[solved] Media Portal Crashes when Playing or tuning FM Radio (1 Viewer)

Hello. I'm running Media Portal 1.15 on Windows 10, with several Hauppage Tuner cards, (2) HVR-1600 and HVR-2250 to tune OTA ATSC TV and FM radio in Central Ohio. I'm using Media Portal as the backend and Kodi as my frontend. This has been working great for some time, and was working properly earlier this week. However just the last few days, I've found that while the TV Playback still works normally, FM Radio playback no longer works. Attempting to play FM Radio from Kodi causes the Media Portal TV service to stop. Trying to preview FM radio from TV-Server Configuration or trying to rescan FM Stations also causes TV Server service to stop or TV-Server Configuration to stop responding. I thought this may be related to the Windows 10 update as noted in several recent threads, so I Checked my Decoder settings. All Tabs are already set to LAV filters, but I reset them to LAV filters again to be sure. Still, this did not solve the problem. I downloaded the latest drivers from Hauppage, and I also installed Hauppauge's latest Win TV 8 Player. In Win TV 8 Broadcast TV and FM Radio scanning and playback work normally, so it seems these cards are still functional. I'm stumped at this point. Any Help is appreciated, logs are attached.

Well, thats really strange. I had an upload progress bar and everything last night. This should do it.

    Thanks, the log files are perfect. (y)

    The Windows application event log - which is always the first place to look when trying to determine the cause of a crash for any program - shows the following:
    "3/19/2017 6:54:14 PM";".NET Runtime";"(0)";"Error";"Application: TVService.exe
    Framework Version: v4.0.30319
    Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

    In short: the reference to CompPkgSup.DLL means that you're affected by the same issue as discussed in -->this thread<--.
    Microsoft acknowledged they had a bug in this recent update:

    ...and they've released a fix in the last 24 hours:

    Installing the fix should solve the problem.

    Kind regards,
