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'm now using the Digital Devices Cine S2 V7A. I had 2 blue screens when recording + network load (DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION with NSIS und tcpip.sys in stacktrace) but that seamed related to my network card: after installing the driver from the mainboard website, it runs stable. I'm still surprised that the power delivered by the PCIe...

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. There used to be available a few RF remote controls for WMC, such as this one and this one by Emprex (they look identical). But as you can see, they are no longer available new from Amazon. You may be able to obtain pre-loved samples from Ebay, but...

Hi. I'm a bit astonished that no one mentioned the DigitalDevices Cine S2 as a reliable Tuner card. Imho it's the best card available today. Or was it because this is a dual tuner card? But afair the DVBSky also is a dual tuner card. I had one before the Cine S2 but did not remember the exact number... The DVBSky was good but the CIne...

If it keeps annoying me enough I'll have to help you with that :whistle: That's weird, because video locks up first with audio still playing for a few more seconds before MediaPortal restarts, but this will give me a few more avenues to test for.
