    I know these kind of problems.
    On the one hand my girl friend loves all the possibilities on the other she often is to afraid to use the system because I've changed to much again :p

    I have learnt.....
    I used to get so much grief but I then just bought a second machine and tested on that first :D

    Still get far too much grief though :rolleyes:

    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 :)
