Media Centre Error 23 - I can't fix it.

  jdtaylor 23:02 20 Jul 2008


I am using Media Center 2005 and I keep getting the error 23 message and I have tried absolutely everything to fix this form using the MCE Repair Tool, to the MCE Reset tool to repairing windows and deleting the epg folder and nothing is working to solve this.

I believe this might be caused by a few of the problems below from the latest MCE Repair log, but if anyone has any ideas how to solve this as it happens every single time I try and restore the guide and channels after Media Center suddenly decided it could not find the channels file which is most annoying.

The error log does seem to show some problems registering and un-registering files which I think have been OK in the past but not now which is why I'm after help.

Well I think it must have been something associated with the recording schedule, as soon as I reset Media Centre and told it not to preserve the recording schedule, the problem seemed to go away, I think thus mauy just mean uf it stops working, reset it and start agaimn especially if you have been trying to use the same recording schedule for some time, the chances are there was a bug or something in it, and as soon as it was told to delete it the problem went away which is most odd.
