Windows 7: Media Center update question

Media Center update question

Hi All,
My media center is working fine. Seems at least once a day it is downloading updates for the local TV lsiting or something.

My question... Can I look inside Media Center to see when the last download was and what did it update? If it exists where.

Thanks in advance.

What information appears in event logs (Event Viewer)?

I created a custom view using 'McUpdate' as the Event Source.

In the Event logs pull down menu select everything.

once you have this properly saved you can return to it to see all McUpdate events.

Thanks AngelProcesser
I have used the event viewer to check my startup for errors but I just looked and I just clicked on Media Center and there it was.
It seems because I recoved my HD from an image that was a few days old Media Center was trying to update but my wife would turn off the computer not knowing it was trying to downlaod the update.
Everything is great and updated properly.
