I reformated my computer to do a fresh install. when i run the install tool when it gets to MS SQL Express it starts to install the blue screen of death flashes for a fraction of a second then it restarts. then ever time i turn on the pc as windows loads it restarts unless i go in in safe mode and delete the MS Sql files. i've tried installing SQl maually which works fine but media portal still says it is not installed when i run the install tool. Please help.
Thanks

Not that it's comforting, but I had the exact same problem installing MP this week. In the end I tried MySQL and that worked fine.

To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...

MP1 MP2 Migrating from WMC DE
Hi. Network tuners can be shared even on the same PC (done it often while testing different software, I'm using SAT>IP tuner that are similar to hdhomerun tuner but for European DVB). But you can not use them on both systems at the same time ofc.. Means if WMC is using a tuner (e,g, for a scheduled recording) MP can't use the same...
