Are you using a Windows "N" version or similar? Those versions are missing the Windows Media stuff, which need to be installed separately. The call which fails above is related to the Enhanced Video Renderer (EVR) which doesn't seem to find required filters

I would just comment that to "..... install everything as painlessly as possible." just stick with the standard installed skin included in the install kit (it's called Default Wide).

MP1 MP2 Help with TV setup DE
I really wanted MP to work but I downloaded NextPVR and HDhomerun. HDhomerun picked up all my channels right away and I can watch them there. I don't have NextPVR working yet so I don't get any TV guide or able to record. But it's closer than I've been before. I don't understand why HDhomerun can pick up my channels and MP picks them...

Hmm. The watched-status flags are stored in the database, and the database is retained when you perform an update-install of MP (i.e. not a first-time install). So I would have expected the watched-status flags to be retained. Caveats: (1) If you update from a very-old version of MP, there might have been a change to the database...

Solved VNC did also work with the new monitor setup OK, decided to go to the most basic level and hooked this PC up to an HDMI monitor instead of the old tiny VGA monitor it was hooked up to for testing and it worked fine.
