    Have Windows 8.1 pro with Media Centeron aLenovo twist

    Going into Media Center then Extras - shows no extra available, I am trying to use a digital cable box and need the connector which should be extras.

    As noted elsewhere, I did these steps:

    tasks - Settings - General - Automatic Downloads Options - Download Now

    Even after waiting a day, no extras appear. Even after a long period (hours) if I try to download again get a prompt "A Download is already in process"

    Any idea?

    DB:3.31:Does Xbox 360 Scan Windows Media Center For New Music ak


    Hi nwills,
    Ideally, Xbox 360 should automatically scan if new music is added to Windows Media Center. However, you may also manually synchronize them by following these steps.
    a. You may connect the Xbox. On the Xbox's dashboard, select "My Xbox", then select "Windows Media Center" to receive the eight-digit code. This code allows your Xbox to recognize your media player on your computer.

    b. You may configure Windows Media Center on your PC. Click the "Tasks" and select "Add Extender." A screen will appear asking you to enter the eight-digit code from your Xbox 360.
    c. Play music on your Xbox. Select "Windows Media Center" from "My Xbox" menu and begin playing music.
    Hope the information helps. Please post back and let us know.

    Przy pierwszym uruchomieniu programu Media Center zostanie wyświetlona strona instalacji zawierająca informacje dotyczące różnych funkcji, a także zostaną udostępnione dwie opcje instalacji. Najszybszą metodą jest oczywiście wybranie instalacji
    ekspresowej. Tę opcję może wybrać użytkownik, który chce błyskawicznie rozpocząć korzystanie z programu. Jednak aby uzyskać więcej możliwości programu Media Center, warto zapoznać się z opcjami instalacji niestandardowej.

    1. Korzystając z pilota programu Media Center, naciśnij zielony przycisk Start.
    2. Podczas pierwszego uruchomienia programu Media Center na stronie instalacji wybierz opcję Kontynuuj, a następnie wybierz opcję Niestandardowa.
    3. Po wyświetleniu strony zatytułowanej Wykorzystaj najlepiej program Windows Media Center wybierz opcję Tak, aby zezwolić programowi Media Center na pobieranie okładek albumów i dysków DVD, aktualnego programu telewizyjnego w przewodniku,

    •Program Media Center można również otworzyć za pomocą myszy. Kliknij przycisk Start, kliknij polecenie Wszystkie programy, a następnie kliknij polecenie Windows Media Center.

    W przypadku wybrania opcji instalacji ekspresowej można później powrócić do procesu instalacji niestandardowej przez wykonanie następujących kroków na ekranie startowym programu Windows Media Center: przewiń do kategorii Zadania, wybierz kolejno opcje

    No...Music was showing up, now it's not showing up at all. I tried adding the folder where the music is. I can get the music showing on my Xbox, but it's not showing up at all on Media Center.

    a couple of things to try, in this order

    1. try a system restore to where things were working
    2. if that does not work, open a cmd prompt and run

    sfc /scannow

    3. If still not resolved, set up a new user with administrative privileges (NOT the built in administrator), log off current user and log on to new user, set things up again.

    Første gang du starter Media Center, får du vist en konfigurationsside med oplysninger om forskellige funktioner samt to konfigurationsindstillinger. Den hurtigste metode er, ikke overraskende, Ekspres. Du kan vælge denne indstilling nu, hvis du vil
    starte med det samme. Men lad os gennemgå indstillingerne for brugerdefineret konfiguration, så du får et bedre indtryk af, hvad du kan bruge Media Center til.

    1. Tryk på den grønne startknap ved hjælp af en fjernbetjening til Media Center.
    2. Hvis det er første gang du starter Media Center, skal du vælge Fortsæt på konfigurationssiden og derefter vælge Brugerdefineret.
    3. Når du kommer til siden Få det meste ud af Windows Media Center, skal du vælge Ja for at gøre det muligt at hente albumcovers, dvd-covers, aktuelle tv-programoversigter, oplysninger fra onlinemedietjenester og andre praktiske oplysninger ved
    hjælp af Media Center.

    Tip!

    • Du kan også åbne Media Center ved hjælp af en mus. Klik på knappen Start, klik på Alle programmer, og klik derefter på Windows Media Center.

    Hvis du vælger konfigurationsindstillingen Ekspres nu, kan du vende tilbage til den brugerdefinerede konfigurationsproces senere ved at benytte følgende fremgangsmåde fra startskærmen i Windows Media Center: Rul til Opgaver, vælg Indstillinger, vælg
    Generelt, vælg Konfiguration af Windows Media Center, og vælg derefter

    Run the Vista System File Checker Tool:

    1. Open a Command Window in Administrator mode:

    * right click on the Command Prompt option,
    * on the drop down menu which appears, click on the Run as Administratoroption.
    * If you haven’t disabled User Account Control (and you shouldn’t!) you will be asked for authorisation. Click the Continue button if you are the administrator or insert the administrator password.
    2. Start the System File Checker
    * In the Command Prompt window, type:sfc /scannow,
    * press Enter.

    The scan may take some time and windows will repair/replace any corrupt or missing files. You will be asked to insert your Vista DVD if it’s needed.

    Amazon will not refund my $89.40 and told me today to contact Microsoft with my complaint and a request for a refund. I have wasted a lot of time and money on this issue, and am bitterly disappointed with both Amazon and Microsoft. Microsoft should caution
    buyers of Windows 8 Pro that it no longer includes a version of Windows Media Center that allows burning a slideshow to a DVD. And Microsoft should train support engineers like you to not give misleading information about this issue. And I don't think Amazon
    should sell such a misleading product.

    DB:2.98:Media Center 3z


    is there a compatible media center for windows 8.1 update

    DB:2.98:Media Center 3z

    Hello KimBalderas,

    Windows Media Center is available in Windows 8.1. (It is not available in the basic Windows 8.1 You need a minimum of Windows 8.1 Pro)The only problem is you need to buy (unless you already have purchased) a new product key to update to Windows 8.1 with
    Media Center.

    To purchase a new key (around £6.99 (UK))

    1. Open Control Panel
    2. Click on the System icon
    3. Under the Windows section of the System Window you should see a link marked 'Get more features with a new edition of windows.' Click on this.
    4. A message will appear saying 'Add features to Windows 8.' Simple click the Yes button.
    6. A new window will now appear.
    7. If you want to buy a new key, click the 'I want to buy a product key online,' link. If you already have a product key (this incidentally is not the key for your windows operating system but a completely new one) then click on the 'I already have a product
    key'.
    8 When you click on the 'I want to buy a product key online' option another window will appear. This will tell you the price of the key in your currency. To obtain the key, press Choose.
    9. Fill in the billing address details and continue the purchase process. You will then receive an email with a new product key.
    10. When you get the product key follow the above instructions again up to step 7. However at this stage you select the 'I already have a product key.'
    11. When you click on the 'I already have a product key,' option a new window will appear with a box for you to type in your product key. Once you have typed in your product key and pressed the Next button the Windows Media Center will install. You may have
    to restart your PC to finalise installation.

    If you don't want Windows Media Center another alternative is a third party application called VLC
    http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.htmlMany people recommend this application. However, I have not personally used it, so cannot confirm how useful it will be.

    Hello, m06

    To clarify, were you looking in the Extras library that’s listed in the Extras section of the main menu, or from within the Start Menu section in the settings?

    If from the main menu, instead, go to Tasks, Settings, Start Menu and Extras, then click Extras Library and check if Burn CD/DVD is available.

    Try creating a new user account and check if the option is available or not. If it is, you have a corrupt profile:

    Additionally, try an system file scan to verify system integrity by going to Start, All Programs, Accessories, right click Command Prompt and choose Run as Administrator. In the Command Prompt, type the following command and press enter:

    igenom alternativen för anpassad konfiguration för att ge dig en bättre uppfattning om vad du kan göra med Media Center.

    1. Med en Media Center-fjärrkontroll, tryck på den gröna Startknappen.
    2. Första gången du startar Media Center väljer du Fortsätt på konfigurationssidan och sedan Anpassad.
    3. När du kommer till sidan Få ut det mest av Windows Media Center, välj Ja för att tillåta Media Center att hämta albumomslag, dvd-omslag, aktuella programtablåer, information från onlinemedietjänster och annan nyttig information.

    (like Internet) when I click on the icon andI can't access anything. It brings me to Media Center extras. I've tried Recovery but to no avail. Any suggestions? My computer is only 8 months old.

    DB:2.92:Media Center Seems To Be Running Desktop. mk

    Hi,

    As I understand, you are unable to run / access programs on the computer due to interference with a third party software, which was installed during a game setup on the computer. Is this correct?

    Not to worry! It’s common for game manufacturers to include links to promote software and trick you in to installing the software, and also if you downloaded the game from a third-party website.

    Please follow the links mentioned below to help troubleshoot the issue.

    Method 1

    Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully.
    For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft
    Knowledge Base:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/Back-up-the-registry

    When you run an .exe file on a Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7-based computer, the file may start a different program

    Method 2

    Uninstall all unused and unwanted programs / tool bars from control panel. (Preferably the program causing the issue)

    Uninstall or change a program

    Note: Once done you should check C:\Windows\Programs files for any remaining files or folders from the uninstalled software.

    Method 3

    If you are still facing issues then please try to restore the computer to a date prior to the install of the game.

    Restore system files and settings

    If you ever plan to reinstall the game refer to,

    Compatibility
    report for Microsoft Viva Pinata

    Make older programs run in this version of Windows

    Also include details like exact error message / progress while installing and Game installed source,etc and more information for a better understanding of the issue. Along with he operating system version installed on the computer.

    additional link,

    Hi:

    Open MCE, click on SettingsPictures. Make sure that there is a checkmark next to "Show Pictures in subfolders". Click "save".

    If this does not correct the problem, then close MCE, and navigate with Explorer to the folders with your jpeg images. Right-click on a jpeg, point to "Open with..." and select Media Center.

    This is on a fresh install of Windows 7 ultimate. I have the Media Center gadget on my desktop. It cycles through the different onlineprogramsavailable without issue. I click on a program I want to watch and a side box opens up with apic. of
    the program I want to watch. Once I click on that, the Media center loads and opens up. After that nothing, the program I selected in the gadget does not start or even seem to load. The media center just shows the assortedmenus, i.e. Extras, Pictures
    + Videos, etc.
    I have checked under settings, and Automatic Download Options is checked. In the media center setup, I ran the Set up internet connection and it passed with no issues.
    The Media Center log does not generate any data for when I attempt to start a event via the gadget. The only errors it shows are from when I sellect the "Download Now" option from the Automatic Download Options area. That error is:
    "7:25:58 PM - Failed to retrieve SMTiles-2.cab (Error: HTTP status 404: The requested URL does not exist on the server. )"
    Right now, the gadget acts like nothing more than aover sizedicon to start the media center.

    Hi,

    I have just gotten a new Touch enabled PC, running Windows 8; super machine!

    I notice that it did not come with Windows Media Center and have seen that to get this feature, you have to purchase Windows 8 Pro.

    While this is a way to get Media Center, I a really do not see any use of the rest of the Pro extras for my personal applications -- so I have to ask a question.

    Is there a way to just get Media Center for Windows 8 without purchasing Windows 8 Pro? Are there near-term plans to offer Media Center separately, either free or for a nominal charge?

    DB:2.85:Media Center Not Opening Properly x8


    Media Center was working properly until recently. Now, when I open it, the only thing that shows up is Extras. I can work around the problem by right clicking on the shortcut on the taskbar and then choose where I want to go such as live TV, schedule etc.
    However this is time consuming. I would just like to have all the options show up when I start the program instead of just Extras.
    Thank you.

    DB:2.85:Windows Media Center Tv Channels Are Showing Both Draco And Atsc As The Source 7m


    Hello,
    I use both a Draco and ATSC tuners with Windows Media Center, I manually configured them and now my channels are mixed up, I see both Draco and ATSC as the source for some channels. How do I straighten them out?

    Thanks

    Christi

    DB:2.85:Windows Media Center Tv Channels Are Showing Both Draco And Atsc As The Source 7m

    Hello Christi,

    This issue happens because of Guide mixing problems during the configuration process. When manual configuration is used, you can get in a situation where Digital Antenna (ATSC) channels are actually tuning to Draco instead of using the ATSC tuner.
    This issue does not occur if you use automatic configuration for setting up the channels.

    You can resolve this issue by editing the source of the individual channels and removing the Draco sources simply by unchecking the box beside those listings to remove them. You can also follow the instructions on Edit Sources screen to take other
    actions like reordering sources, remove a source and create a separate channel using split to correct the issue.

    DB:2.85:Windows Media Center Stopped Working mm



    After eight months of problem free computing, my HP Pavillion developed a glitch. When I open Windows Media Center, all I get is the Extras button, no live TV, recorded TV, internet TV or anything else. I do have some recorded TV shows that will play in HP's media player if I open them , but nothing but Extras when I open WMC. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Also remember that Norton's spyware scanner is not very good. You might want to try malwarebytes.org software.

    If you do not find any malware, then I would follow Dave's suggestion to use the restore point.

    Videos not showing on xbox 360 extender, but on media center pc.
    Videos show as a slide instead of video. I can preview the videos, but not watch them on the xbox.

    DB:2.85:Media Center Xbox 360 Extender dm

    Hi Chris,

    What is the file format of the movie that you’re trying to watch in Xbox? Was your Xbox 360 able to show your videos earlier?

    If it is the first time that you’re trying to watch videos, then I would suggest you to convert the files to *.avi or *.wmv and check if you’re able to watch videos.

    You can also try the following link to see if it helps you in resolving the issue.

    DB:2.85:Windows Media Center Uk Und Deutsche Sender m7


    Hallo,
    ich habe in England Windows 7 gekauft und auf meinem Notebook installiert, jetzt, wo ich wieder zurück bin, stelle ich fest, dass ich im Media Center keine Onlinemedien schauen kann, für die englischen hab ich keine Berechtigung, weil ich außerhalb von GB
    bin, die deutschen kann ich nicht installieren (weder unter Extras, noch im Internet eine Lösung gefunden).
    Hat irgendjemand eine Idee, wie ich die Einstellungen Andern kann? Mit den Regionaleinstellungen in Windows habe ich es schon, erfolglos, probiert.
    danke für eure Ideen

    DB:2.85:Windows Media Center Uk Und Deutsche Sender m7

    Ich gehe mal davon aus, dass es keine Ultimate Version ist - dort gäbe es die passenden Sprachpakete.
    Lade dir das ISO Image einer deutschen Windows Version von Digital River, die Links wurden öfter hier im Forum genannt. Damit installierst du das Notebook neu.

    cu, Ingo
