    Hi,
    i don't know if this is the right place to post this, but here we go...

    In the last couple of months i felt the urge to switch away from Mediaportal. While still working very well there were all this shiny new possiblities with Android TV / Kodi, etc. MP seemed a little bit prehistoric in comparision to the alternatives. Kodi has the ability to play on multiple clients-os's, and the new TV's are a computer itself nowadays, so no need for an old HTPC in your living room, right?

    I googled a little bit and my decision fell on a VU+ Uno 4K as server and Kodi on Android TV as Frontend. After setting up the whole thing, more and more problems came up.
    No autostart of Kodi, when TV is powered on, a wonky Enigma 2 PVR plugin, that often times wouldn't Kodi allow to start, no configurable view in the movie list, etc...
    So i discarded Kodi as frontend and tried the VU+ VTi Image. But this can't deny it's Linux base. So many plugins with barely exisiting descriptions what they actually do. TV frontend was great with great channel switching times, but i couldn't figure out how to watch a single movie from my NAS. Perhaps i was to lazy to search enough, though.

    So log story short: After a 4-5 week struggle, i switched back to good old MP. By far the best mediacenter for TV out there in my opinion.

    I know there is much competition these days with Kodi and Android TV, but keep up the good work. Despite having flaws too (show me one software, that doesn't) it fits my needs the best and i think it's a great piece of software. Big thanks to all the developers who work on this thing...

    Just something i wantet to say ... :)

    Have a nice day.

    I didn’t know this, however as they hadn’t announced anything new for a while I should have guessed. Sad though. I’ve had a harmony remote for about 15years. Now I’m using the elite with hub and it’s amazing. hopefully they stick to their word and keep up support.

    Hi, I'm quite new to this forum so please excuse me if I'm short on my understanding on how this works, I've been trying to find a solution for a couple of days but I've been yet unsuccessful. I'm trying to use an old HP Touchsmart (iq500) as a TV screen to live stream my PS2, as I haven't got enough room/money for a new TV. The...

    Hi. Network tuners can be shared even on the same PC (done it often while testing different software, I'm using SAT>IP tuner that are similar to hdhomerun tuner but for European DVB). But you can not use them on both systems at the same time ofc.. Means if WMC is using a tuner (e,g, for a scheduled recording) MP can't use the same...

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...
