  • 1. start up error
    With in the last couple days my startup time has trippled from cpu off to the desktop. I have Media Center 05 with the lates updates on everything. I went into event viewer and only saw one error for every startup: The Conexant 2388x Crossbar Dual Input service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified. Here is what ive already done: Checked Device manager which says the device is working fine. I can also watch Live tv and recorded tv fine. I unistalled it and restarted. it Still had an error at startup, an I couldnt watch tv. I enabled it again and restrted and XP innstalled the new hardware but it still has the error at startup. I cant find anything in MSconfig and my CPU works fine except for a long startup time which annoys the hell out of me. Short of a reinstall, any suggestions?
  • 2. Need Recomendation for DVD Decoder for Windows Media Player 11
    Can someone please give me advise for a DVD Decoder for Windows Media 11. I do not need the top of the line. Just something that will let me watch DVD's with stereo sound. I see there are a number of decoders one that I clicked on seemed to want me to order two of them. I did not know if I needed two or it required two. It would seem the prices vary between 14.95-19.95 approx. Can someone give me some guidence. Something not too complicated. Also would I be better buying in a store?? Thank you. Gary Marks -- gjm
  • 3. No audio during Live tv or recorded tv..?
    Hi All, After spending hours trying to figure this out I gave in and decided to put the question out there.. I read the subject matter on connecting your MCE 2005 pc to your AV reciever and it works fine for previously recorded DVD's that I had on file and for other tv recording done in the past... After moving everything over to a new 1 TB hd, I can't get any sound when watching live tv or a program I recorded yesterday, but yet all of the prior recordings play fine..? I have changed and update drivers and rolled them back but now change.. I have an older Denon avr 610 that handles Dolby, dts, etc.. My preloaded Intervideo Windvd 5 works and the codec works.. The sound is handled on the board chip REAltek (Sony Vaio VCG-RA826G model with Pentium 4HT. I also have a FTA sat box and the MCE works fine there as well, provides the guide 14 days out, lets me select recordings, etc.. just no audio when played back.. I have now just finished downloading the Nividia deluxe $49.99 30 day trial version and I went into the MCE >Settings>dvd>Audio section and I saw that I had new options and was going to set it on reciever when it locked up..?
  • 4. I can't access my old user directory
    After reinstalling XP my old user folder is still on the hard drive. Trying to open it with msdos prompt says - access denied - but the pc is still showing a large amount of space used up. Are my old files still there, or if not how do i free up the space?
  • 5. Linksys DMA2200 and recorded and live TV
    My Vista Premium machine records and plays back TV programs in dvr-ms format and works great. However my brand new (and firmware updated) DMA2200 just gives the following message when I try to play them back. "Files neededto display video are not installed or not working properly". I have my firewall turned off (AVG) and I am using the Windows firewall which has "Media Center Extenders" as an exception. Any ideas? Happ New Year to all. Vic

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
