I have Freeview Satellite set up with Windows 7 Media Center and it's worked great for a long time until now.
A few days ago it suddenly stopped recording my scheduled shows, and hasn't been able to since. Live TV still works normally, and I don't get any error message - it simply keeps saying "This program will be recorded" but the recording never starts.
I have tried clearing the recording schedule and setting the recordings again, with no luck. My external storage drive has plenty of space left, and MC is still set to use it for recording.
I have not yet tried setting up the TV signal again, and am hesitant to do so, since it took me a long time to properly arrange the channels and set up logos in the Guide. And I doubt that would help anyway as live TV still works fine.
I have also noticed that MC has stopped showing the thumbnails for my previously recorded shows, although I can still play them fine. This seems to be related somehow as it happened about the same time as the recording problem.
Please help someone!!! There's many things I want to record over the weekend!!!
