I have a Winxp Box that does the same thing, but its media player 10. the wmv file will play on any other pc but this one. Only difference Nvidia on other pc’s and Ati radeon on the one that will not work.
Tivo with a lifetime subrcsiption combined with WHS and the Tivo Publisher add-on and you cant go wrong.I know it’s a large expense initially but you will save time and headaches later. We have had our WHS box for almost a year and the first tivo for 6 months. We loved how they played so well together that we got another tivo for the upstairs HDTV and we will never look back. No more noisy computers or game consoles running while we are trying to watch TV, Tivo and WHS are the cats @ss solution.Tivo also distibutes Tivo Desktop Plus just incase you want to transfer shows to computer or watch them on your ipod.All around a great solution.
