For what this is worth, I had a hard drive slowly go belly up.... In the process, it corrupted the WinTV7 channel database.
Result: Win7 would start, then quickly exit on it's own, no error reporting.
If I then load the channel recording program viewer / editor, it would show as normal minus the grid lines. Nothing else could be done with it.
I was able to do a complete drive image before the whole shebang went west.
A re-image onto a new drive worked flawlessly, including bringing back the corrupted WinTV7 install. :-)
Re-did the install from the web download of WinTV7... When it found the previous channel database, I told it to NOT use it, but create a new channel database, and all worked perfectly.
This may not be your problem, but corruption of various elements of the WinTV7 install do seem to upset it quite easily.
One oddity, the "Open Scheduler (only)" icon *ALWAYS" leaves it on screen, but not having focus. The "Open Recordings (only)" icon works correctly. Strange....
BTW, this is all on Win7, x64 platform using WinTV7 with a 950Q
