    Hehe I'm also testing everything on my standard PC and only when it works I'll do it on my production system using VNC :)
    It's a much better behaviour even though it's also not griefless (by the way one of the best Grip Inc. songs ever :p ) :)

    I once gave up on TV on MP (analogue via STB is a PITA)..... didn't take long time until TV-feature was missed. ("Do I really need all these remotes!?" "Where are the movies?","YOU put on some music!").


    My answer would be:
    "Not much after I stopped fixing things that worked"

    My wife gets annoyed with me when I tell her that she is not providing enough detail with her bug reports and I can't fix anything when the description is only "I tried to switch it on and it didn't work, why can't we just have a normal TV like a normal family" (I am not sure what a "normal family" is, but they must be odd if they aren't using MP!)

    I won a blueray player last year which had quite a lot of media functions. I told her I could get rid of MP and just use the blueray player with the TV tuner (don't worry, I was just calling her bluff), and when I explained all the things she wouldn't be able to do, she said "but why would you want to use something that can't do everything MediaPortal-thingy can do?"

    Little does she know that she will soon be an MP1.3.0 Alpha tester :)
