    Hi all,

    I have a long time running multiseat MediaPortal, with TVServer on separate computer.

    But since today, 'Manual Control' section doesn't works anymore on TVServer configuration. Nothing happen when I click on it and previous menu items are still on screen.
    I have noted this message in SetupTV.log (nothing in other files):

    [2018-12-16 18:37:41,017] [Log ] [SetupTv ] [ERROR] - Exception :confused:ystem.NullReferenceException: La référence d'objet n'est pas définie à une instance d'un objet.
    à SetupTv.Sections.TestService.comboBoxGroups_SelectedIndexChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e)
    à System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox.OnSelectedIndexChanged(EventArgs e)
    à System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox.set_SelectedIndex(Int32 value)
    à SetupTv.Sections.TestService.OnSectionActivated()
    à SetupTv.SetupTvSettingsForm.ActivateSection(SectionSettings section)

    (My server computer is Windows 7 French version)



    I have updated version from 1.19 to 1.20, but this not solve the issue.

    Aside from this error, TV client work well.

    Thanks if anyone can help...

    I'm seeing something similar.
    in 1.20 and 1.21 when I select Manual Control I set the heading change but the content remains whatever it was.
    I had been running for quite a while with out problems on 1.20 before this appeared changing to 1.21 didn't help.

    Check that you have an "All Channels" group for both TV and radio channels. If one or both are missing, recreate them.

    Have Channels and All Channels for tv never had an All Channels for radio. While I had tv channels, I have no radio channels.
    Used the configuration program to add an All Channels to the radio side. stopped and started the service.
    Still no manual control panel when I select manual control.

    Turns out any channel or group corruption will cause the manual control tab to not display without generating any visible error.
    There may be information in the log but I haven't found that yet either.
    In my case I had groupmap entries that did not have valid channels.
    Once I deleted the groupmap entries that didn't have a corresponding channel the manual control tab displayed and worked as it should.

    The problem can be recreated by simply adding a groupmap entry with a nonexistent idchannel like 88888 and then trying to access Manual Control.
    Deleting that entry will put things back to normal again.
