First of all. I am not sure about if this is a codec problem or what it is but here it goes:

1. Entered tv

2. Turned on a mpeg2 channel - works fine

3. Turned off tv

4. Turned on a H.264 channel - works fine

5. Turned off tv

6. Turned on a mpeg2 channel and switched to a H.264 channel - works fine

7. Switched from the H.264 channel back to the mpeg2 channel and the picture freezes but the sound swithes ok to the mpeg2 channel.

Is this not a bug?

This is with the latest ffdshow codec on both mpeg2 videocodec and H.264 codec inside MP configuration.

Now I tried tried to install Powerdvd and selected powerdvd as mpeg2 and H.264 codec and now the channelchange from H.264 to Mpeg2 works.

First I tried with the latest version of Powerdvd (PowerDVD9.1719a) but them I could not select powerdvd as H.264 codec.
Then i Tried to move down to version 9.1501D and now i could select powerdvd as H.264 codec.

But now there is a new problem....
When using Power dvd 9 codec for H.264 the picture starts to move slower (not out of sync) after under 1 minute and goes back to normal after under a minute again...

I wonder if anyone can see this in the logfiles..
