    From time to time MePo stays black when I'm resuming my htpc.
    I can hear that my keystrokes on the remote are recognized by MePo and the coursor is visible also but I can't see MePo in these cases.
    Than I have to start the taskmanager to end MePo and start it again.

    This happens when when I'm resuming the htpc and my TV that is connected with hdmi was not started before.
    I'm aware that this issue might be corrected with release 1.31.

    As work around I would like to map a "restart MePo" action to a remote button.
    I can also add something like "...mediaportal.exe/restart" to a button on my keyboard.

    Does MePo have such an option?

    Do you have this setting enabled? If not it might help you:

    MP Config->General->Startup/Resume Settings->Restart MediaPortal On Resume

    I've made a workaround using Autohotkey. If you don't want to install that should this problem arise for you, you can use my compiled .exe and add it to the autostart folder of Windows 8.1 and above.

    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...

    Long time ago I mapped several keys for different applications and they did work all flawless. Now I wanted to add some more mappings and found out that the new ones don't work. I don't know why but the logs are telling me that the key is not mapped. The screenshot below is showing that the "Exit" key is mapped to the keystroke ESC...

    Thanks for that but it does seem to me that Madvr is the issue here, I guess it is not as robust as the EVR or does not get shut down as elegantly, I also suspect, though I have not tried it, that the result would be the same for playback of any video, i.e. not just TV. Given that German TV is now all transmitted as full HD, the need...

    So my project yesterday was to get my MCE remote working and perfectly mapped with the internal IR receiver of my Antec Fusion Remote case. I have pretty much succeeded using IRSS, great! However there is something I would like to know if I could do in a better way. There are some buttons on my remote (e.g.Visualizations, Eject) that...
