    Hey all I have had a couple of goes at installing MP2 and yes it worked ok,
    but I was not convinced at that stage.
    I am now trying again to see what its like.
    I have had MP1 for years and have been happy with it and still am.
    So here is my point for this post.
    I have just installed MP2 on the same PC that I have MP1 on and can't get the
    MP2 TVserver to scan my Dvbt card that is working fine in MP1.
    Without uninstalling MP1 what do I need to do to give MP2 a go and check it out?
    Can I do this or not?
    Cheers Mark

    Hi,

    the MP2 TV Server is based on the MP1 TV Server but runs as a plugin in the MP2 server service. Both can not run on the same time. Please disable MP1 TV Server and then restart MP2 Server Service (which will then start the TV Server as a plugin).

    Cheers

    Thank you BlueMax,
    So you are saying stop the TvService.exe service and yes I have done that before and still got no where
    So then I did what you said to, stop MP2 server but how do i start it again?
    I tried clicking on MP2-Server.exe but it comes up with a no go.Am i missing something?
    Ok disregard all that lol I went computer managment and restarted the MP2 server from there
    and wow yes it worked and is now scanning Thank you
    So I guess while testing I should disable the MP1 TVservice so it will not start up? Then?

    Cheers Mark

    You can avoid the scan. Simply export your channels while running MP1, then import them into MP2 in the TV COnfiguration.

    So I guess while testing I should disable the MP1 TVservice so it will not start up? Then?
    Yes, or it will run again at the next start of Windows. Don't forget to deacivate the MP2 Service if you want to run MP1 again.
