    Windows Media Player 12 will not play TiVo downloads, sound comes through but no video. I have installed K-lite codec pack, but no success. Any suggestions? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Thank you also for your service.I imagine you are talking about the Gulf of Tonkin.
    I was all over that country,from one end to the other.Now I am 100% disabled for serving my country in Vietnam.

    I downloaded and tried the codecs, neither wmp 12 nor movie maker 12 will work in win 8. I also tried ms help forums and I was told that win 8 does not support wmp 12 nor live movie maker. I, of course can purchase an upgrade to win 8 pro for $99.99 from Microsoft and get full functionality. What a ripoff from Microsoft. I politely declined. Any other suggestions?
