    Hello folks,

    I recently suffered from the Avast issue discussed at [solved] - tv tuner Stopped getting signal
    Before realising what the issue was, I rolled MP back to a dev version if 1.15 to see if it was a 1.16 issue. Now the problem has been solved, I have upgraded it back to 1.16, but now it is acting very strangely;
    It crashes when I am just switching between pages, eg TV guide to Recorded TV
    It seems to be using a lot of memory, usually around 2GB
    Neither MP Extensions page of MpeInstaller show any installed plugins, despite the fact that Moving Pictures, TV Programmes and Online Videos are available and working in MP



    I have tried reinstalling 1.16 again, but it remains the same. I have attached the logs in the hope that somebody can tell me what is wrong, or how best to solve it (backup settings and do a clean install?).

    Thanks mm1352000 for the quick diagnosis.
    Excuse my ignorance, but do I need to do the repair on just FanartHandler.db3 or all the db3 files ?

    As far as I can see from the previous log files, only the FanartHandler database is corrupted. Therefore you only need to repair or delete FanartHandler.db3.

    Fanart Handler version is 4.0.1.195
    I would advise you to update the plugin to the current version FanartHandler 4.0.2.246.

    I have now tried repairing FanartHandler.db3 - SQLite found nothing amiss after following the instructions that mm1352000 linkied to; deleting FanartHandler.db3, which has now been rebuilt by the plugin, and updating to FanartHandler 4.0.2.246 as ajs suggested.
    Memory usuage has deropped right down to around 200MB, and I haven't had any crashes yet. The only minor niggle is that MpeInstaller is only showing FanartHandler and 3 other of ajs's associated plugins as being installed. Do you have any suggestions for fixing this, or should I just reinstall all the plugins, that I can remember?
