MP1 MP2 Dutch TV guide DE
Well done Robert ! I really like your solution. Previously I used the EPG Manager to download the pregrabbed xml files, but this gave me way too much information in the tvguide.xml for channels I did not have. When searching in the guide using the mp-webinterface I ended up with non-valid results because of this. But now I really find...

Have a PVR-350 in a Silverstone LC-02 case and had some weird problems with colors changing after a few minutes (weird colors) and have the solution to this weird behaviour. Seems that these cards are very prone to heat problems. Put a small fan directly in front of it and all problems are gone. In the case of the Silverstone...

I even have a motherboard with both SPDIF in and out so they do exist! I'm only using the SPDIF out though... I also have a PVR-150 where I hook up my STB's audio out into the 150's Line-in. This is not an answer to the original poster's question but rather a gotcha that one should be aware of... The problem with the PVR is...

Just answered a question about this, but thought I'd throw it out to everyone in case you didn't know about it. There are increasing numbers of sites providing traffic updates via rss feeds. You can obviously plug those into media portal via the news feed plugin. A couple of sites are listed below for those of you in the USA and the...

I couldn't find a conclusive topic on how to do this, so I made one. Follow these instructions on how to remove the WMP visualisations from My Music, and display the album art as a static image (I only know this works for the BlueTwo skin in 0.2RC1 and 0.2RC2, but it may work for 1.3 and other skins..) Alternatively you can...

The SQL would be something like this (I didn't test it): INSERT INTO channels (idChannel, strChannel, iChannelNr, frequency, iSort, {etc columns}) VALUES (90000, '0dum', 0, 25000, 1, {etc values}) INSERT INTO channels (idChannel, strChannel, iChannelNr, frequency, iSort, {etc columns}) VALUES (90001, '1dum', 1, 25000, 2...

Fyi, the popular dtvcontrol.exe for controlling certain DirecTV settops via serial control did not work for me out-of-the box with my D10-100 settop. (I was just trying to use the included GUI. I could power on/off, but could not change channels.) I didn't spend too much time on it, and others have used it successfully with MP, so...

How can I release the CD drive??? I tried to install mycdrip with mediaportal [0.2.0] and then I tried with the latest CVS. It doesn't work, it would seem that mediaportal is keeping the CD drive and not releasing it. So mycdrip cannot access it.

MP1 MP2 SQLite3 w/ JDBC DE
To manipulate the Media Portal SQLite3 databases via JDBC, you can use the JDBC driver from: http://www.ch-werner.de/javasqlite/ Following the instructions worked for me. For a general DB GUI client, I use DBVisualizer (http://www.minq.se/products/dbvis/), although any Java based client will probably work. This setup allows me to...

Bitbyte, I'm glad you got your DTV to work. I'm not as fortunate. I've been trying to get MPExtuneCmd to work with a external program that changes channel via a IR Blaster, without any success.

I had problems with TV losing sync (flashing black and white / a little bit badly formed picture) for a short period with my NVidia 5200 when : 1) timeshifting was turned on / off 2) channel was changed with timeshifting on Enabling "Force TV Detection" in Display properties -> Advanced -> NVidia tab -> Tools solved this.

A quick tip (learnt the hard way!) if you are using a USB soundcard (E.G. Soundblaster Extigy) and a USB capture card (E.G. Hauppauge WinTV-PVR USB2) even if they are both USB2 (and should therefore have the bandwidth to cope) do not connect them to the same controller on your PC. Most PC's now have 4 (or more) USB ports on the back...

The disadvantage of using say a 32KB cluster is that a 1 byte file will actually take up 32KB on disc, so if you have many small files you end up wasting large amounts of storage space. In Windows Explorer right-click on a small file (try and kind one under 4KB) and choose Properties, there you'll see two sizes reported, the actual...
