    Maybe it will be possible to add a menu in deploy to ask user if they want to update MySQL 5.1 to 5.6 with a warning (that it can failed and it will migrate all db from 5.1 to 5.6)

    But in worst case, the 5.1 database is not deleted :)

    If i'm in mood, i can try to look @ the code to add this selection (on upgrade).

    So i think it looks very good and i use now MySQL 5.6 with InnoDB. So all is automaticly switched to the new DB. So i can delet / uninstall the old MySQL 5.1 ?

    After view test all seems to works fine. All TV Channels are there and no error's. So i think i have perfekt update to the new one. Thanks alot !!

    Tomorrow i update then to MP 1.6 final after testing in action tonight.

    Are you shure your tables are in InnoDB format? Have checked this with Workbench?

    Hm i don't know, but the dos window tells me innodb is default... What is workbench ? And how can i check it with that ?
    But that doesn't mean that the tables are innodb. It could be they are (then this installer would have converted them) but most likely they aren't because the db already existed.

    Workbench is a GUI tool for MySQL. But you can also check the tables from cmd by this query:
    SELECT `TABLE_NAME`, `ENGINE` FROM `information_schema`.`TABLES` WHERE `TABLE_SCHEMA` = 'mptvdb';

    Here is my solution to migrate the MyISAM to InnoDB:

    1. Stop the TvServer service
    2. Open a command promp and go to the MySql 5.6 folder: cd "\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin"
    3. mysqldump -u root -pMediaPortal mptvdb>c:\mptvdb.sql
    4. open the c:\mptvdb.sql with notepad and replace all MyISAM texts to InnoDB, save it and exit
    5. mysql mysql -u root -pMediaPortal <c:\mptvdb.sql
    6. Start the TvServer service
