accessing MP from realVNC while viewing TV means crash (1 Viewer)

I have setup a realVNC server on my HTPC for remote management from the office computer. Dont want any keyboard/mouse in the livingroom ;-)

However, if MP is in tv viewing mode, the computer will do a full crach, only recovered by a hard power off.

MP v. 0.1.3

    So the PC is blue screening then? Can you get the error message?

    Ive got the same setup here and I have no problems, I schedule a lot of recordings using VNC.

    perhaps try UltraVNC

    I also run a VNC- server the same way as you do. No problems up to now.
    But I'm using UltraVNC. Perhaps try this.

    Interesting. I only got to test this tonight. Regular MP GUI worked fine. However, when I entered the tv while showing a tv picture, everything froze (no bluescreen however.).

    I will try to repeat the problem. Using my 802.11g network, any manouvering was really choppy (to be expected, I guess, as they comressing the computer inmage as pictures or something).
