  • Re: Commercial Skip on Vista (

    Oh crap. Yes, I get the same error local or extender. The addin just can't initialize mcestate. If you say it should work in Vista, then it must be x64 that's breaking it. I thought .NET was supposed to be architecture independant?? Making full use of my Athlon 64 was my big reason for even bothering...

  • Commercial Skip on Vista (

    Ooookay, I have my MCE box running well in Vista (x64). Vista has been pointed to the existing recorded TV and schedules from XPMCE. All good. After installing DTb, fixing the registry settings to point to "Program Files (x86)\DVRMSToolbox", registering the CommercialXkipAddin and starting...

  • GraphEdit, you've changed.

    I was looking through the platform SDK for Vista last night when I found the new version of Graphedit. I was pretty excited, thinking I'd finally get some useful insight into the issue I've been having with the graph that WMC publishes. My excitement was shortlived however, when I saw that the new version...

Now that I'm not messing as much, I barely see it. I just need to figure out how to enable startup programs that require admin rights...

  • StreamBufferSource object?

    I got some help with my problem trying to cast the playback graph as an IGraphBuilder in Vista, I still can't cast it as an IGraphBuilder, but it will cast as an IMediaControl which has necessary functionality to get a collection of the filters in the graph.

  • Cannot access meta data on a currently recording file in Vista RC1

    The following code worked on XP and still works on Vista if the show is not currently recording. IFileSourceFilter sourceFilter = (IFileSourceFilter)ClassId.CoCreateInstance(ClassId.RecordingAttributes); sourceFilter.Load(filepath, null); The error message is -System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException...

  • A More Robust Commercial Skip

    I spent tonight working on a more robust implementation on the work around published last night to get the Commercial Skip add-in working. While I'm still not thrilled about approach (not nearly as elegant as the IGraphBuilder approach used in MCE), it does work and now does not require the user running...
