    I hope you can help me. I would like to have a look at Media Portal and see if I would like to change over from Kodi. The question is simple can I have both applications on my Windows 10 PC at the same time. Thank you Ruth

    Dont See any reason why not. I have had both on the same PC before. I just run whichever one I fancy using. though TBH, I always found MP1 more comfortable to navigate and import media with over Kodi/XBMC. (using the moving pictures & MP-TvSeries plugins.)

    Yes they can. I have MP and Kodi running on the same machine. MP I still use most, but my kids are swinging to Kodi, so I cater for both.
    Kodi and MP can run at the same time. Pressing the green button on the MCE style remote will always start MP or bring MP to the front.
