I have a very fine working MP setup - however a few of my tv-channels are not working.

The problem is that when I tune to those channels I get a frozen picture and no sound. Sometimes the picture will play, but still there is no sound. This goes for the same four channels and I cannot find any common grunds between those four channels. Changing back to any other channel and MP plays just fine.

I have tried both tuning the channels in preview and starting manual timeshift in TV-server config screen. When starting manual timeshift the channels seem to tune just fine and no errors seem to ocure. Trying to preview in the channellist produce same result as inside MP.

Does anybody have a suggestion on where I could look for the problems, 'cause I have run out of ideas...

I will try making a set of logs and adding them to the post. Was just thinking that someone might have a suggestion that I had not thought of.

However I do not think it is a signal quality matter. I am using high quality signal cables and splitter. My cable provider has been out and measured my signal and it is in the higher end strengthwise. And finally I have tried adding a signal strengthener (I am not sure that is the right word for it but hopefully you know what I mean) and that did not change the behavior.

But as stated, I will make a set og logs later today and post them here.
