How to install the code28

Are you using a PCI sound card rather than the onboard sound? The onboard is listed as "ADI AD1888; 5.1 channel audio" & IMO, it's much better than "C-Media CMI8738/C3DX Audio".
If you are using a PCI soundcard, did you disable the onboard sound in the BIOS? The drivers for the onboard can be found here:

View media from your computer to your PS3

What you need:
Windows (XP-7)
A recent router system
Internet cords
Surround Sound system (optional)

Make sure all your connections are in. You can do this wireless, but the picture will be choppy. If your router is 2 feet away from the PS3 then no problem.
Go into your PS3 settings and enable ATRAC, WMA playback and Media Server connection. Leave the PS3 on.
Go to your computer and go here to download PS3 Media Server.
Once installed, go into Navigation/Share Settings. The default is "all", but if you want to only specify certain folders, click on the "+".

A matter of CPU. If you only have one, only playback files if they are 7-900Mb, anything more and your CPU will be struggling to send the data.
2+ cores and you can playback files as large as 4Gb-20Gb.

The PS3 is compatible with a wide range of files like MKV, AVI, M2TS and WMA.

You can even enjoy your music and edit photos. Turning your gaming system into a media entertainment centre.

I can only speak for WinXP Service Pack 3 and Windows 7 build 7100. For me the program worked flawlessly. Handling full 5.1 Digital surround sound.
The settings were fine on the Media Server, not having to change a thing.
I haven't experienced any trouble with the software and I have been using it for 4 months now.

Windows media centre decoder in use

Media centre can use a numnber of codecs to do this job, you just need to make sure it has a choice. You need to download & install a codec pack. Microsoft has one which you can find on the website but the most comprehensive one is KL Codec pack. Google it & install the standard version, just use all the default settings & that will fix your problem.

Windows media does not give audio on some avi files.vlc and nero players are fine . how /why is there a diffrence?Is it a codec problem if so can a different codec be copied into the windows media player...

This is due to the configuration of your AC3 filter or the absense of AC3 filter. VLC media player has these built in but for Windows Media player/Media centre you need to install & correctly configure the codec. Google KL codec pack & install the full version. Take all the default options, re-boot & all your audio will play through Windows Media player & media centre. KL codec pack also contains many other useful tools & codecs & nothing that will harm your PC. Don't forget to rate me.

Am trying to reinstall windows xp media centre ediition following reformatting hard drive. I get the message `boot manager missing. So cannot reinstall my xp media edition os.

Where and when do you see that message?

Windows need to be installed on one of the primary partitions (not logical ones). What's more - the partition they are installed on needs to be active. More info on disk partitioning can be found here.

One way to fix boot manager problems is to start recovery console - it is described here. Next you need to log into your installation and type to commands: fixboot and fixmbr.

Live tv skips in media center

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

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.
