If this has previously worked fine, then choices are: 1.) run "system restore" to an earlier date when you know it worked. 2.) re-install windows xp

Sounds like the driver for the TV Tuner is not installed, or the video and audio drivers may not be installed properly.

Decoder problem with media center 2005

Try the Free Decoder addon K-Lite Codec Pack 5.51 posted on FileHippo.com. If not.... the Video Card may have a Driver Update and that should include the Decoder Software for TV or Cable.

When I try to run my live tv I get a message that files needed to display video are missing or corrupt and it asks me to restart the Media Center. I did that but it did not resolve the issue.

I think this refers to the MPEG decoders required to show TV in media center.
You need to install Power DVD or a stand alone decoder from NVidia or ATI

well, if you got experience on reformat OS, do so, Go ahead and format and install the Windows Media Center, there could be something missing from the restored past installation.
Wheather or not you see the right drivers, in control panel, is a best way to reformat the system and if you got all the drivers, install them after the OS installation..
good luck
