    We have been having the exact same problem. We updated with a "rollup" and it got slightly better, but it eventually starts it up again.

    What kind of hardware is this running on (CPU type & speed, RAM type and speed, free hard drive space)? What services and other processes are running on this machine at the same time?

No this has no effect. Usually jittery audio is hard drive or resource related as it is writing data and outputting data at the same time.
one reolution may be to scale down the quality of the recording to see if that helps.
Lastly check for updated audio/capture card drivers

I want to fix a video problem XP media center 2005. Can I use the Repair ability (not recovery) from the reinstallation disk for just fixing media center and not affecting XP?


nah it doesnt work like that sadly.

most video problems are caused by the graphics adaptor driver.

click start
right click computer
click properties
click hardware tab
then device manager

everything in yellow means its a driver problem

it could also be you have the wrong driver installed or the settings are messed up. YOu have to reinstall the driver. use the cd that came with your graphics card or the one that came with your mainboard if you dont have a graphics card.

If you lost your cd the drivers can be downloaded from the manufactures web site.

Windows Media center recorded TV playback


Some possible causes can be system heat causing the video card to freeze. Sometimes it can also be related to the video driver or MPEG2 decoder. Make sure to use the right decoder and filter for the video playback.
