    Media Center is part of the operating system so won't be in programs.



    Where exactly is device manager in control panel?

Try going into uninstall programs and find media center.
Highlight media center and click on repair.
See if this helps.
Your might also look in your device manager thats located in your control panel and see if there are any problems there.

    Go to Start/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager

    scroll down to sounds and click the +, check and see if you have Media Control Devices listed, if you do right mouse it and click update driver. see if it will update.

    If you dont have it there then you might have to do a xp repair.

    If your using vista go to start/control panel/device manager then follow the same as I described above.

    let me know

    One thing, when you get into device manager if there is a problem with any of the hardware it will show a little warning sign next to that item

    You can check all of your system drivers http://www.drivershq.com/

    Good luck and let me know how your making out.

Tv tuner not working


Hi ,
I had exactly the same problem and followed the instructions
in this link:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/g...reg_R1002_USEN

In my case, the Service called "Windows Media Center Receiver Service"
was not in Local System Account, so I changed that as stated in the
instructions and problem resolved !!
btw, the instructions say that you have to reboot after the change is
made, but you can try to start it manually (in the General tab). That
worked for me.

Good luck.

No Tuner hardware !


The PC must have a cable tuner card installed and connected to be able to record and show TV.
The extender uses the PC for showing the (recorded) TV.

Windows madeia center


This is all I found. If this tuner isn't digital ready chances are there isn't going to be much support for this and you will have to get a new one by next February.

Here is the current software link:

Do you have tv tuners installed and setup properly? Media Center 2005 is just the software, the computer needs to have hardware tuners in it and hooked up to external antenna or cable.

I am having problem with tv tuner card


i think your tv tuner is defective even if it is new, still factory defects can happen. try to install it in another computer, if you experience the same problem then it is defective. but have you checked your device status at device manager under sound, video and game controller. if you see a yellow apostrophe or a question mark it indicates that your tv tuner is havent been installed yet. try to double click the device and you'll see update driver then try to intall it by choosing automatically driver, be sure that the cd driver is inside your cd rom.
