    This is a very consistent bug in 1.0 Final (SVN not installed YET), and I remember I had it also in the RC issues.. Till now I blamed allways it was my system itself, but it seems so consistent with mediaportal, I decided today to report it as a bug.

    After reboot of my system and start Mediaportal and then try to watch TV I allways get the message Timeshift cannot start because there is no free TV Card.. However I have not running any other client at all (I have only one TV card). Then I close Mediaportal, restart TVService, start mediaportal again, and then everything works fine.

    Now I just restart the TV server before I start Mediaportal to watch TV, but this should not be this way, tight?

    This time I started the mediaportal debug mode as adminisrator, and then it works, I made the following logs

    attached a log right after computer reboot without restarting the TVservice first, and also a log that shows what is going on when starting mediaportal AFTER restarting TVservice when all is OK.

    Advice is, as allways appreciated.

    The database backend (provider SQLServer) could not be reached.

    Check your SQL server configuration first. Otherwise, uninstall and delete the database files and reinstall SQL using "MediaPortal" as the password.

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.
