Hi Treebeard,

I am unsure what have downloaded but I think it may be the CVS version. CVS is the current "work in progress at the minute" so you'd need to get a 'released' version installed first.
These are available on the the upper right of the Mediaportal homepage:
ie. https://www.team-mediaportal.com/
Install either "Release 0.1.3.0 or "Test Release 0.2 RC2" first. These have a setup.exe in them!
Try either of these first and if all is good (runs well, etc), then you can try a CVS version.
Note: You will need "Test Release 0.2 RC2" to try the CVS version. You simply extract the CVS version over the top of your "Test Release 0.2 RC2" install. Make sure you back up your working install as the CVS may not work for you. It doesn't for me but that's OK as I (read: my wife) wants stablility over "bleeding edge" technology. :wink:

I hope this helps.

FYI. I use "Test Release 0.2 RC2" and it's great. :D

Marty.

Perhaps it’s good to look here for WMC skin. In the wiki you find also further infos about setting up the media views. For further discussion it’s better to open another thread. I’ll mark the EPG topic as solved.

T Thanks for the reply. It looks like the Program Files (x86) requires backing up too. I did read the wiki (Backup and Restore) I will give it a try.

MP1 MP2 recording video DE
VLC has a browser add-on that allows you to start a video selected in your browser in VLC, you then can use its record button. Doesn't always work though, my guess is it won't on protected vids but it is the only thing I have found other than the excellent download capability of Online Videos when available.

that is absolutely not my impression, I think I reboot my htpc max a couple of times a year, usually (wild guess) when directx derails (symptoms are: frozen image, or sound only at video playback) Mind you, it's MP client only, no tvservice, and mp shutdown before sleep (and ofcourse start again at wake) Edit: leaving MP running...
