Windows Media Center Not Working Vista
Reply Dave July 25, 2015 I am on wifi only and tried removing and readding, but still not getting an updated guide past 7PM central time here in St Louis,MO. So when you install Windows 10 losing Windows Media Center for DVD playback, what to do? I tried watching TV again and it told me that no tuners are installed, and I got the "media center receiver service stopped working" error multiple times.

The new TV setup data could not be downloaded. That was the end of that. And thanks to you for taking the time and articulating the solution so clearly. Try the Dallas one I referenced (75075 I believe it was).
I haven't heard of that specific error in the past - is this on a Windows Vista system or a Windows XP system? I had success with this workaround on three different PC's with three different video cards. Reply Byronincoosbay says: January 26, 2011 at 5:31 pm Hi, about a week ago I started having a problem with Windows Media Center on my Windows Vista pc. I don't know of a way to re-install it other than to re-install Windows Vista (same as for the core Media Center features themselves).
In the Providence RI area, 02861 did not work, 02863 worked partially and 02703 (nearby Attleboro,MA) worked perfectly. Suggestions: For Microsoft on this issue going forward it's critical to the user community that the guide data is available for all locations. Its s shame the way MS treats existing customers. If I put in a zip code that is serviced by my cable company, even if it isn't mine, it just pulls up all those cable companies to make my choice
I hope that I will not need to perform this process again when my guide requires another update. I have received the > following > information in the 'problem reports' > > Problem Event Name: APPCRASH > Application Name: wmplayer.exe > Application Version: 11.0.6000.6324 > Application Timestamp: 4549b52a > I have also uninstalled and reinstalled my nVidia 8500GT video card with no luck. the download failure happened again.
Reply Brian July 22, 2015 anyone find a working one for Atlanta, GA? The selection with WMC ATSC DC Tuner did not work on either system?) select "Next" TV Source Setup Finished "Do you want to set up another TV signal? At that point, an error box opens with the supposed fix as stated in Microsoft's KB947464. Ultimately being stubborn and running the setup on the same zip code multiple times worked for me.
- Need that app for my tv tuner.
- Removing/Reinstalling the WMC feature as described above - didn't work initially.
- If SFC is reporting problems and it cannot fix them, then this means there is something wrong with the files that came with your OS, and you may have to try
- Still no luck.
- They fixed Los Angeles OTA 7, 9, 11, and 13 in 2 days.
- My issue was described here (thegreenbutton.com/…/98859.aspx) - Guide never downloads, channels are OK, no WMC Event Log, can't find Guide download log file.
- Fortunately, apart from relying on a third-party DVD player, you can also rip the DVD as a digital file accepted by Windows Media Player.
- Reply Patrick Brady July 26, 2015 The problem I am having is that my Media Center seems to be downloading the guide from the old provider.
I'm pretty sure that Microsoft is aware of this issue now and I would expect that they are looking into this. Not sure if the Windows version is ready to go yet, but should be pretty soon. The zip code method is hit or miss and did not work at all for downtown Dallas or surrounding areas (tried them all). Copyright © 2016 Digiarty Software, Inc.
Is is possible that I may have caused more issues by attempting the Service change? http://thumbd.net/windows-media/windows-media-center-parental-controls-not-working.html Assuming so, I tried that and still see "Zapt2it" listed when I access "About Guide Listing". For some reason, that zip code didn't work for my Windows 7 computer, but 77056 did work. I tried them all?
I tried the steps above. Could that be the problem?…and if so, how can I get this file back? This blog post will provide the steps that I used for this workaround and suggestions for this issue going forward. weblink See http://zachd.com/pss/pss.html for some helpful WMP info.
Thanks again, Neil Reply Aaron Stebner says: April 21, 2007 at 10:23 pm Hi Nsbalt - If there is another program or process running on the system that uses the TV I live in Longview, TX which has only one antenna west of town and I get most of my channels from the stations around Tyler, TX and Shreveport, LA. The problem is that WMC cannot connect to the internet.
With the removal of Windows Media Center on Windows 10, you lose the option to play DVDs.

Reply Gaervern says: May 10, 2007 at 2:19 pm I was able to restore the system files with EMC Retrospect Express back-up program, that came with WD My Book. If you have a zip code which you found which works please post it here.
I had to remove and reinstall WMC **and** change the DNS to google. I use a metro pcs hotspot because charter charges almost $60 a month for cable internet that is marketed at 30mbps- which is laughable. For details and a full list of zip codes which the community has reported as functional, see the excel spreadsheet. check over here Alas, didn't work out for me.
I don't have Xbox (nor will I have it) so I have no idea how they think that's going to work. Before doing that, you might want to post a question on the forums at http://www.thegreenbutton.tv/forums to see if someone there can help suggest any additional workarounds to try before you have Restarting does nothing to solve the problem. I can't open System Restore, troubleshooting options, my email, google, games of any type, McGaffee, Norton, Perfect Optimizer, Windows Explorer, etc, etc.
I had to take an additional step. My guide no longer shows the programs for any of the digital channels (I have time warner "analog" cable, but get some basic digital channels). A successful update to the guide was able to be show that the data was successfully being gathered from Rovi as shown below. Reply Cameron Fuller July 26, 2015 To open the recovery task open start and type "scheduled tasks".
I have two other machines running Windows 7 in other parts of the house and they work fine with no changes needed to the host files as mentioned in other posts. Or you can just rename "mmswitch.ax" on your system to "mmswitch.ax.bad". A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. by R.
When I try to open Media Center, I get an error box stating that the Windows Media Center has stopped working. Cripes, they are giving free upgrades to Win10 for Win7 users but Vista is left in the dust. It is now almost completely taken over! Someone elsewhere posted that, after entering 16 different zip codes in 4 tries, they finally got one of the zips to switch to Rovi.
I hate Kobe/XBMC and I'm not a fan of Portal. Tried a bunch of ZIP codes from the five boros. Finally I reset my home router and DSL modem. Reply Rich says: August 30, 2011 at 2:08 pm Deleting Recordings.xml worked for me too!
How could anyone working a customer service desk not have enough knowledge of the product to know that the eHome folder could be emptied and rebuilt? New 12 Mar 2007 #4 zachd [MSFT] Guest Re: Vista Media Center Not Working - Help!
