Version 2.6 Released

by Damian on July 23, 2011

in News, the popular online content aggregator for Windows Media Center that I highlighted a while back, has just released version 2.6 of their software. Here is the scoop on what is new:

We have just released 2.6!  This version adds some features that make it easier to add TV shows and adds a new set of optional themes for the TV and Movie displays, as well as a new BETA of a TV Show search feature.  Here is a complete list of the additions/changes in this release:

Channel Builder– New feed finder that makes it easy to generate a feed to a show without needing to manually find the RSS for the feed.  Just enter a show name and click the feed finder button and the Channel Builder will try to automatically generate the feed.


TV Shows - Now you can optionally use an embedded version of the Hulu player when viewing Hulu shows in… this allows SecondRun to automatically put the show in full screen mode. NOTE: the embedded player has a lower resolution than the standard Hulu player and doesn’t work with Hulu Plus content.

TV Shows - New optional Metro/XBox style theme for the TV Show view.  This view features a single row of larger posters making it a little easier to browse through your shows. You can still however still use the standard interface from the previous release.  The interface that is shown is controlled by a simple check box in the channel builder.

Movies – New optional Metro/XBox style theme for the Movie view.  Just like the new TV Show view, this view uses a single row of posters making it easier to browse through your movies. You can still however use the standard view from previous versions as well. The interace that is shown is controlled by a simple check box in the movie manager.

TV Show Search Feature - We have added a new feature that is currently in BETA that allows you to search for TV show content directly in Media Center without adding the show to your channel builder.  This makes it easy to access online TV shows that are not in your guide or TV show view.

Settings – We have moved the 2 guide processing links from the start menu strip and moved them into a “Settings” option.


The new update is available as a free update to all existing users… if you have previously purchased just login to our customer area and download the latest version.
