Windows 7: Windows Media Center - Composite Video Without a remote

Windows Media Center - Composite Video Without a remote

Hi all

Windows media center has IMO one potentially FATAL flaw -- If you have a card that has a composite video input Windows Media center actually recognises this but you can't enable it as the program always asks for some stinking remote.

What's really irritating about this is that you can SEE the input in the preview when setting it up but you can't get any further than the B/S prompt for the remote.

This makes the Media center unuseable if you want to plug in composite video say from Old fashioned Video recorders, other portable DVD recorders (so you can record to hard disk) or other devices like camcorders, video senders etc etc.

Who on earth came up with that idea at MS should be taken out to the Village square at 2.00 AM and left in the Stocks for 24 hours.
