    Extract the files to the mediaportal folder found at

    C:program files\team mediaportal\mediaportal.

    Then i use a free program called winpatrol, a great tool for various reasons, and this is just one.

    Run winpatrol, go to startup programs/add, find mptray in the MP folder and that is it, now mptray will run as a service everytime you start windows.

    This is very usefull if not used to running command line prompts.

    Thanks for your answer.
    I did follow what you suggested but no success.
    The program runs because I can see it in the task manager, but it does not appears in the tray and (therefore?) it does not work.
    I am using XP sp2 and Mediaportal 0,2
    Thanks for your help.

    Does not appear in systray, if it is running as a process then it will work with the green button from the mce remote and start MP.

    Have you got use mce remote selected in MP setup.

    Hi,
    I think the remote is set up correctly beacause it works once I have opened MP manually.
    Also, the green button takes me back to the main windows when pressed, so I think it works, but the MPTray still does not.

    Toshiba qosmio G20 154 is using MCE as the operating system i presume.
    is it the standard MCE remote with microsoft model 1039 on the underside of it, or is it made and supplied by toshiba, as may be something there stopping MPtray from doing its job, and opening mediaPortal.

    Regards

    You are right the remote and the receiver are supplied by toshiba, but: if the green button runs once media portal is open, why it should not work when media portal is off?

    One thing I did not notice before, is that the remote receiver's responds with a red led when it recive a command from the remote, but it does not respond if media portal is off.

    I believe mptray should activate the receiver but it does not seem to do that.

    The receiver is connected to the pc via a usb cable.

    Actually I am not running mptray and media portal on the qosmio toshiba but I am runnig it on a pc self built.

    Thank again for your assitance.

    ciao
