    Hi seul48

    Welcome aboard! :)
    I'm not sure what error you're talking about - you don't seem to say. Can you please post your TV Server logs (as required by support forum rules) otherwise I'm afraid we have no way to know what the problem is so we can't help. You can use option 3 in the watchdog (information in our wiki -->here<--) on a single seat installation, otherwise just zip up the log directory (Windows 7: C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\log).

    Hi seul48

    It looks like TV Server is trying to connect to an SQL Server, not a MySQL server:

    Open up the Gentle.config file from your TV Server installation folder in a text editor like notepad and search for the section that looks like this:

    You need to set the first line as follows:

    DatabaseHostServer is the name of the computer running the MySQL server.
    Database is the name of the database, which is MpTvDb by default.
    I *think* the default User ID and password is MediaPortal.

    So make those changes according to your local setup, then save the file. After that try to start TV Server...

    Try to enter the IP of the PC where the mySQL server is running. Check your firewall setting regarding your ports.

    Did not work because mysql user is "root" without quotes not MediaPortal.

    Ahhh, thought I might have picked the wrong username - MediaPortal is the DB user account in my [multi-purpose] DB. :sorry:

    And I guess you know about the case sensitive nature of the password...
    Was there any noticeable change in the symptoms? I think we should probably check your logs again to see what is happening now.
