    First.....Thanks for all the wonderful work you folks are doing....MediaPortal is fantastic.

    I may have found a bug....either in MP codec or sound card driver:

    Playing a playlist of multiple episodes in MKV(H.264 AC3 w/subtitles, latest Haali & ffdshow tryout codecs) occasionally when going from one episode to another there is no audio....video and subitles play just fine just no sound. If you go to playlist and reselect same video, it plays without any problems. Does not happen every time, maybe every three or four episodes. I'd be happy to post logs if necessary. BTW...I"m using SVN but this has been happening since BETA1 released.

    Have the same issue but I think it is related to FFDShow tryouts (pesumably you are using an SVN version?)
    Does not need a playlist. If I open video files then at some point one of the files will start with no audio and after that no audio in MP at all. If I close and restart everything is fine. Tried to track this down but could not find anything and was unable to reproduce error using AC3Filter so I have to think this is FFDShow tryout issue)

    My problem is a little different.....if I persist in playing the file(2 or 3 times) it will play just fine....not necessary to restart MP. I did see another thread about an error I'm getting: "VMR9: failed releasing InPin 0x: (0)" , which I'm thinking may be related (although afik vmr9 is video) but I'm not familiar with the MP code to say for sure.
