  • Installing the Windows 10 Preview disabled Media Center, and Microsoft has confirmed that it will not be available in Windows 10 :-(.
  • Fortunately my main DVR runs SageTV and the WMC DVR is only used as a secondary DVR in my bedroom.

I use a metro pcs hotspot because charter charges almost $60 a month for cable internet that is marketed at 30mbps- which is laughable.
