I am not sure that I understand what setup you are trying to achieve. Some suggestions: (1) Place the PC adjacent to the TV. Connect the video output from the PC to the video input on the TV. Most desktop PCs and laptops have HDMI output sockets these days, and most modern TVs have HDMI input sockets, so you simply need an...

Hi, I am new to networking and stuff but I want to change the outgoing stream that tv-server outputs from RTSP to UDP, is there anyone who can point me in the right direction to start doing this? It doesn't matter if timeshift is involved as long as the outgoing stream is in the UDP://12345 sort of format instead of RTSP://`12345. I...

@koesterkm , although not using MP1 anymore I remember that the resolution of this problem for me consisted of either entering the computer name or the numeric IP address. Have you tried to enter your local IP (alternatively the loopback 127.0.0.1)?

MP1 MP2 Time&Time Format DE
Thanks for your replies! I already fearer that it is directly linked to the Win10 settings, and ignores the date/time display formats configured in the MP2 skins. My win10 is configured to show all button captions, menu names, settings and so on in English - so it's easier to follow hints from the internet when I've to fix/configure...

I am still here, thanks for the input, so I have now settled on mp1, I am not afraid of a lot of tweaking. Good news on tuners is I can run side by side with my WMC setup, as my tuners are using DVBlink to combine channels for WMC, so WMC is using 8 virtual tuners from DVBlink while MP is using the tuners directly. Of course they are...

Thank you for your reply ge2301. I think that with my actual hardware setup, manual scheduling is my only option. I am located in Quebec, Canada. The source for my tv signal is digital cable encrypted channels. My TV tuner card is analogic. The cable company provided a decoder box (digital to analogic) that I connect to the TV tuner...

Use mc2xml to get the data from SD. This will produce an XML file that the XMLTV plugin will recognise - once you have moved and renamed the mc2xml default xml file to the location/name that XMLTV expects. If you want access to the Series/Episode No. data then you will need to run a post-process on the mc2xml output before you pass...

Hello, I assume that you are referring to MediaPortal 2. Please note that MP 2 is an independent development Not to my knowledge. Open your TV setup, look for the Export tab, tick all options and then export everything. All your TV settings will be saved to the file export.xml. You can now uninstall your MP1 setup and install MP2...

billis & wjw, Thank you for providing your responses and yes, I do have the HDMI connected directly thru the video card and not the motherboard.

Sorry for not responding in french, but you can try that in onlinevideos (if it's video, and not audio--only) There's no standard way to do this at the moment, but with a bit of tweaking, you probably can do this. That is, if Mediaportal does support the streams... Is that m3u publicly viewable? If so, I can test if it will work and...
