    Good Day everybody.

    I have recently built myself a HTPC with Windows 7 as the OS.
    I have everything running and it is working great with the exception of recording TV shows. What I am finding is that Media Center will only record shows when it is running. I do not necessarily need Media center running all the time - I have Hulu Desktop, as well as some other apps that I use to watch/listen to various media types.

    My Question is - Can Media center be set to run as a service, so that scheduled programs and such will record, and just save the files to the designated folder, then I will have another program run comskip and comcut to trim the excess commercial baggage that wastes HD space on those files.
    That way when I get home I can just watch the shows without the crud.

    So Can Media Center run as a service, if so How?

    Thanks
    Andrew

    Viper does show a Media Center service. You will have to scroll down to find it. Be sure to read all the great info he gives for services, and use with caution.

    By the way - a belated welcome to the Lounge. It's nice to have another Coloradoan join the fray.
