    When starting previously recorded .mpg files, CPU utilization is going to 100%. 99% of it is MediaPortal. This will then stay for hours, if not stopped manually. I already tried different things. I used ffdshow, installed PowerDVD 7 and so on. Always the same. Some work, some don't. Don't see a difference in the mpg's.
    All of those .mpg's work fine with VLC player or PowerDVD 7. Interesting enough with Windows MediaPlayer they show the same utilization problem as with MPortal.
    Currently I am using PowerDVD7 for mpg audio and video.

    Didn't see any similar problem discussed anywhere. So I a hope this is because there is an easy solution available.

    I tested a view internal and external players. Non of the internal ones worked. All of the external did (Power DVD, VLC)

    MP is using 99% CPU and is running on the database. It doesn't stop if I don't kill the process.

    Can't believe I am the only one having this issue.

    Thanks for any idea
