Santa Delivers Early Goodies for Aussie (and UK) Media Center Users..

Pete Brown over on the Media Center and Me Blog asks Media Center users on TGB what ‘single feature you want Santa Soft to add to Media Center for your holiday gift’..

Luckily – Aussies and UK users who have been battling it out with (or already uninstalling) TV Pack 2008 – have been paid an early visit from Santa already – in the form of the December 2008 Vista Media Center (TV Pack) Commulative Updates KB957209 + KB959485 .  This blog entry has all the download links (some of which are not quite enabled at time of posting) – and KB957209 is the really important one for me (and other DVBT/EIT users) as it fixes the problems with broken and forgotten scheduled recordings… 

Congrats to the Media Center team for getting these issues sorted – and I look forward to these patches in the next Windows 7 beta (which is currently inherits the TVPack2008 problems)…

ps – there’s of course no love yet for 3rd party EPG services – however the Aussie EIT data is slowly improving (except for SBS) – and seems to be working fine for series recordings at least..
