Hi there

I've spent the day getting Windows 7 up on my HTPC.  It hasn't been easy but I'm nearly there I think, just need to set up the EPG properly and deal with this one thing:

When I go into my Videos folder within MC, and choose folders to watch, I choose around 100 or so shared folders from my WHS.  When I confirm this the MC app slows down for a few minutes but then comes back saying that the folders are being added, and that I can go off and do somethign else while it adds in the background.

Thing is, after around 45 mins I go back into the folder and it's just showing 50 of the WHS shares.  No more. 

The same thing happens if i add library watched folders from Windows Explorer too.  I can only get 50 folders to show in my MC and WMP, etc. 

When this happens I go back in to the library management screen and I can see that the rest of the folders that I had previously selected are no longer ticked.  So i tick them again and try again - but none of them get added.  I'm stuck with the first 50 folders and no more.

If I add the root share, say \\tv, this adds fine, and I can go into it in the Videos menu and see all my WHS shares that way.  But I'd rather not have a two step process to get to the videos, and this did work fine on XPMCE and VMC. 

Any ideas?

This part of Windows 7 is still a bit buggy, especially if you mix DVD files with DIVX, AVI etc.
