Configuration on Remote Share? (1 Viewer)

Hey guys:

I have been following the development of this plugin, waiting for the search/filter functionality (I have a rather large collection) before I move away from the default MP MyMovies. Currently I have MP setup so all configurations are on a mapped drive so I can update the movie database from a different computer than my HTPC. So MP is setup to use z:\ for everything which is mapped to a network share to my storage server. I realize that MovingPictures auto-updates from the collection which sort of negates my need to use a different computer, however is there any problem with the current configuration or should I reset MP to use the local disk?

You just need to be careful that you do not have MediaPortal on your HTPC running at the same time as the configuration program on your remote system. If they both are running at the same time it could cause problems and ultimately corrupt your database. Your setup is not bad, you just need to be careful about concurrently running programs.
