Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@nateb Is there a list somewhere of which remotes and buttons should now work with the Xbox One or Windows 10? Thanks.

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

After one month of trying HDHR DVR, we have a verdict: we are keeping the Servio and replacing WMC with HDHR DVR. We are however only doing so due to the fact that Microsoft is discontinuing the native EPG guide as we think that HDHR DVR is currently a step down from WMC which we think is better loo...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@NedS @nickk @jasonl It is possible that the crashes reported earlier happened when attempting to delete a recorded program that was already being in the process of being deleted because the programs that are being deleted do not disappear from the list of recorded programs right away. For sure it i...

@jasonl Sadly the issue of the interface freezing upon deleting a recorded program occurred again.

@jasonl I just turned on early access. We will see if it happens again within the next few days (as so far it has happened pretty much every other day). Thanks.

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@NedS the freeze/crash happened today again. Maybe a useful piece of information is that my wife deleted a recorded program A at about the same time when another program B was starting to be recorded. The program A that she wanted to delete did get deleted, but then the interface, instead of updatin...

Re: Is is possible to use Kodi with HDHR addon on Xbox One?

@signcarver Thank you for your prompt feedback. I will stick to SD's software then. Too bad because I like how the user interface of Kodi looks like.

Is is possible to use Kodi with HDHR addon on Xbox One?

Hello I see that a version of Kodi is available in the Xbox One store. Can that version be used as a client for HDHR DVR service running on a Servio? If so, how do you install and configure the necessary add-on? When trying Kodi from the Windows 10 store, I see one add-on named PVR HDHomerunClient b...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@NedS @nickk To go back to the topic of what needs to be addressed with the HDHR DVR, according to my wife, on the Xbox One the user interface frequently freezes after deleting a program from the Recorded view by selecting the trash can on the right of the program. When this happens, the only way to...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@foxbat121 You are right regarding Windows 8 Pro not coming with WMC but as you guessed during a limited period of time in late 2012 it was possible to upgrade from the standard version of Windows 7 (which included WMC) to Windows 8 Pro for $39.99 and get a "free" Windows 8 Media Center Pack product...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@foxbat121 you are right that I used the wrong name for the pack. I should have written "Windows 8.1 Pro Pack" (which included Windows Media Center) rather than Media Center Pack. Still, $99 on top of Windows 8.1 which is good enough for most home users (compared to 8.1 Pro). Looking back at old inv...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

They wrote "Starting in January 2020, Microsoft is retiring its Electronic Program Guide (EPG) service for all versions of Windows Media Center." Why did they begin the sentence with the word "Starting"? That suggests the retirement might be gradual isn't it? (They could simply have written "In Janu...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@foxbat121 I have only one Prime so I need to minimize the possibility of tuner conflict and pick one solution. If the native guide for WMC were not being discontinued I would just stay with WMC. Now... it looks like the native guide is back with data until the middle of January?!? So does anybody k...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@ppilot Thanks. So at this point it seems to me that the two best possible paths for our household are: 1. Continue to use HDHR DVR on Servio and Xbox One, or 2. Switch back to WMC on Windows 8.1 and Xbox 360 with EPG123+HDHR2MXF for guide until Windows 8.1 reaches EOL. Hopefully the next release of...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

@ppilot Have you switched to EPG123 to get the TV guide for WMC on Windows 8.1? If so can you describe your experience with it?
