Good find samo.
I just wish you had found that a day earlier as that would have freed my evening last night (I switched from MSSQL to MySQL and ended up solving another bunch of problems). :D

If I ever switched back to MSSQL, I'll keep your find in mind.

Hi, (I've seen this post too late...)

The samo_yea's solution is ok. But it's better also to blank the "Dynamic port" field.

It's the standard behaviour of SQL Server. port 1433 is dedicated to "default instance", but SQLExpress installs a "Named Instance" ($SQLEXPRESS), which by default (and best practice) *doesn't* listen on 1433.

just want to confirm, this works for me with sqlexpress. MP tv client went from connect/connect/fail/connect (fail being tcp 1433) to connecting on all 4

    I tried all your solutions - the test of the tcp port still fails. But after confirming the warning message, the client runs perfectly. strange.

    I also fail the 3rd tcp/ip in the connection test and have blanked out and turned on all protocols

    this is what I see in about 1/2 way down the file. I will edit out my PW

    Just would like some direction here if possible.

    Ive changed

    -->
    <DefaultProvider name="SQLServer" connectionString="Password=****;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=TvLibrary;Data Source=server2\SQLEXPRESS;Connection Timeout=300;" />
    <!--

    to

    -->
    <DefaultProvider name="SQLServer" connectionString="Password=****;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=TvLibrary;Data Source=192.168.1.*;Connection Timeout=300;" />
    <!--

    But it wouldnt even get passed the connection tests.

    I had to add /sqlexpress after my ipaddress to pass the 3 of 4 tests but I keep getting the big lists of errors after what seems like 2-3 mins(timeout).

    I now also have problems connecting to via media portal regular client, where b4 i was getting a stream/timeshift error now i get cannot find server/database

    help pls :confused:

    It's possible to use MPTV Client with Windows MCE ? I am asking because i've searched all the forums and just find a reference of MCETVCLIENT but the link is broken, so, i mean that maybe existe another way to do this.

    Thank's Guys... You're awesome!

    Hi. You need to make sure that only one TV server is running at a time, MP1 TV server or MP2 server. They both want to access the tuner cards exclusively so there is a conflict if both are running. During installation the server part (of MP1 and MP2) will be started automatically. If the server didn't start the installation fails...
