Re: Win10 WMC replacements using HDHomeRun Prime recommendations

forgot to upload todays beta

I cant seem to find today's beta release for windows. The link here (viewtopic.php?f=119&t=20613) refers me to a build from February. I noticed the mac build is up but I don't have a mac. Thanks.

Re: Windows 10 View | Protected Channel hard crash of app

certain drive models cause stability issues with the win 10 app. For example, when I used kingston hyperx predator drives, I ran into a lot issues across every pc that I had them installed in. When I switched to samsung 960 evo drives, the problems went away.

Re: auto delete of old episode
