First of all, thank you for your great job with Mediaportal. I think it´s the best software to put on a HTPC. Well, now here I go:

I have some issues with mediaportal configured with kmplayer as external player. If I play a video with kmplayer in windows (with mediaportal closed) everything is fine, sound, video and fullscreen mode. But if I play a .mkv with mediaportal and it opens kmplayer, it says that someone else is using overlay mixer and I have to select another video renderer. Then, it doesn´t matter which one I choose, the video doesn´t play colours well, or if it does, when I select fullscreen mode, the video doesn´t change its size. As I say, it´s a random error (I am sure it´s a problem with my mediaportal config, but after try everything I can imagine I have no solution), so, anyone can help?

Thank you one more time.

Ok, believe it or not, the problem appears when I download the movies info to MediaPortal database :mad: I´ll search from here now... :sorry:
