    Hello,

    I have a TouchSmart 610 which I recently upgraded to Windows 8.1 Enterprise. Is there a third party TV tuner app that I can use that will interface with the AverMedia card since I cannot run Media Center on Enterprise?

    Recently bought HP Touchsmart. Configured Cable Set Top Box in Live TV in Windows Media Center

    System is Vista Home Premium 64-bit. Also installed SP 2.

    Tuner was configured OK and I can watch Live TV. However after few minutes of watching I get the popup "Windows Media Center" has stopped working and the WMC closes.
    This ALSO happens if I just change the channels.

    PC is brand new(a month old now) I can watch DVD, Netflix fine in WMC. Trouble is with Live TV. Help !

    DB:3.36:Windows Media Center Has Stopped Working When Watching Live Tv zk

    Hi Sa Chin,

    Welcome to Microsoft Answers Forums.

    This problem may also occur if the Windows Media Center update process (Mcupdate.exe) cannot access the Windows Media Center data store. You may experience this problem if the data store is damaged. Therefore, try to rebuild the Media Center
    data store. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Exit any running instance of Windows Media Center.
    2. Delete the mediaCenterDataStore.db file. By default, this file is in the following location:

    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\ProgramData\Microsoft\eHome\mediaCenterDataStore.db
    To delete the file, follow these steps:
    a. Click Start, and then click Run.
    b. In the Open box, type run, and then click OK.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.

    c. In the Open box, type %systemdrive%\programdata\microsoft\ehome , and then click OK.

    d. In the details pane, right-click mediacenterdatastore.db , and then click Delete .

    e. Click Yes to confirm that you want to move the Mediacenterdatastore.db file to the recycle Bin.

    3. Start Windows Media Center and check if it works.

    To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Perform clean boot and check if you have the issue.

    1. Click Start, type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
    User Account Control permission
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
    2. On the General tab, click Selective Startup.
    3. Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box.
    4. Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All.
    5. Click OK.
    6. When you are prompted, click Restart.
    7. After the computer starts, check whether the problem is resolved.

    If the issue is resolved check which third party is causing the problem, referring the link given below:

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Reset the computer to start as usual
    After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:
    Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
    On the General tab, click the Normal Startup option, and then click OK.
    When you are prompted to restart the computer, click Restart.

    Hope this information is helpful.
    Let me know if this worked.

    All the best!

    DB:3.16:Media Disconnection For Windows 8.1 On A Hp Touchsmart m7

    Hi Melissa,

    I would like to inform you that this message usually shows up if you are using a LAN connection instead of wireless, so if you are not connected to a wireless network, it will say media disconnected.

    I would suggest you to run the following commands in the administrator command prompt and check.

    Method 1: Release and renew IP address for your computer.

    a. Press “Windows Key + Q” to open Charms Bar.
    b. Type “cmd” without quotes in the search box.
    c. On the left pane, right click on the “cmd” option and select “Run as Administrator”.
    Type the following commands and hit enter after each command:

    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig

    d. Type Exit and hit Enter.

    Method 2: Reset TCP/IP and check if it helps.

    At the command prompt, type the following command and then press ENTER:

    netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
    Note: If you do not want to specify a directory path for the log file, use the following command:

    netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

    Reboot the computer and check the issue.

    You can also refer to the following Microsoft article for more information.

    Why can't I connect to the Internet?

    If the issue persists, you may need to get in touch the Internet Service Provider for further assistance.

    when i got this machine i was under the impression that it upscaled DVDs .. only i have tried a DVD in Windows 7 .. Touchsmart and Media Centre and it doesnt look upscaled in any .. how do i know if it is upscaled .. ?

    DB:3.13:Touchsmart 600-1040uk Upscale Dvds .. ? cp


    Upscaled is a loose marketing term for resizing the image from DVD movie resolution of 720x480 to anything higher - usually 1080. Upscaling is nothing more than algorithms that resize the image to fit more data (pixels) on the "bigger" screen. Some algs combos are better than other. Most of the better ones will do some kind of a bilinear resample followed by warp sharp and motion filters.. this produces an image that looks closer to BluRay. Those that do not do that good of a job, simply resize the data leaving lines a little more blurry.

    Defender is spyware protection only.

    Do yourself a huge favor, and dump Norton now, before it is too late. Microsoft Security Essentials (MSE) is free, and offers excellent anti-malware protection.

    Uninstall Norton with the removal tool in this thread:

    Then, restart your PC.

    Then, install MSE from
    www.microsoft.com/security_essentials

    On Windows 7, MSE should disable Defender. If not, you should disable it.

    No anti-malware product (free or paid), or combination of products, will provide 100% protection, 100% of the time.
    To get a perspective of where MSE stands in comparison to other anti-malware products, please review the latest reports found

    Hi there,

    I just purchased a brand new HP Touchsmart 610-1150f. The computer is pretty amazing, but I'm having problems with the WIFI connection.

    I have a wireless ATT DSL router, and it works great with my iPhone, iPad and WII console (which is in the living room). But with the Touchsmart (which is right beside the DSL router in my home office), every five minutes or so when I'm using the Internet, the connection drops and comes back again.

    I mean, the WIFI connection works great but gets interrupted quite often with the TouchSmart. Because this only happens with the TouchSmart, I'm assuming it's a computer related problem.

    I'm about to return the computer because of this. Any ideas on how to solve the problem?

    DB:3.04:Wifi Problem - Hp Touchsmart 610-1150f cd


    Spot on! For some reason, my ATT 2Wire modem wasn't communicating properly with the TouchSmart. I just couldn't simply think about that in the beginning because I've never had any similar problem with all devices connected to it - my iPhone, my wife's, my previous HP computer, an iPad and the WII console. Using the network cable directly wasn't solving the problem either.

    Many people believe it's a Windows 7 problem. If you type "Windows 7 drops wifi connection" on Google, you'll see several forum responses with people experiencing the exact same problem I had. It makes sense because with my previous HP, which has Windows XP, I never had that problem.

    Anyway, I bought a Motorola 2274-N8 wireless modem, which is actually less expensive than the ATT 2Wire, and the connection is working beautifully now! Not a single drop since I installed it!

    One additional question - One of the reasons I bought the TouchSmart is because I don't have to deal with a gazillion cables and wires. Does it make a substantial difference if Iconnect the modem with the yellow cable? I mean, I'm using the modem in wireless mode and the connection is already super fast and flawless.

    Thank you all for your help.

    That's not the video file format, that's the "file system" format on the SD card.

    You need to know what the TYPE OF FILE you can't play is. The manufacturer of the camera will have documents on what types of files it can create, these are options you would set inside the camera itself.

    If you copy just the video file to your computer you can try playing it in Windows Media Player.

    DB:2.98:When Burning Media On Hp Touchsmart, Receive Message Running Cd In Wrong Country In Windows 7 3m

    Hi,
    •Does it happen with all the disks?
    Step 1: Try changing the DVD drive region and check if it works.
    a. Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties.
    b. On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.
    c. In the list of devices, double-click DVD/CD-ROM drives, right-click the DVD drive for which you want to change region settings, and then click Properties.
    d. On the DVD Region tab, make the desired changes.
    Note: The DVD region changes can only be done 5 times.

    DB:2.96:Blu Ray: Smart Dvd Vs. Windows Media 1f



    My Touch Smart 600-1215xt, has a factory installed Blu Ray player. When I put in a Blu Ray disc (BD), Windows Media Player complains that I need to instsall a Codec. However, the HP Media Smart Player does eventually wakes up and plays the disc with no issue.

    So apparently an appropriate codec is installed, but Windows Media Player just cant see/access it.

    Question: Is there a trick to getting WMP to see the codec thats already installed on my system? Or, should I just continue to use the HP Media Smart Player which is part of the "HP TouchSmart Experience"?

    Thanks,

    -PH

    DB:2.96:Blu Ray: Smart Dvd Vs. Windows Media 1f


    Hi,

    Basically you are correct and will have to use Media Smart to play Blu Ray disks. Blu ray disks come with all sorts of copy and playback control systems so it's not just having a codec available, you need software which is licensed to run it ( so the manufacturer of the software has to pay for the license ) which is why you don't find free players for Blu Ray and why Windows Media Player won't play it either.

    You might speed up MediaSmart lauching the Blu Ray by setting it as the default player for this type of disk in your Default Program from Windows Control Panel.

    Hope this helps.

    Best wishes,

    Hello Curly2U:

    Did you connect the IR cables correctly ?http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Video-Solution​s/Products/Video-CPE/All-Digital-Set-Tops/DCX3501-​... Now I look up your cable box. Take the IR cable that is connected from p.c. IR out port and plug the other end directly into EXT IR IN port. Next to IEEE 1384 and Power Cord ports. I really do not see how a p.c. remote can control any thing but the computer because these remotes do not have a option to add codes to them like a universal remote does. They also do not have special butons to allow you to contol other devices such as tv's or stereos and cable boxes like a universal remote does. I checked our Help and Support and did not see anything about mentioning controlling other devices.

    You might want to by pass the cable box altogether and directly plug the cable antenna wire directly into the computer and see if it can tune in cable channels. You might not need the cable box after all. There are two antenna ports on your computer try switching the cable antenna arround. I found out one antenna port olnly picked up one channel and when I switched the cable cable arround I was able to pick up all the channels.

    I did download the update to HP media smart and then it wouldn't let be play Blu-rays so luckily I made a restore point and went back to that and now all is fine with that.

    My problem is that I can't get Blu-rays to play through windows media center To play this DVD, you must first install a playback application that supports Blu-rays. I thought that was what HP media smart was. How do I fix this???

    These are regular store bought Blu-rays that should work fine.

    Thanks

    Spent hours yesterday uploading Windows 7 over Vistato my brand new, unused IQ500.uk by means of the HP upgrade assistant and Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrade Media. I am not sure if I have upgraded correctly, however my computer informs I am now running Windows 7.

    1) Whether my own inefficiency or the instructions telling me to disconnect wired LAN but with no mention of wireless, my computer remained connected to the internet during the whole process. Will I have to reinstall? If so, how?

    2) I now get a message saying the touchsmart system is incompatible with the operating system. Can this be resolved? If so, how? If not, how do I return to Vista? Is it simply a matter of running my backed-up copy?

    I'm far from being expert on computers. Thanks for any help,

    i'm not sure about question 1 but for question 2, download touchsmart 3.+ from the www.hp.com/#Support Windows 7 x64 bit drivers page for your model PC. Make sure to install the HP TouchSmart Application Update first and then install the rest of the updates you find there for your model.

    Hello cheftaylor:

    My guess is your computer is out of time sink with website. Click 0n your clock. Change date and time settings Then click on Internet Time then click change settings you want this server [ time-nw.nist.gov] Click Update Now. Then click ok. Close out what ever Date and Time windows are still open. Now you should be able to log into Snap Fish. Also do this same procedure for NetFlex. You might also down load Fire Fox Internet Browserseeing Internet Explorer 9still has issues witch Microsoft still to this day have not corrected. Internet Explorer 9 use that just for surfing but when interacting with website use Fire Fox http://firefox.com-share.net/download.php?t202id=1​804c1=firefoxc2=firefoxt202kw=firefox%20downloa​....

    Save your self from downgrading Internet Explorer 9to Internet Explorer 8. You can also down load Sarfari as well http://www.apple.com/safari/but with this down load it will run an update and down load Quick Time Player and Itunes.

    As far as signing into Snap Fish you my have to make a new account now that you can connect. I recieved simlar error as you have but they were from Media Center and Netflex. I hope my suggestions works for you as well. Please let us know. Thanks frrw.

    i upgraded to win 7 home premium 32 bit from vista home premium on a touchsmart iq771.uk. Largely went ok except for a couple of issues on drivers (audio and video related).

    Trying to update drivers via HP support I find no windows 7 drivers for this touchsmart model. Why not? I managed (or rather Win 7 managed to resolve the audio issue but still needing a fix on the video). The driver which windows update keeps trying and failing to update is:

    ASUSTek - Streaming Media and Broadcast - ASUSTeK LNA Tiger Hybrid Capture Device

    Also why is my touchsmart software no longer compatible with my touchsmart and why can't I use touchsmart 3.0 on my machine with windows 7. What is the point of a touchsmart if it can't run HP touchsmart software????!!!!!

    I keep reading Win 7 is just Vista done properly. But obviously not if you have a HP Touchsmart

    Since the program was not able to successfully install in compatibility mode, I recommend re-installing your Windows 8.1 OS on your computer. To do this, please follow this document on How to perform a clean installation of Windows.

    If the issue persists, I recommend following this resource onObtaining HP Recovery Discs or an HP USB Recovery Drive; which will help re-install the licensed version of Windows that came with your computer. After the original OS is re-installed, you can install of your important windows updates as well as Windows 8.1.

    After these steps are completed, please follow the steps above to install your program in compatibility mode.

    Please re-post with the results of your troubleshooting, and I look forward to your reply!Regards

    I have a Touchsmart 520-1047c, with Intel I-5 and Windows 7 Pro.

    I installed an SSD shortly after buying the machine. Everything worked okay, with the exception of random freezes of the computer. These would come right after a cold start, or after the machine had been on for days. It would occur when I was working on the machine, or when it was sitting idle.

    I lived with this behavior for some time because I like the speed and quiet of SSD's. I have them in three other computers (1 desktop, 2 laptops) and they have never had this kind of problem.

    The Touchsmart had a 180 GB SSD, and the desktop had a 240 GB SSD, same brand and model. After months of no issues with the 240 GB, I swapped it into the Touchsmart, and got another brand SSD for the desktop.

    Performance got marginally better, but I was still plagued with freezes. The desktop was always on, 24/7, so I took to leaving the Touchsmart on also. I maybe had fewer instances of freezing, but they still happened.

    The new brand SSD in the desktop seemed to be working flawlessly, so I just got the identical model for the Touchsmart. After 24 hours constant on, there were no freezes. Then, yesterday I had a dozen freezes is a very short time. Some occured actually during restarts and warm boots.

    Is there something about the BIOS on the Touchsmart that is different than that on the desktop (also an HP) that just does not get along with SSD's? I have not done the BIOS update for the machine that was issued last fall, but nothing in the description indicates it has anything to do with my problem.

    I am getting near my wit's end and will tonight switch back to the original HDD that came with the machine.

    DB:2.84:Touchsmart Freezes With Ssd x3


    That fact "a symptom of the freeze is that the HDD activity light will be on solid (no flicker)." is what I saw while reading up on this problem. It seems this particular symptom is what happens with SSD's. That is why I suggested installing the original HDD to rule out another hardware problem. It has to do with the way the controller handles the interface with the drive. Some of the forums reported a new firmware for the SSD drive helped. Google the "SSD freeze problem" to find others with similar problems.

    DB:2.82:Hp Pavilion Touchsmart 15 Sleekbook - Windows Media Player Automatically Popping Up px



    I want to use (WMP) Windows Media Player as my default music player. Every time i open a song from the file explorer WMP pops-up on top and it gets annoying, because i have to keep minimizing it or keep going back to the taskbar to switch back. So, I want to know how to play music with WMP staying in the background or for it to stay in the taskbar. Thanks.

    Hi JoelRuano,

    Welcome to the HP Forums!

    I would like to take a moment and thank you for using the forum, it is a great place to find answers. For you to have the best experience in the HP forum, I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide First Time Here? Learn How to Post and More.

    I understant that you want the Windows Media Player to be your default but everytime you open a song it pops up on top and is very annoying. You have to keep minimizing or going back to the task bar. You would like it to run in the background.

    Try this, as I believe it will help.

    Open Windows Media Player

    On a blank space on the top bar ( to the right of music) rigth click

    Choose tools

    Click Options

    Click the Players tab

    Uncheck "Keep Now Playing on top of other Windows"

    When I tested it on two machines here, it always pops up but stays in the taskbar once minimized.

    I do not see any option to keep it in the background.

    I hope this helps.

    DB:2.81:Windows Media Center For Vista p9


    I was trying to find out if there is a way to get SUBTITLE for the freeview tv with this software.

    DB:2.81:Windows Media Center For Vista p9


    Yes... if by freeview you mean your local over-the-air broadcasting. By default, Windows Media Center displays subtitles when the broadcaster provides the data.

    I have an IQ506 and an IQ816 using digital OTA through rabbit ear antennas and I get the subtitles whenever the PC audio is muted. The subtitles come in about 3 - 5 seconds after I mute.

    DB:2.81:Brand New Hp Touchsmart With Windows 7 Media Center And Built In Tv Tuner Wont Set Up Correctly pk


    Brand new HP Touchsmart with Windows 7 media center and tv tuner built in. Cannot get the guide or the channels correct. Have a direct cable connection, no set top box. Broadcasts by cable are all digital. Setup says found 28 digital and analog channels,but
    lists only 7. Those 7 are listed incorrectly. For instance guide said Tonight show was on at 8:00. It was actually on at 11:30 as usual. All times and programs are also wrong.

    Spent 4 hours with HP tech who tried everything remotely that I had tried and retried. Then he and cable co. tech and I had 3 way conversation w/cable co. saying they have nothing to do w/the problem, everything else coming into the house from cable is
    fine. Finally the HP tech said it needed to be fixed by MSN since they designed the program. He said he would transfer call (after 4 hours of unsuccessful actions) to MSN and 11:15 p.m. last night. The call dropped and here I am w/very expensive computer
    and can't find help.

    Have rerun the setup at least a dozen times, including letting the tech do it remotely.

    My prev. computer had a tuner and media center with XP same cable set up and it was perfect.

    Yes, the problem was with the time zone. That is working now, but there are several other items that are not working and hp wants me to ship the pc back to fix it (even though I have 2 yr warranty with in home repair, if their remote tech cannot solve
    problems.) Thus, I'd be without a pc for about a month.
