Hi all,
I want to install MediaPortal with TV-Server in my desktop computer, as it has the tv-card. In the same LAN, there is a dedicated server, with HTTP and MySQL server, but no tv-card...
So what I'd like to do is install MediaPortal with TV-Server but no MySQL and then connect it with the dedicated MySQL server...
Is there any how-to to do that?

    Hi.
    Install MP in advanced Mode (not One Klick!). Then choose "Yes, I want to watch TV, choose "SingleSeat" and choose "use an existing Database". At first start of TV server config you are prompted to add your database connection details. Here you can add your Server, User and Password...

    OK.
    my home language is spanish-spain (normally es-es)
    the sentence is "SQL Server ya está instalado y será usado por el servidor TV-Server.". Literally, SQL Server is already installed and will be used by TV-Server.
    What I understood: **Microsoft SQL Server is already installed and will be used by Tv-Server"
    What I would say: "Ya existe un Servidor de Bases de Datos para el Servidor de TV" . Literally, There already is a Database Server to be used by TV-Server.

    The thing that mislead me was the use of "SQL Server", which is the name of Microsoft Database Server... maybe it's just that I'm too choosy...

    Hi.
    Thanks, I Understand. Normally the MS SQL Server would be called "MSSQL"... I'll see what we can do about this...
