Improvement Suggestions (11 Viewers)

You have an idea how MediaPortal could be improved? Post it in here.
LOL, history ! :) Few months ago, I had restarted from scratch, for testing differents things. It's time consuming but finally, at the end, a clean MP.xml, TVE settings up to date and, without older things (and more if you test or dev many things)... the gain is appreciable, MP seems to work better. ;)

I've gone for a different approach because patching all .thumb properties to use the URL (and work with all existing skins) is not something I can do. So instead what I've done is just added an extra skin property, leaving .thumb as it is. The new property is .Icon and is available as #TV.Guide.Icon #TV.Scheduled.Icon and...

This would be swell. Probably needs some design consideration as how to color a program if it has multiple genres associated with different EPG colors.

Nice idea - maybe the EPG "reminder" function could be expanded to do the channel change when that program starts ;)

Seems like either idea could work, if fast enough and reliable enough. (Keep the web-site open, use it, auto detect the download, and act on it.) Simple. :) Once upon a time I was a software developer, but no more, so if anybody wants to give it a shot, I'd be happy to test. FWIW, I run Firefox on the big screen, using the "Opera...

Hi, I've noticed that if you bring up the EPG and its near the end of a program, you can't see what it is as the actual time vertical line is to the left of the EPG timeline. It would be good if the vertical line representing the current time was positioned say a 1/3rd of the way in the guide so that programs running now but...

Thanks! I didn't know that, I only looked in the TV Service. Thanks! :) It's not easy to understand the whole code, if you are just starting with developing for MediaPortal, because it's a very huge project with a lot of code :-)

I know this is an old request, but I must +1 it. I have set up WebEPG to get all my TV schedule data, but I would like the ability to start a grab at any time I choose. The reason is that my internet connection is not always turned on or available for my HTPC to use, so a scheduled grab may not always work. In that case, when I'm...

I have a local community station that transmits corrupt EPG data and it can crash the TV service. Certainly a trap for beginners that makes MP look more unstable than it actually is.

MP1 MP2 [EPG] Support for PDC DE
Hi, since I'm currently moving away from my setup DVBViewer for TV and XBMC for my other medias to MePo, since the 1.2.0 made a giant leap for me in the DVB-C area, I'd like to suggest PDC Monitoring in EPG for scheduled recordings.

MP1 MP2 [EPG] enhanced dvb epg DE
I'm testing mp for a while now and it's great. But there is one thing that's really worth improving - the epg. I am using dvb epg because other epg forms are too static when channels change their program spontaneously or they are simply late in their schedule. (which they do/are quite often) Is there a way to recheck the epg...
