How can I configure the Default TV channel using Media Portal 1.3 beta?
When switching on Media Portal I'd like to see the first TV channel I've configured in the "TV-Server configuration" tool.

thanks,
thomas d.

    When entering the TV screen

    • Auto turn TV on when entering My TV - Default: off
    Turn on this option to have TV automatically start when you enter the TV section in MediaPortal.
    • Directly show fullscreen TV - Default: off
    Turn on this option to automatically switch to full screen mode when TV is turned on.

    I think this is not what Thomas is asking for.. He want to set a default channel that is always tuned when he starts live television..

    As far as I know this is not possible, but it would be a usefull feature.. You can do a feature request Thomas! :)

    I'm not 100% sure if when first opening mediaportal (fresh start) the above starts with first channel or most recent channel.

    Is there a way to set which channel tv starts up on, it usually starts on digital channel 1 and I have to change it ti av6 for my sky reception. Sometimes it will start on av1 which I then have to change to av6. Would be great if it would start on sky.

    You need to use "TV Server Config". On the "TV Channels" panel, you will find that there are two entries for "Quest" -- the old one and the new one. Simply delete the old one. When this happens in the future, you can select a channel and click the "Preview" button on the panel. If the channel is working, a small preview screen appears...

    Did you see this thread ? The poster in that thread could not get MP's Schedules Direct plugin to work. I tried it on my test system (I don't have a Schedules Direct account), but I could not get it to work either. @framug mentioned that the plugins run no more than once per day, so that may have been my problem. However... I...
