After researching and trying many different things, I may have made things worse.
In mid July, more and more of my recorded TV would display a blank screen. Audio was ok. This would only be on any copy protected programs. Any program recorded prior to Mid July was working fine.
I tried the following:
1. Attempted using HDMIyo
2. Changed HDMI Cables
3. Changed Video Inputs
After all that had no impact, I think I found the issue to be a problem with PlayReady. I noticed this when changing video cables, all of a sudden a prompt to update PlayReady came up on one of the channels. I updated PlayReady, which it seemed to do fine, and the video came on for that channel for a short period of time. After the video went away, I continued to do the above three steps again, without success.
I then tried the following (note, that I could not do it normally and had to do it in safe mode). I made a backup of all the folders
Code: Select all
net stop ehrecvr cd %programdata%\Microsoft\PlayReady del *.hds rmdir /s Cache cd %programdata%\Microsoft\ehome del *.hds rmdir /s Cache - Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\DRM and delete all files and folders underneath (don't delete the DRM directory itself) net start ehrecvr Run Windows Media Center. Update PlayReady by going through Tasks, Settings, TV, TV Signal, Update PlayReady.
I've uninstalled PlayReady and reinstalled PlayReady. Still get "The PlayReady Update was incomplete"
I wanted to at least watch the recorded TV that I had so I reverted all the items I removed in the steps for PlayReady.
Now what occurs is that when I play an item from things that would have worked previously I get "Display driver error, The video display device does not support playback of protected content."
Did I screw myself? Can I no longer watch any of the recorded TV that I had prior to mid July? Any ideas as to how to get PlayReady updated?
