Vista RC2...

October 14, 2006 | 1 Minute Read

Got it installed, and 90% setup. Seems quite good, smooth, and stable. Very pretty too...

Only had three issues - it didn't want to setup while connected to my TV, and also that it seems that media centre shuts down when you connect to the machine by remote desktop:

Windows Media Center
Windows Media Center has been shut down because it was running in a mode that is not supported
<FONT face="Courier New" size=2>over aremote desktop connection. Please restart Windows Media Center to correct this issue.


Really quite annoying, as it will kill any TV recordings you've got going if you connect to it at the wrong time.

Last issue is that it seems to think that i've only got two speakers connected to it, when I've got it connected to a surround sound system... Oh well, I'm sure there's a way to make it work - just got to find it.

Once I've got it sorted, I'll post a pretty picture to make you all jealous <IMG alt=":)" class="emoticon" src="/images/emotions/emotion-1.gif" border=0>.
