Recording back to back programs with 5 min padding that gets dropped... and decent solutions?
How are you guys that are using MC7 coping?
(Spent the last couple hours reading about it but couldn't find any solutions.)
Been using Media Portal for the last couple years (because Vista MC couldn't record Freeview). Was sorta always temporary because I MUCH preferred MC interface. Anyway finally got round to using Windows 7 few months back and got stuck at deciding between Big Screed EPG vs GuideHound (no decent comparison). Anyway figured I'd actually try them both... So first night of recording stuff with my dual tuners and most of the stuff I recorded tonight missing start/end.
I could probably live with the not being able to record multiple channels on the same mux, and just buy more tuners.
Really happy with the MC7 interface. So much less work required to map keys, remote, front panel display etc (everything just works out of the box and is intuitive) and just find that everything just makes sooo much more sense than Media Portals way of doing things.
Assume most people in NZ using Media Portal? What's the distribution like - haven't had a very good look at the other contenders.
