    MUSIC section will not open

    Is there any definite fix to this? MP stops responding if opening the music section directly in album view, but it works set to share view in config and then switching to album view :s My music is tagged correctly using MP3Tag and I've tried a rescan of the database. Any ideas? My music...

    Hang On Initialising Directx

    Let me know if you need full logs, but this is the line with the error. Had a play with the startup settings and in alternative splash screen mode, this line from the log pops up in an error window. D3D: Exception: This sample cannot run in a desktop window with the current display settings...

    Emulators 2 - BETA - 19/08/12

    Just installed this and tried adding a few games/emulators. Looks really good so far :) Games are updated via DB, but the console information isn't; would it be possible to scrape this info from somewhere? Logos, year, manufacturer, history etc? If a game is renamed to scrape more accurately...

    Duplicate Album Titles & Album Artists

    Thanks for the reply. The albums ARE displayed seperately, but once selected, they merge :S That is what I was getting at with the second question.

    Duplicate Album Titles & Album Artists

    2 quick queries really; -Firstly, I have several albums with the same name - is there a better way to view these independently than adding an albumartist line between album and track (with skip ticked if not applicable)? Currently I can either select Greatest Hits and have tracks from every...

    MediaPortal and Imon

    I'm currently struggling to get my Imon receiver to control MP. I can move up, down, left, right and enter (ok), but that's it. Since installing IRSS (in application mode and selected imon usb), back now takes me to the first entry in the list/screen. I've installed the imon manager...

    Why mediaportal on Win 7?

    I've used Vista and now 7 MC for a while, and though it's acceptable, I'm waiting for the new MP RC to give it another go. I used to use MP, but a lack of Imon support and the clunky TV interface niggled me. 7MC is very reliable and a massive plus for me was that it has a FAR better TV side...

    TV Series DVD Problem

    [News] MediaPortal 1.1.0 RC1 - delayed

    Long time away from mediaportal, but I'm not happy with some parts of MS MC, so I'd like to give MP another go. If I install the 1.1 Alpha and SVN, will I be able to "upgrade" to the RC, or will I have to uninstall and start afresh - ie will I keep the settings and so on ?
