    • Start MP in windowed mode
    • go to my video
    • go to an folder or video file
    • press f9 to open the context menu
    • send MP to tray
    • try to restore (will do not success because of the context menu block it) :(

    Can confirm, open context menu for files blocks the message pump.

    The message send by Window to inform MP to restore itself is not processed as the Context Menu of Files (there could be others as well) does not allow MediaPortal to process any other messages while MP is not visible.

    This would also impact other system messages (e.g. suspend/resume) for example.

    Need to investigate where in (probably Dialog Plugin) the blocking of the message pump takes place.

    More or less the same symptom but different cause.

    The problem here is that the actual Message Pump is blocked by the Context Menu when MP is not actively rendering. It's about message from Windows and not related to MP's own message. Also applies to fullscreen as well if you allow a minimization to the tray.

    This bug also effects fullscreen mode:

    Steps to reproduce
    Enable minimize to system tray on exit
    Run MP, open a context menu
    Close MP
    * Can not restore MP *

    It would be a great feature if we could select a file to play from Windows File Explorer, either by setting the default application for e.g. the .ts (or any other image, video or audio) file to MediaPortal, or via the File Explorer context menu 'Open with' as other media players can (e.g. JRiver). Currently all that happens when using...

    MP1 MP2 PiP audio problem DE
    I was with TeamViewer on his PC and could see the issues myself. I think it worked sometimes, if the rpogram had only 1 audio stream, but never with multiple audio streams. On my PC I tried to reproduce it and it always worked as expected. LAV is set everywhere and we tried with WASAPI and DirectSound, it makes no difference...

    I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...

    From documentation: For Windows 7 or later - MSSQL versions above 2008, there's no official documentation from Mediaportal but you can install and configure it based on the articles above, google or documentation from Microsoft. Compatibility has not been tested.
