What's new for MediaPortal 1.19.0 Release


Installation, Upgrade, Download and Feedback

Installation

microsoft net framework 4 e711eSince we switched to .NET4 you need to make sure you have.NET4 installed on your computer (not needed if you are on Windows 8 because it comes with .NET4, but you NEED the .NET 3.5 features enabled!). Otherwise you are not able to install MediaPortal and the installer just quits.

Download-Link: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer)

Aside from that when doing a clean installation of the 1.19.0 Release there is nothing else to worry about.

Upgrade

update-iconUpgrading from MP 1.2.0 Beta or later to 1.19.0 Release

All MediaPortal 1.2.0 Beta installations can be upgraded to MP 1.19.0 Release without losing your settings.

Plugins:

If you are running MediaPortal 1.6.0 or earlier, then it is possible that some of your previously installed plugins will be shown as incompatible after the upgrade to 1.19.0 Release! Whether or not a plugin is incompatible depends on the MediaPortal subsystems the plugin uses.
All plugins that work for the 1.7.1 HotFix release, should also work with the 1.19.0 Release.

Upgrading Extensions:

The easiest way to upgrade your extensions is by launching the MediaPortal Extension Installer, and let it check for updated versions. However this only works for extensions that use our MPEI system. If the author of the extension releases it as a stand alone installer, you must contact them for an updated version.


General note about Upgrades

Manually stop TV-Service!

television-iconOn some systems our installer is not able to update the TV-Server installation because its files are locked or the service can not be stopped.
For upgrades to 1.19.0 Release we recommend that you manually stop the TV-Service and make sure, via Windows Task Manager (enable the "all users" option), that the TvService.exe process is really gone before starting to upgrade.

Custom TV-Service properties

If you manually changed the properties of the TV-Service (like restart on error options), then you must redo these changes after the upgrade. The installer is not able to save and restore your custom service properties when it installs the new version of the TV-Service.

The MP2 team is proud to present the release of MediaPortal 2.1.3

MediaPortal 2.1.3 is a full-blown media center software that addresses the most common user requirements out of the box. Besides its TV and Radio services it is also offering a complete media management for movies, series and music, including posters, album and fan art as well as additional metadata (e.g. actor, director and much more) that are automatically downloaded from the internet. MediaPortal 2.1 also provides access to online video sources such as Amazon Prime. Integrated news, weather information and management for your digital images complete this software package. 

The modern client/server architecture in combination with the central database greatly simplifies the use and management of the system. New clients can easily be added to the environment and connected to the MediaPortal 2 Server for immediate use. 


This service upgrade fixes several bugs and introduces some new features:

TV

  • It is now possible to delete active recordings. A security dialogue will prompt for confirmation that you really want to terminate the active recording and delete the file.
  • New TsReader and CloseCaption parser versions increase the stability of TV playback. 
  • TV FullGuide display can be switched to a single channel view by selecting the channel name. This is useful if for example you would like to record a particular show on this channel.

Extensions

  • MediaPortal 2.1.3's functionality can be further extended through the installation of additional plugins. The choice of extensions, while currently limited, is steadily growing. Have a look at what else is available in our Featured Plugins section.

Installation, Upgrade, Download and Feedback

Installation

Upgrade

  • MediaPortal 2.1 introduced a new media database structure that is not compatible with versions prior to MediaPortal 2.1 Pre Release. The installer will recognize an existing incompatible database and rename it before upgrading the system to the new version.
  • If you are upgrading from an earlier version than MediaPortal 2.1 you will need to redo your server settings including the setup of media sources. MediaPortal 2.1.3 will automatically scan each path and import online information as per your settings to allow using all the new features.
  • Weather: If you are upgrading from an already installed MediaPortal 2 version prior to MP 2.1.1, all previously defined locations are incompatible with the new Weather provider of MediaPortal 2 and need to be deleted. To do so start the client application and immediately navigate to the respective setting entry at Settings | Plugins | Weather | Locations and delete all displayed locations.

Feedback
