Users with standard privileges unable to watch Live TV in Windows 7 Media Center
Posted on 2010-01-09
Users with standard privileges are unable to watch Live TV in Windows 7 Media Center, the error message is 'Video Error: Files needed to display video are not installed or not working correctly. Please restart Media Center and or restart the computer', application restart nor PC restart do not resolve it. Playback of video files works with no problem as well as TV playback using other SW tuner (ChrisTV), running the Windows Media Center application (ehshell.exe) as administrator allows watching the Live TV even for users with standard privileges, but this is not desired solution. Security audit indicates unsuccessful event 4673 for ehshell.exe ('SeCreateGlobalPrivilege' request) whenever Windows Media Center application is started, which is followed by several events 4656 for svchost.exe afterwards, these events do not appear when running Windows Media Center as administrator. Any ideas, please?
