Aaron Stebners WebLog : Registry settings that can be used to configure advanced Media Center options

„There have been a couple of posts by myself and Matt Goyer listing some of the registry keys and values that TweakMce changes behind the scenes to configure advanced options within Windows Media Center.

I decided that it would be worthwhile to post all of the registry keys and values that can be changed via TweakMce in case you are running a beta build of Windows Vista and cannot install the current version of TweakMce, or if you would like to change these Media Center settings without needing to download and install TweakMce or resort to a registry monitoring tool such as RegMon to reverse engineer these settings yourself.

„Welcome to the beta page of the MCE Tuner Extender! MCE Tuner Extender is a tool to extend the number of tuners that you can use in Microsoft Windows Mediacenter.

Standard you can only use 2 analog tuner cards in Windows Mediacenter, but I always felt the need to use more tuners and didn’t understand why Microsoft didn’t want use to use more than two analog tuners.

With MCE Extender you can use more then just two Tunercards, and configure as many tuners as you like. „

„A FUSE-Compliant File System Implementation Mechanism for Mac OS X

MacFUSE implements a mechanism that makes it possible to implement a fully functional file system in a user-space program on Mac OS X. It aims to be API-compliant with the FUSE (Filesystem in USErspace) mechanism that originated on Linux. Therefore, many existing FUSE file systems become readily usable on Mac OS X. The core of MacFUSE is in a dynamically loadable kernel extension.

How FUSE-compliant is MacFUSE? Well, enough so that many popular FUSE file systems can be easily compiled and work on Mac OS X–often out of the box. Examples of file systems that work have been tested (to varying degrees) include sshfs, ntfs-3g (read/write NTFS), ftpfs (read/write FTP), wdfs (WebDAV), cryptofs, encfs, bindfs, unionfs, beaglefs (yes, including the entire Beagle paraphernalia), and so on.“
