    The MP2 team is proud to present the release of MediaPortal 2.1.2
    MediaPortal 2.1.2 is a full-blown media center software that addresses the most common user requirements out of the box. Besides its TV and Radio services it is also offering a complete media management for movies, series and music, including posters, album and fan art as well as additional metadata (e.g. actor, director and much more) that are automatically downloaded from the internet. MediaPortal 2.1 also provides access to online video sources such as Amazon Prime. Integrated news, weather information and management for your digital images complete this software package.

    The modern client/server architecture in combination with the central database greatly simplifies the use and management of the system. New clients can easily be added to the environment and connected to the MediaPortal 2 Server for immediate use.

    This service upgrade fixes several bugs and introduces some new features:

    WakeOnLan

    • We added a WOL-manager to allow the automatic wake-up of the server PC when a client is switched on.
    TV
    • We added automatic logo management: channel logos are now automatically refreshed every other week so that changes in the logo repository will be automatically available on your system.
    • We also fixed a bug that caused radio logos to not be downloaded.
    • A configurable pop-up window now signals that a scheduled recording is starting or has ended.
    Player-OSD and Player configuration display
    • We added a setting option to allow the optional display of the player configuration dialog.
    • We changed the way the OSD is displayed. The first press of 'Info' will invoke the OSD, a second will either switch it off or display the player configuration, which will then close again when pressing 'Info' one more time.
    Removable media
    • We greatly increased the speed when browsing files on removable media (e.g. pictures on a SD card).
    Weather
    • We fixed a bug that caused temperatures to always be displayed in °C,
    Skin
    • We added a new WMC theme 'Turquoise"
    • The WMC Home menu has been overworked for a better user experience
    • DiscArt was added to the Audio player.

    Attention WMC skin users: a very minor optical bug got introduced that leads to some navigation buttons being permanently visible when playing TV. We will exchange the download version on SourceForge as soon as possible.

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.
