    Just a question about MP 1.0 RC 1 installation.

    The main post says to uninstall the old version of MP and TV Server. Do you need to uninstall the SQL components too?

    My old install had MySQL which I left, when I ran through the RC1 install there was an option to not install a database engine and to use an existing one. After install I ran the setup for TVserver and the window came up asking which engine I use. I selected MySql and it worked fine.

    same here for MS SQL. Note that the existing TVLibrary database is deleted and recreated, which means that any extra user names you have associated with it (eg. for Big_Kevs Web based epg manager), then they will have to be re-associated with it. Also any TV recordings will have to be reimported, but there is a feature inbuilt in the TV Server for this now.
