    Lately I've had this really odd problem with TVServer. With irregular intervals (some 3-10 minutes) TVServer crashes and is restarted, but only for one channel, namely Swedish TV4. I've tuned other channels and they work just fine.

    When this happens the picture will freeze. It won't get going again unless I stop TV and restart it again. If I check the Event log there is a .net 2.0 runtime error and TVserver is restarted. In the TVServer log the last information before the crash is that "Discontinuity header bit is set".

    I have attached the logs to this post. I went back through old logs and found similar behavior for some unattended recordings, but again only for recordings on TV4...

    Has anyone else seen a similar problem? :confused:


    PS. I should have mentioned it screws up recordings as well as live TV.
