    Hi mediaportalists,



    I'm pulling my hair out again.

    After 5 hours of unistall/install I have Mp 1.1 Beta running but I can't load the TV3 guide and I can't see Tv3Plus1 in the channels, yet I can see them both in the TV Server Configuration. MP plays the TV3 Plus guide detail when I go into the TV Guide.

    I'm using Revens tvguide.xml but I'm not sure where it gets imported to. I looked in the tvguide.xml file for TV3 listings and they are there.

    So where is the updated TVGUIDE held in the TV Server?

    Cheers
    Bernard

    Hi Bernard.
    Please see attached document describing the steps to go through. It's not perfect but close enough that it should give you the information you need. Good luck.
    John

    Well i just got given a samsung 5.1 home audio system today, (could be the best present in my life to date :D )

    The only problem i've got is that the input on the system is either RCA, or spdif optical. The output on my tv is spdif coax

    Has anyone else ever come across a problem like this? I've spent some time searching and I've come across a product that should help me out Toslink Optical to Coaxial (S/PIDF) Converter

    But i was wondering if anyone else has found an equivalent or better solution in NZ?

    What outputs does your media centre have, you could run your normal stereo sound upto the tv and run a seperate optical etc out to the samsung system

    @ Omen - Good score! :D

    Why would you want to use your TV for sound? It'll never compare to the sound you will get from your 5.1 system (if it's decent), no matter how good a TV you've got. My amp is ancient, but as far as sound is concerned it blows away my modern 50" HD plasma that's supposed to have some sort of mind blowing surround sound thing going on - yeah right, it's a TV, not a sound system.

    Just my opinion though.

    my motherboard also has a coax spdif port on it, so either way i'll need to get that adaptor.

    at the moment i'm just running my sound and video straight into the tv via hdmi courtesy of the video card.

    my main reason for still wanting to use the tv for sound is to get sky and the media pc running through it without having to switch from aux to digital in. (also i used to get angry stares every time the sky remote made media portal click back when i had my creative 2.1 speakers)

    I've used that converter before when I was in the same situation, and can report that it works well. Simple solution right there.

    You can pick up the same from Jaycar Optical Toslink to S/PDIF Coaxial Digital Audio - Jaycar Electronics
    here in NZ. I think they also supply it in kit form for half the price. It works well but bear in mind it needs AC power.
