Media Center 2005 black screen

Software used:
Media Center 2005
Intervideo Windvd 7
AnyDVD 5.5

Playing DVD’s in Media Player works perfect.
In Media Center it gives a black screen.

What could possibly be wrong?

Hi shakudu, I assume you are using a TV and a monitor on the media centre? You can only have one video out at a time. Check your desktop monitor settings.

More info would be nice. :slight_smile:

The only MCE 2005 certified decoder is the nvidia pure decoder, alot of the decoders are not compatible with or work properly on MCE 2005.

use this little tool, it will tell you whether or not your decoder/encoder is compatible.
