    @high - I think we should change the Windows 7 entry in the 'Supported OS' section on this page - Requirements - MEDIAPORTAL - to say:

    • Windows 7 32- and 64-bit with at least service pack 1
     
    • Request done Request done x 1

    The only file that the logs show MP trying (and failing) to play is 'D:\TV2\Count Arthur Strong\Season 3\5.flv', (a Flash video file) which TsReader.ax does not handle anyway.

    What is the actual problem you have? Is there a problem with TV not working?

    Thanks for getting back!
    Problem wasn't with TV btw!!!
    Following upgrading of OV to 2.3.1.0.....I noticed that ordinary Videos would not play. ....tried several types, and always got the 'Unable to play' message...with comments on audio/video codecs!!
    Just before you replied....I re-installed 1.17 final.....and problem appears to have gone away.....videos can now be played once again.:)
    :cautious:.....so not really sure what had happened to stop earlier video playback!!
