I finished up fixing the last few bugs for PowerPlaylist 2 for Windows Media Center in Windows 7 and posted the installer and source to http://www.codeplex.com/powerplaylist. PowerPlaylist adds a start menu strip with up to five tiles to Windows Media Center in Windows 7. Each tile represents an audio, slideshow and / or visualization combination which will start when the tile is selected and is highly customizable by the consumer resulting in a highly personalized Windows Media Center experience.

Also included is the PowerPlaylist Editor which makes it really easy to modify the start menu strip name and individual tiles.

Enjoy…!

Hi,
I have one question regarding image slideshows. I asked that in several forums and there was no answer. Maybe you will be able to tell me why Vista and W7 Media Centers still cannot rotate pictures in accordance to exif data? Is there any chance, is there any fix, anything?

Hi raadoo -- automatic rotation of pictures based on EXIF data has simply not been implemented.

Thanks for reply.
There is still question why hasn't been implemented? It's so easy to do it and it's fundametal feature. We're talking about media center and pictures are still kind of media, aren't they?

I just installed Windows 7. I really like some of the new features of Media Center.

However, I miss the old way Media Center used to start up. I prefer the old sound and animation. The new startup is too long and cheezy.
