  2. If not, how do I get that update installed so the system will be up to date?
  3. I am helping a friend who gave his brand-new computer to some wannabe techie to install some stuff who blew away his Media Center's ability to play Live TV.
  4. that worked great.
  5. The posting of advertisements, profanity, or personal attacks is prohibited.
  6. Method 2 worked like a charm.
  7. Thank you so much andy that worked out perfect all it is is being quick with it 10/19/2008 Anonymous said...
  8. This has been a constant nag for awhile and now it's gone!I have one small quirk left, every time I close out Media Center, it makes an error sound like "DONK".

Also, next time this happens you should get a Blue Screen with an error...you will have to hard reboot(hold the power button in for 5 seconds/until the computer shuts off) anyway Well Jason, after trying option 2 it fixed the problem! If the DVD does not show up on the desktop, refer to these instructions from Apple. note: If your PC came with WinDVD and it does not appear in the application recovery program, you can download and install WinDVD version 5 from the Software and Driver download

It took me a few attempts to get the button strokes just right to catch it before the error box pops up ad you have to save before the box appears I can get the Live TV to work now. On Linux: Our DVDs should play like any other DVD, using your DVD Player of choice. On a consumer DVD player: Our DVDs should play like any other DVD.

Andy's method worked for me. Awesome, thanks for the tip. 9/14/2008 TiaLis said... I cannot seem to find that user in the reg edit. you just have to be quick (or have a slow computer maybe?) before that error screen comes up.

thank you, this worked perfectly! https://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/media-center-decoder-error-356922/ close all windows, and restart the media center. I run a Linksys extender and that still gets the message. If you dont need Messenger funtionality in MCE I have managed to uncheck the 'allow instant messaging' box in messaging and caller ID menu despite getting the 'unable to load messenger'

I suspect you had both issues occuring concurrently but independent of each other. 8/26/2008 Flux said... weblink I get the message also. Track this discussion and email me when there are updates If you're asking for technical help, please be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and Control panel, add/remove programs>left side, click on Add/remove windows components>scroll to bottom of list, uncheck messenger> hit apply.

I had the same problem and if worked for me. Yes! close all windows, and restart the media center.

I did a video driver upgrade as per Dell and the picture came back on my laptop (XPS M1210)but started having other issues, I went back to the old video driver

The UI option re-appeared. if you can select the option to disable, it will go away! I would just like to thank you for your fix. the fix from "Andy" did it for me.

No error or anything. Just reboots itself back to the desktop.
