Windows Media Player 9 Radio Tuner

  [DELETED] 08:41 07 Oct 2003

I have Win Me IE6 and Media Player 9. Media Guide works, but Radio Tuner gives "page cannot be displayed". On my Win 98SE machine with IE5.5 both work fine. I have reinstalled Media Player and set internet settings in IE6 to default, but no joy. Any tips gratefully received!

mp 9 is designed for xp.

Thanks for reponding 'the lone cloner'. However there are two versions of this player on the MS site, one for XP and the other for 98SE, Me etc. With W98 I think you have to use Media Player 7. Anyway, MP9 works fine on on my machine with 98SE on it.

Any more ideas out there?

Make sure that it has access ti the internet through your fire wall.

Hi Noddy 1. Yes it does, otherwise I don't think Media Guide would work.

I'm bumping this one as I got nowhere last time. I don't understand how 'media guide' can work fine, but 'radio tuner' cannot display page. MP must be connecting to internet OK to display media guide. Am I the only one with this problem?

You are not alone !!!

Media player was working fine on my XP machine last week and now "page cannot be displayed" exactly the same. Must be a problem at their end! Anyone else experiencing problems when there weren`t any previously?

Nice to know Taff36! Have you got EXACTLY the same problem, ie. Media Guide OK but Radio Tuner not?

I have XP and WMP9a - both Media Guide and the Radio Tuner are working as they should at this very moment (Virgin 1215).

NO !!! aaaarrrghhh !! Neither is working - how did that happen ?

I wonder if things like ad. or pop-up blockers have anything to do with this?
