    The problem has been found. When the MiniDisplay is enabled and configured, the mentioned problems will occur. Read this post for more information.

    The same bug which was reported in this thread is still present in 1.1.0 final. This was tested on a clean Windows 7 x64 installation with no codecs installed (other than provided by Microsoft and Team MediaPortal).



    Attached are two MediaPortal log collections. The first one was created by starting MediaPortal and by trying to play a recorded file (which fails). MediaPortal reports: "Unable to play, Video codec: MPEG VIDEO VERSION 2, Audio codec: MPEG AUDIO VERSION 1 LAY...".

    The second one was made by starting MediaPortal, watching Live TV for a few seconds before playing the same recorded file again (which succeeds).

    [edit]
    The above report was made without using RTSP ('usertsp' is 'no' in MediaPortal.xml and two paths are added for Timeshifting and Recorded TV usage over SMB using mounted drives). Two new attachments are added for the default situation of MediaPortal (no 'usertsp' at all in MediaPortal.xml and no added paths). The symptoms are the same, only the error which MediaPortal gives when playing Recorded TV directly is different: "Unable to play: 64C5E4ED". If another file is used for the same test, the value after 'Unable to play' changes.

    I can also confirm that this bug is present. I am also using Win7x64. I did a clean install of MP 1.1.0 final to see if it fixed the problem ... which it did not. I have tried changing video and audio codecs (Cyberlink PDVD 9/10, Microsoft DTV-DVD and Ffdshow).

    AW: Unable to play Recorded TV unless Live TV is watched first

    Das Problem besteht schon in früheren RC Versionen.
    Ich konnte es aber in letzter Zeit nicht mehr reproduzieren und habe es daher nicht gepostet.
    Habe es nach diesen Eintrag und Entrag im Bugreport Forum noch einmal getestet.
    Problem ist wieder vorhanden.

    Rather than watching live TV, what happens if you try to play a recording and it fails, then you hit stop and try again with the same recording? Does it play the second time?

    The exact same error appears. I will post the logs for the mentioned situation (start Recorded TV -> fail -> start Recorded TV -> fail) within twelve hours.

    Alright. Here is the log. I tried (without starting Live TV first) to play the file three times, which gave the exact same error. I also tried playing another file after that, which also failed.
