    error description:
    ------------------
    With timeshifting on, the bottom half of the picture is missing 36 lines after changing to a different channel. This does not occur with TS off.

    1. start mediaportal in fullscreen mode
    2. go to MyTV (with timeshifting on)
    3. switch to fullscreen TV
    4. change to a different channel
    5. notice 36 lines are missing from the of the picture
    6. Go back to windowed TV
    7. Disable timeshifting
    8. switch to fullscreen TV again
    9. change to a different channel again
    10. notice picture is OK

    before the channel change, in the MediaPortal.log:
    Code:
    5-10-2005 15:35:36 PlaneScene: video WxH  : 768x576
    5-10-2005 15:35:36 PlaneScene: video AR   : 768:576
    after the channel change with TS, in the MediaPortal.log:
    Code:
    5-10-2005 15:35:47 StreamBufferPlayer: event:VideoSizeChanged 0xA param1:31458000 param2:0 param1:0x1E002D0 param2:0x0
    5-10-2005 15:35:47 PlaneScene: video WxH  : 720x540
    5-10-2005 15:35:47 PlaneScene: video AR   : 720:540
    Please notice the "StreamBufferPlayer: event: VideoSizeChanged" occurred after the channel change. Also notice the change in picture WxH and AR. Anyone around with a Hauppauge PVR-150MCE experiencing the same? Or maybe someone who has the same TV card, but doesn't experience this?

    EDIT: after posting I finally notice there must be something missing from the left and/or right part of the screen, too (since the video WxH changed from 768x540 to 720x540). I'll look into that further... ;-)

    Kind regards,
    Michel

    Hi,

    Just found out there's a new driver (2.0.35.23258) available for my TV card from http://www.hauppauge.tv. From the changelog:
    * PAL/MCE intermittent vertical stretching fixed.
    Could this be my problem? I'll install version 2.0.35.23258 tonight to see if this new version fixes my problem.

    Kind regards,
    Michel
