I was checking out the Media Portal website for updates, and I found that the new Pre-Release is now available for download. I am going to be trying this software suite out myself, so I definately think it is worth looking at. I specifically like the way it looks, very professional. Some of the new features include:
- A faster MediaPortal start-up time – MediaPortal will now start-up at roughly 1/3 of the previous start-up time.
- My TV: Notify me – Mediaportal can now give you a visual notification when a program is about to start
- My Videos: IMDB actor info – When lookin up IMDB information the actor biography is now also available
- General: Remote – added native support for FireDTV and Hauppauge remote controls
- My TV: Automatic background EPG & MHW grabbing – MediaPortal will now grab the EPG data for the current transponder/multiplexers channels and automatically populate the TV Guide.
Worth taking a look at for all you Windows based PVR people out there.
