INTRODUCTION

An update is available for Windows Media Center in Windows 7.

More Information

Issue that is fixed in this update

On a computer that is running Windows 7, you use Windows Media Center together with an analog TV tuner to watch live analog TV. In this situation, you receive intermittent Low Bit Rate overlay messages in Windows Media Center.

Windows Media Center monitors the incoming bit rate of live TV. Without this monitoring, the bit rate drops very low when the analog TV input is weak or does not have a signal. This causes a black screen or a static screen to be displayed. With this monitoring, Windows Media Center displays an overlay message to indicate a possible issue with the incoming bit rate when the analog TV input is weak or does not have a signal.

However, the method that is used to monitor the incoming bit rate on analog signals is too sensitive. This may cause a false detection of a low bit rate.


Note Many regions have switched over to digital broadcasting. There are hardware configurations in digital broadcasts to convert the digital signal to an analog signal. These configurations can include set top boxes and digital to analog-switch-boxes.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows 7" section. MUM and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
