Hi All,

I'm having a wierd problem with windows 7 media center and freeview HD.

The problem is as follows:

When I record a TV show while watching a previously recorded TV program OR while listening to music (through 7MC) then the TV recording has no audio.


While listening to music I decide that I want to record something on live TV, so I go into the guide and record it. Now when I go to play the recording it has no audio.

If I do the same without listening to music (or watching a previously recorded program) then it works fine and I have audio on the recording.

HOWEVER, If I'm not listening (or watching anything) and decide I want to record something on live tv (and I record it) and during the recording I decide to listen to music (or watch a previously recored tv program) then there are no problems.

I have tried with and without the shark007 w7 codec pack which hasn't helped.

Does anyone have any ideas ?


PS: My system:
W7 RC 32bit
dfi sli-dr nforce4 motherboard
nvidia 9500gt
2GB ram
3500+ 64bit amd
Asus U3100 mini dvb-t tuner (usb)

wow that is just bizarre. About the only think I can think of is make sure that all the drivers you are using are the latest available. It may be something funky with the RC and your hardware...

Fixed this by installing Windows 7 Professional

There must have been something quirky with the RC/my install of it.
