    ok, So i hope that this makes sense.



    when i am looking at ANY text on screen in mediaportal, it flickers and disapperars. various different sections, random lines, words or characters will flicker on and off randomly.

    This happens when I use TITAN SKIN and STREAMEDMP Skin, but NOT when i use BLUEWIDE.

    I have included logs for when this happens And When it does not. I hope someone can help,

    thanks in advance, Phil.

    It's seems related to XP and 1.4.0, i have post in a forum thread a exe/dll that improve the area, i have just find that on XP some init of graphics card didn't work correctly.

    If you can try it (i didn't look where is that files), try search and if you don't find it, i will try to find it on my side :)
    Thanks for logs :p

    Ok no idea :(
    Most of dev are on win7/win8 so it will be hard to fix it except if it happen also on win7.

    Did you try to run MP in debug mode (watchdog) ?
