    Force installation of TV-Server?

    Hi Not sure about forced install - BUT if you HAVE to go down the 'clean' install - see <[solved] - How to add TV setup to an already existing installation without breaking it?> - with reference mostly to saving data in Thumbs and DataBase to save you all the hassle of re-importing as well as...

    Home Automation: Anyone use home assistant / hass.io

    Hello all:-) Been playing in much the same sand pit as yourself of late [last 10 days in fact:-] - using Alexa rather than Google as gateway into controlling SONOFF devices (I'm going to flash them with ESPuna eWelink is just too slow, can take 40 seconds to cycle command and I prefer to keep...

    Splash screen option pack does not download.

    Hi Simply empty the cache [delete subdir in cache directory with the name of the skin your using - standard install - C:/Program Data/Team Mediaporta//Mediaportal/cache]/ On restart, MediaPortal will rebuild the cache - makes start up a little slower but not much. Also make sure the...

    Advice Required: Building a new Freeview PC-PVR

    Yep - range of versions but all do much same, link card to MB via ribbon cable, possibly with some passive components to address noise - remember your inserting additional electrical pickup into high speed digital bus, wiring should other signal sources close to cable unless it's shielded.

    Advice Required: Building a new Freeview PC-PVR

    And MP can record multiple programs on same tuner IF they are on same transponder [as this is specific to location AND exactly what you record you are best to only assume 1 per tuner however]. Same - for my main box, updates are OFF - the machine is used as MePo box only with no Internet route...

    TVServer (Win10) cannot write to NAS (QNAP T253A)

    SMB version support perhaps, SMB 1 being removed from Win10 post WannaCr? I have old NAS I kicked into life and had some problems until re-enabled SMB 1 in Win10 {as it's not exposed externally it's safe option}. Cheers - J.

    Jumping in show list?

    With nothing special set in remote, and using keyboard in MPTVSeries it does jump to selected capital letter - once! You then have to select or navigate with remote/keyboard and then you get jump again..... Once in the selected series, back to navigation only - can't jump to 'Season 4' for...

    Access Settings when disabled

    Far from dying - just quiet:cool: To remove from main interface, you mean set it as plugin in plugins section - then just navigate to it with remote and select plugins then select which one, then remote and/or kbd|mouse works. Can confirm that Short cutter works with 1.18, so direct from...

    Simplest dumb issue - please help.

    Ok but reinstall is rarely needed - MePo is very robust on install - the logs would probably have been better 1st pass to give bods here a chance to help out. If you see this before re-install, set Config logging to DEBUG [it's in General Setting], close config, then run MePo from Watchdog...

    Hello TBR. This isn't normal behaviour, but with no technical detail, impossible to speculate. See <Welcome to the Newcomers Forum - Please Read BEFORE posting> 1st, and post logs, supported by 'I did X at time Y' narrative as this makes checking logs so much easier, and provide details in...

    Feature Request for MP1.18 PRE - granular control of "Stop Playback on removal of audio renderer"

    Very possible - I do make a point of vacuuming my machines every few months, as my main box sits in lounge and where we live gets a lot of dust blow though + the impact of 5 cats [in moulting season we can groom enough fur from the big one to knit another small one:sneaky:], it's well worth...

    Feature Request for MP1.18 PRE - granular control of "Stop Playback on removal of audio renderer"

    I had consider it as well as possible solution(y). Assuming I could EventGhost the selection mapping [so selecting music/radio would select internal device and selecting any video based service select HDMI] that would mean turning TV off/on would work [as TV off == TV speakers off:)] - what it...

    Feature Request for MP1.18 PRE - granular control of "Stop Playback on removal of audio renderer"

    Feature Request for MP1.18 PRE - granular control of "Stop Playback on removal of audio renderer"

    OK - so we have Vista user:eek:, a non-HDMI user [more :eek: and it gets ever more complex generally:oops: So, I think it would be perfectly reasonable to say 'not for consideration in 1.18 PRE' as too many variables to be considered, but may hap further consideration for 1.19 maybe...

    As always, thanks for the feed back & history here MM. Yes, fully get that, although side effect may be better then luck as explanation;) Agreed, RDP - be very surprised if that was even slightly viable & multi-screen, that would be beyond ugly as well. However, if the 'function' was...

    Hi. Yes, it's changes to that config I'm asking to be considered:-> My set will be MP -> audio amp direct + video to TV, acting as monitor with no sound - this was setup in earlier pc build but in latest build I couldn't get rid of the mains hum:mad:, so just ripped amp out:oops: - planned...

    Feature Request for MP1.18 PRE - granular control of "Stop Playback on removal of audio renderer"

    Change request - update options so audio playback CAN remain active on removal of HDMI connection for music and radio. Rational for request - when using separate amplifier for playback [but not a full AVR which probably handles the HDMI side rather better], the ability to turn off video device...

    MCE remote(s) suddenly stopped working

    Missed 'two RX units' - now that is bizarre and a total buggeration:oops: Occam would therefore suggest problem with system then - possibly the drivers are mincing the output before it gets as far as being recognised as valid keyboard input [W10 updates have a reputation:eek:. Do you have...

    MCE remote(s) suddenly stopped working

    Hi Suspect your IR receiver is simply broken;-< and it's not sending data over USB. Given: unit is getting power ; the front end IR side works [see commands and flashes local LED]; the USB interface is also working [your PC see's it as appropriate type]. This suggest to me that the IR to...

    MCE remote(s) suddenly stopped working

    You could try this <QiPress v1.071 for Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/10 | aalapshah.in> to test if the signal is getting to Windows as a key stroke - basically, will show what 'keys' pressed as overlay on MePo - used it before to debug a problem I had - lite [free] version does enough for debugging...

    Cool - and could indeed be the issue here - my TVServer being a case in point, brown outs here are tedious and come in batches, TVServer has had to be rebuilt several times after Win7 lost the plot - so far so good on Win10, but not had a lot of brown in the last 6 months [touches wood, avoids...

    Broken episode thumbnail crashes MediaPortal

    Hi all Assumption is this is in the plugin, but I'm not so sure - I'd assume the plugin call's standard core routines to handle image display - the DB stuff handles the path [all of which is good] and the import, but hands actual display off...... Adding image 'verification' to the plugin may...
