So let me start off by saying that I have an HTPC built on a gigabyte board with an amd phenox x3 black edition cpu. I have a ceton tuner and its all in an antec fusion remote black case.Running windows 7 using media center, remote potato and plex. I love the thing, I have had it for a few years and just love it. However, a couple weeks ago my media center was bogging down tremendously, no idea what it was I couldn't even navigate and when i could it was unbearably slow. At the time I had over 300 recordings on and thought maybe the indexing or something was slow? No idea I cleared about a bunch of recordings, just about all. I restarted a time or two and it started to act normal again. Well now I have maybe 40 recordings and it is happening again. I can't seem to figure out what it is. Does anyone know what would cause this? Nothing else on the computer is running slow, if i manage to minimze it the task manager is showing no spikes or high usage, everything else performs snappy. It is stictly windows media center. Storage shouldn't be an issue, i have a 64gb ssd for my boot device and run apps. and i have a 2 tb storage hdd that stores all my media.
I want this resolved. I also want to know if anyone knows of an alternative that will work in place of windows media center with Ceton without losing anything. Been looking around for as long as i remember and can't find anything fully compatible makes me sad especially since I read on here a little while ago that windows is dropping media center.
