    I just tested the installer on a clean VM, and that needs the .NET 3.5 features enabled, or else it won't install. So the requirements are indeed wrong.
    Not sure if (and why) we still need 3.5 though (maybe because of the XP leftovers?).



    ** EDIT **
    Can't find the proper page to adjust the requirements, it seems redirected.

    That's a little confusing.... The announcement page has
    With MediaPortal 1.6.0 we switched to .NET4 so 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). Otherwise you are not able to install MediaPortal and the installer just quits.

    Wow, you guys ... talk about fast release cycle :)

    Are you talking about this issue here?

    It is fixed in the next release. Looking at that release news I guess I will push that version out as soon as possible and postpone the other fixes on my list until the next WifiRemote version ;)

    • The release notes says this:
      Last.FM reworkBecause Last.FM changed their API, the Last.fm Radio & scrobbling functions (Last.fm account needed for both!) are rewritten. As a bonus an awesome new AutoDJ function is added, which will attempt to play music forever, and you don't even need a Last.fm account for it!
    I can see it in the menu - and have turned it on, but it does not play music when my "playlist" ends ...

    How does the AutoDJ-function work?

    Can I read about it anywhere?

    If your music collection has proper tags for:
    Artist
    Song
    Album
    Genre
    Year
    Album Artist
    Etc

    then AutoDJ will use these tags to match the genre, song etc to other songs with similar qualities in your collection. But not only do you need to have the music tagged properly, you'll need to use database view of the music rather than just shares view.

    In MediaPortal, go to:
    Settings->Music->Database and select your folders with music, then hit Scan Selected Folders

    Or, open Configuration and in the Music Section, you can scan your folders there.

    Clearly the documentation for this feature didn't get done. Can anyone help? It really should be here:
