I have 2 PC's with MP installed. I have some movie ISO files on one PC. Is there a way through media portal for the other PC to access those same video's?

    Hi there

    Assuming network between them, you can just add the network location as a video folder.
    example: \\pcname\sharename\FolderWithIsos
    I you wnt to take it a step further and even share the MP databases, look at this page in manual. Not recommended for beginner.

    Thank you for your reply. I had tried this but it was not working so I assumed I was not doing this correctly. I uninstalled MP, than reinstalled/configured MP and now it works.

    Well, there is nothing wrong in the log. I have personaly tested the bitstreaming after DVD resume, and I can confirm that the LAV audiodecoder shows status 'bistreaming' on the output. What is your LAV status?

    The layout of remotes does vary from one model/brand to another. I too find that some layouts are better than others. Generally, I prefer the buttons that I use most-frequently to be positioned near the center of the remote, which is not the case with that particular Dell remote. :( Battery life is often a problem. A remote that I...

    MP has adjustable audio delay. I don't know whether this works for all video formats, but it certainly works for TS files, and may work for MP4 files. There is a slider that allows you to adjust the audio delay while playing a video. Press the INFO button on the remote control to display the OSD, select the "Audio" icon, and then...
