Just this weekend, I updated my HTPC to Windows 8 Pro. I hoped that would be as painless as when I updated my other PC's - but no
My HTPC is running several "web-servers" - CouchPotato, Sickbeard, etc.. But it's also running a Node.js-server, which is acting as a proxy to all these other web interfaces - and this proxy is set up for port 80.
Now, when using Windows 8, the system automatically occupies port 80 for something called "http.sys" (See http://www.mikeplate.com/2011/11/06/sto ... n-windows/ for more detail) - this is for .Net-apps (and others) to have a common API for serving up things.
This meant, that I could not use my Node.js-based proxy. But the above link had a solution! Just make http.sys use IPv6, and leave port 80 free on IPv4!
But now XBMC cannot connect to the Argus TV Core anymore! Here's a log of the error:
Code: Select all

Thanks in advance!
