Title: My PIMP "Crashes" on Vista
Post by: Shane on January 24, 2008, 07:26:29 PM
Hi all,

The issue I experience is this: The system will be running fine, padding, recording etc. When I double click on the IceTV icon in the system tray, Windows reports IceTV has crashed and it is looking for a solution. Ice then closes.

When I start it again I can access it fine, no crashes etc - just after a while of running but it crashes again after I minimise it to system tray and try and open it again. I also notice that the app is using quite a large amount of memory (about 90meg after 30mins runtime) - could there be a mem leak here or do I have another problem causing it?

I have the same problem. Are you on Vista 64Bit?
As best I can tell IceTV is responsible for driving up memory faults and driving the disk sub system so hard that recording stutters.
