I still haven't found a "WMC Replacement" that can let me watch DRM content in multiple rooms other than WMC and Emby to watch all my movies (at home and away).

you might also want to remove/disable MSE, if you have it. MSE is an open door for unwanted updates also.Wilky13 wrote:Yeah, I've turned off auto update on my Windows 7 HTPC. I have 2 Xbox 360s and an Echo. I plan to ride this setup out for as many years as possible.

They've made a number of design decisions that will likely discourage many WMC users - like no program guide grid, relying on a cloud server to do anything with the DVR, and not supporting shared tuners when viewing the same channel on multiple devices.
With EPG123, and assuming the Xbox 360 extenders keep working, WMC could continue to work for quite a while. And for those looking for something close to WMC in the near term, TiVo's Bolt (especially if they release a 6 tuner model) may be the closest we can find to a WMC replacement.
