    As most of us who like to keep sports games already know, as it stands, MP is not friendly to Sports Fans as it is for Movies and TV Shows. Well with your help, we can change that (if only on a small scale) and in doing so we will be able to show off our collection of sports in style!

    How you ask? Well it is simple... visit this link Issue 588 - mptvseries - More self configurable fields - MP-TVSeries: plug-in for organizing TV shows in MediaPortal - Google Project Hosting , make sure you are logged in and "Star" the issue. This issue will simply allow us to input our banners, poster and fan art for sports into TVSeries so that our games can be displayed along with other recorded TV shows.



    Damien is an excellent programmer. He knows that he needs to give the people what they request the most. So if we all give this issue a "Star" then it will become obvious that offering this feature would be a positive thing for his plugin.

    Please, if you don't mind... make a post or comment that you like this idea, or simply "Thank" this post so that other people who might read this see people supporting it here they will be more inclined to go to the issue tracker and "Star" issue 588!

    Thank you for listening to my rant =)

    I've added the following to the Issue 588:

    This, along with the new option for jumping to categories straight from basichome will finally make my MePo experience perfect.

    I made a very simple change to tvseries so that it can pick up custom artwork from disk, follow this guide on how to do it:
    Frequently Asked Questions - Custom Artwork

    Attached is a MediaPortal 1.2 Beta compatible test dll if you want to check it out.

    The 1st person I hear about using this feature cuz he or she is too lazy to upload to thetvdb..... I will hunt you..... I will find you.... and make your MP to where it only plays "Three's Company" reruns. =) Please only do this for sports, DVD extras, kids specials etc.... only the things that thetvdb does not want added to their site.

    Yes, yes, YES!!! Thank you!
    I will try to put all vacation videos in one folder, and then differentiate them by 'seasons' :D And soon I can see all my DVD extras with pictures :p And sports :cool: And my collection of Dolby-DTS-THX Demo Trailers ;)
    :D

    (only problem is that wife and child is using the MP right now, oohhhh can't wait [​IMG] )

    EDIT: OK, the MP is mine! One episode done, only 624 episodes left (most are educational episodes, like Photoshop course etc). I'm so happy now :) Lucky for Damien that he is not here, I would kiss him ;)

    Okay here is a quick youtube video I made of my sports and how they look inside MP-TVS. I used the new beta aMPed skin as it is (currently) the only "Sports Friendly" skin. It does not have labels for Acotrs/Guest Stars info so you can add you team members/game starters. It also automatically switch labels for sports... Director becomes "Coach" Writer becomes Commentators as well as changes the headers "Genre > Series > Season > Episode" to Sports > Team > Year > Game. Sorry that the video of video section is a bit choppy. The video I make for sports promos for the show will be done on one of the good computers.
