    DTBAddin 1008 not workin on Win 7x64

    I stole this quote from another poster as its the exact same problem I have: dawsocj (edited)-"Hi there - not sure if anyone else has a problem or not, but I installed (successfully) 1008 onto my new W7 MCE x64 but when I start Media Center, about 5 seconds later, the Addin stops working. I checked the ehexthost_7960 file for logs, but I see only a bunch of dashes on the first line? Any ideas? " I'm using DVRMSToolbox 1.2.2.6 R6 - Early Access & DTBAddin - 1.0.0.8 EA

    My main system is W7 x64 so it will work. Make sure you have logging enabled and check the event log for any problematice entries.

    I had logs enabled, couldnt find anything in event viewer and my ehexthost file (tho there are multiple files) all have the ------------------------ line in them. Clearly, I'm doing something wrong.

    I have the same exact problem. I did a new install and used the 1008 version now skip back and forward does not work. Installed the previous version then it works.

    When i used DTBAddin - 1.0.0.7 (R3), skip back and forward didn't work, it would commercial skip however. With 1.0.0.8, skip back and forward don't work and commercial skip would work if i don't touch the remote. As long as i don't pause, look at program info (basically anything involving the remote)

    Re: DTBAddin 1008 not workin on Win 7x64

     I have the same setup w7 x64, DTB 1.2.2.6 and DTBAddin 1.0.0.8.

    I find that I get the ehexthost log file about 5 seconds after I start Media Center, however the Addin appears to be working fine.  Every time I start Media Center a new log file is generated.

    The ehexthost log file only contains dashes "-" on the first line, there is nothing in the event logs.

    It is just a pain because you end up with numerous ehexthost log files.  I have a scheduled task setup to delete the log files.

    Andy, is this something we can ignore?

    If there's nothing interestingly wrong in the log you can ignore it. You should be able to disable it though.

    Re: DTBAddin 1008 not workin on Win 7x64

    I installed DTBAddin 1009 on w7 x64 and still get the ehexthost log file generated if I shut down/restart the WMC GUI. This log file only contains a line of dashes, I don't know what this means :-)

    If the ehexthost log file is nothing to be concerned with do you have any tips on how we can disable it?

    Also, is there a way to disable the logging of other unimportant errors eg, closed textwriter error in the DTBFWService log and FW wrap error in FWlog files. Or is this something which has to be changed in the code?

    So far DTBAddin 1009 hasn't crashed or logged any errors in the event viewer, beautiful.

    Thanks again.

     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\DvrmsToolbox, LogLevel = "None"

    Thanks I'll give it a try.

    It is currently set to "Important" what other values are valid?

    I don't necessarily want to switch off all error logging just those that can safely be ignored.
