i seem to be have a whole lot of problems tonight.

using any of the titan skins, when i go into tv guide and pick a channel from there and wait for live tv to show, i hear sound then the tv doesnt show and i end up back at the tv guide with the live tv playing at the top for a few seconds and then it stops playing like a freeze, now at this point i still have the ability to manoeuvre hrough the menus, but slowly mepo freezes and i have to ctrl alt del to force a closure of mepo.
Ive tried this with plugins disabled and same story, but when i use default wide all seems to be working fine again.

    First thing: please configure your TV codecs. :)

    Here is the likely cause of the problem:
    [2013-05-17 22:48:53,447] [Log ] [MPMain ] [DEBUG] - TvPlugin:ViewChannelandCheckV2 Exception System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    Have you updated Titan using MPEI?

    Hmmm, I suspect that the TV on/off button is null due to running an outdated version of the Titan skin. That button has been changed from a togglebutton to a checkbutton. All togglebuttons should have been removed from MP in this release.

    So yeah... I think somehow your version of Titan is not up to date, because the version in the repository seems okay.

    thats odd because the skin updated twice yesterday (was there 2 updates as mine said there was ?) so whats my options as to how can i fix this without starting again?

    also all codecs are configured and using lav filters

    I have no idea about this.
    @joostzilla @ncoH @catavolt
    Some help would be appreciated. :)

    ...so whats my options as to how can i fix this without starting again?
    I'd say please do this first:
    1. Open Windows Explorer.
    2. Paste "c:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\Titan\" into the address bar.
    3. Open mytvhomeServer.xml in any text editor.
    4. Search for "<id>8</id>".
    5. Report: what is the value inside the <type> element for that <control>?
    6. If the value is not checkbutton, please try changing to checkbutton and retry.

    Note: even if this appears to solve the problem, we need to investigate why/how your skin is not properly up-to-date.


    ...also all codecs are configured and using lav filters
    Not trying to be picky, but this config is definitely missing according to your MediaPortal.xml (and it was also clear in the MediaPortal.log file). ;)
    Code:
      <section name="mytv">
    	<entry name="deinterlace">0</entry>
    	<entry name="autoturnontv">no</entry>
    	<entry name="autofullscreen">no</entry>

    	<entry name="continuousScrollGuide">yes</entry>

    	<entry name="allowarzoom149">yes</entry>
    	<entry name="allowarstretch">yes</entry>
    	<entry name="allowarnonlinear">yes</entry>
    	<entry name="allowarletterbox">yes</entry>
    	<entry name="filter0">undefined</entry>
    	<entry name="teletextHidden">no</entry>
    	<entry name="teletextTransparent">no</entry>
    	<entry name="teletextRemember">yes</entry>
    	<entry name="teletextMaxFontSize">100</entry>
    	<entry name="group">EveryDay</entry>
    	<entry name="channel">ITV HD</entry>
      </section>

    To be clear, videos and BD are configured... but TV is not.

    I think this is not about Titan Extended because this file is in the MP installation? Strange thing..

    So there is the problem! :)
    Your skin files are definitely not up to date.
    People that know more about skin versions and updates that were provided will need to take over from here. :)
