Thanks for the advise. I want to keep it as simple as possible. I going to try out different skins though. For the music I think I will stick to MediaMonkey - at least as long as I am editing tags and organising it.

MP1 MP2 Silverstone GD02 DE
The GD02 is a brand new case from Silverstone with a 4.3" touch screen model available. Opinions on this size screen? I only plan to use the box for music server into the main stereo. Will MP work with that size screen with any real degree of usability? Thanks in advance before I buy.

hi there and welcome :) There are two ways to do this. The first is to search for the thread titled something like "How to get your TV card supported by MdiaPortal" and follow the instructions in that. Tis will get you going with the standard built in TV engine. The second (which I would recommend) is to use the new TV...

Thanks for the info. I was just reading that those will not work with Windows XP Home edition.

MP1 MP2 Hello Everyone DE
I too use the TV server and agree it is more reliable and generally better than the built in TV engine. I am a single seat setup (server and client on same PC), and i didn't find the setup particularly daunting - just follow the videos and you'll be setup within no time.

Well you should not remove the ID3 tags, you should correct them. if you want to use Music without correct tags, you should use the "Shares" view, which is a representation of the folder. All other views use the Music Database and need to have valid tags to work with.

Hello everybody, After a long search for software for my HTPC (Windows and Linux) I choose MP. It was the better and faster off all. The main feature that I love (Compeering with MCE) is the way that you can browse mp3’s. Thanks a lot all you programmers for your work. Although I have some “features” that I was not able to...

This has been around for a while. Check out the plugins section of MP. From memory it's installed by default.

You need to configure it up by following the plug in...
