I'm using mediaportal for about 6 month.
The TV service was always stable.

in the last week, I saw on several occasions that although the system was on no recording were made.
When I tried to open TV server Configuration I got an error message "the TV server is not running".

Rebooting solved the problem, but as I mentioned before, it came back after some time.

Later I saw that when the error accurse, although the service was running, restarting it solved the problem.

Today I checked the logs and I think is has something to do with my database (MySQL):

I found a log entry in the system event viewer:
Time: 17:21:07, source: ESENT description: wuauclt (2548) The database engine stopped.‏‏

Then I found in MP error log file :
2009-03-29 17:29:15.203125 [TVService]: Exception :Error: DatabaseUnavailableUnclassified
Gentle.Common.GentleException: The database backend (provider MySQL) could not be reached.

I think that the database become unstable for some reason…
What can I do ?

    You could backup the database and then when done, drop the db from MySQL.

    Reboot and then reconfigure TVService, import your recordings, see if that fixes things, there seems to be a few corrupt database posts around, nothing specifice to either mssql or mysql.

    I backed up the DB, un installed it and re install MP.
    then I restored the db. (using MySql administrator utility)
    the system has been stable for the last weeks.
