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

I have both WMC and SD DVR running on the same PC using SD guide data right now. I'd continue to use WMC as a back up because I just found out my Super Bowl recording on FIOS 4K channel using SD's DVR didn't record at all. I have to manually start a recording once I found out and that's already an h...

Win 8 Pro doesn't come with WMC either. It requires a feature update with WMC license key. It is possible that if you upgrade from win7 with WMC, you get it for free.

IIRC, WMC add-on for Win8.x is only about $15 extra or so. Definitely not $99. That's the price of WIn8 Pro which is required version to use WMC add-on.

From what I read, EOL of Win 8.1 is only a year behind that of Win7.

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

Why not have both enabled and use both at the same time? That's how I setup mine to do. With HDHR DVR, you have more flexibility of viewing them (Xbox1, Win10 PCs, smartphones and tablets and Android TV boxes or TVs). But WMC currently still offers DRM recording and more remote friendly. I have two ...

FWIW...I'd guess that he hasn't made changes to it because it just works. Granted, he said he originally planned on Valve being an all-in-one solution for many of his other tools. If it aint broken don't fix it - for the purpose titled on the Missingremote blog post at least. Michael Welter (aka Mi...
