Hello everyone.

I have this "little" problem.
MediaPortal, when fully booted and finished checking folders with videos, occupies over 2 Gb of RAM.
Since this happens I can't see anything anymore. It closes while I see any movie, regardless of size, resolution or duration.

I use MediaPortal 1.23 (but I have also tried with 1.22 and 1.24).
As skin I use StreamedMP MOD 3.1.0.3495
For the TV series MP-TVSeries 4.3.6.0 (which, however, does not show me the metadata and TV broadcasting of the shows, but finds them in the Windows interface).
For Moving Pictures 1.8.3.1 movies (the latest version didn't read me the movie metadata).
I have 20,895 episodes in 1,324 seasons in 409 TV series and 1,173 films.
I say it so you can get an idea and, if you have a collection similar to mine, you can tell me if the behavior is similar to mine.
I think the problem is the plugins database because if I disable the 2 plugins the RAM usage drops to about 300 Mb (use that I had until not long ago, in my memory).

I complete the software configuration by saying that I have Windows 10 x64 pro 1909 (updated), AMD 20.1.3 Driver, Java 8.2210.11 and little else (I use this computer only as HTPC so there are very few programs installed).
I use MadVR but the situation (RAM use and MediaPortal crash) does not change even if I switch to EVR.

The hardware is:
Motherboard Asus PRIME Z370-A II
Intel Pentium Gold G5400 processor
RAM Crucial Ballistix Sport LT BLS2K4G4D26BFSC - 8 Gb
Video card: Asus ROG Strix RX VEGA64 OC

I hope someone can help me (without simply telling me to delete something) ...

Thanks in advance to those who will give me a hand.

    I think the problem is the plugins database because if I disable the 2 plugins the RAM usage drops to about 300 Mb (use that I had until not long ago, in my memory).

    Can you disable only one, and see which one is the cause?

    I have already done this test.
    By disabling one of the two, I still arrive at about 2 Gb of RAM (or slightly less), more slowly but I get there anyway.
    If I disable them both I stay on 300 Mb.

    TVSeries and MovPics?
    NO, I made a mistake ...
    Even without the two plugins, the use of RAM slowly grows.
    After 5 minutes I am at 900 mb without having done anything ...

    I am still here, thanks for the input, so I have now settled on mp1, I am not afraid of a lot of tweaking. Good news on tuners is I can run side by side with my WMC setup, as my tuners are using DVBlink to combine channels for WMC, so WMC is using 8 virtual tuners from DVBlink while MP is using the tuners directly. Of course they are...

    Yes, it is, since a long time. I've used it for some years and still use it. Only the client plugin was not successfully ported to MP2. One glitch is still existing in the server plugin, you need to trigger the search manually. Normally it should run automatic but this did not work, at least not for me... Even without automatic...
