HTPC

Show Analyzer Beta now with .WTV support

logo Tonight on the Entertainment 2.0 podcast, Josh Pollard and Adam announced that Jere Jones posted in the chat room during the live podcast stream, that there will be a beta release of Show Analyzer available some time this coming weekend that will have .wtv support. So head over to the Show Analyzer forums and keep and eye out for the beta release.

For those of you who are new to windows 7, and have been using Vista Media Center and have been using commercial skipping software, you would be disappointed to know that the new .wtv extension in 7MC is currently not supported by the available commercial skipping software.

Now that Jere is working on adding .wtv support in show analyzer, us 7MC users who are holding off on going to 7mc full time because of the lack of commercial skipping, it now is only a matter of time before we can now get full commercial skipping in 7MC.

About the author

Josh Shenkle

Five+ year veteran media center user. Over the years I have built over 20 media center pc's whether it has been to upgrade an existing system in my setup, or to build a media center pc (HTPC) for friends or family. My other passion besides HTPC's and Media Center is Home Theater. After purchasing my first home with a blank slate in the basement, I completely finished it off, building a home theater with a 120" front projection setup and 7.1 surround sound system. So between Media Center and Home theater that is what you'll find me talking about here. Like Adam Thursby, between the two of us are probably the only Zune users you'll find. I started out with an iPod nano but eventually found my way to the Zune and the Zune software and never looked back. Also like Josh Pollard I too am a mobile phone/smart phone gadget nerd. In my "day job" one of my job responsibilities is to test out new phones, specifically windows mobile phones, and test them out with our exchange server and trouble shoot end user issues. I am also a Blackberry convert as I recently got a Blackberry Storm for personal use and absolutely love it! I am a huge forum troll, you can find me on AVSforums, TGB, Missingremote, Hardforums, and even the AU media center forums. I like to help out where I can when it comes to HTPC's and media center in general, so if there are questions to be had, I try to answer them the best I can.
