After a short break away from Mediaportal, I installed MP1.27 and have the TV Server on a different computer to the client.

I have set it up as best as I can, but I am having issues with playing live TV, it will allow me to select a channel but won't show more than a single frame of the live TV before stopping. I've attached a log file if someone can suggest what I can do to resolve the TV issue.

Since I was getting nowhere with the TV Server on a separate computer, I uninstalled Mediaportal from all computers on my network and installed Mediaportal 1.27 on my main computer as a single seat set up. I am now able to get live TV working reliably but I am not able to playback any recordings whether it is from the Recorded TV in the TV section or from a folder location in Videos, but I am able to play the files outside of Mediaportal in VLC.

Any help would be truly appreciated.

Kevin

    Hi @kbfcub ,
    First: caution! I'm no expert ;)
    After a short break away from Mediaportal, I installed MP1.27
    What was the last version you've been using? If you have not done so far, I would suggest to make a CLEAN Installation (MP & TV-Server) on server & client...

    Hi @joEhSuper, thank you for looking at my log files , I will heed your advice and completely remove it all and re-install MP1.27.

    I had on a previous computer I ran 1.24, which was decommissioned a couple of months ago and decided to install the latest MP2 version as seperate client and server when I ran into issues I uninstalled it all then just installed MP1.27 on my new computer.

    I will remove it all again as you've advised and start a fresh and see if this helps :)

    Don't forget to delete the "Team MediaPortal" folder in Program Data and it might also be a good idea to uninstall MySQL and delete its folders in Program Files and Program Data.

    Hi @joecrow,

    Thank you, I did uninstall MYSQL, LAV and deleted the respective folders in ProgramData, then re-installed MP1.27 and hurrah I've set up the TV side of things and live TV and recordings are working.

    Thank you and @joEhSuper for your help, I really do appreciate it, now I just need to set up all the plugins again :)

    Hi CyberSimian I've tried not using WebEPG at all for a few days and can confirm what you said: that broadcast EPG retrieves 7 days at a time in the UK by default. I have had no issues at all using DVB EPG this way, retrieving the EPG when the system is idle.. I think I am going to stick with doing things this way and expect...

    Hi, just a quick piece of information: In my server/client setup, I had one client with very annoying Live TV behavior. TV would start alright, but after some random time, it would freeze. I could restart TV most of the time by stopping and restarting it, but of course, there were some seconds lost of the running show. Today, I...

    P.S. - Strangely, the TV Server my single seat setup (1.27 on a modest machine running Windows 10 Pro x64) is working from my office machine MP client. Same exact network, firewall, Defender settings. It's a slightly older version of Win 10 though - I haven't updated to 20Hx on it yet. Maybe I shouldn't (or maybe I should image it...
