Run MCE client on the PC which is also the server?

Postby tricky » Sun Jan 17, 2016 3:36 pm

Hi All,

I'm running DVBlogic server on my HTPC and everything works fine in Kodi, but I would like to use WMC as client.

I'm running Windows 8.1 with both software packages installed:
DVBLink Server 5.5.0 12217
DVBLink TVSource 5.5.0 12217

I've added all tuners in WMC, it did complain about the PlayReady and didn't find any channels. I found that you can sync the channels, but I don't have any DVBlogic installed in my Extra's section. When I'm tying to install the client it saids that I already have the server running on the system.

My questions:
Is it possible to use MCE on the PC which is also the server?
If so, How do I get the DVBlogic in my extra section?

Thank you very much for your help!

Yes its probably the most common solution to run both on same Win PC. You should not install the network client, only Dvblink Server. I would try to just install server one more time.

If you will just use WMC as client, you can change settings to mc_recorder and gain usability in regards of record from Guide etc.
