I'm using MP 1.0 as a dedicated HTPC, with client and server on the same PC.
Everytime I resume after a stand-by I get a fault: MP crashed unexpectedly. Sometimes MP starts anyway, sometimes, typical after several stand-by/resumes, I have to close all these boxes and start MP manual.
Sometimes TV screen is black (2 out of ten) and sometimes there is no audio (1 out of ten) sometimes TV picture is stuttering. As it is now I can't use my HTPC as a recorder as I can't rely on it.
Problems are only with TV section, everything else, music, radio (stream), photo, video is working very well.
My TV-card is working perfectly in Hauppauge WinTV.
What can I do to make my HTPC working? I'm ready to give MP a last try.

Have a nice Easter holiday

    In the TVServer config\general, there is a setting to delay detection of TV CARD, this needs to be set to a minimum of 20 seconds (depends how fast your system is), you may have to experiment with this, its because the t500 is 2 usb tuners using a via usb controller, thats why the delay is needed :(

    Also whilst in the config, go to plugins\powerscheduler, enable "reinitiliaze service on wakeup.

    You should get no more crashes.

    This TVCard also works very nicely with latest svn.
