    Ever since i installed MP 1.6 the Windows 8.1 lock screen pops up when i play video/tv.
    This always happens after a specific idle timeout. It seems that whenever MediaPortal is playing video/tv it is counted as being idle. Anybody else have this same issue?

    I can supply more information through logs but i can't seem to find any specifics myself.
    I only know that this happened after i installed MediaPortal 1.6 (previously running 1.5 without this issue)

    Yes, I have same bug.
    MediaPortal 1.6.0 and Windows 8.1.
    On old MediaPortal (1.2.3) all was fine.
    I can't disable timeout. Maybe it is some workaround?

    I've never seen this and my HTPC has a password (but that's also in registry...)

    You guys don't happen to have the screensaver option 'On resume, display logon screen' ticket, right?
