TV Manager for Windows Home Server Now Out of Beta

Thursday, 4 September 2008 21:46 by Nick MacKechnie


This plugin lets you copy your recordings from a Vista Media Center PC or XP Media Center 2005 over to your Home Server for storage and management. With TV Manager, you can view your recordings stored on your WHS in Media Center as if they physically resided on your PC. Recordings can also be deleted from either the WHS Console or Media Center.

Since the beta, several fixes and additions have been added to the software, including the following, listed below.


  • TV Manager Service setting permissions.
  • Compatibility with limited user accounts.
  • Launch recordings straight from the Windows Home Server Console.
  • Changed how recordings were moved (to fix ghost file issue) but lost the ability to monitor progress percentage.

New Additions:

  • Added Media Center Extender compatibility.
  • TV Manager Add-In interface redone.
  • Experimental ComSkip feature (disabled by default)
  • Regenerate the Xml in case of cache corruption without tester.exe.

If you’ve been waiting for the final version before trying out this software on your WHS, you don’t have to wait any more: you can download TV Manager 1.0 from here and the documentation from here
