    Hello!
    If I watch one TV channel and want to open a second one with PiP enabled first player image freezes. Can anyone else who maybe uses SlimTV Extended confirm this (@Testers ;))? I haven't had this problem since ever, must be starting with one of the newer SlimTV Extended builds but I don't know exactly when. Currently I am using the SlimTV Extended build from MP2 repo for MP2 Alpha4. Haven't tested NativeTV yet.
    I got this problem on my test PC (IPTV) and on my HTPC (DVB-C).

    PiP: TV + TV = problems.
    PiP: TV + video = no problems
    PiP: Video + video = no problems

    Logs and a small video (test.rar) whats happening attached.
    Thanks. :)

    I've seen "freezes" as well, but after short time playback continued. My guess would be the video codec which hangs. You could try to set MS codec for all video types and try to reproduce the problem.

    Yes, it is working way better with the anniversary release + MP Extended. Freeze for about 5 secs of one TV player then stream continues. I can live with that. :)
    Tho local videos work flawlessly in PiP. :)
    Thanks!
