    You seem to be able to understand English.....and the instructions on the CVS page regarding installation are in English as well so I don't see how someone needs to understand all the languages in the world.

    sorry, i thought that some users who download the cvs every day would save some time with this.
    as said the tool was not intended for everyone because a cvs can have bugs and may be unstable.

    i have taken the download of this tool down and appologise for any more traffic my tool has caused (hope it was not too much, because only 27 people have downloaded it).

    There are some very good points in this post. Bandwidth is a huge issue and can get very expensive. Even though I think this program (GETCVS) is great, I am going to discontinue use of this product. Right now I am really only looking for added features that I use or bug fixes that relate to me.

    Am I reading more into what you have written? You appear to be saying that you are going to stop using MediaPortal because you can no longer get immediate access to fixes in CVS.

    I have just re-installed RC2, and it seems a lot more stable than the latest CVS. I suspect that this is partly due to me installing one CVS over another. Perhaps we all need to be a bit patient. On the other hand, CVS is important since it allows users to test features and report bugs.

    Let's hope that CVS is back online soon. What about decreasing the frequency of CVS releases (one per day is enough surely for most people)? However, if there is no new release until 0.2.0 final, then we can't really complain. It's free, so let's not take liberties with the developers.

    WHAT?!?! Stop using Media Portal??? are you out of your MIND! hehe. No, I was talking about GetCVS. Because of the bandwidth issue, I can download CVS updates when I need them. I really don't need them every day, so downloading the same file everyday would be a waste.

    Bandwidth is obviously a big issue here, so one solution could be to reduce the size of the CVS downloads. How? Well, this kind of depends on how long off the 0.2.0.0 final release is.

    If the final release is still quite a long way off, perhaps an RC3 would be appropriate. The CVS downloads would then be based off that release, and would decrease in size quite considerably. I have noticed that the fairly recent addition of Raven's Razor skin has added almost 5 meg to each CVS download - that's a lot of bandwidth!

    I don't want to pressure the developers into releasing the final 0.2.0.0, or asking for a date, but if this affects people like high who end up paying for the bandwidth because of the excellent service they provide, please consider an RC3 if 0.2.0.0 final is still a way off.

    Alternatively, BitTorrent for the CVS downloads? Would help spread the bandwidth.
