Media Center in RC2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just installed Vista RC2 build 5744, and the main problem I had when I ran RC1 was that Media Center wouldn't run, now i didnt play with it for long, but now ive installed RC2 it still wont run.

    It opens in the taskbar and then just makes the screen flicker twice, and then stops doing anything.

     

    Is this a known problem, or is it just me?

  • It might be your drivers....what TV Tuner card are you running?  Have installed the updates for it?  Have you checked your device manager to see if it there are any uninstalled media drivers?

  • Not it wont keep it from running, but I know that when I was having driver issues with my tuner card MCE took forever to startup.
