Hi!

(Sorry if this is a dublicate reqest.)

To me it seems as if MP is not releasing TV tuner devices properly after closing MP. This inhibits starting of other TV viewers after MP. This applies at least for Terratec HTC DVB-C Stick and probably also for Terratec DVB-T Diversity USB (2 DVB-T tuners) too because no TV tuner devices are available after closing MP. So one needs to restart the computer to use other sw after MP.

Thx,
robopoulos

    Hello robopoulos

    It will be TV Server that is blocking the tuners, not MediaPortal. The TV service is normally always running in the background.

    Having said that, the TV service shouldn't block tuners unless you enable the EPG grabber or set "when card enters idle state..." to pause. There is a warning about this in the wiki:
    http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_...nfiguration/02_TV_Servers#Edit_Tuner_Settings

    The TV service can be stopped in the "manual control" section of TV Server configuration or in the Windows service management console (MSC).
