    • 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 *

    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.

    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...

    I tried upgrading from 2.2.3 to 2.3 on my Win10 HPTC. I fixed a couple of issues on the impossibility to run the 64bit and on the non working hama/ortek remote which is not full RC6 compliant following advice in this forum, but I was unable to see Live TV recordings with the user interface (both the old one and the new nereus one).

    I think there's a master table here http://install.team-mediaportal.com/MPEI/extensions.txt with a list of urls to all the plugin sources. Don't know exactly who has rights to change that
