I got Mencoder working to rip DVDs but i was wondering if there is any way or future upgrade that may be coming to set more options for Mencoder beyond just selecting a bitrate. I was thinking maybe to allow audio copy rather then re-encoding or a target file size

THANKS! after working through that great info I was able to get the PC to recognize 5.1 and 7.1 with all the formats and frequencies I needed and then some as I forced the system to see a different receiver then what I own. I will be bookmarking that for future reference.
Thanks for the info, I had seen that forum thread before but didn't think it applied as I know that with my set top HD-DVD and both my regular DVD players the TV fed the surround/DD/DTS data to the TV and the TV fed the audio to the receiver. Thinking about it that does make sense as...
Hey, I know this isn't the best place to post this but after trying other general/ATi forums with 0 replies I am at a loss.
I just installed Win7 on my system after running WinXP for a few year. I installed everything just fine and got MP running the way I want it but the sound drivers for my...
Just an update as I just found this ARSTechnica article
SkypeKit SDK could bring gift of gab to more gadgets
the bottom of it points out Skype Developer which has a big green "Request Beta Invite" button.
I hope this helps get the plugin rolling as i am waiting with bated breath
Is there any way that someone would be able to make the 5x3 have the faded show banners the way the newer 3x3 screens do? i really love that look but with over 50 TV shows scanning 3x3 at a time is way too slow!

I have the same issue with my XM setup in StreamRadio v2. I had just assumed it was with the use of uXM and the XM servers delaying to long on loading the channel. When I click the same station a second (or third) time it loads up just fine.
Is this a...
If anyone is interested in a work-around using My StreamRadio v2 to get XM radio to work in MP I have something that works for me:
1) Install uXM
2) Copy the attached "station XML files.zip" to Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Radio
Hey, Kroko. Great plug-in but I have a few questions about it:
1) Do you have to have the Shoutcast and Ice cast channels listed or is there a way to remove them?
2) Is there a way to set it up to show the <short> name instead of the <name>?
3) does the <position> tag do anything?
4) Is the...
Pretoriano: Thank you so much, I configured TV Server and now the configuration.exe tool works perfectly! Why would not setting up the TV Server cause random slowdowns in Configuration.exe? thats weird but everything thing works now and I have learned my one new thing for the day!
Thanks Pretoriano, I did not think to check that as I had not planned on watching/recording TV on this system. I will test that tonight and report back my results.

I have not noticed any change in the response of mediaport itself but after upgrading from the first release of 1.0 to the latest 1.0.2 (or where ever the 2 goes) last week I have noticed the configuration.exe and all plugins started from there will just hang for 5-10 seconds then continue to...
All the files are in the same I had already tried to check the capitalisation of the files and that did not change anything. I was able to get it to work after moving it to another system for testing. I use "c:\test" for anything I need to troubleshoot and it worked fine so I tried it in...
I uninstalled Python 3.0 and installed Python 2.6.1 but I am still getting the same error:
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'basichome.3.tpl'
Is there some other requirement besides just Python 2.6 that I need to know about?
Because it was not stated that an OLD version of Python was required to run the script. I will test that tonight and report back. I guess the script has some requirements that should be listed with it or be updated to handle the changes in Python 3.
Thanks for the help in fixing the script but now it pukes on the filename of the templates.

THANKS SOOOOO MUCH! that was way easier then trying to use a third party plug-in to change the button layout. I was also able to get the Radio button remapped to load the RadioTime plug-in
I do not use the IR Server Suite just the built-in remote plug-in. If you can show me the process/files (are the settings store someplace easy to hack?) to work on I may be able to hack together something that works for me as I was also looking at changing the Radio button to load the RadioTime...

I tried the SVN, a little unsure of running "the cutting edge" stuff, but it seems to be working for me now. I am able to skip around in the video and music playlists. Now I just have to test all my other functions to make sure nothing got botched that worked before.
THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP...
I went back to the RC4 version of core.dll (0.9.4.31350) and have no control over my music now. It starts playing the first track and stops when it reaches the end of it. I am not able to shuffle, skip, fast-forward or anything. I have less control then I did when I used the replacement core.dll...
Tried new core.dll but no luck
Hi, This is my first post so be gentle please.
I am having issues with MP not responding to the remote when using My Music. I try to get it to shuffle the playlist but the system does not respond. I tried to skip to the next track and nothing. I would...
