    Are you using Overlay(VMR7)? If so you should change to VMR 9 renderless. Overlay only shows up on one display, while VMR9 can show up on all displays.

    Someone told me that the isues depend on my graphic-card settings.
    I have an Nvidia card withe the newest driver.
    In the setup I set the "nView display settings" to "Clone" mode.
    Pc is set to primary display...

    Is there someone who can help me to setup my drivers so I can watch my Stream-Tv on my Pc and Tv at the same time :?:

    I told you it was the settings of your video card, because i once in a while have the same problem. With my ati card i also set the tv as clone mode, but then at the "video" setting page there is an option for "overlay mode"

    I have three options over there:
    1) Standard (Then you will have the video only on the first display - black screen on the second)
    2) Theater mode (then you will have the video automaticaly fullscreen on the second display only - desktop still on the first)
    3) Same on all (This is the option to have both the screens exactly the same - what you need)

    I don't know if Nvidea has the same options but i assume so. Where it is i don't know, but maybe you now know what to look for.

    I have a similar problem. I noticed in the latest NVidia drivers that the video full screen options have gone. I'm using slightly older drivers, which let you direct video full screen to your secondary device (TV). This works for all films and video, but my WinTV card will not display anything on TV in Media Portal, only other applications.

    When I use this option I can only se the picture on my TV.
    There is no diference between normal and full screen :?: :!:

    I need an option there I can choose to have picture on both devices at the same time :idea: :?:

    Well, your issue is really weird. Normally, battery should be OK but, who know ? And, if you have something like that : It could be interesting to see if your battery give 3 Volts. Also, if, after 3 days (for example) if you can start your PC manually and, go into the BIOS, motherboard BIOS time could be a good indicator.

    OK, so I took a deep dive in the logs myself (gotta start to learn sometime) and noticed an error about Gentle.config Opened the file and it was full of NULLs. Not good for an XML file.

    You could try using the UNC paths for the timeshift and record folders. On the client machine go to MediaPortal configuration - TV/Radio - Advanced Options tick the UNC paths tick box and put the network paths for timeshift and record folders in the appropriate lines and click OK.
