Folks,

I have Windows XP media edition, service pack 3.

The tv/video has stopped working when I start media and try and get the tv bit working. In fact it stopped ages ago and I've only just got round to moaning about it. The media program loads ok fine, I select 'tv', it thinks about it and then in the little tv box in the bottom left hand corner it simply says 'video error' and then locks up. I have to start task manager to get out of it. Then some sort of 'debug error' box appears but that doesn't seem to fix anything.

Any simple solutions appreciated, I'm not particularly computer literate....

Thanks,

Nick (UK)

I would try uninstalling...then reinstalling the drivers for the TV capture, using Device Manager.

I don't know how these appear on a Media Center system...but my capture card drivers appear under Sound, Video, Game Controllers when properly installed.

Any yellow question marks in Device Manager?

Hamluis, there's no tv capture thing in device manager and no yellow question mark errors. All the drivers for the video codecs etc. are up to date. I seem to remember from old posts that this may be something to do with previous windows XP updates messing up the video....Note that all other video is fine, it's just the tv in the media bit.

Thanks,

Nick

Afraid I can't offer more, I have no familiarity with MC systems.

I would suggest trying repair install (if you have MCE 2005 and an installation CD).

You might check your system documentation for problem-solving alternatives...or the website/forum/FAQ for the manufacturer of your system.
