Having splashed around in the shallow end of the Mediaportal pool for some time & having it functioning stable, I'm wanting to jump in the deep end.

What version of SVN builds are Kiwis using that works with:
  -Mediaportal RC1 -obviously
  -XMLTVNZ grabber
  -Zoomplayer as an external video player -might have to be extremely lucky if anyone is using this combination

Am downloading the latest at present, but seems to be buggy (what else is new), according to the posts. Thanks.

Im using MP Build 19376 or 19311 - pretty sure its the first.  Found the later ones mucked up completely. All have worked fine with Revens xmltvnz program.

If you have MP funtional and stable, I'd suggest staying in the shallows :)

RC2 is almost out, maybe wait for that? its sitting on 100% done, so it seems its just when the team decides to make the full build and release it.

That is good news.

Then bring on MediaPortal II  ........

Cheers for info & advise. Looks like I'll be working on my client machine over the weekend, instead.

I just use RC1 of MP and have all the codecs set just right so i don't need to use an external player for anything at all. I used to upgrade every nightly build of the pre-RC1 releases but i'm thinking i'll only do a monthly (or possibly longer) SVN build of MP now. RC1 is perfectly stable for me and there is no need to change.

The reason I prefer to utilise Zoomplayer is due to its ability to upscale media files. The only issue is not being able to exit using the MCE remote. I have posted it would be great if ZP would recognise the remote natively but have not heard from Blight on the matter.Cry

Tried HIP? thats what i use with zoom player and meedio to give better control over the MCE remote

http://www.byremote.com.au/HIP/

Basically lets you bind any key on the remote to an alias key, to work in any program you specify

Is it any more successful than Girder or EventGhost? Both of which caused more issues than they were worth, not to mention the learning curves required. Does it cause ANY issues with any of the apps on your system? I'll have a look, thanks.

HIP is pretty simple to use, doesnt cause any problems for me, you do have to use the replacement driver for the mce remote tho on th website, or every command will happen twice.

Since it only interacts with programs you specify, it shouldnt effect anything else..

As I'm home sick today, I'll play around with it. One thing, it states about using extenders that cause the IR receiver to constantly light up could cause issues. I have an extender, using an IR blaster to my MCE receiver, which causes precisely this. It will be interesting to see if it is an issue only when configuring the commands? Or all the time? Looks like it is only during learning, according to the FAQ.

dan,

to be honest, this is not very user-friendly just like Girder etc. Unless you are totally conversant with IT-speak you (I) will have trouble with it. Do you know if there is an HIP-For-Dummies tutorial out there. Not the one @ByRemote/FAQ. Also tried the GBPVR Wiki one. I have never understood how to get the primary commands to work, amongst other things.

We are also getting off the original thread. Should start another if we are to continue. One last thing, is there somewhere I can download a configuration file for Mediaportal that is already setup for HIP?
