    Since beta 1, I cannot watch TV anymore. A message pops up saying "Unable to play Stream2.0 - Audio Codec".

    Connecting to the TV server via LAN on the server seems to be ok: As soon as I start TV, the card is active.

    Logs are attached.

    Thx for a great product and your support.

    Seems like I have exactly the same problem.
    No time to check now, but hope someone have a solution.
    Just tested different codecs, but same error.
    Recording seems to work fine, and are playable in VLC at least.

    If u check "Additional 3rd party checks" what does the "Streaming port" says?

    I think its set to "0" in this built, so change it to default "554". It can bee done under "TV Servers" or "Streaming Server".

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, Tompa, this did the trick!

    Additional 3rd party checks said Port 0. After changing it to the standard port 554 in TV Server Configuration's Streaming Server menu item, everything works as expected.
