Jukebox/VidMgr Run as a Service?

How do I set up Jukebox and VidMgr to run as a background service at windows startup? I already have pyTivo running as a service. Environment is Windows 7 / Tivo Premiere.

Thanks,

Xekester

For VidMgr, I used instsrv & srvany from the Windows Resource Kit. It's been quite a while since I installed it, so I don't remember the exact syntax. For VidMgr, the application I started was python, with a parameter to run start.py in the c:\pyhme directory.

I also created a scheduled task to rebuild the cache daily running the following command from a batch file:
c:\python26\python BuildCache.py in c:\pyhme\vidmgr

Are there any step by step instructions or a walkthrough on how to accomplish this?
