I had a bad windows problem last week. BSOD that required a Repair Install of XP. Now when I start MediaPortal I get:

"Application has generated an exception that could not be handled.
Process id=0x143c (51880), Thread id=0x1440 (5184).
Click OK to terminate the application.
Click CANCEL to debug the application."

and then MediaPortal Terminates. I tried doing a Repair of MP, but no luck. Do I need to do a full Reinstall of MP? I'd had to lose my show database and settings. I'm wondering if I'm missing some .NET component or whatnot.

I'm all ears. Thanks!

Ok, after reinstalling the Hauppauge Driver, MPEG codec, and MP 1.3 I have everything working pretty well again.

Except...my MCE remote won't work now. The light blinks, like it's receiving the signal from the remote, but it's not doing anything in MP. (or any other application).
I'm running XP Pro...so it should work. Is there a driver you can reinstall for it?
