No TV Function

This release does not work at all for me, well the TVserver manual control indicates is is timeshifting but MP does not display live TV and locks, has to be killed via task manager.

Installed both TV and MP rev 16629

Using Vista32, EVR enabled

Zip file from MP testtool attached.

    Just saying something works doesnt make it easier for us..

    full logs plz.

    Also please bear in mind that u need to update all parts of MP (tv client, tv server and MP itself).

    The new audio stuff is only supported on tsreader - but since this is now mandatory, everyone should have it.
    atleast if use use SVNs.

    I have the same problem (Live TV does not work at all). I recognized this problem also in the previous build 16627.

    I did a few tests:

    1. Using preview of SetupTV : SetupTV hangs ( see log_setuptv_preview_hang.rar & .jpg)
    2. Running MP watching TV: A few channels worked, but after changing the channel once more MP hangs
    (see Log_mp.rar & log_tvservice_running_mp_hangs.rar)


    Configuration.exe needs more than 1 minute to show the plugin section (or the same time to close with saving data without showing previously the plugin section). This problem is a live since a 3 or 4 weeks. I mentioned it previously already (see also Log_mp.rar). Does somebody has an idea why? :mad:

    i can confirm that the fireDtv remote is now working again

    for me live tv didn't working until i installed the newest tv-server version. Now everything is working fine
