  • Question

  • I recently purchased NVIDIA dvd decoder program, and now, when I try to set up my internet connection for media center, I get the above message. And, the computer is not finding the remote sensor. Is there a way to fix this?

  • Hi,

    This seems to be a codec issue. Chances are the NVIDIA DVD decoder software has manipulated or changed a codec in Media Center which is causing an incompatibility.

    You may be able to resolve this issue by simply re-installing media center and it will overwrite the problematic codec with the correct native one.



    If you find my information useful, please rate it. :-)
