Hi Jim,
Is it possible to have the Amulet's Green Start Button open directly to LIVE TV?
I haven't been able to find a good way to do this. It's technically possible to make the green button always go to Live TV, using a remote remapper utility like LM RemoteKeyMap - see www.lmgestion.net/@en-us/4/22/60/68/109/article.asp

Using this, you could disable the normal use of the Green Button, and then remap it to launch the application:
C:\Windows\eHome\ehShell.exe /homepage:VideoFullscreen.xml /PushStartPage:True
which will launch Media Center with the TV page active instead of the normal start menu. Unfortunately, this will likely also disable the normal use of the green button for returning to the Start Menu, which is probably not what you want.

(The existing Live TV button, a little ways under the Start button, will of course launch Media Center in TV mode, even if it's not running; I presume you want the convenience of a larger button to press?)

If you want to simply ensure that your PC is defaulting to Live TV in the event of a reset, a simple way would be to create a Windows desktop shortcut for Media Center (i.e. to C:\Windows\eHome\ehShell.exe) and pass in the /homepage and /PushStartPage parameters listed above; then copy the shortcut to your Start menu Programs -> Startup folder. Media Center will then launch in TV mode every time your PC boots up.

Hope this helps,

Eddy
