You have an idea how MediaPortal could be improved? Post it in here.
I kinda like the idea of mediaportal asking before I hit stop, but only in fullscreen. When youre in window mode usually theres no reason to hit pause or anything like that so accidently hitting stop in that situation isn't as likely. I use autohotkey to put mediaportal back to the home menu, stop playing the current video (or audio)...

Is this still available? I'm looking for a way to access the channel directly by its channel number (iChannelNr) NOT by table row id (that is, row id when sorted by iSort). This appears to be a North American anomaly. I'm curious whether the dll patch fixed this particular problem, as it seems there's no solution via SQL scripts...

It means that neither MCE nor Meedio are using fully directx9??? as theyre are able (it is not coming from) on a secondary monitor... It means also that the only solution at this time is to use 2 graphic cards???

MP1 MP2 Zoned Audio DE
1.I have a WHS running 24h, squeezebox server is running on that. A NAS should also work fine. 2. No, just MP on the HTPCs. I played with the software players a long time ago but they all had problems with keeping sync, the hardware players just work. This could have changed in the last years. 3. I use two SB Duett and one SB Radio...

Still adds more code to MP which could cause problems elsewhere. Ziphnor's reply is bang on! And as far as system resources go, rdpclip.exe takes up almost 5 megs of memory.

It would be nice in the xbox media center that you could schedule programs for recording. Also delete programs when finished viewing.

Hi, Setting 0 as zapping value is a totally different story. If you set 0, you cannot change lets say 2 channels ahead. You have to wait for the tuning of the first channel. If you set a value more than 0 MP allows pressing channel up/down buttons multiple times. Unfortunately the minimum value is 1 second. 1s is more than total...

Hiya. Having used a tivo( which I think is the coolest product that no-one has beaten yet), there are three things sort of mentioned above that I think will make the killer app: 1) Tivo's ability to mark interest by actor & director - both manually and automatically - and then record films/programs with these profiles...

I'm not very much into the technicalities of it all – maybe a service is the best solution… However I would like to bring up another side of the issue for discussion.

Not really a problem. I was talking about MediaPortal in general, not specifically about MP1, and if developers are doing these improvements in all new MediaPortal version (MP2), then there is really nothing to complain about. I am just glad they are doing it. :)

As many other users (do a search), I would like to have the ability to press F3/info during the slideshow and have the Exif as OSD (while the slideshow is rolling).

False. I think that users that are looking for teletext, audioselection, epg, etc, etc will simply use their TV. If you are looking for a PC based media reader it's to use it with other technologies than teletext and DVD. Be able to read a divx or bivx with a subtitle file is something than a simple DVD recorder can't do and...

MP1 MP2 Automatic updates DE
Every STABLE update of MP has not recognised a database of some kind, hopefully at some point in the future this will be totally standardised.
