This mod looks good and I have one enhancment request.
When I'm viewing Live-TV, it would be nice to be able
to change the channel up and down.
Also, Where is the source code for the ocx. I was
hoping to debug and contribute.

    Thank you for the nice words Anonymous ;)

    I haven't found a way to get the keys pressed on the remote
    while video is running, so for now changing channels wile in
    Live TV is impossible.

    I'll go ahead and post the source code for the Delphi OCX I've
    made. Look for it in the CVS later tonight.

    We would sure like to have you on board.

    I've just added the Delphi 7 source to the CVS.

    Sorry, I wasn't trying to be Anonymous. I examed the ocx
    and it appears to have two methods.
    DeleteFile - I assume you pass a the path to a file and it
    will delete it. And if the file can't be deleted, I assume
    that it throws an exception.
    ChangeChannel. It requies the channel number, and a path
    to the snapstream executable.

    Pretty straight forward.

    Here is where I'm confused. In order to make this thing
    work, I had to create a batch file that looks like this:

    net stop MVPMediaSvc
    net stop MVPMedia
    net start MVPMediaSvc
    ..\MVPStart.exe

    Should I be doing a net start MVPMedia. WHy do I have to
    run MVPStart to make it work?

    It has something to do with user rights. I'm here trying to
    translate some directions from danish to english, so the
    names may not be perfect.
    Go to your service management in the administrative part of
    the control panel. Find the MVPMedia and MVPMediaSvc
    services. Under their properties and log on enable "Allow this
    service to interact with the desktop".
    I hope that helps.
