MP1 MP2 new user DE
No problem I found it tough at first too! Media portal is a program that will run on a PC which will be able play media (music, videos, streamed content, TV DVDs etc), on a TV or monitor connected via the PCs GPU, (typically the HDMI interconnect these days) if you have the hardware and software to support that. For example if you...

The default for all those options is disabled (unticked) so don't worry about it. You can do a scan on all the tuners which will insure that should there be any hardware differences chanels will only be assigned to the tuners that can receive them. It is however possible once one tuner has been scanned to simply map the channels to...

Yes, sorry I should have said I would report back if I ran into any problem, I didn't it all looks very good. Please note the fix has been included in the test release of MP 2. 2.4 so is not generally available to fix 2.3.*, not sure when 2.4 will be released so I guess you need to close it on the basis of a fix in the next release...

I never dealed in detail with this, because I needed just to connect my IRSS, install the driver and directly it worked out of the box with MP2. Maybe other users may confirm, what they did or you tell us which remote you have. There is also an input device manager within MP2 which you can try.

Hello, Unicable is possible, I'm using it successfully in my installation. But it totally depends on the driver of your tuner card. I'm using tuners from Digital Devices, eg. the Cine S2.

Thanks for your effort, much appreciated.

Are you using a Windows "N" version or similar? Those versions are missing the Windows Media stuff, which need to be installed separately. The call which fails above is related to the Enhanced Video Renderer (EVR) which doesn't seem to find required filters

Hmm. The watched-status flags are stored in the database, and the database is retained when you perform an update-install of MP (i.e. not a first-time install). So I would have expected the watched-status flags to be retained. Caveats: (1) If you update from a very-old version of MP, there might have been a change to the database...

Hi. Network tuners can be shared even on the same PC (done it often while testing different software, I'm using SAT>IP tuner that are similar to hdhomerun tuner but for European DVB).
