Hi all,

WGS is starting to look into the creating an add-in section for Windows Media Center add-in's. There are a LOT of them out there in the wild. And it is going to be quite a daunting task to discover them, try them out, and add them to our add-in section.

So this is where you come in. We could use your help. Got a favorite or two add-ins you use and find you cannot live without in WMC? Let us know right here in this post! Even if it is one you tried and hated! ;)

And if you are a WMC add-in developer, we would like to hear from you also.

Thanks in advance for your input. It is the users that make a web site and it's forum great. The community of users at WGS is one of the main reasons why I joined WGS originally.

Okay, here are the add-ins I currently use

myMovies, but I think you know it

dvrms editing
TV TOOLBOX beta 4 no expiration date from http://mcedev.com/Pr...ec-d7bac9a8b3b0

Internet Radio
Webmedia http://www.mcesoft.n...m...&Itemid=167

TV Series
TV Library http://www.digitalli...brary_1_0_0.zip currently no expiration date
but this requires some tweaking, info can be found in
http://thegreenbutto...ShowThread.aspx, more specifically check http://thegreenbutto...ost/217972.aspx and http://thegreenbutto...ost/205928.aspx
xml data needed for this app can be created with TVCollection Manager 1.03 http://benwoodring.s....live.com/blog/
and date setting in windows should be US/UK style to work with TvLibrary_1_0_0.

1) Lifextender - http://www.lifextender.com - this is a great commercial removal tool (uses either comskip or showanalyzer if you have it installed)
2) MCEBuddy - http://www.mcebuddy.com - this is a great tool that both removes commercials and converts the DVR-MS files into whatever format you want (WMV, DiVX, H.264, etc.)
3) MCE Standby Tool - http://slicksolutions.eu/mst.shtml - this is a great tool that takes care of the S3/S4 issues that all Vista Media Centers have! It has tons of options for putting the PC back to sleep, and it works great!.
4) Heatwave - http://thegreenbutto...ead/276418.aspx - awesome weather plug in for Vista Media Center.

Note that all of these are supported on both Vista 32-bit and Vista 64-bit.

Enjoy!

Steinway
