    MPTvScheduler - Android client for MediaPortal and TvServer

    Does anyone have examples of working transcoding profiles for MPExtended 0.60 Beta 10? I have been using the same one for a while now and it works pretty well in MPTvScheduler. Sometimes it just refuses to seek or even start but eventually it ends up working usually. However, when I try to play...

    Great, thanks for the help.

    MPTvScheduler - Android client for MediaPortal and TvServer

    Hmm, that seems to work. Had the profile system changed at all from Beta 4? The only differences I can see is in the codec parameters:

    MPTvScheduler - Android client for MediaPortal and TvServer

    Thanks. I uninstalled MP2, reinstalled MP1, reloaded my settings, then reinstalled MPExtended 0.6.0 Beta 6. I also restored my backed up profile settings for MPExtended. However, MPTvScheduler won't play any recordings or live TV. It just sits at "buffering..." and I can't see anything obvious...

    MPTvScheduler - Android client for MediaPortal and TvServer

    Damn, just replaced my Custom Data Grabber version of MP1 with vanilla MP2 and realised MPExtended still isn't available for it. I assume that means this app won't work any more? Sigh...

    DVB EPG Grabber not working (UK - Freesat Info)

    Ah good point, maybe it is disabled. I guess I'll have to do a clean uninstall and reinstall...kinda sucks since I haven't done that in years and that might introduce other issues.

    DVB EPG Grabber not working (UK - Freesat Info)

    So now the Sky UK EPG grabber won't work due to changes made by Sky, I figured I'd try to use the Freesat EPG instead, which is transmitted over DVB-S on a channel called Freesat Info. However, I haven't used the DVB EPG grabber in probably years and it doesn't seem to work. Here's the log...

    Custom Data Grabber with Sky EPG Grabber for 1.16 onwards

    I haven't had Sky in about a year and probably won't again for quite a while (ever since they locked down HD channels so they wouldn't work outside of official boxes I haven't been keen - watching footy in SD is terrible). So I guess I'll use this as an opportunity to switch to using the Freesat...

    Custom Data Grabber with Sky EPG Grabber for 1.16 onwards

    AFAIK MP2 doesn't support Sky EPG. That's the only reason I'm still using MP1.

    [Info] MPExtended 0.6 Beta Release

    I noticed when I started MPTvScheduler last night that it listed audio track selection as a feature. Unfortunately I couldn't see how to use it. Does it only work with the internal player? MX Player only showed one audio track.

    [Info] MPExtended 0.6 Beta Release

    I assume it chooses stream 0 by default; I know for UK TV you usually want to pick the second audio stream (i.e. stream 1) since the first is audio description. There are some cases where there is only one stream though. I wonder how the MediaPortal main client application does it? It has...

    [Info] MPExtended 0.6 Beta Release

    I understand this is part of the API, but it wasn't implemented in aMPdroid. I can't find anything in MPTvScheduler that suggests it supports it either. :(

    [Info] MPExtended 0.6 Beta Release

    Seems to work, thanks for that. For anyone else wanting to get it working, I had to put my customised streaming profiles back because the new version of MPExtended overwrites them by default, and then I had to edit the default profiles in WebMediaPortal.xml to ones that actually existed.

    [Info] MPExtended 0.6 Beta Release

    The IIS version would be great, thanks a lot. I had do some trickery to get it all working so I'm hoping I either noted the steps down or it just works when upgrading...

    Thanks. Is this the standalone version? I use the IIS edition to merge it into my existing IIS web services.

    So is there no way to use both WebMediaPortal and MpTvScheduler?

    [Info] MPExtended 0.6 Beta Release

    Is MPExtended 0.60 Beta 4 meant to work with WebMediaPortal 0.54? Any time I try to watch anything I get this error:

    [Info] MPExtended 0.6 Beta Release

    Also, does anyone know if MPExtended 0.6.0 Beta 3 allows you to select which audio track to transcode? This was the main issue with 0.5.4 - it would always by default pick the audio description track and had no way to change it!

    MPTvScheduler - Android client for MediaPortal and TvServer

    Just tried this app today. Once I got MX Player to support AC3 it started working well. However, a feature I miss from aMPdroid is being able to define more than one TV server. I use a local IP for when I'm at home and my external web address for when I'm away from home.

    [WiP] madVR support in MP1

    Awesome that this is being worked on! Can't really test specific builds since I use the Custom Data Grabber ones but hopefully it'll be stable enough to move to the master branch soon.

    Automatic refresh rate changer breaks nVidia output levels

    I am not sure if this is a new issue but it's something I've certainly noticed recently. When MediaPortal changes the refresh rate automatically, to 23.976 Hz in this example case, it seems to reset video output levels to their default setting (0-255) rather than leaving them at the correct...

    [Amazon Prime (UK)] "Error getting playback url"

    So is Amazon Prime UK not working at all then? It was definitely working some time last year but now all I get is the loading spinner for 10 seconds then it exits back to MediaPortal. :(

    DJBlu's Custom Sky Data Grabber for MP1.9 onwards

    Why is the 1.13.0 installer 50% larger than the previous 4 or 5 installers?

    DJBlu's Custom Sky Data Grabber for MP1.9 onwards

    True, although I did various tests where I shut down everything I could on the server and it was still an issue. So it could've been a hardware issue (disk controller maybe) or something to do with FlexRAID, which should in theory have been idle but maybe caused other issues.

    DJBlu's Custom Sky Data Grabber for MP1.9 onwards

    Thanks ears, will probably give it a go tonight unless I have lots of stuff scheduled to record. Any chance you could share an idiot's guide to merging and building this flavour of MP? It'd be good to distribute the knowledge as much as possible in case you decide to pursue other projects like...

    Service using excessive CPU

    No idea. I can use MPExtended fine as long as I don't use WebMP. So basically I can set recordings on my phone, which is nice, but I can't stream to any PCs without using VPN. AFAIK this issue has still not been fixed.

    Audio and Video Codec

    What codecs does it use? Record it and use MediaInfo if you're not sure. LAV Filters should be able to handle all TV broadcasts.

    Audio and Video Codec

    You'd likely have better luck getting rid of all codecs barring LAV Filters. K-Lite is stupidly old fashioned and ffdshow isn't needed either.

    First impressions, issues & quirks

    Just installed MP2 for the first time and started writing notes as I was playing with it. Hopefully some/all of this feedback will be useful to the devs here. It started up really quickly, which was surprising and nice. The first thing I notice is that the image for each item on the front page...

    Playback blips when watching live or currently recording TV

    Quick update: I haven't seen this issue once since switching to UNC paths. I avoided using UNC paths in the past because it caused other issues but so far everything is fine so I'll stick with it for now.

    Playback blips when watching live or currently recording TV

    I just watched a currently recording show from the beginning (so nowhere near live) and within 2 minutes saw a glitch. Logs attached. I'm using the standard 1.11.0 TS Reader. EDIT: I switched to using UNC paths and I've been watching a currently recording show from the live point for an hour...

    Playback blips when watching live or currently recording TV

    Not sure but I will try both of those things today. It seems odd that there'd be a network issue when playback of my DVD/BD rips are all perfect, and obviously some of those have a much higher bit rate than broadcast HDTV.

    Playback blips when watching live or currently recording TV

    Whilst watching something live that is currently being recorded, I get fairly common playback errors. They behave exactly as if there were continuity errors in the stream (e.g. poor satellite signal) but the recordings are perfect and the logs contain nothing of interest. I've even watched the...

    Custom series/episode numbers?

    Thanks for the replies. Annoyingly, this show is locked on thetvdb.com and Channel 4's website doesn't list either series or episode mumbers in their "episode guide". I know Sky's EPG lists episode numbers but not series numbers, so I have no idea what source is being used for either thetvdb or...

    Custom series/episode numbers?

    Is there a way to use custom series and episode numbers for imported files? I've labelled the episodes of one show I have recorded (8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown) according to Wikipedia, yet thetvdb.com uses completely different series and episode numbers. Thus, when I import it into...

    Stuttering on some channels

    As well as excluding your recording/timeshifting drive from anti-malware scanners, I'd recommend a defrag with free space optimisation. I've now set up such a defrag to run every night and it seems to have cleared stuttering issues I was getting whereby I could record multiple HD streams without...

    DJBlu's Custom Sky Data Grabber for MP1.9 onwards

    By the way, is Sky EPG grabbing included in MediaPortal 2.0 or are we going to have to use custom builds once again?

    DJBlu's Custom Sky Data Grabber for MP1.9 onwards

    Try using the "Every x hours" method rather than specifying a time of day. That's the only way I can get it to work.

    OnlineVideos 2.3.1.0 [2017/05/15]

    Does anyone have Amazon Prime UK working? It worked for me about a month ago but I tried it the other day and it just says "error getting playback URL" when trying to play anything.
