    Update to my post above-
    The 120mm fan in the PSU went out so I replaced it with an Antec 350w.

    I'm trying to wrangle one of these for something less than $500 as it would be better than simply a 17"LCD and it would let me navigate MP without powering on the big-screen just for music!

    Also, my sig shows that main rig as well as the SFF box I built for use in the bedroom.

    Hi Frodo,

    I noticed that you have the same TV-card as I do; Hauppage PVR-350.
    I am seeing no live picture from TV-Out in MediaPortal, only a test screen on the TV with vertical colour lines... Works perfectly with live picture in WinTV2K from Hauppage...
    I presume it works nicely in your PC within MP? Could you please post your important card specific settings so I might copy them in my setup and make it work.

    Oh by the way this is complex SW so please be very specific.

    Thanks

    Morten

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
