Mediaportal: How to install mediaportal

If you (like i did) have an old PC which you do not use and at the same time need a mediacentre, why dont you give mediaportal a shot? It is open source, free and for windows.
Here goes:
  1. Download the latest version here .
  2. Launch the installer file.
  3. Choose your country.
  4. Choose "Start installation now".
  5. If there is ANY chance that you will be using mediaportal to either watch or record TV, answer yes to the question of whether you are going to use mediaportal to watch TV.
  6. Unless you know very well what you are doing (and if you are, you not reading this), choose install all in one click.
  7. If you are installing under Windows Vista or Windows 7, you will be asked which network the TV-server may communicate on. I have chosen only private networks and would recommend this setting.
  8. The setup is now done installing and you will be shown the MediaPortal Manual Documentation .
  9. You are now done installing MediaPortal - Have fun! (I will continue posting articles on how to setup things and features on this blog...)
