    Is there anyone that can tell me how to add Powerdvd and its icon into the more programs section?

    I have searched and googled and there seems to be very little info on how to do this, other than on the Green Button site, and that appears to have been down for a while?

    Thanks

    I assume that you want Power DVD to appear in More Programs within MCE, it does NOT run in there, just sits in Windows and is available to MCE.

    POWER DVD WILL NOT EVER APPEAR IN MORE PROGRAMS. It runs in windows and gives you DVD playback. MCE should be able to use the codec of Power DVD and display DVD in the MCE window. Power DVD is NOT launched in the MCE enviroment.

    I have a number of programs that I can launch from more programs inc PowerDVD, DVBViewer etc
    It still runs as a standalone program but via media centre
    You need to create a MCL file and stick it in the media centre startup group
    I got this from within this forum but cannot remember where so try searching for MCL files
