Have you got a suitable MPEG-2 decoder installed (you get one with
some/all nVidia cards)? The funny (and ridiculous) part of installing
MCE2005 is that it has no way of playing MPEG-2 TV/recordings or DVDs
until you install a suitable MPEG-2 decoder, which has to be done
separately to the MCE install.
