How to configure Mediaportal as TV client (1 Viewer)

I had MediaPortal (1.0) running in the server - client TV mode - worked fine.
After a crash (which had nothing to do with mediaportal) I had to reinstall mediaportal (not tv server, that still worked) - I chose i want HDTV and want to run it as tv client.

But mediaportal now thought that it is in standalone TV mode - shows me the TV configuration options for adding a TV card - but not to act as a TV client.

I deinstalled everything (mediaportal and tv-server), reinstalled everything, but mediaportal still thinks it is in standalone mode.

So my question:
How can make mediaportal behave like a TV-client again (Instead of mediaportal with builtin TV)?
Is it a parameter in mediaportal.xml?

    Hi there and welcome :)

    Various options to install TVServer and client, but easiest should be to do a reinstall all from the deploytool.

    There is some neat documentation with screen shots on this in the manual. Make sure you select an option that will install and configure everything for TVServer.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for your help

    I had to uninstall mediaportal, tvserver AND _SQLSERVER_ (strange, removing the database was not enough)

    than it worked again after reinstall
