    Hi!

    This is my special MediaPortal release from now on called Disaster Edition. It is based on MP 1.1 SVN but does include some important features which I need and MP does not have at the moment. This build is NOT supported by the MP Team but is permitted by them :) So if you plan something like me on your own please be so kind and ask the team.

    Features / Patches in the latest release:
    - includes NEW recording option "weekly everytime" on channel X (f.e. Dr. House, all shows on thursday every week)
    - selection of "only basic home", "only normal home" or normal home + basic home (under skin settings)
    - play dvd from harddrive / networkdrive
    - manual recording cleanup in tvserver possible
    - skip mediainfo for .ts files when start playing (faster playback on slower networks for recordings)
    - watch recordings without rtsp (so f.e. comskip is working)
    - IRSS patch so that IRSS is restarted after initialisation of minidisplay
    - no key press sound when you watch a show or play music
    - using thumb jpg file in same path of recording if present
    New since RC5:
    - dshowhelper v20 from Owlsroost (See https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...nter-dshowhelper-community-development-81148/ for details)
    - core.dll (debug) - there are some people who get "cannot play" under tv recordings and win 7 x64 - this is a workaround
    - new card allocation code in tvserver engine (thanks to rksmith) - this code will not be included in MP 1.1 by the team as it COULD cause wrong behaviour with tv card allocation but as (at least for me) the actual code has a lot of bugs too (wrong card allocation stopping live tv AND recording instead only recording)
    - new graph paused code - tvserver graph is now only paused instead of stoppen thx gibman

    COMPLETE OLD Changelog:
    Show Spoiler

    If you want you can add my dll for the TvMovie Importer to the Pack.
    It writes the episode Name into the episode num field.

    I can´t find the source right now, but i allso modified the xmltv importer to write the episode name in the first Row of the description so you can see it in the TV-guide details window. I will try to digg it up.

    P.s.: I really love the smart stretching
