Video codec problems

Posts: n/a

I have an AverTV USB2 digital TV box thingy, and it's great. I've been
using it to record digital TV to my computer for ages with great
results. Only problem is I recently installed the XVid codec to watch
some videos I got, and now when I play back my recorded TV in Media
Player I just get a black screen, but I can hear the sound. If I go
into the AverTV software and play the recorded files back through that
it works fine, but the software is clumsy and annoying, and since I
just picked up a Media Centre remote I'd much rather get it working in
MCE/WMP. Anyone know of installing the XVid codec buggering up playback
of non-XVid? If so, how do I rectify it? Thanks!
