    Hi,

    just did a full clean up of both my TV sever and MP client (multi seat environment)
    Did a fresh install of TV server 1.0.2 and MP 1.0.2

    When starting TV, I see on TV server that stream is started. MP client however completely freezes (same for radio).
    I have tried special build of TsReader from earlier bugreport that was made by Ambass (due to slow system), but same issue.
    When starting graphedit I see that no graph is build.

    Logs attached.

    Hope somebody can help.

    btw the installer still references version 1.0.1 when installing (text in screens from advanced setup)

    thanks in advance,
    Ruud.

    Working workaround

    Found this as workaround.... from Gibman's 'avoid RTSP' thread:

    open "mediaportal.xml" and insert this new "usertsp" tag.

    <section name="tvservice">
    <entry name="usertsp">no</entry>

    optionally insert "recordingpath" and "timeshiftingpath" tags.
    <entry name="recordingpath">I:\DVB-Capture</entry>
    <entry name="timeshiftingpath">I:\DVB-Timeshifting</entry>

    Now both TV and Radio is working again......

    hope this helps pinpoint the real problem.

    regards,
    Ruud.

    solved

    Just did a complete cleanup off my system (again): had multiple instances installed of c++ redistributables (both 2005 (2 times) and 2008 (three times)???).
    Uninstalled using a tool that also cleans up registry afterwards uninstalling: MP uninstall leaves also entries behind when going for the full uninstall...

    Man, now I know why I love Ubuntu with its repository so much ;). MP is the only reason why I still use windows

    Anyway.... false alarm ;)

    This one can be closed....

    regards,
    Ruud

    YEAH.... which brings up a good question: I read where they'd gone to the C++ 2008, so do we still need 2005? Maybe I'm being simple, but do we? How'd you know you had multiple instances and what'd you do to clean them all up?

    Hi Andrew,

    when looking in the normal windows tools for adding and removing software there where only one of each, but when using a tool like 'your uninstaller' it showed up multiple times (probably all leftovers from previous install attempts / upgrades).

    Windows needs fresh reinstalling every once in a while, uninstalling an application not completely is a Windows challenge as long as I can recall and is bound to give (performance) problems sometime.

    Hope this helps,
    Ruud.
