  • 1. nVIDIA Decoder: Newer Trial in the Works
    Hi All, I just got an e-mail from nVIDIA's tech support stating that they are going to be releasing a "newer" trial version of the decoder, which was programmed to work as long as the full version is not available for purchase. Exactly when that will happen is anyone's guess. nVIDIA has been surprisingly guarded about the whole thing. They couldn't have done it any better if they intentionally wanted to turn away customers. I'm starting to think that there may be some truth to the speculation about their MPEG license expiring, or some other legal hassle. Anyway, this does give all of us, who haven't tried any other decoder, a chance to, well, try a different decoder. I'm goint to go with PowerDVD for 30 days, followed by WinDVD for 14 days. If I'm not smitten by either of these, I hope the 44 days will be long enough for nVIDIA to bring out their "new" trial version. Curiously enough, my 30 days were over as of 4/26 and everything still works as usual. Not that I'm complaining about the 3 extra days, but I was wondering, what happens when the trial is over. I mean *really* over. What stops working? I would expect that the display of any kind of video on your MCE PC would stop. Other than that, it should be business as usual. I mean, you should still be able to record stuff and watch everything on an MCX device, right? Anyone care to shed any light on this? Thanks! Pat
  • 2. wme 2005 / music issues
    I noticed after the rollup that my mp3 files are visible but not recognized in media center. There is a place holder for each album but when i click on it I get a message that says album is missing. I changed the folder name and location and then added the new locatyion and folder. Still the problem persists. I reset Media center to factory new and still problem persists. I recreated the wmp database files and searched and added files again, still the problem persists. Can someone help with this?
  • 3. Problem with Media Player 10
    I have some problems playing back videos in both Media Center and Windows Media Player 10. Screen appears green, only sound plays. I remember messing up with the settings, but don't remember what settings i messed up. Could somebody tell me how to reset or restore default settings in Media Player (or media center)? It cannot play ANY type of video file. (*mpeg,*avi) Thank you. -- You should try Media Center.

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
