WMC stops on recorded tv

Post by airic201 »

All of a sudden, in WMC, when I try to go into the recorded tv option, WMC shuts down. I get a message that Windows is searching for a solution and will restart the program. I have restarted my computer a few times and this keeps happening.
I don't believe I have changed anything on my computer lately. Live television and the guide continue to work great.
Any ideas?

Make sure hard drive where you record tv is good. Also remove all media libraries for wmc and window media player. Add them back one at time and see if it fixes.

It might be a corrupt file in the recorded TV directory. You can try moving them to some other location one at a time (starting with most recent) and see if that corrects the problem.

Looks like I had a corrupted file. When that file was first, it would shut down. Thanks!
