    There is apparently a hotfix for this error, which you can receive if you
    contact Microsoft.

    Error message when you start a Windows Vista-based computer that has more
    than one TV tuners: "Windows Media Center Receiver Service stopped working
    and was closed":
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/938928

    The article references another article, with another hotfix, KB936229,
    should the above hotfix fail to solve the problem.

    Thanks that worked. After I requested for the hotfix, MS sent me the hotfix
    download hours later. Applied the hotfix and the error went away.

    Thank you for reporting this. I'm glad to hear that you took the time to
    contact Microsoft and ask for the download, and that the fix worked.

    Re: major Error in Vista Media Center


    I have the same error as "Ted F"
    My Dell Dimension 9200 has the Hauppauge WIN TV-HVR-1600 Dual Tuner PCI
    Card. I upgraded from Vista Home Basic to Home Premium on 12/30/2007.
    Everything has worked great with the Media Center and TV watching and
    recording with both tuners until today. When I clicked to open Windows Vista
    today I consistently get the following error:

    "Windows Media Center Receiver Service stopped working and was closed"
    Per MS Tech Support Knowledge Base, I have tried both hot fixes (938928
    (1st) and 936229 (2nd)) and neither fixed the above problem.

    Any additional suggestions would be appreciated.
