Since installing MP 1.17 single seat over a fresh installation of Windows 7 Pro SP1, I occasionally have error messages when opening the EPG in MP client, complaining that the server cannot be found. Changing the MP client configuration to use 127.0.0.1 instead of the computer name does not seem to help. The error messages further complain that MP client cannot connect to the TV Server DB because port 554 is blocked by the Windows 7 firewall, but I do not see how that can be a factor in a single-seat installation. Even if it were, all MP components have inbound firewall rules allowing them access to all ports via both TCP and UDP. Furthermore the wiki page on Firewall Settings says:
If you use Windows Firewall in Windows 7, you should not need to open any ports manually for normal operation.I now have a default installation using SQLite. Logs are attached.
