A HP Vista Media Center to a 42" LCD HDTV: Can't play QT, DivX, etc.


I am helping someone with his new HP Vista Media Center that is wired
network connected to a nice 42" HP LCD HDTV. It works well with over the
air (OTA) HDTV tuner, WMV HD sampler files, DVDs, and non-HD WMV files.
However, playing DivX, QuickTime, etc. doesn't work.

I read that Vista's Media Center (no need for codecs, special players,
etc.) already knows how to handle these video file formats. Is there
something missing that we might had missed? I am not familiar with Media
Center so I am new to this.

Thank you in advance. :)
