All channels in a channel group do not open video stream

Recommended Posts

Before and after update to DVBViewer pro and channel scan I have a problem in one channel  group (658). Scan found all channels as before. Channels are in groups and inside that group were  the channels as I expected to be.  But when I try to open any free video stream of those channels, the screen is black and also no audio. Only the logo of the channel is visible. At that time on that channel is a tv-program going on. EGP information  is also missing but that is normal in some other channels in other channel groups. DVBViewer Media Server recording service is not on.

All other 4 groups worked properly. Might in that group exist some kind limitations against pc tv-cards? Most of those channels are free and popular.

Details: Technisat pci tv-card, DVB-T Europe/Video/group 658

As far I understood what I have to send because of different language I took 2 pictures about the page where I found words DVBViewer filter.



Also support.zip is enclosed.

The DVBViewer.log from your support.zip shows no errors. It doesn't look like a problem in DVBViewer.


Unfortunately your screenshots don't show the DVBViewer Filter property page, because you did not follow the instructions (select the Settings -> Filters -> DVB Source menu item).


For screenshots you don't need a camera. Alt + PrtScn copies a picture of the active (foreground) window to the Windows clipboard, so you can paste it in MS Paint (or other programs like IrfanView), save it as .png or .jpg image and upload it to the forum.

Thank you for your answer.

I had problems finding right pages in my language version of The path seems not to be same as in English version. Your adviced the path: Settings – Filters – DVB Source menu. My version shows  Settings (Asetukset) see picture  1 settings valikko. After settings I have not choice Filters, see picture. I think there is 2 possible choices Shader or Valinnat. If I open Shader (English translation shadow I guess) see picture 2 Shader valikko you see that this is not the right path to filters. Then the choice Valinnat, see picture 3 valinnat valikko. The only place you find DVB filter is under Direct X, see picture 4 dvb filter alavalikko. In my earlier mail I sent 2 pictures from  the same menu. This picture is the 3rd which was missing.  Have you any idea to find right page from my language version?

Also as enclosure a new picture, see picture 5 virheilmoitus nelonen from a missing channel with error message: source filter could not be loaded. I send that picture in my next mail becuse of limited file size in one mail.

I can't read the text on your screenshots. Obviously our communication doesn't work. It would be much easier if you would switch DVBViewer to English (see Settings -> Options -> General (first page from the top) -> Language.

And why you didn't find the menu entry: What Griga wrote "Settings -> Filters -> DVB Source menu item" is not meant from main menu but from popup menu after right mouse click inside the video window.


To get back space for attachments here you can click on your user name top right of this forum, select "My Attachments" and delete the screenshots above as they don't help anyway.

I changed language to english as you adviced. The menu structure in english seems to be same. Settings submenu doesn't have such choice as Filter.

As I wrote above: NOT from main menu. Point your mouse in the middle of the video window and do a right mouse click - Voila!


EDIT: I was wrong, it also should be present in main menu. A current support.zip is needed for Griga to investigate the issue.

Settings -> Filters appears in the main menu and the context menu, so it shouldn't make a difference where you look it up.


A missing Filters menu means that DVBViewer did not build the chain of playback components, e.g. in playback off state. However, I cannot figure out how this can happen after selecting a channel. Here even a pure data channel without video and audio creates at least one entry in the Filters menu.


Unfortunately the support.zip that you had attached above is not available anymore. Are you using the HbbTV Add-On for DVBViewer?

There seems to be some confusion caused by a very old DVBViewer Demo version that is still installed (?). It looks like the full version 7.0.2 has been installed in the directory of this demo version (F:\Program Files\DVBViewer Demo\). This should not happen.


Why is your Program Files Folder on drive F:, not on C:?



  • Make a backup of your configuration folder (C:\ProgramData\CMUV\DVBViewerDemo).
  • Uninstall the old Demo version and the DVBViewer full version completely, including all settings, except your user data (password, key file). Also delete the F:\Program Files\DVBViewer Demo\\Program Files\DVBViewer Demo directory, if something is left.
  • Re-install the current DVBViewer full version 7.0.2 to it's standard directoy C:\(Program Files\DVBViewer (or F:, if you have a special reason for it, but be aware of the fact that this is non-standard).
  • After everything is done, you can copy your channel list and favourites list (channels.dat, favourites.xml, ChannelsURL.ini if present) from the configuration folder backup to the new configuration folder, so you don't have to scan and sort the channels again.
