    I have just installed the very latest version of everything, and when loading up MePo it causes one of those windows errors, that asks you to send a report and then closes the application down. However, whilst the error report thing is up, MePo continues to load in the background and actually responds to my remote when loaded up!

    I have ran the debug mode and included the logs. Can anyone get anything from this or should i do a full re-install of MePo.

    I was a bit stupid really in the installation, done everything in one go, and only tested when all configured. Heres what i done in the correct order.

    Full uninstall of MePo 1.0.2
    Install MePo 1.1 RC1
    Installed v latest StreamedMP
    Installed v latest Moving Pictures
    Installed v latest My Tv Series
    Installed v latest Online Videos
    Configured and imported everything from the configurator, ie films, series, pictures, online videos, rss feeds, audioscrobbler & last fm.
    Then fired up media portal

    I know, i should of done things one at a time, but i havent touched this installation since August 2009 (Not had to, was running fine).. i was a bit eager to get it going!

    Does it happen after a reboot, mine did this on first start and not seen it since, but the date format seems to be screwed according to logs so begin there, could be windows or MP issue.

    Chances are you are experiencing the infoservice bug. Infoservice is installed by streamedmp.

    1) Go into StreamedMP editor and disable 5 day weather and the weather in the top right corner.
    2) Go into MP config and disable inforservice
    3) Fire up mediaportal, go visit your weather.
    4) Close mediaportal
    5) Enable Infoservice and config the weather as you please in StreamedMP editor.

    All should be fine.

    I had this, but on windows 7.

    I looked at my logs and there was some sort of database error. It was trying to use sqlserver for something (although can't have been an important something as still had functionality like you).
    I already had sqlserver on the machine and i found if i uninstalled it and reinstalled mediaportal then the problem went away.

    Might be worth a shot if nothing else works?

    DR Tone,

    I done what you suggested, and the error still came back when infoserice was re-enabled. However, i was able to move the error message to the site and load up Weather from MediaPortal, i then reset it and on the next bootup it worked a treat!

    Thanks very much.
