    Avoid SVN upgrade problems:
    1. Install RC4 and do *not* make any configuration changes
    2. Copy/Backup the installed folder for future SVN upgrades
    3. Extract the latest SVN into the MediaPortal folder and overwrite old files
    4. Execute the 'start.bat' file to (re)register any new modules
    5. Redo your entire configuration
    (This is somewhat clumbersome, but it will avoid any weird crashes reported by some users)

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.


  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
