I don't want to discourage you but, you might be better off trying to get a 360 working instead...
Yeah, I know. Hate to admit it, but it appears to be too big for my skill set. A positive response is difficult to find. Hopefully, some of my efforts here will at least apply to the 360.
What Version of Ported WMC had Win7 in it and how did that work out for you guys?
Truth be told, I would LOVE to see you be able make other extenders work, it would be epic....CHEAP, tiny extenders, bring it on !
When the company who makes the OS and the product we are trying to hack, disables a big feature, there must be a VERY good reason. There was many big discussions when 8.0 WMC (pre-8.1) and Non-360 extenders, some big named programmers/hackers attempted it and we never saw a result. This was over a few years and they gave up....
If your talking about Windows 10, there has been No versions running the Windows 7 version, they were all ripped from 8.1 (if you check that thread, I started on that thread on page 2, and have been with it all along). It started out ripping from early builds of 10, when it was discovered that guide data had a problem and didn't work at all, they ripped the files from 8.1...to what we have today.
Even if you put a Windows 7 version of Media Center on Windows 10 and got it running, it would not change anything. Non-360 extenders are based off a highly modified version of RDP, it's old now, 8.1 and 10 changed this, this would NOT BE EASY if even possible. I did look into this myself for a while and thought OMG...no way...Trust me on this.
If you have access to a 360, I would try with that, a few people have said they got a connection but, it would drop after 5-10 min... Would love to see progress with that, you would be a big hero in that thread if you can figure that one out..
If you don't have access to a 360, go to craigslist or a local pawn shop...You can find the older white 360's going for $25-50..... Cheap.. If the DVD drive does not work, who cares ? Yea know ?
