    If you have found a review of MediaPortal, done by an internet magazine, or reputable website, then please let us know.

    We are looking for full reviews, not just the 'blurbs' that download sites copy from our website.

    Just post the link in this thread.

    Re: MediaPortal in the Press

    Many thanks Joostzilla, I like to add very brief quotes (one liners if possible) but as those articles are in Dutch I am lost! Can you just give me the best line from each?

    That goes for anyone posting a review in a language other than English. We are very happy to post them even without the quote, but would love to quote from them, if you can provide us with a good one.

    Thanks

    Re: MediaPortal in the Press

    Thanks Ray, but that ComputerActive link is not to a review just to a downloads page that only quotes the software publishers description. MP is listed on hundreds of Download sites. But for PR, we just want actual reviews for now.

    One day someone can create a bot for us that finds all the downloads of MP and gives us a statistic of the total number of downloads worldwide! Anyone that bored? ;)

    Re: MediaPortal in the Press

    Thanks markcar_2000 but again not a press review done by an internet magazine, just a downloads page with a few user comments. Those are useful for quotes :) but we only wish to list full reviews done by a reviewer.

    Re: MediaPortal in the Press

    Regarding the Dutch articles linked earlier...

    1. MediaPortal 1.0 - Computer!Totaal

    Reckon this is the best quote: "MediaPortal is software die in veel opzichten lijkt op Windows Media Center, met als verschil dat u meer mogelijkheden hebt en minder restricties." -> MediaPortal is software which seems a lot like Windows Media Centre, with the difference being that you have more functionality and less restrictions.

    2. Mediaportal Review - Personal Computer Magazine TestCenter

    Had trouble finding a good quote in this one... It's pretty factual. They list a couple of plus points at the end which might be helpful: "+ digitale en analoge tv kijken, + ook radiostreams " -> Watch Digital and Analog TV, and Radio Streams.

    HTH.
