Vista Media Center Audio/Video Problems

Guest

Media Center Starts out great! About 30-40 seconds into live OR recorded
playback, video and sound get choppy. The sound goes out shortly after and
the only way to get it back for the whole 30 seconods is to restart media
center. BTW, When i close media center Vista sounds conviently still work
fine.. Drivers have all been updated and microsoft seems to think there is no
problem. Any help would be appreciated.

There are some known performance issues with Media Center. The Media Center
team is working on getting those fixed by RTM. Have you tried running
Windows Update to see if there are any driver updates for your sound card,
and how about contacting Creative? I would also suggest close out of any
other applications that might want to use large amounts of memory or the
sound card.

Thanks for the info Tom! Unfort. I did update all drivers for video and audio
hardware. Since my hair is gone from pulling it all out, I guess i just gotta
laugh at the 30 second "teaser" i get whenever i begin to watch or record in
media center. Looking forward to Mirosoft pulling it together as i've been
excited about this feature for a long time. Thanks again Tom and if you hear
of anything new please let me know!
