hi all

just switched to MP for W7MC, and i think i "loveit"
just a few questions if I may, maybe someone can point me to the right URL to documentation or a quick answer

  1. Can I edit the home screen ? ... i'd like to move "moving pictures" (this is the best right?) to the front page and not have it burred under plug-ins, how is this done ?
  2. How do I remove ads?
  3. Can i move online Video's to the front page ? how ?
  4. Is there any way to increase the number of rows in the EPG ? (not really interested in the top panel with the description)
  5. When i'm watching TV and I press the "stop" button on my MCE remote, i don't want to be asked if I'm sure i want to exit TV, i just want it to stop/exit TV.
  6. Will MP freeze if you add to may albums under music ? mine is freezing with 175 albums.
  7. Is anyone is AU watching Netflix and Hulu ? (is there a howto ? I suspect we need to use something like unblockus? what are others doing ?)
  8. What other MUST HAVE plugins is everyone using ?

Hi ipguy,

-1 you can do that in mediaportal configuration under plugins-->choose moving pictures-->click "in home"
-2 what do you mean whit ads?
-3 the same way as point 1
-4 i'm not sure look it up for you
-5 simply go to music or whatever
-6 that should not cause problems,please post your logs
-7 sorry,i do not use it
-8 if you record many tv series the tvseries plugin is a good plugin

    Hi ipguy,

    Welcome (back) !

    About your questions.

    1. You can't (yet) with the default skins of Mediaportal. The team is very busy to create a kind of "skin editor" to make this possible for Titan, but for now you can't. Only option is to switch to another (non-default) skin that provide this kind of options allready like StreamedMP or Avalon. I don't know exactly when the skin editor for Titan is ready, but I think it will be availible in one of the next upcoming months..
    2. What do you mean with "ads"?
    3. See answer 1.
    4. Yes you can. Go to settings (inside MP) -> GUI -> Skin -> EPG rows (or something like that) If that's not enough you can use this mod: (for Titan) https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/titan-extended.114551/page-15 (post #144
    5. Not possible yet I'm affraid. But this question has been asked a lot of times before, so let's hope the team will add this option soon..
    6. That seems to be a bug than.. Do you have stored your music to a network drive? Please add logs to find out what the problem is..
    7. Read here about a netflix plugin: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/new-netflix-plugin.112963/page-12
    8. Please find out yourself.. Every users has his own needs.. But a couple of suggestions: MovingPictures, TVSeries, OnlineVideos, Subcentral, Infoservice, Trakt, Radiotime, Rockstar.. You can find them in owr "populair pluginj section:

    For more answers, please use the search option of our site first! But if you can't find the right answer(s) by yourself, you may ask us as many times as you want.. ;)

    Good Luck!
