thanks again VOS
So far have been able to play my OTA recordings so glade they got that fixed.
I was able to use an older version of this software with no problem but now when it starts there are no warning messages or any thing like that but no video is displayed. There is sound but that's it. I have a core 2 duo 7200 laptop with an ati 256 meg x1600 graphics card. I have tried updating my ati drivers but it does not make any difference still no video. Also I should note I'm running Windows 7 RC 64 bit. Any ideas???
Ok, so I'm totally stumped. I've search this site, the net and I'm exhausted. I've been looking for several hours for the solution. Perhaps one of you will know where the magic switch is. I need some help.
I have installed the d2pc program on my laptop and home pc - it opens, begins scanning, but doesn't find my HR-2x receiver. "0 receivers found"
Things I've tried:
1. verifying on router DHCP Client list HR-2x is listed with proper address
2. enabling/disabling windows firewall
3. enabling/disabling UpnP on router
4. restarting router/receiver/pc
5. pressing red button on receiver
6. enabling/disabling Internet sharing
7. disabling virus scanner
8. making sure d2pc is checked on "exceptions" in firewall settings
9. entered ip address of HR-2x on DMZ of router
Like I said, I've installed and tried this on both laptop and home pc. I get the same results. I assume its not the computers, but between them and the HR-2x. Any other ideas would be much appreciated!!
How is your DVR connected to the home network?
What kind of router & network?
Does your DVR connect to the internet? Does VOD download work?
FYI, UPnP only applies to Network Services, and there are currently no applications using it.
It's likely that the ATI video card isn't HDCP-compliant, and if not, surprised you got that far without an error message.
Got any newer hardware to try it on?
My key doesn't work anymore. Downloaded the Playback advisor and states my computer is now "non-compliant" and will not progress to the point where I can get a new key.
How can I fix this?
As I recall you'll have to get the Advisor to pass before you can get a new key.
(Excuse me for not knowing for sure, got my keys pre-Advisor days and they've always worked)
So what's non-compliant? Video card or monitor?
Why would make playback advisor hang forever at 20%?
Not on my (6-month old) desktop PC (Vista). As soon as I start to play an OTA recording, DIRECTV2PC crashes. No issues on laptop except it has a "g" card so OTA recordings studder...
Right. For me, the app is completely unpredictable: if it plays, it plays; if it's going to hang, it hangs right away with a black screen (sometimes with audio, sometimes not). So my solution is to always start in a window and, if it plays, then switch into FullScreen -- if it hangs in a window, I'm able to kill the app without difficulty, whereas if I start out trying to watch a film in full screen and it hangs, I can't switch out of whatever wierd video mode it's locked into. Solution: hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete (start TaskMan), blindly tab to the Shutdown option (find out in advance how many tabs it takes to get there), and hit Enter: machine shuts down normally after a minute or two (albeit with black screen throughout).
The software installed and I am connected to my HR23. I see my recorded shows. Every time I go to play something it crashes with "DIRECTV2PC has encountered a problem and needs to close." I get this message every time and have yet to watch a single show. Do you know what the problem might be?
Thank-you very much - Doug might want to think about adding this tip in the standard release notes.
Just installed 517 - and it works.
You don't need to pass that to get a new key. I haven't run the advisor in MONTHS and was still able to get a key. Just get to the point where it asks for your name and email address and you can get a new one. If you have already gotten 2 at your email address, you will have to use another one to be able to get a new one. I have gotten like 6 keys so far using different addresses, so you don't have to run the advisor.
I have fixed my install issue. It's working, 'cept for -some- protected audio content.
I don't have the exact options that you do VOS, so I will be looking into what it takes to make it all work.
My "screen shot" was from Win7, so you should have the same option.
What sound chip do you have?
No problem with the new build Windows 7 Ulitimate RTM 32, and hdcp issues are non existent, along with it being a bit more stable...so far.
Imbedded MS with a Realtek HD Audio driver. I -so far- have not found a way to "downgrade" this driver.
I just set the bit rate to a lower output level and all is good now.
When I cued up "how its made" it asked me for the parental control code.
Overall PQ is outstanding, and I am happy to use dual monitors.
Try the Realtek Win7 driver
