  1. Thanks for the review. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a negative review for My Movies.
    One thing that is still unclear to me is how the various components of My Movies work together. I do not have a disc drive in my home server and I only have an Atom processor, so I’m not really interested in disc ripping on my server. All I want to do is store my movies and TV series on my home server and serve them to my media centre – do I still need the WHS version of My Movies, or will it all run from the Media Centre?
    Thanks,
    Richard

  2. Hi Richard

    No, you don’t need the WHS version of My Movies to do what you want to do.

    You will need My Movies on your Media Center and also the collection management software as well.

    Then just have My Movies monitor the share on your home server for the media and thats it.

    I have the same setup but with the files stored locally on the Media Center, but it works just the same as My Movies just looks at wherever you tell it.

  3. I am glad to hear that you have had success. I on the other hand have not. I found bugs, installation problems, ripping problems and quality issues. I have also found the lack of support to be a deal breaker. I honestly wanted this to work for me. I was prepared to buy until I tried it out.

    I am using the My Movies for Windows Home Server 2011 Version: 2.00 Release date: June 28’th 2011. I ran into problems early so I started a thread to find that support does not exist for My Movies. I felt like I was I was not welcome on the forums and god forbid that I ran into problems.

    Here is my fair review from my experience with My Movies.
