Hi All,

I have been a WMC user for many years and have now decided to try something new.

I tried Kodi but decided against it as it doesn't quite give me the flexibility I need.

I have today installed MP 2.3 with the WMC style GUI to avoid giving "she who must be obeyed" a reason to carry on about changing things too much.

I have installed the the radio streaming plugin and Emulators, which I will finalise later on, but would appreciate someone pointing me in the direction of a tutorial to populate it with games and have it run.

What I did like about Kodi was the torrent downloader which allowed me to stream movies and TV shows from torrent sources. I have seen the ones for MP 1 but there doesn't seem to be one for MP 2. Is there a possibility that either there is one in development or can a downloader for MP 1 work in 2.3?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Check the Wiki page of the plugin: Emulators

    I've not used MP1 yet, but nothin like this is existing for MP2 and I'm sure it will also not, because torrent is mostly used for illegal content.

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

    Would have been cool, but no. For this, and a few other reasons, I moved on to Channels DVR. More or less the same idea though, as I'm using Channels as a backend for Plex with xTeVe as a virtual tuner. I've lost touch somewhat with what's going on with MePo, but Channels is being very actively developed (which is key, as there's a...

    Thank you for the feedback. It was a hands-on education getting everything setup via trial and error with Mediaportal 2, but it's all set. To obtain the program guide, I'm using Zap2XML. I created a batch file with one command to use Zap2XML to download the program data from tvguide.com (which then updates the XML file) and then...

    I've found that when streaming live tv from server to client via rtsp/rtp, the initial playback on the 1st channel selection does take a number of seconds for the MP client to actually send the RTSP describe/setup and play messages to the MP TV server, however, subsequent channel changes as initiated from client from live tv are...
