WMP library and make it not update ever? I've unchecked every option that seems to make it scan and update but it still does it.Basically I want to UNLINK the Windows Explorer Library from the WMP Library.
I'm in grave problem here. I just installed windows 7 x64 a few days back. And initially I installed the 32bit version of k-lite codec pack for my windows media player. The media center worked fine then. It was loading my ffdshow and ac3filter along as I checked it.But then yesterday I noticed that the same pop-up od recommended/express install of WMP came again. Initially I thought that it must be some bug or something, but then when my MKV and AVI files didn't work in WMC, I realized that somehow WMP x64 got triggered, and now it is using the x64 bit of WMP in WMC. And I just wanna revert back to 32-bit WMP in WMC.
I can't get eithe WMP or MC to play a DVD. I've set the region code. WMP acts like it will play, but then just goes blank, and MC says it cannot play the DVD. These are original discs, not burned copies. I have a custom built system, with 2 graphics cards (GTX 260 and a GT 220) 6 GB of RAM, and an i7 processor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm trying to get some videos and pictures off my backup DVDR disk, but for some reason when I tried to restore them on my computer I always get this message:The media in the drive is not the requested media.Please insert the media with the following label into F:Name-PC 1/5/2011 10:49 AM Drive 1
I wanted to ask if it is possible to set Windows media player to open as the default player inside media center.The reason that I ask this is that I find media center sound is very low quality. I am using it inside windows 7 ultimate X64. I also use Media Browser and have set it to use media player as an external player but it loses some functionality after something is played I have to restart media center and media Browser to play anything again because it will go back to menus but not play anything untill
I'm planning on buying a new PC for media purposes in the next week or so and this is what I've got so far. [code] Anyway what do you guys think, am open to change for better performance however don't really want to spend that much. The only thing that I really want in this PC is a blu-ray drive.
I have a HP Media Drive HD5000s. I can't get windows to recognize this device. When I goto HP all i can do is install the Vista driver and it says that driver is not compatable with Windows 7. Any suggestions?
It won't work in the media bay or dirct usb hookup. Windows states an unrecognizable USB Device.
So Windows 7 beta is out the door and you are ready to begin your beta experience. Over the next few months there will be additional builds for Windows 7 (x86 and x64) as well as Windows Server 2008 R2 and that leads to a lot of installs and a lot of DVD burning and useless DVDs as soon as a new build is out. So why not install from USB or whatever other removable media your computer can boot from? Insert your removable media into a Windows XP or Vista PC and run the following commands from an elevated command prompt.
diskpart list disk (find the disk number for the removable media) select disk # clean create partition primary select partition 1 active format fs=fat32 assign letter=y (or any free drive letter) exit Once that is complete mount the ISO and run the following command. xcopy x:*.* /s/e/f y:
Where “x” is the drive letter of the mounted ISO. Once complete boot off the device and install the OS. When a new Windows 7 or 2008 R2 build is released, simply delete the contents, rerun the xcopy command and you are ready to go again. As a note this also works for Windows Vista and Server 2008 but you already figured that out

The only problem (I think) is that I don't have the installation media. I've searched online to see if I can download it. As I understand it, the license I have should allow me to do a clean install, but as far as I can see, I can only download the iso if I pay for another license.
Im using Windows 7 RC 64 BITS and i have one soundcard "C-Media CMI8738/C3DX Audio Device PCI" in my computer and every time that i click on the XEAR 3D icon to configure my audio, my computer freezy...he just stop working and i have to restart.
I try to download the last driver from C-MEDIA website but it doesn't work.
Is there's something else i can do?
I have one home theater 5.1 in my PC and i cant use the 5.1 CH because of this, i need to configure with this C MEDIA XEAR 3D.
I by mistake unticked the option to hide disks with no media on and now even if the tick is put on all the usb ports and all the dvd reading writing devices are listed and I would like to hide em only if there is no media on them. So please if anyone knows how to fix this tell me. I don't want alternate methods like arraign them in a way that you cant see them in the right panel but they are still there or the method that makes those units inaccessible by the disk and partition manager I want to fix this to have it as it was before not an alternate method.
i am running windows XP as of now and want to switch over to windows 7. is it possible to install windows 7 on a portable hard disk and keep the currently running xp as well so that i could insert the hard disk and change the boot sequence so that if the portable media is present, it runs 7 and when not present then it reads through the computers hard disk to boot the already installed xp.
I want to stream to my files to my PS3. My problem lies in that clicking the 'Turn on media streaming' button does not do anything. I've tried clearing the .wmdb files in the "%userprofile%Local SettingsApplication DataMicrosoftMedia Player" folder, but it appears that WMP is not able to populate any of my files in its "Library" (I don't actually use WMP, I use Winamp).I had it working in the past but don't know what I have changed. Also, I am using HomeGroup as there are other units in the house on Win7.
When I open Windows Media Center - Internet TV is listed.On the windows website it shows that I should have that option.So, I assume I don't have something set up right.I have a TV tuner and I can record and watch TV just can't get to see the Internet TV channels.
I bought a Windows 7 Pro 32bit OEM from Newegg soon as it came out. Recently my motherboard died so I decided to build another computer and dump the old one. Problem I have is the original dvd is bad, the disk will not load. I get the windows 7 spwizeng.dll is not a valid window image. The DVD spins funny in the drive making an odd sound. I tried 3 difference machines, itï¿½s a bad disk.Is there any way around this? Would Microsoft provider a replacement DVD or ISO download for a legit OEM purchase? I have a valid key. I just need media or an ISO to install.
