January 2020, what could possibly go wrong?

It's a good bet the guide will no longer work...EPG123, issue solved.

It's also a good bet that new activations of Media Center and PlayReady might not be allowed...too bad, you should have installed earlier, issue unsolvable.

What other issues exist that could 100% kill the ability of Windows Media Center to continue to be used with cablecard tuners and copy protected channels?

Are there Windows XP Media Center editions still purring along without problems?

Here in Germany the upgrade of OTA TV to HEVC (HD-H265) encoded DVBT2. 2 years ago, killed off WMC, the German website closed down too. I was not a hardware issue, for example Media Portal copped with the change with a software update!

boy, those Windows 8.1 users--who are still supported--will be awfully mad.

And of course, every Win7 computer in the world will simultaneously explode.
