Live TV Pause (Rewind) FFW Locking


Post by blocka » Sun Jul 29, 2018 8:53 am

Hi - I've got an issue with my WMC on Win 10 where while watching live TV if I rewind or pause, the video and audio stop and I cannot FFW back to live, i have to hit stop and then start watching that channel again. If I record the live TV stream while watching, I can pause / rewind and then full forward to skip commercials etc. I can full forward and rewind in a WMC recording that I have recorded preciously.

i have deleted the two registry keys that are well known to cause live TV buffer black screen and also modified the registry key to restore the thumbnails in WMC.

I don't know what's going on.

WMC Build

Windows 10
1803 build 17134

TV Buffer Registry
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Extensibility\Entry Points\{7e7a8710-9e4a-40a3-824a-7b0baf38abcf}]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Extensibility\Applications\{a0cd8951-e5b6-4662-9c9c-d56c5b38ca59}]

Thumbnail Fix

Change Default entry from



C:\Windows System32\EncDec.dll

did you make any progress with this?

I have similar issues sometimes while watching anything but it seems worse in catch-up mode.
