    Playing HD stuff

    So a HD2600 would be better than a 9800 pro? I'm not looking to do any gaming on this computer. Should I change my socket 478 motherboard or just get a ~3GHz P4?

    Playing HD stuff

    My HTPC has a P4 2.8 which has to run at 1.6GHz (mobile CPU locked at 12x multiplier) and an ATi Radeon 9800 Pro. I want to upgrade it to be able to play HD videos. At the moment I can play HD DivX/XviD files, but MPEG-2 or anything else struggles to play. So should I upgrade the CPU, the...

    Adding cool IMDB features to MP ;)

    Good idea, although TV series, TV movies and documentaries are also shown on IMDb so perhaps every genre other than "News", etc. (I'm sure there are others) could be linked to it.

    Radeon 9800 Resolution Reset

    I've got an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro running at 1280x720 via a DVI -> HDMI cable to my TV. The problem is that every time the HTPC is restarted the resolution resets to 640x480, which is really quite annoying. There's also the problem that if I turn the TV off and on again, there's no way to get...

    FireDTV / FloppyDTV + Sky Digital

    Thanks for the reply :D I've actually moved in already, and I just got a new sky box instead. But I'm still very interested in this set up. Have you managed to get the box office channels working? I'm very tempted to order one now... :lol:

    Can't play .TS files

    On 'Normal' it's basically stretched. i.e. a 16:9 video is shown in 4:3 on normal, and only looks as it should on stretch. But I still don't get any sound :)

    Can't play .TS files

    I've managed to get my HTPC playing .TS files in PowerDVD and Windows Media Player, but whenever I try to play them in MediaPortal I cannot. When I've got my video codec set to the Cyberlink Video/SP and the audio on anything and I can get video but no sound. If I change the video codec to...

    HD makes my HTPC struggle. New CPU or new system?

    I currently have MediaPortal running on a Mobile P4 2.8, but my motherboard (8IPE1000-G) doesn't support speedstep so the CPU is locked at 12x. It has 1GB of PC2700 memory in dual ddr mode. It's running in 768x576, plugged into my TV via S-Video. It's running fine at the moment and everything...

    Skin: Razor

    Thanks for the response! This is probably a bug in mediaportal so I'm sure it will be fixed soon :) I realise that I'm not running it as it was designed, but there are some places that I feel could be optimised for both types of screen. For example, in 'My Videos' there is a title 'Shares'...

    MCE Remote and its green button...

    For me it does come to the foreground - it just makes the annoying windows beep sound whenever I press a button on the remote. I end up just rebooting, it's easier :lol:

    FireDTV / FloppyDTV + Sky Digital

    I want to view Sky Digital on my HTPC, and I'm moving home and won't be taking my Sky box with me. Even if I was - I'm not entirely happy with the buffer delay of the MPEG cards which makes channel browsing very tedious. I'm basically wondering if anyone has successfully received all channels...

    Skin: Razor

    I'm using the skin in 4:3 (800x600) and it looks fantastic. Good points: Very nice design with nice fonts and nice colours I love the bigger TV screen on 'My TV' A few bad points: I've set my MediaPortal to turn on the TV automatically when entering My TV - and when I do so the...

    Navigating through folders with num pad on remote

    I have a lot of directories in my videos and my music, and sometimes it can be very tedious scrolling down with the remote. On my Sky Digital box, I can scroll through the channels using the num pad, i.e. you press 2 twice and get to the first record beginning with B, or 6 three times and get...

    IMDB Info

    MediaPortal and the IMDB info thingie are both excellent (and it saves me having to get out of bed :P) but my girlfriend and I were wondering why the IMDB plugin downloads the 'actor info'. I can't figure out where it's used or how to access it, so it just seems like a waste of time and...
