Media Portal is dropping audio on almost every channel change. Only way to restore it is to close Media Portal and restart. Everything else seems to be working well.

Log files attached - and I think I've captured the problem area below, but not sure where to go from here...

Just bumping hoping for some guidance... surely I'm not the only one with this issue... Wife ready to throw out the computer so if not for me - let's just try to save the poor HTPC!
