Hi,

I'm user of MP1 and IP TV.

Working all nice with. Today i downloaded MP2 Alpha and than installed SlimTV plugin within these steps:

http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/2_MEDIAPORTAL_2/MediaPortal_2_Alpha_Release/3_Additional_Plugins
I'm using Win/ 64 and in my services I see that TVServer 1.2.2 and TvHome Core service is running.

I also copied SlimTVClient under plugins, so I see SlimTVClinet available in my MP2 menu.

But after click on it, nothing happend. I just get back to home screen of MP2.

What am I doing wrong? I also tried to re-register tsreader.ax.

Notice, that iptv in MP1 works fine...

    Are you running separate Client/Server? Have you gone into the MP2 Client Config section and entered your TVHome IP Address?

    Running on same PC and I don't find any TVHome config under Settings--Plugin...there is no TVHome plugin...

    Ok, I found something interesting. After copying SlimTv4HomeProvider directory (from 7z plugin) into my MP2-clinet/plugin directory and I start MP2 it crashes...

    After deleting SlimTv4HomeProvider directory form mp2/plugin folder, MP2 starts normaly...

    Are you sure that you have only the TV4Home provider in the plugin folder and not the MPExtended provider aswell? Because it is mentioned in the slimTv thread, that this does not work.

    For the config part, start mp2, go to settings, plugins, tv. There you can add the informations to your tv4home service.

    Hm, MPExtended...i think, I don't have. There's no folder named like this. What I do was:
    1. Installed MP2
    2. Downloaded MP2_SlimTV_Plugin.7z and extracted directory
    SlimTvClient under MP2-Client\Plugins\ and
    SlimTv4HomeProvider under MP2-Client\Plugins\

    In this case, if I start MP2 I can't do anything, it just crashes.

    Where should I put SlimTv4HomeProvider? In MP2-Client\Plugins\ or in MP2-Server\Plugins\ folder?


    For the config part, start mp2, go to settings, plugins, tv. There you can add the informations to your tv4home service.

    No mather which folder I use (MP2-Client\Plugins\ or in MP2-Server\Plugins\ folder) I don't have this settings under plugins...

    What am I doing wrong....

    Do u have MP1 TV server running? It need for MP2 tvclient. All TV configuration are in MP1 TV server as before in MP1.
    Furthermore you can only have one provider in your MP2-Client plugin folder

    My two cents worth: I had to delete TV4home installed previously and reinstalled via the link on the SlimTV instructions. All then worked. I am not sure what changed but might have been an older version of TV4home?

    Ok I'm lost...

    In my MP2-Client\Plugins\ folder I have two folder added from 7z:
    -SlimTv4HomeProvider
    -SlimTv4Client

    ...and all other folder which came with MP2 installation. I didn't install nothing else.

    And still, when I opem MP2 it crashes immediatly. I can't even open settings->plugins-> tv

    But If I remove SlimTv4HomeProvider (delete folder from plugins folder) than I can open MP2. I get SLimTV on my "HOME" list, but nothing happend if i clikc on it...and also I don't have TV option under settings-plugin.

    Can someone please carefully read what I wrote and tell me what I'm doing wrong...

    As I wrote before:

    • TVServer of MediaPortal 1.2 or later - can be installed on same PC running MP2 (singleseat) or any other PC (multiseat)
    ----Installed and IPTV is working with MP1
    Installation:

    • Unzip the contents to folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Client\Plugins", that's all.

    -------In my MP2-Client\Plugins\ folder I have two folder added from 7z:
    -SlimTv4HomeProvider
    -SlimTv4Client

    So where is my mistake?

    Just for clarity. I thought having mobile clients for MP2 would be cool. Hence a lot of thought about firewall and edge traversal/security if I access server from outside my network. But from everything I can find MPExtended isn’t yet released for MP2, so the iPhone app won’t work to watch MP2 server content? I’m guessing MP1 is...

    Hello, Thanks for your comments. Generally we recommend to also take a look at the Wiki where many questions are answered. Right - and we explicitly say so in case of the installation not working.;) I guess there is a 50:50 chance if you have two network adapters. I am not sure if "Auto" will automatically use one or the other...

    Uninstalling/reinstalling the above build didn't make a difference, however deleting 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal' during another uninstall/reinstall did.
