TV-Server Version: 1.0.0.0
MediaPortal Version: 1.0.0.0
Windows Version: Windows XP SP3

Hi all, I just recently got MediaPortal but am about to give up because i cannot get the TV-Server Database connection set-up

I have two varying errors, the first is that it complains about the schema name which is set to: 'MpTvDb'. Sometimes I also get the error that the user is not associated with a trusted SQL server connection. I am using Microsoft SQL server 5 Express and have added other user details and they all through the same error.

Thanks for any help you can give!

Anyone got any ideas?

If a try MySQL i get an error saying my local IP address 192.168.x.xx is not allowed to connect to server or something similar.

Yes I do meet all the requirements and have used the default user and password, in the MS SQL I have even made another user which throws the same error.

very odd. i had a lot of issues with using SQL databases when i was first setting up MP as well, in my case i needed to update a few bits to meet all the requirements needed. cant help you any more than that really as im not an expert on them, but if i were you id raise this problem in MediaPortal 1.0 general talk as youre more likely to get a response.

hope you get it sorted.

Yer I made sure about the caps/non caps :)

Any chance a moderator can move this topic to the area suggested (MediaPortal 1.0 general talk) by eetaylog?

Thanks for your help so far guys :)

    I also get the error that the user is not associated with a trusted SQL server connection

    Are you running this as a admin account, users may not have relevant permissions.

    This is the right place for the post as SQL does relate to TVServer.
