Buying MediaPortal from e-bay

Unfortunately there are numerous people out there making profit from MediaPortal by selling it on e-bay.
The unfortunate reality is that we cannot stop them. Under the GNU General Public Licence anyone can sell MediaPortal for whatever fee they wish.
General practice in this area is to usually charge enough to cover the cost and or some profit to donate to the source project to help development.
What is dissapointing is that these people selling MediaPortal never seem to 'donate' any funds or for that matter ask us if they can sell the product.

What you can do to help...

Commerical Software Encoder

We have recently added support for CyberLink & InterVideo Encoders for TV cards who do not ship with encoders or decent ones (i.e. Pinnacle).

You can get these encoders with popular applications such as CyberLink PowerCinema, PowerEncoder etc. The InterVideo titles would be Home Theatre, WinDVR, iVideoToGo etc.

This enables more users to use thier TV cards with MediaPortal provided they have a decent processor (See my news item on the 5th of February).

So to get your card supported please let me know via email that the card requires a Commerical Encoders then follow the instructions here...

If you wish for more commercial software encodres to be supported send me the information of the application and a web link to download a trial etc.

MediaPortal 0.2.0 Release News

Just wanted to let you know we are going to release MediaPortal 0.2.0 on the 18th of March. Although we initially planned to have a new recording engine in this release and hence the major version change the team ran into some problems and so it has been deferred.
A new recording engine is still on the roadmap however we'll continue to use DVR-MS until futher notice. The primary objectives over the next few weeks will be a Core speed-up, GUI Wizard tidy-up, My Music - push to play & to fix all those nasty bugs you'll help us find between now and then.

About The Project

The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

Support MediaPortal!

The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
