    Hi all,

    I have this problem that I don't know how to get rid off. When I open the setup application and try to autotune my Hauppauge PVR500 card, everything works ok but the preview panel appears as an ActiveMovie window detached from the application form. I don't have this problem when viewing TV or movies in MediaPortal application, only in setup.

    Any tips?

    Thank you in advance,

    OK, I have found the bug in configuration application. Now I have tested it and it is working. The problem was that configuration uses Overlay with VMR7 always for autotuning independently of your configuration. This tool was not passing the correct window handle to the underlying infrastructure and that is why it was creating a new window. Well, now I have a patch with this fix plus some other fixes for Analog radio and TV autotuning. I will upload it to Sourceforge tracking system.

    Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk.

    Okay, no problem. At least we know that there was no problem with TV Server because the new CAM works. Marking thread as "no bug"...

    Dear Morpheus_xx, I still assume that the issue is not due to hardware problems. In the beginning of my search I thought, I would need to dig into the registry, but eventually found out that GraphStudio can in principle also change the merit of decoders. As a first step I attempted to alter the Microsoft DTV-DVD A/V Decoders, but...

    Sorry for the delay replying owlsroost, I personally didn't find any improvement - I ended up applying the recommended MPAR settings that were highlighted in this thread and putting the 1.15 MPAR OCX file back in place and all seems OK now for me.

    hi, just in case issue returns again, you may also try to reinstall LAV (simple install over, or deinstall+install again, you can also try downgrade and re-upgrade). i remebering that some filter-graphs sometimes hangs for a while after playback under some rare conditions, preventing next file to be played. regards.
