I have asked a couple of times to have the default for that setting to be set disabled, but clearly it is not a problem for everyone and perhaps there are negative implications though I have never experienced any.

"Sometimes" when I am playing a playlist with the TV on I notice that the screen becomes frozen. The on screen playlist doesn't show the songs advancing through the list. i.e. the currently playing song doesn't match the name of the on screen song. MP still plays the playlist ok but the screen just stops showing the correct song...

MP1 MP2 TV Service stopped unexpectedly (1 Viewer) DE
Hi CyberSimian I've tried not using WebEPG at all for a few days and can confirm what you said: that broadcast EPG retrieves 7 days at a time in the UK by default. I have had no issues at all using DVB EPG this way, retrieving the EPG when the system is idle.. I think I am going to stick with doing things this way and expect...

Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

This is how UAC works, the Media Portal itself runs under a user account, and the Configurator under an Administrator account/rights, the Administrator may not see your shared folders, especially if they are mapped to a drive letter (Because under his account, the shared folders were not mapped to the drive letter).

Merge multiple MKV files at once? I think you might as well try Joyoshare Video Joiner. Such a tool supports almost all media formats and it comes a lossless mode that can help you to merge an unlimited number of MKV files into one at once without quality loss.

This was it, essentially.

Strange that the preview window used to work not too long ago especially that little to no development is being carried out in that area atm.
