(In tandem with Portable LibreOffice on a stick,as i do currently i may want to buy a third
MDP-130, not to play DVDs...VLC can do that..but to watch TV in the den on a second monitor)

I was running various ISOs I've downloaded to a spare drive and one I tried was W7U 32 bit.
When i ran its' test the result was that I wasn't HAV capable, hence no XP mode.
So in my slow migration away from my beloved Windows 2000 Professional, I'm going with
XP Pro. I didn't see the tab you mentioned, just in system folder "Windows is activated".
I was temporarily happy until i sought info on XPmode.
I'm going to have to get a book on W7 anyhow, the bloody thing was doing stuff before
I realized that I was connected and it upgraded to IE9 and it kept nagging about
the malicious software tool even after I told the system to ignore and not repeat the
update item again. I need to learn how to disable stuff first, in that XP Pro is more familiar.
There I just need to move all disk access items away from the SSD to ram or another conventional
mechanical HDD.

Blame Adobe [flash], Java [runtimes] , Mozilla [going to VC++2010 compiler]
and VideoLAN[ VLC mediaplayer] .

Hi,

 

Yes you need a W7 book to understand XP Mode on W7 64 Bit.

 

MyHD will NOT run in a Virtual Machine thus W7 32 Bit version is needed.

I doubt that anybody "needs" XP mode (which effectively involves running XP in a virtual machine under W7). I have found nothing that ran under previous versions of Windows that fails to run in (32-bit) W7. The "compatibility" settings that Teeps mentions are on the properties dialog of the individual respective programs. Just set the installation exe files to run with XP compatibility and you're golden. If you have an SSD in your system, I see no point in messing with any version of XP rather than stepping up to W7.

As we stubbornly cling to MyHD...

I wish MIT would get back into the game.

So just the regular 1.66.1.1E app & driver exe is all ?

I mean I only had a cursory glance at it and when my P4 failed the test I just went with XP Pro.

It wouldn't be that much of a hassle, as I keep myself to using the PortableApps stuff on a stick,
so all I need is just the base OS.

I'm still going to need a book though before using it on a daily basis, W7U is just too alien to me now.
My mozzilla stuff is all updated now where before it was stuck at versions 12, now both are at 15,
and carrying the profile folders and .ini files brought me back to where I was on 2000.

Browsers and their plug-ins were the biggest hurdle 'till now. I can just carry over those apps and their data
when I'm good and ready to 7.

Also have an XP light that will go into the replacement for the old eMachine.

I'm sure I will have questions in the near future, so don't go away wink.gif

WinXP pro + all updates
MyHD 1.66.1u
CW_epg 4.1.1.5
CWHelper Version 4.0.8.42

Before I reinstall MyHD, I'd like your input ... that a reinstall is necessary.

Yesterday, I stopped a recording in progress to install YTD free version (you tube downloader), but the blue TV icon in the system tray wouldn't terminate. Tried right click, but the pop up froze. Tried Task Manager...got rid of the popup. Tried rebooting but icon was still there. I went ahead and installed YTD...no issues with it; seems to work great. Today after a night of you-tube downloading, the blue TV icon is gone But I don't have any sound from the TV, full screen or overlay. A recording session occurred over the night, it seemed to be alright (audio fine). I'm not sure which one caused this; stopping a record, or YTD install, but the issue seemed to start within 12 hours of one or the other.

Any Ideas that might save me from a reinstall?

Perhaps removing YTD??? (I think it uses the 'ffmpeg codec' for conversion...alien to my system before yesterday)

If a reinstall is needed; Can I reinstall over the old directory? Or should I uninstall first?
Also, I'm using CW_epg and Playlist Manager; Anything I need to be cautious of here?

Thanks Much,

EDIT: Sorry...originally posted this as a 'new thread', thus ending up in the wrong place......will delete that.
post #12220 of 12461
It sounds as though YTD may have messed up MyHD's audio configuration. I expect that you can fix everything (perhaps even without uninstalling YTD) by just running the MyHD installation exe again. That should keep all of your MyHD settings and channels, etc., but I advise making a security copy of the configuration files in the MyHD Program Files folder before running the re-installation just to be sure.

Muse and Terry,

 

I have discovered another program that when attempted to be run at the same time as MyHD, MyHD will become non responsive. frown.gif

 

It's Outlook Express on Windows XP. I just started to use it ~ one month ago on my HTPC. redface.gif

 

Tonight it was really bad as I had to hit the reset button and my USB Wireless Trackball had to be disconnected and reconnected to work. mad.gif

 

This is in addition to the know problems with VLC media player which caused ~ 10 MyHD hangs during the 900x900px-LL-1ffe486f_Olympicrings.PNG

 

There may be additional programs that will hang MyHD.

I thought Windows Live Mail replaced OE a long time ago. But I think I had no issues when I was still using it.. I suppose other updates could be causing an issue between the now, unsupported OE, and XP... when MyHD is running.....just supposing....biggrin.gif

Hi,

 

ON Vista OE is replaced by Windows Mail, a buggy version to say the least.

 

On W7, Live Mail replaces Windows Mail, Live Mail is not desirable so I installed Windows mail to get UseNet back.

 

On W8 Live mail is gone to be replaced by ... , well I am no longer interested.

Really? I'll take another look at it, the 32-bit version.... but may still want a book on it as it did do things during setup and after, that I wanted to control.
Since I'll go with ASRock for my next workstation mobo, they have a nice easy-peasy ram disk utility that I can use for swap, temp etc above the 4gig,
even though I have gobs of 720 and 1.44 microfloppies with a plethora of such utilities.

I guess ya'll know that you can't run MyHD while doing a scan with Spybot?
It'll lock you out every time until a reset. So I shut it off and go sleep for a while,
or watch the other.
post #12228 of 12461
I haven't run SpyBot in a very, very long time. Like Fred Langa, I simply use MSFT's Security Essentials (and Firewall) these days and let it go at that. MSE seems to be compatible with nearly everything and doesn't appear to mess up such things as HDD accesses that other AV apps sometimes do. IOW, it's good enough (and free).

Funny, I made it through most of the 900x900px-LL-1ffe486f_Olympicrings.PNG, maybe 10 days, without a hiccup out of MyHD, I stood (mostly sat!) in amazement, of course in large part because of the incredible programming, but also because I was undisturbed by MyHD related anomalies, which I've endured off and on for years. Just today, in order to view a timeshift I made this morning, I had terrible troubles, tried closing and reopening MyHD, the system was evidently frozen (couldn't bring up task manager), and I removed power from the machine and restablished power and powered on the machine, etc. I do this now instead of reset because often times my startup process goes only so far and stops. This can be prevented by doing it by removing power, etc.

After I had the machine restarted, MyHD up, and I started watching the timeshift, I was unable to adjust volume in MyHD (the volume controls were unresponsive, either from the keyboard shortcuts or the remote), also I couldn't see the time, etc., except for the station and signal strength, when pressing the appropriate button on the remote. As well, I could not see the time into and time remaining on the screen when pressing the appropriate button on the remote, same button, I suppose it's called "Display," not sure because I use my programmed universal. Closing and reopening MyHD didn't resolve the problem. I think I've seen that before, this time I decided to just live with it rather than try something as drastic as another reboot.

I don't use Outlook or Outlook express. Of course, I do have stuff running, although I sometimes close as much as possible in an attempt to make MyHD run more reliably. However, I have not too much to confirm that this strategy is helpful. I use enditall.exe to "close all," a few times even "kill all" with inconclusive effectiveness.

Today, after finally getting MyHD running I sank into my chair after my battle and mumbled something to myself about having to get another motherboard, or at least do a reinstall of Windows XP. I am overdue for that, but I have a lot of other things on my plate, so I've put it off. I think I would benefit a lot from a reinstall of XP on my desktop, but my hand hasn't been forced, as it were.

Ah, Steve, the antenna report. Yes, there's much to report on that. Actually last night, less than 24 hours ago I confirmed my purchase of two antennas from solidsignal.com:


Winegard HD-7082P High Definition VHF/UHF/FM TV Antenna (HD7082P)
for pointing south to get the TV stations from that direction, plus FM. It's cheaper than the Winegard HD-8200u, actually has a higher spec than the 8200u at channel 6, which is approximately where the FM band resides, I'm told (6.2db over reference dipole at channel 6 compared to 6.0db for the Winegard HD-8000u). It's somewhat smaller at 9' x 9', where as the 8000u is a beast at 14' x 9'!



Winegard HD 7694P High Definition VHF/UHF HDHD769 Series TV Antenna (HD7694P)
for Sutro Tower TV, pointing west.

Getting a couple of Weingard splitters, 2 and 4 way.
- - - -
The 7694P is VHF/UHF, not FM, $45

The 7082P is VHF/UHF/FM. At $70 it's cheaper than the 8200U, which is $116.

Hi,

 

Replace the MDP-120 with the MDP-130, reinstall XP SP3, install your new antennas and don't add any unnecessary software.

 

Get another computer for non HTPC use.

 

Terry told me much of the same about ~ a decade ago , I ignored his advice for way too long.

 

I now am much happier using my HTPC for just DTV and I regret I ignored his and others advice and suffered way too long.

 

The MyHD was built and tested with ONE, repeat JUST ONE program installed.

 

We have to live with that, as much as we wish not to.

 

Your turning power off may be useful, the MyHD card I have sometimes becomes completely RF deaf and leaving power off for ten minutes is the only way to fix it.

 

We are creatures of habit, my Fusion problems (Two reports only) may be explained by something I keep doing on all my computers right after turning them on the very first time.

 

I have not done the test yet, but after ~ 15 OS fresh installs of three OS's, XP, Vista and W7, three different motherboards, two HDD types and two different graphics cards I may have come up with the reason.

 

Your MyHD hangs may be very hard to track down because you do not realize what you are doing just like I was.

post #12231 of 12461
Sounds like some pretty good suggestions, thanks! Nowadays, I have other computers, namely laptops, so I can and do use my HTPC far less for non-HDTV usage. I still check my email on it, tons of browsing, do some CD and DVD burning, but I can do burning on my laptops, I suppose. I have VLC installed, I think, on the desktop, maybe I should forgo that.

Nice post, thanks!

One thing I like to do with that desktop machine (a mid tower, actually), is multiboot. Just have XP installed in two partitions. This lets me troubleshoot problems and has the nice advantage of being able to go to a relatively fresh install of XP if and when the other gets dodgy, and they always do after a while. Then I can do a fresh install on the dodgy partition and it will become my new freshie!
post #12232 of 12461
I received a pleasant surprise yesterday morning while testing the replacement for that old eMachine which died on me last spring.
It played one of my coveted .mkv files, unconverted to .avi, and the Sempron 145 barely hit 60% cpu [and that was merely the peak]
usage, where the Pentium 4 in the ASUS couldn't do the job and struggled with .mp4 files. It also runs 35 degrees F cooler than the P4
ever did. The average cpu usage on the Sempron was 44-55 %.

So I don't need to buy a mult-core [save money] I don't need to build three machines [ save even more money] and especially for what
I can't get over the air, I can now download without wasting time using SUPER to convert mkv to avi, though still use it to convert
wav to mp3 to use in my phone [wave files for some reason wouldn't play in my Samsung].

I haven't been put off by the ASUS brand, just the Intel/Pentium architecture, indeed while the new PVR is an nVidia chipset AMD from ASRock, the board
I'm getting is an ASUS with the same Geforce 7025/nForce 630a AM3 socket [as in the ASR] for the workstation build. Indeed, the old ASUS recently started
glitching badly, you could even hear it over the speakers. My theory, once I learned that "the Memory Pro" , now out of business, sold me the wrong
ram. It was 266 DDR2, rather than the 533 I ordered [only took me four years to figure that out redface.gif ] and reseating the ram made the glitches
go away. So it was either that, or the ram sockets were stressed because it was stable after that but months later the same thing would occur
yet reseating seemed to work each time. So Muse, try reseating, from ram to PCI slots....don't always blame the OS, it can go flaky if the signals
don't have reliable pathways. I wish there was an easy repair for slots that get stretched/bent out of shape..

Until the rebuild of the workstation is done, I'm temporarily using the PVR as one, remember I run all my major apps in their portable form.
When it is ready to be used as a PVR, I'm deleting all the terminate and stay resident programs like AVG and Outpost Firewall
because I want nothing to interfere with MyHD's operation in this machine. The OS is an nLite version of XP Pro.
I've already ordered another Sempron 145 from Newegg.ca ...can't find Semprons anywhere else, not TigerDirect.ca or NCIX.com
or locally, Newegg seems the only game in Canada.

Now, except for my questions on running MyHD in Win7, that's it.
For Win 7 I'm getting another big thick "QUE" publishing book.

I want to swap out my MyHD 120+daughterboard for my MyHD130+daughterboard.

1. Can I just do this and have the MyHD application work as if I hadn't swapped out the 2 boards for the 2 other boards?

2. If not, do I have to reinstall the MyHD application (presumably after removing it)?

3. Do I have to reinstall the driver?

4. Is there some place I can save my settings for retrieval? I'm only seeing the channel list, which I did just save. Don't really care about list of files to play


Thanks for tips.

PS: I'm using a serial port MyIRC receiver, that I'm going to have to change for the USB version that came with the MyHD 130.

PPS: Received my Weingard antennas yesterday, gotta install them. Wonder to what extent (if any) I have to replace the RG6 UL CATV cabling and/or splitters. I do have plenty of extra cable on a spool, new Weingard splitters, too, but don't want to do the work if it's not necessary! Guess I could try using what's there and see what kind of signal strengths I'm getting?????????????

You are running out of time for the start of the fall tv season...

Pull the 120 and insert the 130 and see what happens. Worst case is you will have to do 1,2 & 3. Shouldn't take more than 20 minutes, plus time for scan.

I do believe you will have to rescan the stations, either way.

I recently inserted a signal amp and a splitter on the tv line feeding the MyHd130 in my system.
MyHd does not seem to care. All channel strength, as reported by MyHd, is over 80%.
(your mileage may vary depending on ambient conditions.)

Now, go swap those cards...
post #12235 of 12461
Muse, it's been a long time since I swapped out a 120, but....IIRC, you can do so by simply shutting down the PC, swapping the cards, and rebooting. No need to rescan channels or reset other settings.

If you don't change the IR receiver there should be no effect, since the installed software for the two versions is the same and it will sense the correct hardware at startup. The exception to that is the IR receiver. If you change from serial to USB you will need to install the driver for the new unit and I think the simplest way to do that is to run the setup.exe. I don't recall if an in-place installation preserves all settings, etc., but I think it may.

I don't suppose there's a separate setup.exe for the IR receiver, so I'd have to run setup again. Would I uninstall first? Is there any advantage to using the USB receiver over the serial receiver? One reason I got this mobo is the 2 serial ports. I'm using the other for access to my MX-700 programmable remote.

I'll just do the card swaps, cross my fingers and see what happens this morning. cool.gif Thanks for the help.

PS I'm gonna drop the MyHD 120 cards in my alternate mid-tower for those occasions when there's two programs on simultaneously that I don't want to miss. Um, like today! smile.gif I don't expect to be doing that a lot. The results will be better than my old SVHS VCR.

Installed the 130+daughterboard (what should be so easy was just too hard), it seems to be working OK. Upon starting the machine I got the Found New Hardware Wizard, and I let it do its thing. I now have two working antenna inputs, the first benefit. I'll now run a scan on antenna one (only antenna two was working on the 120 card). Will put the 120 in my other mid-tower machine, sans daughterboard because that machine connects to my display by VGA. cool.gif

Does anyone know why I'm having the following behavior?

I used to be able to toggle MyHD from full screen to minimized (I generally don't do the Overlay Window thing) by double clicking my mouse. For the last month or two this hasn't worked and I've had to use the dedicated button my my remote. How come?

I managed to get the 130 working OK AFAIK in my main mid-tower and then the 120 likewise in my #2 machine, which is running Windows 2000 Pro and doesn't have a network/internet connection because I've run out of jacks in my router.

Likely you needed to restart the PC after the new hardware was discovered.

was going to watch a timeshift on the W2K machine with the newly installed 120 card+daughterboard. It was connected by VGA, things seemed to be working. Issues:

1. With Use numeric keys as FF/RW enabled, only the 2x was working, not the 8x. I hunted for a setting, could find none.

2. Sometime the OSD does not include two sections, and that was the case here. The right hand section which includes the time was missing. I've seen this on the other machine at times.

3. I had the idea that I wanted to use my PJ, and its HDMI input, so I enabled DVI output in the MyHD control panel and connected the daughterboard to the PJ (through a couple of switches I have used successfully with my other machine). However, I wasn't getting a signal from the daughterboard. Do I have to disconnect the VGA cable (that goes to my desktop monitor) to get the signal from the DVI of the daughterboard?

4. My team lost (49ers were crushed/humiliated)! biggrin.gifmad.gif

Edit: I just noticed the Input button on the remote. Do I have to press that to toggle the VGA and DVI output?
