    Hi Devs!

    HD Channels doesn't work here with 1.1.0 beta! Its the same in MP or in preview! I have tried it with two different codecs (PowerDVD8 & CoreAVC)! Logs are attached!

    Same for me. Vista with CoreAVC/ffdshow/PowerDVD codecs. Can't watch channels (blank screen). Worked in the MP 1.1 alpha version.

    same here... i also have problems, playing TS files with HD content (recorded TV from another thread)... GraphEdit shows two different results. Playing the file outside MP, it shows everything fine. Running the file in MP, GraphEdit shows the filters, but they are not connected. Connecting them is not possible. Any chance to disable the inbuilt Subtitle thing (in tsreader.ax)?

    :D in advance

    Haali Media Splitter won't activate when running the file in MP (could this be a problem too)?

    Everybody: Please follow the guidelines for bug reporting

    How to start a support or bugreport thread:
    1. Choose a meaningful title for your thread.
    2. Report only one problem per thread.
    3. At the moment you start a new thread in the support forums, the hardwarespecification template will be added automatically. If the template is empty, then you have not filled out your specifications in the usercp yet.
      Note: Your report MUST include a complete hardwarespecification!
    4. Add a detailed, step by step description of your problem.
    5. If your problem occurs inside MediaPortal or the configuration program, then run the "MediaPortal Logs Collector" from your Windows Start Menu (Team MediaPortal/MediaPortal) and ATTACH the exported log.zip file to your thread/post.
      Without logs it is IMPOSSIBLE for us to help you!

      To create clean and conclusive logs you should use the "MediaPortal Debug" shortcut which will start MediaPortal in a special debug mode. Then you reproduce the issue and close MediaPortal. A log.zip will be created automatically which you then attach to your thread/post
      If you are using the TV-Server and it is installed on a different PC, then you have to attach its logs by hand.
      To do that open your Windows StartMenu and click at "TV-Server Logs Folder" in Team MediaPortal/TV-Server.
      Attach all these files to your thread/post.
    6. Do NOT copy/paste your logfiles (or large parts of them) in your post.
    Please note that support threads, which are missing the required information posted above will not be processed and maybe also deleted.

    Logs and system specs should always be added - just in case
