I installed MCE 2005 on my epia MII with video on the board with no problems !!
So, I don't think that it's a video memory amount problem
Ouch! I've been in the same situation. It was either stop buying computer hardware or she was gonna leave................. I miss her sometimes.Originally Posted by tbird2340
But then I do have a working MCE 05 on a 51" HDTV with which I can watch porn with.
Then I'd guess it might be something related to either incompatibility between 2004/2005, or some software lock to specific hardware? I dont know... if it isnt working out of the box, and it isnt documented that it requires patches or whatever there might be something else with a problem..... Mobo incompatibility? (unlikely i think, perhaps impossible)...other incompatibility... sometimes u get an error that isnt really realted to the problem (Like being unable to hibernate a computer with wrong VGA drivers!!!)
Ok, I'm back....I've been workin on car stuff recently. I dont have the patience to catch up to everything here...but I wanted to tell you guys about the Applications. Go to start menu, programs, apps, Media Center, Media Center PRograms, and you can add any program you wish. Here's a screen shot.
MCE for me works perfect. Buy the remote, it runs kick ***...every car stereo you buy these days have remotes....I barly touch the screen anyways, but alot of the time I do. And it works fine. I have been workin my *** off to get a DVD Decoder to work without installing Power DVD...but I think I'm downloading the wrong things.
At first install, MCE told me all the errors all of you had....but then it stoped once I installed the newest updated Nvidia drivers for my GF4.
Everything runs kick *** except the DVD unless Power DVD is installed. Which is ****in me off cause people have beeen tellin me to use NVDVD and I have, and it doesn't work....so I'm stilll workin on finding that **** out.

Hopefully learn a easier way to turn off WFP.
