Issues that are resolved by this update

In addition to the fixes that are contained in the updates that are listed in the "Hotfix replacement information" section, this update resolves the following issues:
  • Horizontal white line on screen
    When you play a DVD video in Media Center, a horizontal white line appears in some dark areas of the screen. For example, when you press the MORE INFO button on the Media Center remote, a white line appears on the bottom of some menu items. Then, when you close the More Info screen, the white line remains on the screen.
  • Media Center may crash when you use ListMaker
    When you use the ListMaker sample add-in that is included with the Media Center SDK, and you comment out all media types except Pictures, Media Center may crash.
  • Media Center may crash when you open a menu page
    When you open a menu page in Media Center, the program may crash. You receive an error message that resembles the following:
    Program_name has caused an error and must be closed. We apologize for the inconvenience. If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost. Please tell Microsoft about this problem. We have created an error report that you can send to help us improve Program_name. We will treat this report as confidential and anonymous.

  • Black screen appears instead of DVD menu
    When you try to play a DVD video in Media Center, a black screen appears instead of the DVD menu. This problem may sometimes occur with some DVD videos if the following conditions are true:
    • The Media Center screen resolution is set to 720p (High Definition) or to a higher resolution.
    • The DVD video is copy-protected by MacroVision.

Information for Windows Media Center Extenders

Windows Media Center Extenders, such as the Microsoft Xbox 360, use network ports to communicate over the network with computers that are running Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. This update rollup contains updates to Media Center programs that may have been previously configured as "approved" or "allowed" by a third-party firewall. If you use a third-party firewall, you may have to manually update your firewall to let the new versions of these programs access the ports. If you do not perform these firewall updates, you may experience failures when you try to connect the Media Center Extender to the Media Center computer.

Technical support for Media Center

Because Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition was included with your hardware device or system, the hardware manufacturer provides technical support and assistance for this software. Your manufacturer may have customized the installation by using unique components such as specific device drivers and optional settings to maximize the performance of the hardware. If you require technical help with Windows XP Media Center Edition, contact your manufacturer directly because the manufacturer is best qualified to support the software that the manufacturer installed on the hardware.

The Error Reporting dialog box appears when an error occurs that causes a fatal event in the program. The Error Reporting dialog box includes an option to send the information about the fatal event to Microsoft. Microsoft gathers information about these types of events to try to identify the cause.
