Well, title says it all. It happens everytime I switch channel. I have searched and viewed multiple threads and users with the same problem, but I couldn't find a solution for Vista x64.

Attached the logs.

Thanks! :)

Hi Olafett

I had the same thing up until last week when I changed my audio codec from ffdshow to AC3Filter. Every time I changed channel it would either replay the last 10 minutes of the program and stick on that channel or just stick on the original channel, either way I had to stop TV service and then restart it to get the channel to change correctly, now completely cured, don't know if you are using ffdshow at all but worth a look.

No luck with AC3Filter for me. But the problem seems to be exactly the same.

EDIT: OMG!!! I fixed the problem myself. At the end of the log you can see written in swedish that my timeshift folder could not be found. I checked the path and the folder did not exist (Shouldn't these be created by the TV-server!?) I manually set the timeshift folder to one that I did know exists. I also noticed that my two tuners used different timeshift folders along with different recording formats. Changing all the paths to the same and changing recording format for both tuners to *.ts made the timeshift work as supposed. As a bonus my time for changing channels decreased from 15 seconds to below 1 second!

Yay! :D

Hmm This is a pig of a problem...

All I did was to change to AC3Filter and that was it all cured, I was not even trying to cure the fault when I did it I just decided to try out AC3 Filter on my system to see if its any better than ffdshow, mind you I replaced ffdshow with AC3Filter in all of the parts that use it, i.e. My DVD, My TV, My Video's etc , I hope you find an answer to your problem I know it drives you crazy.

Just had a thought, my codecs are:- MPEG2 = Elecard MPEG2 with dxva enabled, H264:- CoreAVC, Audio Codec:- AC3Filter and Audio Renderer:- Default Direct Sound, hope this helps.
Another problem I was getting, every time I went to the EPG or if a banner came up onscreen then the sound would go "slow" i.e. drop in pitch so that women sounded like men and men sounded like bulls, if you see what I mean. All these problems started for me when I upgraded to MP 1.0 RC4, on a clean windows re-install.

Thanks beamland :) Unless you had previously saved those settings, the values that were shown were not necessarily the ones that MP was using. In other words, it might have shown MP Audio Renderer when you first loaded configuration... but that doesn't mean MP was using the MP Audio Renderer before that time. Only logs could have...
