DVBViewer Pro 3.6.2.xx Beta


Recommended Posts

In the Betasection of the Membersarea is a new beta of the DVBViewer Pro.


This version has some major changes in the CI area, so don't use it as a produktion system. This is defenitly a beta!



You need a working DVBViewer Pro Installation. Make a duplicate of the DVBViewer folder and extract the beta into the duplicate folder. Make a Backup of your datafolder. If you don't know where your data folder resides DO NOT USE THE BETA. It is for advanced users only and not suitable for beginners. ;)


The best solution, to make sure no data is lost: Work as Admin and use Usermode 0. If you use Vista you are used to living at the edge and with danger so don't worry about your data, usermode 0 won't work for you. :wacko:


If you own a DVB-S2 device: First open the hardware options in DVBViewer and check if the DVB-S2 checkbox for the DVB-S2 device is checked. If not please do so manually or do a manual rescan of the devices.


There is another new option "Send only encrypted channels to CI" which might be handy: If you experience problems or discontinuities while tuning with a CAM device, try checking / unchecking this option.


Please post all reports to the english or deutsch beta forum.


Version BETA 3.6.2


[*]Add: MMI support for FireDTV. Thanks @ www.digital-everywhere.com

If you encounter problems please copy the "FiresatApi.dll" file from the firedtv folder into the DVBViewer folder.

[*]Add: Hardware Options: Added a "Send only encrypted channels to CI", if you experience problems with this release try checking this option and please report back with Device and CAM-Type.

A little soon after the last beta, but there are some things which need testing. :)

[*]Add: Mainwindow: Added "Recording statistic window" menu item.


[*]Add: Actions.ini: Added "Recording statistic window" entry.

[*]Fix: Signaldisplay: Fixed no signal display on some cards introduced last beta. Reverted to old code.



The DVBServer is included with the updated hardware management of this beta.

It should with this beta now be possible to scan channels via network. This

feature is still a little experimental, so handle with care.
