    Hi,

    Just recently, I've had some problems with my setup of MediaPortal.

    Last week, I uninstalled GB-PVR and deleted the associated directories. This is the time the problem seemed to start.

    When I restart my computer, the TV service does not seem to start. When I go to "My TV", it asks for the host and address (or whatever it does).

    When I close mediaportal, and then try and open TV Server Configuration, it says "TV Service is not running, start it now?" and then everything is OK again.

    I have checked in the services area under manage computer (right click on my computer / manage) and TV Service is listed and is set to Automatic.

    Is there anything which could be stopping the TV Service starting? Should I try and add something to my start up folder to try and 'force' it to start? Any other helpful suggestions!?

    Cheers,
    Danny

    Same problem here - only started a few days ago. Don't know what caused it, but like you TV Service only starts upon starting the TV Server Config app!!

    Can you post your logs? Should be in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team Mediaportal\Tv Server I think. Difficult for anyone to help without them.

    I did have this issue before, unfortunately I can't remember exactly what the problem was and how I fixed it!
