    In case Meluvalli Or Graznok's around.

    I enabled Graznok's RDP patch again successfully last night. When i RDP to my main desktop i can watch TV. It's also pretty weird seeing my main desktop behave as a server and the laptop I'm connecting from not take over the existing console session and instead get a new one.

    On trying an extender to connect got it going as far as saying 'connecting' with the white dots along the bottom flashing along but then crashed there in mid connect. I also had some weird graphics anomoly on my desktop where my desktop backgroun image half way through changed to a repeated pattern of blue squares like there was some graphics card issue.

    So i quickly dumped the Acronis image i had of everything so far working minus the RDP patch back on as the Mrs was back wanting to watch all her soaps!

    Everything TV wise, Recorded TV, the guide etc is working fine. I've installed Emby and tried playing a simple MKV as I've heard Windows 10 has some more default Codecs than 8 but it failed to play. So looks like i need to install Shark's Advanced Codec Pack and Tick the box for extenders in it. If that all works out then I'll finally be back to normal.

    Then i need to work out what upate to avoid that kills it and how to use the Microsoft tool which allows you to avoid certain updates.

    Would be great if people could get Ceton Echo and Linksys Extenders to work though.

    Best Regards

    I wrote many time it. If w12 installer fails, just instal v8 and uninstall it (with its own uninstaller). Then install the v12.

    The v8 link in your last post was not working the last time I tried it. It takes you to Mega, but when you try to download, the file is unavailable.

    Is there a new source for v8 ?

    Does it serve any purpose to install V12? I have just uninstalled v11 and would like to test v12 to see if my xbox360 connect? Or are we still far away from a solution? If yes, where can I find the install files for v12?

    Sigh, over the tons of posts I saw, I didn't see that, I have v11 running solid so I'll try to remove it and try this process...

    Anyway, Extenders where do we all stand now ? Did we get ANY 3rd party Extender working on WMC on Windows 10 ?

    Try running the DCA in my signature.

    Re-do tuner drivers and select WMC during the install.

    Hmm, I was referering to WMC v12 downloadable file for installation...similar to the "WindowsMediaCenter_6.3.9600.16384_x64_v11.7z", the link above is something else...:confused:

    OK thanks.
    Successfully installed WMC v12 but the Configuration error occurred while trying to connect the xbox360 to the WMC, so no difference from previous achievements.:(

    You didnt say anything about xbox when you asked about v12, all you asked was "Where is it?" I didn't realize that you expected v12 was going to magically make your xbox work. There is a little more to it than that.

    Did you even read Meluvalli's instructions?

    Basically the only way to install version 12 is on an install which has had no previous media center. There should be a way to fix this.
