Windows Media Center is still very much alive and in fact has become inexpensive to implement. There is a plethora of off lease Win 7 machines out there starting at a hundred dollars or so.

I did say that using WMC on Windows 10 could be risky because future updates on that platform could break it. Forget all that my real concern is that for full operation we are temporarily left with an orphaned Microsoft solution while we are waiting for new software from SD. It would be nice to fire up a Linux solution with DRM support of course I don't think that's possible with Myth-TV.
It isn't orphaned yet, in fact you detailed the schedule before you said it was orphaned.

Since we can wait until 01/14/2020 for SD to complete their work, I'm not worried about it. And even then, it just means no updates to W7, I don't care I will just keep using it, if there isn't a better solution out at that time.

I am not going to attempt to put WMC on W10.

I basically don't do updates now as it is except for MSE. I'll cross that bridge when I get there if they stop providing those but I seriously doubt they will because it is on Win8 and Win10 (as Defender, I believe). In the past couple of years I've had a few MicroSoft Updates roll my way that ended up costing me time to roll out of (Concurrent RDP and GWX come to mind) so I'm not really very concerned about it.
