With the death of Windows Media Center and the announcement that Intel and AMD's latest processors will only work with Windows 10, I'm left wondering if there alternatives to reading the Recording metadata (Show name, Episode name, Original air date, etc) without Media Center.
Currently, I am unable to view this information on my windows 10 laptop or Server 2012 box. I am forced to use my HTPC, which is connected to the TV, just to view these details.
I know there are hacks to enable Media Center on Windows 10, but that is a last resort. I don't need any of the other media center features, I already have the HTPC with Windows 7 to handle those tasks, but I don't want to disrupt the TV viewing when I want to review the extended properties and see the media details.
So what I'm looking for:
- Compatibility with Windows 10 and Server 2012 (both preferred, 1 is acceptable).
- Access the WTV extended properties on Windows 10
- Lightweight - I don't need any other features, just want to see the metadata for the recording
- Accessible from the file Properties window, just like in Windows 7 (not a necessity, but would be really be a big benefit).
