I am running Media portal 18.104.22.168 on a Windows XP box. I have a problem with TV3 on my system. Below I try to be as elaborate as possible with what I know so far...
I have recently moved from one address in West Auckland to another. At the old location everything was running just fine. However at the new location the TV server gets in trouble when I tune to TV3.
TV3 at the best of times plays a slideshow with intermittent sound or just shows black. After selection of TV3, other channels start to stutter somewhat as well. The TV server needs to be restarted before the other channels play properly.
I have the problem also when trying to playback old TV3 recordings recorded at the old address I lived. The hardware is the exact same box and same software.
So, I thought that maybe a problem with the new antenna but when I plugin the Freeview TV directly I get a perfect reception on all channels using the Waiatarua tower (I tried the others but I must use Waiatarua)
So it seems the antenna is fine. I read an old thread that TV3 is interlaced at 1080i as well as a few other channels. That may be so but unless TV3 changed something early December I can not see why I suddenly have this problem.
Can someone please suggest some things I can try and please be specific with links and details so I don't have to keep asking. I'm tearing my hair out on this as I have been trying for almost a month to get this to work again. It is bound to be something stupid.
