You may need to download flash player from Adobe (here Adobe - Adobe Flash Player) if you haven't already as some internet TV providers run flash (just like youtube) to play videos.

Hope this helps

Have you tried downloading the latest codecs? I know it's direct TV but it couldn't help to
try from - Windows 7 Codecs to see if they help.

If not then i'm gonna have to concede to defeat

Hopefully someone may be reading this that can help

Hey andersok29, did this fix your issue ?

I'm getting the same issue with a fresh install of Windows 7 RC1. Other videos/movies/TV in MCE work fine, but just not InternetTV. I get sound but a blank screen.

Any help would be appreciated.
