Windows Media Center does not work on both my XP and Vista computer. The two events lastnight



For someone to really help him, it is important to give as much information as possible.

You say "my computer XP and Vista" are this one computer dual boot with XP and Vista, or is - the two computers 'single '?

If it happened "yesterday" did you updated anything or whatever installed?

Having only happened yesterday have you tried a "System Restore" to see if this corrects the problem?

What TV card are you using and have you verified that this works correctly?

If you get not a photo is the antenna in place properly?

Do you get any error messages? More information, you can provide more someone will be able to help John Barnett MVP: Associate Expert Windows XP: Windows Desktop Experience: Web: ; Web: ; Web: ;

  • Windows Media Center does not work when on a remote desktop session

    I have just Setup Remote Desktop on my local server and connected my laptop... whew that was a task in itself!

    Server - Windows 7 Ultimate w/Media Center installed

    Laptop - Windows 8 Pro w/Media Center installed

    I am able to run the Windows Media PLAYER on the remote desktop, and it seems to work fine after that I added the libraries to it.


    When I run Windows Media CENTER I get a message that "Windows Media Center has stopped working... Windows is checking for a solution to the problem. "The message goes away and that's it.

    Anyone got any ideas on how I can get the WMC to operate on remote desktop?

    Not very well why this would be considered as a matter of "ITPro.

    It's probably debatable that MS really intended for MC to be used via RDP, I'm not sure they believed that the feature has been used very well at all judging by what they were doing in Windows 8

    However, there are two possibilities on the cause of this. An update of the RDP client can be the culprit, but it is not always a good idea to block any update.

    You can also the following reg key

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\Rdp-Tcp

    added needs of the user group have included in its read access permissions. You can also use the run as Administrator option when you start Media Center.

    Sorry, but it's a bad way to report a problem. Description of your problem a single sentence isn't going to help a lot to understand what the problem is here. Can you offer more information please?
    TV tuner is installed correctly?
    Some unknown device is listed in Device Manager?
    What antenna do you use? Is - this cable TV or what?
    Have you tried to scan channels on MCE?

  • Windows media player does not work as no driver DVD

    Had to format drive (trojan) & reinstall Windows XP home. Now Windows media player does not work as no DVD driver download from Toshiba site?


    Usually the Windows media Player is not able to read DVD movies IF no plugins were installed.
    To watch DVDs, you can use programs such as WinDVD or PowerDVD.
    These programs are designed for the DVD play!

    But you can also visit the Microsoft Web site and search plug-ins for Windows Media player.
    Then you can download and install to play a DVD with WMP

  • Windows Media Center does not record the calendar.

    Planning to record a program, but sometimes lapsed time up to the point where it does not record. I am running Windows 7 Home. Yes, I checked preferences but which differs only up to 15 minutes max.  I have reinstalled twice already. Why please?


    (1) did you make any changes before the show?

    (2) what is the brand and model of the computer?

    Windows Media Center records the first home run HD programs or any which TV tuner installed. However, you may need to follow a few rules.

    -If you turn off your computer, Windows Media Center does not have a regular program. The computer must be turned on or "standby mode" to record a television show. The computer will not automatically in standby mode if Windows Media Center is open.

    -Make sure that you turn off the screen and lower or turn off the sound if you have one at the request of a record in the middle of the night and don't want to be disturbed.

    -Your scheduled recording may not save in the following situation: schedule you a recording in Windows Media Center to start in less than ten minutes, close Windows Media Center and put your computer into standby or hibernation mode immediately. Use or one of the following options to save your record programmed:

    a. do not close Windows Media Center before you put your computer on standby or hibernation.
    b. after having programmed a recording, wait a minute before you put the computer in standby or hibernation.

    I would have you refer to the article below:
