How can I avoid the starting window / splash screen displayed during the start of MP?

I have disabled showing this big starting window?

    What do you exactly like to avoid? You only like to see a black background while Mediaportal is starting? In that case you can delete splashscreen.png and background.png from the skinfolder..

    But in that case you didnt't see the background in mediaportal itself aswell.. So you can also add a black image to the skin folder and call it; "splashscreen.png"

    Thank you, powermarcel10,

    I am not quite sure, if I understand right.

    You only like to see a black background while Mediaportal is starting?
    No, why do you think I should like to see a black background?

    But in that case you didnt't see the background in mediaportal itself aswell.. So you can also add a black image to the skin folder and call it; "splashscreen.png"
    Very sorry, I cannot understand, sounds very strange for me, what for should I do something like that?

    Sorry and thanks again.

    Well if I understand it right you didnt want to see the spashscreen when Mediaportal is starting right? So instead of the skin image you like to see nothing/black screen?

    Yes, exactly that is it, that is absolutely right, perfect.

    To see nothing would be a bit too less, to see a black screen would be...I would say, I would like to see, what I see for instance before starting MP, may be an entire window of a program being opened (without splash screen of MP in front of it). I would not like to see e.g. a black background / black screen or one of another color or a picture / image or anything else caused by MP (in front of any program I have opened), just do not see a splash screen of MP while starting.

    Turn off "user alternative splash screen" under MP Settings -> General -> Startup/Resume.

    Thank you, kiwijunglist,

    Yes, I had already turned "Use alternative fullscreen Splashscreen..." off, so that I see this splash screen / little window (that I do not want to see) while MP starts.

    Thanks for the screen shot.

    Thanks, @morpheus_xx that's sorted it. (FYI There were no leftovers in Program Files). Sorry I'm not involved with the development of MP2 any more - I'm having to do something else (still voluntary) which takes up all of my time. Now working harder than before I retired!

    Thank you. I had a look at that part of the menu, but there's no option for DVB subtitles. Probably it has something to do bit some issue of MP2 with PGS subtitles that I've read in several posts. Although I don't know if DVB subs are also PGS subs. I guess that it will be fixed in future versions of MP2. Anyway, if somebody is...

    You need to tell MP2, how to handle aspect ratios, that do not fit to the current screen resolution. Please go to Video Player Settings. I think you need "Intelligent Zoom" or "Pan&Scan". But remember, in this case you loose video information on top and bottom. I would prefer black bars. You could also select "Stretch", if you want to...

    Probably there is a conflict with other LAV versions. You may uninstall MP2 once and afterwards remove (backup) all settings in “/Program Data/Team MediaPortal/“. E.g. moving them to desktop. Then try reinstalling MP2.
