    Am I the only one having this happen?

    All of a sudden WMP doesn't work any more on .tivo files.

    It loads the selected show and you see about a half of a second of it and then it quits.

    Is this another one of those expired certificate things?

    This particular PC is running Windows 7.

    Previously, as in a few days ago, it was working fine--I use it to check the quality of show copies I make with TiVo Desktop, but now it's not even working on files created back when it was working.

    I'm thinking there is glitches or it needs QuickStreamFix.

    But .tivo files that it played just fine a week or two ago are also affected, so I'm thinking the problem is external to them.

    Guess what? A reboot of the PC seems to have fixed it.

    I'm guessing it was a RAM shortage since apparently people who write web browsers *still* don't care about memory leakage.
