    Hi everybody,

    after 15+ years of using MediaPortal, I gave Kodi with an VDR backend a try as I wanted to switch from Windows backend to Linux. I have humbly returned to MediaPortal. I got VDR working alright after some fiddling, but my wife was very unhappy with Kodi as a frontend, and I have to admit that I too think that MediaPortal is easier to use as a frontend. Setup also works out of the box, especially timeshift.

    I find it unfair that media coverage on Kodi seems to be so much more prominent lately. I hope that MediaPortal gets the attention it deserves. A big thank you to all contributors, and keep up the good work!

    Best regards,

    Astronaut

    I find the interface and operation of Media Portal especially 1 worlds better than Kodi.
    It's much easier to set up everything.

    Interestingly, a buddy and I once installed 2 PCs and connected them to 2 TVs and showed them to several buddies who didn't know either.
    They knew Kodi from the media. But they all voted unanimously for MediaPortal 1.

    -----------

    Ich finde die Oberfläche und Bedienung bei Media Portal speziell 1 um Welten besser statt wie bei Kodi.
    Alleine um alles einzurichten ist das viel übersichtlicher.

    Interesant ist, ein Kumpel und ich haben mal 2 PC installiert und mit 2 Fernsehern angeschlossen und gleichzeit mehreren Kumpels gezeigt die beides nicht kannten.
    Kodi kannten sie aus den Medien. Aber sie haben alle Einstimmig für MediaPortal 1 gestimmt.
