    I've been using MP now for about 4 months and thought i'd post my setup (moved from XBMC and so glad i found MP)

    My Setup is basic for AmbiLight, but it works great!!!

    - HTPC (Windows 7, MP)
    - Arduino UNO R3 - Amazon for £11
    - 50 WS2801 LED's - Ebay for about £30 (From China)
    - 12mm Trunking - Homebase for about £10-15
    - Software - Processing IDE\Adalight

    The frame was just trunking i got from homebase, cut and then joined using the corner pieces and some hot glue to keep it in place. Holes drilled and the LED's popped into place (Attahced a few photos)

  • 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.
