General talk regarding our HTPC-software MediaPortal 1 takes place here.

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...

MP1 MP2 Schedules Direct DE
Not quite that simple - or that complicated. I have used Schedules Direct for years and highly recommend it. There is a complete "how to" guide in the MP Wiki. Read that - yes it requires some work and time to get it going - but once running it's reliable and a very comprehensive EPG is the result.

As a general note on this, if GC.Collect were to resolve the issue then it's not a true memory leak as the GC only collects managed objects that the runtime can see are no longer being referenced, as oppose to either unmanaged memory being allocated outside of the runtime which the GC doesn't touch either way, or a lot of objects...

I've made a workaround using Autohotkey. If you don't want to install that should this problem arise for you, you can use my compiled .exe and add it to the autostart folder of Windows 8.1 and above. The functionality then is, when you press the Volume Up button on your MCE remote, this will send ALT+TAB to your HTPC, bringing...

I find the interface and operation of Media Portal especially 1 worlds better than Kodi. It's much easier to set up everything.

But they all voted unanimously for...

MP1 MP2 Using Windows 10 DE
I think it’s about having the update at the right time and not during watching TV or a movie. Automatic updates with boot countdowns are a nightmare. Secondarily I learnt that many updates bring new problems, especially with drivers etc., so it’s better to wait for the updates of the update, especially if major things are changed.

After I performed the usual "Change channel" for the 5 recordings with changed channel names mentioned above, all of the recordings were mapped to the appropriate channel logos. I'm afraid there is little hope for my DVB-C provider. Not only are series and episode tags missing, even the naming is inconsistent. The "COMMENT" tag...

I've notised that more and more channels are not working in OnLineVideos. For me it made the service useless sometime ago. It's a pitty since OnLineVideos was/is one of the cornerstone in Media Portal. And that means that MediaPortal now is not my prefered choise. My only choise was to move to Kodi. And that was, in my opinion, to...

No issues in Christchurch. You could tune an out-of-region version of the channel. I think the only difference is that you get a different set of adverts. I just choose ‘scan single transponder’ for the 2 TVNZ ones to keep it manageable, though you still have to decide which TVOne you want.

That panel is not quite as clear as it could be. :( The first tab ("Channels") is simply a list of everything that "TV Server" found during the scan. You can re-order this tab as you want in order to locate channels in the list, and select and deselect channels to control what channels are available to the EPG. The other tabs define...
