Here it is. I did not find the TsReader.log from "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Log", so it is also attached separately.

To be consistent, TV5 Monde is again the first scrambled channel. This time it was already problematic (slow and grey/white screen).

    The TsReader.log contains lot of:
    [2016-03-03 19:43:26,486] [ 8985b40] [1008] - PES MPEG2 0-0-1 fail
    [2016-03-03 19:43:26,498] [ 8985b40] [1008] - PES audio 0-0-1 fail

    This means the transport stream is not decoded correctly by CAM. See also this post: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...t-nicht-auf-anhieb.133289/page-2#post-1170396. In this case the "MPEG Audio Decoder" caused trouble. After settings it's priority to lowest level, it worked.

    I also know about issues with DD TV cards, where a loose / broken cable between CI / card caused issues.

    So there are some things left to try :)

    I also know about issues with DD TV cards, where a loose / broken cable between CI / card caused issues.
    I can confirm this. The cable is very delicate and plugging/unplugging just a few times can damage it. The bad news is that it may appear to still be functioning while in reality causing trouble.

    Thank you both for your thoughts! I would however tend to think that in this case it is not an issue with the cabling (hardware). On the one hand, I just sent back a PCIe CI Expansion Module, which showed exactly the same symptoms. On the other hand, everything works very well and very robustly with DVBViewer Pro Demo. I have no idea about the technical differences with respect to the TV Server of MP2. In any case, later on I would try to look into the other lead Morpheus_xx suggested.

    Dear Morpheus_xx,

    I still assume that the issue is not due to hardware problems.

    In the beginning of my search I thought, I would need to dig into the registry, but eventually found out that GraphStudio can in principle also change the merit of decoders. As a first step I attempted to alter the Microsoft DTV-DVD A/V Decoders, but GraphStudio "[Fails] to update merit value" (run as Administrator).

    These days other issues also need my attention, but I will gradually dig deeper. However, if you had any suggestions in the meantime, they would be appreciated.

    Kind regards,
    Balazs

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...

    In lieu of a likely modification to TV Setup module, I have devised my own workaround, using SQL. Here is a quick resume. Should be safe but make sure you have a backup before you try this! Simple scenario to demonstrate. 2 cards both on A/B diseqc switches. In each case A connects to LNB pointed at Satelite 1, and B to Sat 2...
