Win8 WMC is still acting weird.

    I couldn't get WMC to work. I used to have go Express setting and wait for a long time to get the Channels added. But, now, I cannot even get it anymore. I used to watch MSN Channel for movie trailers, but now, I cannot get it to work. It is always strange that the WMC from XP still have to go thru those strange invisible steps to get the channels. And now, it doesn't even seem to work anymore on Win8.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Those web channels disappeared from my Win7 WMC a few months ago.

    Oh, so it is basically dead? I don't even know why we want WMC anymore, except playing DVD in WMP. Because looks like getting an Metro App makes more sense than WMC web channels. And WMC feels so old.

    @magicalclick: I use it extensively.. as do some I know. I have a coaxial ariel plugged into the back of my rig and WMC picks it up and adds all my channels. I can then use my phone as a remote control. Works really well! Smiley 

    We can only see a short distance ahead, but we can see plenty there that needs to be done.
