I have been using MePo for a fair few years now and I'm really impressed with 1.3 Beta. TV functions properly now and I can even get post processing to work properly. But I have to say I did a fresh install and even tho I have done it a couple times before there are so many plugins which need to be installed and setup...

Well I'm not US based (Europe) but I must say after a few days I tend to agree with you. I saw lots of channels initially, and assumed each would care hours over hours of programming, but most channels seem to only cary a handfull of shows. I assumed new content would be added constantly, in the rate of several a day, but it seems...

I'm evaluating MediaPortal because Micro$oft just isn't interested in creating a product that can be used in Europe. They certainly proved that with the latest TV Pack fiasco/scandal. (No DVB-C, h.264 etc). No HD (and even no SD for some) is a no go for most people I guess. MediaPortal/TVServer is still not stable enough, but I have...

It depends how many tuners you have and what you mean by "running". As always, each tuner can only be used in one application (eg. MP TV Server, EPGC) at any given time. If TV Server is using it, EPGC can't (and vice versa). If EPGC and TV Server use different tuners then the answer to your question is yes. If "running" means EPGC...

I just want to add my vote for MP, I'm using it for ONLY movies and series using the TV-Series and Moving Pictures plugins and have not had any problems. I'm just waiting for ReactOS to get to a usable state, and then I'm going to switch to the lightweight ReactOS and MP2 that look soooo promising!

Something along those lines would make more sense. One of the points that makes me want to use MP over XBMC (apart from the great TV server obviously) is the fact that you can fine tune which codecs to use. XBMC only offers the built-in ones, which don't always work great and are certainly not the best concerning performance...

Hey capitalf, thanks for that link to the FLOSS comparison! Yes, that is pretty close to what I meant. I remember seeing the link, but disregarded it as the data is over two years old.
