It looks like MS fixed that annoying message (it never started back up for me).

I'll have more to follow on my HDHR2MXF project... just want to see what happens next week. Might have a pretty easy path for those WMC users that are also HDHomeRun DVR subscribers. If not, then there are still options.

I use wmc on win 7 with epg123 and prime. It is my understanding that it should not be a problem to keep on using after MS stops updating it. Am I wrong?

I only use the win 7 machine for tv.

No, you are right. With EPG123, you are covered and have the best and most complete guide. I'm just working on another alternative that will be limited to HDHomeRun owners. It will not be as complete as that provided by EPG123, but will be functional.

Thanks,

The one thing that worries me is when your redo the setup in wmc, it tries to download something (even when you selected no guide). I was worried about it but I disconnected it from the internet and after awhile it said no internet available and will use old setup files.

I was wondering will it be a problem if you reinstall win7 after the updates stop?
