    Have just installed 1.1.0 alpha and whenever I go to play music for the first time since the machine has booted there is a considerable delay and the machine appears to freeze. The delay is about 45 seconds after selecting an MP3. This only occurs when the PC has first booted. I do not launch mediaportal automatically when windows launches, so I am sure that everything has loaded before mediaportal starts

    For me to reproduce, the steps are:

    1. Restart media PC
    2. When back up, start mediaportal
    3. Select music
    4. Click any song... will have to wait 40-45 seconds before it begins to play.

    Could be doing a lookup on the song or something? But surely that would be in a different thread ya not blocking the current process.

    After any song has played, it acts normally as it did before.

    Wiered :confused:

    Go to MP Configuration, Music, Music Database, and then update your database.
    Doing that once off should solve the problem.
