Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 for PC
Most of the time on our media center one of the front speakers (left/right) does not work. I'm sure it's the software because i have played recorded tv on my computer here over the network and in the middle of the episode one speaker just mutes at the same point in the recorded segment every time.
And this doesn't just happen when recording tv. Most of the time one speaker is just sitting there and if we get lucky the other speaker will have sound coming out of it too.
Are you able to get sound on the speakers without the media center? In case if the problem is just not limited to media center-Then it could be a sound driver issue...!
In case if the sound works fine outside the media center then its a setting problem with the media center.i suggest you run the first run wizard to reset the media center.
To reset the media center
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\eHome
locate the file- ehshell.config-Just right click and delete it
2) delete the following registry keys
open registry editor
Start > Run > type regedit and hit enter
it opens a registry editor window
locate the following keys
right click on these keys and delete them..You just have to dig down to these keys and delete them in the left hand pane. and then close the registry editor and restart the system.
After the reboot windows will ask you to reconfigure the media center-you just have to follow the wizard to complete the process...This should do the trick and should avoid a complete reinstallation of windows.

Tips for a great answer:
Aug 15, 2013 | Audio Players & Recorders
1. Connect the black plug of the rear right speaker into the black plug on the subwoofer.
2. Connect the yellow plug on the rear left speaker into the yellow input on the subwoofer.
3. Connect the red plug of the front center speaker into the red input on the subwoofer.
4. Connect the white plug of the front left speaker into the white input on the subwoofer.
5. Connect the d-sub connector plug from the front right speaker into the d-plug connector on the subwoofer.
6. Connect the green, black and orange input to the matching plugs on your computer. If you have a four-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the front plug of the card and the black plug to the rear plug. Do not connect the orange input. If you are using a two-channel sound card, connect the green plug from the input audio cable to the "Line Out" jack on the sound card. Do not connect the green and orange plug.
7. Plug the subwoofer power chord into the electrical power outlet.
8. Place your subwoofer on ground around your computer desk. Position the front center speaker on top of your computer monitor.
9. Place the left and right front speakers on the sides of the monitor. Position the left and right rear speakers behind you, making sure they are pointing toward the front left and right speakers.
10. needs to support 5.1 surround. Normally, more than three sockets for sound indicates that it does. Then you need to use the software that comes with the sound hardware to configure it for 5.1 - Default will be 2.1 or just 2.
Check the control panel out. This is a lot easier under Windows 7.- Here you can access what you need via the speaker icon on the system tray (right click)
There is NO problem with your OS or hardware, this is pretty standard...
hope this will help you solve your problem.
