Synopsis:
I use Mediaportal on my Desktop PC and the video out from the videocard connected to the TV. Everything works OK. Mediaportal is shown in a window on my desktop PC and the contents of the Mediaportal client area is shown on the TV filling the screen. However when I turn My TV on, the picture is shown in Medioportal only. On my TV set it is shown as a black rectangle. The videocard is set to Clone mode and overlay on the secondary (TV) display. How can I get the output of the WinTV tuner to fill the black rectangle on the TV. I think it has something to do with VMR9 but how do I set it? What should the settings of my videocard be?

BTW: My thanks to all developers of Mediaportal, it is a great package!

Thanks for the answer, but when I do that I get a black image on my monitor and the TV.
There must be something else that I forgot to set. Maybe the Direct3D settings? Some setting for the videocard?

I just noticed that when I put it on VMR9 renderless, TV On is deselected and I cannot turn it on. Only the user interface freezes for a split second.

I dived into the DirectShow filter stuff and came across GraphEdit. When I put the renderer to Overlay in MP and startup GraphEdit, I can see the DirectShow filter graph. (Rather complex) When I put the renderer to VMR9 in MP, I am not able to display the filter graph in GraphEdit. So I guess that MP is not able to create a DirectShow filter graph. Anyone knows how to solve this problem?

    Hi,

    if the graph building by MP does not work, you should see it in the logs.

    /Team Media Portal/MediaPortal/logs/
    mediaportal.log
    capture.log
    error.log

    I made the following logs:

    - with OVERLAY selected: The monitor shows MP in a window with a video image; On the TV-set I see alternating MP in full screen and the video image in full screen. It looks like both are competing for the overlay.

    - with VMR9 renderless: The monitor shows MP in a window without a video image; I cannot select TV On. TV shows a black screen.

    Who can make something from the logfiles? How can I solve the error?

    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. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

    Hi mm1352000, first thanks for your lightning fast reply. Of course this is not an issue of Mediaportal. Sorry if this somehow sounded like that. I just wanted to check, if someone has made similar experience and possibly found a solution/driver that works. But the chances that a similar configuration is in use is pretty low, I...
