Hi,

I just wanted to setup MP according to the TV Quick Setup but I was not asked for any database password and my TV DVB-S2 card does not offer a country selection. No I have more than 1000 channels of which many are in foreign languages or blocked. What can I do?

Thank you!

Thank you very much! Is it possible that the Quick Setup Guide is wrong then?: http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_MEDIAPORTAL_1/13_Quick_Setup/2_TV_Quick_Setup
It shows a different setup screen than on the link you gave me. Or does this have a different reason?

I have a dual tuner card in my computer. But when I do the scan for both tuners it seems like the scan for the second tuner just updates what the first tuner has already found. Do I have to do any configuration if I want to watch a different channel than the one which is recording or does MediaPortal automaically notice what I want to do and select the correct tuner "on the fly"?

Hi CGT,

I will try to explain more clearly what I meant

When installing mediaportal , you can at a certain time choose for a simple or an advanced setup, if you want a diferent password than the default password then you should choose the advanced setup.(there are more options with Advanced Setup -->see wiki)
If you go for a simple setup, the default password for the DB is "MediaPortal".

If you want to record or you have a second TV (with a second mediaportalclient) and you wish to watch a other channel, you need no special configuration.

After scanning the channels,you should create your one group of channels, see the following wiki:http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_...ration/TV-Server_Configuration/03_TV_Channels

Do you have any more questions, do not hesitate.(y)

Hi Jean,

Thank you very much for your detailed explanation!

I actually don't need a different password than the default one (right now). I just wanted to point out that what the TV Quick Setup guide says deviates from what I experienced. But maybe this is written for people who chose an advanced setup.

Thank you :)

I have found a prepared list of German channels which is exactly what I needed :) Thank you!
