I have been grappling with this problem for a while, and would appreciate
My system: Toshiba Qosmio G20, Pentium M 2GHz, 1 GB of RAM, nVidia GeForce
Go 6600, XBOX 360 directly connected with cable (Internet Connection
Sharing), WinDVD Decoder 18.104.22.1688 set as preferred decoder, Avermedia
AverTV USB2 HDTV DVB-T BDA Video Capture (A800) with latest WHQL Driver
A number of times over the past few weeks, I have reinstalled the operating
sytem from the OEM recovery disks, and downloaded and installed all Windows
Updates (including optionals and hardware).
What Works: MCE Live TV shows Standard Definition (576p) Channels without a
problem; Media Center on the TV Set via XBOX 360 shows all Channels including
High Definition (1080i) brilliantly, AverTV 6.0 Windows Application for
viewing TV shows all Channels including HD.
What Doesn't Work: MCE Live TV on one particular channel which broadcasts a
High Definition Demonstration Loop. As soon as I switch to this channel, my
whole system freezes - the display locks up, the mouse stops responding, the
clock stops, Ctrl + Alt + Del doesn't work, etc - for about seven minutes.
Then other Channels report No Tv Signal for a few minutes. Then everything
returns to normal, until I try the HD Channel again.
What I've Tried: Re-installing everything from scratch; removing and
re-installing the latest Update RollUp for MCE; re-installing the latest
DirectX; installing just the Drivers for the Avermedia. (I am aware of a
conflict between the AverTV6.0 Application and MCE... If I run AverTV App,
Media Center loses connection with the Tuner until I reboot. The AverTV App
also installs its own decoders which DecCheck reports as neither MP nor MCE
compatible. Installing just the Avermedia Drivers does not install the
decoders.). I have also tried the trial nVidia Pure Video decoder which gives
the same result as the WinDVD decoder... the big freeze.
It would help if you gave some indication of where you live. I am assuming
Australia as you have MPEg2 HDTV but I could be wrong. Please also provide
details of exactly what channel you are having problems with.
