    I recently switched over to MP2 after a few years use of MP1. I only use MP to watch (ota) television, through my PC tuner card. I’m wondering if there isn’t a way to open MP2 directly to the tv guide screen, and skip all the intervening screens that I presently need to negotiate to get there?

    Thanks much,

    N.

    It is not possible to load MP2 directly into specific screens. But you could hide all main menu entries besides "TV" (and "others" which can not be removed) in Nereus skin by using the menu editor (right-mouse click or menu-button on menu). As a result you would just see the quick access items for TV and can reach the EPG with about one click.

    PS: You need the latest version of MP2 (2.3.2) to do that.

    Thanks very much. It does indeed work (for some reason, the first time I needed to press "0" repeatedly before it would work, but after that, it's working fine. Much appreciated.

    I have never used a Silicon Dust network tuner, but from reading elsewhere I have a recollection that in Silicon Dust's own configuration tool you need to select "MediaPortal" as the output destination (or something like that). So this might be worth checking (just in case I have remembered it correctly). -- from CyberSimian in the UK

    From discussions in another thread, it has become apparent that there is a "gotcha" with regard to the "Schedules Direct" plugin for "TV Server". :eek: Schedules Direct provide EPG data in the following formats: JSON format: this is available for all countries that Schedules Direct support. XML format: this is available only for the...

    That's fun. I shattered my kneecap on one of those e-scooters. I'm terribly out of shape from the months of being bedridden. I didn't get fat, at least, but a walk in the park is not an expression of something being easy anymore.
