ehrecvr.exe error message after installing SP3

    Hi,

    I own a Freecom Hybrid DVB-T USB Stick which used to work fine (Was
    able to see TV), unfortunately since I installed SP3 for Windows XP I
    always get following annoying message on startup when plugging in the
    DVB-T USB Stick:

    An unhandled win32 exception occured in ehrecvr.exe

    The message keeps popping up every 5 seconds, until I disconnect the
    USB Stick.

    When I check the event viewer following error message is generated by
    the Media Center Receiver service:

    TV Tuner Malfunction. (0x80040265) TridVid Tv Tuner

    I found comments of people who experienced the same problem, but
    nowhere a decent solution... apperently one or more KB's is causing
    problems:

    It seems that some fixes which were part of "Update Rollup 2 for
    Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 RU2" are reverted when you install
    service pack 3:

    I tried all different kind of things, but nothing seems to work. :(

    Maybe you guys can give me a hand.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you tried uninstalling / reinstalling the tv stick ?

    Is the device supported in SP3?

    Was the device connected to the computer when you installed SP3 *and then
    all of the August 2010 updates*?

    Why did you wait until WinXP SP2 was no longer supported before you
    installed SP3?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed SP3?

    Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer?

    Did a Norton or McAfee free-trial come preinstalled on the computer when you
    bought it? (Doesn't matter if you never used or Activated it.)

    I already reinstalled the playback software several times without any
    success.

    I got bored one day and thought by myself 'hey, let's install that
    great sp3 finally' but I wish I never had.

    I think the USB-device was indeed connected when I installed sp3, can
    this have caused the problem?

    Norton has been installed in the past, but removed it longtime ago
    using the Norton Removal Tool.

    I'm not the only one who can't watch TV any longer after installing
    sp3, but there's no decent solution for this problem.

    We have no idea WTF you're talking about or to whom you're replying.

    To keep track of things, it helps immensely if you quote all of the previous
    message(s) in your replies to the newsgroup. Thank you.
