Looks like Media Center is dead with Windows 10. Those with Windows 7 and 8.1 can still use it, but there is no guarantee when or if guide data gets discontinued, as per Media Center TOS, Microsoft can remove it at any time, which includes taking out before Windows 7 or 8.1 hit EOL. I am sure those who still want to use Media center once the data has been removed can use a 3rd party source. Media Center is also the only HTPC app that can be used by Time Warner as they unfairly copy flag everything but locals in an attempt to make you use their DVR or to stop TiVo's old Multiroom transfer protocol.

Here is an option you can use instead of using Media Center for Protected content. It is said to be quite a nice product, and can use non WMC extenders as well.



Considering how Media center is now dead, this might be the only PC based option for TWC subscribers. If you donate $100 over your current level, you get 5 years of EPG data. Looks pretty cool, and you can use an Android TV box, and use a standard Q-NAP, Windows, MyCloud, and hopefully Synology. Would love it, if FreeNAS was supported as well.
As you all know, there was a notification, saying that we would migrate over to this new software on April 24, and so we did. This new software is very powerful in many ways, and will get better over time. Change can be a bad thing for some of you, so I have tried to make it so that it would have some level of familiarity. I still have some minor tweaks to do, but the site is live and up and running.

The biggest new features are the resource manager and the Gallery. You can now post photos of your own Home Theater setups, photos in general, or even your favorite Youtube videos. The other is a Resource Manager that could be used for Articles, or even the ability to put some of the archived content. Archive link is coming soon, and this software has been a learning experience, as everything is so different.

Biggest change of them all is the new responsive theme. This new theme responds and automatically format to your devices screen, so that there is no need for a mobile theme or app.

For feedback, please post your feedback to http://www.sandiegohdtv.org/community/forums/new-board-feedback.41/ as this is the place for all new board related issues.

I worked hard to get this migration going to where it is now, and I am grateful on how well it works (so far). Hope you guys enjoy the new site and a new chapter in this sites history.

Edit: There is a cool feature where there are facebook like alerts and even a Facebook style Like feature.
