    Nothing wrong with the sentiment here ... but I think calling the feature 'basic' undervalues the complexity of the plugin, and the work undertaken to deliver and support it.

    Fundamental might be a better way of putting it...

    Not sure I agree with you. DJBlu's code has been around for a long, long time...........surely there has been ample opportunity over the years (sic!) to have this done.
    For me it makes it frustrating to have to re-install and muck around with the entire thing every time a new release comes out..........and to the point where one starts to look elsewhere for MP alternatives without the hassle........or simply not bothering to upgrade ever!

    If we all send a message to MP management perhaps? - https://www.team-mediaportal.com/contact-us-at-mediaportal

    Thanks benoire will try to play over the weekend - I have built mediaportal a few times and used to compile xbmc back in the day for the xbox etc but have only really used diffs before when compiling things in Linux never used git so this will be something to have fun with... I assume the conflict handling will be similar - will let you know if I get this working :0)

    Erm.... Where is the code for 1.5? The link on the first post looks to be for customdatagrabber.dll, and in the mediaportal 1 git I only see a branch for 1.3 and 1.4 not 1.5. Have I missed something or do I need to try to patch the 1.4 code into 1.6? Just wanted to check as I guess 1.4 will have lots more conflicts.

    You're right, I can't see it anywhere. DJBlu must have compiled on his own system.

    @DJBlu any chance we can get the source code for 1.5 so we can merge with 1.6 as it's not on Github that we can see.

    I'd be interested in getting a 1.6 version of this soon too, as I have a window of opportunity next week to do an upgrade / reinstall from 1.3 while the missus is away on business, and I won't get an earful about why the "telly box" is misbehaving while sorting out the inevitable glitches :)

    I tried to merge the 1.4 code with the latest master and had a couple of conflicts in tswriter.cpp that I fixed manually and the compile from the .bat worked but when running through nsis To make the installer I got some errors.

    I am re-checking out incase I screwed something and will try again.

    Can anyone else that has compiled this before check and let me know if the only conflicts should be in tswriter or if there are others and this has caused the issue and my checkout was incomplete for whatever reason.

    Thanks

    Hi there,

    I would expect more issues (not just conflicts) than just in TSWriter.

    I will have to look at the code soon.

    Anyone heard from DJBlu recently?

    Unfortunately not, I was hoping that he might keep an eye in and update this every now and then... unfortunately without his plugin source code either, we are all a bit stumped should certain providers change their groupings etc. and I am in no way good enough to make a new plugin!
