I am new to MediaPortal and by no means a computer expert so I wanted to ask how difficult MediaPortal 1 and/or 2 is to install and set up. I want to be able to stream my video collection to a Smart TV with all access and controls resident on the TV vice having to control from my PC. My questions are: is installation intuitive enough for a novice, what should I do in advance of installation to ensure smooth functionality, which version is preferred for my application, and what installation options do you recommend. A lot to ask I know. I've read much of the guides but wanted to get user hands-on experience before I jump in with both feet. Thank you all for your advice and assistance.
