Windows 7: Media Center not recording

01 Jul 2011   #1

Windows 7 64 bit Premium
Media Center not recording

I have added the library for recorded tv and verified that the scheduler service is running. When I select a show for recording, it seems to accept it and shows the red dot in the guide, but when the show time begins - it doesn't record

very strange - any ideas on how to debug?

Record worked before the recording drive failed and had to be replaced.

Hi itauditor,

The following link may give you some insight into why this happened.
Why didn't my TV show record in Windows Media Center?

I also found two people with similar problems on Microsoft answers. Try the fixes reccomended in the solutions.
Windows media centre not recording TV show - Microsoft Answers
Windows 7 Media Center Not Recording Shows - Microsoft Answers

That reminds me, was there an error code?

Hope this helps,

no error code was presented by Media Center.

I looked at these links and verified everything. The guide is current, no conflicts, the channel was active, etc. Still nothing.

Sorry, but I can't find much else. If there's no error code, it's unfortunately a lot harder to diagnose the problem. All I can do at the moment (until I find a fix), is direct you to Microsoft Support.
Microsoft Support
Down the bottom of the page there should be an E-mail and Phone option. They should be able to help you out.

Once again, I apologise...
