    I want to do a clean install on my HTPC and wonder if there is a way to backup all of my Dscaler settings and then restore them after the refresh?

    Cheers

    I think you have to write them down mate, I don't think hanging on to the .INI file will save all the settings these days... could be wrong though.

    The only 2 places settings are stored are Dscaler.ini and program.txt copying just these 2 files should capture everything. Ini file copying is late 80's at best :) one day we might get into a 90's registry solution and then probably in 2020 start using xml.
