    I have also a smart tv. This is dealing f.e with the common user video directory from windows. If the windows media player is used to set the media information like the actors, the date of the film, and so on the smart tv is able to read them. If would be great if MP would support those information , especially because MP is collecting those information by its own.

    You can stream TV to smart TV's fairly easily using Servio. It worked on our Sony and Samsung smart TV's, but it meant that you could only set up a single channel to stream and you had to change channel via the PC running Servio:

    When I was looking into that, I found this which is much more interesting:


    That shows all the channels as DNLA stream so you can change channel on the DNLA client. If MediaPortal could do this, there wouldn't be any need for client boxes if you was using a smart TV.[DOUBLEPOST=1421245474][/DOUBLEPOST]
    I'm thinking of using Amazon Fire's as clients. How well does it work? Are there any glitches, lag or other problems? I was originally going to use my MediaPortal windows TV server, with Amazon Fire clients using XBMC. Is there any benefit to using MB3 instead of XBMC?

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.


  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
