@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.
