"created the slideshow" inside loop problems (Windows Media Center) during playback

Why didn't Windows Media Center during playback of a repeat of the start file "slideshow created with music" and / or "loopback", with only the first 20 or so (on perhaps a 100 total on the full slideshow) slides or photos over and over again without showing the rest of the majority of the slides at all?


Hey trasel,.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to include another small video clip for an existing video on which you have already created.

However, you can create a new slide and add it to the existing one.

  • Not able to run the digital cable Advisor in Windows Media Center

    Digital cable Advisor

    I can't get the digital cable Advisor in Windows Media Center in Windows 7 Home Premium.  After I installed Windows back me to the same Setup screen.  From what I read on the program, after installation it is supposed to start.  I checked the Extras Gallery and it does not appear there after installation.


    I started taking screenshots of the process tonight and of course the DCA installed successfully and actually worked!  My system has passed the test.  I tried installing in DCA 100 times before and never had that day!

    I suspect that the root cause was due to a problem with the motherboard that was recently repaired.  At least that's my story and I stick to it!

    Thanks again for your help.


  • Problem: Windows media Center Configuration connection to the digital cable box.

    I have HP Pavilion Elite with Windows Home Premium.  How do I get the library to accept the signal from the digital decoder (without additional I.R.).  The signal passes through fine using the S-video input, change channel with the cable, but 'Set up' box control requires I connect "I.R. Blaster (?) covering the cable box sensor which then beats command of other devices (television, etc.) using the cable box.

  • All the program icons have the same appearance and open Windows Media Center

    Original title: cannot start a program
    When I click on an any program icon on the Windows 7 Desktop, a window appears with its contents: suggested program to open Windows Media Center. All the programs on the desktop icons have the same appearance.

    Using Word 2007 to get an example:

    I've seen this happen when opening a program via a shortcut on the desktop (for example. LNK file), you are asked what type of program to open it with. After you select theWord (or another program) via the Select a program from a list of programs installedand checkalways use the selected program to open this type of file, the referenced by the shortcut of origin Word document opens in Word as it should.

    The problem is that now all shortcuts (for example. LNK files) on the desktop or in the Explorer will want to be opened by Word and use Word icon to display the shortcut. This is known as a file association and the default icon. The same condition can occur if you have performed these actions on one. JPG or even a. EXE, but the. LNK explanation is much more likely.

    This has happened enough that a small utility was written to cancel the. LNK file association was created. There is a registry hack to do this, but I recommend the utility unLNK for its ease of use.

    A utility to Unassociate Types of files in Windows 7 and Vista

    Just use the utility to unassociate the. LNK files. Operating instructions are available on the web page above (the same place to get the utility).

  • Windows media center - slideshow with music stops at the beginning

    Hi, trying to create a slideshow with music. The track is 3,30 long, has 53 photos to 4 second transition, but it stops the music in 3 minutes. It is said in the 3 minutes selected editing area. How can I fix it?

  • Please read, the issues of Windows Media Center EPG

    What is the current status of the problems with downloading the Guide EPG/program for Windows Media Center?

    I've heard from the right inside Microsoft person (who was on holidays) and he is now aware of the reported problem. It is transmission of information from here and connect to the team of the EPG.

  • Windows Media Center cannot often record saying "recording of this content is prohibited by the content provider.

    This happens when the program is one that I've recorded previously.
    If I go through the process of setting up the TV signal, record work very little time after, but the next time I try to save, maybe the next day, recording fails again.  I have Windows 7, card AverMedia Hybrid NTSC/ATSC and Comcast.


    I suggest you try the following steps:
    Step 1: You can try to update play ready in Windows Media Center. To do this, follow the steps below

    In Windows Media Center, click tasks > settings > TV-> TV Signal > update play ready.  You can accept the EULA ready to play (End User License Agreement)
    For more information on the subject of play ready, you can also view the link below:

  • Add the network location in Windows Media Center for recorded TV

    Locations of tv settings, tv, recorder, more Windows Media Center does not outside of the local computer.  I used Media Center to record some TV shows and I want to spend my laptop on USB large network of an old desk for viewing later.   Because I can't point to this place I'm stuck.
    The files are on USB key and visible in windows media player and video location in Windows Media Center.  In other words, none of the news of the series is visible in Windows Media Center (but is in windows media player), so I can't continue to record series because Windows Media Center is not aware of the episodes already on USB network.

    Hello Johngi2,
    Thank you for your message.  To change the location of your recorded TV shows and always keep the info so that you won't get duplicates please browse to the following location in Media Center.
    Settings > TV > TV recordings > TV storage > storage location
    You just change the location of storage on your USB.  Please let us know if it did or did not help to solve your problem.

  • Windows Media Center has not worked since the storm (Windows Vista)

    I have Windows Vista with Windows Media Center (which I LOVE!) through this huge dish on our House, but we had a big thunderstorm last week. Since then, I have been unable to get most of the channels to watch TV via Windows Media Center. I know that it is not a problem with my antenna because if I choose to watch TV directly through the air and not through Windows Media Center, I receive channels without problem. Any help would be great! (PS, I know almost NOTHING re: computers, so you'll really have to "dummy down" your answers to me). Thank you!

    Just a guess here, I don't have a tuner currently in my computer. But is there an option in media center to perform a channel SCAN. On my TV, I had a similar problem and all I had to do was rescan and VIOLA all my channels were back!

    Good luck!
