Ice TV Windows7 RC
« on: May 06, 2009, 09:22:39 AM »
Just a quick note to say I had all sorts of trouble and could not get tuners to work at all after installing Ice TV before having done a channel scan.
Reinstalled Windows, scanned channels first and it seems to be working fine.

I tested this out on our test machine, and one fix was to get scanning working again was to remove as many files as possible from the "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\eHome\" directory (some files were still in use) and then go through the setup of the TV Signal again within Media Center and this worked.

I posted this elsewhere, but you can blow away the database and fix these issues using the following steps.

1. Close the Media Center UI/Shell (ehshell.exe)
2. Open an Administrator Command Prompt (launch Command Prompt with ‘run as Administrator’ option).
3. In the Command prompt - Change to the root ‘ehome’ directory (ie. c:\windows\ehome)
4. Run the mcupdate.exe command with the parameter ‘-MediaCenterRecoveryTask’
Ie. mcupdate.exe -MediaCenterRecoveryTask
5. Start the Media Center UI – and reconfigure your Media Center system.
