(Though we do accept donations!)
MediaPortal is quite simply a revolution in media control, it allows you to watch, listen, read and play your media as you want to, without getting in the way, or having to learn difficult navigations systems.
MediaPortal also includes MPAR, which is a clever little addition that ensures that the playback of your videos is smooth - no more stuttering movies!
MediaPortal comes with a pretty stunning looking 'skin' (just look at those gorgeous screen shots). but you can also mix it up a little to make it even more to your liking, pop into the gallery to see how things can look.
If you are looking for something a little more advanced, MediaPortal can connect to your AVR, to fully support Dolby Digital, DTS, and other HD formats; With the correct plugins it will even connect to your home automation system, allowing you to control things directly from MediaPortal.
Current technologies are also supported, so you can sit back and enjoy that new Blu-Ray movie in full DTS in your own home, for the full cinema experience - and with our comprehensive plugins, new and emerging technologies will be supported.
In fact, just about the only thing MediaPortal doesn't do is popcorn, fizzy drinks or hot-dogs!
