MediaPortal Version: 1.0.0
Windows Version: Windows Vista

Hi,

I have a single seat installation of Mediaportal 1 and evrything was working really well for me. Untill I was messing around with a plugin called Ipimp. I changed the adress of my tv server from my default computer name to a really weird ip address listed in the options. Without realising what the consequences of this where i closed the configuration, to realise later that my tv-server wouldn't start anymore and when I tried to enter the configuration of the tv server it asked me to start the service over and over again. I do not know what to do except to entirly reinstall my mediaportal installation, I really hope there is a easier way fixing this problem.

Thnx,
Murfix

Wait - you changed the name of the TV server in the CLIENT config, and now the TV SERVER config won't start? Or was it in the iPMP configuration?

Or is iPMP a server plugin?

Please describe as exactly as you can what you did again. I am not clear on what happened, so don't have a suggestion for you yet.

ey,

yeah i'am sorry i was a bit unclear i will try to explain it again. I changed the ip-adress/adress from my TV-server so the adress my mediaportal use to connect to my tv-server. This has nothing to do with my Ipimp configurations. I hope I made it clear now and thanks for the reaction.

    Yes Bagal that is the setting I changed. Does anybody have a solution, or do you guys suggest I entirely reinstall my mediaportal installation?

    Thnx,

    I went digging through the registry and
    looking at all the tv server config files,
    But couldn't find the answer. Anyone else
    Have an idea?

    My guess is that it's one of those settings that you won't find unless you change it from the default, I'd suggest searching through the TvServer config files in:
    C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server and
    C:\Users\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server (think this is correct for Vista :confused:)
    and look for the IP address that you changed the setting to.

    If you can't find it here, then open up the registry and search in there for the IP address, I'd leave re-installing as a last resort if I could as you'll have to choose the delete everything option to make sure you delete the setting which means you'll then have to set everything up from scratch again.

    Maybe I'm off point but isn't that address assigned by the DHCP server to the PC? I don't think you can randomly change it without losing touch on the local network.

    That setting is held in the TV Server database in a table called 'server'. The entry uses the hostname if no IP is selected, otherwise it's set to the IP address you set.
