    I know there have been quite a few posts on this topic, but I could not find any that seemed to work. Anyway whenever I try to view TV channels all I get is "Connection to TV service lost." I looked at the logs (attached) and in the TV server logs it said

    Code (Text):
    1. 2011-11-04 21:35:13.780508 [TVService(6)]: Controller: sorry, master/slave server setups are not supported. Since there is already another server in the db, we exit here.
    2.  
    My tuner is a HDHomerun dual tuner. I can view channels with the QuickTV app that came with it.



    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It means you have installed a server/client and a standard installation.
    Probably if you do a full uninstall with the deployment tool and then reboot, it be fixed.
    When you run the setup make sure u choose the advanced option to install a dedicated tv-server.
    Then run the installer again and choose mediaportal tv client.
    This probably works better :)

    Thanks for the reply.

    I tried just uninstalling and re-installing and that did not work. I will try this and then report back this afternoon when I get home from work.

    Thanks again.

    it is best to do a full uninstall just in case some old stuff is still in ur pc , specially when there are program related errors.
    no problem.. happy to help out :)
