This application allows the scheduling and viewing of television programs. If viewing recorded TV gives an error "MF_Media_Engine_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED HRESULT -0x8000FFF", please reduce the resolution in "settings" significantly as the MCE cannot transcode fast enough. The recorded TV also doesn't cater for DRMed recorded shows.
This application connects to a Windows Media Centre PC with the Remote Potato Server installed (see www.remotepotato.com for details on this server). For a better streaming experience, setup the Windows MCE computer with Media Sharing. Connecting via the Media Server Button give a more standard fully capable streaming experience.
Prior to setting up this application, please ensure that the Windows MCE and Remote Potato are both installed and working.
This product passes on the video stream generated by Remote Potato.
