We'll, again I have posted a problem then found the solution myself :whistle: I incorrectly used "Multi seat setup: use UNC paths" when I was setting up initially and having some trouble with paths. I had clicked help for that setting before I tried using it, but many of the help links in the config utility are broken. Today I...

Thanks, it did not occur to me to try option 2. That works perfectly. I was definitely using option 4 previously though. I figured that it included both entries because they both had the time 2202 as start or finish times. It was weird that it treated week 1 and week 2 differently though. Anyway, thanks again.

A bit tricky to see if correct codec are in place, is to use GraphStudioNext Unpack the zip into a C:\GraphStudioNext Register "proppage.dll" in an elevated command prompt : regsvr32 "c:\GraphStudioNext\proppage.dll" Then start MP and try to play a video.

You know that friend of mine, Fox Mulder, he really had something there. I have learned today that 'Trust no one' should not include just people but also control panels. They lie too. Really.

It is possible IMDb+ did not update as sometimes Moving-Pictures goes crazy on the script-table.

I don't think that it is clear that you need to upgrade :eek:. I used WMC for six years, and have been using MP1 for another six years. I migrated from WMC to MP because it offered more of what I wanted, and less of what I didn't want. But if you are comfortable with WMC, the obvious choice is to stay with WMC on Windows 7. The...

Well, if you ask me, with all respects, even not in your dream. I will never work in myprograms. MultiShortcut is working, only missing is(are) skin(s) configuration(s). This is not plugin(s) way(s) to manage skin(s) stuff. And, more when plugin don't use "skin GUI" stuff. Better is to leave as it (with risk) or, modify basic home editor.

MP1 MP2 MiniDisplayStatus error log messages (1 Viewer) DE
Can't really trace it down to the lowest level, so this is kindof a guess: I think it's because the minidisplay wants to get the status of the tvserver to know if it needs to f.e. display the title of the current program
