Hi doveman,
sorry, I've obviously not read your first post very well.

Where does MP2 get the tuning parameters from as I couldn't find a collection of .xmls like MP1 uses?
ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\SlimTVCore\TuningParameters

Can you post your logs again?

Jean
I don't have that folder (it goes as far as C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\SlimTVCore) so I guess it must be getting the tuning parameters from somwhere else.

I did stop the MP1 tvservice before opening the MP2 tv server config.

Hi Doveman,

That is strange.
Do you use the setup from morpheus_xx first post?
Could you check your download.
Do you use a second tv-service?

Yeah, I just checked and re-unzipped the SetupTV folder just in case.

I do have the MP1 tv-service but I Stop that before running MP2-Server.exe in the MP2-Server.

Hi morpheus,

installation runs without errors, and you're right, channel scan ist slow :)

But after channelscan all actions need a really long time. If I click f.e. on manual control it needs up to 2 min until the gui reacts again again.

Log's attached, maybe I did a mistake while setup MP2.

I've checked the archive again, it does include the tuningdetails inside the ProgramData\MP2-Server\SlimTvCore folder.

Anyway, we are still working on this part, so you can expect a new build in the next 1-2 weeks.

Yeah sorry, something must have gone wrong when I was unzipping as I didn't have any of the three folders under SlimTvCore!

I deleted and reinstalled everything now and it's picking up the channels now, although it's a lot slower than MP1. It also shows bandwidth:0 still, even though the .xml has bandwidth 8 specified but I guess that's just a GUI/display issue or else it wouldn't be picking up the channels.

I still can't change the server from 192.168.1.64 to 192.168.2.1 though as it just reverts when changing tab or closing the config. The same applies to the Streaming Server tab, changing it from Auto to 192.168.2.1 and clicking apply restarts the TVservice but it just reverts to Auto when I go away from that tab. Config still shows it's running in Restricted Mode, so maybe that's something to do with it.

I've also found the Import on the Recording tab doesn't work as after it seems to be doing something, it still shows all the recordings listed and ticked as before.

Thanks for testing again.

The bandwidth issue seems to be related to a chance done by mm to the xml style. I did forget about this, before I copied the tuning details. This will be fixed in next release!

Maybe @gibman can check the IP selection?

I just did some testing:

All xml files at C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\SlimTVCore\TuningParameters\dvbs seem to be unnecessary, you only need the satellites.xml file which is by the way outdated, see my post here.
To prevent this, implement the WiP from Sebastiii, this really seems to work nicely (I've tested it successfully).

Second, I was not able to view live-TV in MP2 client after channel scan. Nothing happened after clicking the internal tv plugin


Third, when I tried to preview a (known to be good FTA) channel to rule things out, there was an frozen image of the broadcast and then nothing happened.

Fourth, Long channelscan and some trouble to speed things up with dedicated transponderscan and above made me gave up and go to MP1 again. Time for beer ;)
