Zune Software automated interface to update DRM rights?

by tlh523 / March 1, 2008 2:16 PM PST

Does anyone know of an automated interface that will update the DRM rights of Zune content if they expire? I am a subsribed user and am using Media Center. Everything is fine until the DRM expires. The only way I know to renew the DRM is to maually find the song and play it using the Zune PC player...Media Center offers no integration other than posting a message...Not very useful

That was removed some time ago.

"Microsoft reserves the right to update your device anytime it is plugged in."

In previous updates, Microsoft has even removed significant features in its software updates. That quote from the EULA is why you can't call this a warranty issue.

Not the device

I am looking for a script to automate the DRM rights in the Zune PC Library not the Device. Currently, Zune requites the selecion to be played exclusivly in the Zune Player PC software to update the DRM subscription rights. I need my subscribed music to be played in the Media Center...very user un-friendly

Trying Tunebit

I am giving Tunebit a whirl. This removes DRM from the audio and video media...However, each title needs to be recorded. This is a complex workflow, but it does have an on-demand feature to sample a hotfolder and re-record as new items are added....Not elegant but it should work, at least until I come up with something better, or Microsoft actually gets all their music players to play nice with each they say...When Pigs Fly Wink Playing all my content is much to play, so little time.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
