Windows 7: Media Center Problems

Media Center Problems

When I start media center I only see Extras and Extras Gallery. I don't see the icons for movies, tuner or other items that were working yesterday. What did media center do to loose my cable tv signal? How do I restore my media center settings?

This might be a stupid question, but have you tried to scroll up or down with mouse wheel, WMC remote or up/down arrow keys?

Because Extras is the top most menu option it sometimes looks like it is the only menu choice you have, even there is full list of menu items beneath it. You can see the list when scrolling up or down.

Don't worry, it happens to all of us. Good to know it was so simple.
