I'll just be holding out with WMC for (hopefully, assuming the guide data is okay for that long) 2-3 years, and hopefully be able to reevaluate then.

To this question, I would assume that at this point the majority of people still using WMC are doing so for DVR purposes. If one doesn't need live TV and is instead just playing back local media,...

I wonder if part of the reason is that they also want to get rid of Windows Media Player too. I mean, if they're replacing even things like calc.exe with a Universal app equivalent, it doesn't seem...

Well, this now makes two devices I won't be updating to Windows 10, my Surface and my HTPC (not that anything about the Windows 10 interface made it seem like it'd work on my HTPC anyway):

Yeah, I'm looking through my settings now, but it looks like they got rid of that option once they took the feature supposedly out of beta.

I can't remember as I'm not at my console at the moment, but did they remove the option to turn off suspend in background stuff? I remember at launch, that was a beta option that you could toggle,...

Not that this feature is out yet, but to clarify a little bit, it will be a separate app from Xbox One SmartGlass simply titled "Xbox". Hopefully, by launch, all of the features of SmartGlass will...

Also, the game doesn't always cooperate with Steam Big Picture mode, in my experience. The first launch kept crashing until I ran it from the regular Steam interface. More importantly, my GTA...

Apparently there's an undocumented trick I didn't know about that they use to work around this in NES Remix. Instead of making it configurable in this game, they ALSO map the NES B button to X on...

I didn't realize that they brought NES Remix to 3DS, but got that today as a platinum reward. Drives me absolutely crazy that for the Mario stuff they force me to use B and A instead of the better Y...
