Any ideas on this? Is there a way to globally delete all plug-ins?

UPDATE: Never mind - I eventually was able to uninstall all plug-ins, but some took multiple attempts to do so. Not sure why.
My guess is the properties file keeps settings for the plugins but the files for those plugins were not copied as well so the system was confused.

Glad you worked it out.

I'm pretty sure I did not manually add them before. Are these new registry entries for 9.2.1?

Have we considered this occurs in users who upgrade, rather than who do a completely new install?

Unfortunately, I don't have an easy way of rolling back to check my registry entries prior to the 9.2.1 upgrade.

EDIT: Actually I do have a way. On my server (no issues), the EnableSageTVStreamDemux entry did exist, but the AlwaysSwapforAC3Filter did not.
EDIT2: On the client (the one that errored), both did already exist, and both were set to 1.

Copying the main .properties file is never a good idea. I always recommend just copying the wiz.bin and then the properties files for the extenders.

I do this as well, but then I will compare the new and old properties files side by side and manually copy over some properties. For example I spent a lot of time configuring the Malore menus the way I like, so I will copy over those properties by hand.

This is where it would be nice to have a way to export and import some settings. I guess some plugins like Gemstone handle this.

After cleaning up the SageTV-9.2.1-64 bit plugin mess (from copying, I noticed that the original 32 bit file had a lot of lines starting with /sagetv_core_plugins/ but the 64 bit file does not have any - would deleting these lines out of the 32 bit help to cleanly remove the plugins and make copying less of a problem?

More Info: At this point, I have only re-installed the Comskip and Comskip GUI plugins into 64 bit SageTV
