    Sure it does. The 1.20 version display is the right one. Just use it.

    1) The MP2 can only be run via administer mode (using Windows 10)

    2) There is no background "-" icon

    Although both (Hauppauge) ports scanned and mapped via TV-configurator

    3) The MP2 program displays stations in what appears a random order (best would be LCN or Alphabetical),

    4) but the EPG never updates or can the current broadcast function/display.

    What exactly do you mean by "The MP2"? Neither the client app nor TV Config require admin rights to run.

    There is no background "-" icon
    I don't understand what you mean. What is a background icon?

    The MP2 program displays stations in what appears a random order
    Again, we have a Wiki. MP2 will display channels exactly in the same order as in the respective channel group. You can change the order in the TV Configuration tool as you wish. Alphabetically, manually, whatever you like.

    the EPG never updates or can the current broadcast function/display.
    This is not WMC and EPG needs to be set up first. Did you do that?

    in regard to "The MP2 can only be run via administer mode (using Windows 10)" I am referring to the client
    to run I need to invoke Administrator mode for client to start

    In regard to "EPG needs to be set up first" NO I did not do the impossible - there is no CAM module so there EPG grabber

    The comment "You can change the order in the TV Configuration " has been avoided over the years, yes one can manually order the stations , but there is no EASY way of bulk ordering via Logical Channel Number (used nationally in UK) or alphabetically

    finally "What is a background icon?" -- in most microsoft apps the top right corner has 3 single characters " - square X"
    the X is to eXit
    the square is to toggle size od window ---- not present in Client
    the "-" minus is to allow program to run in the background and allow other apps to be pulled to the foreground

    Foreground in my case was to look at logs !

    The client does generally not need admin privileges, something is wrong with the installlation then.

    Why it’s impossible to look into wiki and configure the EPG first? It has nothing to do with CAM.

    What was avoided over years? I can unfortunately not follow you well. You can select ordering by logical channel number in TV settings with one click. I’m not sure which easier solution you have in mind.

    I implemented this already and it will be available with next release soon.

    Sure there is. Just click on the column header and channels will be ordered by name, by number, by provider, whatever you like.

    In trying to re-install MP2 Client and TV server , I find that I can use "Control Panel" and then "Programs & Features" and then request uninstall.

    The programs are removed, the icons are gone . HOWEVER on reinstalling the package all the previous configuration are still there, so that media souces are difficult to change, tuning information is still present, so that the configuration problems are still there, old audio still there, old images still there so what use is the reinstall
    there should be options to delete database entries, albeit with warnings.

    Normal, as ProgramData-stored information is retained. Delete \ProgramData\TeamMediaPortal and everything is gone.

    Check Jira and you'll see this on the ToDo list
