    Hi guys,

    I've installed MPExtended and WebMediaPortal and all seems fine on my HTPC - I can access the web interface via http://localhost:8080 and watch my TV shows and live TV, etc. I've also made my own login.

    However, I can't seem to access the web interface over my LAN. For example, I type in http://192.168.1.98:8080 on my desktop and it just times out no matter what browser I use.

    I guess I'm missing something? I'm assuming the whole point of this WebMediaPortal is that you can access the media on your HTPC from other machines, plus watch TV and set up recordings, etc.

    OK, I had to open port 8080 (TCP) in Windows 7's Firewall. I assumed this was done automatically during installation since a Windows Firewall window popped up and I clicked "allow" but I guess not. :/

    I still can't watch live TV or recorded media though, I just get "video not found or access denied". Are there more ports I need to open maybe?

    Err I sorted it, not really sure how though. Opened some other ports to do with WiFiRemote and restarted the services I think. :p
