Hey Guys,

Has anyone managed to get DW2.0.7.6 running on Vista? I have it installed, but it seems that it can't write back to the .xml files so none of your settings get saved.

WIs DW still the preferred choice for watching live TV, or are people using something else?

Cheers

John

You can try running the installer as "Run as Admin.." from the right click menu.

I prefer it on a PC's since it's quick and simple, I suggest that for HTPC go better with something like DNTVLive maybe.

There's an installer? I'd just been unpacking the .zip file from http://mediapix-australia.com/htpc/DigitalWatch/ and copying that into the C:\Program Files directory. Can you post the link to the latest installer version please Bear?

Cheers

oops, no, when you run digitalwatch.exe for the first time it registers the DS filters and sets up the settings files. Delete the dw dir and reload from the zip and run digitalwatch.exe as administrator is what I meant to say. Nice thought though, I might see if I can make one.
