    Please try the attached TsReader.ax - it plays the test recording OK.
    (and of course everyone else from NZ with the problem channels should try it too )
    If the new TsReader.ax fixes the problem, I'd like to see some logs with a few channel changes between channels in the 'problem' mux, to get an idea of how long it takes to find the data it needs to re-start playback after each change.

    Of course if it doesn't fix the problems I'd like the logs anyway :)

    What value do you want us to use for the buffering, or does it not matter?

    Set buffering to 0 and tested with LAV and Cyberlink PDVD 10:
    1. Choice
    2. Sommet
    3. PRIME
    4. Firstlight
    5. TV ONE [off mux HD, just to double check]
    6. Maori
    Seemed greatly improved with both codecs. Logs attached.
    Thanks! (y)

    PS: <off-topic side question>Is there a particular reason why the slow motion zapping option remains as a debug setting and enabled by default?</off-topic side question>

    I've just managed a dozen or so seeks from a recording made last night without any hitches using the attached tsreader, so its looking good :) I've attatched the tsreader.log file showing the seeks, followed by a few channel changes to and from PRIME. Note that I currently have that registry setting set to 800ms.

    The problem with the streams is that sometimes there are quite large skews between the video and audio - from your 'LAV' logs after each zap :

    Code:
    [2013-10-25 09:06:27,453] [1f870048] [ 9d8] - Compensation : ( Rnd : 0 mS ) Audio pts ahead Video pts . Add 2.575 sec of extra video comp to start now !...

    [2013-10-25 09:07:54,375] [1f870048] [ 9d4] - Compensation : ( Rnd : 0 mS ) Audio pts ahead Video pts . Add 2.285 sec of extra video comp to start now !...
    The 'extra video comp' values are basically the V/A skew - note it's over 3.5 seconds sometimes, which was creating the playback problem because the old 'compensation' limit was 2 sec - I raised it to 5 sec in the test version. (It's limited to avoid corrupted streams etc. from possibly producing silly values).

    Re. the 'slow motion zapping option' - it's always been that way (and I quite like it, but I know some people don't) - personally I think all the 'debug' settings should be visible, or at least 'debug' mode should be a tick box in TV server config itself, not a 'launch' command line option.

    From Threarah's log - the spraed in 'compensation' (skew) values is quite large :

    ....I wonder if the stream muxing is quite 'lumpy' ?

    What is slow motion zapping and what is the alternative?! Couldn't find anything on the wiki during a quick search. If this is going to be to offtopic, please send me a pm with the answer :)

    Slow motion zapping is the thing that makes the video all jerky and slow for a second or so after you zap.
    It can be disabled (so video plays normally) by using a debug option in MP configuration.
    Run Configuration.exe with the /DebugOptions switch, then check under the TV section to find the debug options sub section. First setting is the slow motion zap setting.

    Thanks mm
    On my pc there is nothing jerky it just switches the channels like a normal tv, but I won't go off topic any further. Thanks for the answer :)
