Version 1.0.4 posted

Guide Page
-Adds the ability to select from multiple recorder sources
-Improvements to the look of the focus image
-Change wording for Remote Potato credit

Slide Deck
-Allows you to select from multiple recorder sources
-Added other showings slide deck (please note this functionality is not working correctly just yet)
-Adds description of which remote potato server the recording is on

Recordings page
-Pulls recordings from all configured servers

Settings
-Adds setting to apply colored background to guide items based on the program type
-You will no longer be prompted about savings settings if you did not make any changes when you hit cancel or back
-Adds the ability to setup multiple remote potato connections (You do this by separating each server by a ";")

This version adds the ability to select from multiple recorder sources. To enable this you need to add a second server to the login settings page as described above. The secondary server (or third, or fourth, etc) must use the same port and login settings (for now). Once you've done this my addin will pull recordings from each of the servers and prompt which server to record things on. The first server in the list is considered the main server, meaning the listings and channels that show up are pulled from that server and recordings are pulled from all. If you only have one server setup you should not see any changes, except the addition of the host name on the bottom of the slide deck

I finally got around to installing this (I know.. ..shameful) and just wanted to post to say how fantastic it actually is. A really brilliant utility, and so handy for multiple Media Center setups.

Well done! This thread gets an immediately sticky.

Will this allow remotely starting/launching a recorded show on the local TV? Basically, I want to control the TV when my son is watching... starting/stopping recorded shows while I'm in my office.

thx

No it can't do that. At this point it doesn't do anything with previously recorded tv as there are already good apps for that. Unfortunately, I don't know of any that do what you are suggesting.

I'm very confused... first you say there ARE apps that do it, then you say you "don't know of any" that do it.

Software like xbmc allows you to do such things.
Byt I don't know any way to make windows media center do things like this. Maybe addons like MyMovies, but that one is for movies and not for recorded tv...
