Yes - could be the case. It seems that they are not certifying software yet, but software that meets certain criteria that runs on approved hardware can be certified - all rather confused!

Damn right, there is a HUGE difference between freeware and opensource. Like Frodo said, this is released under the GPL, I suggest you have a read of it. Its good to see this reassurance coming from 'da man! :twisted:

MP1 MP2 Why do YOU use MediaPortal? (1 Viewer) DE
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...

You can set up AVG to update the virus definition on next computer start and not notify you when it does. This will make the experience seamless. Also, AVG uses 3MB of RAM on my setup. AVG will also work great for those of you that have replaced the windows shell with MP on startup.

Well I installed MP on friday afternoon and most of the stuff worked without a hitch.

The EPG works for most of my channels (The Netherlands) only...

If you connect your TV via DVI->HDMI you can achieve 50Hz which will give you the most smooth picture. Problem is that Samsung does not offer 1:1 pixel mapping via HDMI only via VGA. The VGA port only allows 60Hz. (I've got a LE40R51 connected to my 6600LE via HDMI)
