My TV disappeared (1 Viewer)

I'm new here so greetings, and please be gentle.

I Downloaded Mediaportal about a week ago, and have been very impressed, I got everything working bar a few niggles which I am happy to work through over time.

But then for no apparent reason, the "My TV" button has simply disappeared from the selections I can make when running MediaPortal.

Everything else still seems to work; I can watch videos, DVDs, photos, MP3s but just not live TV. Nothing relevant was changed to my knowledge.

I have checked that the TV Server is actually running (in services.msc) as well as SQL Express 2005.

Logs are attached from MediaPortal. Please help, especially grateful if this is a FAQ which I have tried to look for but not found.

Not sure why no-one replied, but just to follow up my own post, I eventually got it working by a full uninstall and reinstall of Mediaportal, TV Server, and SQL Server.

Sledgehammer to crack a nut, and all that!

I'm a very happy new user now.

Now to find some plugins to play with...
