    I couldn't afford a whole new dedicated system for mp, so i turned over my webserver, with a celeron 1 ghz. Runs smoothly, TV/video/music playback only.

    I'm running on a Athlon 750MHz.
    Mostly smooth, but with the latest release I've noticed some
    performance problems watching recorded tv.
    Usually a restart of MP solves the problem.

    I am a bit concerned about cpu usage when not using MP.
    0.1.2.0 eats 50% CPU just running the gui.

    might have to do with directX 9 support etc. but it still feels
    strange that it consumes so much cpu doing virtually nothing.

    That is not supported. In folder view you can just navigate through the pre-defined folder structure, you loose also the filter options, thouse are only existing in library view. In MP2 I watched SBS 3D movies. Important ist just the TV supports it, because MP2 send them of course in splitted screen and the TV needs to merge them. I...

    Are you using a Windows "N" version or similar? Those versions are missing the Windows Media stuff, which need to be installed separately. The call which fails above is related to the Enhanced Video Renderer (EVR) which doesn't seem to find required filters

    MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
    What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...
