MP1 MP2 Migrating from WMC DE
Hi. Network tuners can be shared even on the same PC (done it often while testing different software, I'm using SAT>IP tuner that are similar to hdhomerun tuner but for European DVB). But you can not use them on both systems at the same time ofc.. Means if WMC is using a tuner (e,g, for a scheduled recording) MP can't use the same...

The display of the day in additon to time is subject to the skin that you are using. WMC is not displaying the weekday, but a BlueVision skin does.

Per HTPSourcer's recommendation, I decided to ditch MP1 and start over again with MP2. At first MP2 wouldn't work at all, but after uninstalling MP1, and MP2, and all the plug-ins, and rebooting multiple times, and more uninstalls, I finally got it. Yay! I don't have any hair left on my head, but at least I have MP2 working! I can...

Or is it just a case of adding backslashes to the "Custom paths and filenames" format, to add sub-folder levels? E.g. %title%/%title% In addition, how can the year of the Movie be added to the filename e.g. "Ponyo (2008)"? Again, this is required by Kodi for scraping purposes, to differentiate between different remakes. Naming...
