Thank you. I had expected what you say and wonder if you could suggest an external program which I could consider buying. It is so annoying to think that if I had decided to stay with Windows 7 I would still have the facility I am trying to get. I found it so useful before and having now spent £99 for the necessary upgrade to 8.1 and buying a dongle for another £60 to get Media Centre activated I find that I now have to spend even more money to get back what I had before, for free. Is it any wonder that everyone I know who has gone onto windows 8 regrets having done so. Microsoft have much to answer for and I am now considering going for Apple.
