    The MP2 team is proud to present the release of MediaPortal 2.1.3
    MediaPortal 2.1.3 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:

    • It is now possible to delete active recordings. A security dialogue will prompt for confirmation that you really want to terminate the active recording and delete the file.
    • New TsReader and CloseCaption parser versions increase the stability of TV playback.
    • TV FullGuide display can be switched to a single channel view by selecting the channel name. This is useful if for example you would like to record a particular show on this channel.

    Full list of changes

    Installation, Upgrade, Download and Feedback
    • MediaPortal 2.1 introduced a new media database structure that is not compatible with versions prior to MediaPortal 2.1 Pre Release. The installer will recognize an existing incompatible database and rename it before upgrading the system to the new version.
    • If you are upgrading from an earlier version than MediaPortal 2.1 you will need to redo your server settings including the setup of media sources. MediaPortal 2.1.3 will automatically scan each path and import online information as per your settings to allow using all the new features.
    • Weather: If you are upgrading from an already installed MediaPortal 2 version prior to MP 2.1.1, all previously defined locations are incompatible with the new Weather provider of MediaPortal 2 and need to be deleted. To do so start the client application and immediately navigate to the respective setting entry at Settings | Plugins | Weather | Locations and delete all displayed locations.
    Appearance and functionality
    • We invite you to make suggestions for improvement with special focus on menu layout, menu content explanatory texts and translations. Please post your comments in a new thread in the General section.
    • Requests for missing/new features should be made in the Feature Request Forum. As for bugs we would appreciate if you first verified that your request has not already been raised before. Also if possible please make only one request per thread.

    We hope that you took the time to read this release news as it includes vital information about the major changes. Get your own copy of the new MediaPortal 2.1.3 by selecting the download link.
