Much to my surprise I'm really liking Windows 8.1. I decided to install 8.1 pro after a [new] Samsung 840 Pro SSD meltdown and took to it immediately. I installed WMC and have recorded TV working fine with internal tuner. However I cannot get any of my .mkv files to show up "There are no items in this library yet...", despite adding and removing the same folder multiple times. I've also tried another HDD and folder by copying files over, still no luck.
I followed assasin blog (way out of date, unfortunately) and installed Lav codecs and splitter because it was more simple, with my Win7 machine I had previously used Shark codecs. But this shouldn't have anything to do with files not going into the library, should it?
Thanks in advance.
