    Hi,

    I'm programming on the Webinterface....but it's hard, as my server is a Virtual PC, and therefore doesn't have a TV-card.

    I would be nice for us developers to have a Dummy TV-card to enable....I mean so the EPG data could be imported....and soo.

    Would be good as well, skins especially you need a card to see all the menus which this pc doesnt have. Makes for a lot of extra testing.

    I have been developing a plugin for intergration between Xbox Media Center and Media Portal and I to dont have a TV card in my Dev machine. I just copy the database over from my production box and if I trash the one on my dev machine I just copy it over again.

    This means that on my dev machine I have a database populated with a guide and a fake TV card that isn't there so recording obviously doesn't take place.

    Seems to work fine for me.

    Baahh....that's a work-around, not a solution.

    Thanks for the super quick reply! WinTV must download the EPG, you're right. I thought it got sent in the data packets over the air. They don't charge anything for it, so I'm somewhat puzzled.

    I found the resolution: I had set this registry value set to 0: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM] "EnableEvents"="0" As soon as I set it back to the default value 1, TV server did no longer say port 554 is bound and TV was working. On MediaPortal 1.4.0 and earlier the reg value could be set to 0 without any problem...

    MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
    What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...
