What is Windows Media Center?
Windows Media Center (WMC) turns your computer into a home entertainment hub, compiling media from your computer and the internet (plugins required) into one interface. You can even use WMC to record TV (TV tuner required). Unleash the full power of WMC by connecting your computer to a HDTV and using a compatible remote to control all the action from your couch.
Windows Media Center will be no longer updated with Windows 10 release.

I Used this for quite a while a while and liked it. eventually I Noticed that it would just stop recording and sometimes erased stuff. I eventually notice that it would stop recording at about when it got to 11GB. I eventually found out that it stopped when it it got to that size because it was using that space for it's live tv buffer or something like. Seriously who needs a live tv buffer of around 11GB these days, when most TV Channels don't even get to 11MBPS.
I need to record my cable TV using CableCard with no fee for the guide. I can do that now with WMC, but I want to upgrade to Win 10, and that will blow it away.
This worked pretty good, but I would have problems with it locking up my computer every once in a while. When it was working I would use a separate plugin that allowed me to upsample my videos when I played them on my TV. It made them look a lot better, so for that I liked it, but otherwise I was not very impressed I had better luck with windows media player or any other player.
