Windows 7: A few questions/minor issues

30 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1

I don't have a "Recorder Storage" option in the settings menu, so I went to Media Library and clicked Recorded TV. I've already tried this before. It only lets me add or remove (but in my case, it only lets me add since I can't remove the default location - which is Recorded TV in the Public shared folder) folders for it to search for recorded TV, not actually change where it records. It even says at the top "..but WMC records TV only to the location specified in Tasks > Settings > TV > Recorder > Recorder Storage" ... and if I go there, it only lets me pick which drive to store it on... C or D (I have an external HDD).. not where in the drive to store it. It even says so here: Set recording options in Windows Media Center ... how the hell do they not let you have the option of choosing where you want your records to be stored..?

Alright well, if no one can give me any solutions, I guess I'm just gonna have to leave my computer on all the time then. Windows 7 is great and all... but seriously, they really f*cked up here.

Win7 x64 Screensaver Questions/Issues. No 'Stretching'?
Couple of questions for the experts here.... Windows XP's Screensaver had some very nice touches that do not seem to be replicable under Windows 7. If one had a photo selection, under XP that set could be used as a slideshow for screensaver, and the images would be cycled in a 'corner to corner'...

Apologies if these have been covered, but I'm unable to find solutions as of yet. 1) Default directories - some applications keep your most recent folder as the default, many do not. Example of the latter: Yahoo Mail (for attachments) when using IE8 always goes to Desktop, no matter where you...
