I have a few hundred album folders and run into same problem as favian. I currently use XBMC and it has option to auto-switch views. But I see that MediaPortal is more complicated and databases each folder view which is a neat idea but can get out of hand when dealing with many folders. The problem comes up when one is browsing...

... just another point, the movie database might be a good idea, but in practice is not good for what I (and many others from what I've read) would like to do. I would like to be able to use a series of headings under which I could group a number of shares. The existing database is very inflexible and clumsy to administer, especially...

I've created a simple patch that makes the mouse mostly work on the OSD. You can check it out here, and hopefully frodo (or another dev wit cvs access) will pick it up and put it into the next release. http://nolanparty.com/mediaportal.sourceforge.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2318

I thought someone was working on a general media plugin that would play music, videos photos etc all from within one plugin. I'd like to see a MyMediaLite plugin along these lines with no fancy gizmos just a plain solid working and simple intuitive U.I. as you might find in a set top box. I don't use the current MyVideos/MyMusic much...

I am using the mpeg2dec filter and the mpeg/ac3/dts/pcm audio filter. i have a P4 3.2 Shuttle with Radeon 9550 video card. I am outputting to SPDIF. It seems to be ok if not using ac3 pid.

Well, there is a much better workaround than using a loopback device. Just open regedit and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters Now create a new entry called DisableDHCPMediaSense from type REG_DWORD and set the value to 1. It changes the behaviour of the so called MediaSense and after this...

Thanks. I think HomeY found the same issue as well. We'll get the reproduction details correct first befor pushing the report further.

I find it odd that one would want seperate recording and timeshifting paths for each individual card. I would think that mediaportal installer or first time run of tv server config would prompt you for directory for all recordings / timeshifting and then later you could change it manually.

I REALLY wish someone would :( This problem hasn't been there all the time, you know. I think it came around a year ago.

One thing I have learned in the past is that such a thing is not easy. Unfortunately I was using Linux at the time. Have a look at MP4Box, I know there's a Windows version. Also I hear megui is quite good. You might want to go with MP4 files as they play both on PS3 and 360. Most of the time you won't have to re-encode the video...

Oh, sorry, that I didn't answer your question! Answer: No, of course I don't stop the TV. I just press the OFF-Button on my Harmony to power off all my devices. My HTPC then shutdown, because standby is not working good with MediaPortal (Crashes, wrong Window Size, etc. after waking up)

I'm wondering if this has been more developed with the new release of 0.2? I'm getting used to MP still so I want to make sure I setup recording a season of shows correctly. I have no need to record old episodes if I've already watched them so I am hoping this can be implemented still.
