    @mm1352000
    Thanks. The c:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\MediaPortal.xml file is actually empty? Could this back up yours and @JimCatMP 's suspicions? Is there anywhere I can get a clean version of the file without re-installing, or is it specific to every installation? There is a MediaPortal.xml.bak file, but it is also empty.

    @JimCatMP
    Sorry to hear your power supply is so bad. Power problems are rare here. Having said that, we did, coincidently have an outage last Saturday morning, but MP was working fine for me after that (It was still 1.15.0 then).

    @Stéphane Lenclud
    Thanks for tuning in and thanks to all for the assistance. Hope I don't have to install from scratch :-(



    Cheers,
    Steve.

    Look for _BACKUP folders in C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal.

    Eureka!!!!

    Many, many thanks @Stéphane Lenclud - I copied a MediaPortal.xml from an early _BACKUP folder and it worked.

    You are a champion :)

    Cheers,
    Steve.

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • 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.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
