Lost of HP Digital TV Tuner signal, with Win Media Center, on a random weekly frequency

I have a HP Pavilion dv9500 Notebook, (ref : dv9649em - GY429EA#ABF - CNF73912X6 ) and use a HP Digital TV tuner
bought with an HP notebook Pavilion tx1000, it's an express card tuner format 34, used on the express card port 54 of the dv9500. The dv9500 run on Win vista premium family with pack 2. On a regular random frequency, around one time per week. I lost the TV tuner signal after the record of a program, when it try to record a new program, because window cannot load the driver, in the product manager, the port USB 2 Intel ICH8 EHC 2836 or 283A, have an error. I must uninstall the USB 2 drivers, reinstall it, and do all the reinstallation, of the tuner in the Window Media Center, which is not an automatic process, at the detection of the tuner, and which is a long and boring process. So I'm really fedup of this situation ? Is there someone who have a  solution ? Don't you have a solution to solve this bug ?
Thank a lot, of your help.
Christ..

 Is this assuming you've selected "antenna" and then "digital" when initialy setting up your tuner in WMC? So ... if you selected set-top box/cable and then went through the process you don't get local HD? And if you select Antenna -> Digital -> and manually input the frequency, then you get HD from your local cable? If so, then this is a pretty cool tip... Thanks!

Please post rather than send me a Message. It's good for the community and I might not be able to get back quickly. - Thank you.

  • Premiere Elements cause problems with Windows Media Center while streaming to TV.

    I was having the following problem:
    The audio from the streaming process of a recorded TV show on my HP computer to the remote receivers, a Sony Blu-ray player and/or a Sony Streaming Player, results in the loss of audio signal at exactly 30 seconds from the beginning on either devices. The video continues on as normal.
    A user on the Windows 7 forum had the following possible cause and solution.  His response was as follows:
    I "solved" my issue, at least partially. Turns out for me a codec installed by Adobe Premiere Elements for audio (Main Concept) was causing mfpmp.exe to fail (you should see it getting an appcrash in the event log two or three times as soon as you start playing the media remotely.) This program is used by microsoft for DRM. I went through and one by one remained the various attached (non-microsoft) modules until i found the one that caused the appcrash. I haven't fully figured out if Elements is now negatively effected, but that's for a different forum.
    I tried the quick fix by un-installing Adobe Premiere Elements.  The uninstall solved my problem with Windows Media Center, but I want to re-install the software but I do not want to recreate the problem with Windows Media Center.
    Is there another solution for this problem?

    I reinstalled Adobe Premiere Elements 10 and the above mention problem reoccured.  With a little detective work I was able to determine that the file causing my problem was "mc_dec_dd_ds.ax".  I am not sure what this does to Adobe Premiere Elements 10 since I removed (renamed) the offending file.  A strange side affect, renaming the file did cause an increase volume. Strange.  

  • Using the Apple Remote with Windows Media Center

    Hello guys
    First of all, I am Swiss, so excuse me for my bad English (grammar and stuff...)
    So, my problem: I bought the Apple Remote and I think it is very awsome! But since Apple has removed Front Row in Lion, I don't really can use it anymore. So I'd tried to use it with Windows 7 Media Center. But it doesn't work correctly. Does anyone know, how to fix that?
    Thank you

    I had a Green Button remote provided with HP PC XP, Vista for Windows Media Center prior to getting Mac Pro.
    Now in Lion, I have Hauppauge WinTV HVR-980 USB adapter (less than $100) including a remote that works in Lion for the Hauppauge TV app.
    In Windows, the same remote works with all "Media Center" processes Music, Pictures, TV... instead of mouse/keyboard. If your TV service requires set top box, then you have to use its remote to change channels.
    If ISP's internet Co-Ax also carries TV signal, you can get Cable Splitter (smple picture):
    http://www.ebay.ca/itm/2-Way-TV-RF-Coaxial-Cable-Splitter-CATV-Signal-/320868649 227?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ab543090b  
    and feed 1 co-ax to USB TV adapter, the other to your Modem/Router.
    The Hauppage USB was a good choice because it serves Mac & Windows.
    Also, In Windows, if you have an XBox, it can be used as "Extender" for your A/V output.

    Although this may not answer your question, it describes other options.

  • Networking the mini with a Media center PC

    I have my Mini networked with a PC with Windows media center. I have not been apple to see recorded TV from the PC to the mini. Any ideas?
    Mac Mini Duo   Mac OS X (10.4.6)   networked wit PC

    yes, absolutely, for standard playback, the integrated chipset was good. the problem was XBMC doesn't seem to work well with the nouveau driver, even trying to browse menu's was super choppy, took like 10-20 seconds everytime you press down in a menu for example to see the selection change. i could have used nvidia's binary driver, but i've been using nouveau for so long now, and it actually makes my system feel like it has a quad core which the nvidia didn't at the time, maybe nvidia's drivers have improved since then? but at the same time, i'm glad i got the radeon, the XBMC performance is great, and the HDMI hookup for the tv is convienient as well. Also using the vga input on my TV, i kept having to adjust the screen position because its constant autoscan everytime the resolution changed did not get it right, with the hdmi its lined up perfect without having to mess with it. so i think the 50$ for the card and an hdmi cable was worth it

    Note that it says it is out of date because of pacman.  Really all you need to know is that pacman uses signed packages now, so it is now necessary to run the pacman-key stuff.  Or set SigLevel = Never in pacman.conf
    Edit: IMHO the first method is preferred because it more closely resembles a regular install.  Ergo, you will be able to semi follow the beginners guide for config and such.

  • Problems with Elisa Media Center (images quality)

    Hi
    I decided to install Elisa Media Center on my laptop. Everything works just fine, but only images from photo gallery are very ugly (I mean ragged). Don't know why, but when I play slideshow all of my photos, all of them are really bad looking. Just look.
    This is screenshot from Elisa:
    And that's how this image looks in original format (quality):

  • Anyone using itunes with XP MEDIA CENTER?

    I have had trouble installing itunes for DAYS! I kept getting the is not a win 32 app...did the troubleshooting but cant get the itunes uninstalled because it never got installed and cant find where to remove the set up. When I try to delete the TEMP folder it has two prgrams running with MEDIA CENTER that will not delete. I contacted apple and they said it is not compatible ith MEDIA CENTER EDITION...however, RADIO SHACK SWEARS it is. HELP!

    Not to my knowledge. Media Center's music functions are essentially a wrapper around Windows Media Player - whatever you can play through WMP and add to its library is accessible through the Media Center UI. Unfortunately this does not include your AAC and M4P files. There are some freeware and commercial decoders out there that will enable AAC playback through WMP (www.rarewares.org/aac.html, www.3ivx.com), but for any protected files you're out of luck.
    As for front-ending iTunes through Media Center, the HP interface you refer to is the only one I know of and frankly it's not very good. You might try The Green Button forums, a quick search turned up at least one likely thread.

  • TV Tuner with my Media Center is not schanning all chanels.

    Had PC recently worked on to clear out virous.  Afterwards, I can not receive all scanned TV chanels.  I cannot pickup half of my HD chanels.  This is not a cable or modem problem.  Is there a driver or solfware change that could turnup my my tuner or trobleshoop this problem?

    Sounds like Windows or WMC may be corrupted. I would try a System Restore to revert the system back to a previous date.
    Also ensure the channel width in WMC is set to 7mhz, not 8mhz.
    Also update the BIOS.
    If that's no help, then back up your important data and run Recovery to reimage the HDD back to its factory state.
    To run Recovery, turn on the notebook and hold the 0 (Zero) key down.
    You should create Recovery Discs first, there should be an icon on the Desktop, or use the Toshiba Recovery Disc Creator from the Start Menu.
    Now if it still doesn't work after a fresh Windows install, then there could be a hardware problem. In which case, you would need to send the notebook to a Toshiba Service Center.

  • Can't use WAP2 with XP Media Center and WRT54GL

    I downloaded and installed the patch from MS that supposedly enables WAP2 on XP, but when I switch to that level of security, I lose all connectivity. Did I miss something in the setup?

    First of all, give your network a unique SSID. Do not use "linksys". If you are using "linksys" you may be trying to connect to your neighbor's router. Also set "SSID Broadcast" to "enabled". This will help your computer find and lock on to your router's signal.
    Also, in the computer, go to your wireless software, and go to "Preferred Networks" (sometimes called "Profiles" ). There are probably a few networks listed. Delete any network named "linksys". Also delete any network that you do not recognize, or that you no longer use.  Also delete any entry for your current network.  Reboot computer.  Now return to "Preferred Networks" and enter your current network info (SSID, encryption, and key). Then select your current network and make it your default network, and set it to automatic login. You may need to go to "settings" to do this, or you may need to right click on your network and select "Properties" or "settings".  Reboot computer.  Computer should connect automatically.
    If the above does not fix your problem, download and install the latest driver for your wireless card.
    Hope this helps.

  • Editing/renaming mp3 files and folders on my Zen Micro with Win Media Player

    Can anyone tell me how I edit and rename the files all ready on my Zen Micro? For instance: I have 3 folders named "2Pac", "2 Pac" and "Tupac" and would like to put them all together under one name.
    I also want to get rid of the album subfolders. I have changed the files in the Library, renaming files and folders, deleting all album names, but the changes don't seem to be made on the player.
    I can't seem to change them directly changing folders and renaming files on the right side of the Media Player Screen either. Only option there is to delete files.
    Bepppe

    Thanks for the tip Baldbear, that should work.
    So I guess it is no way of editing the files when they are all ready on the player.
    Is it then impossible to get rid of the album subfolders? (without deleting all files an transfer them back on again. I would have done it if it weren't for the fact that the sync stops for no reason every 5th to 30th file I transfer.

  • Poor OTA reception with Windows 7 Media Center but fine with other software and my TV

    I installed a new tuner (ASUS EHD3-100 dual ATSC tuners) into my Inspiron 518 (7 Enterprise, C2Q 2.4GHz, 3GB RAM, 640GB HDD, Radeon 5450 512MB, most recent drivers and updates installed).  Tried to set up the tuner in windows 7 media
    center and had to add the tuners manually.  It found all the stations I was looking for but many had only one red bar for signal strength.  If the stars line up correctly I can watch the stations with one red bar but most of the time I get an error
    message.  I even have one station with all green bars but Media Center still gives me an error when I try to watch that station.
    I then decided to use the software that came with my tuner (ARCsoft Total Media).  All stations came in with a strong signal.
    The signal used in both situations came directly (I unplugged the cable from my TV and plugged it into the tuner) from an antenna in my attic that has been connected to my TV (Pioneer PDP-4280) which shows a signal strength of ~60% plus for all stations.
    Pretty sure it's not a signal strength or quality issue because everything works fine with the TV and with Total Media.
    Would rather use Media Center because it seems easier to navigate and is easier on the eyes. 
    Any ideas on how to get the stations with only one red bar of signal strength working in Media Center?

    Have you ran the troubleshooter yet?
    If you're having trouble setting up your TV signal, try using the Set up TV tuner troubleshooter to automatically find and fix some common problems.
    Open the Set up TV tuner troubleshooter by clicking the Start button
    and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click
    Troubleshooting. In the left pane, click View all, and then click
    Set up TV tuner.
    Notes
    During the setup process, you might be asked to install a program called
    PlayReady. PlayReady allows you to play protected, premium TV content from your service provider in Media Center.
    If you receive an error while setting up your TV tuner—for example, a download error, or an error during PlayReady installation—you might need to go through the entire setup process again in order for your TV signal to work properly.

  • Media Center and Aver tuner

    I have media center pro on my 8.1 64bit system. I have an AVer tv tuner that is built into system. Media center Electronic program guide no longer working and the program will be gone with the new windows 10. How can I get an EPG for my Aver tuner to schedule recordings of favorite programs. There is none in the Aver settings. I contacted AVer but they said I had to contact hp. Anyone know what is going on?

     If you want to keep Windows Media Center 8.1 Pro with Windows Media Center and HDTV recording you can fix the Program Guide updates.  The issue was due to the Program Guide provider change on 7/7/2015 discussed here: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/26-home-theater-computers/2058850-big-wmc-guide-changes-starting-today.html What I did was re-setup the TV signal within WMC which switched the Program Guide to the new service provider:  Tasks>Settings>TV>TV Signal>Setup Up TV Signal    On my system it found many new channels that didn't work.  I removed them from the channel line up using: Tasks>Settings>Guide>Edit Channels. I have looked into a TV recording/program guide replacement for Windows 10 and if you have a Hauppauge TV tuner card, they do have a Windows 10 software offering on their home page at hauppauge.com.

  • Windows Media Center Weak/No TV Signal until I restart...

    SYSTEM INFORMATION:
    I have Windows 7 x64 Home Premium installed on my system. I have a dual TV DVB-T Tuner installed (Geniatech T1880). I have an ASUS M2N68-CM Motherboard, 3.1GHz AMD 64 Dual Core CPU, 4GB DDRII RAM, 1TB HDD space, ATi Radeon HD 4350 512MB Graphics Card.
    PROBLEM:
    Sometimes, when I try and watch TV on my PC, I get either no TV Signal, or Weak TV signal, no matter what I do, whether its rescan, try new cables, try another Arial socket, none of these work, however, if I just restart, it seams to kick the tuner back into action again, this works every time, although I cannot find what could be causing the issue in the first place.
    Any ideas? Any suggestions would be helpful!
    Michael.

    I have tried the software that the user recommended on the other forum from PetrPruner 's post. That proved for me that my drivers seam to be fine, however, I'm currently in the process of installing some of the latest drivers, and I will report back on that soon!
    I also just received a Windows Update from Microsoft regarding Windows Media Center for x64 systems, so I'm going to run some testing, and I'll get back to you on that as well, hopefully with some details on the update itself, and where it can be downloaded if it doesn't come through for anyone.
    Update: The latest Windows Media Center update hasn't worked at all for me, no better no worse.
    Incase anyone else wants to give it a go, and it hasn't come through Windows Update yet, here's the link:
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=179608
    Update: I've now updated all of my drivers, and flashed my BIOS... Updating the drivers did nothing but waste time for me, but for others it may work, so try it! Flashing the BIOS seamed to have improved the issue, although after leaving it running for some time, its back, and just as bad, so that hasn't worked either :(
    Just done a bit more research following up on PetrPruner's link, which also sugested finding drivers that use the same chipset, but what would be for a different card. This has fixed the slight spiking the DPC Latency Checker software was reporting, although it hasn't fixed the issue with Windows Media Center loosing the signal over time.
