Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 for PC
After months of not using MCE on my XP machine I thought it was time to launch it. However, when I clicked My TV, I got a message saying: Tuner hardware is not working properly or is not installed. I have a hauppauge 150 and it is visible in the device manager.
So i reinstalled the tv card using drivers from Dells web site (my pc is a dell). But no luck. I removed all MCE updates and .NET 1 and then reinstalled it. I also removed windows media player 11. No luck either. I tried Hauppauges drivers: no luck then. I also removed all Haupauge drivers using their cleaning program. No luck.
I then reinstalled all drivers using this file i found on this page.
It gave me WinTV in which I could see all channels, so the hardware is not dead. Then I thought that MCE should be able to see the tuner. No way.
I downloaded the Microsoft Windows XP Video Decoder Checkup Utility to see if it is something with my mpeg decoder. All I could see there is that I have one MCE supported MPEG decoder, which I set as default. Still no luck.
Who can help me get MCE running again? What else should I try?
Dump Microsoft schit.People are just dirt to them.

I love this string of posts. It only fuels my hatred of this half-assed company. It's the biggest fraud ever perpetrated. This problem has existed for over a year and there is no solution. So I suppose that if my car develops some problem I am expected to not only do the physical repair but also do the full diagnosis to create a solution myself? ******** MICROSOFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go into the drvice manager
right click and select scan for hardware changes
this should popup the tv tuner and automatically install the drivers..
If that fails
turn off the system
remove the tuner card
boot the system and using the device manager scan for hard ware changes
replace the tvtuner
restatr and in the device manager scan for hard ware changes again
Also in Mce insure you have the correct imaging device and tuner device selected, this will be located in the setup options
