As topic name says... I followed the guide when i installed MediaPortal, but i recieve 2 errors on startup, something with a renderer, and then it hangs at "Starting plugins..."
I have tagged along my error file.

How come? :( I love MediaPortal :(:(

Before i switched to Vista i had it working perfectly on XP.

    MediaPortal fails to create DirectX9Ex device (that is used under Vista). Most likely the GPU you are using is not a 100% compatible with DirectX9. Sorry, nothing we can do.

    Ok i see. I just upgraded it to a 128 mb graphics card that supports DirectX9.
    I will respond tomorrow if that has fixed the problem :) Have a nice evening.

    Hi @azzuro, I don’t know what was wrong with loading onto my new HTPC. After many days of trying to get MePo to work, I’m afraid I gave up and jumped ship to Kodi - which worked first time without problems. After 10 years with Mediaportal, it was a huge shame to leave but I couldn’t get it to work at all with my new PC with integrated...

    (this is a crosspost from the madVR thread, as the same issue is discussed there) It seems like the problem is specific to NVIDIA and has two causes: 1.

    Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

    So maybe I've just overseen the bug in Jira. But the bug isn't a big problem as it only happens very seldom and you can still use MediaPortal, so I think i can live with it ;)
