    Hi all.

    Odd problem. :giggle:

    I have stand alone TV Server and TV Client setup. Both running latest test release of MP1, both in Win10 machines.

    TV Server device has 2 networks active - 192.168.1.230/24 on WiFi and 192.168.2.230/24 wired into Powerline [just as switch here, it's for keyboard & mouse share, network is not routed as interface has no default route].

    TV Client is on 192.168.1.248/24 via powerline [so via powerline it could see the 192.168.2.230 interface but it has no actual routing either].

    WiFi router has zero visibility of 192.168.2/24.

    Now, TV Server log shows:

    [2020-10-19 16:53:29,501] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - Controller: started at Media2
    [2020-10-19 16:53:29,502] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - Controller: local ip address:192.168.56.1
    [2020-10-19 16:53:29,503] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - Controller: local ip address:192.168.2.230
    [2020-10-19 16:53:29,503] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - Controller: local ip address:192.168.1.230
    [2020-10-19 16:53:29,572] [Log ] [TVService] [INFO ] - Controller: server running on 192.168.1.230

    The important thing being server running on 192.168.1.230.

    Now the problem.:mad:

    On the Client machine, at start up MediaPortal hangs after about 15 seconds - totally unresponsive. :censored:

    Process it's NOT in wait state, but it is making MediPoral.exe specific network connections to 192.168.2.230 on port 3306 [from Perfmonitor console - greyed out with zero traffic sent]. Eventually these timeout BUT it takes around 5 minutes. After that, it all works.

    It looks like TV Server is advertising the MySQL link too the Client and the Client is then trying to complete the circuit to no avail [disable TV pluging on Client, no issue, so it is 100% in TV space].:confused:

    Tried with and without Windows FW [tedious either way:(], both Private and Public profiles.

    Any ideas and possible suggestions would be most welcome:)

    We'll, again I have posted a problem then found the solution myself :whistle: I incorrectly used "Multi seat setup: use UNC paths" when I was setting up initially and having some trouble with paths. I had clicked help for that setting before I tried using it, but many of the help links in the config utility are broken. Today I...

    I think that this is a different exception to the others that have been reported. This is what happened: I woke the system from hibernation. From the Windows 7 desktop, I pressed the START button on the remote control to start MP 1.25f. On the MP splash screen, the "Starting TV Server" text appeared unexpectedly. After a long wait...

    Solved VNC did also work with the new monitor setup OK, decided to go to the most basic level and hooked this PC up to an HDMI monitor instead of the old tiny VGA monitor it was hooked up to for testing and it worked fine. So must have been something related to that old monitor or drivers or whatever. Haven't yet checked to see if...
