SYMPTOMS

You put the computer in standby or hibernate, and then you resume the computer. In this scenario, when you try to watch live TV in Windows Media Center, you receive the following error message:

Restricted Content – Display Driver

If you wait for 30 seconds after you resume the computer from standby or hibernation, and then try to watch live TV, the problem may not occur. In other cases, you may have to restart the computer to resume live TV playback.
