i'm sorry to report i'm affraid i still have this issue, if i'm watching channel x on the client it reflects that in the server, then if i change channels to channel y on the client the screen freezes video and audio like its about to change, and if you look on the server it has changed to the new channel there but the client still has frozen audio and video with a bit of audio and video changes from time to time, and you have to close out of MP or end task on it, if you then look in the log of mediaportal.log file the last entry is this

    Check you are using tvclient/server svn lower than 12880 then you should try again with a newer build. 12893 it's a good one for this test.

    Fixes for this issue were on 12886 and above if I recall correctly.

    yeah tried the latest, i have now come to the conclusion that my issues are related around poor reception and signal strength, i will have to get an external antenna and see if it fixes it up.
