    I woke up today and MediaPortal had crashed. I tried to run MediaPortal again and all that's starting is Configuration. :mad: I restarted my HTPC and instead of MediaPortal, Configuration is now launched (by the General options startup configuration in MediaPortal). :confused:

    I then ran Configuration and enabled Watchdog, clicked OK and got several errors related to plugins being incompatible all of a sudden (nothing about my installation has been changed). Running MediaPortal now works. :mad:

    Providing logs for this isn't possible as it's working now, but it's been a rough hour here.

    Hi emphatic

    I'm guessing that your MediaPortal.xml file got corrupted.
