sagetvtranscoder.exe always at 50%

Hi all,
I noticed on my Sage XP server that the Sagetvtranscoder.exe is always using 50% CPU.

I even tried killing it and it comes right back at 50%.
I have an MVP and HD100 on my network, but right now neither of them are playing anything and I still can't kill the process.

I've read some other posts with similar issues, but have not been able to find an answer to the problem.

I'm running Sage 6.3.5

I haven't been around here for a long time, so I'm not current, but I had an issue like that which was related to Zonealarm.

sagetvtranscoder.exe is used for various tasks & there were some fixes since v6.3.5, so try v6.3.10, which was recently released.

- Andy
SageTV Open Source v9 is available.
- Read the SageTV FAQ. Older PDF User's Guides mostly still apply: SageTV V7.0 & SageTV Studio v7.1.
- Hauppauge remote help: 1) Basics/Extending it 2) Replace it 3) Use it w/o needing focus
- HD Extenders: A) FAQs B) URC MX-700 remote setup
