Hello!

I'm trying to access my TV-server over a VPN connection.
The EPG is working and when I try to watch a SD channel, the screen is just blank. In the task manager I can see network activity that is around 3Mbps witch is about what to expect from the SD channel i'm trying to watch.
Im using MePo 1.2.3 and a 250/250 Mbps fiber internet connection between server/client. Have some logs to.
Can anyone see whats wrong or maybe this setup is not supposed to work?

kind regards

    Yes so my most recent test was to try view a live channel. Then while Media Portal is locked up on the client, check netstat -an. This is when I did not see a 554 connection. Then I jumped on the server, could see the TV card is active, pulled the streaming URL out of the streaming log and then opened this on the client in VLC. (While...
