I have a problem with MP when trying to watch TV. It quite often says no signal detected and shows the signal quality at 100% this will quite often happen when changing over to full screen. (To view tv full screen not make MP full screen) sometimes if I change channel then go back it will cure it. This it not a bad signal problem because if I close MP down and then watch the same channel via ShowShifter or PowerCinema there is no problem at all. I have SP2 installed and all the other required patches from Microsoft update.

Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know of a cure?

My tv card is the Twinhan DTV Ter (D + A)

Same problem for me, I have a Twinhan DTV-S, and sometimes it says that the channel is encoded, but I have a genuine smartcard.
