Please read the 'Legal Terms' link at the bottom of the page at the site Drover has posted..Sadly, the software is not actually free, the way I read it. It's not expensive though, about AU$9.00. The problem for me is that this is done via sending them 3 premium rate SMS (text message) and in my experience this can be a terrible trap that never stops when its supposed to... your call I guess.I think I can make an alternative suggestion regarding somewhere to get it for free though, and I will let you know as soon as I have confirmed this.

Hey Drover,March 8, 2009 at 6:12 am #31307
Thats great!!!! I never thought about a trial version to get the decoder..That's very funny…And I have no idea if the decoder will still function when the trial is up. Please let us know what happens after 30 days trial.March 8, 2009 at 2:51 pm #31308
If I can't find a key for the program before 30 days I will probably try and re install every 30 days. I guess I could / should just spend the money and buy a legit copy.March 9, 2009 at 1:03 am #31309Drovers DogParticipant

I have a Vista 64 bit machine with Media Center and was having the same problem except sometimes I could and sometimes I couldn't FF, RW and use the Remote.April 23, 2009 at 3:59 am #31311
You should be able to right click on the recorded tv file and choose “open with” from the menu. Then choose media center. If you want that type of file to always use media center, simply tick the box 'always use this program' as well.You can also go to the control panel and open the Autoplay settings and change what program is used when you open a certain file.April 23, 2009 at 5:32 am #31312AnonymousInactive

I am happy to report that after the 30 day FREE trial version of Power Dvd expired all functions still work.April 23, 2009 at 7:32 am #31314
Typical of Microsoft to have not bothered to properly integrate something. How very strange that they can have Media Center Player and Media Player both running on the same computer. Would it not make more sense to remove the original Media Player and simply use the one designed for use in Media Center? If I upgraded to Media Center, I'd expect the installation process to include removing those parts of Windows which will now become obsolete or doubled up, and if I were performing a fresh install of Media Player from a disc, I'd expect the extra stuff that is no longer required to not even be on the install disc!WTG Mr Gates.. obviously not a computer user anymore?

Pittsburgher, Happy to know it worked out for you, funny how Third Party Software often fixes M$ Impossible Problems?
