media portal bootup screen & shell switch (1 Viewer)

this probably doesnt belong here, but it would be great to have a mediaportal bootup screen instead of the windows one.

also is there any way to adjust the shell to media portal instead of

explorer.exe ?

    i'm no good at visual things, i put this out there perhaps to spark someone's intrest enough for them to make it, i'm personally horrible at these types of things.

    I might do it if I get time. Does anyone have a copy of the MP logo at a decent res. (Samsonite ?)
    Also, you won't really be able to set MP as your shell, it's just not designed to be one. Why not just add it to your startup folder and default it to fullscreen?

    ShiftClick's logo can be downloaded from here:

    Looking forward to see the results :)

    I made a screenshot of MP and set it as the desktop wallpaper. If there wasn´t the splash screen, you wouldn´t realize the start of MP. The taskbar is moved out of the desktop. The only thing you could see it is the date and time. But you won´t really see it. ;)

    If there´s a boot screen, please post it, I really want to delete this myHTPC screen, since this ugly piece of alpha software was released here in germany for 50,-€... :evil:

    And regarding your question about the shell replacement:


    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    "Shell"="C:\Program Files\Team Mediaportal\Mediaportal.exe"

    I guess from this, that the mapping steps basically work. Please try to map some of the keys you mention to be not working and upload the log files afterwards. Maybe @Brownard can see something and a solution can be found. Please open a thread in the OnlineVideo section for this, we should not mix 2 topics in one thread.

    Hi, That is unfortunately not possible. I fear you have to mark them as watched manually. Maybe there is also a change with an data base editor (SQLite Editor), but it will be not easy and I can’t provide a manual, because I didn’t try yet.

    Good you solved it. It’s indeed really strange as xaml always uses „.“ as decimal separator. There are also several other code lines in same file and other files, where the dot seems to make no trouble. It’s unclear why only this line causes issues. I tried again as in your video and no issue here :confused:

    that is absolutely not my impression, I think I reboot my htpc max a couple of times a year, usually (wild guess) when directx derails (symptoms are: frozen image, or sound only at video playback) Mind you, it's MP client only, no tvservice, and mp shutdown before sleep (and ofcourse start again at wake) Edit: leaving MP running...
