Add-in's for Windows Media Center

5 posts in this topic

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

TV Series

TV Library http://www.digitallivingsolutions.co.uk/do...brary_1_0_0.zip currently no expiration date

but this requires some tweaking, info can be found in

http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/1/144287/ShowThread.aspx, more specifically check http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/post/217972.aspx and http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/post/205928.aspx

xml data needed for this app can be created with TVCollection Manager 1.03 http://benwoodring.spaces.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://thegreenbutton.com/forums/thread/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!

    • So I currently have Windows Server 2012 Essentials (running in a Hyper-V VM) and am thinking about migrating to a Windows 10 server. I have 12 disks or so on the server all configured via Storage spaces. Can I simply connect these disks up to a Windows 10 install and have all the files appear? From what I have read the storage space info is all on the disks and it should work, but has anyone here actually tried it and succeeded. I have 10+ TB of data and the easiest way to get it to the new server would be to just connect the disks up.   Thanks, -Bill
    • Did you try CC cleaner or a disk clean up program? It seems to me that old files merged or not are still existing, do you have external storage that you could export the known good files to while you reformat and clean the 6TB?
    • Hello Is it possible to clone an external HDD containing the server backup to another external HDD? The external HDD doesn't have a drive letter, so how can I clone the drive?  I have two external drives in a Dual Dockingstation (2 drives), which has a button to clone from A to B, but I don't trust that solution too much..
    • I have a whs 2011 server, which has been running fine for years, however since I have updated the client pc's to windows 10 anniversary edition I am constantly getting a services not running error on clients, having checked the services, all are in the correct state, I have tried restarting some of the obvious ones, but with no success. if I select the fix option in the alert list for the error, it clears, but then returns after 20 mins or so. Not sure what to do next to solve this.
    • well it took a great deal of time but the repair made it possible for the cleanup to go pass the 14% strange however is that even though I told it to delete all the bad backups and merge the good ones it did not clear up any of the disk space. And adding all the good merge backup sizes together shows there should be the normal 6Tb free available. So the failed backups are gone the good backups are all merged but the disk space remains at 212 Mb. not sure how to tackle this I am going to look at it again this next weekend to see if I missed something.
