I have my PC set up in the living room, using a monitor for PC usage & the tv for HTPC usage.

When I'm surfing the net or using the PC occasionally my other half decides to watch or listen to something using it, that's not an issue as such as the pc can handle it well, but I'm having an issue with using the remote.

Basically when I make the monitor 'active' by clicking on something on it or typing in a browser etc, it takes control from the tv, meaning I have to move the mouse over onto the tv screen & click it before she can use the remote.

Does anyone know of any possible solutions to this? Software solutions or workarounds I mean, lack of any cash means a dedicated HTPC is out of the question!

Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...
