Parental Controls RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone else think that music, movies, pictures, etc should have an option to Rate. For example I want all my collection in one media center pc, I want to access my movies and music from my extender (xbox 360). But at the same time I want others to use it like a 7 year old brother. Even if I have parental controls on on the computer (vista) or the xbox 360 it only blocks allready rated dvd/cds. I should be able to put ratings on musics or videos that I have riped or bought to my library.


    On another note please add an extender on all windows vista machines. It does not make sense to have one central pc with your media if you can only use an xbox 360 or other piece of harware you purchase. You should be able to turn on a laptop for example, open windows media center and have all you media avaliable.


    Also if I use mpg video files on vista the previews in the icons show. When i open media center they do not, there should be an option to add your own pictures for a "album art" like you are able to in mp3s or other audio files.

  • Rating your media is a good idea.

    You shouldn't have to do anything special on Vista machines; Windows Media Player 11 on Vista should be capable of consuming streamed media from WHS (though it will probably be easier to just use the shares).
