Hi,

Yesterday, at some point in time, I lost ALL my FreeviewHD channels within Mediaportal RC4 EPG. Only SD ones available from my 150MCE cards. I have TV3 setup for viewing inside MP EPG, but not any other free-to-air ones.

Strangely, TV1& TV3 recorded three programmes, in total, last night, but channel 2 did not. TV3 channels had AC3 but not sure they were HD as I got none of the usual associated logos at the programmes' start. File sizes would indicate HD (Bones @ 6.63GB & Numbers @ 6.03GB), so maybe they are.

I can preview the HD channels from within TVServer config.

What I've tried:
 -restored back to slightly earlier period
 -deleted & re-ran XMLTVNZ guide data
 -force guide data loading from inside TVServer config>plugins>XMLTV


Not sure what to try at present: any ideas? Thanks.

Oh yeah, TV3 & C4 also recorded the V8 supercar races: even though their pathetic stance to end the broadcasts some 70% only through the races.

What happens when you try to view the HD channel within mediaportal.
If you can view in tv server preview but not MP it could be a codec issue
run graphedit when previewing in tv server and check which h264 codec is used.
then do the same within MP (use windowed mode) and see which h264 codecs it is using.

Thanks for the reply & apologies for not getting back sooner. I had my PC disconnected as I was doing major software surgery on a mate's PC: had more viruses than Middlemore.

But anyway, I Ghosted back to an earlier image & went from there. Everything is back in operational mode.
