TV-Server Version: 1.10.0 (just upgraded from 1.7.1)
MediaPortal Version: As above
MediaPortal Skin: Titan
Windows Version: Windows 7
CPU Type: AMD Athlon II X2 240e
HDD: 500 mb
Memory: 4gb
Motherboard: Asus M4A785D-M PRO
Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 4200
Video Card Driver: 8.970.100.7000
Sound Card: Onboard
1. TV Card: Blackgold DVB-T2
1. TV Card Type: DVB-T
1. TV Card Driver: 8.1.0.0

I just tried using the TV service for the first time in several months, but got an "Unknown error has occurred" a few seconds after selecting a TV channel in MP (I was running MP 1.7.1 hotfix). I then tried opening Windows Media Centre and it seemed to have no problems accessing the tuner, so it seems that there's no problem with the tuner hardware. I tried going into TV Config and re-scanned the channels (it seemed to find plenty), but still got the "unknown error" whenever I selected a channel (after stopping and starting the TV service)

I decided to take the opportunity to upgrade to MP 1.10, so stopped the TV Service, downloaded and performed the ugrade, then tried to use the TV service again, This time I was unable to turn the TV tuner on at all - clicking on the "TV On" button just beeps and doesn't do anything. I've attached logs from the TV service.

Any ideas??

    Hello itm

    The log files don't show any problems... but they're also incomplete (no MediaPortal logs or settings) and don't show any tune attempts.
    Please use the watchdog tool with option 1 or 2 to reproduce the problem:
    http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_MEDIAPORTAL_1/16_Support/3_Forums/2_Log_Files

    Use the watchdog to start MP.
    Try to start TV a few times.
    Close MP.
    Attach the zip file that the watchdog creates.

    Thanks,
    mm

    Thanks :)

    You're trying to turn TV on without having selected a channel. That won't work. Select a channel from either the full or mini-guide.

    Doh! The upgrade wiped my channels and I hadn't noticed (is that expected behaviour?). Anyway I can now access the TV channels - many thanks for your help.

    So after a long search and a lot of experiments I did find out the culprit: I did disable events of the Common Information Model Object Manager. As soon as they are disabled TV server will always show "port 554 is already bound". Enabling/disabling events is done by this reg key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM]...

    The TBS 6281 DVB T/T2 is a dual tuner without CAM capability it should work on both DVBT and DVBT2 as it seems it did in WMC according to the OP. I do not see why it should not work with MP, I am using its successor the TBS 6281-SE which works well with both MP1 and MP2 but I only have OTA DVBT2, no DVBT any more. Which version of MP...

    I'm now using the Digital Devices Cine S2 V7A. I had 2 blue screens when recording + network load (DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION with NSIS und tcpip.sys in stacktrace) but that seamed related to my network card: after installing the driver from the mainboard website, it runs stable. I'm still surprised that the power delivered by the PCIe...

    Is this a correct connection? The name from the Server PC is "MediaPortal-Server" and from the Client PC is "Wohnzimmer-Client". And this is a screenshot from the ServiceMonitor from the Server. This looks very confused to me. I thought the the System always must be "MediaPortal-Server". It always takes some time until the...
