No picture in Fullscreen (1 Viewer)

October 4, 2005
Well I had MP all up and running for about a month. Then all of a sudden I don't have any picture when I go to fullscreen in TV, Video or DVD. Nothing has been installed or uninstalled on the PC. The only thing that I did was apply the latest CVS as of 10-14.

I uninstalled 0.2.0 and installed 0.1.3 and I now have picture in fullscreen with TV but still no DVD or Video.

Let me know if there is a log I should post.

    Well, sometimes CVS does not run properly. Therefore it is always recommended to make a backup of your running MP version. This is so easy, you just have to copy your MP directory...

    - did you run the start.bat after applying the CVS?
    - did you run setup, before starting up MP and checked all you settings (esp. codec and rendering)?

    Yes, logs might help. Start MP, try to go fullscreen somewhere, stop MP, look for /MP/logs/mediaportal.log

    I did make a copy so I have repalced it and it seems to be working fine now. I also did all the other steps you listed as well.

    The weird thing is it ran great for like a week after I applied the CVS and then it just stopped.
