Extender "The shell process exited unexpectedly" Error


Standard Member
Hello there.

For a while now I have been developing a Media Center Edition 2005 PC and, for the best part, things are working well, 2 Xbox 360 extenders included.

However, I have noticed that when I close Media Center on the extenders the closing animation never finishes properly. Instead, the session seems to get "hoofed" of the PC early. A quick check of the event viewer confirmed this somewhat bye the presence of the following error each and every time an extender is exited (by selecting the "X" from the "Start" page).

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Media Center Remote Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 10
Date: 25/02/2006
Time: 23:29:09
User: N/A
Computer: RWTWAP00001
The shell process exited unexpectedly.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Does anyone else experience this, or know if it is normal behaviour? I am slightly concerned that this may lead to profile corruption.

Thanks in advance,
