everything was great. then last night for no reason windows7 decided to bsod, and then fail to start again.
I have a brand new harddrive, so i dont think it was hard drive related, and unfortunatley i cant remeber the bsod. but it failed to start again, and did a "repair startup files" which i let it do, and hten it started fine.
but ever since that time, i cannot watch livetv on windows media center which is VERY ANNOYING.
i tried to set up the tuner again, but when i go into the tv setup it says "windows livetv setup has encountered a serious error blah blah unhelpful crap"
so after trying over and over i just cant get it to work. its not drivers, or hardware, (ive reinstalld the drivers several times) wintv works fine, and mediaportal works too, although its not really good enough under windows7 (64) its just a bit flakey and cumbersome.
so does anyone have anyidea how i can restore windows media center to a state where it will attempt to detect my tuner, find it, and let me tune in stuff etc? i suspect becuase it crashed mid viewing it did something bad to itself but i have no clue how to fix it, and no clue how to "reinstall" it if thats even possible. and i REALLY dont want to have to reinstall just to get back to the same situation again 3 months down the track.
any ideas anyone? anything, nomatter how stupid, will be appreciated, as im at my wits end here.
