No error message just no picture at all.  I have the HP Pavilion entertainment PC.  I know little about computers, but I would think I should be able to watch tv episodes and videos on it.   Thanks

Hi,

 

Could be something to do with the codec and/or software player. Why not try VLC ?

 

Regards.
