    13. no issues when zapping, all channels are working, never get a "no signal" or black|mute MyTV after that

    This is not permanent.
    If i restart the PC 10 times then 4 times MyTV is black|mute when entering MyTV the first time.

    Same if i resume/hibernate the PC 10 times. 4 out of 10 times MyTV is black|mute when entering MyTV the first time.

    since latest svn the black|mute MyTV issue is no also occuring during zapping.

    out of 10 zaps MyTV is 2x wroking and 8 times black|mute.
    The "No Signal" Message is NOT displayed.

    this is the graph during MyTV is black|mute.

    seems that the tuner gets correctly locked but noting gets rendered.
    the Audio/Video graph is missing

    Test1:
    tried a clean MediaPOrtal installation with latest svn.
    no old files or old database was used.

    got ~6 times black|mute out of 10 zaps in MyTV. NO "No Signal" Message displayed!
    Log-> View attachment 700

    Test2:
    tried to view teletext after MyTV is black|mute
    Log->View attachment 701

    I have tried to find a channel that does not broadcast teletext to see if this issue also happens when switching to channels with teletext or not.
    but it seems that nearly every channel has teletext :confused:

    But this issues have started exactly when the diseqc fixes have been done, so this seems to be related.

    can you confirm that when you change channels on different ts frequency zapping is ok?

    seems like tuner can't lock on same freq but different vpid/apid

    Hi,
    It seems I have similar problems.

    I can not put my finger on it but I need to restart MP after a few times zapping because I'll get the black screens (even without the normal few seconds "no signal detected" and the channel information). If I keep zapping it is very possible that at the end I get a picture again on some channel, maybe even a channel that was before black during zapping. It seems random which channels give the black picture and when. I have the time-shift off.

    If I switch on 'time-shift' the picture goes instantaneously black!

    I also noted that after playing some WMV's via the FILM menu it is not possible to start a next file. Also here I need to restart MP to be able to play any wmv again. I had this 2 times: 1 time after playing ~ 5 files and the other time after playing ~ 7 files.

    Maybe you have some use from my log files with quit some zapping and regular black screens.

    BTW I keep having this kind of problems with every SVN since the 24th of June where I need to remark that before this date I did not update the SVN since the 4th of June.


    Cheers,
    Ronald
