Hello,

I'm curious, is there any way to completly remove the miniview which is shown in the menus after you exit the movieplayer? In other words, I want MP to be dead quiet after I press escape. In my opinion the miniview is just an annoyance.

Also, when I bring up the OSD during movie playback, the movie get darkened, is this also possible to remove?

Keep up the good work.

    Hi,

    1) I "fear" this is only possible by editing the code and compile your own MP version.

    2) I assume (you could have filled out the support template), that you have set overlay as video renderer, set it to VMR9 renderless.

    Righto.

    Hm. Overlay is the only renderer I seem to be able to use if I want to use the OSD at all. The others make the movie lag seconds behind. Probably due to lowend gfx adapter (Geforce MX400).

    And correct, I stand ashamed. Stupid mistake not filling it out. *slaps own wrists*.

    I will try to correct my wrongdoings by filling it now ;).

    Hi,

    jep. Sorry to say that, but your graphics card is to old. MP renders its GUI like a game and uses many DirectX enhancements. VMR9 works well with suiteable cards, the overlay support of MP is unfortunatly not as good. You should consider to buy a DX9 card.

    ATi: 9550 and above
    nVidia: 5200FX and above

    HTH, Flip. ;)

    Or just live with the darkness ;). The thing is that im going to put the damn thing in a very very small box. Which means using the onboard hardware. I guess I have to go back to the original plan and stick with an alternative. And use MP for my next project which is larger and meaner :D.

    Slightly more expensive option, get a newer board with good onboard video (new nvidia 6150) then which come in mATX.

    Well I have a working solution, I just wanted to try some more options. I had this mainboard lying around so I thought I might just try it. Im about to build a more modern system and will stick with more highend stuff then. This solution cost me about 100$ to get up going and it works perfectly well considering that price. The only thing I really miss is proper game support. But I guess that will have to wait until version two. :D.

    This box will be for my bedroom tv and the other for my livingroom with more power, so no biggie really. I just have to move into the livingroom for the Mame.

    By the way, can I switch to mysql or similiar without messing with the code? Thru odbc or something with MP?

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...

    Hi CyberSimian, I have concluded the same thing. Disabled "Show last active module when resuming" and go to TV after starting up in the Home screen. Would be nice if it could start on TV (if that's where MP was when put to sleep), just like my older Panasonic PVR. But this workaround is reasonable. I will add that sometimes, even...
