I have a 3.0 p4, 1gb ram, 120 gig sata, hauppauge 500mce tuner, ati radeo 9600 pro 256mb ddr and chaintech a710 sound card set up to run 5.1. Upon configuration, I received an error about my video card not be compatible with mce and I upgraded the drivers to the catalys drivers for mce and that went away. Also this error appears every now and then. Titled: MSVidCtl System Broadcast Message Receiver: ehRecvr.exe - Application Error. The instruction at "0xdbda5200" referenced memory at "0xdbda5200". The memory could not be read. Anyone know what this means. I am getting my signal from a directv dvr that has 2 tuners built it, I am running the coax out to the hauppauge, from there the signal gets passed thru to the ati which sends the signal to the tv via s-video. The chaintech a710 connect to the amp via optical connection. Other issues: I can not get the remote to change channels even though the setup completes successfully - except the channel changing feature. Also rewinding live tv the system is having trouble syncing up when it trys to play the recorded tv. It plays like 5 sec and then pauses for 5 sec's. Software installed is : ati hydravision, catalyst driver, cyberlind dvd solution, medi@show, intervideo windvd4, winrip and the mce application compatability tools. Can you guys see what is missing - lol!
