Disable the service in services, if 2k3 has services

I had to do the same thing, I tried mediaportal 1 the other day. It did nothing but crash, and it needed SQL server. It left 3 of the SQL services in services. I had to go thru the registry to remove them.

I could have disabled the services, but why have it when nothing else uses it

Or uninstall it, if you havent yet

Mediaportal 1 running great here :thumbs: and have been for about two years now!
Just installed a web server plugin so I can set recordings from the internet :cool:

I think 1 just came out the final not a beta or rc version

I dont know if its because Im using a PCI normal tuner, instead of a digital tuner.

Altho, it worked previously when I installed it a few yrs ago. With the same tuner
