Hi all! starting the process to spec out and build an MCE, really looking forward to it! I'll prob b asking quite a few questions for a while, appreciate all input (and patience)!
Q1) I saw a thread in the forum from mid-2007 regarding the implementation of Parental Controls; what's the status of Parental controls over what can be viewed (or even listed) in MCE? Does the answer vary by media source? (cable vs local media vs disk media vs. mounted media)
Q2) related to parental controls, I have a NAS with a good bit of video media that I'd like to expose to MCE once it's built. that NAS has two Windoze shares: 1) that's kid-friendly content, and 2) that isn't terribly kid friendly. Currently under my linux desktop I just mount and unmount the shares to suit my needs.... what tools/strategies are available in MCE to deal with that?
I kind of hope that the answer to #2 is related to #1 since that would allow me to leave the mounts active all the time and would let MCE manage viewing privs.... also dunno how upset MCE would be from a "library" or "index" perspective if a mount/share was enabled/disabled frequently... maybe that's my question #3?
