MCE Backup 2.0 (for Vista Media Center + MCE2005)

with 8 comments

Ian Dixon has just released a (beta) update to his MCE Backup tool – 2.0 (v0.5) – which now supports Windows Vista Media Center!
This is a very cool app – and provides some really useful management/backup features for those of you playing with Media Center (and invaluable if you are migrating/upgrading machines from MCE2005). By the sounds of it Ian had to do some fancy footwork to get everything working under Vista’s new security model.

Some Features (taken from Ian’s Blog)
  • Backs up TV channel assignment
  • Backs up Scheduled recordings and series recordings
  • Backs up recorded TV to local drives, or networked drives (via UNC paths)
  • Backup up an additional folder
  • Has its own schedule engine for automating backups
  • Displays the status of critical Media Center services
  • Command line and GUI version available, 10 foot version coming soon
  • Works with Vista and XP
  • Can be used to transfer settings from one Media Center PC to another

Requires .net framework 2.0 to be installed

And don’t forget to leave Ian some feedback too (nb: this is the best way end users can help addin developers get their apps out there and working for everyone – so don’t be shy).

The other thing that amazes me with this app – is that Ian already has a FT job, produces the Media Center Show podcast and the Media Center Extra Vodcast – so I’m wondering if he maybe has found some magic way to squeeze an extra 10 hours out of each day. (either that or he has a team of elves working away on some of this).
