    My MCE was working GREAT, until i installed Rollup 2, then it said files are
    missing, so i tried to reconfigure from the beginning of MCE settings. Well,
    I keep getting an error 3; and can't watch TV nor see my recorded files. Any
    ideas? I tried to restore to yesterday and XP says it can't do it? It is an
    HP m300y with ACUS mother board and tuner. And yes I reinstalled the MCE
    2005 update tuner.

    I am really puzzled.

    If you have a NVIDIA graphics cared NVIDIA has released new MCE drivers
    77.79 that incorporate updates to support Rollup2 however this release does
    not support older NVIDIA cards that are not on the WHQL. Also there is no
    description as to why they had to release a Rollup2 update so it is unknown
    when this update is required.

    I have the same problem. Error 3... I have two decoders and both are
    compatible. Some of the things seem to work just not live tv or guide..

    Hopefully I will find out whats up soon.

  6. There is an additional update for Rollup 2, that affects some users.

    It doesn't state that it specifically addresses your particular problem though.

    Good try but after installing 77.79, and rebooting. I double checked Device
    manager for version of vidoe driver and same issues with MCE

    Still Puzzled.

    If you goto your Control Panel, administrative Tools, Services

    When you scroll down the list of services, do you see Media Center Receiver
    Service and Media Center Scheduler Service listed? I would guess no.

    I had this problem before, due to an incorrect installation of MCE2005....
    only way to reliably fix it was to reinstall MCE2005 from scratch.

    I guess that makes the cause of your issue different from mine...

    At least there's some hope then.

  12. Can you remove and reinstall your DVD decoder?
