Hi all

I recently re-installed my HTPC and now have a problem with live or recorded HD TV channels - I get sound but no picture.
I tested in TV Setup/Preview and also get no picture.
If I play a recorded HD channel (.TS) with Media Player it works properly.
MKV HD movies are working properly in MP.

I've attached a log bundle and also separately "graph_MediaPortal PID (964) IFilterGraph = 694F0C0.jpg" which shows that for some reason the MPC video codec isn't connected. What might cause this problem?

I'm using SAF 3.40 with the PowerDVD codec for MPEG-2.

Cheers
Mark

    Right now MP and the h264 MPC HC codec are not compatible.

    The SAF thread also clearly states this:

    Problems:
    I cannot play some *.ts files/My HDTV don't work!
    Well, there is a problem between MP internal TS splitter and MPC-HC decoder, look here:
    https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...twork- internal-tsreader-ax-45208/#post305001
    Solution? Rename your *.ts files to MKV or MP4 - this will disable internal ts splitter, and Haali doo the
    work.
    No solution for HDTV yet... :(

    So for h264 you need a different codec like divx7, powerdvd, coreavc,..

    Hello, Since windows 7 is not supported yet by microsoft, I migrated from windows 7 x64 to windows 10 x64. I have a server on which a WinTV-quadHD card is installed. This card worked perfectly before the migration and no hardware change was made (not a single cable disconnected). Since my passage under windows 10 x64, I can't get...

    The problem is the combination of Digital Devices Card, Alphacryt Cam and TVE3 of Mediaportal. Unfortunately I dont have a solution, only two "Workarounds". First is to try native TVE35 with MP2, i did not have any continuity errors or hickups with that constellation. Second would be to change the cam, I tried RTL HD with a Deltacam...

    Thank you for the reply. It looks like a codec mess. the LAV audio decoder / playback has a -350 delay on the audio on one set of channels and is +150 on the others lol. Thats so strange! I didn't have time to mess with it much yesterday but I was able to see where the problems are more. Updated drivers for AMD Radeon V5800 but...
