Nah, VM's don't allow recorded shows to work very well...dkrom wrote:What about running Win 7 or 8 in a VM for Media Center while running Win 10 as the main system? I was able to get MCE2005 running on a VM and it even connected to a tuner where I could watch recorded TV. Live TV wouldn't work since my tuner was too old for the machine I was testing it on.DavidinCT wrote:Thanks but, for a reason for me, I use WMC on my gaming computer with shared tuners. I NEED to go to Windows 10 because DirectX 12 will not be supported on Windows 7 or 8.1... and very important to gaming.mdavej wrote:Seriously though, I appreciate the effort so far and hope you can pull it off eventually. But I have yet to hear any good reasons why anyone would "upgrade" a perfectly good WMC system to Win 10. What feature of Win 10 is so compelling that it's worth losing WMC itself? From what I've seen, you sort of get the start menu back, which we've already had since the beginning with 3rd party apps, and it looks a little different. What other features trump WMC? Is it really just the "shiny" obsession as Richard says, or is there actually some logical reason that Win 10 and only Win 10 will satisfy your needs.
So, with a shared tuner, I can watch live tv and shared recordings, I can watch all my recorded shows too...
How's that for a reason ?
