MCE Live TV/Video problems.
I've been having a problem getting Windows Media Center to work right.. I've done a few searches and couldnt find anything.
I have windows media center 05, and when I go to watch live tv in full screen mode, it appears to lock up or freeze, but you can hear the tv channel's audio. If I minimize the screen, click and drag the edge back and forth, you can see live TV, but when you stop, it freezes up. When I use another product, such as WinTV2000 my live tv works fine. Also durring setup it asks to "Watch a Video", well that doesnt work either...
I started with a barebones "cube" style case and mobo
P4 2.4ghz 512kb 533FSB
WinTV-PVR 150 Media Center kit
What I've tried:
I've tried reinstalling MCE (on my third try).
I have tried all the various decoders (nvidia, powerdvd, windvd.. etc), nothing.
I have installed the latest drivers for my TV card (its a WinTV 150 MCE), I have also tried installing old drivers.
I have also tried buying a whole new TV card, nada.
Installed latest drivers for my Video Card.
Latest chipset drivers.
Latest Audio drivers.
I am at a total loss. I have no idea what else to try, aside from just not using Media Center.

could it possibly be a video card problem?
i mean, a GF3 Ti200 is a pretty old card....i could be wrong though
Im pretty sure even something liek this should be a sufficient upgrade

My guess is video as well. Did it used to work before by chance? I personally use Beyond TV 4.0 with a PVR 500 card and never have problems.

PVR 150 is great,i use it right now with a MX440 (GF4) and works like a charm with MCE in fullscreen
