MY TV Crash (1 Viewer)

I wonder if anyone can help.

I'm using RC2 with a Twinhan MagicBox Pro.

Setup seemed pretty intuative, had to manually select the correct video codec before it would work but that was fairly obvious.

I seem to be encountering a problem when going from fullscreen TV back to the main TV menu. Basically when I hit escape Media Portal simply crashes to the desktop instead of going back to the TV menu.

Any ideas / solutions would be greatly welcomed.

    Try switching the Video Renderer for Television/Movies/DVD's in MediaPortal setup from VMR7 to VMR9, maybe that helps. Your hardware should be able to handle it.

    Kind regards,
