Windows Media Center EPG does not have the correct data

Windows Media Center EPG on my computer is so ugly!

Description is separated in two, and it's always the last part that displays first, so you'll have to roll down to the bottom to read the description.

The series is difficult to use, because the series 1) is not always marked as series (so you can select 'plain' Record), and 2) the title contains often series of numbering (e.g. "the bodyguards (1:6)"), so even if it is marked as a series, it will record ever "Guards body (2:6)" or other titles (the Media Center will just try to record any episode of "Bodyguards (1:6)").

It is the broadcaster who create * data, and then displays in Media Center via Broadcasting Dataservices Ltd., or who are the last to blame?

What is MS Media Center that does not have the correct data?

I am in Denmark, if this has an impact on the response.

Thank you and best regards!

  • The keyboard on the Windows Media Center screen does not appear when I hit the enter keyboard key!

    I searched through the internet trying to find a solution to this annoying problem: after change to enter the registry and the application of the value entered for showOskOnKeyboardEnter under MCE. PerUserSettings, I always have problems serious on-screen keyboard to appear by using the key "Enter" on the keyboard.  I managed only a couple of times to get the OSK to appear among the dozens of attempts, however, I am unable to recreate the actions - is absolutely not stable.  The only area that reacts to the 'Enter' key is looking for music.  All the fields in the section of Netflix and movies search fields are unresponsive.  Not even works tap triple function.  The only compatible and possible way to have the OSK appear is to double click on the field - that does not work given that the goal is to have an IR remote with the Media Center application interface.  The button 'OK' on the remote control is mapped to the Enter key (except if WMC has a key code value for the 'OK' button).  Help, please!

    I had this problem and it was very frustrating.  The posted solution did not work for me initially.  What I've discovered, is that you have closed Media center before editing the registry.  If you change it while it is open it does not pick up the change and then save settings (i.e. with showOskOnKeyboardEnter = 0) when you close.

    1 close Media Center.
    3. Open Media Center.
    Should work now.

  • Windows Media Center displays/does not play videos in folders of same accurate as they have always been saved

    Videos that previously played by Windows Media Center (which came installed on my laptop) suddenly stopped appearing in Windows Media Center records, although some videos (very few) are always show and play exact same files on my hard drive as videos which stopped working.

    I don't know that I did something to cause this, although maybe I did, inadvertently, or certain updates or new facilities caused program.

    Please help, I use Windows Media Center as my main videos media player. Windows Media Center is not connected to a TV, just use it as a media player on my laptop.

    He also noted - I recently moved several files from my hard drive to an external drive, if it will be of any significance.

    Thank you.

    you go into media center tasks and add new locations to
    storage/libraries? some external drives can be a problem, too.
    best bet is a system restore. You can CANCEL a system restore if it does not work.

  • Windows Media Center Guide does not correct list shows

    I use a Vista Home Premium, the other day I reformatted my computer because I had problems with it. everything went well and media center opens and works very well. However, it used correctly list indicated in the guide, no matter what I do, and it worked properly before the reformat. The channels are listed correctly, if TBS is supposed to be on channel 2, according to the guide, is, therefore, when I go to channel 2 I am indeed on TBS station, BUT even if the show is listed as 'Home' in the guide, which is in read mode is like Sienfeld or some other show. Even when I record programs when it starts recording it will tell me 'Reecording House' and when you go to channel his record some other show is apparently on at that time.

    I tried completely relative to the implementation of the centre, tried to re-do ads guide by using 3 or 4 different postcodes, tried to look in my BIOS to see if my system clock is off, I tried looking for an updated driver but can't find the Media Center or don't know what it's called , and nothing has worked so far.

    What is the problem with my Media Center? Is an off clock that actually play the shows at the wrong time? I've been home 3 days now so please if you know EXACTLY what is wrong just to give me a bunch of things to try, and I'll try them

    Thank you


    Hi eps3742,

    This can happen if the media center guide downloads information guide incorrect.
    I suggest that you try to re installation guide and download the guide for registration again and check if it works.

    To set up the Guide listings

    To find your favorite programs more easily, you can configure your Guide lists to match your local service provider's guide listings.
    1. on the Start screen, navigate to tasks, click settings, click TV, click Guide, and then click Set Up Guide ads.
    2. follow the instructions on the screen to configure the list of Guide for your region.

    If you are prompted to select a TV provider and you do not know which one to select, control a recent draft Bill or statement from your TV service provider to find the appropriate information.

    The providers listed in Windows Media Center vary according to the Postal Code or ZIP. If the supplier subscribe is not listed for the ZIP or the Postal Code entered, try entering local codes find the appropriate Guide listings.

    Check out the link for more information below.

    I would also say that you check if the time zone in windows is set correctly.

    If the previous step fails, then try to download the cumulative update of the Center media of the KB article below and check.

    Date Created in IPTC field...

    This programming bug is most likely due to the use of a 32-bit variable at a certain time, rather than a 64-bit variable.   It would be good that you posted a bug report on the new official website of feedback: om

    Details of geeks: Date / time on Windows and Mac are often represented as number of seconds more or less from a specific reference date (e.g. 2001-01-01 00:00:00 UTC).   A signed 32-bit integer can represent a total margin of 2 ^ 32 seconds, or about 136 years.   Note that the difference between the entry date (1906) and the displayed date (2042) is 136 years.   So be a date outside the range of 32-bit (1906), caused the time to boil over and wrap around 136 years (until 2042).

  • Windows Media Player 12 does not have subtitles subtitles

    The situation is this: in my laptop I have Windows Vista and WMP 11. Normally, I download any movie .avi and the respective .srt subtitle file, place them in the same folder, make sure that they have exactly the same name (with the exception of the exxtension, of course) and then have no problems to play the movie with subtitles. But, in my netbook, I have Win 7, WMP 12 and after following the exact same steps subtitles don't have fun. I tried the basic checks such as "Enable subtitles/captions when available" and it doesn´t work.

    You have any ideas on how to solve this problem?

    Thank you!



    To enable the functionality of subtitles in media player, we need to rename a system called mfpmp.exe file. Follow these simple steps and you will get the subtitles in your Media Player.

    Method 1:

    a. Click Start.

    (b) in the search bar, type cmd.

    c. click right on it when it is listed and run as administrator.

    d. in the command prompt, type the following command and press ENTER.

    takeown /f C:\Windows\System32\mfpmp.exe

    ICACLS C:\Windows\System32\mfpmp.exe/Grant (username): F

    For example, icacls C:\Windows\System32\mfpmp.exe/Grant Pablo: F

    e. you should be able to delete or modify the file now. If you still can not, you may have to restart, and then try again. Try to rename the file to mfpmp.old.
