    Goodbye MediaPortal

    Well - I would say au revoir (see you again) and not good bye. I left mediaportal for 2 year but when I rebuilt my HTPC it was my only choice of mediacenter; mainly due to the TV support. Take care, Ian.

    mini-itx client (for HD)

    Hello to all mini-itx genius’s, For Christmas, i plan to build 2 mini-itx clients (17cm x 17cm) for mediaportal. Cost around £300 per unit. I’m hoping to watch HDTV (BBC HD) on the client so, was hoping for a CPU speed of around 5000Mhz (Dual Core) as i don’t believe less would run BBCHD...

    Best Small Form Factor PC (Cheapest/Play HD etc)

    I’m considering coming back to mediaportal as I’m disillusioned with VMCE current processes lack of support related to extenders (lack of codec support). I’ve been playing with RC3 and it seems Rock Solid. I need some advice on getting the best “Client PC” that would fit neatly into my living...

    Media Portal 2 - rumours

    Going back to the Numbers frodo released - do they actually mean anything then? frodo, surely you can let us know another clue (better yet, the code book!) of how to decipher the number. Might have to get the old Colossus machine out of retirement to solve this one!!

    Hauppauge WinTV CI-module.

    In theory, Could it be used to decrypt encrypted recorded dvb streams?; E.g. Day 1 - 2 DVB cards; 1 watch encrypted channel, 1 encrypted channel recording (CI used with watching channel). Day 2 watch the encrypted channel from Day 1 if the CI is free? As surely there is no...

    xmltv 2 ? (source + binary now available)

    Laban, Tried the new DLL - didn't load anything into mapping screen. It says on the main tab that it imported 260 channel but by pressing the load does nothing. Is there something that I am doing wrong - does it refresh ok for you? Many Thanks, Ian.

    xmltv 2 ? (source + binary now available)

    Hey laban, Seems the last version of the plugin is broke- when i press load/refresh it simply finishes instantly and no programs import - the xmltv2 screen says that the program have been imported. Rolling back the DLL fixes the issue. Nothing seen in the logs Cheers, Ian.

    xmltv 2 ? (source + binary now available)

    Great - i think that this sorts the no matching displaynames as more often that not they mismatch - i also understand having a multiple pattern matching algorithms is most probably overkill, espicially that you can go through and manually amend them. No, i can't see it being >20 channels and...

    xmltv 2 ? (source + binary now available)

    Genius!!!! I have another few suggestions that maybe of interest to you. Does it match all display names in the XMLTV channel node against the mediaportal name? I recall the original plugin only matched the first displayname, so if the matching XTLTV channel name was the second displayname...

    xmltv 2 ? (source + binary now available)

    Looks great Laban; will give it a go – small suggestion could be that you allow for the mapped XMTV channels to be exported to the clipboard (or file) so that you can paste them into the .conf file (e.g. tv_grab_uk_rt.conf) – this would allow for the xmltv process only to grab the xmltv channels...

    Streaming DVR-MS from TV3 recordings

    Is it possible to stream dvr-ms encoded files from the TV server recording facility? The reason is that I have recently came over from MCE I wanted to bring my recordings with me – so I set out and wrote a little routine that reads the DVR-MS files, parses the information (title, description...

    "To Be Announced" - XMLTV

    Evening all, I currently have TV3 server setup to read XMLTV stream from the Radio Times in the UK 14 days in advance. This routine runs nightly and work great. The problem I have is that scheduled programs in 14 days may not have been announced and the Radio Times simply assigns a time-slot...

    3rd channel status - FTA,scrambled & Viewable?

    Hi All, whats your thoughts on having a 3rd channel status in the tv3 setup dialog called viewable (for want of a better word) that shows if a scrambled channel can be viewed. this would allow you to delete the true scrambled channels but not the viewable ones. this functionality could...

    channel is scrambled error

    I also have this issue with an S2-3200 & the T-Rex CAM (4.1). When CAM is in, changing channels is temperamental, works when changing a few channels (scrambled & un-scrambled) then the TvServer3 goes back to the start of the time shift stream of the previous channel or turns the stream blank...

    H.264 pre-processing on the TV server

    Please let me give you a background to the question. I would really like to have HDTV in the lounge but not have a dual core processor that is normally required to process the codec. Doing research, it seems that you are not going to get a slick, quiet HTPC that can also handle the H.264 codec...

    H.264 pre-processing on the TV server

    Excuse my ignorance, but why can't the TV server undertake Pre-Processing on the H.264 transmission prior to being streamed to clients? From reading up on the issue - the H.264 codec is cpu intensive as it compresses large volumes of data into smaller packets thus taking large volume of...
