    MediaPortal Version: 0.2.3.0 RC2 , SVN 16208

    reproduce:
    1- start "mediaportal configuration"
    2- expand "general"
    3.-select "volume settings"
    4.- now, select "Wave", instead of "master Volume"
    5.- Click "OK"

    -sometimes you can even see it switch back to "Master Volume" before the window is closed.

    Problem: "wave" channel cannot be selected.

    err, this happens on two computers here, my workstation, and , (as of today when I installed it in the living-room), it happens there as well.

    where is this setting stored, and how is it possible that I sometimes *SEE* it being changed back when I click "OK"
    (I assume clicking OK, simply dumped settings to the config file)

    Hi,
    It's in MediaPortal.xml -> Section name volume & Digital yes(wave)/no(Master volume).
    btw attach the configuration.log, maybe theres a error in it.

    Regards

    Code:
    <section name="volume">
        <entry name="digital">no</entry>
    yes, it works when I edit the file to "yes" - when I open config, it shows wave, as it should, as soon I click OK, it saves "NO" , and even visually changes the selecton before closing window.

    could you investigate what could cause this behavior ? - thank you.
    log attached.

    I confirm that by wasting all settings, and creating a new mediaportal.xml, the problem is gone..
    could we find the error that causes it ? -
    I assume it was a "update" that did not apply the changes correctly when updating ?

    attaching file that causes problem.

    new file (no problem):

    Code:
      <section name="volume">
        <entry name="handler">0</entry>
        <entry name="startupstyle">0</entry>
        <entry name="digital">yes</entry>
        <entry name="table">0, 1039, 1234, 1467, 1744, 2072, 2463,  2927,  3479,  4135,  4914,  5841, 6942,  8250,  9806, 11654, 13851, 16462, 19565, 23253, 27636, 32845, 39037, 46395, 55141, 65535</entry>
        <entry name="startuplevel">52428</entry>
        <entry name="defaultVolumeOSD">yes</entry>
      </section>
    Old file:

    Code:
    <section name="volume">
      <entry name="handler">0</entry> 
      <entry name="startupstyle">0</entry> 
      <entry name="digital">no</entry> 
      <entry name="table">0, 1039, 1234, 1467, 1744, 2072, 2463, 2927, 3479, 4135, 4914, 5841, 6942, 8250, 9806, 11654, 13851, 16462, 19565, 23253, 27636, 32845, 39037, 46395, 55141, 65535</entry> 
      <entry name="startuplevel">52428</entry> 
      <entry name="defaultVolumeOSD">yes</entry> 
      </section>

    at least the problem is not caused by this XML section.
    Please., load the config-file I attached, and try for yourself.

    Hi,
    Really not sure, usually when i have had errors in mediaportal.xml it is caused by some plugins i have tested, but those have always produced errors & the file was never saved fully.
    The "what" have caused it can be hard to find. Well since we now know there can be something with volume selection we can have a eye on it & maybe something else shows up on forum regarding this issue.

    Regards
    Roy

    the "--backup MediaPortal.xml" I attached above causes it, maybe you could just give it a run in debugging mode ? :)
    (if you'd see what could possibly change the selection before saving, you would have solved it)
    I have no bizzare plugins installed, 99% is the ones that are included with the installer.

    Hi,
    I'm seeing the same as you with your file, but dunno why it happens yet.
