    Hi,

    I am not quite sure if this is a MP or a video drivers issue. Maybe a developer can tell from the attached log files.



    This is what is nagging me:

    1) I need to pause a video that I am watching in MP.
    2) While the video is paused, I switch to a TV channel in my TV device (TOSHIBA) , ie. I tell the TV to no longer display the HDMI input, but a normal aerial TV channel.
    3) When later I switch back to the HDMI input on the TV, instead of the paused MP video, I only get a black screen on the TV.

    On the laptop's display I get the black display, too. The only way to get MP back is to launch the Task Manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC), kill the MP process and restart it.

    As this is the first support thread I open, I attach two log files. The first ones were gathered with a normal MP start and the second with a debug start. I do not know if this makes any difference.

    Can anybody help me?

    EDIT: logs added.

    Regards,
    Fran

    Maybe something with MP's builtin screensaver?
    Was it enabled or disabled?

    Also what version of MP are you using?

    Hi,

    I get the same behavior with or without the MP's screensaver active.

    I am using MediaPortal SVN-Snapshot:-01-08-2010 02-15h - Revision:24669.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I do not think it is a screensaver, nor a standby problem. I get a black screen, but the system is still running, since I can see the mouse pointer

    It seems more like the issue is related to MP not been able to be displayed on the TV device.
