    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)

    Reinstall 8.1 Pro with Media Center.

    Win 8.1 Pro Windows Media Center Expired

    I bought a license Windows Media Center with Win 8.1 Pro. I am of course getting notices that Windows Media Center will not get TV scheduled listings after the end of 2019. Win 8.1 Pro lifecycle is "The lifecycle of Windows 8.1 will remain under the

    same lifecycle policy
    as Windows 8 with support ending 1/10/2023." So it seems Microsoft is again reneging on promises. If you bought a licence for WMC for Win8.1 Pro they should have the same lifecycle?

    I was a Windows Vista Ultimate purchaser with all the promises of special innovative things being rolled out. Microsoft didn't fulfill that promise.
