Hi, my name is Damian, and I'm tech gadget addict! Although I always had some interest in technology, it wasn't until I got my EX470 and more importantly found, that my interest became an addiction. My goal, aside from world domination and to see the Mets/Broncos win another championship, is to set up the perfect digital home where all my media is available at the click of a button. When I am not writing for you can find me over at my blog at or follow me on twitter

So far I’ve avoid the MM 4.0 upgrade path because I fear what might happen to my My Movies add-in for SageTV. Can you comment on how well MM4 plays with that specific application?

LOVE THE NAME first off. I have been having some major issues with my HP mediasmart server ever since I upograded to my new PC with Windows 7. 1. It cant connect at certain times and the only way to re-connect to my new home PC is via hard Re-boot. Not to mention if I connected my remote HD into the server it tries to re-format it.
2.) Now I have the issue of having 3 copies of my media files everywhere.

How do I correct the connection issue and then clean up the de-duplication of my media files on 3 seperate HD….
Any help is appreciated…

Finally someone who spells their name correct ;-)

Sorry to hear about the issues you are having. Not sure what could be causing the issues as I use W7 with my WHS without issue. I would recommend posting your issue on the forums here and see if your issue can get sorted out.
