    Hi All,

    Since i've installed 1.1.0 BETA1 I have mediaportal crash regulary.

    It seems that there goes something wrong when i'm recording two channels (or record one and start viewing another). The recording seems to go well but after stopping and trying to view, usually one of the both recording makes mediaportal crash.

    Also the recorded file seems to be corrupt in some way since mediaplayer only plays sound, no video. VLC plays it but gives no time information... always 0:00. So it seems this file got currupt.

    Probably mediaportal crashes due to this because everytime i try play the file MP crashes.

    I've also seen it happen when recording one channel and start viewing on another.

    "Luckily" i'm able to reproduce :

    - Start recording on one channel (via tvguide, not tested manual)
    - start recording on second channel (via tvguide, not tested manual)
    - wait until recordings are finished or stop them manually
    - try to start recorded shows. One of them crashes MP.

    Before the crash I get a black screen, lot of HD activity and then the famous Microsoft dialog with the "Send Details" button :(

    What i've tried:

    - Play with decoder settings, ffdshow, MPC => no difference.
    - Reinstall codec pack (K-Lite full latest) => no difference
    - Disable one of the two tuners in Tvserver cfg. => recording and playback goes well \\
    - Play files (.ts) with another player (VLC, MediaPlayer) => crashes or only sound. VLC = both sound and video. but no time info

    Hope this helps.

    It seems related to this report

    I've attached log files.

    Hi Chuvke

    It sound like the same issue (except i have 2 x PVR150's). I will check when I get home tonite, what happened with last nite's recordings, after I re-installed TV Server & recreated the TV Database.

    I have also disabled the firewall to see whether that could be causing the issue.

    Hi there,

    I think I have the same problem as you guys, but I only record 1 channel.
    I discovered that when I start/stop a recording manually, I can watch the recorded program with no problem.
    The problem is with the shows that I programmed to record automatically (let's say a movie during the day when I'm at work). When I try to watch a scheduled recording, it crashes with the black blank screen just before.

    Also, I tried to watch the file with Windows Media player an I have the same issue. It crashes. I wonder if it is a problem with the filter ? But what troubles me is that I can watch manually recorded shows...

    Can you confirm that the problem is only with scheduled recordings on your side ?

    I hope we can figure out this soon !
