  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

    you go into media center tasks and add new locations to

  • My copy of windows media player 11 does not play video.

    My copy of windows media player 11 does not play video. When you try to play the video (usually an avi file) I get audio and visualization. I tried to uninstall and install new, but does not. I chose also to all types of files media player by default but video still does not play.

    An avi file is simply a container that may have different types of files in it for video and audio.

    You probably don't have the correct Codec to play the video.

    Either download a codec pack such as K-lite or download a little program called G-spot, open it and drag your avi file in the center of the small window of G-spot.

    It will then tell you what Codec uses the avi file. You can then Google that particulat Codec, download and install it.

    See you soon,.


  • When I copy a CD in Windows Media Player 11 does not apply media information.

    With the XP sp3 operating system, I rip the CD purchased and Windows Media Player 11 does not apply media information. Either he gives and error saying that it cannot be done because I am not connected to the internet while I'm connected, or it can recognize my internet connection, but I have to do a manual search and manually apply the name of each track, even if they are present and order under each line I have to click to match the name of the correct track.

    It's so frustrating to have to fight manually for applied information on the media which is clearly presented, and after all, album art that shows correctly in the finder info media constantly refuses to fill in the library and I have to go to a separate Web site and copy and paste it in. Yes, he found elsewhere on the internet, with the help of the connection which was present all along!

    It's crazy, the info is already there! And why do I go online in any case the info is in the CD? This doesn't seem to be a problem with the previous players. Please provide a fix for this useless, frustrating dinosaur, waste of time, a process!

    Hello rockys_rod,

    To fix it, simply remove your old library files. Then have Windows Media Player find your new files. It will not destroy your music files.

    How to get WMP to re - index your music:

    1. close Microsoft Media Player.
    2. click on Start and then run
    3. in the box, type the following:
    [list] %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player

    4. click on OK and a folder containing your library files will be displayed
    5. delete all files ending with .wmdb
    6. open Microsoft Media Player
    7. press F3
    8. Select the addresses of your music files
    9 WMP will re-index your music.

    If this does not help, try the FixIt in the article below:
    KB Article ID: 947541 -Windows Media Player stops responding after you install a third-party product that registers its own version of the Wmp.dll file

  • Windows Media Center visualizations will not work

    My Windows Media Center visualizations will not work for some reason any. its been like that for a while.
    When I listen to music and want to see my office shows that the program is still underway
    I thought it has something to do with the visualizations I instaled on Windows Media player
    (like ribbons and Upcube)
    I tried to remove them, they either come back or he will constantly ask me to go to it

    I missed a CD command before the directory (since corrected) so orders would be as follows:

    CD C:\program files\windows media player\visualizations\


    You'll see the DLLs listed here, they are visualizations that have been installed (if the author decided to use directory default visualizations) NOTE: there may also be cases where the author badly spelled directory visualizations and used something like "visualizations".
