  • 1. DVD Writer not recognized in MCE
    I have an HP machine that came installed with MCE. The first month or so, everything was fine. The DVD-RW (HP Lightscribe) initially worked with no problem, as I was able to make the 'recovery' DVDs just after the machine was purchased. However, after about 3-4 weeks, the DVD drive description in the hardward profile now shows "CD-ROM" for the description. Also, if you put any media in the drive, it spins and spins for about 2-3 minutes, then nothing. You can double click on the drive, and it shows nothing is in it. But you can also right-click on the drive and select "Eject" and the drive opens. So the communication is there. I've tried several different DVD-RW and DVD-ROM drives, and each time, MCE will initially recognize the drive correctly (via the balloon at the bottom right on the task bar), but then will change to "CD-ROM" about 3-4 seconds after it shows the accurate description. I've updated the firmware on the drive, and downloaded and installed any drivers that I could find. I was able to recover it briefly by going back a couple of restore points, but eventually it disappeared soon after again. HP's response is "re-install", which, if I do, I'm doing it with Windows XP and not MCE this time. Anyone seen this happen at all? I've been messing with PCs for about 10-15 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

  • 3. Dual Tuner Setup in MCE Vista
    Hello - I read a lot of these posts and got some good information, but not the information I was exactly looking for. I appreciate any help you guys can give me. I have a dual tuner TV card (Hauppauge PVR PCI II 23xxx) in a Windows Vista Ultimate system. I had it set up where both tuners were using direct coax NOT through a cable box and it worked great. I could record two channels at once with no conflicts or problems. Now, I'm getting some higher channels (99+) that I need a cable box to view. So I want one tuner to use the cable box and the other to simply use the channel 2-99 coax straight from the wall. In the 'Select a Working TV Signal' window I get both the cable box picture (Composite Video 1) and the direct coax picture (Channel 2), but when setting them up past this point it asks me for an IR cable for both connections. The direct coax picture (Channel 2) does not need an IR cable since it's connected directly to the wall. How can I set this up? I'd really like to not have to pay for a second cable box. -Gina

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
