PlayReady update do not work

I have tried all possible solutions suggested to get the Play Ready to update but they all fail - any further suggestions?
I am not able to see any satellite or DVT channels for the moment.
Any help?

Ya I am very disappointed with Windows Media Center not updating the guide properly and my HD channels are going away and one is another which is not right but I used the WinTV software v7 that came with the card and it sees all the HD channels and plays then no problem.

playready will brake with almost any hardware changes forcing you to reinstall windows.

I add 8 more gigs of memory to my computer and it broke playready.
I used a work around to fix it without having to reinstall windows.

You cannot play a Windows Media DRM protected file or a Zune DRM protected file on a computer that is preconfigured with Windows 7

a. Uninstall PlayReady from the 'Programs and Features' Refer: Uninstall or change a program

b. Turn off Windows Media Center. See: Turn Windows features on or off

c. Enable the explorer to show hidden files and folders. Read: Show hidden files.

d. Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\ and delete eHome and PlayReady folders.

e. Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DRM and delete all files and folders underneath (don't delete the DRM directory itself)

f. Open the registry with elevated privileges. To do so, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt and then point to “Run as administrator”. In the command prompt that opens, type regedit.exe.

g. Go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft and delete the DRM key.

h. Restart the computer.

i. Reinstall Windows Media Player from “Programs and Features”. Refer: Turn Windows features on or off. This should also regenerate the DRM keys for your machine.

j. Run Windows Media Center setup. See: Getting started with Windows Media Center

k. Run the PlayReady install from inside Media Center. See: Set up a TV signal in Windows Media Center

That should be it.
