On this week show is Microsoft MVP and Media Center developer Andrew Cherry. Andrew made the trip to my office in Manchester and we talked about his new application “TV Library” (download a free beta), an application that expands the TV library functions of Media Center. We also talked about developing for Windows Media Center and contributing to the MediaCenterSandbox forum. I have email in to the show and news items.
