    Microsoft released a couple of patches which will also solve some problems for MediaPortal.
    We recommend that you install them:

    1st one : service pack 1 for the .net runtime 1.1
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...4f-088e-40b2-bbdb-a83353618b38&displaylang=en


    2nd one: DXVA patch for windows media player
    This patch also fixes numerous dvr-ms problems and memory leaks

    But before installing the DXVA patch you'll need to install the DRM patch
    first

    so first install :
    http://www.support.microsoft.com/kb/891122/



    then install :
    http://www.support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;888656

    3th : DVB patch
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/896626

    Installed these patches (except the ;last, I dont run SP2) and now my TV is all blurry :(((((

    It looks like the fields are mixed up, and there is a vertical blur added.

    Worst of all, neither of the installed patched appear in the software updates so I cant uninstall them either.

    ARGH.

    Tried all MPEG decoders available, to no avail :(

    running the pre version and Hauppauge 150MCE here ...

    Mybe you need to update your video card drivers, too - particularly if it is an ATI Radeon, then you need to update to Catalyst 5.6?

    First 2 links, yes.

    Last 2 links, no - XP (or MediaPlayer 10) only according to the info in Microsoft's articles.

    :?: Dude, this is just an update. The DRM stuff is already on your XP. Nobody is forced to install anything here, we just suggest things for having a trouble-free MP installation. Blame Microsoft for their buggy software which has to be patched to run without crashs etc.

    In short: This update does not block anything of your Media or whatever, it just fixes some DVR-MS bugs, which do not necessarily have something to do with DRM. Remember, we don't use DRM protected DVR-MS files. So forget these three bad letters for the moment and just install that crap. :wink:

    mpod is correct

    windows mediaplayer already supports playback of DRM files
    this update is not adding any DRM stuff, it just fixes some bugs
    one of those bugs is a memory leak which occurs when playing back
    dvr-ms files. So you better install it

    again, this update is not gonna add/install new DRM stuff

    As a followup on my problem: rebooting didnt fixed it, but switching between PAL profiles solved it... Simply switched from PAL_B to another and back again, and the image was back to normal, really weird.

    And indeed, DRM *IS* already on your computer (wasnt that introduced with mediaplayer 9? Or was that 10?), as M$ always have their way on MAKING you install whatever they think you should have installed.

    I wonder when I am pressed into installing SP2... Installing that crap entirely screws up IRC'ing and browsing the web whenever I run a P2P program...

    You can always use a system restore point! Windows automatically creates one for each update installation..
