Contribute to the Wiki! Seriously!

Do you use Media Center? Of course you do, you are on TGB.tv. That means you probably know a thing or two about media center as well. If you have the ability to describe something in media center, like "Oh, I use My Movies, I think I could describe what the functions of the software are." or "I just spent an hour researching remotes- maybe I can write a bit about it!" Please take a bit of time and start adding to the wiki. Link is on the homepage. We could really use more articles.

In case you are wondering how to make your wiki-editing experience easier, there is a rich text editor that allows you to make a Wiki Page, without having to know the Wiki language. Just click on "[<textrichditor>]" or " [<rich_editor_new_window>]"

Just read the WAF entry...awesome! I actually read it aloud to my wife. She responded with one more comment i am considering adding. She said, "Once you have achieved a reasonable WAF, leave it alone."

Where's the fun in that? :lol: My wife is convinced I just like messing, so that we get it nicely setup, and then I play....

I created a wiki a while back on the old site on how to convert TV series DVDs and Blurays to WTV. Would like to contribute it here but, really don't know what category I should add it to.

i'd recommend putting it in the 'How to' section for now.

That's actually a good point you brought up. Now that the windows expert zone is dead, we should look into porting over the stuff they did for their wiki. Let me look into this.

This is my first contribution using wiki so hopefully I used the correct formatting.

I added how to setup Network tuners for InfiniTV PCIe6 on Windows 8.1. I'm also currently adding to the Remote Streaming section. : D

Also any update on some way to post WMC add-ons/theme files?
