January 2020 is soon here and what to move on to? No more WMC!?! I purchased a Channel Master CH7500TB1 DVR+ as a backup extra in late 2015 and am rudimentary satisfied, but not "The Replacement" of HP's Z5xx models. I have had the Z555, Z558, Z560, and Z565, with the Z565 still up & running with the Z558 as backup. I bought a 64bit HP Win7 desktop for another room and use the original Z5xx remote control with an HP IR Receiver (Model number OUV40013/00), installed 4 AverMedia Volar Hybrid Q tuners (Model number H837), for replacement keyboard of the HP 5187-7112 (or equivalent), I first tried a GearHead mini-keyboard with touch pad (Item number KB3800TBW), but was more satisfied using an IO Gear keyboard (Model GKB635W) with trackball. Spoiled I guess from using the HP keyboards, but the IO Gear w/trackball a great, lighter replacement, which I find more exact than the touch pad (no IR receiver found for original keyboard). Hard to leave WMC with the time and HOARDS of money invested in them, but every age has it's era. Heard of some French site where WMC can be placed on WIN10, but do not read or speak French, where installation with French is made easier. Shall I wait it out until the next generation of Windows is released (Win11?) and attempt French WMC installation on it, or just enjoy the quirks involved with Channel Master's DVR? BTW, I upgraded the HP Z's to WIN7 without any problems doing so and they work fine, just slower than the newer HP 64bit if used on websites. Just chiming in with some finds and most likely the HP's Z5xx / WMC epitaph.
