    not recording

    Looks like I found a workaround and it looks like it may be related to that signal potentially being missing. If I try to record the current program it does not start, if I then edit that schedule (even if I change nothing) it then starts. I'll look towards the MP plugin for Kodi

    not recording

    I do write code and were hoping to get some info on that one point (the change event) rather than having to download and look through the code, but if that's what i have to do.

    not recording

    what is that signal, is there some way I can manually raise it and see if it does anything? probably more something the plugin developer should be doing but if I can find a workaround it still helps me a bit (and could show them the issue if that's it). is all this sort of stuff documented...

    not recording

    I might create a Kodi schedule and install the media portal GUI to create a schedule and see what the difference is in the database. if I (from mediaportal) select to record a program that is already partway through, is there any signal to start immediately or it just gets written to the...

    and that mediaportal is able to repair its self automatically if the schedule is set further into the furture, and that KODI is tricking mediaportal so it can't doesn't realise when the date is the 2nd of the the month the first of the month has already past.

    not recording

    no, the recordings that worked were earlier. I have tried to record the current program I were watching tonight and it failed to start, as I thought it would, recording the current program never works any more. I deleted the schedule so I'll see if some other things record tomorrow. I have to...

    not recording

    I saw the schedule listed in the media portal TV server setup before I restarted, so while it was not working. I were looking for that, to see if kodi had even scheduled it in the first place, but as I could see it there doesn't that mean it was successfully scheduled? and yes, your right with...

    not recording

    channel GO! 9:10PM - 11:40PM Sunday 6/7/2017 Jupiter Ascending I did see it listed in the schedules in the TV server setup it seem to happen more when there is not long between setting the schedule and the start time, there was probably about half an hour in this case, it seems to work a...

    not recording

    set a schedule, the time come up and nothing happens, no recording. other recordings have happened today. there were no tuners in use and at least one capable of receiving this channel. I were low on disk space but resolved that before the recording was scheduled. looks like this issue was never...

    not sleeping, recording never finish, recordings not starting

    did you perhaps report that you had created that batch file? I think it may have been your post that inspired me to create my version of the starter batch file. I have a loop that continuously (with a delay) tries to start sql express and TV service if the are not already running. the...

    not sleeping, recording never finish, recordings not starting

    I already have upgraded the motherboard/processor to try to make things faster, but hopefully I can put an SSD in one day. it is already sql server 2016 I don't have any particularly good reasons not to swap to MySQL, just like mssql (for no particular reason) I guess I'll just work around it...

    not sleeping, recording never finish, recordings not starting

    OK, I have spent a day reinstalling mediaportal with a new install of sql server express using a new database, rebuilt my channels and rescheduled my recording and so fat it hasn't missed any and is turning off however today after a restart MP did not start by its self, again I had to manually...

    not sleeping, recording never finish, recordings not starting

    Since last time I now have a new motherboard & processor (so the bios issue should not be a factor) and new operating system (windows 10). I weren’t sure if I had reinstalled sql server or not but I did that shortly after posting and it seemed to be better at turning off but again tonight MP...

    not sleeping, recording never finish, recordings not starting

    my machine never sleeps anymore. I think it is because recordings aren't working properly (what's new) it looks like a recording (play school) from 9:30 am toll 10:00am is still active, still going now, at 6:15 pm. not sure what the hold up was before that but it didn't turn off last night...

    never ending recording

    from what I have read "The platform firmware has corrupted memory" sounds like it may be quite common and a bios issue, so as I don't think there are or are likely to ever be any updated for that board I'd need a new motherboard to fix that.

    never ending recording

    I wonder if reinstalling sql express would help?

    never ending recording

    another never ending recording, the end time of the recording came and went (The Search for Santa Paws) and the recording never stoped, not the first time I've seen this. tried to restart the TV service but as per normal it will not stop, and can't be killed with task manager as is also not unusual.

    just a standard daily server crash, again.

    blank screen

    I sometimes get a message some like "there are still some installation operations pending, restart media portal now?" I thought it may have been related to the auto update setting in the attached screenshot. yes, it took me a week to find the time to post. I've got many other sets of logs from...

    blank screen

    MP did some sort of update then I could no longer get a picture (live TV). by changing codecs I got it to work (several black screens and one green screen. today I lost video again without any for of updates (always with sound still playing) but restarting the PC fixed it, though tit may be...

    Black screen, SQL fail and no DVD

    I think the black screen was immediately before I collected the logs and the DVD was maybe an hour before. don't remember exactly when the SQL thing was but hopefully there is something showing a windows restart, I believe it restarted due to windows updates

    Black screen, SQL fail and no DVD

    a few of the issues should be shown here: could not play DVDs, pressing on the DVD item from the main menu just return to the main menu, restarting the client fixes it. This happens often. black screen when turning on TV. the TV was fine but then we changed channel and afterwards could only get...

    mediaportal hangs on resume from s3

    your not alone, same here, fortunately I'm not getting it much now but it is a problem at times. I have written an autohotkey script to kill MP when it goes into a "not responding" state for too long (about 15 or 20 seconds I think). mostly aimed at the random freezes because you tried to do the...

    chirp and low volume

    I'll try to check that, I suspect I may be getting some noise from outside the PC, there is one slightly noisy fan and I can hear the speed change when the heater cuts in or out (its cold here at the moment). would have thought it would be all regulated to a nice even 12V but I guess not so much.

    chirp and low volume

    Yes, I agree the TV is an unusual setup, see here: http://www.opticomm.net.au/index.php/helpful-info/for-a-resident/frequently-asked-questions and see the question Do I need an antenna on my roof to receive a Television signal?

    chirp and low volume

    I were sure I'd already fixed this, guess not. fixed now and it did improve my channel change times (no wonder it didn't seem to help much before(when I thought I changed it but obviously didn't)) its not the chirps that are the issue, it is that the program does not resume properly, the volume...

    chirp and low volume

    I think it is new since 1.11 but often shortly after I turn the TV on it will chirp like a bad signal (even though sometimes the signal is 100% strength and quality) and then continue with a much lower audio volume from then on, quite annoying.

    Slow startup (splashscreen showing loading plugins)

    sitting on starting plugins for over 30 seconds a lot of the time is normal for MP isn't it?

    Volume bug again

    OK, thanks will try Cyberlink. I have set the logs to debug but the issue doesn't show up all the time so it may be a while till I can get more logs. Yes, if I close mediaportal (the client, no need to restart the service) the volume works as expected. I can have a look at the windows audio...

    Volume bug again

    the audio setup is the motherboard built in sound card connected to the speakers via the speaker out connection (not spdif). I'll have to go looking for the brand/model if that's important attached is my choices, is ATI MPEG video decoder a better choice? I thought the ATI ones used the GPU and...

    Volume bug again

    hasn't happened much for a while but I finally managed to get some logs, taken in a failed state where the volume does not work. using the volume control shows the OSD for the volume bar getting bigger/smaller but nothing else happens, the sound does not actually get louder.

    Recording/EPG issue

    I were about to post on what is probably the same issue, this clear up what is going on a fair bit (though it points out how badly broken it is). I frequently schedule recording then later when the time comes the red dot is mysteriously gone, as far as I know they don't record but is sounds like...

    cannot tune one set of channels

    I now switched back to stop but haven't restarted the server yet so I'll see how that goes. BTW here is a screenshot showing that the tuner can in fact tune channel nine, and shows the scheduled time shifting.

    cannot tune one set of channels

    all of a sudden my setup has sopped receiving any channel 9 based channel. there should be various attempts in the log file. I retuned (did the scan thing in the card in TV server setup) and now it works, that would be fine but this isn't the first time it has happened, how do I stop it breaking...

    various issues today

    Thanks, glad something useful was still there. I have changed the setting described as it was not checked and I would have turned off the PC with the power button on the remote, it goes to away mode if recording but I guess breaks stuff if just doing an EPG update. I also found an option to...

    various issues today

    this morning I turned on my TV and this is what I got: tried to start live TV (from the EPG page) and MP locked up, so I killed it and restarted the client all sorts of crazy flickering started going on, thinking back perhaps I managed to get 2 copies of the client to run at once so I tried to...

    proper blue-ray support

    any idea on how far along it is, any chance of it being done enough to be put in any time soon?
