    I'm going to setup a sepparate server for TV server.
    With MP 2 clients behind it...



    I Would like to use win2k server.
    ('cause mem and cpu req are not so high, and I still have a license lying arround)

    Do any of you guys have an working setup?

    Thanks in advance!

    :cool: MP Rocks!

    Allright, thanks for the answer, found the wike although I found some member who are running on win2k anyhow...

    Maybe I'll give it a shot, despite it isn't supported! :D

    Thanks!

    Thats not a fair answer considering he wasn't asking for support. He was merely asking if anyone has been successful at doing it.

    I have TV Server running on WHS ( server 2003 ) very well and i am aware that it's not supported.

    Whenever we ask a question regarding a non-supported OS, we get swamped with the usual " blah blah blah is no longer supported by MP ". Thats all well and good, but give us a chance to hear what "other non-supported OS users" have to say.

    ( i had to get this off my chest ) :)

    If you try to install 1.0RC1 and up on Windows2000 you get a STOP. So you will not even be able to install...

    If you try on Windows2003/2008 and WindowsXP 64bit you get a warning that those OSes are not officialy supported by the team.

    The installer gives an stop error? hmmm that's not correctly designed, I would like to suggest a normal message like "This OS is not supported" like vvulture mentioned.

    But thanks for clarify things!:D

    Hi vecnar,

    I have changed nothing . Installed my tv card drivers and it all worked 1st go.
    I did have reception problems which were caused by having a signal that was too strong.
    Apart from that, all went well...

    cheers.

    Hi vvulture,

    Thank you for your reply. I have a few more questions.
    Are you running on windows server 2003 service pack 2 or 1?
    Is it stable with all svn builds?
    I was able to get everything working on xp using the same computer.

    Well to be technical, i am running Windows Home Server ( WHS ) which is based on Server 2003 but is infact an OS of it's own.
    I am running SP2 for WHS ( i don't think it's the same as SP2 for Server 2003 ).
    As far as stability, i am running RC1 with weekly SVN 18951 and system is very stable. I will only update again when RC2 is released, and finally when final release comes out.

    Do your tuner cards actually tune ? Do you see a progress bar ?
    Maybe your cards do not work properly under a 2003 environment.

    Apart from the tuning problem, is everything else working ? Can clients connect, watch videos, etc etc... ?

    let me know

    by the way... did you apply the DVB FIX ( patch ) ?

    If not, see this : https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...ner-issue-channel-scan-crash-windows-xp-6344/
    It may help.
