Why do I repeatedly have to go to the config to config everything?. Well it would be nice to select which codecs I wish to use to record television other than mpeg2 within media portal itself. Oh and i've come across this filter called Matrixmixer, it's pretty neat!, it actually enables 5.1 channel surround comming from a 2.0 source and does is quite well, maybe that could be implemented aswell, since it is open sourced.

And another, is it possible to have visualizations while playing audio and possibly video?

And one more lol, how bout cd "backups"? might be cool eh?

I absolutely love media portal!, i've been using it since 1.0.3 and i've been hooked ever since!, I really respect what you guys are doing, you've far surpased anything microsoft could have come up with. Media center has nothing on Media Portal, shows what a collective of minds who's goal is not to make money can do.

Keep up the great work

    For TV cards that do software encoding you can select the encoder that should be used. For TV cards with hardware encoding this is not possible since it is done on the TV card itself. MP can't replace the chips on the TV card ;-)

    Already in (for music). Select Window MediaPlayer as audiorenderer in the Music section in the configuration program.

    Well what I really ment is

    The ability to change codecs within media portal itself, not from within the configuration app, like a button below tvguide or something so it would be possible to change the codecs. But nevermind really lol, it's kinda stupid I guess. Just i'm building a HTPC for my dad and would like some ability to configure things like that within media portal itself. It will be a dedicated media box, media portal loads at startup.

    And thank you for the visualization tip lol, I didn't even think of that one.

    I am still here, thanks for the input, so I have now settled on mp1, I am not afraid of a lot of tweaking. Good news on tuners is I can run side by side with my WMC setup, as my tuners are using DVBlink to combine channels for WMC, so WMC is using 8 virtual tuners from DVBlink while MP is using the tuners directly. Of course they are...

    I'm a returnee to MP after several years and want to use my CEC remote box. I have the mpe1 files but have no idea where to copy them to. Can anyone point me in the right direction as my memory of the config is hazy and probably out of date anyway.

    MPExtended (Mobil access) for MP2 only for TV access It's available and properly working since beginning of this year... I've used it until I switched over from DVB-S to SAT>IP in Spring 2018 where such things are no longer necessary at all.
