    If you are running a multiseat environment with several MePo clients (MePo-client itself, MPextended client) you can't suspend the htpc that hosts the tv-server at every time.
    If another client uses the tv-server the powerscheduler prohibits such actions. Thats fine of course.
    But there is no message to the user who is willing to suspend the htpc. This can lead to maloperations if the user is not aware that another user is using the server or that this is a feature and not a bug.

    A message to the user "another client <client name> uses this server, suspend not possible" could solve this problem.

    You're welcome. I'm happy to try to help where I can. :) Let's be really clear. There are channel numbers... and there are channel IDs. These are two different things. mc2xml's channel IDs haven't got a hope of matching up to MediaPortals. mc2xml has IDs that are something like "I20.515292.microsoft.com" (or maybe...
