Quite simply it has changed the way we watch media in our house, we have it running in several rooms and we quite honestly couldn't live without it. I bought a HTPC 4 years ago and MP was pre installed, after messing with it for a while i was hooked. Family and friends who see it are always impressed with the way it looks and...

Yes, you are correct in that ATSC 3.0 is still evolving in the US. However, I tend to not give too much credit to predictions that of the sort that say all ATSC 3.0 stations will eventually be encrypted. There are many broadcasters out there that I doubt will ever adopt encryption for their broadcasts. In particular, Public...

The problem with MP 1.32 was that the TV Server component was still 32-bit, even when you installed the 64-bit version of the MP client. MP 1.33 will have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of both the MP client and TV Server. My understanding is that it will not be possible to perform an upgrade install from a 64-bit client + 32-bit TV...

So far I have installed an MP1 server and MP1 clients. Now I want to connect a Raspi to the MP server. Is there a HowTO for this? I installed the MPserverKodi plugin, shared the corresponding directories, and activated smb under Windows. Nevertheless, Kodi remains with the message 'PVR Manager is being tested: 0%

Thanks for your reply. In my configuration this setting is set to "no". To avoid misunderstandings, the MP window size changes on screen resolution changes, MP always fulfills the whole screen. Also, the home screen buttons size is adjusted. Only the font size is not adjusted to the new screen resolution.

Well, despite disabling ipv6, I can still see the error this morning. I guess the errors are random, no worries. I did a search for "genaservercontroller" and got 2 hits that reference Mediaportal 2 on Github. The linked items are from long ago, 12 years or so. Google-Results-Here

That was it! :) I had to set it to "Maintain display scaling". I think it was set to "Maintain Aspect Ratio", which added black bars to MediaPortal when playing videos that didn't conform to a strict 16:9 ratio, I suppose. Thanks to everyone for the patience and help, I can finally enjoy videos fully.

The two main issue I found with madVR was; 1. Jumping image with 23p and 24p video. 2. Stuttering with UI like the TV guide. The first was fixed by changing...
