    Im gonna try that 5+ seconds tune setting

    I've tried to setup the 5 till 10 seconds tune setting, but still "Bag Signal" in logs, and in Tvserver-setup "No Signal"

    With alfa and beta i've got error logs with:
    LockedInOnSignal could not lock onto channel - no signal or bad signal

    With 1.02 there is no problem at all..
    Using DVB-S2 (Firedtv) as test machine.

    I can bypass this problem, by stopping LiveTV; and afterwards zap to another channel.
    When i directly zap to another channel (on another freq.) i get:

    Nothing change with the file and on 11-06-2009 19-18h - Revision:24047.rar.

    Only QAM256 SD+HD channels still work, all QAM64&256 channels works only with an old 1.0.2 channellist.
    Terratec 1200 and HTC HD, Twinhan, Technisat.

    only QAM256 works with DVB-C, no QAM64 after channel scan.

    QAM64 channels work only with import file from channel scan with MP1.02.

    First of all i don't have a dvb-c card so dunno if this could solve your issue but for me & my pinnacle & terratec dvb-t cards & win 7 this solved it.

    In TV-Server Configuration -> TV Servers "your server name" & highlight your tuner card & click on edit, down on the popup page try to change "network provider" from generic(if it is that) to dvbc, then save & restart & test....

    Please have a look at this post by me post in latest SVN forum, problem appeared after upgrade to SVN and rescanning of channels. Possibly related?


    Since the install of the this SVN I experience a very strange problem with the TV-part of MP. I have DVB-C provided by ComHem (Sweden) and use the TerraTec H7 USB reciever.

    My problem: If I enable my CAM non of the free to air channels are working (unable to start graph) but all of the encrypted ones work fine. If I disable the CAM in the TV-server configuration all the free to air programs work fine but of course none of the encoded ones

    I can add that both scrambled and unscrambled programs work fine with the TerraTec software.

    Attaching logs only from the TV-server (as I can reproduce the outcome with preview in TV-server not using the rest of MP). The working files are with CAM disabled and the non-working files are with CAM enabled.

    Any ideas?


    Yes, I have ticked the box "free to air" in the channel configuration. I am not sure about the significans of the colour-marking when looking at the channel list but the FTA chanels have a green marking witch I think indicates FTA (the non-FTA channels are marked in red).

    However, there might be something fishy going on here as they remain green (interpreted by me as FTA) even when i remove the FTA status of the channel (untick the box)?

    Apologies that my system specs are not in place yet (will fix when i get home) but hera are the generated logs:
