You would need both. EPG123 is the software, Schedules Direct is the service providing the guide data. EPG123 downloads the guide data from Schedules Direct and imports it into WMC.

Great! I figured it would work on true Windows drive letters, but I wasn't sure about Ext2FSD assigned drive letters! Now you can check the user's entries in boxes 1 and 2, and pop up a BIG WARNING...

Is this AutoIt code by any chance? To me it looks like VB, but I found it at a site called AutoItScript.com.

In any case, it looks like a translation of the above C code:Local...

Got it, and it works! :D

Yes, it's always been possible to screw up manually, so you have to be careful when browsing or entering those drive letters in the first place! But at least now, it won't...

I was surprised that the DVR+ used CEC at all. The spec has been around for some time, but this is the first time I've ever heard of it being used.

It's interesting that the remote wasn't sending...

OK, I figured out how to reproduce the bug I encountered with DVR+ Lister mixing up the source and destination partitions. These steps are for the Beta 3 Merge version.

I doubt iView and similar products would raise as many hackles, as they aren't seen as direct competition to the DVR+. The iView is more of a set-top box that can also make on-demand, daily, or...
