Even though there is quite a bit of recorded TV on the system, and the standard WMC interface shows all of my recordings correctly. I've attempted more than one reinstall, and I made sure to delete the folder. Same thing shows up when I install it again. Am I missing something?
Trying to create backdrop thumb error: c:\Users\Public\RecordedTVHD\Images\Backdrops\258171][!MCSeries!273477462.jpgOut of memory. at System.Drawing.Image.FromFile(String filename, Boolean useEmbeddedColorManagement)
at RecordedTVHDService.Service1.ResizeBackdropForThumbnail(String imagePath)
That does sound like a file permission error. There's definitely plenty of free space on the c drive.
When you say you deleted the folder when reinstalling, did you delete this folder?
(It also might be at C:\ProgramData\RecordedTVHD - the ProgramDirectory is hidden by Windows by default)
Try uninstalling, deleting the directory above, and then reinstalling. I'm guessing you meant the one in the Program Files directory when you said that.
