Media Center Poor Sound

  superhoops 20:43 25 Feb 2008

Hi I have Windows XP Media Center pc. Recently the sound has gone quite muffled. The picture is still as good as it was before. I have checked the connections etc and there is no problem there.
The sound on the rest of the pc is fine ie media player, itunes, games etc. Any ideas? Thanks.

I have a X-Fi Soundblaster card with MCE and you have to set the sound to entertainment mode I think. If you have a sound card look at the options.

I dont have a dedicated soundcard, it is onboard. What is odd is that the sound is fine on everything else, its just the tv sound on it.

Odd isn't it. May be worth updating drivers?

Superhoops. Have you installed the MCE optional updates to the automatic ones on XP update? I "lost" my tuner after a clean reinstall and only "found" it after installing the MCE extra updates (All to do with Framework files, whatever they are!) Thes are on the Microsoft update site as options.

john bunyan. Yep have checked and all updates are applied. MCE2K5 have tried all suggestions but no good. Think I will restore system when I get a chance, probably about time to do it, I normally do it twice a year or so, hopefully may solve problem. Thanks again
