    I just did a wipe of MP on my server, & did a 1.0 w/SVN22162 install.

    There are new tabs for 'settings' & 'video proc/amp' for analogue cards in the server config. The options in both of these tabs were greyed out, even after clicking check on the fourth tab (quality control).

    I went ahead & did my cable TV scan, after which the two new tabs no longer had their contents greyed out. The video standard entry was properly populated to NTSC, but the 'frame rate' & 'size' entries were both populated as PAL. If it can detect that the input is NTSC, shouldn't it default the other settings to NTSC?

    I can't find a new field for this in SQL. Would this info have been stored per channel in SQL, or is it externally stored & everything is fine now that I've changed the setting to NTSC?

    Picture & scan logs attached.

    I noticed closed captions information is stripped from my recorded files and I think wrong NTSC settings could be the reason. What NTSC settings should be there for North American cable?
