I have a Vista Home Premium system with Media Center and a single TV tuner. Having installed Media Converter a few days ago, I did not see problems immediately. However, after powering off and back on, I would repeatedly get the message dialog “Windows Media Center Receiver Service has stopped working” and my TV tuner remained unavailable as if not installed. Research pointed to various video players/converters and codec issues. So, I uninstalled Media Converter and the problem immediately went away, no more Media Center crashes, and TV tuner works normally.
Thoughts, workarounds, etc?
