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...

I recently purchased an HDHomeRun FLEX 4K (Model: HDFX-4K). Related, I live near Toronto (Canada), and I can capture over-the-air broadcasts from Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo (USA). All of my ATSC (1.0) channels are working well, some showing slightly better signal strength than with my previous HDHomeRun Dual (Model HDHR3-US)...

I find the interface and operation of Media Portal especially 1 worlds better than Kodi. It's much easier to set up everything. Interestingly, a buddy and I once installed 2 PCs and connected them to 2 TVs and showed them to several buddies who didn't know either. They knew Kodi from the media. But they all voted unanimously for...

Ok i will try this. So i gues cubic s the less demanding and NGU the most. So i could try jinc or the others and see when the time goes over 39ms. 39ms for average or max stats? And what about videos with 60 fps and more? I gues 20ms or less are the limit then?

Been using zap2xml to pull guide data from tvguide.com and write tvguide.xml for xmltv for years -- zap2xml suddenly fails with subject error after logging in to tvguide.com OK. Anyone know what the message means or what's going on? Edit: appears to have been a temp problem with tvguide.com that cleared after 3 days.

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'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...

MP1 MP2 Excellent RF Remote DE
Hi all. I just want to let anyone who might be interested know... the W10 Gyro remote is excellent. Works out of the box on MP1 and windows 10. No mapping required. Added bonus is that it’s RF and the dongle is tiny. Combine all this with the price and it’s a no brainer! I have no affiliation with this company. I’m just so impressed...

What is the problem with using an IR remote control? IR is the best supported for MP.

You may be able to obtain pre-loved samples from Ebay, but...
