Dear Community,

after updating MP 1.2->1.3 I ve encoutered a very strange behaviour.
  • After waking up after Hibernate or Sleep MP works normal despite that MP may jump back to home screen while having no input on a submenu OR
  • After waking up ANY video playback runs for a certain amount of time until it stops and falls back to home (always and reproduceable)
  • TV-recording tasks lead to crash - found the windows error dialouge that a program ran out of memory
Running MP after a reboot -> everything is fine. Futher circumstances:
  • often remarkable heavy HDD activity
  • nearly all add-ons disabled
  • after encounterin that behaviour -> run a MP install over the old (not tv service), updated any driver, deleted databases (after found hint in forums)
I found nothing compareable in the forums and would prefer to find a solution but to reinstall my whole machine. Since this memory error popped up once or twice while the PC had recording tasks I assume, that somethings flooding the memory, but I dont managed to figure out what. Some logs showed errors with direct X and somewhere I was told that turning on Aero is a good ideo so I did and tried to update direct x but it was already up to date.

Find my logs attached (No watchdog log since it never crashes it just falls back to home)
Thx a lot in advance

    Hello xXDrunkenMaster

    We can see errors like this several times:
    2013-05-20 12:23:16.003115 [ERROR][MPMain(1)]: Main: Device lost - Fehler in der Anwendung.
    -2005530520 (D3DERR_DEVICELOST)

    bei Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.Device.Present()

    These could indicate that your GPU is not running stable after resume.

    That (edit: I mean the device lost messages, which means GPU control/access is lost) is probably the cause of this:
    After waking up after Hibernate or Sleep MP works normal despite that MP may jump back to home screen while having no input on a submenu OR
    After waking up ANY video playback runs for a certain amount of time until it stops and falls back to home (always and reproduceable)

    For this:
    TV-recording tasks lead to crash - found the windows error dialouge that a program ran out of memory
    ... we need the TV Server and system event logs (provided by the watchdog).

    Futher circumstances:
    often remarkable heavy HDD activity
    This could be some real-time scanner (virus/spyware protection).
    Can you use task manager to check "who" is responsible for most of the disk usage?

    nearly all add-ons disabled
    Can't explain that unless you mean that nearly all add-ons are disabled in general.
    Some plugins that were compatible with MP 1.2 are not compatible with 1.3; others must be upgraded.

    after encounterin that behaviour -> run a MP install over the old (not tv service), updated any driver, deleted databases (after found hint in forums)
    I found nothing compareable in the forums and would prefer to find a solution but to reinstall my whole machine.

    So you're running with the latest GPU driver?

    You don't need to have a crash to use the watchdog! ;)
    New full logs would be appreciated.

    1.4 pre release changed a lot on the front of d3d device handling, so you might want to try that version.
