Hi Guys

I have just spend the past 48 hours trying to do i complete reinstall of my main Media centre and upon trying the new MP 1.0.1.0 i have a rather annoying issue, every 8 seconds my skin will freeze for about 1.5 seconds, i have this fault on both the Blue3wide skin and StreamedMP ver .440,

strange thing is i have had this issue on both Win XP pro and Vista 32bit, (i tried a reinstall of XP as a test) watching the CPU i notice that while MP is responding correctly mediaportal.exe uses about 60% CPU and then during the freeze Mediaportal.exe actually drops to 0% (and no other process is using all the CPU cycles) its more or less all idle i have tried multiple ati driver versions and CCC both installed and not installed all to no avail

Also the freeze does NOT effect video playback or sound at all, it is purely a freeze within the skin .

just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this or knows of a solution, i really want to upgrade to the latest release to take advantage of the skin performance gains and other features.

But unfortunatly i have had to go back to MP1.0.0.0 final with SVN 21527 as this is the version i was using,

Any help would be much appreciated

Mickyblue :D

    Well im please im not the only one with this issue it was driving me nuts.

    any devs got any ideas on what it might be,

    unfortunately i cant get any log files as since this is my main Media centre i had to go back to an earlier version that works, but would love to try and get this resolved so i can move forward

    Had this yesterday when I upgraded from 1.0 to 1.0.1.0. Annoyed the hell out of me. Realised after upgrade I didnt enter the DB password for TV Server. Once I did this, it worked perfectly. Dont know if its related but it hasnt come back

    I think i found. Freezes exists if radio or tv plugins enabled and tv server unreacheble(freezes was a tvserver reconnection attempts). if disable that plugins or set right tvserver settings freezes gone for me.

    Thanks for the replies guys, am in the middle of watching "Australia" at the moment on the media centre so will have to try this tomorrow, makes sense as i hadnt entered the DB password for the tv server client yet as my server was offline at the time

    will keep you updated :D

    I had the exact same problem, but I started TV-Server config and entered the DB password and now it is working like a charm!
