For some reason, I now get the following directory appearing when I boot. How do I turn it off?

C:\WINDOWS\system32

On the desk top when the computer starts up. I close it and shut down, it comes up when I restart.

So you're not getting the "Windows XP" splash screen when you boot?

By the way, my PVR-250 finally gave out. Bought a PVR-150, like it.

I got a PVR-150 MCE, which I bought last week specifically to install "Windows Media Center 2005"
I gave up on MythTV and other Linux based PVRs. They are all junk, unstable, and a nightmare to keep up.
It's true that I don't like M$, but I have to take my hat off to them for such a fine product
MCE 2005 simply rocks!

Thanks, will try. I already use AVG, Ad-Aware and CCleaner.

I used the 150 to replace the 250 in an XPHome machine. I like using Titan with Hauppage software and the choices for recording quality.

Also have a new Gateway with MCE 2005 and ATI HDTV OTA board. HD captures are really great and conversions to DVD are very good.

Can you use TitanTV to schedule
That is, is there a way to see Titan's "On Screen" guide on your TV and control your Cable/TV/Receiver box somehow
Or you just uses it on a computer to see what's scheduled

Thanks,

My 150 ($99 from circuit city) came with a remote that can supposedly change channels on a cable box to allow scheduled recording. I use basic cable without a box, so don't know. I just click on Titan record button. I would suggest you look on Hauppage site for information on the remote cable box control.

I'll read what I have, as I am planning to go HDTV soon and will have cable box. I also need to read up on how to capure HDTV for DVD.

Read my documentation. The remote has something called "IR Blaster" that includes a cable that attaches from the board to the cable box remote sensor. This is supposed to allow the scheduler to switch cable box channels for recording.

Ok, I see now that Titan is meant to work on a PC. Not really on a home theater like Media Center or MythTV on a real TV
It's cool, but really designed for watching TV on a PC.
The IR blaster is great, if you can get the codes to control your cable/satellite box.
That's what I did with mine, but I'm controlling my FTA (Free-to-Air) satellite box with it
There's a big difference from the WinTV PVR-150 and the WinTV PVR-150 MCE.
The remotes are completely different, because the MCE version was designed specifically for MCE 2005.
I love MCE 2005 because the guide is free!, and I can see it on top of my TV, for example, just like a dish network guide.

Take a look if you have a system32 folder direct access in your start\programs\start folder.
