    Windows media control overlay not working properly


    I have this issue since I don't even know when I first noticed it. The stuff that comes up when you press volume in some windows programs whereby next to the volume there also come media control buttons. My problem is that the buttons are all square blocks. Otherwise they seem to work when you press them (the middle square block for example does what a play/pause button is supposed to do... and so on and so forth).

    What on earth is going on and how do I get the actual buttons back?

    For clarification here is what it looks like: https://i.imgur.com/ejL3BJo.png

    Radeon Overlay not displaying all options

    Ok, I got a question. The options to hide the overlay are confusing. What are the steps to turn on the overlay in-game? Not interested in logging much at the moment. Is Alt-R part of turning it on/off?

    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)
