Media Portal turns your PC in a very advanced Multi MediaCenter / HTPC.

MediaPortal gives you the possibility to listen to your favorite music & radio, watch your video's and DVD's, view, schedule and record live TV and much more

You get Media Portal for free/nothing/nada/noppes and best of all it is opensource. This means anyone can help developing Media Portal or tweak it for their own needs!

Note: MediaPortal now has an updated database version - SQLite v3. If you're migrating from version then please follow these instructions...

There is a small converter to migrate your database. Follow these steps:

1) Install MP (Do not start MP or Configuration.exe)
2) Enter the database directory
3) Make sure there are no *.db3 files there for the database files you wish to convert (database files where a *.db3 version exists will be skipped).
4) Enter the databaseconvert directory
5) Start the "convertv2v3.cmd" script, this will convert your existing database-files to a *.db3 version.

Start MediaPortal's 'Setup' as you'll need to add your TV cards again also.
