    Hi,

    I realized the following and possibly principal issue in MP. I have one S2 TV card and one standard (dual) SD TV card.

    When a preprogrammed recording is about to start I am not sure which card will actually be selected for the recording. If the S2 card is used, watching HD channels parallel to the ongoing recording is obviously not possible. Is there any mechanism which card is chosen or is it arbitrary, depending which one is available at a given time?

    Regards, HTPC_Sourcer

    Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

    Thank you for the reply. It looks like a codec mess. the LAV audio decoder / playback has a -350 delay on the audio on one set of channels and is +150 on the others lol. Thats so strange!

    Alright, here comes the update. I did a new recording of a HD stream and watched it on the client without MCEbuddy used. Worked fine, no stutter. Then ran MCEBuddy and it also worked fine :-) That puzzled me a bit. So I checked the TV cards for discontinuities, but there were none. Actually - to whatever reason - a couple of recent...

    Dear Morpheus_xx, I still assume that the issue is not due to hardware problems. In the beginning of my search I thought, I would need to dig into the registry, but eventually found out that GraphStudio can in principle also change the merit of decoders. As a first step I attempted to alter the Microsoft DTV-DVD A/V Decoders, but...
