    Advice Required: Building a new Freeview PC-PVR

    It's comparing apples with apples but what you mean is that you have a different user case. Depreciation costs are not relevant unless you plan on selling the hardware, which I presume you won't, most people run hardware until it breaks and it's then recycled. Just giving you an alternative to...

    Advice Required: Building a new Freeview PC-PVR

    I mean expensive as in total cost of ownership/running costs. For me the system is on 24/7 as it does house audio, backups data to the cloud overnight and also mediaportal. I used my everyday i7 laptop that was 6 yrs old but the screen latches had broken but it still functioned fine. Run...

    Advice Required: Building a new Freeview PC-PVR

    Why the need for chunky noisy and expensive to run servers? I just use an i7 laptop and winTV dual usb cards, most laptops have multiple usb ports, lots of RAM and so a RAM disk for the TV buffering and the whole thing uses 35 watts, just slide it in a drawer somewhere and zero noise :) Cheers

    Is Mediaportal dying out?

    All a bit gloomy this thread :p I think you are being massively generous on Plex. I recently tried it and lots of metadata was missing specifically for TV Series whereas MP fully populated it with no issues. Live TV has been shoehorned into the system and doesn't fit with the interface...

    Thumbnails are correct orientation but Images are incorrectly rotated

    Hi, So I have various pictures (several hundred from a recent trip) taken on a mobile phone. The thumbnails show the correct orientation so I presume EXIF works, however when I view the image it is the wrong way around! Is this a known issue or is there some setting I can change?? Cheers

    EPG data UK Freeview Aerial best method

    Hi Thanks for your post. I did manage to get it working in the end, using WebEPG. I copy/pasted the 2-www_mydigiguide_com files thus creating my own, then it was just a process of looking up the entries on the site and updating the file. Basically anything using the 1-xmltv_radiotimes_com is...

    Which Intel NUC powerful enough for Mediaportal ? NUC Users, please share your thoughts

    I have Intel NUCs DC32171YE which are only i3, 8gb RAM and 240GB SSDs, they work perfectly for 1080p x264 and x265 no tearing. No issues with fan noise, I think from memory I set them to be a constant spin rate which you don't notice. http://ark.intel.com/products/71275/Intel-NUC-Kit-DC3217IYE...

    Mediaportal Client - Help needed with HD playback

    Don't know if it helps, but if you google RX480 graphics dxva you will find a few forums and reported issues, maybe try changing the hardware acceleration dxva setting might do something.

    Locked time-shift files cause failure to change channel

    Howdy, I've been away on holiday so not had the time to investigate but have now synced the clocks on the server and client. Attached logs are from the latest freeze, interestingly the client was frozen with 02:25 shown on the news ticker tape clock, whereas the buffer screenshot shows times...

    Locked time-shift files cause failure to change channel

    Hi, it varies but is pretty regular. Sometimes daily, sometimes every few days, possibly depending whether I leave it on a HD or a SD channel. I can cause it to happen faster if I have multiple clients pulling from the server. Yep I just leave MP running particularly on a HD channel and turn...

    Locked time-shift files cause failure to change channel

    Apologise on the terminology. I got the same can't stream issue and have to stop the TV service and restart it, seems to be some kind of file lock issue?

    Locked time-shift files cause failure to change channel

    Hi, The RAM disk isn't used for anything else, just the MP buffers. I can pull logs from MASTER (the other client) if that is helpful? I've only provided the logs for the TVServer (called MEDIA) and one of the clients BIGBOY. So I just put both clients on different HD channels to cause...

    Locked time-shift files cause failure to change channel

    Cool I think :) I have the Ramdisk settings in-line with the guide already. Bounce this if it's off topic but should I therefore change anything? btw it's always confused me why MP states that the Drive space needed is 3150 MByte!? Would be nice to have just a dropdown menu, how much disk...
