MP1 MP2 Versioning scheme DE
You're right, of course. I was thinking of something lighter for now. Let me use a scenario to explain : some newbie sticks a TV tuner in its PC, grabs the latest-and-greatest mediaportal binary, then comes to this forum saying "nothing works, help". Forum users could then say "well, with your kind of hardware/software, try first...

MP1 MP2 EPG direct jumping DE
Oh an of course, pressing 1 -x in live TV should directly change the channel! I didn´t see that in the keymaps.

Yep, that could also be a good solution. Another EPG search example that looks nice is from MythTV: http://mythtv.sourceforge.net/mc/mpf3.png There you go from left to right. In the first table all characters are listed. In the second all matching programs to the selected character and the last lists all occurencies of the...

We can start one by incorporating Cassini into MP and develop C#.Net web pages that can interact directly with our C# code... What I was planning is to create a new type of plugin: Services. That way we can incorporate Web Server, FTP, WebServices, etc... Something I wanted to coordinate with Frodo!

Hi Goosey, The todo list is in the MediaPortal/docs folder under Programs/Team Mediaportal. It contains the todo Frodo has in mind for the app... Keep posting your ideas, though, as they may get into the list, for future development, or someone else may take up the job and create a plugin..

uFreedb was written in VB6 and released under the GPL. I'm pretty sure it supported CDText (and, if not, the author - Jon Zahornacky - sent me some code to use, which I may still have). It might be possible to convert it to VB.net. I'd suggest it may at least be worthwhile finding a copy of the uFreedb source and having a look at it...

I'm also keen to have this functionality. And as soon as I can find the appropriate methods in the WMP object, I might just implement it. (I love open source!) Until then : "C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe" /prefetch:3 /RipAudioCD "%L" replace "%L" with your CD drive letter. Works in Windows media player...

Usable workaround This has worked for me for tv in OVERLAY mode: 1) go to settings and set any value for overscan, then back to the home screen and exit 2) In the MP install dir, there is now a file, in my case it was called "calibration720x576.xml". Open it, e.g. with notepad 3) Change values in the following keys: <entry...
