    Hi There,
    I have suddenly started seeing 3 seperate yet seemingly related Vista
    Ultimate x64 Media Centre issues.
    I spent ages researching app, hardware and driver compatibility and have had
    a flawless system since february. But as of this afternoon:

    1. When I go to the recorded TV , it doesn't populate all (most but not
    all) thumbnails and shortly after brings up an 'windows media process has
    failed' error. After that some of the tv without thumbnails dissapear from
    the recorded TV view.

    2. Trying to play one of the clips without a thumbnail results in a 'Disk
    error - A temporary problem has occured' blue screen.

    3. trying to go back or otherwise nagivate tends to make Media centre quit,
    but not crash.

    I've searched and search and can tell you this to help:
    1. I'm not running 3rd party internet security and never had - only window
    firewall and defender (yes, in know i should be running something but i'm
    not).
    2. Although my recorded TV disks are quite full, they have been fuller with
    no issues.
    3. I have run scan disk and sfc on all possible drives
    4. All the TV causing problems are viewable and playable in Explorer and
    Media player. Indeed rightClick - 'play with media centre' works no problem
    and often makes MC work with that clip.
    5. the machine is fully patched and with latest drivers
    6. Hauppauge Nova-T-500 TV card, NVidia 7200 graphics 4GB RAM, Athlon +5000

    Any suggestions would be appriciated, as what was a flawless system is
    almost unusable!
