    The error indicates that at the time of testing your system had no audio output/renderer. Without an audio output, TV cannot work (because the audio path is critical for timing).
    Thanks! Will try again with receiver switched on when at home. This is why I added this note that I was only on vnc when testing!

    So, IMHO that problem has nothing to do with MadVR. I'd expect the same issues with standard versions of MP.
    As always, you were totally right! Worked with local access and receiver turned on. MP looses focus and Ambilight not working as reported here tho. And I have quite a lot dropped frames, but this is only a settings question in MadVR. Maybe I have to upgrade my onboard HD4000...

    Awesome that this is being worked on! Can't really test specific builds since I use the Custom Data Grabber ones but hopefully it'll be stable enough to move to the master branch soon.

    Hi Sebastii, sadly it had issues on my setup.

    First run, I went to the guide, fired up BBC1 and it worked. I pressed the guide button and MP went unresponsive. I had to ctrl/alt/del to recover.

    The second attempt, for logging purposes, went a little different. I went into TV guide as before, ran up BBC1 as before. When I pressed the guided button this time, it showed, all was fine. I changed channels a few times then during one, MP had a full on windows crash.

    Please find log attached. Don't give up!

    Ok that's not cool lol.
    Could you try movies or series (not TV) to see if it does the same ?
    Thanks.

    Finally got round to giving this a try, (the latest V2) but ran into big problems. When I tried TV in regular mode it inially played ok but on channel change I got audio with a b lack screen, a 3D mkv played but not in 3D and MP crashed on stop.The attached log was generated using option 1 of the watchdog, it covers an attempt to run a 3D .mkv(mvc), the video played but not in 3D and MP again crashed whjen I hit stop. I will check out the madvr settings and can try again tomorrow if you have any suggestions. Question:- I currently have Lav 0.67 installed and it was not updated with the new MP test install, I thought 0.68 was required?

    I would have thought that although awesome (and something I'd like too), 3d is another development step on from getting normal 2d to work in madVR. Any LAV would work in 2d but yeah I think you need to update it for 3d. I use the 'nightly' builds and they are surprisingly solid.

    Sebastii I have more testing time tomorrow. If you have any specific requests just PM me.

    It's very strange, but you can see that it happens. The logic of NSIS is a complete mystery. :)

    Thanks for that but it does seem to me that Madvr is the issue here, I guess it is not as robust as the EVR or does not get shut down as elegantly, I also suspect, though I have not tried it, that the result would be the same for playback of any video, i.e. not just TV. Given that German TV is now all transmitted as full HD, the need...
