  1. Windows 7 user needs a Media Center Replacement.


    I have 2 machines with 2 TV Tuners running Windows 7 Ultimate for the media center. I have looked at the possibility of going to 8.1 Pro and using some Media Center keys I have but feel my best bet is to run Windows 10 with a local account with a version of Power DVD that plays DVDs and Blu Rays and I can also stream stuff from a browser. What I need are some recommendations for a program that will record TV from the over the air stations and play them back with a 10 foot screen resolution. The program does not have to be free, I don't mind paying for the listings etc or the developers time. I just want it to work. I have a machine that runs 10 from time to time with all the apps removed so I don't want anything to do with MS store unless something is outstanding. These machines are for playing media via browsers and Power DVD and also the TV software for the odd program I like to record for later. I need to get this done by Jan 20th 2020.
    Thanks in advance
    Tony

    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)

  3. Windows 7 Media Center... Anyone?

    If anyone is using Media Center in Windows 7... Can you confirm the support for ClearQam support? Have you successfully configured this with your TV tuner?

    I've been putting off installing 7 because of this.

    Any feedback would be great.

    Thanks

    Annu,

    Thank you for your reply, but I am already aware of the information contained therein.

    What I am looking for are suggestions as to third-party replacements for Windows Media Center, with an emphasis on sound quality.
