    which version of MediaPortal?
    please also add the MediaPortal.log

    do you have the "separate gui render thread" enabled in configuration.exe -> general?

    Thanks for the reply's.

    Well I did not have the "separate gui render thread" enabled in configuration. I know I turned it off for some reason but I can not remember why. I read a thread where it said that it was best to turn it off when you want something to work, skin-related I think. Maybe I will fnd that thread again, I will look for it.

    So from what I can understand it is best to turn this on? It makes the GUI faster or am I wrong?

    A quick fix is to play a VMR9 video which clears the frame buffer

    Yep, that was the problem for me too...I enabled the option suggested by infinityloop. I will keep an eye on things and see if it happens again...
