    Cool improvements?

    I have a few ideas for simplifying the usage and development of MediaPortal. 1. The idea you hint at for 1.01 of a fully automatic installation is GREAT!!!! Include a super simplified installation routine for SVN's and half of the development routines will be fixed and your users ecstatic...

    Multiple channels without multiple CAMcards?

    I don't know about the technical details about the CAM-cards, what they handle and in what turns they do it. Apparently some commercial boxes like the Samsung I referred to earlier in the thread can handle at least 2 channels, with 2 tuners no doubt, but with only 1 CAM-card. It dawned on...

    Multiple channels without multiple CAMcards?

    Would be very interesting to know! I'm just thinking that the cable company "comhem" in Sweden can't oppose the idea that one could see 2 (or more?) shows at the same time or they wouldn't have approved that Samsung DCB-P850Z cable box for use in their net. It has 1 CAM and 2 digital tuners...

    Multiple channels without multiple CAMcards?

    I have a Samsung DCB-P850Z cable box that has a single CAMcard holder but can tune/record 2 different channels at the same time, not only from the same transponder as suggested in the introinfo about the new TVserver: Now I have a question: Is there a tuner/card that can do this trick...

    Recording timeshifted material?

    Is it possible to record from the passed timestream? Like taking a part of a timeshifted program and saving it to a file...? I have this facility on a JVC PVR and I'd like to see it in MediaPortal...

    Remote control stopped working

    I use a FireDTV-C box. Several months ago the remote control worked with MediaPortal but then it stopped working at all with MP. In the RC dialog (outside MP) it responds on all buttons as “active” but none of the settings there cause it to be active in MediaPortal. (I’ve checked the box in the...

    Problem starting up MP

    I have a problem starting up MediaPortal. More than half of my attempts to start MediaPortal results in a program freeze at the "initializing skin"-point of the start up. I have not been able to detect any pattern to this freeze but it has remained the same problem even after a total...

    Timeshift still always on in TV Server?

    So a Samsung T166 HD501LJ it is... I'm going to exchange my loudest seagate with one... Back on topic then, or closer anyway. :) I have noticed that it isn't possible to record the content of the timeshift buffer (or is it?). The JVC HD video that I own has that facility... would be great in MP?

    Timeshift still always on in TV Server?

    I named 2 different drives: ST3320620AS 16MB 320GB and ST3400620NS 16MB 400GB ...where I think the later 400GB drive is not acceptable as a "silent drive" but the 320GB drive is OK IMO (can't say that I really can hear it, and in comparison with 2 commercial products 1. Samsung DCB-P850Z...

    Timeshift still always on in TV Server?

    Don't know how to (and don't dare :) ) edit in your wiki, but I have a recommendation you could enter if you want: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS 16MB 320GB It is remarkably silent... I can't say I'm getting any disturbance at all and I'm rather fuzzy about noise from my computers...

    xmltv 2 ? (source + binary now available)

    Thanks Laban! So now I get a list of the channels in the Tuning channel column but totally empty in the Guide channel column... and all the "flags" are red... I'm sure this is not a bug or so in the xlmTV2 pgm but I really appreciate any and all help I can get to get MP to work properly! :)

    xmltv 2 ? (source + binary now available)

    THANK YOU Laban! Looks like a very nice improvement to the xmltv epg. I have a similar problem as a few other users, the tvguide.lst file. I have searched my harddrive and I cannot find the tvguide.lst file anywhere. I suppose there is a step in the activation of the epg or mp installation...

    Graphics card for ultimate picture quality

    Unstable - I know the feeling... I started off in this quest building a Vista machine. I had the idea I could use it both as an "admin" computer and a MP entertainment machine... That machine now only runs surfing, e-mail and such stuff... just could not have all the crashes Vista and MP...

    Graphics card for ultimate picture quality

    Do I understand correctly? You have used a Asus EN 7600GT in a Antec 2400 chassi? In that case it looks likely that also the EN 8600GTS would fit judging from the product images on the net, and if so, great news... :) Please let us know how it turned out. If the image quality is better is also...

    Graphics card for ultimate picture quality

    I now have a GeForce NX7300GS card but... 1. ...I wonder if I can improve the picture quality in any way by using a GF8600GTS card instead. Any improvement at all? 2. Also I wonder if any of you can say if the MSI-GF8600GTS silent pipe-card will fit into an Antec 2400 chassi. The chassi...

    Timeshift still always on in TV Server?

    "timeshit..." really? :D but seriously I really like this timeshiftbuffer feature. I have spent some effort on getting my HTPC silent enough to be able to sleep 3 meters away from it without noticing it being on at all... :cool: I've used ...a power supply without any fans: Silverstone...
