    TV Playback works fine on my tv server.

    Client is another story. I go to the client pc. Select a channel from the TV Guide. Click Enter and Mediaportal crashes.[DOUBLEPOST=1445541147][/DOUBLEPOST]I decided to reboot the client pc to see if that would fix it and it did. Hope this helps someone else. ;)

    I guess I spoke too soon. The problem has appeared again.

    I'd be happy to try to help. :)
    Please post fresh log files (Watchdog option 3 on the client) and specify the date/time when the problem occurred.

    Actually, looking at your older "Client Logs.zip" (which I previously thought wasn't collected with the watchdog - sorry should have checked)...

    The first port of call for debugging crashes in any Windows application is the Windows application event log. In your case it shows:

    Exception code c0000005 is an access violation exception. Quite common for memory related bugs.
    Note the faulting module name. That is typically the source of the problem. In this case it is nvd3dum.dll, which is part of the NVidia GPU driver. This is consistent with the fact that you reported the crashes occur when you try to view TV.

    In short: I reckon you have a problem with your GPU (video card) driver. Did you update it recently? If yes, that's the problem. If not, try updating it.

    I decided to check Windows Update to see if there was an update for my Nvidia card. There was so I updated it and all seems to be working now.

    The weird thing is that this same client pc had been working fine with that very card and drivers before I updated to 1.12. Since I was having some issues I downgraded back to 1.9 (clean install). That is when I started having the error. Anyways it's working now.
