    Hi!

    I would like to see the current folder's name in My Music. Why not put an string up in the left corner and replace "Songs" with the current folder name? I can't see any reason why it has to be an "Music" - text in the background and an "Songs" - string on it?

    This also applies to My Videos, I want to see what folder I browse.

    I am hoping as MP moves forward (more features) that the ability to modify each display screen becomes easier and easier for users. MP is a great starting place and I see many possibilities that can happen within this platform. Like you, I want even more (not so much that it is cluttered) info displayed on the screen, but I want the ability to see weather info and time and ... well, things I want. I think it will happen, but we have to be patient.

    For me, it would be GREAT if there could be a way to EASILY develop a control (actually to be more like Konfabulator & widgets on Mac OS-X) and then add that control onto any of the displays through the screen/display editor that is being worked on. This would be too great!

    Got into Disk Management to Change Drive Letter and Path for J: but found the "Mount in the following empty NTFS folder" & "Browse" are both grayed out. Diskpart using an Admin CMD allowed me to Select Volume and Assign it to an empty NTFS folder. You've been a great help.

    I changed the setting to delayed. And it seems to be working. No problems with the reboots, so far. Thanks for the suggestions.

    I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...

    How do you check it? And why keep it when we have an IMDBID in the database - it's almost 100% guaranteed accurate identification of the film, IMDBURL is just unnecessary information that will clutter the database.
