    Call me crazy, but I'm anxiously awaiting a Ball Tech Skin Theme for MediaPortal. That's the only thing that's going to get me to switch from MediaStream.

    You are very right Spragleknas, but this is not the first time this type of stuff has been posted and (again) it makes no sense at all on these forums...

    I would love to see Media MPV support in MP2, great little box for us who are forced to watch SDTV. (No real FTA HDTV Channels in Germany, no 1080i via DVB-T like australia, I feel so behind:()

    Dear Tipstir,
    Could you please explain what this is for and why you posted it here? From what I have read, this is for a different piece of hardware and software than MediaPortal and can't be used by MediaPortal. I'm not clear on why you posted this information. People running MediaPortal are very very unlikely to be using MVP.
    And while I don't personally care about the look of this skin, it's certainly not something that I can imagine people would want to see developed for MediaPortal when compared to the other skins already available.


    Were you hoping that skin authors here might take up your design and create one for MediaPortal?

    Just trying to understand and look forward to your explanation. Maybe there's something we can learn from your stuff.

    I did join here in 2007. Use MP back when it was first release though, but didn't join the site until last year. MVP forums I have joined.. Listen I just design and code skins and plugins. It something I enjoy doing.. I don't get paid for it so it not about making money. Over 10 years I use to make Windows shareware games until 2001. Now it's just skins and plugins..

    So nobody here has Hauppauge MediaMVP?

    If you can give us free EPG and everything works with the MediaMVP. Then you'll see more stuff for MP from me. I really just record and use the media on MVP and Rockbox device now. Don't turn the PC and TV into media entertainment center. The MVP does that for me. I only post skins and themes I create here to the market that's here. I don't speak German or French.

    I am pulling the pluge on this theme it's causing to much trouble here.. But it's good to see who's interested in Media MVP than me here. I got some new ideas this was just something I put together quick under 1 hr. Leopard VMCE is more to my taste. MP has Photo orb feature can't do that on MVP though.

    More members here who own the MVP like you need to step up to the plate and tell mods here. I just post skin themes for this wonderful device. I can create themes for MP for MVP it where I rather go for!


    No dir, I just share my work here as I go by the number of views who seem to be interested. I don't have a count here of how many of you use MVP. The default GUI is boring for it. MP has some themes I can reproduce on MVP for MP. Those are available on my blog. There are themes that no everyone is going to like or not. That's the fun in designing new stuff.

    New MP designs like Picture Flow can't be done on MVP maybe with some new coding it could be done but the device only has 32MB or RAM just enough for what it can do right now..

    Tipstir -

    I've used a box similar to the MVP years ago. They are great for connecting to your TV and network and using a simple web browser-based gui to browse and play video, photos, and web pages.

    However, once I started using a PC instead of the MVP-type box as my htpc, there was no need to use the MVP box. The htpc does everything the MVP box does, and a lot more. However, the pc takes a LOT more configuring.

    I don't think you will find very many people on the MediaPortal forum that use the MVP box, because there's no point running both. Either a person invests time in setting up a htpc system, or they use a simple box like MVP. But not both.

    There might be a handful of people that happen to use both for some reason, but I don't think it's very worthwhile trying to attract attention for MVP here in the MP forums. People that use an MVP box will not be hanging out here; they'll be hanging out on MVP forums.

    You might get less frustrated and find more interested people on other forums.

    Eh.. Why? I can see the reason to tell devs etc., but telling us... what?

    Anyway: Your posts are currently not more relevant than post regarding Siemens dishwasher; sure some forum members got it - but it does not have anything to do with MP...

    Time to wrap this up before it gets out of hands. Good luck with your future skindevelopment, no matter..

    For MediaMVP v1.15 Leopard VMCE Update

    I am now hosting my own files so this would be a direct download:
    http://members.cox.net/tipstir/MediaMVP_themes/mmvpleopard115.exe

    This update contains new support for full internet transverse color for date/time/year
    For Internet Web Browser and Internet Weather
    The Weather radar maps have to be gif so they would animate jpg for stills
    Web Screen Capture along with myweb.bat is included

    Those who have interest for MP version of this skin_theme send me email to: tipstir@yahoo.com
    I can't promise anything but I'll look into it by year end. First batch will be images to work with
    most or current themes line up. Until I get the hang of it...
