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

Perhaps this link will help out a bit? There are some good free-codec suggestions in there, although I personally use the PCM6 codec I paid for.
