Transferring CQC to new computer
#10
Well, I have things working back the way they were on my older PC. MyMovies is working fine (although I haven't tried the new 5.x Beta release), and movies are launching fine now. The final problem I had was getting my NAS mapped drives, where my movies live, to connect properly when restarting my PC. Turns out there is a bug in Windows 7 that results in mapped drives not reconnecting on reboot and startup, and the workaround is to use the NET USE command to reconnect them or do it manually. For WAF reasons, I wanted it to be turnkey, so I arm wrestled my way through NET USE and put together a batch file to do the reconnection at startup.
Next wrestling match is going to be to try to used the WinActivate command in HotKey to ensure TotalMedia Theater is the active/focus window when watching a movie. Once in a while there will be something else stealing focus from TMT and,
while the movie plays fine, there is no control via keyboard commands or Media Center remote IR commands until you click on the movie with the mouse. Another WAF issue.
Thanks for the help from Dean!
