Not sure if this has been discussed recently, but am having problems with getting Windows Media Center to get anything on Internet TV's Guide to come up. All that happens is you click on one of the TV programs listed and you hear the little beep, then nothing.

Any ideas folks? Thanks for any assistance!

Well...let's start at the beginning.

Do you have a device capable of capturing TV...installed on your system?

As for Windows Media Center...perhaps no one uses it. I've had Win 7 installed for over a year and never once thought about using WMC...I have a capture card that provided me with all the software I ever needed to capture/edit, etc.

Thanks for the reply. No, don't have a TV tuner card, but none's required according to the following paragraph (last sentence) from the link you posted.

Internet TV is a new feature in Windows Media Center that delivers a variety of great shows—primetime dramas, news, video podcasts—over a broadband Internet connection to your PC, for free. No TV tuner is required.

Thanks ;).

You'll probably have better luck in the Audio & Video software forum, rather than Win 7. I will move this topic there.

"However, Internet TV is not available in all regions. If you don't see the Internet TV option in Media Center, then it's probably not available in your region and you won't be able to access it."

You did read this...at the link I previously posted?

May want to read http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itpromedia/thread/bd80b0c7-7580-411c-b9fd-efacc61aa619 .

Checked all that, am in Florida, and had it before. And have the Guide, just get a sound when clicking on one of the shows. Can't imagine going to 64-bit dropped it (had it in 32-bit).
