Can't view TV or videos in WinXP MCE 2005

I am trying to view live TV or videos (e.g. WMV format) with MCE 2005, which
was upgraded from MCE 2004, but when I try that my monitor flickers as though
it's trying to sync the video to my monitor (I do sometimes hear the sound
from the TV channel or video selected). After a few seconds, MCE 2005
freezes and I have to kill it using Task Manager.

Media Player 10 works fine in standalone mode. I also do not have a DivX
player installed. Anyone have an idea of what might be happening and how to
correct this without reinstalling MCE 2005?
