    Anyone know what happen to my Media Center? I used to watch movie trailers and there are tons of other channels on it. But now, I got none. What's going on?

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    It's still there ... assuming that you are not running win 7 business or some other SKU that does not include MCE.
    Check : Control Panel --> Programs  --> Turn Windows Feature on or off --> Media Features --> Windows Media Center

    You may have changed your region which dictates what shows up in there.

    All Win7 skus (except Home Basic) have Media Center. You're thinking of Vista.

    All Windows 7 SKUs have Media Center.  It's not installed by default on the business SKUs (Business and Enterprise); it has to be added after installation as described.

    Thanks, good suggestion, I think I have changed region recently or something. I should double check.

     

    (I have media center, I just don't have the channels anymore).

    Regarding changing the region. The EPG Guide i MCE i working together with your regional settings. When you configure MCE you have to specifify your zipcode and the seems to be no longer valid after changing region. Try run the MCE setup again.
