Microsoft has stopped support for Windows 7 Media Center's Electronic Programming Guide?

I've been using the Windows 7 Media Center to watch and record local televisions more of one year.  Now, my guide-schedule is not download new data.  I tried several times to update manually the programming data.  The EPG shows the update succeeded, but no new data is displayed.  Microsoft stopped providing data to guide programming?  If Microsoft still provides programming data, what can I do to fix the problem?  PS: I have similar problems on a second computer.

After re - run the TV Setup at least 100 times, it * finally * downloaded and updated to the source of Rovi.

Keep trying, it will work eventually.  Try to run the TV setup during off-peak hours, such as early in the morning.

  • MS has stopped support for Windows 7 updates?

    I tried to get Windows 7 to download and apply updates after reloading my laptop from scratch. If I load MS System Center before SP1, System Center hog all the resources and the laptop has no effect.

    If I load SP1 right after I installed Windows 7, SP1 takes 8 hours, with TrustedInstaller taking all of the resources and the SPINST barely get all resources, even if the updates are disabled. A control is completed, for updates took two days until now and still nothing. I have an instance of SVCHOST that takes between 1.5 GB 2.5 GB, as it intentionally uses the resources to prevent updates of race.

    Last year, I successfully rebooted Win7 on more than 50 laptops, I support computers at a local college, so this is not something new for me. I also have been loading OS on the midrange and personal computers, including Windows, Linux and Mac, for 20 years.

    If this is the way for Microsoft to force updates to Win10 by closing the updates for Win7, I will seek to Linux or Mac.

    Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1520 with a Dual Core 2 GHz processor, 4 GB of RAM and a 500 GB HARD drive. Been running Win7 on it very well for a few years, reloaded just because the HARD drive failed.

    I also tried various patches KB as suggested by other posts of loading, but it does the same thing, just using all resources while doing nothing.

    The value of the automatic updates to "never check updates" and then restart Windows. Then, install KB3020369 and KB3172605.

  • Problem, reinstall the Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005

    I have problems with MCE 2005.  My hard drive crashed and the technician that restored my repressive said that he could not work in MCE 2005.  It's a shame because he was working before the hard drive crashes.  I work with windows XP.
    When I go to install the internet and begin to test the connection it gives me "Critical error of process - Code 2"
    When I go to the TV configuration, it tells me "Tuner not found".  Even if I know it works because I also Win TV7 in Hauppauge. My TV tuner is HVR-1600.
    With these problems, I thought that the solution might be to reinstall rollup 2 according to the Microsoft.
    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/910905
    However, when I go to reinstall the Update Rollup 2, it seems to be to establish a restore point and then it stops when it hits hotfix (KB891593).
    I took a copy of the mcelog and have attached a copy of the log below.

    Assistance or management, you can provide me to solve this problem would be highly appreciated.

    At this point, I'm a newbie to this and I don't have a clue as to the cause of my problems and any ideas you may have for me would be much appreciated.

    Hi kwanray,

    Welcome to the Microsoft community. According to the description of the problem, you can not reinstall the Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.

  • Try to install the Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 - on SP3.

    Hello

    All this started when my Xbox360 is dead, sent it for repair, came home another, all hung up and tried to connect to the Media Center. Of course, it did not work and the screen says to uninstall? (something), I forgot today, it has been a long road since then. BUT I uninstalled Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 and updates that came after. NOW realize it was a mistake, I'm not of the Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 on your computer. And I'm confused regarding why, for the first time, that I can't find a single KB article on this problem.

    And even if I did not restore the system off, there is no restore point on my machine.

    So I'm always searching in google and microsoft.com but a little lost right now.

    Moccan,
    Thanks for posting on the Microsoft answers Forum.  I would like to know if you read this article for the hotfix rollup: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/900325.  In particular the section more information, which has this:

    If the 886904 update is installed, you must uninstall the 886904 update before you install the Update Rollup 2 for Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Otherwise, the installation of .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 will fail.

    To determine whether the 886904 update is installed, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, click run, type appwiz.cpl, and then click OK.
    2. Click to select the Show updates check box.
    3. In the currently installed programs list, look for the following element:
      Fix for Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 (KB886904)

    If you see this option, you must remove the hotfix. To remove the patch, click Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Hotfix (KB886904), and then click Remove. Then, visit the Windows Update Web sit to download and install the Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005.

    A month ago, my laptop computer motherboard fried.  I bought a similar laptop with no hard drive and a screen broken off of ebay and tinkered together in a working computer.  However, I have Windows XP home on the hard drive of the old computer and a Windows XP media center 2005 sticker on the new product key.   Product key update tool Windows won't let me upgrade to the new key.  Is there a way for me to update my windows media center Edition, so that the key work?

    What a pleasure - this really makes the license issues a joy.
    If I understand you right, "fried" your old computer was XP Home Edition - and the replacement motherboard came from a machine with MCE?
    If so, then Yes, you must use the MCE license, rather than the home one. To be entirely legal, it must also have the sticker COST MCE glued to the box.
    MCE is XP Pro - which is a reason that you can not change just the product key-based. The other is that the update tool simply is not designed to work with MCE.
    What can you do?
    Unfortunately, there is no way around it, whatever you do will involve a clean install (to backup your data first led outdoors!) If you want to stick with MCE.
     
    (1) you can go to the manufacturer of the MCE machine and ask if they can provide the recovery disc for this machine - if you're lucky, they may still have some in stock. If they are not, try restoredisks.com
    (2) you can take your life in your hands and download a torrent of a set of installation MCE - it's going to be at least two CD there are a couple of "real" out there, who are free of malicious software, but most is contaminated in some way, so be very careful and do due diligence on any download you.
    (3) you can try to find a legitimate MCE pack on sale somewhere - I don't know what it should cost, or that also the prices on them are moving from MS stopped making years and they are like gold dust. (XP Pro prices are rising, but I suspect that MCE prices may be down).
    (4) you can purchase a legal license for XP Edition family - again, be very careful where you buy-it came to a point where there are more counterfeits than legal market. This would allow you to use the update tool to keep your current installation.
     
    Note that there is no such thing as a 'detail' MCE - MCE all licenses are OEM and as such, cannot upgrade a XP Home license, where my earlier warning about backing up your data.

    I have a Windows 7 Media Center, and if I try to open the WTV Recorded TV files I just get a pop up asking me if I want to find an app in the store to play this file format.  Why the Surface can not read files WTV in Windows 7 Media Center?

    the bottom line is because there is no decoder DVD on the Surface. If you convert to the
    MP4, the file will play.

  • If I leave the IE8 on Windows XP Mode, but never use it, is there a way I can be hacked by him once Microsoft stops support for Windows XP?

    Original title: Windows XP in virtual mode

    I have Windows 7.1 with Windows XP in virtual mode so that I can use older products, not supported by 7.1.  In virtual XP mode, there is an Internet Explorer 8.  I understand that after Microsoft eliminates support for XP that can cause future security issues.  I run the latest version of Internet Explorer on my Windows 7.1.  If I leave the IE8 on the virtual XP mode but never use it, is there a way I can be hacked through it?  Should I remove the IE8 completely of the virtual Windows XP?

    If you never use IE (any version), it cannot be 'hacked '.

    If you wanted to be doubly secured, you can prevent accidental use by uninstalling...

    • Open the Control Panel - Add or remove programs
    • Remove IE8 (and IE7 if necessary) - click to highlight, then click on remove
    • Click Add/Remove Windows components
    • Uncheck the box Internet Explorer and click Next

  • The guide to "Help and Support Center" installed for Windows XP Media Center 2004 is largely outdated and must be updated.

    I have version Dell of Windows Media Center 2005 (service pack 3) installed on my XPS 600 desktop computer.  The installed Help and Support Center guide date for use with Windows Media Center 2004 and has never been updated to include most of the changes system over the past six years. Dell or Microsoft should be responsible for the update of the guides or instructions that are installed on the operating system. Not only that, but Media Center and Movie Maker themselves also grossly neglected as updates are concerned.
    The currently installed Help and Support Center guide is missing details on significant changes to Windows applications and utilities.  I rely on up-to-date information to make changes to my OS applications and utilities.  There is a lot of information in this guide that is incomplete and misleading and therefore not very reliable.
    I have an OEM of Windows XP version and I wonder if there is an update of current or replacement for this system guide and who is responsible for the update.

    Nothing in XP will be updated. The current Windows operating system is Windows 7. XP is already three iterations of the windows behind. A great substitute for the XP search feature (which was never very good) is Agent free Ransack.
