MCE – Launch Live TV

One of my day 1 settings that I would like to have is the option to have the media center launch directly into Live TV.

If you have used Media Center before then you know that by default it launches into the Start page. From there you have to choose what you want to do with Live TV and Recorded TV as just two of a number of options.

Since I am trying to replace the cable box in the living room, I need the experience to be very similar to what we have now. When my wife goes to watch TV today she turns on the TV and then turns on the cable box. At that point live TV is on and she can choose to either continue watching live TV (channel surf or guide surf) or choose to watch recorded TV. The media center needs to provide a similar experience.

So I went to The Green Button and asked my question. I got two responses that look promising. When I have a solution that will work through an extender I will post my results.

  1. I am using the world’s best online TV viewing software. Spend a lot of time at the computer. For this reason than to watch tv on pc software is required. Thousands of HD channels, TV shows, series, movies all in one software. I searched and really did a very good choice. Don’t pay cable television fees for one year. You still pay them at once and watch tv free from your computer. Once you get use to life.
