There are at least two ways that I'm aware of to set up your recording preferences. When you first set up WMC you can go in and set up your recordings to start XX minutes early and XX minutes late. ...

WMC doesn't do 4K so perhaps the upconversion is causing some problems. Try setting the TV to native resolution. If you haven't calibrated the TV then that's the first place I'd start. Just about...

Yes, I've heard about it, but since I don't own any Apple products it never came to mind. Just because they call it the apps store doesn't make it exclusive to Apple. I've always considered it a...
