It's great to see you on the forums again, and I'll look forward to your guide...
I just converted to JRiver after:
XP's MC -> Vista MC ->7 MC -> Media Browser -> Media Portal -> XBMC -> JRiver
with a few interludes with Arcsoft TMT3 -> Media Player Classic -> HD PVR, etc...
I have always looked forward to and used your guides...
After spending the better part of the last week with JRiver, I'm sure you'll love it!
Other than the above mentioned TV support, I have found it to be an unparalleled solution to my needs, out of the box. If there's anything I can help with, please PM me here... Like if you're having trouble with WTV files, use the Red October with additional filters setting, change up the audio decoder to ffdshow and the video decoder to Microsoft DTV. The beauty of the JR stack is that this is simple to set up just for WTV (microsoft based) videos, and leaves all other formats set to MadVR!
I would love to see if you are able to get the HD-PVR from Hauppauge to work within the JRMC... Also, definately check out the Splashstream to tablet application of the Theater View in Obsidian mode... The browsing speed and quality of audio/picture is awesome...
Just a shame I'm gonna have to $ pay for it, but for me - these guys deserve it.
Looking thru their website at: http://www.jriver.com/purchase.html
It seems as though 1 license can be used on all of your home's computers.... per
Q: Can I install on more than one PC?
A: During the two-week period after you have purchased or restored, you can use the Install Key you received to activate the program on your other PC’s. You may use the program on your work PC and on your home PC's with a single license.
If anyone can confirm that this is the case, I'm in for life!
Always my best,
