    I am running Windows XP Media Center 2004 on an HP zd7000. All of a sudden I
    am having problems with
    the Media Center. When I start media center and click on my tv, I get an
    error that says "
    ehRec.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close."

    Sometimes the picture will start, and if it does it plays live TV for about
    10 second then stops with a message "Play to continue" I click play and the
    TV plays the same 10 second content then stops again.

    Then I get the following message
    "Media Center Host Module has encountered a problem and needs to close".

    Additionally, I can no longer download the guide.

    I have tried system restore and can't access any restore points older than 3
    days ago, including the original. I have tried booting from the
    installation disk and doing a restore on the original files. Nothing works.

    I would love to reinstall just the media center portion of the OS, but all
    indications are that I have to wipe the machine, just to get the TV working.
    Any ideas? Please? Please, please, please?
