    Hi guys,

    After a long while, I updated my HTPC's AMD/ATI drivers.
    And I noticed that TV stopped working after that.
    I checked TV-Server configuration and noticed that the software encoder that comes by installing "AMD Media Codec Pack" no longer shows as installed (which is set to top 1 encoder) under General --> Software Encoders.
    "AMD Media Codec Pack", I installed is 12.1.
    When I try to reinstall 11.7, it shows that a newer version is installed (which is true).
    Could it be that AMD changed some naming standard of the encoder so that TV-Server can't identify it but AMD's installer does???



    For reference these are the files I've installed for updating my drivers and software encoder:
    Code (Text):
    1. 12-1_vista_win7_64_dd_ccc.exe   <-- Graphics card drivers
    2. 12-1_vista_win7_32-64_xcode.exe <-- Software encoder
    3. 12-1_vista_win7_32-64_sb.exe    <-- Mainboard related drivers

    Thank you sdf. I didn't know that.
    I guess I'll have to uninstall 12.1 and install 11.12 then...

    Edit: This did the trick for me.

    You can also extract avivo.msi from 11.12 xcode and install only directshow filters with 12.1 drivers
