I am talking essentially of record and tv guide shortcut, at left of the stop button.
It is the second time that it happens.
The first time I read that it could be solved through Windows features. So I turned it off and hell broke loose. I had to do a complete reinstall. I won't try this again.
So I have a complete new installation, but the buttons seem to have disappeared after tens windows updates that I applied.
I wonder if it is something wanted after this one was executed; October 2010 Cumulative Update for Windows Media Center in Windows 7
I just real;ized that when it is in full screen the buttons are back.... normal behaviour?
