    Settings and plugins lost after upgrade from 1.2 beta

    I am running 1.2 beta with StreamedMP and Moving Pirctures and some other plugins.

    However, after upgrading to 1.2 RC all settings (exept TV-channels) and plugins have been lost!



    Have I been missing anything in the install procedure (I stopped the TV-service before installing 1.2 RC)?

    In general yes. Most plugins from 1.2 are still compatible with RC so if you upgrade everything should be working.

    What is definately not working is the MPEI installer. That will show nothing as being as compatible until the plugin devs update the MPEI packages for their plugins

    Re: Settings and plugins lost after upgrade from 1.2 beta

    I am 99.9999% sure that you did not select "update" but left the (default!) "clean install" option selected.

    Your previous MediaPortal userfiles folder and MediaPortal install folder has been backup'ed.
    You can use these backups to restore your plugins, settings, etc. (just copy the files back into the "MediaPortal" folders)

    After manually clearing my Fire Fox 6.0 browser cache and windows temp folder my third download from the same link succeeded in getting me the correct sized file and it upgraded my 1.2beta to 1.2RC seamlessly.

    So top marks to the team many :D:D:D :D

    I was simply going to sing a round of...Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy! and then, have everybody join in so we could do it in the round but decided a little dance was in order.

    Downloaded a few minutes ago without a hitch, upgraded over existing 1.20 Beta, restarted my pc (for the heck of it), clicked on that faithful big round button on my MCE remote, and "Hello, MediaPortal!"

    • quicker, faster, zippier, snappier - noticeably faster, I tell you!
    • darkening up the default screen backgrounds a bit and knocking the text shadow down did the trick
    • no sync issues between audio and video when using the ffdshow video decoder for TV
    • no picture freezing when skipping forward or back with custom settings
    • I never had any issue with DXVA and MP but good to know that code has been gone over
    It's worth saying again, I..T....I..S....F..A..S..T & smoooth! Can't believe how much so. Screen transitions (page/section, etc.) between different areas or features "just happen" now, click the button and before your thumb is off the button, you're there! lol

    I'll be trying it out on Windows 7 32- and 64-bit, as well, but on Windows XP 32-bit, works like it should.

    I luv MP so much, this version (1.20 Beta was first MP experience), I can't ever imagine needing anything else but I have to admit, knowing how great MP is with this RC, it only makes me look forward to what Team Media Portal will come up with or do in the future. And a VERY sincere "thank you" to that team.

    Cheers, All.
