    My idea was a specs card like this - one for each HTPC at the show - visitors will surely like such availabel.

    inifinite.loop: Great looking folder. I really dig the design. How about showing Music as well (e.g. Now Playing with Lyrics)?

    Button: I would make a "flat" button. The 3d effect is not too good and it would fit better to the other media. Everything else is just a media center should be on the lower half & the URL on top (the slogan is beneath the logo everywhere else, so it should be the same here).

    Not sure if it's been mentioned before but I think a spreadshirt or cafepress store with MP branded products would be cool.... That way I could talk all the guys at work into setting up an MP box after they comment on my funky looking MP coffee mug!

    Yeah, I tried that, and it looked very boring. :confused:
    All the effects were added because of that - but this could be just me. :)

    Nice idea, will try that.

    I like both of the two new stickers =) But I am having a hard time understanding why you want to include cads with system specs on it? When passing out flyers, what is the positive side to having details about a computer somewhere that is running MP. Base system requirements sure... but "My specs" or "Current system specs". I think it is good idea to display what hardware the HTPC is running, but that is something that can be printed on a home printer on card stock and then propped up on the HTPC. I dont think it needs to be given away with the brochure. As for the show I will be doing, all PCs will be running 7 or Server 08 R2 (as these PCs are also my in home HTPCs). The hardware on these computer though range from a Pentium D 2.8 w/2GB DDR to a AMD Dual Core 1.8 w/3GB DDR2 to Intel i7 w/8GB DDR3. Plus the tablets and atom cpu of the netbook.

    Maybe I am missing something about the info cards to passed out with brochures. Or were these cards never meant to be given out?

    As for website stuff, I will be recording video, offering a live feed and taking photos. All of these can be displayed on the website if u wish.

    I would really like to show off sports too, as 70% of Americans favor one sport or another. But the fact that TVS highjacks my database, so that If I want to show off sports then MP is gunna look ugly. So I am torn between no sports and not getting everyone's attn, or showing off sports but have it look like crap when I do. What do u guys think? Sports or no sports at the trade show?

    Here is more detail on the issue: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/my-tvseries-162/help-my-importer-has-gone-crazy-96796/

    I was not suggesting to give the info cards away - my idea was to provide you with a infocard design that matches the design of the brochour. :)


    Can not help you with this - only TvSeries developers can.

    @I.Loop: OHH! Ya, okay that is a good idea =) I was mistaken... thot you wanted to pass them out WITH brochures =) Ya the cards should share the same theme as flyers and brochures.

    Ya, I know u cant fix it... I dont think Damien can even fix it as it is a by product of sqlite, from what I have been told. But I still am curious as to if I should bring sports games or not. The problem is show off sports games in state that does not flatter MP and get all the sports fans attn, or leave sports alone and maybe miss out on some ppl.

    *argh*

    Well, it seems that the issue is only caused when you add (more?) data manually to the database, right?
    Is there no other (manybe not so shiny) way to present sports?

    How about onlinevideos? Internet available at that show?
