Hi, I found the frequencies of all the broadcasting stations of France and put them in a xml file by following the same format as in this topic. If the format is not good I can easily change it :wink: You can find it here : http://havrest.cliranet.com/divers/tnt.xml

I coposed a ...\MediaPortal\TuningParameters\dvpt.xml to enable fast tuning. It contains only 51 Finnish areas/cityes to select. When using this file tuning will take less than 1 minute per area/city. Just rename (or backup) your orginal dvbt.xml and <File><Save As...> or <right click><Save Target as...> link above to the...

If you got the radio icons working, then I assume you have worked out the whole thumbs thing already. I don't think it's possible with Messenger at this stage. Would be good if it was though. If I'm wrong, let me know. I would like to set this up too.

Hi Guys - MP currently can't use technologies like Cleartype, well it can but my experiments with it so far haven't proved to be very useful (there are points in the code that can be changed to change the way that the font files are generated). So what do you do to get rid of the harsh edges? Open the font .png files in an...

Has anyone else noticed that editing the DVB-t details in the config doesn't work anymore with any 0.2.x.x version including svn As soon as you run MP and select the channel the changes are wiped from the database and have no affect. The changes are saved because reopening the config after changes have been made shows they are...

There is a very simple way to edit out the "lead", "lag" times and commercials out of your recorded DVR-MS files. There is an article on MSDN demonstrating how easy it is to manupulate DVR-MS files. One of the examples is the code for splicing the DVR-MS files. (incorporation of the features in MP ? hint... hint...) link to the...

I bought an Abit VT7 mobo (which has a VIA chipset) for my HTPC and was having exactly the same problem. No matter what I did I couldn't stop it from artifacting. After buying an Asus mobo my problem was fixed. I am still struggling to get a refund from the supplier as the mobo says in it's specs that it would run with my video card.

I was very happy to find that my FusionHDTV DVB-T Lite remote works with MP perfectly! No Girder, no tweaking, nothing... Just download the latest drivers off the DVICO site, FusionRemote 3.2 - also includes a configuration ap, so you can tweak as you like and configure more applications (WinAmp, MCE2005, PowerDVD already included).

Has anyone managed to get this app to work with the ADS Tech Instant TV DVB-T PCI remote? I think it does the same thing - using a proprietary exe to send keystrokes to the TV app.. I'm not sure though.. (is there another way to get that remote working with MP?)

Hi etheesdad, I checked out Clonezilla last night and must admit that you're right: It's unusable for a NOOB- Linux. The idea of Clonezilla was good, but the implementation failed. I'll check your recommendation tonight. Thx /Gerd

Awaiting a CD ripper plugin, this is how I configured a CD rip solution. The idea is that I want Media Portal to play a CD when I insert one, but I want the CD to be ripped at the same time, so I don't have to use the actual CD again. This is an easy way of digitizing your CD collection. Of course I don't want to be bothered by...

Also remember that switchmode (PC, TV etc) power supplies are way more efficient than linear (big heavy iron core) power supplies, but they will still be lucky to reach aound 80% efficiency. This means that whatever power level you work out for your PC will also need at least 20% more from the power outlet to maintain. For...
