    No logs yet - at work (lunchtime).

    Since updating from MP1.6 to MP1.8 on my server/single seat system when I play recorded TV, it is fine. But - finish watching (stop, delete) and play something else and no audio.

    Took a few times of this happening and me changing the audio renderer (normally set to MP Audio Renderer) back and forth before I realised that if I just LEFT it for ~5 minutes after playing one recording then it would play OK the second time.

    It is almost as though the renderer is held in memory and not reinitialised [correctly] for the second playback. Waiting for a while might mean that Windows get bored and throws it out of the pram.

    The server is connected to a TV via HDMI and has been for years, Win7 just to stop MS from fiddling with something that I rely on <grin>.

    I WILL get logs but as it isn't 100% they might be messier than I'd like - horrible searching huge tracts I know.
