First I love my MYHDcard. I made the mistake of shutting off my PC while the application was open and playing a movie.


Upon rebooting the machine and opening the MYHD app it get the error:

"failed to create empty document"


I reinstalled both the app and the drivers from the included MYHD 120 disc and I still get the same error. I can no longer run the app.


Please help. Lost without my HD on a Saturday afternoon.

Thanks Cliff that did the trick:)


One more question. I am using a 1.5 terabite server and have about 60 movies loaded on the server. connected to my main PC. When I enter all the movies into the playlist(very time consuming) sometimes the list dissapears and I find I have to keep reloading it. Do you know whats causing this? Do I need to shut off and boot up in a certain sequence and at times can I just boot the main PC to watch the movies stored on its drive and if so is that when Im loosing the list from the server.


Thanks again.

I had this problem maybe 6 months ago, and only uninstalling the app and reinstalling it fixed the problem. When I did that, I lost all my channel settings and reservations.


It happened again a few days ago, when the machine suddenly rebooted when attempting to switch input modes. This time I backed up the MyHD key in the registry. I uninstalled/reinstalled the application and imported the registry key, and all my settings and reservations were intact. Quick and painless.


Perhaps in a future revision MyHD could provide the option to backup/restore you configuration and reservations, not just your playback list.

Newbe here. I'm having a problem with adding digital channels to the channel list. I can manually tune the channels and receive them with no problem, but when I try to add them to the channel list or do an automatic scan they wont take. Solutions anyone?


Thanks

Ridennis: If you are referring to Adding a channel to Favorites... There are two steps, (1) manual tuning or autoscan to locate the channel and (2) adding it to the Favorites list.
