    I am using Windows Media Center XP and lately it has starting maxing out the CPU causing the video to pause and sound to be distorted. How do I determine/fix what is causing this problem? Vic
  • 2. How many TV Tuners can I install on MCE before reaching max limit?
    Hi All, I have to test over 200 Adaptec 3610 Dual TV tuners (one tuner at a time, of course) using my PC running Media Center Edition 2005. For a while things worked great and I was bale to test 100+ tuners. I still have a long ways to go. Today suddenly I am unable to install any new Tuners, MCE will not recognize any new tuners even though the drivers get loaded fine (& tuner lights shows that drivers got loaded fine green light). I know MCE tracks ALL installed tuners even after they are unplugged. I think I may have reached the max limit of tuners that can be installed. Here is what I have done thus far: 1) Enabled Device Manger to see 'nonpresent' deices & then removed ALL unused (Grayed) Tuner related devices - No Luck :( 2) Uninstalled ALL Tuner drivers and re-installed them - No luck :( 3) I have used MaxRegistry Cleaner - No Luck :( Can someone please help? What do I need to do roll back things & make MCE recognize the Tuners again? Please note I only test one (Dual TV) tuner at one time. I appreciate your help. Many Thanks & Cheers
  • 3. MCE recording problem
    I have the settings for recording set to minimum, meaning it is on the "fair" setting for recording quality-problem is, when I record a 1 hour TV show, the file ends up being 3GB, when it should only be 1GB. So in other words, the recorder is continuing to record in the best quality format instead of the lesser quality. How to I fix this problem-its stuck and won't change. Thanks.

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
