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.

    This seem to happen only occasingly for some users. I never saw it for example with my windows 10 system. As you said it doesn't cause any mis-functionality, it is just annoying. It's on the bugfix agenda for next MP2.4 release. That's correct, there are two options: Using the navigation buttons or the mouse wheel. It's also...

    "I've installed all this software on my desktop computer." is perhaps a clue. Is this PC somehow also physically connected to the smart TV? If not then you are going to struggle. The usual setup is that the PC running MP is connected to the TV with an HDMI cable so that to view the output from the PC you would switch the TV...
