    Support for new DefaultWideHD

    Thanks! The problem is more apparent if I use the sub-menu to show the labels of TV-Series, since all icons show the same picture.

    Support for new DefaultWideHD

    Hi catavolt! I love the theme! I just installed the new MP v1.13 and this is now the default skin. Thanks to the introduction in the first post, with the instructions of how to customise the homescreen I quickly set it up to suite my needs. This is the first skin that allows me to jump directly...

    Titan - Bug Reports & Issues

    Hi @CyberSimian, I don't think you follow my specific case. I do not want to "change" or "remove" the sound from the escape key. There is a special scenario when you have video playing in the background, that the sounds that navigation normally plays, does not get played. This is so it does...

    Titan - Bug Reports & Issues

    Thanks for comming back to me! I would not like to kill the sound completely, and because all the other navigation sounds get muted. I just want to figure out why the 'back' sound does not get muted? Do you know of a parameter in the xml that 'add it' to the 'mute' list? I guess if not this...

    Titan - Bug Reports & Issues

    Hi Guys, I posted this 2 months back in the MediaPortal support forum, but I didn't get a response, so I thought I'll post here and see if someone knows something about the sounds. (https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/mp-bug-or-skin-bug.130185/) Cheers!

    MP Bug, or Skin Bug?

    I have a small thing that I find annoying, and I would like to report the "bug" but I'm not sure if it is a skin, extension or MP core bug. When I use RadioTime, and I play a music. I'm able to natigate the menu's in silence. So pressing up and down does not make any sound while music is...

    [solved] MP 1.7.1 Crashing at startup

    Just installed 1.7.1 and it also crashes when it shows the Init DirectX... part. This happens when run manually and when it autostarts with windows. I have Win 8.1 SP1, using HDMI on the onboard video card. Logs attached. It complains that some method is missing. [2014-05-01 20:05:30,957]...

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    @Sebastiii you are very kind to explain so much! Using Git is really out of scope of any MePo Dev's support requirements for the greater good of the project! You see this is a notable difference (that require a mindset change!); The fact that you will always have, and only need, full "commit"...

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    @Sebastiii : Just an update! I have tried to install and use Git. But it seems I will need to read up around Git to fully understand how it is used. I have solid knowledge of SVN. But Git uses a different concept in how they see a Repo and it's layout... Because I'm a bit of a perfectionist, or...

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    Excellent! This means we can potentially expand the error check code without creating spaghetti code!

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    Oh boy, I know nothing about c++ filters, so hopefully this will not be a brick wall! :eek: You can do it as you get time, I have a lot of setup work to do before I can start working on the code. I also have a daytime job, and a wife. So I'll try to get to it as soon as possible. Agreed, I...

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    Hi @Sebastiii, FYI, I have found the following thread which shows that there is proper error handling for Direct3D: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/mp-1-5-direct3d-device-could-not-be-created-always-solved.122485/ From what I understand in the explanation, MePo did in fact show a...

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    Your welcome! It's always a pleasure to contribute to an Open Source project! In the end that is how the project succeeds, by everyone working together! Since I have a very uncommon problem with my video drivers, is there anyway that I can help you to improve the error handling code so to give...

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    Only thing I can think of is to install Vista and see if I can get MePo to work. Guess this Motherboard is just to old for Win7. I had a hard time installing drivers, since the manufacturer didn't provide Win7 drivers for everything, only Vista. Also this is using integrated graphics and I...

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    Hi Sebastiii, Find new debug logs attached. Infinite loop is gone :) DxDiag: This is how the "stock" DxDiag looks on my Win7 (notice the "Run 64-bit DxDiag" button): On the 32bit DxDiag, I see this on Display: On x64 bit version I see this: I did install the full DirectX 9.0c that was...

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    Hi Guys, Thanks for helping out. I tried the v14 assemblies but no luck. I do get a different experience, for what it's worth: When I run MePo now, it actually shows the splash (this didn't show previously) with "Initializing DirectX...", at this point it just sits like that for a while. I...

    MePo 1.6 Final Crash on D3D.GetCapabilities()

    Hi guys, My newly installed MePo 1.6 crashes on startup. Null Reference exception in D3D.GetCapabilities(). I had a look at the code, but could not understand what variable can be null. since most code is encapsulated in another try...catch, that does not print to the log. History: I just...

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    Thanks RoChess! I never realised the benefit of this... in fact what I understood about a "NFO" file was something different. I always use "theRenamer" for renaming series and movies. And they are all in folders. So I'm ready for MovPicNFO! Will try it this weekend. Thanks!

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    @joEhSuper: Haha, they are both in German :( Thanks for helping, I think I did see something about a "nfo" generator plugin for MePo, but I haven't done my googling yet. I will when I have time to play again, just thought I will ask because I thougth you used a plugin for this already.

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    @joEhSuper: What plugin do you use (or tool) to get the nfo files with the scraper details? I see your point and I'm wondering if I should not take the same path. Then you also have the added advantage of being able to view the details of a movie while you browser your file directly (like in Win...

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    For what it is worth, I had this problem, and it disappeared after disabling Video plugin and changing my skin/theme. If I have time I will reverse this and see if the problem is back. But if anyone else has this problem they can always test this theory. I thought that this information is...

    [Pending] Restart MP when exit Config

    Suggestion: Maybe we could do a little poll and see what the exact number would be? So what you're saying is that: Any patches (or suggested patches) require planning? The project needs people to look at optimizing the codebase? Thanks! Sorry for offending you. Keep up the good work! ;)

    [Pending] Restart MP when exit Config

    @seco: Remember that this is an Open Source project. Everyone is contributing in a way, even small almost unnoticeable changes play their part. Rather discuss the topic at hand in a positive constructive way. It is fine to disagree, but ditching an idea because you see it as a "hack" or "trail...

    [Pending] Restart MP when exit Config

    I second this option. Just because it simplifies a process that is repeated hundreds of times during configuration of a MePo setup: Start MP -> Decide to change settings -> Close MP & Run Config (F2) -> Edit Settings -> Close Settings -> Locate Shortcut -> Run MP -> Check Result -> [repeat]...

    Suggested Patch to Filter Out Sample Files Faster

    I will see if I can find this then. I did not notice any part in MovingPictures that pointed to a "noise filter" it only does 'n simple: Get Files in Watched Folders > Loop and Keep Only Video Extentions then at a very later stage (part of the movie online details processing code) it removes...

    Suggested Patch to Filter Out Sample Files Faster

    If you would like to try this "alternative code" you can copy this dll to your C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\Windows folder.

    My Choice of Skin for Slow PC

    Thanks! This worked! And now the list is much more responsive for movie browsing. Edit: Ok, I edited the skinfiles and that worked. But I like the "settings" option more because it will stay after upgrades.

    Stutter in Moving-Pictures - MP 1.4.0

    I didn't switch off any windows services. I only have the stock Windows XP x86 "Home" edition that came pre-installed on the laptop. Thought I did "restore to factory" before I installed MePo. So it is not a used Windows installation with all types of other software leftovers. Also something...

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    I was wondering if this feature wasn't done yet. I can recall that you said something that it is done or available for testing a while back. I was MIA for a while now and thought that MovPic 1.5.1 would have the grouping option, but I didn't see it. Also I haven't had a lot of time to look for...

    Stutter in Moving-Pictures - MP 1.4.0

    For what it is worth in the future if you try 1.4.0 again. I have tried to run MePo on a very old laptop and had to switch off everything that I did not need or could cause delays on the playback. I also had a very long delay when my video should start playback, but I see only a black screen...

    when I import films by IMDB code, the movie info retrieved is non-English

    Don't even think about it, just install IMDB+, it is available in the MPEI installer, and it does not add to consumed resources while your MediaPortal is running. It only works when you import new movies, and it just make sense to use it. The only reason why it is not part of Moving Pictures...

    Feature Reuest - Run MP From configuration

    Kind of strange that for years everyone used the Config to make constant changes and never thought that we need a "Save & Run" button. Imagine those games (I think "Unreal Tournament") that had a window based configuration before you run the game did not have a "Save & Run" button and you had...

    My Choice of Skin for Slow PC

    I have tried all the major skins on my very slow (1.6Ghz AMD Turion) laptop, and this skin performs a lot better than the other options.

    Moving Pictures 1.5: Now with GUI Importer

    Hi mrbert, 1) You need to rename your movies to something like: [Movie Title] 1.mkv, [Movie Title] 2.mkv. Or if you don't want to rename the files, you can just fix the grouping in the Moving Pictures config. I'm not sure of the exact steps. Also since the 2 movie files are already imported...

    Hi guys, just to add to this "old" thread. I also wanted to uninstall the TV Server only part. I also got an error, but since porky996t did not specify his error, I thought it would be useful to mention it for any other person that want to try this. I went to "Add Remove Programs" and in the...
