I'd start a bug report, but I don't feel my issue us a bug. I'd like to install some of the newer SVN's so I can utilize some of the new plug-ins out there. Only problem is they ALL break my setup as far as viewing TV... With my new clean install of MP 1.0 , everything works great. If I install any of the new SVN's, TV breaks. There are absolutely no error logs to report because if I grab one of the timeshift .ts files and play it back in MPC they work fine. So obviously this is a video problem with MP. Anyone have any idea's here?

    Even if there are no errors logged,
    a dev will be probably have a better understanding of what's going wrong
    by checking the other log files.
    So one should always add the log files.

    Besides when applying SVN releases make sure to test things
    with the default skin and no 3rd party plugins activated first.

    Well the problem now is that I don't want to install any of the new SVN's because it takes a large amount of effort to remove them and get back to where I was, and I deleted all of the old logs. I have a sandbox setup in my office to test things against. I applied the SVN's to it and that machine worked. However, they aren't exactly the same machines. The sandbox uses nvidia graphics, but they're both running clean copies of XP SP3. The only thing I did differently on that setup is when it asked if I wanted to unisntall the previous TV server I selected no. With that being said, I don't think that the TV server is causing the problem.

    Will a windows system restore point revert to the prioir installation if I decide to try again?

    Installing a svn creates a backup, so if things do go pear shaped all you have to do is delete the program\user mediaportal folders and rename the backups to Mediaportal without the date.

    You would need the matching TVServer\TVClient plugin, so you would have to reinstall those bits, just chose to not delete settings on uninstall, thats all there is to it.
