    Hello,

    Generally speaking please do not ask questions within files but place everything into the thread. You can also upload screenshot files directly rather than using Word, see the upload button.

    I am a little bit uncertain as to what you want to achieve. You have successfully searched channels (and hopefully mapped them to each of your tuners). However, you only show radio channels, not the more important TV channels. Did you map those to? About TV Configuration: "Testing" is a stress test where all channels are subsequently tuned. Use "Preview" If you want to verify that an individual TV channel is functional.

    The next step is to launch MP2.

    Logs please. Run the Log Collector on your desktop and upload the zip. It is possible that instead of a zip a folder is created on your desktop, in which case the zip is in the folder.

    Thanks for the logs.

    Simple explanation is that your TV channels are not mapped. You remember that I asked you if you were sure that your channels are mapped? ;)

    Please go to "TV Channel | TV Mapping" and map all channels in the left pane for each (!) tuner by moving them to the right pane.

    When I first started using MP, I found it difficult to understand what "Map Channels" does and how to use it. If you are not sure how to use it, simply perform "scan channels" for each tuner in turn. Remember to select your country and transmitter before performing each scan (otherwise the scan won't find any channels).

    Repeating "scan channels" for each tuner in turn has these advantages:

    (1) You don't need to figure out how to use "Map Channels".

    (2) It automatically handles tuners for different systems (e.g. DVB-T and DVB-S).

    (3) It automatically handles tuners with different capabilities (e.g. DVB-T and DVB-T2). My HTPC is like this -- I have one tuner card that receives both DVB-T and DVB-T2, but I have two other tuner cards that receive only DVB-T.

    (4) It automatically handles tuner cards with different performance (e.g. tuners with high sensitivity and tuners with low sensitivity). My HTPC is like this -- the DVB-T2 tuner card can receive more DVB-T channels than the DVB-T tuner card (because the DVB-T2 tuner card is more sensitive).

    (5) It checks that each tuner is working correctly and receiving a signal (e.g. it checks that you have not forgotten to plug in the aerial cable).

    I sincerely apologise. I saved all screen dumps and comments into a word document.
    I tried to Cut and paste into the reply, but after 3 hours work all the screen dumps just disappeared and the resultant "mess" left me in tears.
    So I just attached the document file as an upload. However the log files are there !! The resultant failure may be apparent to you.
    I tried to explain the poor resultants of testing. I tried to include a minor improvement to the scanning display.

    Advice will be very acceptable !!
