Hi there,

The last couple of days my MediaPortal is acting up. The usual statement: I didn't change anything :rolleyes: .
I perceived the first noticeable signs when I tried to switch from Music-Database-View to Folder-View and the listView was not showing any entries. Now, when I try to enter any Folder-View (Music, MyVideos) MP freezes. After killing MediaPortal.exe in the Task-Manager, the Window disappears, but the Process remains in the task-manager. Sometimes -after a couple of minutes- the process finally is completely gone and I can restart MP (but when entering MyVideos for instance it freezes again).

A couple of days ago during video-playback MediaPortal then exited without any error-messages. I was able to collect Logs from that incident, but since then the watchdog returned an error-message like this (and doesn't collect the logs):
MP_Error.JPG
(roughly translated to english : "unhandled exception in application", the file "...\tvserver_Gentle.config" already exists.)

I tried reinstalling MediaPortal, updated the graphics-card driver and started MP with an empty database-folder, but the problem persists. Occasionally though, at least myVideos is working.

I did delete the tvserver_Gentle.config and now at least the watchdog is working again. The second set of logs is from just now, where MP crashed and froze.

Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello

    Thanks for the log files. (y)

    I perceived the first noticeable signs...
    For this part I have no comment. I can't identify/see the problem happening in the log files. I suggest you reproduce the problem using Watchdog option 1 or 2 ("report a bug...") and provide the log files. That should show the problem more clearly.

    A couple of days ago during video-playback MediaPortal then exited without any error-messages. I was able to collect Logs from that incident...
    For this exit-without-error-message, it looks like your NVidia GPU driver was having problems. The Windows system log shows:

    I can only guess this is related to the new NVidia driver (v376.19) which seems to have been installed on 10 December (before this problem).

    The second set of logs is from just now, where MP crashed and froze.
    The Windows system event log shows the same messages as above:
    [collapse]
    "13.12.2016 15:15:24";"Display";"(0)";"Warning";"Der Anzeigetreiber "nvlddmkm" reagiert nicht mehr und wurde wiederhergestellt.";"4101"

    ...so again I can only assume this is related to your NVidia driver update.
    This time the MP log shows that MP stopped due to a problem with DirectX/D3D (the GPU):
    [collapse]
    [2016-12-13 15:15:41,803] [Error ] [MPMain ] [ERROR] - MediaPortal stopped due to an exception Fehler in der Anwendung. Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D bei Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.Device.EvictManagedResources()
    bei MediaPortal.D3D.RecreateSwapChain(Boolean useBackup)
    bei MediaPortal.D3D.RecoverDevice()
    bei MediaPortalApp.OnProcess()
    bei MediaPortal.D3D.OnIdle(Object sender, EventArgs e)
    bei System.Windows.Forms.Application.ThreadContext.System.Windows.Forms.UnsafeNativeMethods.IMsoComponent.FDoIdle(Int32 grfidlef)
    bei System.Windows.Forms.Application.ComponentManager.System.Windows.Forms.UnsafeNativeMethods.IMsoComponentManager.FPushMessageLoop(IntPtr dwComponentID, Int32 reason, Int32 pvLoopData)
    bei System.Windows.Forms.Application.ThreadContext.RunMessageLoopInner(Int32 reason, ApplicationContext context)
    bei System.Windows.Forms.Application.ThreadContext.RunMessageLoop(Int32 reason, ApplicationContext context)
    bei System.Windows.Forms.Application.Run(Form mainForm)
    bei MediaPortalApp.Main(String[] args)[/collapse]

    So it really does look like a problem with the new GPU driver.

    Regards,
    mm

    In addition to this I had a problem recently too
    I did this:
    1. Disabled all plugins - added them i 3 at a time and tested
      I kept a .txt file of all the plugins I added at which point just to keep track
    2. Removed all the DBs and rescanned everything
      This took forever, but resolved my issue

    Thank you both for the responses.

    Weirdly, today there was no sign of the problems, everything works fine (for now). However, It looks as if MediaPortal is not the cause of the problems. There have been little glitches all over the place the past few days.

    Now that I had a little time to tackle this, I followed @SpudR 's advice and cleaned my system from the Video-card driver with DDU in safe mode and installed the latest driver. Since then no crashes or weird behaviour(y).
    It seems like everything is back to normal. Thanks again for the support.
