I know there are a lot of NAS lovers here, no knock against them, but I prefer having a server online. I like the client backup feature of WHS (and WSE, which I use now), and other features such as...

I only have Windows 7. I don't like 8 (or 8.1).

For TV shows, I don't use those tools, I've tried them and didn't like them. I use MCEBuddy and Comskip. I also transcode the files to MP4 so that...

Go to stablebit.com and download a copy of Scanner. I think you get a 30 day window for free. Also post up what NIC you are using, full model number.

I doubt it's a WHS problem, I think you have a...

I also waffled, but I made my commitment on Monday, and over the weekend bought an Extend. Loving the Extend so far, and look forward to what SD has for us in the future. I didn't really need an...

I'm going to take the HDHR recommendation a little further. Get the HDHR Extend. The video is already transcoded, the recordings are transcoded (much smaller), and it makes using other devices much...

Same problem here. I stuck with MB2 for over a year after they pulled the MB2 download off the servers, just because it WORKED.

Emby is getting better, and I agree with you MKANET, but we seem to be in the minority. Not sure why, Plex has come a LONG WAY in the last few months. So has Emby, but it seems like they are playing...

Interesting that this has been your experience. I tried ServerWMC and the Emby live TV integration, and it was terrible. I have a high-horsepower server, all Cat5e hard wiring, etc., and it just...

I noticed yesterday that Plex pulled the trailer and extras from the internet for one of my movies. I'm impressed!

HTPC is great for recording live TV, playback of TV and movies, and that's about it. Once you get to streaming, you are better off with a Roku 2, Roku 3, or Amazon Fire TV box. But, as stated before,...

The only time I have ever had any issues streaming from WHS (v1 or v2) were the following:

I've been using WMC on Windows 7 since it was first released (actually before that too) and I do not have any of the issues you have described. It seems to me you have an issue that can be resolved.

Because Netflix picture quality in 7MC is absolutely horrible. Unwatchable for me. And there is no Amazon Prime integration in 7MC.

You are correct, I really only need the one XBOX, or 1 each of the other two.

My wife used to do that too. She said "What's the difference"?

Like you, I removed all the SD channels. Guide Tool made quick work of it.
