    Ok, I got some feedback to open a thread in the official forum and so here we are. You can grab the latest unofficial snapshot here:

    Download MediaPortal SVN-Snapshots


    These snaps are compiled nightly at about 01.00h (CET).
    You can also visit the official irc-channel (#mediaportal) to get a notice when its ready for download. The trigger !cvs gives you the latest update too.
    They are not pre-tested, so please keep backups.

    If you'd like the bleeding edge code and don't mind the inherent risks, upgrade to the snapshot releases as they become available.
    If stability is important to you, you might want to stay with the fully-tested releases.


    Small instructions:
    1) Install latest testrelease 0.2 RC2, not necessary if already done
    1a) install .NET Framework Version 2.0
    1b) install Mozilla ActiveX Control for Web Browser
    2) Backup your current installation! Copy the whole folder to a save place.
    3) Overwrite your MediaPortal files with the ones from the SVN Build
    4) execute the start.bat to reregister some needed files
    5) Run Configure. Sometimes the settings and database versions change from build to build, so you have to reconfigure your TV for example
    6) Hopefully enjoy the new version
    7) If not, just make a repair or backup your old files, and you will have the old version back.


    PS: dont post bugs directly into the bugs-forum, try to explain them first to a developer via irc to confirm it.

    Do I have to install all the incremental cvs versions or will it suffice with the latest cvs build??

    OK, here is probably a very stupid question, but here goes.

    I have been applying the latest CVS downloads but I can't wok out the naming convention used. What are the four numerals at the end of the file name meant to indicate? Is there a way of telling what was changed in each update? I'm new to CVS but I imagine there is a way to check a changelog? I looked in the CVS directory but couldn't find anything too useful.

    I do love the idea of the CVS downloads though. I could never be bothered to compile the latest code, since I really am not much of a programmer.

    Keep up the good work and roll around July 1 :)

    very easy... lets say mediaportal-cvs-06-06-2005--01-17.rar

    the last 4 numbers are the time the snapshot was compiled. Here we have 01.17h CET (Central European Standard Time). A point (.) between would be better I know, but this cause problems with the automatic ftp-upload.

    here you can subscribe to a mailinglist that explains changes, have fun to read ;)

    OK, so I guess it was a pretty stupid question. I was reading more into it.
    I noticed that there was almost a pattern to the numbers. For instance, lots of instances of 14-02 so I over-complicated it.

    Thanks for the information, I am now a member of that mailling list and look forward to the updates.

    Marcus.

    Note:
    it wil overwrite your capturecard.xml, so you have to restore it, or have to setup your capture card again.

    *Update*

    8) unrar the mencoder.rar to your MediaPortal-directory (only once). Its needed to convert mpg to xvid inside MP.

    *extracted from cvs-snapshots to keep filesize low*
