HTPC running 32bit and using wmc- advice for settings

Hello
Need advice for Windows 7 32bit settings to optimize for running WMC.
I just completed my first htpc build with help from this site and I'm looking for advice on optimizing Windows 7 settings for using WMC to stream media, music, dvr, basic media use.


Thanks again for any/all replies.

    My advice - bin WMC and use XBMC - far better HTPC system IMHO

    Yeah, I like XBMC, but I want dvr capabilities, and from what information I've read WMC is the way to go and XBMC doesnt support......yet that I'm aware of.

    I have the Silicondust hdprime tuner-from everything I've learned it runs great with WMC.

    Thanks for the suggestion. If anyone else has some advice, please chime in....

    Thanks rw, there is a 'little' info on this site isnt there... :)
  5. XBMC just added PVR support this week with the release of Frodo. I haven't tried it yet, so YMMV.
