Windows 7 Media Center Live TV issue...


Recommended Posts

Hauppauge! WinTV-HVR-1600, Windows 7 RC and Media Center is giving me hard time.

First it got stuck trying to download TV guide info, did a little searching and found out mcupdate.exe had to be working. I ended up creating a link on my desktop to "C:\Windows\ehome\mcupdate.exe -manual -nogc -p" and once the guide download started, clicked on it and it worked perfectly. From there MC examines my TV signals, but unfortunately another brick wall has arisen, I can freely setup my tuner as normal, everything is fine but just before the tuner scans the channels I get hit with this error...

"TV Setup Cannot Continue : TV Setup has encountered a serious problem. Select finish to exit, then try again. If the problem persists, restart Windows Media Center or your computer. : PRERELEASE Exception: Element not found. (Exception from HRESULT 0x80070490)"


My Hauppauge HVR 1600 Tuner is working fine, I can use WinTV app within Windows 7, but for some reason it wont work in 7MC? I know others can get TV working in 7MC but for some reason I can't anyone have any suggestions or steps which I may have forgotten? Any help? Thanks guys.

Honestly, I'm not sure. I've never set up Premium or Ultimate (beta, RC, or now RTM) and seen the guide not work, letalone the tuner. Assuming you didn't vLite this install, I honestly don't know. Can you reproduce this with RTM?
