Windows 7: Video Error in WMC

Video Error in WMC

Hey guys,

Just installed 7 on an older machine, and it is running great but something is wrong with WMC video playback. I also have a TV tuner card, and am able to watch live TV with WinTv7, and able to watch videos in it as well as WMP. But when I try to watch Live TV, or Videos in WMC 7 I get the following error:

" VIDEO ERROR - Files needed to display video are not installed or not working correctly. Please restart Media Center and/or restart the computer.

Any suggestions?

If you have a WMC supported TV Tuner it is not necesary and in fact one should not install the Win TV application and drivers...uninstall WinTV7 using the utility on the website, reboot, and then allow W7 to install drivers for W7 for your TV Tuner, then run the full WMC setup again.

Video hardware error -- but independent of video card
Hello, Last Christmas, I tried to build a PC for my parents. It almost worked, except that every once in a while, the screen would freeze and the display would go all monochromatic, leaving no choice except to push the reset button. This happened with at least half a dozen different video card...
