Any developers out there want to take on the challenge of getting WMC to work with MadVR?
If it's even possible?

I long ago set up WMC to play non-WTV files with Media Player Classic + MadVR (although I haven't used in in years). It may be possible to play (non-DRM) WTV files with MPC+MadVR, but I never tried it.

I am pretty certain you can't use WMC's native player with MadVR. Definitely can't play back DRM protected content while using MadVR (nor, most likely, live TV).
