Metro Tiles Do Nothing - Media Center 8 Goes Unresponsive On Setup

Oct 29, 2012

Ever since I got Windows 8 Pro 64 bit, it's turned my computer into Ricky Retardo.

When I click on the Metro tiles for People, Photos, Video, Games, whatever ... it grows to fill the whole screen, and then immediately closes again like nothing was supposed to happen. I figured I needed to restart my computer. That didn't fix it.

Then I installed the Windows Media Center 8 with the promo code and everything. When you first start it, it tries to setup, and asks you whether or not you want Express or Custom installation. Picking either or on both options causes the entire program to go unresponsive and crash.

Lost Track Of Start Page And Charm Bar?

Apr 5, 2013

I just got a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and I've lost track of the Start page (I guess they call it Metro), the one with Start up on the left and all the tiles, including the one for Desktop...gone.

Also I don't get the Charm Bar with a swipe, or any other movement for that matter. It opens up to a page with 4 tiles: Weather, Media Hub, Music Hub and Game Hub. I can tap to a page with Apps, a bunch of apps, but no Start Page or Charm Bar.

Disabled Windows 8 Password / Lost Desktop Tiles And Documents?

Apr 16, 2014

I recently turn off the login password on Windows 8.1, HP laptop. The next time she went to turn it on, all the normal tiles from the Start Screen were gone with the exception of five tiles: IE, File Explorer, Store, SkyDrive and Desktop.

The File Explorer icon opens a folder showing the various libraries and devices/drivers. When she clicks on the Documents folder it doesn't show any of her files. I did eventually find them by going to her name in the Users folder, but we cannot understand why simply taking away the requirement for a login password would change everything. All her browser favorites were also wiped out, and she had to reinstall Chrome.

Lost Permissions / Tiles Are Missing And Can't Reset

Mar 24, 2014

Since receiving my laptop back from it being repaired (Fan wasn't spinning then the laptop wouldn't turn on after trying to fix it myself) it turns on and the fan spins just fine although I am having numerous software problems.

First, I can't open my photos, music or documents folder (videos seems to be fine) and they don't have their original icons anymore, when I try to open the folders using the file explorer nothing happens, when I tried to open folder using the tiles, the folder would load then close without warning or reason and when I tried opening files by right clicking > open with, it would open then a banner will show saying. 'You don't have permission to access this' (Or something similar).

I am able to access my photos and such by going to: Computer > Local Disk (C: ) > Users > [My name], in there I can find it all but it's not where it should be.

After this I decided to restore my pc to an earlier point, but since then my tiles have vanished (Photos, music, Skype, videos, people and so on) although the Store tile seems to have stayed and is working fine.

While trying to reinstall the tiles from the store, the store says I already have the tiles but I can't find them anywhere.

I eventually decided to reset my system and reinstall windows (I would be reverted to Windows 8 not 8.1) although while attempting a reset, a banner shows up saying. 'There was a problem while resetting your PC'. When clicking 'Check for solutions to this problem' it would minimise the window to the desktop and then nothing would happen.

I want my old PC back, before it needed repairing!

Winsat Won't Run In Windows 8.1 Pro With Media Center

Jan 31, 2014

When I run winsat formal -reset -v from an elevated powershell or cmd window, it completes in less than a second and produces no xml files. I have tried without success:

1. Clean boot
2. Safe boot
3. Updated video driver
4. Uninstalled all codecs with autoruns

I think the problem might be related to failure to run the NT Kernel Logger but I don't know what process could be tying it up. I have attached the winsat log.

Get Windows Media Center To Stay On Top?

Jan 24, 2013

I have been trying to get WMC to stay-on-top but to date I have not been able to figure it out. I have looked all over the application. The research I have done tell me to do the follow within WMC;

Select: Tasks / Settings / General / Startup and Window Behavior

At this location I should see the option to "Stay on Top" but the only options available are;

1) Show a warning before displaying Web pages that are not designed for WMC
2) Show taskbar notifications

When I select about in WMC the following info is displayed;

Windows 8
with Windows Media Center Technologies

Where I need to go to set this option ?

Windows Media Center Not Playing Any DVDs?

Sep 9, 2013

Every time I try to play any DVD in Windows Media Center, I get this error:

"CANNOT PLAY DVD : The DVD may be in use by another application. If all other applications are closed, the video resolution may need to be lowered or the display connection type may not support playback of the DVD."

I know the issue is not with my physical DVD drive because of the following reasons: I am presently dual-booting XP Pro SP3 and Windows 8 Pro with Media Center. The former can play DVDs just fine. VLC Player on Windows 8 can also play DVDs just fine.

I'm curious if there's any way to get this to work on Windows Media Center on Windows 8, then, because I paid for the upgrade from Pro to Pro with Media Center, after all.

Windows Media Center / Not Recognizing TV Tuner

Mar 31, 2013

My WMC has been working just fine since it was released for Windows 8. I opened the programme today to check tv programmes only to find that "Viewing or Listening Conflict - No tuner available to satisfy the current request".

I have a TV Tuner card : AVerMedia H751 Hybrid Analog/DVB-T with the latest and only drivers installed. by visiting AVer Media website.

When I did a compatibility test for Windows 8 there was no conflict, hence I've been viewing TV with WMC until today.

What happened today, nothing that I know of. Windows update yesterday, so I did a system restore, no such luck it made no difference.

My system is Wndows 8 Pro with Media Centre
Intel Core i5 CPU
64 bit OS

My husband's computer is on the same line for TV and his WMC is working just fine so it's not the connections from the wall unit to PC.

Windows 8 Media Center - TV Tuner Not Detected?

Dec 3, 2012

At the moment I dual boot Windows 7 and Windows 8. I have just added Media Centre to 8 (yes I've got my key = 10days) and all went smoothly . . . until the dreaded alert 'TV Tuner not Detected' !! Of course it works perfectly on the Win7 partition, but is there any way for it to be recognized in the Windows 8 Partition? Or is the only way to eventually lose my Windows 7 and rely totally on Windows 8. Presumably the TV Tuner Card would then be detected. TV Tuner card is AVerMedia A336 MiniCard Hybrid DVB-T and driver up to date.

Can't Reinstall Windows 8 Pro With Media Center On Dell

May 20, 2014

I'm trying to reinstall win8 Pro w/ Media Center on an older Dell C2D system for a friend. She has no discs as she got it from her brother for x-mas a little while back and she's unable to get them as he lives out of state.

I used a program to extract the keys, but it seems that the media center add-on has overridden the pro key and it wont let me install windows. I noticed it gave me an internet explorer key that was different from the win8 key, but it rejected that too.

Is there a way to extract the original win8 pro key? I couldn't seem to find anything with google.

Hardware Drivers :: Windows Media Center Remote?

Feb 23, 2014

I have a eHome IR Transceiver/Receiver and a Media Center Remote ,from a previous PC.

This receiver connects to a USB port and it is recognized in the Device Manager with the drivers, it says the device is working correctly there.

It's listed under Human Interface Devices as Microsoft eHome infrared transceiver, also in System Devices - as Consumer IR Devices.

I have a Hauppauge WinTV Tuner card.

Remote is not being detected by Windows Media Center or in WinTV app.

WinTv has an app IR Remote which is being started, also a config tool which does detect the remote.

I have Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit with Media Center.

How to make this possibly work for Media Center, since nothing shows in settings of Media Center or WinTV.

Could be possible it is an older model transceiver,may not work, but it is being detected by Windows.

Windows Media Center - Libraries Stopped Working

Nov 1, 2012

I'm not sure if it's related to the fact that I just installed Windows Media Center but whenever I try to open a Library folder like Video or Music I get this error.

If I manually go to C:Users[username]Videos it opens the folder just fine.

Windows Media Center Doesn't Show Subtitles

Feb 12, 2013

I'm mainly using WMC when I'm watching something. I have installed a few codec packs so most of the time it works fine.

I've got an episode of Naruto that suddenly didn't show the subtitles, though. (I've watch about 300 episodes of Naruto before this one and they all showed subtitles properly.)
At first I thought there was something wrong with the episode, so I opened it in Windows Media Player Classic (using CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack- which is the greatest thing since VLC) and it worked fine, showing subtitles with no problem. (However, the subtitles looked different, so I'm guessing there's another translator or something involved.)

So why doesn't WMC show subtitles when MPC does?

It's an .avi -file, and the subtitle is "built-in", so there's no extra file or anything.

EDIT: I tried with another Naruto Episode, which is in .mp4 format, and the subtitle works in both WMC and MPC. I still want my WMC to be able to play all files and subtitles, though.

I used Add Features to add free Windows Media Center. After reboot there is no indication of it anywhere. Nothing in Start menu or control panel.

I use Ex7ForW8 to get a Win 7 style desktop and start menu. Is this a Metro/modern only app?
