When I watching videos after video in a specific folder fiinshes it goes back to the menu instead of playing the next video in the folder.
I have searched high and low for the setting and can't find where I can enable that when one video is finished it automatically plays next one in the folder.

Can you please help?
Thanks!

    Can you say how the files are named, they do have to follow a naming convention to work as a single file.

    What happens if in MP config\video "every movie has its own directory" is enabled.

    All the files are in the same directory...

    For instance I am watching Scrubs.S06E05.avi right now and file next in line is Scrubs.S06E06.avi.
    They are all in Scrubs Season 5 folder.

    I just switched from Tvix 4100SH and on it it would automatically play next file in line after you finished watching current one.

    In MP currently when one episode is done I have to pick up the remote and click on the next file myself...when you are watching 6-7 20 minute episodes in a row you can see how that can get annoying.
    It just seems a little bit strange that such a simple task is not flat out configurable in MP.

    rekenaar...THANKS for the help!

    Playlist thing worked just fine, I tried TV Series plugin, but it also went back to folder contents instead of playing the next episode.

    Once again, many thanks.
    I am truly surprised MP doesn't support that natively, as any other media player does.

    Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

    Hi. Network tuners can be shared even on the same PC (done it often while testing different software, I'm using SAT>IP tuner that are similar to hdhomerun tuner but for European DVB). But you can not use them on both systems at the same time ofc.. Means if WMC is using a tuner (e,g, for a scheduled recording) MP can't use the same...

    OK, this is specifically for people in Belgium (Vlaanderen) who are using Telenet Cable with MediaPortal 2. Next year (Edit: this year, in march 2020) the Telenet provider will stop broadcasting Analog TV and Radio signals on their cable, and make the switch to Digital (DVB-C). The radio signals will disappear completely, so you'll...
