View Full Version : Emulation Mode Won't Autostart

So yes, I still have only the MVP. Since I only have SD sets, and Analog cable, things have been good enough for me.

First, the Alpha dongle from September of 2008 is still the final release for the MVP, correct?

Second, My GBPVR server IP changed. (Extended power outage) When I used to turn on my MVP with the the MVPMC dongle, it would boot straight into emulation mode. Now it doesn't. My server used to be, now it's Now when I power on the MVP, it boots to the MVPMC menu, then if I click the Emulation mode button, it starts right into GBPVR

I've tried to update the config.xml file, and I've tried playing with the menu on the MVPMC dongle screen.

Last question. I'm running Vista. Is the correct MUX for me to be using the "TS MUX". I've been having alot of "skipping" problems. (I'm now running a E8400 DualCore 3Ghz, 4Gb of ram, and 7200RPM SATA drive in SATA mode, I used to run a P4 2.0Ghz 2GB of RAM, 7200RPM IDE drive, and I didn't have this problem.)

Here is my config.xml file MVP section: (My MVP's MAC-000DFE08D263)

Have you seen the 'Advanced Configuration (Optional)' section on this thead (http://forums.nextpvr.com/showthread.php?t=24372)?

The dongle.bin.config file and command line example may be of interest.

mpking you have the right setting in config.xml What you probably need to do is run the Hauppauge dongle and Hauppauge server to store the server IP in flash.

Debugging tips on this. Telnet to you MVP and type this command it should have the server IP

cat /etc/tftp.config

This was discussed a bit when the Sept dongle with the config loading was release http://forums.nextpvr.com/showthread.php?t=38574&highlight=tftp.config

Yes this was very likely the last version of Emulation Mode on the MVP. I don't test it enough to be comfortable with changing it.

Thanks. It still has the old IP in that file. I'll switch dongles, and then switch back.

Any comments on the TSMux?

Sure. It is not relevant to analog cable.
