My Windows XP Media Center dell PC died a few weeks ago leading to a reformat of the C drive and a reinstall of windows. Since then, Media Center playback has been choppy. I'm betting that I have the wrong driver or codec now - it was find before my system died.
Q: how do I tell what TV card I have - I pulled it out and it has ATI on it - I think it is a Theatre 550. Dell part = 320-4279 (Single TV tuner with remote control)
Q: How do I tell what hardware device the TV card is (in hardware manager) - so that I can check which driver it is using
Q: How do I tell what codec I am using? A: Found a windows utility (Win XP Video Decoder Checkup) - it says I am using Sonic CM® DC VideoDecoder 4.0. Is this any good?
Q: Is this the right forum @ woodies? If not, any other forum either here or someplace else on the web?
