Hi folks,

I'm currently installing a couple of mediaportal clients which will access movies & music from the server. Is there any way to have each client use the fanart on the server, or does each client have to download it's own fanart?

    I'm pretty sure you can get Moving Pictures to grab the fanatic from your network instead of the internet but it will still store a copy locally on the client.

    At least this is what I remember, might all be different now....

    Hi.
    You can change location to store fanart with a hack. Better is to use local fanart and .nfo stored together with your movies. So you only need to download and import them once... You may have a look at MovPicNfo, it's to find in this forum...

    Use UNC network share paths for all the movie/tv/video/picture/music folders (even on the server side)
    Then install MP on client
    after installation just copy the MP appdata and MP program files directory from the server and overwrite the ones on the client
    Then you will have everything pre setup with no configuration and no scraping/DLing of fanart

    That fixed the problem. I just manually installed VC_redist.x64.exe and reinstalled 1.32 64-bit. Thanks for that. A couple of things; the deployment tool for 1.32 doesn't remove the previous version when you're updating from 1.31 to 1.32 and "MediaPortal TV Server" gets installed even when you choose to install the client only. I...

    Good shout! Working when setting the network to private. Windows 7 firewall certainly doesn't behave like it does in Windows 10/11. Saved me a lot of time having to debug the code. Thanks for the tip!

    @Brownard another logs of failed installations. I'll take a look into the user management. Edit: I can confirm user management is completey broken with NET4 and NET6 :( Neither an existing profile can be selected nor a new one can be created.
