1.2.3 New install ... mp locks up when starting TV (1 Viewer)

My last HTPC went tits-up for some reason (my last post reported random freezes - the whole machine is doing it).

Clean-ish XP Sp3 I had MP on it as a client - added the TV card and Gfx card and expected to add the TV Server and be away.

I've ended up clean reinstalling MP 1.2.3. , intalling and uninstalling the Hauppauge components.
WinTV (Hauppauge app) works fine.
TV server grabs channels and EPG,and seems to stress test OK.
In MP, when I start TV nothing happens and MP just locks (task manager to quit)
Also, when using another client to watch TV streaming from this box, the same thing happens on the client box (also 1.2.3).

I've got some logs :)

At 8-28 on my client box, I tried to turn the TV on
Two minutes later I dumped out. These are the logs from the HTPC (the problem is the same here anyway),

    Hello mr_si

    You need to configure codecs in MP configuration:

    I suggest you use the MP extension installer to install the LAV codecs.
