    Hello,

    When I'm (re)starting the Recording Service, a popup shows up which says:

    Also, an errors shows up when pressing the 'Live TV' button:

    What to do!?

    Thanks in advance,
    Frank

    I'm not sure why its not there. You could try manually installing it.

    From a command prompt, change into the C:\Program Files\devnz\GBPVR directory. Run "installutil GBPVRRecordingService.exe". Then reboot.

    Installutil may not be in you path. It'll be in a directory like C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework&#92 ;v1.1.4322, so you may need to stick that path in front of the installutil command

    After that, you may also have to do the following.

    Can you try changing into the c:\program files\devnz\gbpvr (or your equiv)
    directory from command prompt and run the following.

    regsvr32 GBPVRWriter.ax
    regsvr32 asyncflt.ax
    regsvr32 ovtool.dll

    So what happened when you used installutil? Either it successfully installed the service, or it gave you an error message.

    Can you see if you have a GBPVRRecordingService.exe.log file (probably in \windows\system32). If so, email it to me.

    So what happens when you try and start the 'GB-PVR Recording Service' using the Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services icon?

    Actually dont worry about GBPVRRecordingService.exe.log, because the last one you sent just arrived. Send me the direct.log and gbpvr.exe.log
