Thanks @CyberSimian! I delved deeper into this issue and especially the "Silent Stream Bug" you mentioned. I downloaded different pieces of software that claimed to do like you said: keeping the DA-convertors "alive" by sending a non-audible signal periodically. Turned out this was NOT the thing happening in my AV-receiver. While...

Update: With the "PowerScheduler forces system to go to standby when idle" option Windows goes to Standby mode even while EPG scan is running. (y) However, since I'm not only using my PC for MediaPortal, I'd like to leave Windows handling the power modes - respecting MediaPortal actions like watching TV or recording. I'd really...

Indeed. A big challenge. I had hoped it was a generic VFD in the iMON and that I could find a driver for just the display only. Alternatively if I could find the source code for the iMON driver and strip out the bits that don't apply to the VFD and re-compile it. It's all a bit beyond my ancient skills (I learnt to code Z80 machine...

Hi there, the rotation of the video depends on the renderer. I used EVR, joecrow MadVR. I installed MadVR and was able to see joecrow's results. The video 1080x1920.mp4 is played correctly, the video 1920x1080-mux.mp4 is not. It is rotated but the resolution is not correct. I've attached 6 screenshots, 3 with EVR and 3 with MadVR...

Pleased to say that I have solved this, and believe it or not, it was a fault with the recording pin control on the xml which had the knock on effect with the highlight, which only goes to show the sensitivity of the EPG xml.

I completely uninstalled MP1 and installed MP2. Audio is now good. I'm relieved, and I suppose a little glad to have been forced to make the switch, because I'm already liking MP2 more. But still, the original problem remains a frustrating mystery.

In gathering logs for my radio stream problem, I noticed that I had hundreds of ts_reader and ts_writer files - apparently a new one every time MP starts (which is every day at 5am). This has the look of some long forgotten debug effort. Any clue how to stop this as this point (other than command file delete before startup)? No...

The Microsoft Antimalware Service Executable got updated on July 9 (version 4.18.2106.6-0) and it seems to me that this update fixed the issue with MediaPortal. The CPU load of the antimalware service is near 0% even if the MediaPortal application is running.

Just about done! Most things are reinstated. A few issues with my Fanart, but I think that may be waiting for the scraper in FanartHandler to pick them up again from the old thumbs. Time will tell.

Evening everyone, Is anyone operating Windows 10 and the latest installation of Mediaportal with iMON Frontview working, in particular the display. I am not bothered about the remote as I successfully use FLIRC for that. The VFD display is critical to me, so I need to know if it is reliable, with no black displays etc, Many thanks RH

Hello again ... The HTPC, so the Power Scheduler, will wake up not to the correct time. So, if 20:15 is the beginning of the TV Recording, he has to record 8 Minutes pre and to wake up 7 minutes pre to do this. But je wake up at 20:15 and start to record after the installed 8 minutes ... . So the first 8 Minutes are lost! The times...
