    Synopsis: When playing some DVDs, I just get a black screen instead of the DVD menu. Other DVDs play perfectly OK (including menus). If I change the video render type to VMR7 it works although with a lot of flickering when moving the mouse or showing OSD. The same DVDs are working ok with Windows Media Player 10.
    Any help will be very appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Saw that thread. I have been using

    MPEG/AC3/DTS/LPCM Decoder
    MPEG2DEC Decoder
    DVD Navigator

    for over a year and just recently have started having problems like getting a black screen (but hearing sound) when putting in a disc, dvd not playing at all, menu getting all freakish, etc. Pressing stop and then play usually fixes the 1st problem. I just did a fresh install of RC2 with no CVS and will try that tonight as this is getting very frustrating... but it's my own fault by playing around with the CVS stuff.

    Same problem wit the 2006-31-01 CVS

    Guess I just lucked out recently because I am using one from 01/30 and most stated problems have vanished ... except for the dvd menu issues. I also switched to the nvidia stuff so that could be involved ... so many variables it's a tech support nightmare. Guess thats why Microsoft has their standard hardware requirements fot Media Center :shock:

    Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

I see that RadioTime is now a new software company called TuneIn How do I find...
