Hi, I have been using win7mce for several months now and have had no problems until thursday night. I am constantly getting a "no tv signal error" when recording any mediaworks channels only. ie: TV3, TV+1 and C4. I can be watching tv2 and have a scheduled recording on TV3. It will then try to record the programme and crash with the above error. It appears to only be mediawork channels.

I have the following tv tunners and am watching Freeview HD - 1 x Hauppauge HVR-2200 for Freeview HD
1 x Hauppauge HVR-3000 for Sky Tv via S-Video

Any ideas to solve this would be much appreciated. I have searched google to no avail

presumably you've tried retuning and/or reloading the drivers?

You say it's the media works channels...but how do you know? Have you tried watching 3 and recording 2? What about recording both 1 and 2? Sounds like it's lost one of the tuners maybe.

My HVR-2200 sometimes has a habit of going 'missing in action' if I do a restart rather than a full shutdown then start-up.  Have a look in the device manager to make sure it is present.
