    Since upgrading to 1.4pre (and continuing with 1.4 final), the playback of music (apparently randomly) stops from time to time. Sometimes after a few seconds, sometimes after hours. Not been successful to generate a logfile of this; at least in the error-logs nothing is shown. Anyone else experincing this issue?

    No problems here, and we really need logs before we can do something.

    I know, I'd provide some of I could...
    Noticed that also series playback is affected.

    Should be pretty easy: As soon as you encounter the issue, zip up your entire log folder and post it here. ;)

    Well, yes. I tried to produce more meaningful logs by using the watchdog and looking in the standard logfiles myself. But as this is not successful - you're right, this should be the first approach. Will do so after this happens again.

    You can set the log level to "Debug" in configuration. This will produce larger log files but usually not a big deal (at least for a while). If the issue occurs you have proper logs. Please also note the time stamp of the PC clock as to when this happens, otherwise it is hard to find the offending issue.

    Thanks, I have set it to that as a default option :)

    Ok, at about 19:48 or 19:47, looking an episode via MPTVSeries suddenly stopped, the episode was then marked as watched.
    Logs from both HTPC and server (multiseat wsetup) attached. Anyone sees an issue?

    I was having a problem with music playback stopping and I fixed it by turning off the new setting that was added in MediaPortal v1.4.0:
    General->Startup/Resume Settings->Stop playback on removal of an audio renderer

    My MediaPortal.log led me to try this after seeing:
    [2013-06-27 21:41:07,623] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - Main: The display is off
    [2013-06-27 21:41:08,223] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - GraphicContext: MP will render at 5 FPS, use animations = True
    [2013-06-27 21:41:10,032] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - Main: Audio Renderer AMD High Definition Audio Device removed
    [2013-06-27 21:41:10,038] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - g_Player.OnStopped()

    [2013-06-27 21:41:10,047] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - RadioRecorded:OnPlayRecordingBackStopped no recording found with filename http://audio-ch1-t1-1.pandora.com/access/...
    [2013-06-27 21:41:10,089] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - TvRecorded:OnPlayRecordingBackStopped Radio http://audio-ch1-t1-1.pandora.com/access/...
    [2013-06-27 21:41:10,477] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - Main: The display is on
    [2013-06-27 21:41:11,815] [Log ] [MPMain ] [INFO ] - Main: Audio Renderer AMD High Definition Audio Device connected

    The odd thing to me is that the display did NOT turn off. Music always stopped for me about 4 minutes or so after playing, whether that was via the Pandora plugin or standard audio playback. And the display never turned off, even though the log seemed to indicate that it did, causing the audio renderer to be removed and the new setting referenced above to stop playback.

    I was not aware of that option, thanks, I'll try that. MIght well be a solution, I was indeed havong some issues with my sound device (HDMI Handshake issues).
    But on the other hand, when this happens, Mediaportal will a) mark an episode as watched b) will not offer resume from stopping position. While the first is plugin related, the latter is not. SO, either this is not intentional behaviour or my problem is caused by something else.

    Will report back if the issue is solved with disabling that option,
