MediaPortal 2.2.2 Release

We are proud to present MediaPortal 2.2.2
MediaPortal 2.2.2 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 2.2.2 also provides access to online video sources such as Netflix and Amazon Prime. Integrated news, weather information and management for your digital images complete this software package.

This update includes several bug fixes and a few new things. You can find a list of changes with all details at the end of this news major changes are:

TV/Radio
One-click deletion of grouped recordings: Grouped recordings in the TV recording folder, e.g. series, can now be deleted with one single click instead having to go manually through each individual entry.

Radio recordings: You can now skip, pause and resume within a radio recording like in any TV recording

Manual schedules: Manually added schedules will now appear in the list of scheduled recordings
System
Client wake-up at 2:00: A bug that caused a client to wake up every night was fixed.

Party Music Player: The party player is now capable of handling large playlists with more than 1000 entries
Extensions
MediaPortal 2.2.2's functionality can be further extended through the installation of additional plugins. The choice of extensions, while currently limited, is steadily growing. Discover what else is available in our Featured Plugins section.

Trakt
A new Trakt plugin has been developed with better sync and watched flags management, completely compatible with the new User Management system, allowing different trakt accounts for different users. The development of the plugin has been moved out from the standard Mediaportal 2 development. This will ease development and bug fixes.
For details or manual, please refer to the related Wiki section.

Webradio
Webradio allows you to play internet radio without having to leave your familiar MP2 user interface.The plugin comes with over 10000's online radio stations from all over the world. Create your own filter from Country, City and any more. Make your own favorites list.

Moving from MP1 to MP2
Procedures to install MP2 in parallel to MP1 are described in the Wiki

For all those who would like to move from MP1 to MP2 and preserve their current media organisation, our forum member raffe has created a small tool that will extract information from your MP-TvSeries and MovingPictures databases and picture folders, The tool will leave all your original data untouched, create .nfo files for all your media and copy existing pictures from your MovingPictures and MP-TvSeries to your new MediaPortal 2 media folders. The .nfo files and pictures then allow a smooth and quick import of all your media info into MediaPortal 2. See thee respective forum thread for further details.
Full list of changes
You can review all changes by taking a look at changelog: MediaPortal 2.2.2
For known issues please check out our Jira and our Bug Reports Forum.
Installation, Upgrade, Download and Feedback
Installation
Download the zip archive and check the "Allow access" box in the context menu. Then extract the archive and execute the MP2 Setup file.The installer will automatically download any missing components and install them.

Windows 10 K and KN editions: You need to manually download and install the additional Microsoft Media feature pack first. This will add the Windows Media Player and related technologies that are required by MediaPortal 2 to work.
Wiki: http://www.team-mediaportal.com/wiki/display/MediaPortal2/Installing+MediaPortal+2

Upgrade
MediaPortal 2.2.2 has a new media database structure that is not compatible with versions prior to MediaPortal 2.2 Pre Release. The installer will recognize an existing incompatible database and migrate the content to the new version. Please be aware that this might take a while depending on the amount of your media items. The data base migration progress is shown by an indicator in the client.

N.B.: If you upgrade from an earlier version than MediaPortal 2.1 the database is incompatible and cannot be migrated. You will need to redo your server settings including the setup of media sources.

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.

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.


Review by disturbed1 on Feb 23, 2006 Version: 0.2.0 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 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!
