Testing Sage while running VMC

Posted by onlydarksets on July 30, 2008

Update: You have to disable the service, not stop it.  And, you have to also disable the “Windows Media Center Scheduler” service.

ehrec.exe ties up the tuners, so you can’t run an alternate media center while running VMC (or MCE).  Just stop disable the “Windows Media Center Receiver” service, and you should be good to go.

To access the services in Vista:

  1. Open Windows Explorer
  2. Right click on “Computer”
  3. Select “Manage”
  4. Select “Services and Applications”, and the “Services” from the tree
