Help Please! - I have an issue where DBVViewer v4.0 randomly stops and closes when I’m watching TV.

Seems to make no difference whether I am changing channels, time shifting or just watching. – has anyone seen this happening and if so how can I fix it? – on a 64bit Vista PC with Blackgold 6-1 card.

Some standard questions: have you disabled antivirus, anti-spyware software (not much use for these if it's a media centre only PC)?

Have you installed the latest video drivers for your card?

All Windows Updates installed?

Sounds like a licensing issue.

If you bought it get in touch with the DVBViewer guys, their customer support is pretty good.

If you got if from somewhere else, there is a well known issue that causes it to crap out after 10 minutes.  If it that its very hard to fix, about the only way I know is to buy it...

what a load of twaddle . i can speak from personal experience .
i am using dvbviewer4.0 and now the 4.0.1. 55 beta running w7 os . i thought that the reason dvbviewer was crashing was the p2p copy of 3.9.20 i was using so i b ought a legit copy of 4.0 and still the same problem.
i have since found out that windows sidebar effects dvbviewer somehow.

What I said is correct - the cracked copies of DVBViewer have many issues, of which the timeout bug is one.  I also speak from personal experience.

I didn't say it was the only reason it was crashing, hence the comment to use the DVBViewer support forums.

You should learn to read before shooting your mouth off...

Once you have the correct username and password it works fine! - My bad.
