  • 1. Code for set top remote not "accessible"
    I have upgraded my Vaio VGX xl100 to Vista U. Everything appeard to have worked with the upgrade. However when I re-set up Media Center I get the following message on the "configure your set top box" screen. I am selecting PACE as the set top box and C1060 as the code for the remote. "windows media center is unable to access the code you selected" I will add that I have the RedEye - IR Blaster to IRDA converter and it used to all work when I was running Windows XP MCE. I have done a reinstall of Vista. I have even tried to find where to remove and reinstall the mce component of vista (but can't seem to).
  • 2. Installing Sonic.cab plug-in
    I have the 3-disc OEM version of MCE 2005 and am attempting to install the Sonic DVD-CD burn plug-in, which is on disc 2. My installation is upgraded to SP-2, all windows updates including rollup 2, and some of the features from disc 2 have been installed. However, when I insert disc 1 and select "Install Additonal Components," the Sonic DVD-CD burn is checked, but it shows 0.0mb in file size, and the "Details" button is greyed out. I know the plug-in has not installed because when I attempt to burn a TV program to DVD, the only option that shows is "Data Disc", whereas if the plug-in was in place, it is my understanding that it would also give the choice "Video DVD." I have opened disc 2, and it contains the file SONIC.CAB, but I have no idea how to get the installation disc to recognize the file, or where I would extract the CAB file to, so I could get MCE or a Windows installer to recognize it. My apologies in advance if this topic has been addressed on this forum, I'm a much better hardware than software peep. I just want to get this plug-in installed with a minimum of ceremony. Thank you for your help! -- Tom

  • 4. HD Cable: Too Much Info
    I'm going crazy trying to weed through all the info on this topic. I apologize in advance to the group's regulars for what I'm sure is a repeat offense... I've been using, with oustanding success, my Dell MCE with an added avermedia HD card. Connected to an xbox360, the family has been thrilled with the HDTV. San Antonio stations were early adopters, so we had all the networks in HD. Then along came Planet Earth on Discovery. Obviously filmed in HD, but we could only view it in SD since Discovery is a cable only program. My wife even wanted HD cable before the mini-series was over. So I subscribed. "What do you mean we can't record it?" Ugh. 1. How do I tell what is copy-protected? I don't subscribe to any premium channels, just the networks and now, DiscoveryHD, ESPNhd, and a couple of others. I'm assuming this is a factor in my setup. 2. Can I make this work with MCE or Vista MCE? How does this affect the XBox360? 3. Should I just punt and get a stand-alone DVR? Thanks a million.

How would we know. You don't tell us what machine!

Regardless, you cannot upgrade to XP Pro from MCE. You must do a clean 
install.  And why would you want to?  MCE is just Pro with a couple features 
disabled.

I want XP Pro because I want to add the machine to a domain and MCE doesn't 
allow it.

<Break>

Do not use registry repair utilites
they will probably do more harm than good.
Hopefully the utility has an "undo" feature
