Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 for PC

1 Answer

No video in Live/Recorded TV

When I try to run Live TV or play an old Recording in my XP MCE 2005, it just shows a red screen while audio plays smoothly.
The same recorded videos play properly in Windows Media Player.
I think this happened after I installed an update which sounded something like KB089250 "Rollup for Update Rollup 2" on Nov 4.
Once I got a weird error that I reported to Microsoft which suggested that it was due to Intel's Graphics.
I did a system restore to an earlier date, but the problem persists.
I have an Intel GMA 900 onboard graphics card on my 915GV motherboard. My TV Tuner is Hauppauge WinTV 88X.

Should I reinstall the updates or something else? Please help me.

With adobe audition 1.5 how do i get my voice to play back through edit view? Ive really been up all night trying to figure this problem out someone please explain step y step

First, be sure you see the audio track on "edit view". It shows the peak of the recording level. If it is a straight line, you have not recorded your voice. If the recording is there, you have to be sure your computer audio is set to play back through the speakers. If the recording is not there you have to set the computer to record from your input, either line or mic input. Set the level to the max. When you record you can see the input level on the two bars at the bottom of the screen. Double click on them to see the input level before you start recording. You want the level to be near "zero", at the far right. If the level is above "0" the peak indicators will turn red. You don't want red lights. Set the input level just below the red peak. Click on the red record button at the panel on the lower left of the screen. When you click the record button you may see a pop up that want you to set the recording parameters of the file. You have to make these selections before you can record. Once that is done, the record button will show the record position and audio track scroll across the screen. You will also see the level bars respond to the input. When finished recording click the stop button. You should then be able to play back the recording.
There are many adjustment and changes you can make to recorded files. The Adobe help files are very good explaining the features of the software. It is a very powerful audio system. Good luck and have fun with voice and music tracks.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I transfer recorded programs from my 622 DVR to my home computer?
User guide. above.
You would have to connect up, using a PC & DVR software and some form of TV/Video recording Card, or USB device. Then connect up via AV, Composite, Yellow, Video. White & Red Audio. and "Capture" either live video & Audio, so basically whatever was viewed on the screen, would be "Recorded" on the PC, via the TV/Video interface device, if using a laptop, then a USB "Dongle" & software would be the best. In a Desktop, a PCI-I card would be Best, Then using the Software that comes with the devices, you "Record" with that and "Play" with the Dish DVR, and save, the Streamed Video & Audio to the PC. Now, If you have Component Out, on the Dish, then this is the one to use, If you choose this way, remember the Device you are going to use Must have a Component INPUT as well, as A Stereo Audio Input, so ensure the device you get has that feature.

Volume loss after VCR recording

Try adjusting tracking to detent Sounds like audio heads are miss aligned . Does your unit have audio levels if so turn them up when recording. Try adjusting tracking or try patching recording unit to the tv .If it has L/R video inputs use the same deck you recorded on for playback. .

Dubbing from VCR to DVD

Dont use xp mode. Here are the definitions:
SP is short for Standard Play. Standard play allows you to record information onto the tape the way it was intended, with no quality loss. By default, VCRs and camcorders will record your footage as standard play. On a standard VHS tape, recording footage in SP mode will yield 2 hours of video.
LP is short for Long Play. Long play allows you to record much more information at the expense of quality. It accomplishes this by reducing the speed the tape is run through the VCR. As the tape speed decreases, the quality will also decrease. You’ll notice this effect when comparing a tape recorded at LP versus one recorded at SP, especially after years of storage. The LP tape will appear more blurred, have more tracking and color issues than tapes recorded at SP. A VHS tape recorded at LP can hold roughly 4 hours of video.
EP/SLP is short for extended play. Extended play is similar to LP, but actually provides you even more recording time. EP was primarily used to document long, continuous events without the need to change video tapes every 2 hours. Due to the fact that the video is not of optimal quality, many times this setting was not used in order to preserve the quality of your footage. Tapes recorded at EP usually are the most problematic after years of storage, displaying a wide variety of tape damage symptoms including color loss, audio loss, frame skipping, and tracking issues.

See the manual, page 8:

What are “Recording modes”? for DVD-RW
There are two recording modes available using this
recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to
a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode.
DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording
or Video mode recording.
VR mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Not playable on regular DVD players
• Recordings can be extensively edited

Video mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Limited editing features
• Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
Note :
DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for
recording on DVD-R/RW discs that was approved by
the DVD Forum in 2000. You may therefore experience
problems playing recordable DVD discs in some players.
Symptoms include video artifacts, audio and/or
video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping.
Our company cannot take responsibility for problems
playing discs recorded on this VCR/DVD Recorder in
other players.
