Ive been a long time MediaPortal user, but it's been a while since I last used it now. I was just wondering if the following features are available or not :
1) The ability to watch a program in the past from the EPG
You can go back in time in the EPG (back a day by pressing the Rewind /...
I still dont fully understand what ive done but am I right in saying that basically... even though I have it saying "Astra" it is picking up Eurobird.
If that's how it is, then that's how it is, it was worth a try at least! :D
Thanks again to both of you for your help - very grateful :D
The only other thing I noticed which may be nothing but thought I would mention it, the frequency I have put in as 11303000 but on kingofsat it says the frequency is 11302.75
Would that make any difference ?
Thanks for all the help guys...
I must admit I am getting a little lost but im trying to stick at it.
Ive started from scratch, by that I mean I removed all the current TV channels and cleaned up the TV card settings.
So... this is what TV Card 4 looks like
Doing a scan results in this...
Thanks for all the help your giving me guys, I really appreciate it.
So, I thought I would just show you how I have things currently set (im bound to have something wrong)
TV Cards 4 and 5 in TV Server are the 2 DVB-S receivers on my Blackgold TV Card.
TV Card 4:
TV Card 5:
The other possibility I thought of, was that maybe the channel does not broadcast 24/7 and I might be trying to preview the channel when it is not broadcasting. I dont know how to know if the channel broadcast's 24/7.
As you can probably guess, I dont really know what im doing! lol, I can receive from Astra 19.2E - thats all I know. A seperate LNB - I dont even know what that means! :(
Using these settings :
And then pressing the "Scan" button results in this:
With regards to adding the...
Im trying to add a TV Channel for me to watch but have got a little overwhelmed with all the options available and am not managing to progress.
I am in the UK, and am using a BlackGold BGT3595 TV card, using MediaPortal 1.2.2 on Windows 7 x86.
Here is a link to the website that contains...
I have one more question, hope you guys dont mind! :P
I currently use a Logitech Harmony 300i, and the volume buttons control my Logitech Z-5500. My Z-5500 is connected by SP/DIF, so when viewing a movie with DTS etc, changing the volume in MP itself has no effect, as the SP/DIF passthrough...
I am thinking of using this as I have recently purchased an iPod. However, I am completely dumb when it comes to this, as I have never owned one before. I just have a couple of questions.
1) Is there a server part that I need to download / install for this to work with mediaportal
2) If there...
Well, received my iPod today, going to see how I get on with it. Also think I am going to purchase an android phone & table in the near future, I got uses for them outside of MP, but I can try both iOS and Android for MP to see how I personally feel.
Thanks for all the help guys.
Thanks for all the advice mate.
Was leaning towards an iPod and think that is what I am going to get.
I may in the future also get an android device as some of the apps im interested in are exclusive to a certain OS.
One last question if I may?
Does android app automatically work on an...
Im not sure if this the correct place to post this or not, but here goes.
When it comes to computer's im quite clued up, when it comes to smart phones / tablet's etc... I have no idea. I have never owned a mobile phone and never used / touched a smart phone or tablet.
My question is :
This is a great looking skin, looking forward to giving it a try!
One thing though, I dont know if it's just me, but on the first screenshot where you are on the home menu, the blue bar at the bottom just looks out of place to me - I think it would look better if the blue bar wasnt there...
I think the problem that has arisen is that while Avallonis has been developed there hasnt been much/any development to Avalon, meaning that there are some nice features that have been added to Avallonis that arent present in Avalon, which means for people that like the vertical menu they have...
I fully understand that you do this in your own time and for free, I hope my comments didnt come across as unappreciative as I, as well as many others I would think, really appreciate the work you put in.
You have made a really nice MOD here that a lot of people like, and I just like to...
I personally think it would be better to spend your time on the current Avallonis and get all the bugs ironed and out and adding support for more plugins (MyEmulators for example) rather than spending your time creating a variation of the current skin, and then also maintaining both a blue and...
From me personally, I dont like it. One of the main things I like about avalon/avallonis is the colourscheme used. If this could be implemented as a theme, then fine, but not as the only choice of colour. I find these high contrast skins hard on the eyes, and also my TV makes a high pitch...
I know it's a stupid question, but its one I dont know the answer to so will just ask.
In the mini-guide that gets displayed what do the green/orange/red circles mean? Attached a screenshot of the screen im talking about.
I realise that, and that is indeed what I have done. I was simply making reference to DVB-T as this may be where I was getting my BBC,ITV etc.
Thanks for all your help and clearing up some of my confusion, when I reinstall TV-Server I shall have it pointing to 28.2E now I am a wiser man! haha...
Thanks for adding some useful details there for me, that helps clear things up a little bit.
As I said previously, I have been using astra 19.2E (no reason, infact I have no idea how I come to use that one) but in my TV channels I still have BBC,ITV,Channel 4 etc... which according to you, I...
I just find it all a little confusing as its something that I know nothing about. A couple years ago, I gave Windows Media Centre a try, and I seem to remember that it asked me for my postcode and that was it! it sorted everything else out for me. (As to how good a job it done im not sure - but...
Well, I hope you dont mind but I have a few more "bugs" to bring to your attention, and a couple of suggestions if I may ?
I'll start off with the bugs ;
1) When you return from a screen back to the main menu, often the selected option in not highlighted white.
2) Music Now Playing -...
Just recently installed PS++ and am just having a few issues. I have set it to machine type of "HTPC" and tried seeing how I got on.
I have a few problems, it SEEMS ok when watching TV, but if I watch stuff from OnlineVideos the machine will go to sleep sometimes while the video is still...
Well, here are a few issues ive discovered while using this great skin. Some may be mediaportal/plugin bugs/issues but im not 100% sure so have put them here.
1) Skin Editor - I can add menu items / sub-menus etc... I can update the names of existing entries etc, but no matter what I try I...
+1 from me.
(Using Avallonis Skin)
There are two .xml's of interest here;
mytvhomeserver.xml - I'll refer to it as "Manage TV"
mytvfullscreen.xml - I'll refer to this as "Watch TV"
And two mediaportal configuration settings, under the "TV" section ;
"Turn on TV"
