    You can review the complete change log for this Pre Release by using the link below:
    Changelog: MediaPortal 1.27 Pre Release

    Documentation of new features will be added to: Wiki - What's New1.18.x

    Installation, Upgrade, Download and Feedback
    Installation
    microsoft net framework 4 e711e
    Since we switched to .NET4 you need to make sure you have.NET4 installed on your computer (not needed if you are on Windows 8 because it comes with .NET4, but you NEED the .NET 3.5 features enabled!). Otherwise you are not able to install MediaPortal and the installer just quits.

    Download-Link: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer)

    Aside from that when doing a clean installation of the this Pre Release there is nothing else to worry about.

    Microsoft SQL Server
    MS SQL
    If you plan to use MSSQL server for TV it is necessary to install it yourself before installing Mediaportal with TV Server. Instructions for previous versions are on the wiki, note that new versions were not checked for 100% compatibility.

    For Windows XP, Vista - MSSQL 2005 - SQL Server 2005


    For Windows 7 or later - MSSQL 2008 - SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2008 R2 Express


    For Windows 7 or later - MSSQL versions above 2008, there's no official documentation from Mediaportal but you can install and configure it based on the articles above, google or documentation from Microsoft. Compatibility has not been tested.

    Upgrade
    update-icon
    Upgrading from MP 1.2.0 Beta or later to 1.27 Pre Release

    All MediaPortal 1.2.0 Beta installations can be upgraded to this Pre Release without losing your settings.

    Plugins:
    If you are running MediaPortal 1.6.0 or earlier, then it is possible that some of your previously installed plugins will be shown as incompatible after the upgrade to this Pre Release! Whether or not a plugin is incompatible depends on the MediaPortal subsystems the plugin uses.
    All plugins that work for the 1.7.1 HotFix release, should also work with the this Pre Release.

    Upgrading Extensions:
    The easiest way to upgrade your extensions is by launching the MediaPortal Extension Installer, and let it check for updated versions. However this only works for extensions that use our MPEI system. If the author of the extension releases it as a stand alone installer, you must contact them for an updated version.

    General note about Upgrades
    Manually stop TV-Service!

    television-icon
    On some systems our installer is not able to update the TV-Server installation because its files are locked or the service can not be stopped.
    For upgrades to this Pre Release we recommend that you manually stop the TV-Service and make sure, via Windows Task Manager (enable the "all users" option), that the TvService.exe process is really gone before starting to upgrade.

    Custom TV-Service properties

    If you manually changed the properties of the TV-Service (like restart on error options), then you must redo these changes after the upgrade. The installer is not able to save and restore your custom service properties when it installs the new version of the TV-Service.

    Feedback
    Bugs
    If you think you found a bug then please post a detailed report in our Bug Reports Forum.

    Finally - the download. We hope that you took the time to read this release news entirely because it includes vital information about the major changes.

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