    Channel hopping on DVB-S causes the 'unknown error' or 'no signal' error to pop up after a few changes.
    This does not seem to happen if I change to the DVB-T group and hop around there, once I change to the DVB-S channels I get the errors.
    Once I exit MP, stop and restart the TVService and test again, all works again until I try the above.

    At least following could cause such:

    • Bug in DVB-S card's drivers
    • Broken HW (I had that before my Floppy DVB-C card died)
    • Bug in TVE3 DirectShow graph handling (Manfred has fixed one resource leak few days ago, so please test with next available SVN build that if the issue is resolved with this change)

    The card is quite new so I hope it's ok!
    I'll try the SVN when it's available and see if there are any later drivers...

    Thanks for your help :)

    #EDIT 1#
    There were newer drivers for the card - testing now...

    #EDIT 2#
    New drivers are better (more stable) I'll test the SVN when available :D
