Ray: according to Chemelli the API used in his MediaPortal pligin is strictly linked with the DriveCore. So if we want to remove the DriverCore dependence, he will need the SDK for the new driver. Is it possible to do it?

As I understand, current MediaPortal plugin still requires drivercore, so I have to keep it until Chemelli updates his plugin.

Please fix the wake up problem, otherwise I have to keep my PC running all the time. :-?

First of all, I can confirm my display no longer locks when left idle for a long time - thank you for this fix! I tried to experiment more with the wake problem. I was able to wake the display by disabling and enabling the Generic USB Hub where the GX is attached to. But, of course, this is just a t...

I also have this problem and would like some workaround. Restarting drivercore does not help.

Look for Tools\GXDefaults.exe inside gx3-25-feb.zip.

Does your display wake up from sleep mode?

Reversed back to original configuration and upgraded the driver only and LibDriverCoreClient.dll. Drivercore did not complain and minidisplay MP plugin did not complain. As I understand, applications can talk to the driver directly or through drivercore, correct? By the way, new blinking Matrix Orbi...

Thanks, Ray for the new soft. We have been waiting for this update for very long time! :-) I am currently on Windows 7, ultimate 64bit. I uninstalled drivercore software/service and the old driver. When the device manager found GX, I pointed it to your new driver, it is live now. Since I use it with...

Although I don't like the traybar approach (I still don't understand why can't you just make a direct configuration program), I stay legal and I use your traybar to enable/disable options.

As you can see from the attached picture, lcdinfo is still running.

Ray: It seems I narrowed down the condition when the service jumps high - it happens when nothing is enabled in Displays tab in GX Management Console. When I select Media Center or Clock or CPU Load, the CPU usage goes down to the minimum 00-01. I am not sure now what was my lowest CPU with nothing ...

DriverCoreSvc.exe at 50% CPU usage

From time to time my system becomes slower then usual, I check and see why: DriverCoreSvc.exe is at about 50% CPU usage. Tried to restart the service - comes back to 47-50% again.

Any ideas?

I know for many users and programmers XP still stays and will stay choice #1 operating system until something better comes up. I personally struggled with Vista for a long time trying to make it do things I like to do, but then switched to XP. Henry: do you use 32 or 64 bit XP? what remote control s...

Windows XP Professional X64 and remote control

Hi Ray: I am testing MediaPortal multimedia application. The program very flexible and very promising. And with your help the latest version 1.0.2 works with GX right out of the box! I am thinking now about switching to XP X64, but I was surprised that Microsoft didn't write X64 drivers for the Micr...

There is an interesting conversation going on here: http://forum.team-mediaportal.com/support-119/mini-display-plugin-48132/index29.html Ray: can you help MediaPortal community so we could use GX with MediaPortal? Obviously, we need the driver compiled against the "standard" log4net.dll in order to ...

Ray: RF signal should not be a problem. You can connect a small external antenna or even a $1 RF patch cable to your capture card and record the air signal, even static signal without anything will work for testing. Same for the radio. Alternatively I could send you a few short dvr-ms files if you d...
