Hello, like some other users I am having problem with the preview window remaining blank. I just did a full deinstall of MediaPortal and then installed a fresh copy of just the TV Server v1.25 for now. I also installed the LAV Filters and raised the merit as was suggested with filmedit but still no success. Sounds works and helps in checking that the tuning is happening on a given channel but not as effective of course as having the video preview as well. Nothing special in the logs as far as I can tell. Anyone would have additional suggestions ? Would like to avoid having to rebuild the server from scratch.

Only have the TV Server installed no MediaPortal client. Don't believe there is a CODEC configuration in TV Server Configuration. From what I read on the forum I believe the preview window used for Channel preview in TV Server configuration uses the highest merit filter but I am not seeing any filter in filmerit that has an unusually high merit.
