After I managed to install basic components for the MP1, I had problems getting the main viewing screen to open, without going to (tv server) section for (preview) of channel selection with a view screen. Do I have to download & install a (skin) for a tv viewing screen, on the PC at (tv setup)?
Which (plugin) is recommended during tv setup for the PC?

    Have you been able to scan for TV channels using MP TV Server Config. program, see first screenshot below? You do not need to install a skin for TV, the basic set up should include 3 different ones each can be selected via "Settings" in the home screen, see 2nd screenshot below. Please check out the TV setup in the wiki here.

    Reply: I was able to scan for channels with the TV Tuner for MP1, that also has a media center for OTA channels.
    The EPG data base of the Hauppauge HD Duel Tuner, has a good scan of TV channels for recording also.
    The (Radio Setup) is also why I decided to try MP1, as a backup like the Windows Media Center I used to use, that's now not supported.

    Exactly what happens when you run Media Portal and select TV from the home screen as shown in the attached screenshot (showing the "Default Wide HD" skin?

    The United States version of MP1 does not have this configure shown.
    It's where I started to have problems opening a view screen to watch OTA TV channels.

    The screenshot you attached is of the MP website!?? If you have downloaded and installed MP1 you should have an icon somewhere on your Windows desktop or Start screen as shown in the screenshots below, what happens when you start (double click/click) on this icon?

    I am still here, thanks for the input, so I have now settled on mp1, I am not afraid of a lot of tweaking. Good news on tuners is I can run side by side with my WMC setup, as my tuners are using DVBlink to combine channels for WMC, so WMC is using 8 virtual tuners from DVBlink while MP is using the tuners directly. Of course they are...
