Hi

Hoping someone knows what to do with this, have Googled the error, tried Microsoft and no luck it has just popped up out of the blue when I last restarted my computer.

The error message is:

MSVidCtl System Broadcast Message Receiver: ehRecvr.exe - Application Error

The instruction at "0x02371b02" referenced memory at "0x00000040". The memory couldn not be "read".

Click OK to terminate the program
Click CANCEL to debug the program


so I have clicked on both OK and CANCEL numerous times with no luck it just pops up again!!!

I did find on Google some other errors similar to the one I am having trouble with, and have tried the solutions for those including:

1/ Turning off Auto Updates restarting, running updates manually, and turning back on auto updates.
2/ running 'services.msc from the Run menu and stopping Microsoft Media Centre Extender, Receiver and scheduler services, downloading file wmvdmoe.dll and coping it into my system 32 folder, restarting the computer and restarting the services I stopped.

Both have failed to rid the problem so I am hoping someone has a solution!!!


Thnx

System manufacturer and model?

Have you visited the forums of the respective manufacturer?

On the surface, it looks like this is a problem with an XP Media Center install...the normal suggestion I would make would be simply to repair MCE (I would assume that one or more files are damaged).

Hi thx for your reply

I have a HP Media Centre - about 3-4 years old, current Windows I am running is:

Microsoft Windows XP
Media Centre Edition
Version 2005
Service Pack 2

I haven't tried forums on this model but I will have a look, any other suggestions I could try before I do a repair?

Hi all again :thumbsup:

Just wanted to add this reply in as I found after following the link I posted above, once the computer is restarted it shows up again. I have contacted HP and after emails to and fro like nothing else with their so called 'Solutions' which had me remapping drives, creating new admin user accounts all which did not work.

I found that is you do not use your media center to watch TV then follow these steps to rid the solution:

Click on Start
Run
type in: services.msc
locate Media Center Receiver Service
Click on Stop
Then right click Media Center Receiver Service
Properties
In the drop down box 'START UP TYPE:
select DISABLED
CLICK OK

This will rid the error message straight away and also should prevent it from returning once the computer is restarted.
