    MP2 update questions

    Thanks. I’ll give the backup program a look. My installation of MP2 seems to be slower, if anything. There seems to be a lag between selecting any option and it’s execution. Could this be as it is running setup or installation tasks in the backgroun, e.g. caching fanart, etc? It’s a 10 year...

    MP2 update questions

    I've decided to move up from MP1 to MP2 after 1 decade on MP1. the Media PC been used a lot less recently as we got internet TV, but MP1 is stable and bug-free. Single seat setup, nothing fancy. I notice a few things off the bat with this upgrade to MP2: MP2 is pretty! I'm still looking for a...

    Webepg not grabbing German/Swiss channel data?

    I gave up on this, and turned on DVB-EPG for these channels. First impressions are that the DVB-EPG data is much improved versus what I was getting from WebEPG - for German and Swiss channels, this was extremely basic. Should have gone back to KISS principles a lot sooner...

    Kein Info bei WebEPG

    Hab auch aufgegen und der DVB EPG eingeschaltet. Funktioniert eigentlich gut, besser sogar als WebEPG was die Sendungdetails betrifft.

    Kein Info bei WebEPG

    Hallo die Deutschen. Ich habe hier in diesem Post mein Problem auf English beschreiben (auch mit Logs): ich bekomme neulich keine Deutsche/Schweizer Senderinfos über WebEPG obwohl das hat über Jahren einwandfrei funktioniert. WebEPG funktioniert problemlos wie vorher für die Englishen Sender...

    Webepg not grabbing German/Swiss channel data?

    I've been playing with my setup, still with no luck. The current setup has WebEPG grabbing data for about 40 channels, about half of which are UK channels, all of whch work fine (using two different grabbing sites). The German and Swiss channels are grabbing at least one channel from each of...

    Webepg not grabbing German/Swiss channel data?

    I've not used MediaPortal for a few weeks (months?), and when I turned it on recently, I noticed that although the TV guide is fine for UK channels, it doesn't display any data for any of the Swiss or German channels. This has been working fine for several years, I haven't changed the setup. I...

    Any WoWLAN successes out there?

    I'm pleased to report I've got a reliable WoLAN (but not WoWLAN) solution - I decided to go with the LAN option in the end. The 'impossible' wasn't nearly as hard as I thought once I gave it some proper thought, and as a bonus, I hard-wired the connection for my SwissCom TV box too. Getting...

    [solved] Failing motherboard?

    Figured this out when I got back home, with some technical help from Digital Devices. It turns out there is a small power cable directly on the card which is soldered on the card very close to the PCIe slot. When mounting the card in my PC, the cable/solder was pushed again the plastic of the...

    [solved] Failing motherboard?

    I won't be able to test until this weekend. I've also sent a note to DD to see if they can advise... Maybe there is a way to connect a seperate power supply after all. Thanks again, MM:

    [solved] Failing motherboard?

    Good to hear, and I hope you're right. I'm writing from a train so not 100% sure, but the TV card is plugged into the smaller slot (about 1", I assume this is x1?). The graphic card is in the larger slot (x16?). The LAN card is in the PCI slot and one PCI slot is free. I connected the card by...

    [solved] Failing motherboard?

    The help is much appreciated. I don't think the noise is coming from the power supply, but it's hard to tell exactly. Is there a way to test your theory about a failing power unit by removing other items that are draining power (if so, which ones would be the best ones?). I've never done it...

    [solved] Failing motherboard?

    Apologies in advance if this isn't the right place for this question... I've been getting some weird behaviour from my HTPC recently. This came to a head this weekend as I finally laid an ethernet cable across the house to hardwire my internet connection. At one point I accidentally cut the...

    Any WoWLAN successes out there?

    My message should have read "WoLAN" not "WLAN". Anyway, I have used Powerlines in the past to avoid hardwiring, but found a regular wifi connection to be more reliable. Powerlines do allow you to use the LAN card. But the connection depends on a number of factors, key is the quality of your...

    Any WoWLAN successes out there?

    Sunfire - thanks for the reply. The steps you suggested are a couple that I had learned 'researching' this. They are a bit beyond my capabilities but something I can probably figure out. Before I start down this road, though, can you confirm you have a reliable wireless wake-on-LAN? If yes, what...

    Any WoWLAN successes out there?

    I used to have a Powerline connection for this HTPC, but switched to wifi as I found it more reliable. It's worth a shot... Before doing this I would probably have a go at testing with a LAN cable (trailed through the house) for WoLAN proof-of-concept. After that, trying Powerline and/or WoWLAN...

    Any WoWLAN successes out there?

    I spent the best part of last weekend tweaking my setup to get sleep mode (using PowerScheduler) working reliably. I had to deactivate every single PC component (i.e. untick "allow to wake the PC" under device manager) as if any single one was active, the HTPC would immediately wake from sleep...

    FYI, I found a solution at this thread which avoids having to go manually through the home screen.

    Harmony remote and S3 sleep mode

    Yep, Harmony remote here. It took me a while to find the right place in the Harmony app to make these adjustments, but once I did, it worked seamlessly. I tested with a 1 sec delay at first to make sure it worked, then removed the delay without issue. Thanks!

    Harmony remote and S3 sleep mode

    This is exactly where I am today, sleep is working fine but I first have to stop the TV (or music) from playing in MP for sleep to activate. How did you program your remote to do this?

    Technisat Skystar HD2 bricked? Replacement Digital Devices Cine S2 V6?

    A single CI would be enough, but like you I haven't found any cards with dual feeds but one CI slot. I have the space for two PCI cards if needed and if that brings other recommendations...

    Best DVB-S2 card?

    The pro series has two feeds plus two CI slots on one card - this space saving is the main advantage for me. Also looking at TBS cards. Any experience?

    Best DVB-S2 card?

    Thanks, Osre. I looked into these, they are highly recommended. The pro series (check link here) seems like a good deal but it is not listed in the compatibility list for MP. Would it work?

    Best DVB-S2 card?

    Looks like my Technnisat SkyStar HD2 is bricked, so I'm in the market for a replacement. I also have a Hauppauge Win TV card which is still working fine. In fact, this is my main card, but I need to SkyStar's CI slot to decrypt SwissTV. So, I could either buy a single feed card with CI, or a...

    Technisat Skystar HD2 bricked? Replacement Digital Devices Cine S2 V6?

    I could have written the identical post. I think my Technnisat SkyStart HD2 is FUBAR. I noticed that I cannot receive my normal channels on the SkyStar so performed a full channel scan on 19°E which showed only 50 channels (lots unknown). Before this I checked the satelite hardware by switching...

    Backupsettings installation error?

    I figured it was a version issue, and because I had so many issues with 1.9, decided to reverted to 1.8. Issues solved. I'll update in the future.... BTW, fabulous plug-in!

    Backupsettings installation error?

    I upgraded to MP1.9 today which caused some issues, so my solution was to make a fresh install. As part of this process I backed up all my settings using the latest BackupSettings plug-in. MP1.9 is working, but I can't get BackupSettings to install on TV Config (it works under MP config).This...

    WebEPG Deadlocks UK

    I had the same isse - it would hang when writing to BBC 4 HD. Like you I am grabbing radiotimes data. I removed this channel from the Webepg listing, then re-entered it, and it seems to work now. My issue with webepg is that gettting data for German or Swiss channels is extremely slow. But I...

    General satellite reception advice?

    Clearly, in you I have found my expert, so I will abuse your generosity... and I'll give fastsatfinder a trial. The setup is about 7 years old now, so slow deterioration of components is possible. I had an issue about a year ago when I started going down this route - nothing was obviously...

    General satellite reception advice?

    Thanks, mm. There isn't much wrong with the two cards I have so without a guaranteed improvement, it doesn't make sense to experiment. I have done what I can on dish alignment. I find the signal strength/quality indicators in TV config aren't very helpful, but I've done the best I can by...

    General satellite reception advice?

    My TV setup is based on a Technosat Multytenne dish/LNB which receives feeds from 4 satellite. My media PC has two cards (technosat skystar and WinTV Nova HD). This has run reliably for years except during very poor weather when the signal fails. More recently, channels are failing to load when...

    Installation hangs on TV-Service

    Fixed it eventually. I did another full reinstall, including fully removing MP and SQL5.6, but this time checked the harddrive to remove all SQL files and data. This seemed to do the trick as the reinstall was quick and painless. TV is working again and I can edit the settings.

    Default Audio Stream - BBC HD - NAR/ENG

    This is great, but for me the AC3 audio on BBC 1 HD is noticably quieter than all other channels. Is there a way of boosting the volume by default?
