MediaPortal 2.1 Pre2 Release
Written by Team-MediaPortal on 11 February 2017.

Attached to this news you will find the Pre2 Release version of MediaPortal 2.1.

Since we published the MediaPortal 2.1 Pre Release in late December, we fixed many issues and further improved the product to provide the best possible experience to the users.

While MediaPortal 2 is now a fully stable product, some of the issues that the community reported require further work. Because of this the MP2 team decided to publish another Pre release version to allow the community to benefit from all the bug fixes and improvements that we added since the beginning of the year.

Highlights of this release

Besides numerous bug fixes, we have included the following major improvements:

New WMC skin
Coming from WMC, because not able to use it anymore with Windows 10, but looking for the same lean usability? The new WMC skin will offer the full look and feel, that you are used to and offer a lot of additional opportunities making it even better.

Default theme
WMC 01 9bf5b WMC 02 3c1f1 WMC 03 f8ee1 WMC 04 02817

Dark theme
WMC Dark 1 bc86b WMC Dark 2 f7224 WMC Dark 3 51449 WMC Dark 4 a1b88

New BlueVision skin themes
The BlueVision skin has been revamped and new themes have been added: Windows10, Titanium Extended and Grey allow to adjust the look of MediaPortal to your personal preference.

Completely reworked media management
All kind of media (movie, series, audio, videos, etc.) will now be automatically scraped. Respective online information (descriptions, covers, posters, fanart, artists, etc.) is downloaded and added to the central database. Users can define which online sources to use and what kind of data to download. Local fanarts and descriptions are also supported.

Enhanced movie and series management
Movies can now be shown filtered by collections (aka movie sets)

I just love it.
It is very easy to install, it download the file I need and install if I dont have it.
That is alot of nice plugin and other that make it so easy to use it.

Well yes that have happend that is not so easy to understand but the forum they have is very good and people is very nice to help.

If you going to use it to recording TV, then I like to give you a tip For The Record that you can find here http://www.4therecord.eu/



Jun 10, 2009 Version: 1.0.2 OS: WinXP Ease: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 10/10



As a free tool you need to google around and use the forums to get the most from this tool but evetually you can get it all setup. Find it stable now and very flexible if you spend the time to set it up. Now the family have a great UI. I use Imon remote that came with silverstone case. lcd and remote work well with media portal app.


Aug 25, 2006 Version: 2.0.0.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 7/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value: 10/10 Overall: 9/10



Previous review is unfair; this is a work in progress and it's free.

It looks a great deal better than BeyondTV, Showshifter, MCE, MyTheatre, iMedian, GBPVR, Meedio, and the others.

I've found that GBPVR has very bad stuttering when playing back live TV - this doesn't happen with MediaPortal or Showshifter.

Media Portal supports multiple DVB-T cards, plus analog MPEG2 capture cards + devices - BeyondTV still does not support DVB-T cards, and Meedio does not *officially* support more than one DVB-T card at a time. GBPVR supports multiple DVB-T cards and analog cards, but I think you have to specifically assign which channels you want to view against each DVB card which is painful.

However, GBPVR does allow you to have Media MVP devices around the house that can receive video from the central GBPVR - I don't think this is possible with Media Portal just yet.

Certainly, Media Portal has it's irritations; it still occasionally causes a BSOD when performing DVD playback for example.

But its potential (its source code is open, it's free, but it doesn't suffer the from hardware support strangling that occurs in Linux) makes it worth sticking with - and there are some really neat plugins such as being able to view lots and lots of movie trailers (assuming your Media PC has a connection to the internet), plus it's reasonably easy to get it to function with the myriad of remote controls out there.

The Lady of The House likes it, despite the fact it crashes occasionally (much less now it's reaching an official 0.2.0 release). She likes the cute little chap with the Popcorn when playing DVD's, and how he changes depending on what functionality is being used.

And believe me that's more important than the occasional instability if you want to have your Media Centre accepted underneath the TV.

The reviews I read tell of a different software than I installed. Lots of bugs, lots of errors. Not very smart programing at all.

The music selection is poor. I have a directory of ogg files, which the program scanned in, read the id3 tags, and added to it's database. Which is another problem with this program, the database just isn't there, it's more of a directory listing. When you attempt to play an ogg file, it passes it off as an mp3 file to Windows media player. WMP errors out and doesn't play the file.

Movie selection shows a default icon without a video preview.

It has potential, but Media Portal needs a database and catalog program. In it's current state, it is nothing more than using windows explorer with a background. Not an HTPC app in it's current state.

To be honest Google's Picasa or ACDSee is a better HTPC app than this program.



Feb 23, 2006 Version: 0.2.0 OS: WinXP Ease: 5/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 9/10 Overall: 4/10



Runs rings around its commercial alternatives. Tried all the pvr's to date (both free and pay-for) and nothing comes close to mediaportal for functionality. Personally I love its xmltv integration - very intuitive design in being able to search your tv listings including by genre, episode.

Only other pvr i considered was showshifter, simply because it was the fastest at changing channels on my machine, but again it didnt have half the features.

Mediaportal all the way. Big Thanks go to Frodo and all responsible!
