Our opt-in usage telemetry shows that in July, Windows Media Center was launched by 6% of Windows 7 users globally with the heaviest usage in Russia, Mexico, and Brazil (frequency and time). However, most people are just looking around; only one quarter (25% of 6%) of these people used it for more than 10 minutes per session (individual averages), and in 59% of Media Center sessions (by these 6% of users) we see almost no activity (less than a minute or two of usage). TV was the most common scenario we observed, and not surprisingly, traditional media (DVD and CD) are less common (and declining over time) than streaming and file-based content.
For sure WMC is an old style app, with a lot of redundant functionality (music, pictures, etc) that is now handled by metro style apps, so what we need now is a cool, clean metro TV app.... Anybody?

if you open an administrator cmd prompt in windows 8 ( right click on the windows start logo, select 'Command Prompt (Admin)'
then type the following to register the addin in windows 8 Media Center
CD\windows\ehome (press return on Keyboard)
registermceapp c:\progra~2\dvblogic\dvblink\dvblink_addin.xml (press return on keyboard)
you should see it say success and the addin will now be installed as normal in media center under extras and works for me.
Hope this helps
