Tool to set your EPG download time


After all that about QWORDs in the registry from managed code, I went ahead and just finished a small application that allows you to edit the time that MCE goes out to download guide updates.

    Thank you for taking the time to crete it. I have other things scheduled at night, so this helps to keep things straight.

    Peter – great tool, one question:

    After setting the guide download to occur at 6am every morning, the PC no longer goes into standby.

    I ran a disk monitoring utility and noticed that ehRec.exe is doing a lot of reads/writes to the Recorded TV folder on one of my local disks. Thing is, I haven’t watched TV, recorded or live, since I did a hard reset of my machine a couple of days ago. Any thoughts?

    From the log:

    ehRec.exe:3484 QUERY INFORMATION E:Recorded TVTempRecTempSBE

    ehRec.exe:3484 OPEN E:Recorded TVTempRecTempSBE

    ehRec.exe:3484 DIRECTORY E:Recorded TVTempRecTempSBE

    ehRec.exe:3484 DIRECTORY E:Recorded TVTempRecTempSBE

    ehRec.exe:3484 DIRECTORY E:Recorded TVTempRecTempSBE

    ehRec.exe:3484 CLOSE E:Recorded TVTempRecTempSBE
