PerfectV: Passive 1 - 4 splitter, 5 - 2400mhz rated.

Had been working fine, you think going back to the single cable is worth a shot?

Not necessarily... but are you aware that the tuners have to send power to the satellite dish in order for the channels to work?

If only one of the outputs of the splitter passes power from tuner to dish (which is possible), then the tuner connected to that output must be powered on and active in order for the other tuners to receive signal. Further, there are two voltage levels that a tuner can send to the dish. Lets call them high and low for simplicity. For Sky channels to work, the tuner needs to send high voltage to the dish. Low voltage won't work. Vertical polarisation = low voltage; horizontal polarisation = high voltage.

Splitter is all ports power pass. Took it out and still getting a no signal issue. It seems to work until the TV service is restarted and then nothing.

Ok so I just did the cleanest install possible (full clean windows install) and it all seemed to be working, until i tried to watch Sky Sport 1 HD. Then all of a sudden no video or audio warnings on all channels.

As far as I'm concerned, the issue is with XBMC's PVR integration:
2012-11-18 22:25:54.070063 [(23)]: TVServerXBMC: Exception while processing connection: System.IO.IOException: Unable to read data from the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote hostat System.Net.Sockets.Socket.Receive(Byte[] buffer, Int32 offset, Int32 size, SocketFlags socketFlags)

That is not an MP TV Server error.
Tuning of Sky Sport 1 HD succeeded:

So I'm sorry but I'm not able to help you any further - this is beyond my area of expertise.

If in manual control I time shift and record should the resulting. Ts be watchable?

Also thanks heaps for all the time you're giving me, well above what I could have dreamed of.

PerfectV: If in manual control I time shift and record should the resulting. Ts be watchable?

Yes, if your decryption setup is working properly. That is something I'm not really able to advise about either - never used M**** - and the MP team prefers to distance ourselves from it because it is a legal grey area.

Also thanks heaps for all the time you're giving me, well above what I could have dreamed of.

No problem. :)

Ok, thanks to the hint I worked out that there was a combination of ACAMD missing a couple channels from a config file for some reason and OSCAM service randomly and silently stopping. Fixed now.

Now just channel changing speeds to fix and I'll be set. The 5 - 10 second wait is too much!
