Since I install RC version 4 of MediaPortal and TV service. The channels are correctly detected but I can not zap channels to channels. I go on the module TV, the channel launches but as soon as I zap it freeze 5 seconds and it marks me that there was no graph . With Windows Media Center when I change channel, the software tells me for 2 seconds: unavailable signal and then I see the chain normally. I have a small indoor antenna that works very well but I think the problem is there, because it takes time to find the signal.

With Windows Media Center, apparently, it awaits the signal MediaPortal but obviously it is not as patient and balance me directly that the channel is not available.

They are an option to wait for the software or is it a bug?

Thank you in advance for your answers!

PS : Sorry for my english, it's very bad :( I'm french lol
