I have successfully gotten MediaPortal and TVServer to recognize the HDPVR as a card, I have gotten in touch with SchedulesDirect and gotten all my channels to show on the TV plugin. My problem is: once I press "TV On" the whole thing freezes. Then I must ctrl-alt-delete to get out. :mad:

I was able to press TV on before schedules direct plugin, but I was only able to pick up a bunch of weird CBVS#1 of 1 type of channels, and really all that did was take the stream from my STB (hr20) and send it to my HDPVR, then to my HTPC.

So the error comes when I want to take control of TV at the HTPC.

Here are some logs. Thanks for your help. I feel like I'm at the finish line but can't take another step!

Welp, a little more playing with my computer and for some reason it stopped freezing and game me a "unable to start timeshift" error.

Not sure what that means, but hopefully someone does. Here's the updated logs. It appears that it just finally started timing out, instead of never making it that far.

I get either or when it comes to that. Usually it'll do the not able to start timeshift, but sometimes it just freezes. I haven't got any tv to show up in MP yet, though
