    When I startup MePo 1.3.0b it searches for the tvserver (which is installed but disabled). So in 1.3.0a it emptied the tv client hostname. But now it doesn't

    Even if i remove it manually and startup mediaportal, go to a tv channel it says it can't connect to the tv service, and when i go back to the settings screen the hostname is filled again.

    So when i deinstalled the tvserver/tvclient from the system it works again. Hummm.. not so sure it's a bug or just a different approach.

    If the tvplugin is enabled, then it will fill in hostname.

    Especially if you have not re-installed ARGUS TV to overwrite MP's own tvplugin which is mandotory for connection.

    See picture version ID's match, even if the copyright still says 4TR, another thing Dot.i must have missed ;)

    I am about to close this because we do not give support for ArgusTV. It is a very ugly hack by them to replace MP-Binaries, instead of coding a decent solution, which means their own MP-Plugin.

    And of course infinite.loop is right, this is not a bug report, as it involves ARGUS, my mistake, tired should have spotted which forum it was in.

    Anyway answer still stands, just no reason to delete post any more.

    So after a long search and a lot of experiments I did find out the culprit: I did disable events of the Common Information Model Object Manager. As soon as they are disabled TV server will always show "port 554 is already bound". Enabling/disabling events is done by this reg key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM]...

    It's very strange, but you can see that it happens. The logic of NSIS is a complete mystery. :)

    What exactly does setting the IP address to a blank in the Server table do? Is the IP address no longer stored in the Server table so it accommodates IP address changes? The reason I am asking is that I have two subnets here. The subnet1 network is where this box will normally reside and the other, subnet2 network is where the other...

    I am still on 1.22 but I had a thought that MediaPortal did not like starting up without a Audio Device available in Windows, even if you later turn on the TV (HDMI audio device becomes available) and play the TV content. So I plugged a set of headphones into the on-board soundcard and Windows enabled the soundcard, I launched MP...

    Hi CyberSimian, I have concluded the same thing. Disabled "Show last active module when resuming" and go to TV after starting up in the Home screen. Would be nice if it could start on TV (if that's where MP was when put to sleep), just like my older Panasonic PVR. But this workaround is reasonable. I will add that sometimes, even...
