Media Center is Dead


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.
