    What was the procedure installing.
    I have 2 installations - the x86 with TVServer/Client and the x64 with TVServer/Client.
    I suppose the x64 uses the x86 TVServer ;)
    Did you use "BackupSettings" plugin?
    I never use that - I have some batch files to backup complete MP (incl. all files in ProgramData) ;)

    You have x86 and x64 TV Server on the same machine?
    Is there two instances of the TV service running in windows services?
    Can you preview a channel in both TV server configurations?

    I have done a upgrade install of MP x64 "MediaPortalSetup_x64_1.31.000_2023-06-01-17-43" over the "MediaPortalSetup_x64_1.31.000_2023-05-26-22-09" install.
    And a clean install of "MediaPortalSetup_x64_1.31.000_2023-06-01-17-43" after total uninstall of MP x64 and MP x86 along with deleting all MP folders.
    Both worked fine.

    I'll have to try installing alongside the existing x86 TV server tomorrow.
    I wonder if I could remove the x86 tv server after installing the x64 TV server.

    @TLD :
    May be it's not clear enough.
    There is ONLY one TV Server, it's the same for both 32 and 64 bits, only directory change (if any).
    Don't install 2 TVService, it will cause problem.
    ajs already explained that the installer will install only if there are no other TV Engine installed.
    If a day, X64 client will be validated (need more testers, please), we will see if it's interesting/needed/useful to create a TV Engine X64.
    Hope it's more clear. ;)

    BTW, good work, good tests, THX !!! :) (y)

    All can be done, if you have enough resources...
    Maybe less resources would be needed (or could be borrowed) to interface to TV Mosaic given it has already been done for MP 2 than to create an x64 TV Engine from the long out of of date existing x86 version currently in use?

    I think it's completely the opposite.
