Important note: This method is to port ONLY the schedule entries, and NOT other settings such as the recorded TV location, recording history, NOR the existing recordings themselves.
Note: programdata is a hidden folder in the root of the OS drive. One way to get to it is by typing %programdata% into the Start | Search box and then hit Enter.
At the end of the setup, all recording scheduled entries found in the recordings.xml will be imported into Media Center.
The indexing of the Guide can take a while, so please give it some time for the scheduled entries to show up under Recorded TV | view scheduled. You can also verify whether the series are imported successfully by checking under Recorded TV | view scheduled | series.
I could not find RECORDING as a file or a folder. But I mostly needed the location C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\eHome and I found there three lose files. Counter.mem, MCENDIndiv.hds and mcepg2-0.db and copying them over to the new install seems to have brought at least part of the information over. The Recorded TV | view sceduled | series clearly shows them in there now in the new System here. Should I copy everything from the ehome folder to the new system? They were both Windows 7 Ultimate 64?
Thanks though I think this has done it.
