    @Owlsroost not sure if you seen the German thread about issues with refresh rate changer in MP2 with FCU installed.
    The issues are gone in newer insider builds, so there is a good chance that the problems mentioned here could be gone in newer builds as well. Could someone try to confirm this?
    It could be simply a bug in Windows were no code changes in MP could help...

    The Insider build mentioned in the German thread is 17025 - Announcing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17025 for PC - Windows Experience Blog

    From the release notes, these two fixes might be relevant:

    We fixed the issue where if you RDP into a PC running this build with certain GPU configurations, when you go to sign in to the PC locally it will appear stuck at a black screen with only the cursor available.
    We fixed an issue where toggling some DX9/DX10/DX11 games between windowed and fullscreen (for example using Alt + Tab) could result in the game window become black on certain PCs.

    Lets hope we get a fix released from MS soon. The fall update seems to have caused problems accross the board, In addition to here and I bet Intel graphics the Nvidia, AMD and Cybelink forums are full of it. Following my rollback to 1703 on my Desktop PC I have subsequently replaced the Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti with an AMD R7 260x and again updated to 1709 no problems so far using the latest AMD driver. Worth noting, though, that I cannot use the same AMD driver (17.10.3) on my still 1703 Win 10 HTPC as it causes intermittent black screen hangs and OS crashes on resume from sleep. There are some indications in both Nvidia and AMD forums that attempts to resolve the problem with FCU with the latest drivers is causing compatibilty problems with Win 10 1703 and earlier and or not so new GPUs.
    Its a mess.:rolleyes:

    I'm busy downloading that update now, but noticed that it's also downloading a new version of the Intel Display Drivers too (23.20.16.4815 dated 19th October).

    The new driver is only supposed to be needed for 8th gen Appollo Lake processors, but I wonder if that's what's fixed the problem rather than the Insiders update itself?

    Mine's doing the same after the Fall update. Resuming from sleep gives a black screen in MP. It is still working because I can press left, down, OK on the remote to close it, then the desktop appears. Scheduled recordings are working as they should. I've tried S3 standby and Hibernate, no different. New Intel graphics driver didn't help either. Hopefully MS will sort it out if it's affecting lots of other software as well.

    I remember there being a "restart MediaPortal on resume" option somewhere - thought I'd try that as a workaround, but I can't find it. Does it still exist?
