I have been in correspondence with Advent. He advised me that he has renewed the hosting for his site and it will be back up shortly, BUT the future of Media Center Studio is bleak.

Bottom line - he says he is unable to support it any more. So, it may or may not reappear on his site, and if it does it is unlikely to undergo any development or support.

An alternative is probably the best bet right now. Time to look elsewhere to customise our menus. This guy has an interesting product over at >http://www.patchou.com/projects/media-center-themer/, but I don't think it modifies the menu. Maybe he can be persuaded to add that functionality.

If anyone does stumble across a MC menu modifier - be sure to let us all know.

I personally haven't used that tool yet as I have Advents media centre studio installed and done what needed, however Patchous media centre themer does support adding and removing/moving menu items >MCT Documentation – Modify the UI

What are the chances he would release the source code under an open license or something so that others can pick up where he left off. A lot has been put into the product as far as creating compatible themes and what not it would be a true shame to lose such a great product.

Hey bill, noticed on your other forum that someone was asking for an alternative to MCS for editing menustrips. I just happen to know of one created by mikinhosoft, Start Menu Plus, if you’d like to pass it along. – DemonSeed

This is super bad news..

I am rebuilding my HTPC this weekend and was poking around to make sure I had all the latest versions of my addins when I found this.

MediaCenter Studio was a bit quirky but makes Media Center look the way I want. I will be brutal without it.

Thanks Bill for the tip on how to back it up, I did not know I could even do that, I would have been in trouble tomorrow when I found out MCS was MIA.

Hi,

My name's Tres. I'm from the US, and registered for this site specifically for interest in Media Center Studio/Advent Media Center.

This application is great, and I was wondering if we could take a collection to bring the site back online and development back up and running.

Nothing compares to this plugin for customizations to WMCE, and the "online" installer breaks any future people from using it if the hosting is down.

If someone has contact with the developer, can we make him/her this offer?

-Tres

Hey Guys

Here's another link to download MCS

>MCS Manual Install (*.zip)

It's a manual install not an EXE file but it does the job.

You don't need to instal anything, just place the unzipped folder anywhere and run the exe, works without issue
