    Re: MediaPortal in the Press

    Hello friends,

    here you can find a comparison table between the characteristics of all Open Source media centers posted by Telematics Freedom Foundation . It is not a review but it shows that MP is loaded with features compared to other MCs. It referrs to MP RC3 but I'm not sure if it is the 2010 version, or the 2009. Most probably it is the latter.

    Media Center Comparison Table: Created By Telematics Freedom Foundation

    The above study is also mentioned in this quick description of all open source MCs

    http://www.masternewmedia.org/media-centers-alternative-open-source-cross-platform-solutions-/

    In terms of actual reviews/comparisons I found this one comparing MP to MCE ("Mediaportal V Media Center? Which to choose?")

    http://thedigitallifestyle.com/cs/T...diaportal-v-media-center-which-to-choose.aspx

    A lot of good words for MP but the conclusion is in favour of MC... I guess that if the same review was done on today's very stable version of MP the outcome would be different. No?

    More MP reviews with a lot of good comments, but of a 2007 version, can be found here:

    http://www.softpedia.com/reviews/windows/MediaPortal-Review-46365.shtml , here:

    http://techosaurus.blogspot.com/2007/03/mediaportal-review.html

    A quick review from 2008 says that MP is an amazing program with no disadvantages:

    http://mediaportal.software.informer.com/1.0/

    This specific review has a link to some of the awards won until that time by MP:

    http://mediaportal.software.informer.com/awards/

    More recent review from 2010 ending "The effort is well worth it as you get a powerful media center with many features for free!":

    I hope this helps a bit,
    thx,
    Chris

    Re: MediaPortal in the Press

    Many thanks Chris for all that work and a great list. We did have some of those older ones, and I had seen the Telematics Floss Media Center Comparison Chart but never added it. It is the only detailed comparison in existence afaik and was done in 2008 so kind of out of date already. So although not a review, I did add it to our Press Reviews page as it is quite unique. Did not have the HTPC Blog review which was quite nice and had missed the software informer review in 2008. Thanks again.

    These reviews also help us create a list of reviewers to add to our press contacts list to send press releases to in future. So keep up the good work everyone!

    Just a reminder - download sites don't usually provide a proper review, so are not much use. And if the review is not in English, please provide a quote in English I can use on our website. Thanks.

    yakusha - the first review is pretty old, but that second Turkish review (MediaPortal | Aç?k Kaynak TV • Aç?k Kaynak Ar?iviniz) looks good. Unfortunately Google translate gave me gibberish (maybe it is not in Turkish?). Can you provide a English quote? Then I can add it to our Reviews Page.

    Re: MediaPortal in the Press

    Tweakers.net published a review of Mediaportal (in Dutch) : Drie gratis mediacenter-apps getest | Inleiding | Electronics | Tweakers.net

    Quote from conclusion (translated to English): Mediaportal is the right choice for people who want to use digital television. The software maybe somewhat complex for beginners, but the large choice of settings and modular design makes the software flexible and versatile.

  • 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.
