not sure if this has been requested in the past, so if it was.. ignore ;)
Didn't find anything so far :(

I'd REALLY like a section My Ebooks because i have a lot of them & I'd like to read them through Mediaportal :)
Basically you would just have to find a way to show PDF files, further expansions can be realised afterwards

Also maybe a secion for audio-books ;)

Just my thoughts

    If you are just looking for starting PDF Files, use the my Programes plugin.

    Specify your eBook Folder as the starting point, acroread.exe as executing program and .pdf as the extension and you should be ready to go.

    btw.: I guess you have a nice LCD, since reading on anything else would not be a good solution would it?

    Check "Use shell execution" or something similar, then you do not have to specify the .exe file.
    Click the questionmark right of the foldername and .pdf will pop up automagically in the extensions-list.

    Then you didn’t use Nereus Skin in MP2. tMM does a great job in combination with MP2 it’s the best, if you ask me.

    Hopefully a simple question: I have not watched Free-to-air satellite TV for months and so unsurprisingly the other day when I wanted to watch something on UK Channel 4+1 I found that the channel had moved. Actually, loads of channels had moved. So I did a rescan on both my tuners but found that pretty much none of the channels...

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...
