Even in standard Vista WMC (no TV Pack), I once tried to stop automatic updates by disabling mcupdate in Task Scheduler but was surprisingly unsuccessful. This link might be helpful - especially if you don't mind automatic updates when the PC is awake: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/12 ... puter.html. (My PC only "sleeps" when I shut it down, which saves even more power.) In WMC under Settings > General, have you scrutinized Automatic Download Options and Optimization?SteelWill wrote:If any of you guys run into, or better yet solve, the random wake issue I'm getting I'd love to hear about it. My machine woke at 3AM, 5AM, and 7:20AM yesterday...both mcupdate tasks are disabled, and guide updates are disabled in WMC.
An issue of my own: I'm afraid I had a minor crash while exiting Settings > TV > Guide > Edit Channels:

If you need to edit a particular channel (maybe your crappy cable company gives it no channel identifier so you need to manually map it to the right guide listing), it's probably best to do so directly in the guide by right-clicking the channel at far left.
