    [solved] MP 2.2 EPG Channel Numbers

    That would be the one! Thank you! Oddly it wouldn't take effect until I rebooted the computer. Not sure if it was the client or the server that needed the restart but after the reboot it all looks normal.

    [solved] MP 2.2 EPG Channel Numbers

    I just upgraded to MP 2.2 and have a small issue and am hoping you can tell me where I'm going wrong please. My channel numbers are normally set to mirror those of freesat, 101, 102, 103, 104 etc. Since upgrading, the EPG has reverted to 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 etc. and despite being correct in the...

    FLAC Audio playback, no player registered.

    I've successfully linked to my Media server and can see all my FLAC files, but when I try to play them MP2.1 pre2 tells me there's no player registered. I've been looking around and it seems I need to register another player. Is it as simple as installing something or am I missing a trick here...

    Show time slider whilst paused, fast forward and re-wind please.

    This is a repost in feature requests as I originally submitted it as a bug but it is intended behaviour. Love the new MP2.1 Pre2. I've actually switched from MP1! The time slider doesn't appear for remote control commands, "play", "pause", "rewind", "fast forward", "skip forward", "skip back"...

    MP2 - V2.1 Time slider appears when mouse moved but not for remote control commands

    Fair enough. Thank you both. I thought this was unintended behaviour as it's something that most players do, not just MP1. It's most handy when fast forwarding.I shall post in suggestions.

    MP2 - V2.1 Time slider appears when mouse moved but not for remote control commands

    Love the new MP2.1 Pre2. I've actually switched from MP1! The time slider doesn't appear for remote control commands, "play", "pause", "rewind", "fast forward", "skip forward", "skip back" etc. when watching live or recorded TV. It appears fine if I move the mouse. It also appears if I press...

    Spot on. Thank you very much. I'll reprogram my live tv button.

    [solved] Back to playing/live TV button in MP2.1?

    In MP1, I could press "Live TV" on my remote to get back to live tv if already playing but I'd gone to one of the other menus temporarily. I could also press "back" to retrace my steps back to full screen live. The same remote doesn't seem to do this in MP2. Have I missed something? Is there...

    TV Service Dying watching tv less than 5 minutes

    I can confirm that after a reboot, that has fixed the Schedules window in TV Server Configuration.

    Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I found this below in similar threads: TVSERVER service crashing constantly The result of the commands is below: C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.6\bin>mysql.exe -h localhost -u root -p Enter password: *********** Welcome to the MySQL...

    TV Service Dying watching tv less than 5 minutes

    Quite possibly. The UK Freesat and Freeview lineup changes every so often and I did update my channels about a month ago. Oddly I can get into Scheduled recordings in Media Portal, but everything looks as it should on channels I know have not changed. More oddly I can't see anything under...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    I'm sure you're quite right and I accept that. Perhaps it's a cultural difference but I would rather be told there's nothing more they can do than be simply ignored. I don't honestly think given that I've had the same symptoms in 2 different houses it's going to be the dish, cables or LNB...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    Thanks @porky996t I didn't see your post when I wrote my last reply. Unfortunately I don't think there's any way of resolving my issue. I'm sure it's not a MP issue. I think it could be interference but bearing in mind the steps taken above and the fact I don't have another machine to test the...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    I promised I would follow up. Unfortunately the issue remains unresolved. The channels on that specific transponder still drop out when you first tune to them, Turn to another channel and turn back again and it stays locked in for however long you want to watch. TBS after initially replying...

    TV Service Dying watching tv less than 5 minutes

    Would anyone please be able to shed any light on why my TV Service has suddenly started dieing 5 minutes into watching live tv today? The service is stopped. Logs attached. Thanks in advance.

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    For anyone who is interested, it's definitely not a MediaPortal issue. I'm talking with TBS support and they asked me to download and try their player, DVBDream. Here is a screenshot of the issue reproduced there. You can see the packet losses climbing. They're currently at 117000.

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    Ok, so the situation is much improved but I'm still getting the occasional dropout. Still within 10-30 seconds of tuning in. Oddly it will happen when I first start using the TV but then won't do it again for the rest of the evening.

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    That does seem to have done the trick @Owlsroost . I've not had a single dropout since moving the card to the bottom slot. Hopefully I'm not speaking too soon. Anyway around, if there are no further issues, I'll post back in about a week and let you know how I've got on. @mm1352000 I think you...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    Thank you Owlsroost. I'll try that later when my daughter has gone to bed. I've moved the card to the bottom PCIe port on the motherboard. Windows sees it in Device Manager but MP won't see it until I remove the old ones and re-add them. It doesn't see it as the same card when moved to another...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    Thanks Owlsroost. I wonder if you could be right. To be fair I haven't tried it in another PC/motherboard but I don't have another one to try it in. I wonder if work would let me borrow something.... I will certainly try another slot later though. I wonder if it's worth looking through the BIOS...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    Yes, its exactly as you say. Two cables, one to each tuner on the card. Both tuners exhibit the same symptoms. Fair enough. I don't know to what extent he explored the problem and it wasn't followed up. The last poster in that thread seems to be suffering a similar issue also. I'll keep poking...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    Right, I have slept on it. I got to that point where I couldn't think straight. Yes, indeed, I have a straight path from the dish LNBs to the tuner card. No switches, splitters or anything else to complicate matters. What I did was disconnect the dish cables from the PC and connect them to the...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    Whilst I'm thinking about it, ITV HD is still timeshifting fine. Fair enough re. the signal values. What I can say is both tuners read the same. I have excluded those processes in case it will make a difference. Right, so we're looking at the signal. This is helpful. Let's see if I can break...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    Thank you for your quick and detailed response. Interesting. I figured as much about the codec response. What's peculiar is the way it simply dies and does not recover as you may see with a poor signal. Let me expand on your points to see if that helps... I guess it could be a signal strength...

    BBC One HD freezes intermittently, watching or recording.

    I have an odd problem with MediaPortal 1.15 when watching FreeSat HD, it has done this with every version I've ever had. SD channels are fine. HD channels like ITV, Channel 4 and FIVE are fine. BBC HD channels however seem to crash intermittently. They start watching fine, then begin to break...

    LAV and bitstreaming not working...

    Fair, I only mentioned it because the wiki pages told me everything I needed except that tidbit. I would probably put something at the top of the pages linked below, something along the lines of: Although MediaPortal config is applied to all users, the LAV Audio Configuration is set for only...

    LAV and bitstreaming not working...

    Confirmed! My "MediaCentre" user did indeed still have the default LAV config and once given admin rights, was able to enter the LAV Config, ticked the bitstreaming options and all is now working as it should. Anyone mind if this little piece of info is put in the wiki? It would have saved me...

    LAV and bitstreaming not working...

    Here you go, there are 2 attached. You prompted me to look and purely by chance I used a different administrator account. My config was gone. Print screen it and then logged back on as michael for comparison. My config is still there. It appears that the LAV filters config is stored in the...

    LAV and bitstreaming not working...

    Hi all, I'm fairly new to MediaPortal so am just getting my head around it. I used Win MediaCentre for years, not brilliant but it worked. Along came Windows 10 and forced me to move. Struggled with reliability of MP 1.12 and Windows 10. Restored back to Windows 8.1. Anyway, having got most...
