When trying MP2 native TV service the ASTC tuning didn't work correctly. Installed fresh copy of MP2 without MP1 TV service, and found tuning parameters not set correctly. Installed MP1 TV service on same server without having to modify anything and all channels tuned OK.

If I manually set the tuning parameters and check the FTA box the channels do seem to work correctly.

    Thanks for the logfiles!

    I wanted to take a look into this, but for now the list of changes in TsWriter/TvLibrary are too long to dig into properly...

    What could help us:
    Can you delete the MP2TVE.sdf again, start MP2-Server, do a new channel scan? I would need full tswriter.log (this one is still logged under MP1 folder :confused:) and a full MP2-Server.log?

    Edit: after looking in the MP2-Server.log I can see that the channels are detected correctly be TsWriter, so issue could be inside C# TvLibrary.

    Would you help with a remote debugging session?

    I'll try and help anyway I can. How does the remote debugging session work.

    I'm assuming we may have trouble finding time we are both online. I am only at home online between usually 5:30 PM and 9:30 PM Eastern standard time. I've never done remote debugging, but am willing to help anyway I can or I can try and pull any other logs or testing you need done.

    I checked your TV database: the tuning details seem to be correctly stored.

    What I am wondering about is the logfile, the graph building seems to build an analogue graph?! Can you post logfiles of MP1 so that I can compare the graph building?

    First it tries to find matching cards: it sees two ATSC cards, but due to "fta=false" they won't be considered:

    Then it tries to build an "analog" graph:

    I compared the different parsing code of MP1 and TVE35. I think I found a small error which caused a wrong byte offset interpretation.

    Please try the attached TsWriter.ax, it must be placed into C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\Plugins\SlimTv.Service\TsWriter.ax

    Best is to delete the existing .sdf and start with new scan. Let me know the results, also the TsWriter.log from MP1 folder

    I replaced with the above TsWriter and it definitely helped. I had most of the channels show up correctly. The names still didn't come up however, and I also can't seem to get the analog channels to scan in MP2. I just went back and double checked to make sure MP1 TV service scanned the analog channels and it did.

    I'll try and post the new .sdf and TsWriter.log file. Would the MP1 TV DB file help? Where is that located and I can post as well.

    Here are some more logs I pulled this morning. I'm not sure where the MP1 database is located and if that would help to compare to the new MP2 database I have attached. If it would let me know and I can upload that as well. As you can see from the new screenshot some of the channels are green now and do start without having to edit information. The names don't show up the same as with MP1 TV service not sure that really matters though.

    I'm not sure if you are having any trouble separating MP1 from MP2 data logs or anything I'm not sure which ones are which for logging information.

    As I stated in post above I can't get any analog channels to scan even though it works OK in MP1 TV service. MP2 try's to scan and stops after first scan, whereas MP1 scan and adds around 70 channels which all work fine.

    FYI. I did verify the remote client was able to stream service not sure why it didn't work the first time.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I'm working on the missing names now, but my intended fix is probably wrong, so it needs more investigation.

    There are still some issues to resolve, some specific for analogue tuning and also general things like supporting different logfiles for TsWriter/TsReader, depending on the hosting application (MP1/MP2).

    Regarding the multiseat support: I saw an exception "error starting streaming server" in one of your older logfiles. This is most probably the cause why multiseat is not working.

    If you need any more files just let me know or when you're ready to test an update I'll be happy to give it a try.

    Thanks for all the help on this. I really hope to get back into some MP2 skin/plugins over this summer....

    Well, that was easy, thanks a lot :) (unfortunately, this did not solve the initial problem, for some reason MediaPortal cannot tune into a few channels which work using a different live-TV program, but I'll try to elaborate a bit further and then post in a different thread)

    Hi Guys, A long time since I last posted. I have just changed over to MP2 after using MP1 since 2008 and on tuning the Terrestrial TV channels I could only get about half the current number of channels from my transmitter, Winter Hill. So I checked on the forum and found the latest Tuning Parameters .XML file (here), and copied and...

    Hi, must be really a while, cuz I can not remember any post from you ;) But might be also that I joined the team too late. Yes, there will be many things. Main reason is simply, that MP2 is not developed based on MP1. I for example never used MP1. I tried it lately to test voice control and was shocked about many inconsistancies in...

    To keep from uninstalling the WinTV 10 Tuner, I'll just use MP1's (manual control) & stop the TV server. This way both programs can be used. So far no-problems with stop & start MP1's TV server, when trying to use WinTV 10 tv screen.

    So after a long search and a lot of experiments I did find out the culprit: I did disable events of the Common Information Model Object Manager. As soon as they are disabled TV server will always show "port 554 is already bound". Enabling/disabling events is done by this reg key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WBEM\CIMOM]...
