Hi Aluns. No, sad to say, but the last contact with DD was around 10-09-2020. Last reply was, "it could take a while". Last driver version which seems to work for me is 3.0.2.211. But I've got the impression with the latest driver, the image quality is a little better. So I hope there will be a new driver. So I think I will send...

This is how UAC works, the Media Portal itself runs under a user account, and the Configurator under an Administrator account/rights, the Administrator may not see your shared folders, especially if they are mapped to a drive letter (Because under his account, the shared folders were not mapped to the drive letter).

Merge multiple MKV files at once? I think you might as well try Joyoshare Video Joiner. Such a tool supports almost all media formats and it comes a lossless mode that can help you to merge an unlimited number of MKV files into one at once without quality loss.

This was it, essentially.

As far as I remember, the default setting in "TV Server Config" is for TV Server to try all tuners when the attempt to tune a channel fails. If you have a lot of tuners, this can give the appearance of MP becoming locked up when you try to view a channel that has moved. TV Server tries each tuner in turn. MP is not actually locked up...

Strange that the preview window used to work not too long ago especially that little to no development is being carried out in that area atm. It's been a long time but I think the reason I changed was that MP grabs the Freesat data and was a little patchy but EPG collector is capable of a full Sky grab and provides channel data and...

I have looked at your log files, and the "TsWriter.log" file shows continuity errors, which (I think) is pixelation by another name. But you knew that already. Unfortunately I am not a TV expert, and so I cannot identify the cause of the problem from the log file. The usual cause of pixelation is a signal that is of insufficient...
