Hi all

Anyone have any ideas as to why my tbs6981 will scan for channels ok and find epg data but won't preview any channels. It just comes up with a grey preview box with no picture.

Thanks

Matt

    Hello Matt

    The preview function is a bit hit and miss - it relies on codecs being available and configured appropriately on your system. It works well on some systems but not so well on others depending on what other software is installed.
    There is absolutely no connection with the performance of your tuner so rest easy on that front.

    Thanks for that. I found "Chnlineup" in the Sky grab and "FreesatEPG" in the Freesat grab and enabled them both in EPG Collector, and also set them as the EPG grabber for radio in MP2. But here's the odd thing: The next time I opened the XMLTV EPG mapper (where you map actual channels to channels available in the EPG), the radio...

    Hi, First off: there are some issues with the latest Mediaportal (32bits vs 64bits), so that is one of the issues you're stumbling with. If you take the previous version (1.31) it should work as expected. For IPTV there is also a different option (with different pros and cons): Onlinevideos. I'm using that sometimes for my IPTV as...

    You need to check the wiki for TVMosaic, you have recordings as source available once TVM is installed. And of course images and music are part of the NET6 version as for NET4. If you have issues with it further infos would be good.
