You have an idea how MediaPortal could be improved? Post it in here.
Okay, then for the client part. Indeed, never had problems with TV server part. But as you said, there are several threads about corrupted databases (either MePo itself or plugin related, which does not really matter if the result is MePo crashing). So, especially for the not-so-experienced user, maybe some kind of backup- and restore...

Actually, if you MANAGE MePo via RDP, then you WILL get autostart set next time you log in, it matters not which account installed as. To fix autostart, run msconfig and deselect mediaportal for th3e account you use for RDP - this can be via RDP session or console login. Ideally I would like MePo not to start EVER in RDP [as I...

Hi everyone, I try to set up my imon display using Minidisplay plugin. The problem is the message sent by the "Menubutton" control. This message is reachable by #selectedlabel<id> (with <id>=2 for "Layout View" and <id>=5 for "View as"). Is there a simple way to retrieve this message by #highlightedbutton ? Thanks for your help.

...or enable tuner preloading so the first tune doesn't take as long. ...or wait a little. gibman has done some work on "async tuning" for TVE 3.5... which means the UI would probably stay responsive while the back end is handling the tune request.

Hi This is something that has been bubbling in the back of my mind for a little while now. Would MP benefit from having a series remind function (an extension to the current reminder system) that is stored on the TVServer (like a schedule) that is also attached to a hostname; i.e. I have two clients, A and B. Client A sets a series...

Howdy, Was browsing through the EPG earlier and realised something that I wanted to ask/suggest but had completely forgotten about.

Hello, If thinking this as a plugin only for MP1, making it working and user-friendly would need: 1. Compiling the source to .NET 4 (like @Lehmden said). 2. Installer (MediaPortal Extension Maker --> Easy thing i think). 3. Support for skins (now the plugin values has to setted manually, ie. PosY and PosX etc. I don't really know...

I'm saying it's fairly straight forward for plugin developers to get remote input using the same library that MP1 uses which is called SharpLibHid. Users don't have to install anything other than the plugin itself. However that does not give you access to the button/action mapping from MP. It also works "only" with HID hardware which...

I can't believe this hasn't had any replies! Yes definitely, this is a glaring area for improvement. I've got 2tb of recordings I don't want. Cleaning them up is a nightmare. A simple selection system with an option to move\delete would be really welcome and long overdue. A massive +1 from me.

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...

Hello developers, My improvement suggestion would be a event monitoring or log file adapter mechanism. in the form of a standard plugin.

Many years has passed, but it seems to me that Radio section is still the same. If I remember correctly, the programming of radio section was simply derived from tv section. If you try to record a radio channel, the resulting .ts contains video, and the file is stored in recorded tv secrion. There are problems in building the graph...

Also such playlists often have tvguide data. So it will be cool if tvserver can also grab this data and stores in db. Also in my case iptvplayer downloads such playlist from online so it will be cool if tvserver could update iptv playlist every xx days/hours from online location too. IPTV providers often update/change channels in...

I could think of a few improvements regarding the gui configuration. One is that buttons should be positioned in a logical way like kiwijunglist said and when the button is below a certain list it should be accessable via the down arrow. Another thing is having an overview where in the whole menu tree is my current position. Is it...

Hi guys I have noticed that when waking the display up from remote mp responds to whichever key was pressed. This isn't the best way as when the display is off you don't really know where mp was left. Would make more sense if the first key press while display is off non active, apart from waking the display up.
