Sorry - Same problems exist for me

Just tested this SVN and still have the problems trying to start MyTV with BBC1/BBC2 as initial channels. Trys and fails to choose the correct codec.

Starting with Five/Channel 4 uses correct codec and changeing channel to BBC1/BBC2 works and continues to use correct codec.

Attached 2 sets of logs;

MediaPortalLogs-Five-to-bbc2 - Start MP with Five as deafult channel and switch to BBC2, all ok - exit MP

MediaPortalLogs-Strart-on-bbc2 - restart MP and start MyTV (BBC2 now default) - MP locks and has to be killed via Task Manager.

Did notice that the setupplugin.exe is dated the 26th Dec, though the change log indicates workwas done on this on the 29th??

also mp freeze in another situation

May be the same problem.
If I view certain channels (especially ZDF) and then switch TV off, keep MP open (untouched), wait a time between 15min and a couple of hours, then try to switch TV on:
Result: MP freezes
In this situation TVService cannot be stopped by service control manager, only killed with task manager.
Once TVService is killed, MP responds with a message (Timeshift cannot be started, connection to TVServer lost).
So the freeze of MP is caused by a 'wait for answer loop).

I reported ZDF issues here (there also my equipment details):

I happens the same way on two completely different PCs.
In one situation I have seen TVService consuming more than 500MB RAM but this is not always the case.
Also the wait time is very different. At least if MP is open (idle) over night then the next morning the problem is always there.

After restart of TVService it works again (may need several restarts until high band works also).
Details for that issue here:

I can confirm this behavior to with svn 16619 as it is the last one that works. If I close mp and leave it for about 30 mins I will not work unless you restart the service
