Question about Sony VAIO Digital Studio PCV-RX540 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Lost vaio tv listing

When I purchased my desktop (Sony) there was a program loaded called Giga Pocket. I could watch tv (125 channels) review the tv lineup, choose tv shows I wished to copy and one click to add the show at the proper time to Giga Pocket, or set up the recording manually and utilize Nero to edit and burn dvd's with very good success, hovever, all of a sudden, one day I lost the ability to view the tv listing and auto copy feature. I can still manage to copy the movies and burn them with Nero, however, what a shame Sony screwed up the listing and auto copy feature. Do I have to live with this and has Sony truly degraded to this short change tatic. Any help would be appreciated...Gene

Running your install disk will place a new OS on the drive and if what you want is on the disk, that as well. Make a backup of your data first then restore it all.

Hi Ryan,

Sorry to hear about your troubles, but I think I have something that can help you:

1. Don't shoot me, but if you haven't already, go to this link and download the package. You don't need the Giga Pocket update (is useless so I assume that is where you are having problems) BUT the MPEG encoder drivers are necessary.

2. Get the Giga Pocket app and all the frills for XP from here

3. Although I could leave it here, I know that a lot of problems arise when people install both the drivers and Giga Pocket app such as getting a grey screen for all your channels despite this whole process being such a pain. All you need to do to make it work is a little bit more work from a command prompt by registering the *ax files. Since you installed the HD, RAM and a new OS, I think you can handle it.

To register the Sony *.ax files (after installing the initial drivers and Giga Pocket):

Note: There seem to be a lot of *.ax files, so I am giving you the automated option. If you have issues and want to do each manually, let me know and I'll guide you.

1.) From the command window, type as follows:
cd "c:\Program Files\Sony"
dir /S /B *.ax

This will give you a list of all of the .ax files in all of the subdirectories.

2.) You need to copy this list into a text file. First, click the window icon at the top left-hand side of the command window. When the menu drops down choose edit-> Mark. Now you can drag the mouse to select the entire list of files. Don't forget to scroll up and start with the first file in the list. When you have selected the entire list, press enter to copy the text.

3.) Next, open Notepad and paste the text into a new document. Now use the search and replace feature as follows. First, replace all instances of c:\
with the following
regsvr32 "c:\

Then, replace all instances of
.ax
with the following
.ax"

4.) Finally, save the file somewhere easy to remember would the file extension .bat. For example, you could save it as c:\giga.bat

Now all you have to do is run the batch file that you just created. You can either double-click it or run it from the command window. To run it from the command window simply enter the filename by itself on the command line. When you run it, it will display a dialog box for each file that was successfully registered.

Re-Loading Software


Since they installed a generic copy of xp, there are none of the sony installed add-ons present on the computer. go here to view the available downloads for your system provided by sony, you will have to select the "EVERYTHING" tab to see the giga downloads if it does not load there.
Otherwise you will have to contact sony for a recovery disk specific to your system.

This one took me a while to figure out as I had the same problem.
