    Windows Media Center Live TV Help

    Hi

    go here - Hauppauge | Page Not Found select "Windows Media Center install" tab

    look at - Setting up your TV tuner in Windows 7 Media Center - select download (will open a pdf with screen by screen instructions)
    "Download
    Here is a screen by screen view of the setup of Windows Media Center. It was based on the WinTV-HVR-1600, but the setup with other WinTV-HVR products will be similar."

    Follow the guide stage by stage

    let the TPU community know at what "step" Media Center gets stuck at Example: step 1, step 2

    nb: It may be to do with your zip code and or post code not being entered

    In regard to your DVD Rom drive - go to -control panel/device manager/DVD/CD-ROM drives -make a note of the make and model number Example: Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-215D ATA Device - highlight the device you have installed -press right mouse button-select properties-details-property and select Install Date from the drop down list and let us know this.

    atb (all the best)

    xp media center ?

    alright - I'll try and give you step-by-step instructions for it.

    First, you need to backup the system registry. There are a few methods for doing this, but I use a dual method, just incase something goes wrong. If you don't have a 3rd party application that will backup the registry (like RegistryFix or System Mechanic), first, go to Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools> and open System Restore. Go ahead and make a system backup point, and title it whatever you want.

    Second, make a seperate backup of the registry itself. Go to Start>Run and type in regedit - this will open the WIN registry editor. In the left hand window, make sure that 'My Computer' is highlighted, then go to File>Export... In the window that opens, make sure that 'ALL' is selected, and type in a backup name and save it somewhere easily accessible (i.e. the Desktop).



    Alright, now that your registry and system is backed up . . . from within the WIN Registry Editor, in the left hand window, expand the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE> tree, then continue to expand the following folders SOFTWARE> Microsoft> Windows> Current Version> Media Center>

    Once you have the Media Center> folder selected, you should see some icons in the right hand window. Find the one labeled Indent Key, it should have an integer value listed on the right side of the window, r-click on it and select 'Modify' and change the value from whatever it is to 3.1

    After you've made that change, go to File>Exit and reboot the machine once WIN closes. Once it's booted back to the desktop, open the System Control Panel and see what version of MCE is displayed - and then try to install Update Rollup 2.
