This certainly has a lot going for it.

I eventually got round to setting it up. Installed without issue and works fine apart from PIP and EPG. PIP works but stays behind the main screen so you can't see it. This is possibly a VLC set up issue though.

Are you planning on upgrading the GUI, or maybe go down the lines of the Argus TV client which shows the channels and EPG etc then opens VLC to show the TV.

Excellent work though and looking forward to the next update.

It seems none of this has been put into source control (unless I'm looking in the wrong place). Is that the plan at some point?

    Does this application work with the actual release of Mediaportal?
    Which VLC-Version is needed?

    Thx

    Hello: Today I built MPTvClient for 1.14 MediaPortal. It connects fine to the 1.14 TV Server. However I do not have a 1.14 configured to test it completely. Since it connects to the server and doesn't crash at all, I suspect it will work fine. I am attaching the binaries. If someone who uses the app can try it out with 1.14 that would be great. Once I hear that it works I'll put the source here. The only thing I changed of significance is I removed the registry based code that was saving the preferences and replaced it with code that uses the Settings resource. Which means you will have to configure this version of MPTvClient. Thanks and good luck!

    Sounds good to me Wizard, thanks!

    Here is the source. If someone wants to put it into GIT feel free. Significant changes are:
    1) I created a "External" folder for all referenced assemblies except the .NET ones. This way you don't need to build MediaPortal to get them. I just installed MP and got them that way. For the life of me I couldn't get MP 1.14 to build. I think the build wiki might be out of date.

    2) I removed the registry based code that was saving the preferences and replaced it with code that uses the Settings resource.

    A couple more cosmetic changes like to use the MP icon and make the version match the MP version it is built against.

    That's about it, have fun and many thanks to Gemx for making this initially, it is very handy to have something this lightweight. I may try and render native instead of using VLC, unless someone has done this already and is willing to share?

    Thanks!
