MLServer Crashing PC

Postby dubinvero » Sun Jan 17, 2010 11:27 pm

I installed a new soundcard, the ASUS Xonar Essence, on my XP based HTPC. Now MLServer 3.75 crashes the PC when it attempts to load the MusicLobby 3.75 plug-in. I did not uninstall the previous soundcard which was built into the motherboard. The ASUS soundcard is shown as the default device in Windows Media Player.

MLServer worked perfectly until I added the new soundcard. Any feedback on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

I am providing additional information in case it helps in figuring out the reason for the crashes.

I deleted the Musiclobby plug-in and MLServer loaded with no problems. I was able to use my DVDLobby. I downloaded and installed a new MusicLobby plug-in. Same problem. PC crashes when MLServer tries to load the MusicLobby plug-in.

As always I would greatly appreciate any help in fixing this problem.

Something with your windows default sound card setting.

2nd update. I reinstalled MLServer, MusicLobby and DVDLobby. The only way I can get MLServer to run is to disable the ASUS soundcard. With MLServer running I disabled the motherboard based Realtek and enabled the ASUS. I cannot get MusicLobby to play through the ASUS soundcard. Windows Media Player does play through the ASUS.

I probably should ask the next question in the MusicLobby forum , but for continuity here it is. How do I change the source player from Realtek to ASUS in the MusicLobby plug-in.?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you change those settings in Windows....the Windows default sound card.

The sources tab in the MusicLobby window should display a list of all sound cards in the system. You would select a source then select the sound card and then select the channels in the sound card. You do this for each of the audio sources (zones).

Thanks to DavidL and CinemarDave for your feedback which helped me find the solution.

Although the Asus Xonar Essence soundcard is a new product there were already a number of driver updates. I downloaded the latest driver and MLServer loaded MusicLobby without a problem. I then went into the Windows device manager and disabled the Realtek soundcard and set the ASUS as the default card. When I rebooted, Musiclobby had selected the ASUS card. MusicLobby is now running perfectly.

Thanks again for your help.
