Did I miss something, or are your forums just getting redone? I did notice that my account wasn’t recognized anymore but thought that was because I hadn’t logged in in a while.
@Gib, yes all new site and new forums
Hi Ian, I just found a reference to your website by a book I checked out from a library…”Windows 7: Inside and Out by Bott, Siechert and Stinson”, pg. 454 in the Chapter dealing with Using Media Center….
I haven’t had any luck with my question in any MS Forums and having a time find the ‘GreenButton.com’ forum as well.
Anyhow, I have an Acer/EMachines computer (only about 3 years old), running Windows 7 Home Premium edition 64 bit, my problem is that Media Center stopped recognizing/playing dvd’s (about 6 months ago). It will play, rip and burn cd’s with no problems. I keep everything updated including Anti-Virus, etc. Run scans daily,…… Can you or any educated computer user shed any light on this problem? (I am not a super computer geek, but I do know my way around most computer issues..as long as it doesn’t require messiing with codes, etc. lol)
Thanks in advance!
I realized that after I posted the comment. Was looking around at the site and saw the post I sent you the e-mail about. Then thought to myself, duhhhh.. Should always look around before posting.. LOL
Anyway, hope to get some recommendations on my post about a new small form factor media center pc. I’ve just always dealt with digital pvrs and now that I’ve decided to archive all my dvds to the EX490 I figured it was time to get a media center pc and a couple of HD Home Runs for recording TV and I can then do away with the pvrs.
Keep up the good work Ian, I just finished listening to show 235, so only have another 65 to go to catch up
it would ge great if you implement cmdline support, so tasks can be automated in the future.
Maybe someone here can help me out. here is my problem:
I did the xbox update a few weeks ago for the new console interface and it worked fine and it was working fine as an extender. Just recently I updated my Win 7 to SP1 and now my xbox can’t be used to play recorded tv shows or watch live tv anymore. I can view pictures, play music and watch videos I have on my htpc. I can’t beleive that there is no fix released yet. Maybe there are not a ton of people using an xbox as an extender but this should be addressed asap for those who are. I have seen quite a few posts with no solutions other than to reinstall windows.
I do not have a restore point to use due to my haphazzard house cleaning so right now I can’t use my xbox as an extender, which is the main reason I bought it to begin with.
If anyone has a fix to this problem, Please post it so we can all benefit.
