Question about Microsoft Remote Control for Windows Media Center 2005 Remote Control

Media center remote doesn't work any more

It used to work just fine - hadn't used it in over a year. However, I have done a system restore on my pc during that time, to sort out a virus issue, so wondering if there's something I need to download in order for the remote and infrared to work again? the red lights flash on both, but nothing happens - help!

Hold down the “DVD Menu” button and the “1” key at the same time for 5 seconds (or the "2", "3" or "4" key if you want to have the remote broadcast on one of the other supported channels instead. After 5 seconds, the LED on the IR receiver should blink twice, and your remote should work correctly again.

My windows media player is not working...why?


When did it stop working?
Try a System restore. Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Choose a date when you know Windows Media Player was working OK.
If that doesn't work Download VLC player or iTunes as an alternative.

Media center keypad not working


If you are using windows, when the OS is booting, press F8 and select "last known good configuration" in the list of options. Most probably it'll work If it doesn't, try restoring the system to a previous state using system restore utility.
Thanks

I recently connected cable tv to my media center, but the remote doesnt work anymore. Do I have to reset it to make it work if I havent used it in a while. I changed the batteries first but it didnt help


if you have a camera mobile phone just place the remote transmitter(front side) before the lens switch on the camera and press anything in the remote if you could see any colored light flashing in it then the remote is working fine.If not try replacing the remote.
If your system comes withe separate drivers for the tuner then try reinstalling them it will help

Windows media center on start up freezes computer, why


When that happens you usually need to backup your data, and reinstall the system to fix Windows corrupted files.

Try first doing a system restore to the most recent date before you started having the problem. If system files are damaged this will not help.

The media center is part of the WMC operative system. You can also reinstall media center alone using add remove programs, then Add remove windows components. Often that does not work, and you need to use a Windows MCE setup disk to fix the problem.
