I've downloaded mpextended-service 0.6.0.4-emby-zip. Extracted it to find MPExtended-installer.Services.msi

When I run the .msi file i can install it okay, and access the configuration page, but when i rightclick on the icon in the tray (to start the TV Server) I get this error

"Windows cannot find C:\program files (x86)\Teammediaportal\mediaportal\mediaportal.exe"

Media Portal v1.27.000.0 is installed though!

The problem is, it (MediaPortal) is actually installed at C:\Program files (x86) Teammediaportal\Teammediaportal TV Server

I'm hoping to use MediaPortal as my tuner manager for emby.

What is the correct order to do things Please?

I haven't been able to find a step by step guide for newbies like me

    Thank you ajs.

    I can't even get MPExtended to fire up or start on my PC. I have downloaded unzipped & installed MPExtended WebMediaPortal IIS Edition 0.5.4. It installs to Program files (x86) MPExtended folder. I don't know if that's the right place to install it, or if it needs to be somewhere in the Team MediaPortal folder. I strongly suspect that I simply do not understand it at all.

    I will just keep ooming & eerring

    Folder does not matter, here on the forum somewhere was an example of how to install the MPE, I put that guide, and it worked.

    The good news is I now have MPExtended version 6 is working on my PC. I think I have configured the username & password & they are validated after pushing the test button.

    From my galaxy A12 running MPTvSchedular, I have input my username & password from MPExtended on my PC.

    I get the message "Unable to connect to TV server"

    But progress anyway ... hey ho,

    Thanks for your kind help earlier

    Hello Any super dooper MPExtended chap or chapess out there,

    I am still getting this error message

    "Unable to connect to TV server"

    As far as I can tell I have installed Extender Service & WebMediaPortal. In configuration there is a WebMediaPortal tab at the bottom on the left of MPExtended configurator. BUT when I tap on it the configurator closes down. Am I using the right ports please?

    On both my Galaxy A12 phone & my Galaxy Tab A I get the above message, unable to connect etc ....

    The default port on my Windows 10 PC for mediaportal 1.27 is 554. The port for MPExtended is 4332

    Should all the ports be the same on all devices Please?

    thanks, in hope & despair
