    i have a hr34 and and my directv2pc does not show folders in my playlist. If i delete the other episodes in a series recording, leaving only one episode of the series then the episode will show up.


    BTW I had to run Directv2pc in XP SP3 mode, run on my intel intergrated graphics (asus u36sd optimus) and I had to disable my Microsoft Security Essentials antivirus in order to get the picture to show up!!!!

    What a POS software this is:mad::mad:

    please let us me know if there is a fix for this issue. TIA

    I'd ask for my money back, OH wait it was free and hasn't had any major updates in years, "nevermind".

    I have to run it in compatibility windows sp3 with administrator. and if I dont run administrator it freezes when playing hd video.

    specs
    intel 2600

    nvidia 580gtx latest drivers

    Since Windows 8 isnt officially out, this is moot. It works fine on Windows 7....of course almost nothing I run works on Windows 8, so I don't expect this to work either.

    I'd bet that within a year, it's not going to be available like it is now, and that it will have been "replaced" in some way.

    Yeah, I think you are right on. They haven't done anything with it in quite awhile, and never talk about it. Couple those two things with the twitchyness of the app itself and you've got a map to the end of life.

    Just got a new Dell xps14z. Fired up Directv2pc but was only getting a green screen with HD content. I found a few possible solutions posted. I checked to run it as administrator and changed the compatibility to windows xp service pack 3. The green screen was replaced with a black screen.

    I can click on the status bar and it will forward to that spot. It will also show a quick glimpse of the show. If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated. The laptop has both Intel integrated graphics (Intel HD graphics 3000) and an Nvidia GT 520m. It is my understanding that the video will switch between the two depending on battery life. I wonder if there is a way to stop this and force the Nvidia gpu only. Maybe this would work?

    been combing through all these threads, yet to find my fix. I have 0 receivers found. Used to work. Then randomly out of the blue it stopped on laptop (Vista) and desktop (7) can someone point me to the right thread or give me my quick fix. Meaning what should I look for in my modem settings etc. Thank you.

    I installed Windows 8 and tried to run DirecTV2PC and it kept crashing. It does run fine in Windows 7 Compatibility mode.

    Which Windows version are you running 7 or 8 I hear that there are problems with Windows 8 but not sure, i have Win 7 64 bit, is your modem wireless or do you have separate wireless router? I also hear that is better to reset your wireless adapter through diagnostic through Network and Sharing Center and also enabling media sharing to your receiver

    After a few years of flawless use I am getting the "an error has occurred" message when I try to play something. It's been a while but I believe I had that error and I fixed it by turning of digital on my sound card. I have been messing with sound card settings with no luck.

    I haven't made any changes to my set up at all.

    Might be time for a fresh install and reinstall codecs unless someone has other things for me to try.
