Timeshif only works for 5 minutes, then it stops and MP goes to an upper menu (1 Viewer)

Hi guys,

I hope someone can help me with my issue. Since I upgraded to version 1.14.0 MP has a strange behaviour on timeshifting: it only works for 5 minutes. I proceed as I always did...I start the TV program, I press pause and when I come back I press pause again to play the stream . It awlays worked perfectly, I could timeshift 45 to 60 minutes nio prob. But now MP "time-shifts" only for 5 minutes, then it stops the TV and even jumps to a previous menu. And after 5 further minutes (preset) the PC goes to hibernation. I increased the max. file size of timeshifting to 1024 MB, nothing changes. It's not a HDD issue as I still have 200 GB free disk space. I upload both a screenshot of the timeshift settings and the WatchDog log in case someone wants to take a look at. Can anyone figure out what the hell is going on?

    It looks like your display (TV or PC monitor) is set to power off after 5 minutes. When the display powers off, the associated HDMI audio connection is lost. When any audio connection is changed MP will stop playback.

    The same thing happens twice in the log files.

    So, it seems this problem has nothing to do with time-shift files or file sizes and everything to do with your power settings.
