After installing TV-server, connecting to the database (succesfull) and running the "TV-Server Configuration", no server is visible in the console.

Looking in the error.log file, the following is recorded:
2009-04-12 22:11:14.796875 [SetupTv]: ServiceHelper: Could not check whether the tvservice is running. Please check your network as well.
Error: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Does anybody know what the problem could be?
Currently the system is installed with Windows XP professional SP2 (32bit). I have the same problem with Windows 2003.. I already tried reinstalling the tv-server, but everytime it has the same result.. :(

nvm. Found the solution in

1. Stop TV-Service / SetupTV,

2. extract those to dll's into "MediaPortal TV Server" root folder, will overwrite 2 old ones,

3. Delete the Configuration_tuner.xml's in "%ProgramData%\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\AnalogCard" for vista users & "Documents and Settings\All Users\Programdata\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal TV Server\AnalogCard" for XP users,

4. Start TV-Service again & SetupTV, it should now work.

File can be found here
