If I understand correctly, just give the location of your MP executable as a parameter to mp_start. e.g.: mp_start.exe "c:\program files\My MediaPortal\MP.exe" (don't forget the quotes )Hammer9600 said:I just wonder how I should change the the location of Media portal, do I have to install Borland Builder on my comp to change this myself, or is there an easier way?
The popup never appears when MP is started in fullscreen mode. Try unchecking the "Start Media Portal in fullscreen mode" option in the general settings. In fact I only have two options checked: "Auto hide mouse cursor when inactive" & "enable GUI sound effects".Rick164 said:However it seems to hang when starting(99% cpuload load from mpstart.exe), it happends when mediaportal is intializing the skin and it says waiting for popup in the mpstart.exe).
If it isn't due to that, it might be because the loop checking when the popup appears is hogging too much processing... I've updated the loop to pause 1 second per iteration and I increased the logging. Please use the following executable and send me the output by starting the program with:
mp_start [optional executable path] > log
Since the log can get quite long, you might want to send me an email with the log file at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope this helps!
Unfortunately I don't know how to configure the mce remote. I have a keyspan remote, that allows me to completely configure the actions per button and per application. It also allows me to configure any remote control (e.g. my VCR buttons on my TV remote) for use with MP. I just map a button of the remote to a keyboard shortcut.[/url]Rick164 said:Also another tiny question how can you make mpstart.exe run with the media center 2005 remote(green button now loads MS mce2005)?
