Windows 7: Win 7 Media Centre Power Up Function...

Win 7 Media Centre Power Up Function...

Hi all,
I am in Sydney, Australia (if that matters lol)
I have been using Compro DVT 4 for recording TV via my Compro T750 tv tuner card and found it ok but it won't scan digital channels now?
So anyway it has a feature to turn the PC on to record and then turn it off when it has finished so I can record when I am not at home, can I do that with Windows 7 Media Centre?

Windows Media Centre seems a more slick and better program I can record with it no problems but I really like the "power up" function of Compro

Welcome to the forums kblake.

Follow this link and I think this nice little
plugin MAY be what you are looking for:
Add a Sleep Timer to Windows 7 Media Center - How-To Geek

Maybe not? You want something that can turn the PC on also - not sure if this
plugin will work both ways and i guess sleep isn't exactly shutdown either
is it!

Good luck mate

Why wont the media player or the media centre play MP4's?
Is there a good reason why MS don't equip either the media centre or the media player with the ability to play MP4's. I don't see why they can't play them,and surely it would be in MS's best interest if they could play them.

Another Media Centre Bug...
Dual screens. One used under Media Centre (listening to radio or viewing a movie, or a recording...) and the other used for previewing photos with the native Windows Picture Viewer... Set the Picture Viewer into Slide Show mode and the Media Centre blacks out... :cry:
