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 upgraded my Mediaportal PC (Server and Client) to Windows 11 to solve some driver issues as it was new hardware. Then I discovered that my other two Mediaportal Client PCs running Windows 10 would no longer work. I now have them both working and as I could not find any discussions on similar problems, I thought I would just post my...

I found the answer. The files were downloaded, and must have had some sort of corruption in them that passed the other players I tried them in, but produced the green bar in the TVSeries plugin. After downloading the files again, the problem went away. Thanks for your help.

I see that you are using the "Titan" skin (I normally use a different one). My "Videos" section has a "Biography" folder, and when I display that using "Titan" I see screen shot (1) below. If I select one of the folders in the list ("Abba" in this case), I see screen shot (2) (click the image to see it full size): As far as I...

Well, thank you. Knowing that it is not the same Media Portal does help me, so I know I do not have to look into this any further. You are right, I think I just contact to Edision support next. Best regards

Yes. If the TV is also used for Live-TV the format is indeed not perfect. That's why we placed it in the bed room last year and the living room got a larger 16:9 Samsung TV with selfmade Ambilight :)

The checkbox mentioned is unchecked. I found a solution. I had selected the AV HDMI device as the audio renderer in the MP Config. I switched to DirectSound and the issue disappeared, along with a problem with DTS passthrough. Some issue with WASAPI apparently.

I have never used Kodi, so I cannot give you any advice on getting Kodi to work with MP's TV Server. However... I notice that there is a new version of Kodi's "MediaPortal PVR Client" (dated today!) for Kodi version 19. It might be worth trying that. Download it from here. If it still does not work, I think that you will need to...

I couldn't get it to work, either I can see the TV guide but TV channel won't play or keep saying TV server starting up 0%. Any idea?

I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...

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.

MP1 MP2 1.27.0 Memory leak in TVService (1 Viewer) DE
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...
