Radio Stream not working with Vista anymore?

Hi there Please Please help me with this issue as its affecting my job!

Im using Vista Home Basic on a Toshiba laptop, AOL as my ISP and Macafee is my viral software - and for some reason the radio broadcast that I listen to on the William Hill website isnt working - Ive updated Java, flashplayer9, shockwave, windows, unblocked the pop up facility, made sure the firewall wasnt blocking this connection etc - - - this is nothing to do with mute buttons, sliders or anything like that as the little screen in flash, actually shows you the connection on screen (which is now blank) so I know its not even connecting to the site so nothing is playing through the screen at all as its not even connecting.

Something I feel needs to be checked, unchecked, enabled or disabled somwehere and is soemthing probably simple and silly - but its driving me to dispair. the radio streams works on my stand alone system that has XP on it .. but not on the laptop with Vista on it.

The weekend though, it did do one of its famous system updates and since then a few things went haywire, the clock and sate had to be adjusted (I discovered this cause windows live messenger wouldnt work, but tis working now) and this radio broadcast wouldnt work, and still isnt working.
My partner (thinking that he was helping) actually did a system restore taking the laptop back a few years lol so retracing the weekends update isnt possible now!

Please please help me if you can!
sincerest regards

Terry

    Sorry but like I say in the main text of my questions, this has NOTHING to do with mute buttons, sliders, volume or sound - this is a CONENCTION problem as the flash media player screen (on the radio stream Im trying to access) is not workings its blank.. so I know its not a 'sound' issue cause the flash screen isnt working (even though I have updated falshplayer 9 and shockwave and java etc)..... thanks for trying anyway!

Hi i have a DVC 100 , im using it to stream my live gaming events on justinTV , i can stream a perfect picture but i can't get sound to work with the stream, im using Adobe falsh media encoder to help...


Welcome to Fixyah,

I believe that DVC 100 whend it comes for streaming is concern is not supported to used it and all I know is the only supported is to capture and record the video coming from VHS, Camcorder, VHR and DVD player using the program coming from it.

Windows Vista business & Home Basic


Hi,
No you can't downgrade once Vista business is installed, what i do recommend you do is when Vista business asks you for the product key, if you input "your" key for home basic it should theoretically install home basic for you as most of the install DVD's are multi installers (basic, premium, business and ultimate)

See if that helps you.

URGENT CALL:- Critical Error that keeps restarting system?


Definately not a "major issue"... it is a Software issue rather than a Hardware issue...
And most likely a conflict with your ActiveX controls...

Try This....
Go to Start...Programs......Windows Update..enable if disabled.. and it will search for updates and hopefully install the SP1 update...
This update download apparently has patches for the exact error you have and that is a typical Vista "hiccup" error....

try that, if it doesnt help still, we can go from there..

Windows Vista installation failure On some Windows Vista systems Flash Player may be installed, but will not display Flash content. In some cases updating to the latest Flash Player using the included utility can correct the User Account Control settings that cause this problem.
To run the utility, find your installed Flash folder:
  • Right-click C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash\FlashUtil9d.exe
    The letter changes with each Flash version, so may be "FlashUtilb.exe" or "FlashUtile.exe"
  • Select "Run as Administrator"
  • Follow the steps to complete the Flash Player installation
  • Restart your computer
