Just picked up th thread again,glad you are both sorted, you can now check any time and get update from the MPC... Just a shame the cloud gods have not been co-operating!!


 


Beats having to hack the ssystem.ini files, though its not difficult to do so.


 


Cheers

Damian - would this be better in the guides area, perhaps pinned?


 


Considering the fact we're being buzzed so often it makes sense to not vanish in general chat. :)
