Microsoft have today released a cumulative update for Windows Media Center.
A Cumulative Update is available for Windows Media Center in Windows 7. This update fixes the following issues:
- If there is a revoked version of the PlayReady PC Runtime installed when you use Windows Media Center to play protected content, a “Copy Prohibited” overlay message or a black screen is displayed. After you apply this update, the overlay message will direct you to the appropriate PlayReady PC Runtime update on the Microsoft Update website.
- You reference a backup database when the guide database in Windows Media Center is corrupted. If you set a manual recording on a channel that is not listed in the backup database, the Mcupdate.exe process crashes.
- Schedule data may disappear in regions that use in-band guide data. For example, schedule data disappear in Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) regions.
- Windows Media Center crashes when you use an invalid path for a recorded TV location.
The update is available now from Windows Update.
