I know this is dumb but do many of you use a Antivirus program on your HTPC? I don't download anything to it besides the XML guide. I was using AVGfree and it was slowing down my box a little. Just asking.

    Like any normal box really. The active scanning it uses would be too bad because of the file incrementation speed of recordings and there wouldnt be a lot of file access as its only using the one program. Ive just got Symantec corp server on mine running the other symantec corp clients in the house and it works nicely.

    yeah, i wouldn't think anything of it if you only download xml files to it.. to just schedule a scan every week.. or you could even scan every night.. or while you are at work.. sometime when you know you won't be using it and not worry about constant virus scanning.

    this coming from someone who didn't have any antivirus for years... so i'm a little more comfortable knowing what I download.

    Ok, have a good vacation in Egypt :) Me might have to tell @high to turn off the automated flag for privacy reasons. Also everybody could see I was in netherlands. I think the flag should be related to the country entered and shown ;)

    Did you see this thread ? The poster in that thread could not get MP's Schedules Direct plugin to work. I tried it on my test system (I don't have a Schedules Direct account), but I could not get it to work either. @framug mentioned that the plugins run no more than once per day, so that may have been my problem. However... I...
