    I can also confirm a longer mediaportal startup time since installing MP0.7.1.

    Like you said originally fforde, the first time starting took a long time (I thought it was hung). After that, I still notice a longer than previous builds during startup at the 'Loading windows plugins...' screen.

    After looking at your log arryo, I think you are right, Moving Pictures may be the culprit. I am afraid there is no short term solution but in the future we consider perhaps running our startup logic asynchronously so that MediaPortal can go ahead and startup, even though initialization processes for Moving Pictures are still pending. This however would mean that in the GUI you would not be able to access Moving Pictures until the initialization has completed. This is a sticky issue though. The startup processes are important, they maintain the integrity of the database. So I am really hesitant to allow other logic to run before initialization has completed...

    i was wondering why the version 0.7.1a doesn't have this problem. Maybe you could debug all the new features added from that version

    Hrmm, there really shouldn't be much of a difference between those two versions. Maybe for some reason your sort meta-data is getting rebuilt every time. When you launch in the config screen does the progress bar pause for a particularly long time on any one task when using the official 0.7.1?

    yes, the progress bar pauses for pretty long time than it should be when starting up, but switch back and forth between tasks i think its' normal

    I wondered what that was. I have the problem too with .71 - I don't restart MP often so I hadn't noticed, but even after .71 is installed and it's restarted a couple times it's slow.

    I'll post my logs when I get home tonight, the more the merrier I figure.
