    If you open MediaPortal configuration and in the TV settings enter an incorrect host name/address for the TV server the configuration window will either crash or pause for long periods of time in the plugins section.

    To reproduce:

    Start Configuration
    Enter an Incorrect Host name
    Save configuration settings and exit.

    Open Configuration Again
    Click on plugins section.

    The configuration window will then stop responding (usually starts working after a minute or two, then if you click another item/plugin it stops responding again).

    Logs attached.:D

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.


  • Support MediaPortal!

    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.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
