I set up my HTPC with a Hauppauge PVR150 and it worked great, for about a month.
Now, suddenly, I cant record programs or watch live tv. After I click on it, it waits for a few seconds, then gives an error message:
"Disk Error - a temporary problem occurred when Windows Media Center attempted to play TV. Please restart Windows Media Center or the computer and then try again." Restarting/rebooting doesnt help though.
Im well within the disk quota set for recording, still have 340Gb on my 1Tb drive. I have checked the drive for errors and all other programs work fine.
I also deleted a bunch of recorded content, made no difference.
Seems media center decided it cant record to disk anymore, for no particular reason.
Anyone heard of this before?

Three possible things to consider:

  1. Run Chkdsk on your drive.
  2. Goto the hard drive manufacturers site and grab their diagnostic tool and check your hard drive.
  3. Consider rolling back Windows to a previous restore point. It's possible a recent Windows update or software install has caused a problem.
My guess is its the third.

Thanks guys, I restored to a point before the error started occurring and it seems to work now. Not sure what caused the problem, installed a couple windows updates and studiotax, or maybe a random error.
Up and running again, for the moment anyways.
