When I have mp running, you have the button in the right corner to shut down your pc. In my case I do not want to shut down but I want the pc to go to standby. Is it possible to change this by a setting in mp or on my pc.

    What version of MP do you use? In the later CVS of .2rc1 and all versions of rc2 there should be an hibernate option in that shut down dialogue.

    I don't know if it's just me, but has anyone noticed that if you choose the Standby or Hibernate options in that menu in MP, MP shuts itself down, standby/hibernates, then when you turn it on again, MP isn't loaded anymore because it shut itself down previously.

    Wouldn't it be more logical if it didn't shut itself down? I can standby/hibernate the machine without any problems with MP running (using a Girder command from my remote).

    Does this happen on other MP computers? If so, what do you think?

    p.s. sorry for slightly hijacking your thread :D

    Yep Sam, I also saw this behaviour which is indeed not very logical. If I manually hibernate the HTPC with a recording scheduled the recording won't start as MP is not running :-(

    My "solution" is only to use the automaic hibernation of the PowerScheduler which works fine for me...

    Maybe you can fix this?!? ;-) ;-) ;-)

    the only way I hibernate MP is to simply press "the green button" on my MCE remote. As Maschine has said, this then auto hibernates the PC after 15 minutes of idle.

    When using the hibernate option within Media Portal , MP closes itself and than hibernates computer and no recording starts.
    I mentioned this right after Smirnuff implemented this function, but unfortunately he went away and noone fixed this, yet.
    So you need to use powerscheduler or your remote with a hibernate option until it will be fixed.

    Indeed I too cry out for this feature, a config option to set whether you'd like Media Portal to shut itself down before hibernating/going into standby would be a HUGE help.

    Thanks for the replies. Looks like I'll have to do a bit of work then! Of course the other option is to have a mini PC connected to the TV and use MP2 on that instead of via Kodi. Something for the future perhaps.

    thank you very much for your quick response. Obviously 1.30 seems to support wifiRemote and mpextented so I can continue to use MPiviewer for ipad and that's what was important to me. it's nice to have taken the time for my problem which will undoubtedly be useful to others as well.

    You could try using the UNC paths for the timeshift and record folders. On the client machine go to MediaPortal configuration - TV/Radio - Advanced Options tick the UNC paths tick box and put the network paths for timeshift and record folders in the appropriate lines and click OK.

    It’s technically not possible to combine the library and folder view. This is also the case for other HTPC softwares I fear. The media can quickly organized by filters, sorting etc., it’s not about fanart. The folder view is meant just as a basic navigation feature.
