      Suspect bad SATA cable. Starting over using DVD drive cable instead. SSD now detected in BIOS #htpc2012

      @rothgar Nice! I will use #HTPC2012 when tweeting HTPC. Are you streaming content via wmc to Xbox?

      I’m all done with my #htpc2012 work today. The goal is to cancel cable next Friday. Still need to hook up tuners.

      @Salcedo_George we’ll see if there’s demand in the house to bring cable back. If there is, I’ll probably be interested. #htpc2012

      Continuing work on #htpc2012 I have settled on just using 7MC instead XBMC because Netflix integration is better. Now trying to customize

      mceRemote2vlc is going to work great with MediaBrowser http://www.arenddeboer.com/mce-remote-with-vlc/ #htpc2012

      Here’s how to disable the “subtitle” in vlc that shows what file you’re playing http://forum.videolan.org/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=94071 #htpc2012

      I have a few extra minutes so I’m working on my #htpc2012 computer. Still trying to get it finished for Friday

      Sata power came unplugged. That’s 2 problems that have been fixed by just plugging something in #htpc2012

      I can’t say enough good things about SiliconDust @HDHomeRun_US tuner. Best tuner I’ve ever purchased #htpc2012

      @mobiDevJC @OldSkoolVWLover This is My #htpc2012 setup. 2 yrs old. Lenovo mini USB KB decent. Weak range – shitty http://twitpic.com/a1ao45

      I seriously forget how easy and awesome WM7 is. The channel editing is the best of any media center.

      I picked a hell of a weekend to cancel cable. Why didn’t anyone tell me the #xgames are on?!
    18. rothgar
      I’m very impressed @Revision3 has a WMC plugin. This just made cable cutting even easier http://revision3.com/leanback_windows #htpc2012

      Trying to get my network drives to automatically reconnect after restart. They keep showing up as “disconnected” #htpc2012

      [email protected] Please help! your lean back plugin won’t install on my 720p TV. Requires 1024×768!! http://revision3.com/leanback_windows #htpc2012

      TunerfreeMCE installed! Configuring anthem it’s time for a break. Maybe watch some more #xgames before I cut the cord. #htpc2012

      Trying out @mymovies_info for movie management on my #htpc2012. The default movie player leaves a lot to be desired.

      Little did I remember I bought @SecondRun last year. Oh well, $8 is still a bargain #htpc2012
