Keeping Windows Media Center in step with changes from your cable company

I’m always happy to see posts from Pete and value his opinion.  This blog post is no exception–very informative and worth the read.

We’ve been using Windows Media Center as our home’s main DVR for several years now. We have basic cable service, and over the past few months, my cable company has started to switch some of our channels from analog delivery over to their digital service.

This type of change has become more and more common for cable companies over the past year or so, as a quick search on (TGB), our community for Windows Media Center enthusiasts will show. What’s more, there are a few different types of changes going on with cable providers, and people are turning to TGB to help keep their Windows Media Center PCs in step with the changes.

Here are some of the most common scenarios we’re seeing, and some of the options you have for keeping your Windows Media Center PC in step with any changes your provider may be making.
