I've just installed Media Portal and need to configure the server but I cannot get to the Configuration GUI.
I got there once during first setup, but something got wrong and my system hung. I have tried uninstall/reinstall but I can't get to the GUI any more. Please help. :D

Thats exactly what I'm doing but it don't work. I only get a message that server isn't started and ask if I want to start. There is no difference whether I click "yes" or "no".

    Check in task manager that you have sqlbrowser running, it should be started automatically with windows.

    If it is, you need to delete the sql database for mediaportal and start again.

    You'll need TV-Server/install-SQL-Management-Studio - MediaPortal Manual Documentation open the database (password MediaPortal) select the MPTVbdRC2 db, right click and select delete.

    Now TVServer config should open.
