How to enable TV ratings under parental controls in MCE

If you don’t have TV Ratings under your parental settings in Windows Media Center, most likely is because the COM object that implements that functionality is not installed with your TV turner driver, in the case of Hauppauge, if you install the WHQL driver then you will loose TV Ratings, if you install the retail driver you will get TV Ratings. The reason is that the retail driver includes the file hcwxds.dll.

For NVIDIA, that dll is NVTVRAT.DLL and for Emuzed it is EZRATING.DLL
