    Since installing MP final I have crashes when tuning to some radio stations. I did no rescan of my DVB-S TV and radio stations but it was working at least with RC2.

    Example stations are Europe2 or

    -I just open MP,
    -go to radio,
    -select the station
    and MP closes without further notice.

    I also don't get a error.log. Attached are all the logs from such a crash and my radio database.

    If something was wrong with the data MP should at least _not_ crash. Can anyone find a error in the DVB-S station data or maybe confirm this issue?

    The crash just happend with a TV station also (Motors TV). I was testing with EPG via DVB-S and suddenly MP crashed without error log. This happend when trying to get EPG data for this channel. I opened MP again and tried to tune into this channel and it crashed. This is reproducible and happens always when tuning that channels.

    Here's the log snippet:

    Attached are the logs and my complete channel-list. Am I wrong when I say (again): MP should not crash without at least writing an error-log/exception/anything? I'll try rescanning all channels, maybe its a problem with the tuning details? Anything more I can do to test it or find the cause of the problem?

    I've rescanned channels and will see if it helps. While testing I got some logs with many lines of "wait for pmt :-1". Searched a bit and found this thread where someone had this, fixed his DVB-S station settings and the problems where gone.

    Will do some further investigations.

    Since rescanning channels I didn't had any more problems with such crashes.

    I compared the channel export of the mentioned Motors TV and the following lines are different:

    Attached are the exports of the working (after re-scanning) and crashing (before) channels.

    What I did not do yet is to try and reproduce this. Will try to do so after christmas.
