NEW media center solutions all versions

I am new here--I have what I view as important information for you.

I have worked w/ techs from all over the world to generate these REAL solutions--they might not solve ALL of your problems but WILL solve some.

BEFORE you do anything--verify the correct computer time & time zone. In ALL cases if time or time zone was incorrect--re-install media center.

Media center fails to recognize your set-top box or remote.

After attempting a manual set-up w/ all possible codes & failure--exchange your set-top box w/ cable company for a different model as media center does not have all the codes within it--if not--borrow one--you will see

Verify the correct computer time and time zone

Media center fails to recocnize your IR cable sensor

Unplug & re_plug the cable. Relocate the IR sensor over the IR receiver on set-top box---use a bright flashlight to locate the sensor

Media center fails to download the correct channel guide

Verify the computer time & time zone. Re-install media center. Verify w/ cable company that you are slecting the correct guide download for your location. Verify w/ your cable company which guide you are viewing on your TV by having them tell you on the phone what program you are & should be viewing--careful--they make mistakes. Try reinstalling media center & selecting a different guide than you think is correct.

Media center fails to switch channels automatically to record TV on different channels

Verify the correct computer time & time zone then re-install media center

Media center channel guide download options

Essentially, there are no options--automatic or manual--you cannot change what you selected in the set-up w/ out starting the set-up fresh

Re-set media center guide download to different guide

1st--verify computer clock is set to correct time zone & time--completely re-install media center
This is NOT possible--the ONLY way to accomplish this is to re-install or reset media center--go to settings, tv & start from scratch

1st--verify computer clock is set to correct time zone & time--completely re-install media center
This is NOT possible--the ONLY way to accomplish this is to re-install or reset media center--go to settings, tv & start from scratch

I just asked WHO you were talking to above, since all three post were from you.

Comments like that aren't necessary, if you have the time to write out posts like you did above, why can't you explain further?

What does your original post fix? Explaining that might get you the feedback you are seeking.

A general run of the problems and fixes as enunciated by you - whether these will resolve the problem or not - is going to be lost in the wilderness in the sense no one who has read your post is likely to recall and refer to it as if it were a bible on Media Center problems.

The best course open to you will be to suggest any fixes as and when users come out with the problems.

You may then refer them to your above post if you think that may resolve the problem.

A comment like "You do not understand how the media center works" is certainly despicable. ( I do not become small if i do not understand how media center works. Neither do I become God Almighty if I know 100% how it works.)
