    How do you setup External Player for Blu-ray ISO Playback?

    Guys, I've been a long time MP1 user but I'm migrating to a Server/Client setup where I'll have one machine running Server & Client (Main HTPC), and another machine running Client Only (Bedroom HTPC). For this architecture, I'm testing out MP2 since it seems to be able to do this...

    Considering MP1 --> MP2 Transition, Some Questions.

    Thanks Aspik. Appreciate the response. Unfortunately I'll need to proceed w/ MP1 on our new HTPC build. I'm setting up one HTPC in the home theater which will be both Server & Client, but i'll have a second HTPC in the bedroom which will be Client only, streaming everything from the Server HTPC...

    Considering MP1 --> MP2 Transition, Some Questions.

    I was just wondering if there was any further development on the external subtitle support? As I understand, my Server/Client Machine will have External Subtitle support, but the 2nd Client machine will not. Is that still the case? Thanks!

    Considering MP1 --> MP2 Transition, Some Questions.

    Thanks for the info. I won't be building my new HTPC till May-end/June-beginning when GTX 1080 & i7-6800K release, so i have some time. I'll install MP2 on my current MP1/HTPC and test out some of these features and issues to make sure everything works. Thanks!

    MediaPortal "Client" Machine - Questions.

    I'll probably need to wait till 3D Blu-ray playback support is added (internal or via external player) but it's good news it's in the works. I can use the MPSync method suggested by mm above in the meantime and continue using MP1. You're right about the remote control. The one with hauppauge...

    Considering MP1 --> MP2 Transition, Some Questions.

    For over 5 years now I've been running an HTPC with MediaPortal. However, I'm adding a second HTPC in the house. I'll have a main Client/Server HTPC and a Client-Only HTPC. For this purpose, it appears the MP2 architecture is far suited then MP1. However, a few months ago when I tested MP2...

    MediaPortal "Client" Machine - Questions.

    You're correct, I meant to say MP2 in that first sentence. I wasn't aware External Subtitle support had been added. I think the 3 major issues I faced were External Subtitle support, Blu-ray 3D support (I don't remember exactly what was the issue with external blu-ray player support) and...

    MediaPortal "Client" Machine - Questions.

    mm - Thank you for your very detailed & expansive response. Unfortunately MP2 as it stands today is not a solution for me. I did actually implement an installation for testing it a couple months back, and there's some very required features missing, most importantly support for external...

    MediaPortal "Client" Machine - Questions.

    For over 6 years now I've been using MediaPortal on our main HTPC in the home theater. Towards the end of this month, I'm building a new Skylake/Pascal based HTPC which will replace the old Sandy Bridge HTPC. This new HTPC will be the main MediaPortal HTPC. All media will be stored on this...

    Losing Remote w/ External Player for DVD/Disc Images.

    Experiencing a strange issue. With my MediaPortal 1.13, on my Windows 10 HTPC, I use MovingPictures for movies, and have Cyberlink PowerDVD 15 Ultra setup as the external player for ISO's. This combination works flawlessly - no problems. All my BD & DVD ISO's launch in PowerDVD, remote control...

    PowerDVD 15 as External Player - Some issues.

    I'm looking for some help from someone who's using Cyberlink PowerDVD as the External Blu-ray Player with MovingPictures. I'm migrating from TotalMedia Theatre, which I've been using for almost 6 years now with MediaPortal/MovingPictures. I recently upgraded my Windows 8.1 HTPC to Windows 10...

    As far as intent goes - I really have two options only; i) Abandon Windows 10 & revert back to Windows 8.1 where everything from TMT6 to all BD ISO's works flawlessly, or ii) Fix my BD ISO's for PDVD. Apparently this BDMV Folder Structure issue is well documented. It's not necessarily an...

    [solved] Windows 10: TMT6, VitualCloneDrive & Mount Issues.

    I'm sorry, I mistyped. I do have the PowerDVD 15 Ultra. Although I have discovered the problem, I haven't discovered a solution for it. PowerDVD is looking for a very particular Folder Structure inside the BD ISO's. If even a single folder is missing, it gives the above error & refuses to...

    [solved] Windows 10: TMT6, VitualCloneDrive & Mount Issues.

    You are 100% correct. As it turns out, my CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION BSOD's in Windows 10 were NOT being caused by Virtual Drive software. Apparently, this was being caused by ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre itself. TMT installs a driver in C:\Windows\System32\Drivers called "ArcCtrl.Sys". This...

    [solved] Windows 10: TMT6, VitualCloneDrive & Mount Issues.

    Well, for anyone interested (or still looking to suggest help), I'm running with another theory. There are confirmed reports of ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre NOT being compatible with Windows 10, and a "ArcCtrl.Sys" driver file that it installs causing BSOD's in Windows 10. People have switched...

    Hmm, Let me try the newest Windows 10 compatible DT Lite for free first. If it works, I'll shell out the $3.99. Appreciate the help. I'm still trying to figure out what's so odd about Windows 10's image mounting that makes it appear NOT as a Video Disc to TotalMedia. Very odd!! EDIT1: One note...

    [solved] Windows 10: TMT6, VitualCloneDrive & Mount Issues.

    Although I haven't personally tried Daemon Tools, the write-up/info you get on the CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION on Windows 10 talks about Virtual Drive applications that use SPTD drivers. It isn't specific to VirtualCloneDrive, it's more or less specific to third party virtual drive...

    mvCentral - Music Videos Plugin (Stable)

    I can. I have never, in the last 5 years, through all the versions of mvCentral, ever been able to scrape data (details, art, etc) for a single title. Part of the problem, IMO, is not the plug in but the source - last.fm. Quite honestly it's a pretty poor source for data. Nothing is properly...

    Questions about switching over to MP2.

    That IS a bummer - it really is. External subs is going to be a deal-breaker for now. It is unquestionably a critical requirement. 60% of my media (Movies & TV Shows) do have internal subs, but 40% don't. It'll constitute an unreliability issue. I guess that being the case, I will need to wait...

    Play ISO's in external player!

    Yes, most certainly. MP-TVSeries seems to disrespect it. I've always had that option setup & it works for "Videos". You can run a quick test if you want. Just use any iso you have, make a copy & rename it to an episode of any series you have in mp-tvseries. See if you can get it to launch as...

    XBOX 360 Universal Media Remote
