Updating windows media center
It supports up to six TV tuners connected simultaneously, global TV standards like digital and HD, has plenty of video and audio format support, and can even act as a DVR for your favorite broadcast shows.
Windows Media Center works with devices known as Windows Media Center Extenders, such as the Xbox 360, and can stream both live and recorded content to these devices.
Unfortunately the software wasn't kept up to par over the years, and dropped H.264 support that was present during its beta days. In another words how to keep MC completely inactive unless I myself run it. I think it eats my resources and it even tries to turn on my TV card (LED is on) even if I don't intend to watch TV. My question is how to disable MC completely to perform any actions in the background while I work with my PC.System Manufacturer/Model Number Asus N73SV OS Windows 7 x64 Ultimate SP1 CPU Core i7-2630QM Motherboard Intel HM 65 Memory 6 GB DDR3 Graphics Card Nvidia GT 540M / Intel HD 3000 - Optimus switching Sound Card HD Audio (Intel Azalia/Realtek) ALC269 Monitor(s) Displays LED flat panel Screen Resolution 1920 x 1080 I already disabled the update on trya icon but it appeared again and not for couple of seconds but lasted for hours.The worst is that I caught it trying to turn on my TV card in the background even that I hadnot scheduled no TV related task in Media Center.
