TV Archive in WHS2011

Has anyone noticed that the TV Archive capability in media center under WHS 2011 now only shows "Archive all recordings automatically"? In WHS V1 there was an option to select which programs or series get archived and at different preset settings (Zune etc.)

 

I know WHS 2011 transcodes on the fly using silverlight but I had still planned on using this functionality...

Wow!

If this is true this seems like a huge step backwards for the functionality of the WHS 2011 MC Connector software. I want to be able to have the choice of what shows I do or do not want to archive. All or Nothing does not equal Choice. :(

Uncheck "Archive all recordings automatically" (emphasis mine). You'll then be able to select which shows you want to archive. They did take out the ability to auto-transcode video to different formats however, but I just use Air Video to do that for me on a file by file basis.

Yeah you're right, by archive they mean "move file". It appears to now just move the recorded tv file from the media center pc to the home server recorded tv folder.

 

Wonder why they took away the preset conversion options...?? I know there are alternatives but I kind of liked the simple media center UI they had before...

 

Hey Daleo1 - what are your thoughts? I know you had talked about liking this feature awhile back!!

With the new windows phone 7 app, it would have been great if you could convert the WTV file into a file that the phone could stream through the app. This is unfortunate, I hope they add this feature back in a future update.
