Recording Service Beta

Recommended Posts

Lars_MQ

A new Beta is in the membersarea.

 

Please post followups here

 

in deutsch

 

Installation:

-------------

You need Administrator rights.

 

IMPORTANT:

If you update a older beta of the service FIRST execute in folder COMPlugins the file "unregPlugs.bat" and delete the files "epgstore.dll" and "epgparser.dll"!

 

Extract the content of the zip file into the DVBViewer Pro folder. On first installation start installsvc.bat to register the service with windows. If you want to delete the service please run first uninstallsvc.bat.

 

The DVBViewer Recordingservice is a native windows service. It enables you to record programmed timers by the DVBViewer Pro without DVBViewer Pro.

 

[...]

 

Changes 1.3.0.0

------------------

- Fix: Memoryleak when working together with the web-Plugin.

 

- EPG-Updater integrated. - Settings can be done via the web-interface. Per default deactivated.

You can activate the EPG updater with the webinterface. You can also set the scantime per transponder (Muxx) in seconds.

The EPG-Updater creates a list of available transponders depending on the available devices and tunes them in the background to collect the epg-data.

When activated the updatescan starts 5 minutes after the start of the service. If the used device is needed for a recording the scan is interrupted.

After finishing the EPG-Update then EPG-Updater is deactivated for 12 hours, if the service isn't restarted in this time the process begins all over.

It works with DVB EPG, MHW, MHW+. It does NOT work with Portal-EPG and Sieh-Fern EPG.

 

- Web-Plugin: You can now configure if only radio, tv or both channeltypes are shown in the overview pages.

 

- The Web-Plugin now obeys the "exclude from EPG" from the DVBViewer channeleditor. These channels will not be shown in the overviews.

 

- Several optimizations in the Web-Plugin.

I've uploaded the version 1.3.1 as a Hotfix.

 

Fix: On some cards with CAM Modules the EPG-Updater caused the Service to crash. Sorry about that.

Version 1.4.0 is in the Membersarea.

 

extract from the readme:

The service now contains a cut down version of the webserver for DVBViewer. It shows EPG data and helps to create/change/delete timers.

It is enabled automatically and uses as default Port 80/local host (127.0.0.1). You can use the web configuration to change this or by editing the setup.xml (see next paragraph).

 

Password and user default to "admin" and "admin" (without the "). All settings are saved in the setup.xml of the DVBViewers (sections "WebUser" and "WebGeneral"). The language files are identical with the ones of the Webserver for DVBViewer and have to be placed into the "Language" folder of the DVBViewer.

The html-templates are NOT identical and should be left in the default folder ("svcweb").

 

 

Plugins:

---------

The Webinterface Plugin has been integrated into the service directly. On an Update install please uninstall the plugin by running unregplugs.bat from the COMPlugins folder.

 

 

Changes 1.4.0.0

------------------

- Uptodate with the current DVBViewer Pro release 3.9.2 (including AAC support and diseqc fixes).

- Integrated the Webinterface into the service.

- Fix: Sometimes the end action of a recording was not executed.

- Add: Non executeable timers are marked red in the webinterface.

- Changes: reworked details on the HTML Templates of the Webinterface.

Version 1.4.1.20 of the Recordingservice is in the Membersarea.

 

 

Changes 1.4.1.20

------------------

  • Fix: Several bugs in the html templates.
  • Remove: COM Plugins are not supported anymore.
  • Add: Limited DVBViewer Plugin support:
    DVBViewer Plugins are NOT fully supported. Plugins, like the netstreaming plugin, using the dvb-stream can be used.
    Plugins like epg Plus or other plugins wanting to write/change data or try to show windows are not supported.
    The service exspects the plugins in a different folder structure to avoid complications with the DVBViewer.
    It uses
    DVBViewer Program folder\Plugins\Plugins1


    to

    DVBViewer Program folder\Plugins\Plugins32


    There is no need that all folders exists. But if you want to use them they have to be numbered seamlessly starting with 1. So you could do: Plugins1, Plugins2, Plugins3. This means only 3 recordings running at the same time(!) can use plugins, the rest will not use them.
    The service is recordings orientated, so each simultan recording gets an own PluginXX folder. So you have to be careful and only put one or two plugins per folder otherwise the systemload can get extremly high!
    Hint: If you use the netstreaming plugin remember to assign different ports to each one!

Version 1.4.4.25 of the Recordingservice is in the Membersarea.

 

 

Changes 1.4.4.25

------------------

  • New: Reworked internal recording engine.
    1. You can activate logging of (discontinuity) errors into a seperate log file.
    2. You can activate extended logging of format changes to a seperate log file. This only works if the above logging is activated too. Take notice this function does cost some CPU power.
    3. You can now define the minimal free discspace for recordings. If this border is reached the recording will be stopped to avoid harddisc problems. This check is done per timer/recording folder.

    • New: The configuration is now independent of the DVBViewer configuration file:
      On first start the fitting configuration data of the viewer is copied. After that you can access the settings via Webinterface -> Configuration.
      The configuration files are saved (if possible) in the [user data]\config\ folder for easier backup.
    • New: Premiere Portal EPG support by the EPG Updater.
    • New: EPG-Search completely rewritten.
      In the background regular expressions are used. The normal user does need to care about that and simply inputs his/her search phrase.
      Experts can have a lot of fun with building neat regular expressions :).
      Searches can be saved as Search presets. The automatic search is not implemented yet.
    • Rules for simple search:
      1. It's always a "and" search. This means, all word(part)s have to exist for a match.
      2. Searching is always partial. olympi finds olympia and olympic.
      3. To find whole words or phrase only they have to be enclosed in "".
      4. Placeholders for single chars are marked by ?. th?n finds than and then.
      5. Limits to word beginnings/endings are done by putting a " before or after the word. st?rm" finds storm or thunderstorm. "st?rm finds storm or storming.
      6. If something should be right at the beginning of a field you put a ^ before it. ^bad finds "Bad times" but not "The bad times"
      7. If something should be at the end of a field you put a $ after it. spongebob$ finds "Happy spongebob" but not "Happy spongebob squarepants".

    • Rules for experts:
      http://regexpstudio.com/TRegExpr/Help/RegExp_Syntax.html
    • New: EPG-Search results: Results can be sorted via click on the column headers. Searchresults are limited to about 3000. With the checkboxes the result can be marked for sending to recording.
      Results for which a timer already exists are marked and can not be selected for recording again.
    • Fix: Fixed several performance problems with several thousands of timers.
    • New: Several small enhancements and fixes.
    • New: Added Vista-Away mode. Untestet.

Version 1.4.6 of the Recordingservice is in the Membersarea.

 

 

Changes 1.4.6

------------------

  • Fix: Empty admin passwort for deactivating the logon didn't work anymore.
  • Fix: Housekeeping for EPG Data (every 24 hours all entries older than 24 hours will be deleted).
  • Fix: tune only Timer: Tune only timer now act like recording timer with No File Write activated.
  • Add: Support for FreeSAT EPG on Astra 28.
    FreeSAT EPG is handled like MHW EPG. So you have to activate it in the options and put the correct frequency (11428 h) into the options list.
    Additionally you need the "Complete Tables" file from http://www.rst38.org.uk/vdr/ .
    The files freesat.t1 and freesat.t2 must be extracted into the DVBViewer program folder.
  • Add: External configuration program. Start it with a rightclick on the Systemtray Symbol of the service control app (-> Configure).
    The program stops the service, to have unrestricted access to the setting and parameters. Ongoing recording are recognized an a warning is shown.
  • Add: Hardware Options: Option for reset after Standby/Hibernate.
  • Fix: EPG Updater didn't handle hybrid device correctly.
  • Change: EPG Update is now stopped when a recording start and resumed, after the recording started.
  • Change: USB CI: Handling completely rewritten. Should work with any DVB-Device / USB CI (Hauppauge/Terratec) combination.
  • Fix: XP SP3: after Hibernate (S4) the timers didn't start on some systems.
  • Add: BDA-Hardware: added support for turbosight devices.
  • Add: BDA-Hardware: added support for tevii devices.
  • Add: BDA-Hardware: added support for tongshi devices.
  • Add: BDA-Hardware: added support for dvbworld devices.
  • Add: BDA-Hardware: support for Hauppauge DVB-C hybridcard.
  • Fix: BDA-Hardware: Tuning problems with Yakumo-Sticks.
  • Change: BDA direct tuning mode: In direct tuning mode an internal network provider is now used instead the MS NP. Hopefully this will help with the $FFFFFFF Error on some x64 Vista systems.
  • Add: CI: automatic parental control PIN (Jugendschutz PIN) entry. The PIN must be put into the userdata.xml:
    <section name="CAM">
    <entry name="PIN">1234</entry>
    </section>
  • Fix: Recording: fix for PTS jumps can play havoc with mpeg recordings.
  • New: Tasks
    Task can be added and edited with the Configuration program. There are two kinds of tasks.
    • Internal Tasks:
      Call internal functions of the service: EPG Update Start, EPG Update stop, Standby, Hibernate, Shutdown or automatic timer from the search page.
    • Process Tasks:
      Call external programs (most likely with a commandline argument). As example take TVInfo with the "run" commandline or Abouttime (http://www.arachnoid.com/abouttime/index.html) to set the systemtime via internet. One of the next versions of the XMLTV Import of user Delphi may also work.

    To execute the task go WebInterface -> Timerlist -> Tasks.

Version 1.4.7 of the Recordingservice is in the Membersarea.

 

 

Changes 1.4.7

------------------

  • Fix: Deactivated timers are now taken in account on auto add. No more duplicates.
  • Add: In the recordings details you can now start streaming.
  • Add: Direct streaming of recordings to VLC in LAN. Fast forward and jumping works. Ongoing recording do NOT work.

    For installations with several network cards (IPs) you have to select the one the uPNP AVServer should use. And don't forget to setup your firewall correctly (inclusive UDP 1900).
    Please use this only in a secure LAN. You know the drill: If you use WLAN, make sure only allowed clients can connect and activate WEP/WPA etc.
    IMPORTANT: No transcodierung is done, only pure TS/MPG2 streaming in original quality/size. And the folder Video is empty on purpose :)
    Testet with:
    • Popcorn Hour
    • Nero Showtime 7
    • Cyberlink PowerDVD 8 (crashes on Recordings listing)
    • MS Mediaplayer 11
    • Cidero Mediacontroller
    • xbmc

Version 1.4.7.10 of the Recordingservice is in the Membersarea.

 

Changes 1.4.7.10

------------------

  • Fix: Memoryleak after Standby, if upnp server is activated (serious).
  • Fix: Problems with streaming, if the http server port was set to something other than 80 (serious).
  • Fix: The recording button in the mobile webinterface didn't work on some pages.
  • Fix: Changing the recording folder of existing timers via webinterface didn't work.
  • Add: EPG Parser: Added "slv" as an alternative for "slo".
  • Add: (Service, Configurationprogram) Added optional extended debug logging to the uPNP Server. Only activate it if asked to. This function is purely to gather informations on unknown/new/problematic uPNP clients.
  • Add: (Service, Configurationprogram) Added send alternative description of the uPNP Server. ATM only necessary for the Buffalo Link Theatre. Activate this option only if you use such a device or if the uPNP Server is not found at all by your uPNP Client.
  • Add: (Service, Configurationprogram) Virtual DVB devices (IPTV) can be added via configuration program -> Hardware with the "+" button. The data is not saved into the Usermode.ini anymore, instead the NETWORK.XML is used now. The DVBViewer will implement this also.

TESTVERSION 1.4.7.40 of the Recordingservice is in the Membersarea.

 

This is a test version. There are a lot of changes, new concepts and file formats and files, which are not compatible with the DVBViewer.

You can revert to Version 1.4.7.10 without problems, BUT ALL TIMERS WILL BE LOST!

 

Installation:

Stop the DVB Recording service with the tray Icon (right click -> stop service). Close the Tray Icon Program. Backup the old files (search all the files from the archive in the DVBViewer Program folder and copy them into a backup folder). Extract the files with folders into the DVBViewer program folder.

IMPORTANT: DO remove the file "svcctrl.dll" from the \Plugins folder.

 

 

Changes 1.4.7.40

------------------

  • Add: Support for more FreeSat EPG Transponders.
  • Fix: UPnP: Streaming of recordings didn't work, if HTTP Server port <> 80.
  • Fix: UPnP problems with KISS based players.
  • Fix: Saved EPG Search did ignore a defined time frame after reloading.
  • Fix: Under certain conditions (Vista only) failure of the hardware reset after multiple Standby/Hibernate cycles.
  • Fix: Under certain conditions (Vista only) failure of the check for not connected DVB-device after multiple Standby/Hibernate cycles.
  • Change: Popcorn Hour Handling and UPnP Handling put into one handler. Under certain conditions both handler blocked each other and the Popcorn Hour could not find the service.
  • Update: Updated language files.
  • Add: Web interface: status page: if a DVB-device is not connected is now shown.
  • Add: New DiseqC handling from the Pro beta/ Transedit beta.
  • Add: Options: For UPnP Clients you can now add streaming of DVBSubs and Teletext.
  • Add: EPG Search handle now all 3 fields (Title, event, description) as one (if the fields are selected). Now you can search for phrase which are distributed over the 3 fields. Please note: "Las Vegas" and "5th season" needs a "*" in the non regex Mode (Las Vegas* 5th season) to work.
  • Add: The Service now has an own svcHardware.xml ([userdata folder]\config).
    IMPORTANT! All hardware settings have to be entered new. Don't forget the channel groups (if you use them).
  • Add: Extended hardware management integrated. Now Streaming Clients don't steal each other the DVB-device any more. Recording are always preferred and can override the clients channel selection.
    The Hardware selection strategy is slightly different to the one in the DVBViewer. In the service each client tries to stick to "its" device, even if there would be another device pre tuned to a channel.
  • Add: DVBServer (Unicast) integrated. The configuration is done via the dvbservice options. It nearly the same like the DVBServer (even for the client DVBViewers). If you use the last beta of the DVBViewer, the DVBViewer follow a forced channel change (because of a recording in the service etc.) if possible.

- Add: Timer concept completely reworked.

The DVB Recording Service now uses its own svctimers.xml file ([userdata folder]\config). The Timers.xml of the DVBViewer is not used any more, this means the service does not get any timers programmed in the DVBViewer. Exception: No svctimers.xml is present but a timers.xml is found, in this case the DVBViewer Timers are imported.

Most of the function of the timers were kept. But there are several new timer types now.

 

Recording Timer:

----------------

Under the timer type Recoding Timer are all timer grouped, which need a DVB-device. This type is like the "old" Timer.

It has three subtypes:

 

- Recording:

A normal recording timer.

 

- Tune channel:

This subtype only tunes a channel, no file is written. It is like the "No File Write" option of the "old" Timers. You can use it for EPG Updates of one transponder, MHW, SFI or FreeSat EPG Updates.

 

- Transcoding

This subtype is not implemented for now and is handled like a "Recording".

 

 

The Recording subtype has several additional properties:

* Recording folder:

The recording folder is saved with the timer. Changes in the options only affect timer with recording folder = Auto.

There is a new selection "Auto".

Depending on the setting in the options "Auto" does one of the following:

+ Option 1 (default): check the list from top to bottom and take the first folder with more free space than the predefined trigger value (default 25 GB can be changed in 1 GB steps), if this fails try option 2.

+ Option 2: Take the folder with the most free space.

 

* Recording format:

For each recording the format can be selected separately. Default is defined by in the options.

All known limitations apply (H264 only as TS also a Transponder Dump etc.).

 

* Priority:

Recordings can now have a priority. If two recording with different priorities start at the same time the one with the higher priority is preferred, if there are not enough DVB-devices. A higher priority recording can also stop a lower priority recording to get a device.

 

* Recording filename:

Following place holders can be used (backwards compatible):

 

%year = year

%date = sortable month and day

%time = the time

%station = the channel

%event = the title

%title = the (Sub)Title (if any)

%tshort = the (Sub)Title (if any) shortened to 80 chars.

%m = month

%d = day of month

%h = time hour

%M = time minute

%g = Genre (if any)

%D = Day of week (Mo, Tue etc)

 

Additional you can define subfolders.

Example:

%station\%date_%time_%station_%event

does:

[..]kabel eins\1-13_20-10-06_kabel eins_first strike - jackie chans erstschlag.ts

 

You can use more than one subfolder. The subfolder are generated automatically. You can also use a predefined Folder name...

 

* Audio/Teletext/DVB-Subtitle and PAT/PMT adjustment selection

For each timer you can select which of this options is used for a recording.

 

* Whole Transponder

With this option the whole Transponder is recorded as a TS file.

 

The new Timer types:

---------------------

These new types behave a little bit different than the recording timer.

- The end time is ignored. The timer ends when the task is completed. All "After recording" actions can be used.

- If a Timer could not be executed, because the PC could not be started, the timer will be executed on the next start no matter if the time fits or not.

- These timers do have no channel property. Therefore the timer type is shown in the timer list instead of the channel name.

 

Search Timer:

executes a single Autorecording EPG Search task.

Autosearch timer:

executes a all Autorecording EPG Search task.

 

Process Timer

Allows you to execute external programs like TVInfo, tvxml import etc. The timer uses the existing process task.

IMPORTANT: if a program should be used with this timer, make sure it does shut-down itself after it finishes and it can't show any message boxes. The programs do run in the user context of the recording service and have no possibility for any user interaction.

TESTVERSION 1.4.7.50 of the Recordingservice is in the Membersarea.

 

This is a test version. There are a lot of changes, new concepts and file formats and files, which are not compatible with the DVBViewer.

 

You can revert to Version 1.4.7.10 without problems, BUT ALL TIMERS WILL BE LOST!

Installation

 

 

You need a working DVBViewer Recordingservice 1.4.7.10 installation.

Stop the DVB Recording service with the tray Icon (right click -> stop service). Close the Tray Icon Program. Backup the old files (search all the files from the archive in the DVBViewer Program folder and copy them into a backup folder).

 

IMPORTANT: DO remove the file "svcctrl.dll" from the \Plugins folder.

 

 

 

Changes 1.4.7.50

  • Fix: Timer: The priority setting didn't work under some conditions.
  • Fix: Web interface: Tuning Timer were not accepted on manually adding or changing them due to a error in the template.
  • Fix: UPnP: Changes of the recordings list were not reflected in the UPnP Part.

  • Add: Hardware: Support for Turbosight clones.
  • Add: Hardware: Support for TerraTex XE MK II clones.
  • Fix: Hardware: TT diseqC fix from Griga.
  • Fix: Premiere EPG: The EPG could fill up the whole memory if the channel premiere direct was tuned for a long time.

  • Fix: Service: Sometimes the wakeup timer was set in the past (Vista only) on automatic standby/hibernate.
  • Several functions for DVBViewer Version 4.0.1.10+
    • „Webservice" to get the EPG.
    • „Webservice" to get the recordings list.
    • Broadcast mechanism for broadcasting changes of the timer- and recordings list (for the DVBViewer).

    [*]

    Explanations about the interaction DVB Service ↔ DVBViewer.

     

    To get to recordings list and streaming of recording from the service to a remote DVBViewer working several changes on the recordings folders and database have to be done.

    The following steps are not necessary for a DVBViewer, which is starting from the same folder as the service!

    In the beginning a warning:

     

    Under no circumstances delete duplicate entries in the database, this can occur on incorrectly following the instructions. Do not delete these duplicates via the Web Interface.

    This would result in a data loss of your recordings!

     

    How to (very detailed):

    • First backup of your database folder in the user configuration folder. Also backup the file Service.xml from the folder „config".
    • For each recording folder you need to create a network share which can be used by network clients and the service without password prompt. For explanations on how to create shares and user rights take a look at the windows help or ask Google.
      Please make sure these shares work with the planned clients and the service which does run in a system rights context. Check also if the service can do recordings into the shares.
    • The rebuild the database for each recording there has to be a infofile or fileinfo. If you are not sure about this, just go on. At the end you will see if the info was there. If there are problems we can always restore the backups from step 1.
    • Now we stop the DVBViewer Service with the systemtray program.
    • Open a explorer window and open the „Database" folder in the user configuration folder.
    • Rename the file „TVDatabase.db" to „TVDatabase2.db".
    • Start the Service configuration program via the systemtray program (Menu item Configure).
    • In the recordings options enter the network shares into the recordings folder list and remove the old entries. Make sure they are ordered correctly.
    • Close the configuration program and start the Service again.
    • Open the web interface and select the (empty) recordings page. If the are entries on this page something went wrong and you should check everything carefully, where you went wrong. Just remember the Warning in red above!
    • If the Recordings page is empty, select "refresh db". After that all entry data should be there again. If the page stays empty or there are entries missing please check the network shares and rights again.
      If you only get filename, no channel names and no details you don't have the fileinfo/Infofile and the test is over. Please stop the service and restore the database folder and the service.xml file from the backup.
    • If everything went fine, you now can access the recordings list and recordings with the DVBViewer via network.

IMPORTANT: DO remove the file "svcctrl.dll" from the \Plugins folder.

 

Changes 1.4.7.96

 

  • Fix: DVBViewer Clients: That didn't work out so well. One Client forced other clients to follow him on channel switching, even if there were free devices to use.
    Now the system first tries to find a free card, if the new channel is not on the same transponder and the used device has more than one "user".
  • New: Recording Timer now have a "after recording process task".
    The system does create a process task timer on the fly after the recording did finish. This timer can not be saved and expires after he is canceled or done.
    It inherits the shutdown action of the recording timer. So a Standby or Hibernate action is handed down and gets executed after the process task timer ended.
     
    This thing would be useless without handing the process task timer some data about the recording. For this you can use placeholders in the parameters of the process task. These placeholder are replaced on the fly with the real data, similar to the generation of recording file names.
     
    Example (simplified) parameters for FFMpeg:
     
    -i "{SOURCE_FILE}" -deinterlace -r 25 -vcodec libx264 -maxrate 1500k -acodec libfaac -ab 112k -ar 48000 -ac 2 -title "{TITLE}" -y "{PATH_FILENAME}.mp4"

    Following placeholders possible (CAPITALIZATION IS MANDADORY):
     
    • {FILENAME_EXT} 04-11_20-10-04_RTL 2_Otto The Movie.ts
       

    • {SOURCE_FILE} c:\capture\4-11_20-10-04_RTL 2_Otto The Movie.ts
       

    • {PATH_FILENAME} c:\capture\4-11_20-10-04_RTL 2_Otto The Movie
       

    • {FILENAME} 04-11_20-10-04_RTL 2_Otto The Movie
       

    • {PATH} c:\capture\
       

    • {EXT} .ts
       

    • {CHANNEL} RTL 2
       

    • {TITLE} Otto the big Movie
       

    • {SUBTITLE} Otto does some stuff

    The normal rules for parameters do apply: Paths and filenames need to be enclosed in ", the same applies for text which can contain spaces.

    You have to suppress any user input or message boxes at all costs. There is no user interaction at all.

    Please read the manual of the software in question, if you are having problems.

Changes 1.4.7.110

 

  • Added: Experimental UniCable support according to the EN50494 standard. (What is UniCable? English Deutsch).
     
    Please note: UniCable will only work with TechnoTrend and FireDTV DVB-S/S2 devices. Other device drivers don't provide the means for UniCable support yet. In case of a TechnoTrend device the file ttBdaDrvApi_Dll.dll (optionally installed with DVBViewer Pro) must be present in the program directory.
     
    UniCable support is activated by inserting two lines in the appropriate device section of the file config\svchardware.xml, while the DVBViewer Recording Service is closed.
    The UniCable entries must look like this:
     
    <entry name="Slot">N</entry>
    <entry 	name="SlotFrequency">FFFF</entry>


    where N is the slot number (0..7) and FFFF the slot frequency (intermediate frequency, IF) in MHz on which different transponders are routed to the receiver. Example:
     

    <entry name="Slot">6</entry>
    <entry 	name="SlotFrequency">1980</entry>


    You may find these values on the antenna socket. Please note: On sockets or in manuals the slots may be numbered from 1 to 8. You will have to subtract 1 in this case.
     
    If you want to take part in the UniCable discussion, please join in here. It's a German thread, but you may also post in English.

  • Change: BDA-Devices: The search for the BDA_RECEIVER_COMPONENT fitting for the device to open reworked. In most cases it works without the SkipComponent hack (it is still there but if possible ignored). This should fix the Problems with two or more Twinhan/Technisat/Terratec S2 devices.
  • Add: DVB-S2 Detection of Twinhan/Technisat devices improved.
  • Fix: DVB Server: Problems on channel switching on the same transponder (mostly if a CI is used) fixed.
  • Fix: EPG-Updater: Fix for no new EPG-Updater run was possible, if there where channels with no fitting/free hardware. It does wait at most for 60 minutes and then goes back into idle state.
  • Fix: Recordings without fitting EPG or late arriving EPG where not written to the record DB under some circumstances.
  • Change: DVB-Server: DVBViewer Clients with the same priority can override each other. The control over the CAM/MMI gets the last (non forced) tuning client.

    • Fix: An empty search phrase in an auto search timer caused an error. Empty searches are now ignored.
    • Change: Web skin: Reworked the logo a little.
    • Fix: Improved recording folder calculation: Now the service tries to find any recording working folder before it takes the fall back value.
    • Add: DiseqC: Fixed problems with the locales and floating point notation ("." and ",").
    • Fix: FFMPEG mp3 Transcoding: Due to an error in the logic of the handling only one instance of ffmpeg at a time was active.
    • Add: Raw DiseqC support for KNC1 cards. You must use the dll enclosed in the beta release.
      Attention: The DLL is NOT compatible with the DVBViewer Pro Release Version (4.1.1)!
    • Add: Webserver: Improvements for the IPhone support integrated.
    • Add: UPnP: Recordings: Added a file name view.
    • Change: Away Mode: Improved the handling a bit. (Needs further testing).
    • Fix: In very few cases the were problems with the authentication of the HTTP server.
    • Add: UPnP: Added the mime type (video/mpegts) for recordings.
    • Fix: VCR: Manually creating a timer without description could lead to messed up file names of the recording.
    • Fix: Fixed a conflict in the initialization of the DVB devices by the EPG Updater and the further use by a Streaming Client which needs the CI of the device.
    • Add: The EPG Updater is now shown in the webinterface → Status.
    • Change: CAM support for Twinhan and KNC1 based cards (EXPERIMENTAL!). Some broadcasters send contradicting CA_Info descriptors on program and ES level (Hotbird the polish TVN channels as example), which some CAMs do not handle very well. Now the CA_PMT ignores the descriptors on the ES level if program level descriptors are present. This is not according to the specs, but seems to work. Please report if you have one of the mentioned cards and experience problems with this new handling.
    • Change: VCR: You can activate auto splitting of a recording if the PMT data changes while it is running.
    • Add: Recording options: Added an option to enable auto split on PMT data change.
    • Fix: Some fixes for Unicable support.
    • Fix: Recordings without EPG were not written to the database.
    • Fix: Fixes for Skystar 2 DiseqC.
    • Change: EPG Processing: Fixup for Anxie, RTL and SuperRTL EPG. The viewer tries to map some info from the description to the subtitle.
    • Change: (EIT) EPG parser: optimized the detection of already processed tables.
    • Change: ATSC: EPG scanner and parser completely rewritten. You do need a DVB card which supports "Open whole transponder" and the option must be enabled in the hardware options. Big thanks @antdude for testing.
    • Reworked: The internal EPG handling has been further reworked to optimize the multi language/entry handling.
    • Add: Experimental enhanced DiseqC (without rotor support!) and Unicable support for the Skystar 2 by griga.
