    I don't have a crash! Just black sreen and audio loop and MP hangs -> I must kill MP process.

    I gonna test again tonight, problem is that occurs after a while which could be long :)

    Crashed again, this time when I started playing a ripped DVD (Indiana Jones, ISO). Well, actually I only got to see the menu.

    Only log-file updated recently before crash, is MediaPortal.log which I have attached. Nothing spooky in it, maybe besides PowerScheduler changing state.

    But, on my laptop I haven't got PowerScheduler enabled, and this has also crashed a few times.

    1) was MSCORWKS.DLL shown in the error report?
    2) were you using dshowhelper.dll that is posted into this thread?

    If "no" to either one we are ignoring the report for now. Log doesn't give any info.

    Do you mean dshowhelper? I have been through the thread a few times to double check and I can only see fontengine.dll and tsreader attachments :confused:

    1. Yes
    2. I don't see a dshowhelper.dll, but something with subtitles?

    Not sure this will help but, I'm in and out of sleep constantly and I've never had it crash. Knock on wood.

    1) I always exit MediaPortal before putting my machine to sleep.
    2) I have very little mpeg2 content, and haven't played a single mpeg2 based file since I installed 1.1 RC1. But I will leave it running for many hours at a time as I play different H264 encoded TV. I'm in and out of files and skipping past opening credits constantly.

    If you guys can give me a scenario to try and reproduce on my h264 only content I'll try it.

    fontEngine.dll indeed (we have only internal new version of the dshowhelper.dll, few long nights with debugger have corrupted my own memory pretty badly...)

    I see in the bugtracker that the problem is now solved. I just wanted to report that I have not had a single crash since I replaced fontEngine.dll, and I used to have it at least once a day. Thank you for your hard work on this issue.

    I'm afraid I was too quick to praise the change :) I had a crash again. But since I guess there are more changes than fontEngine that makes up the solution mentioned in the bugtracker I will have to wait for RC2 I guess to make any conclusions to if the problem is totaly solved on my setup.

    Is there any chance of a "pre-release" for this issue alone?

    Just to metioned it the crash yesterday followed the usual symptoms and refered to the same dll. But the first row in the crash dump was not reffering to BEX but to mediaportal.exe. Don't know if that is important.

    No, separating the fixes from SVN would require some extra work and RC2 is not that far away from, please have a look in Mantis' roadmap.

    Please provide more information, since it sounds that the crash is a different issue.
