Oct 2006 Update Rollup for Media Center Released

Microsoft released the October 2006 Update Rollup for Windows XP Media Center Edition today.

This is a cumulative update rollup. This update rollup replaces the following updates:

In addition, this update resolves the following issues: :
  • When you scan for services in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, a connected Italian (Rome) 810 megahertz (MHz) version of MUX is not found.
  • Windows XP Media Center may not be compatible with certain third-party audio stream plug-ins.
  • A race condition may occur after you install Microsoft Windows Media Player 11. Because of this problem, licenses are not saved for TV programs that are recorded and protected. For example, TV programs that are recorded from a provider such as HBO or Showtime will only play for up to three days.

In order to install this update, you must be running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 with Update Rollup 2.
