    - What I did change in the time from were recordings got weird were my routers and repeaters. But as the server is recording onto local ssd this shouldn‘t be a problem? All other network devices are working fine. But I am recording to a network folder onto my server (e.g. //server/recordings/). Maybe I should change this to „C:/recordings“? Could this be helpful to try to exclude network stuff from possible problems?

    Yes...

    Now it starts to get weird: two test recordings of each around 3 hours went well with recordings folder set to C:\Recordings and the usage of the adjustable damper. But: if I watch these rcordings and jump forward the timing is wrong; it roughly doubles the jump time. If I use +1hour it jumps 2 hours forward. Havent had the chance to collect logs. Would this be helpful at all?

    Ok, this jumping error was related to @Sebastiii's fix in Area51 related to Win10-Black Screen. So Problem ruled out. But today I had the Problems again. So it is definately not signal related. I now try @mm1352000 TVE3.5 test to see if this brings any advantage. After that I will try to wipe complete TVE-Install and start from scratch. If problems then still exist I guess I have to buy a new TV-Card...

    TVE3.5 running for two hours now without any flaw...letting it run now for a few hours...could be coincidence too

    Same discontinuities with TVE3.5. Full logs attached, in case anyone is still reading ;-)

    Get a lots of "2018-03-10 14:25:49.114 recorder: PID 5119 unsignaled discontinuity, value = 0, previous = 9, expected = 10, count = 908, signal quality, descrambling, or HDD load problem?"

    This logs suggests Problems I think I ruled out...

    Thank you for performing this test, and confirming @joecrow 's suspicion as to the cause of the problem. In principle the same problem exists with other EPG sources, such as the broadcast EPG that I use with DVB-T/T2. When a programme first appears in the EPG (7 days ahead of its broadcast time), some programmes have a generic...

    I think that this is a different exception to the others that have been reported. This is what happened: I woke the system from hibernation. From the Windows 7 desktop, I pressed the START button on the remote control to start MP 1.25f. On the MP splash screen, the "Starting TV Server" text appeared unexpectedly. After a long wait...

    Having used MP1 since 15 years, these epg related problems occuring after a fresh install stumble me. Needed to change a system hdd and decided it was time for a clean install anyway. Other hardware (C2D, 8 Gb ram, no tv cards - IP only) unchanged. Was running an earlier Win10 version with MP 1.24 which had been updated for years...

    Hi all, I haven’t had a good look into this yet but I have a suspicion of what’s going on so I thought I would I'll describe here to see if anyone else has had this experience. I think its a bit of an obscure case, but basically a few days ago the HD on which I save my TV recordings had a meltdown (physical drive problems). I...

    interesting...i use DRR in MP + Win 7, though i must admit i haven't watch much content lately using DRR. Might explain why i seen it more rarely than OP... i'll try some more testing using DRR, i usually switch between 50Hz p, for 25fps (dvb-t FTA ) content to 23.976 Hz for 23.976fps content, then back to 50Hz...
