MediaPortal 1.17.0

MediaPortal is a Windows based Windows Media Center alternative and they have just released an update. 1.17.0 fixes issues with the MyVideos feature, improves the TV features and other fixes. This release is currently classed as a pre-release with the final build coming soon.

Here are the changes, more info and the download links on the MediaPortal site.

We fixed some bugs with video views, especially collections, user groups and libraries. We also added new properties to display icons of movie awards, extended MPAA text and movie awards text. Skinners now have the possibility to add badges for collections, user groups, new and actualized movies, watched/unwatched movies etc. as overlays in nearly all layouts like thumbnailpanel, filmstrip and coverflow. DefaultWideHD already shows some of the new functions.

The lists in TV Recordings now show the year of the recording, e.g. 12-03 2016 instead of only 12-03. We also added the functionality of moving or deleting channels from/to channel groups inside the GUI via context menu in TV EPG. We also fixed an issue that recording files were left open by the Streaming Server
