So I woke up this morning and found I had only a few channels and some errors from WMC saying it couldnt record because of no signal on certain channels (scheduled recordings). This does seem to happen once in a while. Although WMC doesnt tell me right off, from previous experience I assumed that Playready needed to be updated. (this happenes from time to time). So I rebooted the HTPC and when WMC starts it immediately tells me I have to update Playready. (like it usually does in these situtions). So I update Playreasy, it finishes and tells me it was successful and that I can now watch TV.
This time however, I still cant watch any copy protected channels. Which for me is just about everything after the networks. So I tried restarting WMC, no change. I rebooted the HTPC and again, as soon as WMC starts it tells me I have to update Playready. I just did that! UGH! So I updat again and it tells me again that it was successful. Again I triyto watch TV, No dice. I am stuck in a loop! I know some people have had issues where Playready would error and not update, but for me it says it HAS updated, but for somereason didnt.. not sure..
I tried a few things with no success. I tried uninstalling Playready and downloaded it through WMC. Same issue. I tried renaming the Playready file and running the update again. (had to start in Safemode to do this). My next sted is to try the DRM Reset Tool from Microsoft. But I am worried this might screw things up more. And if I use the Reset Tool, I may not be able to watch any previously recorded copy protected shows.
ANy advice would be helpful. I would really like to have this working today.
I am running Win 7 64 bit, Ceton infiniTV4 with a cable card from TWC in New England.
