Started TV Server, then asks for User ID & Password? (1 Viewer)

Hi guys

I followed the instructions and installed the MediaPortal SVN, the SQL Server, and the TV Server + Client Plugin.
Then I started the TV server, from the shortcut in the start menu, and then it asks for an user id & password.
I can't figure out what to enter in the user ID section - is it my Name that I specified?

    When you set up the SQL database you are asked for a password to use.
    If you followed the installation guidelines there is a part there that say "Choose a paasword and write it down, you'll need it later"

    Then, at the part you are now sttuck at the instructions say "Enter your password here, aren't you glad you wrote it down?" or something along these lines.

    By default the user is sa.

    Thanks a lot.
    I didn't know that the default user is sa.
    I knew the password, but could not understand why it wasn't working.

    It now works successfully. :)

    Maybe pre-fill out the username with 'sa' in the prompt so it reminds people what the default account username is?
