Firstly (and unrelated to the error you're seeing), the DVideoService  
is quite specialised and may not be the service you really expect. I  
suggest you try the SimpleHDVideoService which does DV or HDV and  
behaves a bit more like the normal VideoService that you'd be used to.

I think this error may be fixed by editing your ~/AccessGrid3/Config/ 
preferences file; find the line beginning with "multicast" and change  
its value "False" to "0" (thats a zero, with no quotation marks).
