    Screen Saver causing MVP to reboot

    If I enter the screen saver menu item, or if the screen saver automatically comes on while listening to music, it causes the MVP to reboot.

    Logs attached.

    Thanks!

    Does it crash when used on the PC?

    Does it behave the same with the default Blue skin?

    McBainUK isn't the main problem that you are trying to open the Windows Screen Saver on the MVP?

    Copy the folder \GBPVR\Skin\Blue\ScreenSaverPlugin\Windows Screen Saver\ to \GBPVR\Skin\Community3\ScreenSaverPlugin\Windows Screen Saver

    This should avoid the crash. Also, note that the Windows screensaver will not (ever) be shown on the MVP.

    Ok, that worked, thanks, but I'm not dumb--I changed the screen saver in Config to specifically not use the Windows screen saver, so why was it trying to run it?

    I selected:

    Default Screen Saver to be Now Playing
    Alternative Screen Saver to be Picture Slideshow (with path set)
    Video Screen Saver to be TV Channel

    To be honest I'm not sure. Is "cycle screen savers" enabled in the config app?
