iOS 9 was released to the masses on September 16, and for most Apple fans that was a good day. Unfortunately, if you were an iOS user who also depends on a Windows Media Center PC it wasn’t such a good day. That’s because iOS 9 broke one of our favorite Media Center apps: My Media Center. The app, from Ceton, allows you to completely manage your Windows Media Center PCs. With it you can see what’s been recorded, check out the guide, set up series recordings, and much more.
Unfortunately, mid-September is about the worst possible time for My Media Center to break. That’s because it has an amazing feature that we really love. It has a special section that shows all of the premieres that are airing on TV soon. With the big fall television season kicking off in September, that feature was sure to see a lot of usage.
While the app still hasn’t been fixed, there is good news for My Media Center iOS users. Ceton is working with the original developer of the app to fix it. There have been a lot of changes to iOS since the last version of My Media Center was released, so the upgrade is bigger project than usual. You can help though! Head on over to this thread at The Green Button for instructions on how you can sign up to beta test the app upgrades.
It’s never good to see an app break due to an operating system upgrade, but at least Ceton is working to get this one fixed quickly. We’ll keep you posted on when it’s been fixed.
