It's in the program itself. Launch MediaBrowser, goto settings, and there's an option to disable online fetching or something like that (can't remember the exact wording). That will make it only take metadata that is stored with the media.

There should be no problems with that computer running it. (A least I wouldn't think so...)

Thread: HTPC


There are no other background apps minus Microsoft Security Essentials.

I like the integration of WMC too. With XBMC, I am using IR Media Suite and it works pretty good for the most part.

One thing that is a little disappointing about all of these media center apps is that none are anywhere close to perfect. I guess I'm being way too picky though lol.
I'm betting it's the caching going on in the background. I can't think of anything else it would be.

Yeah the little things bother me too. But then I remember that these programs (MediaBrowser, XMBC, etc) are free. I can't expect them to be as perfect as a program a huge company spends years developing and then charges me for it.
