    Multiple confirms for both 1.4 and 1.5 Pre. This is only gonna get fixed if it's added to JIRA, so here it is:
    https://issues.team-mediaportal.com/browse/MP1-4209

    Also closed the 1.5 Pre Release thread, and linked to this 1, since it has more developer attention.

    Just installed Mediaportal 1.4 and this was the only problem so far I couldn't resolve :)
    I'll follow this topic.

    But what is being confirmed then? I've read multiple reports and confirms on this issue.
    Since some users also seem to have issues while updating, we suggest to manually stop the TVService. Maybe this is also caused by the same problem?

    That first word says enough ;) Let's see if someone is willing to investigate this more now we have it in JIRA.

    This is correct. The MP1-3172 fix makes TVService react on the Windows pre-shutdown message and let it stop the TVController and all TVServer plugins cleanly. Before they were killed by the Windows Service Manager which led to exceptions and error messages in the logs. But: Though the TVService shuts down cleanly now (seen from MP's view), Windows does not notice that the TVService has been stopped and therefore now waits for 10 seconds to get a stop notification (gives an error in the System event log) and only then continues its shutdown progress. I have found no way so far how to signal Windows that the TVService has been stopped from .NET managed code.
    So the options are:
    - Revert the MP1-3172 fix and ignore the pre-shutdown message (will bring back exceptions and error logs but shuts down 10 sec faster)
    - Keep everything as it is now (slower shutdown and error in System event log)
    - Find a way to stop TVService cleanly and under control of the Windows Service manager
    The latter should be achieved, so @Developers who can help?

    TNX for the explanation Michael ;)

    Info: The tags aren't working at the moment, so if you need developers, best to tag them with their username(s)

    my opinion for mp 1.5 final: to wait every evening sometimes longer to shut down the system than start the whole system is much more annoying than some faulty logs...
