Hi guys
I have just loaded media portal and like what I see, however I am having problems with MP freezing when any channel other than 1, 2, or 3 is selected. I have read a couple of previous posts on this problem and the suggested fix is to use cyberlink for the H.264 decoder and MPV decoder for the MPEG2 codec. I don't have a problem with viewing TV3  so the HD codec i'm using is probably ok(ffdshow video decoder), but the MPEG2 decoder i'm not sure about.I have the MPC-MPEG-2 video decoder(Gabest) selected at present. I do not have MPV available to select in the drop down selection.  What In am trying to get my head around is the fact that channels 1 and 2 are not HD but I can get those and not Maori C4 or 6 or 7 etc? Why is that? I am running XP pro SP3 HV2200. It would seem to me that the MPEG2 decoder does not like those channels.
Any help greatly appreciated
Have uploaded the TV codec settings
