I am not technically proficient in this area to investigate it properly. Basically this only happens to be a passing hobby of mine.
Added to that, I'm sure MS would be willing to donate a copy of Win7 to the MP Team for testing and development purposes. Why not?
On MC/Win7 you don't need a third-party encoder or decoder.
MP already detects MC/Win7 decoders. So why not use the encoders too that if they aren't hardcoded into MC/Win7?
I agree the MC/Win7 decoders give a very nice, smooth quality picture like on a real TV.
I tried using the bundled Mainconcept encoder with my Hauppague HVR900 card but it never worked. I don't believe the encoder is Win7 compatible.
Why can't MP use the MC7 encoder instead? Or is it too integrated into MC/Win7 ??
Indeed, constructive criticism will make for a better product.
Suggest 1 does matter. After all, MP is a computer application. One might want to watch TV whilst doing other work on the system. Then maybe switch again to FS later and then Windowed mode later. I really can't see a problem why 1...
MP needs to improve on two very basic issues. I understand these will be implemented in the forthcoming version 2. So consider this a reminder if anything.
To iterate, the two issues are basic but vital to improve the experience of MP on a fundamental level. These before anything else...

Yes I had everything set up correctly. I later learned that the version of FFDShow I was using, 3094, was a Beta version and may not have been fully compatible with MP. I switched to an earlier release of FFDShow which managed to work fine. So I might suggest try one of the stable releases of...
I'm giving this a go:
- FFDShow 3094 (03 Oct. 2009)
- MP 1.1 Beta 1 SVN 23831 (1.04.23831)
TV is unstable when switching to new channel. Selecting TV Off then On again restores a stable image.
I am using FFDShow both as a decoder (libmpg) and filter.
My feeling is this is related to...
Yes you are correct. OK running MP Log Collector explicitly as Administrator allowed Step 1 to run without any issue.
Sorry my mistake, should have thought about that one.
Now will be able to post logs.
Thanks Simone but it hasn't worked. Configuration.log access is denied.
Should the Logs have been cleared up already?
are you saying it's not necessary to run Step 1 in MP Logs Collector?
I need the Logs Collector working fine so that I can report one other bug I noticed in...
Native skin is Blue Wide (16:10).
Issue: The "Resize Window to Skin" option results in the MP window oversized and partially off-screen. MP window then has to be manually moved and resized on screen by user.
Switching this option off (default setting) results in...
The issue is for resizing a Window under Windows XP. Vista should not experience the problem.
The issue I am concerned about is, switching Fullscreen <-> Window, using ALT + Enter. This I understand is a different issue and remains unsolved in MP even under Vista.
That was not the response I was expecting. What is needed are real solutions not counter-solutions.
I also already started a thread in the MP 1.0 section mentioning some of these problems but clearly these are bugs in MP and need sorting out. I still can't see where to submit bug reports...
Where do we submit bug reports?
There is a nagging issue with My TV. A momentary break in signal, or a weak signal, will cause the last frame of the TV to freeze. The only way to get it back is to turn TV Off and On again.
If this happens whilst Timeshifting is On, one effectively...
I know what you mean. Considering there were RCs before a release, should mean the final is a finished product. However, the nature of the project is such that it's an ongoing cycle of software development and repair. Personally I feel the terms Release and Final are somewhat misleading in this...
Err.. has someone hijacked the thread?
Yes I believe the Power Scheduler plugin in TV-Server has solved the USB sleep problem. Thanks poppabk, Mew! The feature should be made mainstream instead of a bit on the side..
Now if I want to unplug the TV card and have any hope of using it again after...
Hi all, been a lurker for quite a while. Have been using MP since at least 0.2.3.0.
The setup I have at the moment is fairly streamlined. Not running any plugins or skins other than what the stock package puts out. Only use MP with TV.
Can MP be run without a skin?
Regarding speed, I...
This release is not a finished product yet. The TV-Server/Client feature still has major problems. Plus there are a few other odds and ends which make MP rough around the edges. MP 1.0 has already crashed once.
