increase media center tuner limit.png

If you are a Windows Media Center user the chances are pretty good that you’ve already heard of My Channel Logos. With this beautiful addition to Media Center you’ll see logos for each of the channels when viewing the television guide. It’s one of the most popular add-ons for Windows Media Center, and the developer has done a great job of keeping it up-to-date.

It gets better though. The developer of My Channel Logos also has a second tool that he whipped up, but will probably be of interest to a much smaller subset of people. TunerSalad is a one-click solution for doubling the number of allowed tuners (analog cable, CableCARD, ATSC, NTSC, ClearQAM, DVB-T) from 4 to 8.

I’m guessing there are only a handful of people out there that actually need support for more than 4 tuners. At this point a lot more of you are probably streaming or downloading shows rather than recording them directly from a cable/satellite/antenna source. Well, I guess you have the option to bump it up should you need to go that route.
