    Hi, I've been using MediaPortal 1 for many years on an HTPC with a graphics card,
    but since switching to a Dell Optiplex 5080 with Intel UHD630 Integrated graphics, I've had many problems!

    I previously raised issues with videos not playing after a refresh rate change in this thread;-
    Mepo1 crashes changing refresh rate using Intel Integrated graphics
    This was sorted by unticking "stop playback on removal of an audio renderer" in Mepo Startup settings.
    However I am still having big problems!

    Now the refresh rate changes and the video plays, but not always! and mostly without audio.
    There seems to be a problem with the renderer connecting to the Intel audio drivers,
    as LAV Audio does not appear in the task bar when the file plays without audio.

    I would very much appreciate some help.

    I have attached logs playing three video files at different refresh rates.
    The Desktop Refresh Rate = 60Hz
    Then I ran MePo Watchdog in Debug Mode;-

    Played Tucker vs Evil (23FPS) - ok with sound
    Played SuperNova (59FPS) - Video ok but no sound
    Played Dallas (50|FPS) - Mediaportal crashed.
    The Watchdog then crashed itself with error below (see pic).

    About your issue, it's related to Intel GPU and I know that I have tried to fix that when audio device is removed when refresh rate kick in because of Intel conception !
    But it seems that all scenario case didn't always works :(

    I can't reproduce the issue because I'm using Nvidia 1050 GPU, and when it happens for Intel, some driver was better, but it was a long time ago and now, surely recent driver has issue.

    MPC-HC, handle filter differently because it's C++ code and Mepo is C#.

    Appreciate your help fellas, I just want to get back to enjoying MePo as I did with my last HTPC which had a graphics card.

    I have tried both Dell & Intel drivers for the UHD630.

    What I don't understand is ... I can't be the only person using Mediaportal with Integrated graphics?

    Why are more people not complaining of this issue?

    Also, what caused the Watchdog itself to crash?

    Keep looking please -any help I can give you with more logs etc - just get in touch :)

    I'm not a guru on this, I use integrated graphics on 2 HTPCs, works everywhere with no problems.

    Hi @ajs, Is it UHD630? & do you use MadVr? (although this problem happens with EVR also)

    Great work and release!! Contrats to all involved developers :):D I installed MP1 initially, but didn’t get along with it. Many things were not intuitive, too frumpy and the gui had hardcoded dependencies to plug-ins, some buttons didn’t work even without a note due to that. Same for player controls, why do I see always play and pause...

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