MediaPortal Version: 1.12.0

After installing MP 1.12.0

- Turn on Panasonic TV and Onkyo Receiver (TX SR606) - so to as to see Windows on TV screen
- Start MP
- Navigate to a recorded TV Program
- Play. The recorded TV program and Audio plays properly ;-)
- Stop playing recorded program

- Turn off TV and Onkyo Receiver.
- Wait a bit

- Turn on TV and Onkyo Receiver.
- MP Menu is displayed OK, and works fine
- Replay the same TV recording (or any TV recording)
- PROBLEM: A black screen is displayed. And there is no audio.
- Stop the playback
- MP Menu is displayed correctly.
- Try and play any other TV recording: Same problem

1. If you Exit and Restart MP, the problem is fixed. Its only turning off the TV that seems to create the problem.

2. I tried turning off and on just the TV and left the Onkyo Receiver on. Same problem exists

3. After not being able to see or hear a TV recording I tried playing a video in MP. I could see it, but there was no audio. Going back to replay a TV recording resulted in the main problem described above (No Audio and a black screen)

Note this problem did not exist in MP 1.11
I have not changed any hardware, or anything else.
I think new LAV codecs were installed as a part of MP 1.12 (automatically)

I have tried reinstalling MP 1.12 - didnt help
PC has been shutdown and restarted several times - didnt help

I am thinking of going back to 1.11... but will give it few days


Steps to Reproduce:
See above[DOUBLEPOST=1437728320][/DOUBLEPOST]Um... I think I uploaded the log file. But I don't see it here in the thread.
Let me know if I haven't done it properly and I will re-upload it.
