    DVD problem in MediaEngine

    Running the latest version and it works great - can't wait for GPS and XM support when it's ready.

    I'm having a problem playing DVDs however as I can browse the DVD and select the title and it then goes to a pink screen with a menu - the menu then disappears and it goes full screen - however the DVD nevr plays and it stays with a pink screen. I can get the menu back and exit etc so it just seems that the DVD player is not running.

    I have Ulead DVD Player installed and this plays the DVD perfectly ok although it's not integrated with ME of course.

    Any ideas on what I might have missed?

    Thanks

    Re: DVD problem in MediaEngine

    Forgive me if I'm wrong (complete newbie), but I think it's because you're trying to play a DVD that is from another region to the region your DVD-ROM drive is setup to play (I'm having the same issue).

    If you minimize MediaEngine you may find there is a dialog box prompting for the region selection.

    Hope this helps.

    I don't think that's the problem as the DVD plays perfectly ok outside of ME using the Ulead Power DVD. I am thinking that maybe ME is incompatible with the Ulead DVD player so I am looking for another DVD player to see if that fixes the problem.

    Thanks for the suggestion anyway

    I'm having the same problem in that a Region 1 DVD plays fine through Cyberlink PowerDVD (via http://www.dvdidle.com), but doesn't play through MediaEngine.

    That's very weird then because I just downloaded PowerDVD and installed it and it works just fine. I wonder if there is a specific order that these need to be installed in eg WinDVD folowed by Media Engine.

    I do have the same problem with the XM PCR software installed as an External App - it plays perfectly ok outside of ME but when I launch it from within ME it goes to the Desktop, loads the opening page of XMPCR and then just hangs. If I close it from the taskbar it tells me that XMPCR is not responding and after forcing a close it goes back into ME correctly - very weird.

    Fix for pink screen

    I had the exact same problem when trying DVD playback. I used the control panel to remove PowerDVD, then rebooted, reinstalled PowerDVD, ran ME215 and the DVD now works

    Hope this helps...
