    I was sooooo glad to get rif of that stupid green blob......

    anyway, can't you just install mplayer and make a batch file that starts the movie and after this launch Mediaportal?

    Yes, works rather well too. However, it does slow down the starting of the program quite considerably. Not sure with MediaPortal, but using ShowShifter, if you try to launch SS when something else is using the overlay, it don't like it much. So you end up running the intro, shutting down mplayer, then launching the HTPC app.

    Something tells me MediaPortal would be the same way. So what you end up with is a 5 second intro, it closes down, then MediaPortal runs, takes it's time to launch, and now you are in.

    Begs the question, is it really worth waiting an extra 5- 8 seconds just to see the same animation screen everytime you launch the program?

    Anyway, I was thinking an intro that runs for 12-15 minutes that you can't exit....

    LOL, I bet you were the kind of guy to send a 10meg email to a friend on a dial-up connection just knowing he would be lambasting you as he waits 4 hours for the email to download....

    His email would be jammed up until he downloaded the entire thing, and that was the day before web based email so he had no choice but to wait and download it.....

    In that case make it REALLY annoying by adding a 12-15minute trailer when you DO exit MP telling you how wonderful it is, what a shame it is to exit the program, a list of the programmers and a list of the upcoming features :lol:

    It’s technically not possible to combine the library and folder view. This is also the case for other HTPC softwares I fear. The media can quickly organized by filters, sorting etc., it’s not about fanart. The folder view is meant just as a basic navigation feature.

    Of course this would be the best option, but I guess it’s not that easy to integrate external players into MP2. It was somewhere discussed, but I could not find the related thread.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to do this remote control once the...

    Ok, have a good vacation in Egypt :) Me might have to tell @high to turn off the automated flag for privacy reasons. Also everybody could see I was in netherlands. I think the flag should be related to the country entered and shown ;)
