The PC world I suspect you use, is IMHO, absolute rubbish, so if your pc is from there, go back & moan. Then it absolutely insisted on a load of IR remote kit that she didn't have (and shouldn't have needed). I'm looking to buy a Laptop which has got Windows Media Centre on it. In the morning, success!

Dont know about the program guide either. Furgy23-08-2006, 00:15Thanks for the reply Oh, I didn't realise windows Media centre was not an OS as well, In that case I won't be needing that...When will windows Vista be released?? James4523-08-2006, 12:50You can get an OEM version of Win XP MCE and the remote control and receiver for about 87 all in from Ebuyer.

You won't damage anything. I definitely thought it could be, but I've just saw something on the web saying to connect a tuner to the output of an STB, and connect the STB to the Temeka Zieske posted Oct 12, 2016 Temeka here from Santa Monica, CA Temeka Zieske posted Oct 12, 2016 Hello there! I **think** most dishes are powered by an external source rather than the card/STB.

Samsung is most often the problem manufacturer. Furgy23-08-2006, 13:39Thanks for all the replies, I guess I'll leave windows XP. davidmmac01-08-2009, 01:23 PMYep, Optus D1 is the satellite. http://trumphurst.blogspot.com/2013/01/windows-vista-media-centre-program.html As for upgrading to MCE, you'd probably need XP w/ Media Centre edition, then you'll still be able to use your computer as a computer.

It had probably abandoned the download, and continued - it had scanned the available TV channels, and I was able to proceed (after another delay while it tried to download guide Sign up now! I am a completely hooked on the ease of use, especially if you just want a means to watch and record Freeview (the UK free to air terrestrial service). I have a card reader, a TV Card, plenty of storage space, and a nice ferrari enzo case with blue LED lights in it, and also a case fan.

For analoguereception, you should have a group A aerial, but this is no good fordigital. Can someone please help me?

Why do you need 2? If the receiver has not been installed prior, the channel database will be empty.

  • Strangely the picture seems to bequite good, except that it "sticks" freeze-framing for a half- orwhole-second at a time.
  • It allows you to plug in a standard TV aerial lead, and you can watch TV on your PC, I think you can even run a digital freeview box through it.

I am tring to connect my Virgin cable box to my PC and run it through Windows XP WMC. I spent a whole day investigating what to do about this. You'll be able to ask questions about any tech matters or chat with the community and help others.

Personally, I gave up trying to put NTL through media centre & went with a freeview dual tuner card.

We managed to hook the dish cable back out and it works great with freeview. Edit:...which is a bit of an ache, but will run wmc as it was intended. Yes, there's a cable coming out of the wall - two actually (maybe the dish has dual outputs?), but they're not long enough to reach my PC. This had no effect on the problem.

They both come with Media player which will play DVDs etc... Am thinking possibly adding another GB of RAM to it, or buying another DVD Writer (only have 1 but don't really need 2..) Thanks in advance :thumbs: infestedsicness23-08-2006, 00:11Vista isn't out You would need to get a proper MCE remote to work in Windows Media Center. http://roguewb.com/windows-media/windows-media-centre-not-listed-in-autoplay-options-for-playing-a-dvd.html So I started it again, and left it overnight.

Unfortunately I don't have a MS remote or IR Blaster as shown in the pictures. Not really interested in consoles, I already have a PS2 that I never play....

Would it work with the program guide on Media Center?

The sound does the same thing.The Freeview postcode checker reckons that my mate's postcode isn'tcovered at all, but as I said before the aerial has just been fitted,his set-top box works It takes just 2 minutes to sign up (and it's free!).
