    I just installed Windows Media Center from the links on this site. However, I get the following error message when I try to play live TV.

    Decoder Error

    The video decoder is not working, is not installed, or is not supported. Try installing the codec or restarting your computer. For more inforation about codecs, see Windows Help.


    Any help would be appreciated. :)

    I am running Windows 10, so I thought this would be the correct place to post this.
