The MediaPortal IRC channel moved from EFnet to freenode.
From now on you should not use the EFnet channel anymore, it will be inaccessible soon.
The freenode network offers better security options but also better management. E.g. by registering your nickname, nobody else but you can use it. Also spamming and all those bigger and smaller IRC annoyances shouldn't come up anymore.
- REGISTRATION IS VOLUNTARY!
- SWITCHING TO THE NEW NETWORK IS JUST CLICKING A DIFFERENT SERVER IN YOUR IRC-CLIENT!
The freenode IRC network is a network for open source projects. It offers many more options than the old EFnet ever was able to.
