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

 

This is a beta! So don't use it as a production system.

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. :bye:

 

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

 

The beta is meant for users who are willing to improve the DVBViewer Pro by testing the below listed changes and reporting success or failure.

In case of FAILURE the report MUST include

- the exact steps to reproduce the problem.

- the support.zip and other relevant data.

Version 4.2 BETA

expires 14.07.2009

 

  • Fix: EPG HTML Export: Fixed several problems and bugs.
  • Change: EPG Processing: Fixup for Anxie, RTL and SuperRTL EPG. The viewer tries to map some info from the description to the subtitle.
  • Change: Wiki links: Depending on the selected language the german or english wiki link is shown in the help menu.
  • Add: New graphics for the Wizard made by rago.
  • Fix: The brightness setting was reset if started with -c parameter.
  • Fix: Blu-ray was not started correctly from OSD Videos
  • Fix: Popup channel list did not focus the correct channel sometimes.
  • Update: Some German language file updated.
  • Fix: Several fixes in the translation code to avoid problems on faulty language files.
  • Fix: The Popup channellist closes if you leave the window to the right side.
  • Fix: Some fixes for Unicable support.
  • Fix: Recordings without EPG were not written to the database.
  • Fix: Fixes for Skystar 2 Diseqc WDM.
  • Fix: OSD-Slideshow: The pictures should now keep their aspect ratio.
  • Removed: OSD-Teletext mouse support removed.
  • Change: OSD-Teletext: Now always in 4:3 ratio.
  • Fix: OSD-Teletext: Several small fixes and changes.
  • Change: MiniEPG preview: OSD-Up/Down browses the channels, left right the time, OSD-OK switches to the channel.
    Ch+/ch- and Fav+/Fav- does switch the channel at once now. You can revert back to the old behavior in the options.
  • Add: TV + Radio options: Added a option to enable/disable the new MiniEPG behavior.
  • Change: The OSD Image dialogue keeps the aspect ratio of the image.
  • Fix: ATSC channel scan: fixed the problem of missing channel names for ATSC channels.
  • 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.
  • Change: Channel auto update: change the auto update method to the one used for auto splitting recordings.
  • Fix: Plugins: Fixed a problem on channel change with additional graph rebuild.
  • Change: If the selected/default recording folder is not found the DVBViewer tries all folders in the recording folder list and takes the first one, which can be used. If no folder was found the default user/public video folder is used.
  • Change: Data transfer from the service (timer, recordings, EPG lists) can be compressed now, if the service supports it.
  • Fix: OSD: for channels with mono audio the wrong audio format image was shown.
  • Change: Channel list: The channel names are now shown with a charset based on the user locales. Thanks @ter9999.
  • Change: Chinese EPG should show now correctly everywhere (OSD/EPG window). Big Thanks @ter9999 for testing. These changes should also affect other non latin based languages.
  • Change: CAM support for Twinhan and KNC1 based cards (EXPERIMENTAL!). Some broadcasters send contradicting CA_Info descriptors on program and ES level, which some CAMs do not handle very well (Hotbird the polish TVN channels as example). 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.
  • Fix: ATSC AC3 detection. Some broadcaster use a wrong formated registration descriptor for the AC3 Audio ES causing the DVBViewer not to recognize it as an audio stream.

 

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

Hotfix 4.2.0.1 is in the membersarea.

 

Fix:

Somehow a codeline went missing, causing the DVBViewer to select the wrong recordingfolder, if no folder was set for the timer.

 

Please do redownload this important fix. Sorry about this. :bye:

  • Fix: ATSC: Channel scan works correct now. Big thanks @antdude for testing.

Version 4.2.0.21 BETA

expires 03.08.2009

 

  • Scanwindow
    • Fix: The "updated channels" display is now reset on scan start.
    • Fix: The heading in the info area did not use the default charset.
    • Add: Inactive channels with entries only in the SDT can be added. You have to disable the "Active channels only" Option.
    • Some changes in the handling.
      • If an existing root folder is selected the channels already present are updated and new ones are added. You can disable the adding of new found channels by enabling "Update only".
      • If you enter a new root folder or leave it empty all channels are added as new to the new root folder. If the root folder name is empty a unique name for the root folder is generated.
      • The display in the lower area now shows the count of the new found channels and updated channels.

      [*]Add: "In-depth search": If this option is enabled the scanner also examines the NIT and can add new transponders or update existing one. This option takes a little longer than a normal scan.

      Requirements:

      • A transponder list with at least one valid frequency entry is selected.
      • The whole frequency range (Start/End frequency) must be enabled.
      • Works only with "Scan Range"
      • Not available for ATSC or IPTV.
      • The new found transponders are not saved.

      If you need more influence on the procedure please use transedit.

    [*]Channel list editor

    • Removed: The button to clear the whole channel list. Please use the right click context menu if you need this function.
    • Reworked: The channel details have been reworked and several parameters have been added.
    • Fix: The DiseqC parameter for root entries were sometimes messed up.
    • Add: Import of channels.dat and channel ini files per drag'n'drop into the window.
    • Fix: Fixed some minor display problems.

    [*]OSD

    • Fix: Recordings view: fixed some problems with non ANSI languages.
    • Fix: Slideshow: The slide show wasn't stopped on switching to the last channel.
    • Fix: If delayed channel switching was active and the MiniEPG was closed before the switching time, the viewer changed to channel 0.
    • Add: The Instant recording popup menu is also shown in the OSD if the record button on the remote or keyboard is pressed. If you press the key again while the menu is visible it closes without any action (toggle).
    • Add: MiniEPG: The sky select channels menu (if available) can be opened from the MiniEPG via OSD-Green.
    • Fix: Sky select channels (and sport etc) menu: The menu shows the channel names and the times instead the SID and the times (they have changed it somehow).

    [*]Unsorted

    • Fix: Recording and Statistic window: fixed some problems with Non ANSI display.
    • Fix: EPG Window: fixed some problems with Non ANSI display.
    • Add: Instant recording popup menu: Added the functions stop after current program and stop after next program. The items are only available if there is EPG present.
    • Reworked: The internal EPG handling has been further reworked to optimize the multi language/entry handling.
    • Several more preparations for Unicode support
    • Fix: Removed the entries "channel list editor" and "last channel" from the popup channel list context menu.
    • Fix: COM: the #volume tag was not set on startup.
    • Add: Experimental enhanced DiseqC (without rotor support!) and Unicable support for the Skystar 2 by griga.
    • Fix: Channel Auto Update for the main playback chocked on PMT=0 in the channel data.
    • Add: If the PC goes into the away mode the graph of the main playback is shutdown and the Viewer tells the system it can go to sleep, if wants needs to. (Needs further testing.)
    • Add: The DVBViewer sets now the away mode when it is recording. (Needs further testing)
    • Fix: Shared LNB: Didn't work correctly if a recording was active.
    • Change: Several changes to make the away mode work if the DVBViewer and the recording service are on the same PC. The hibernate and Shutdown action in the DVBViewer are rooted to the Standby action if the recording service is recording. This puts the PC into the away mode. (Needs the 1.5.0.20+ beta of the recording service)
    • Add: ISO Images: Added support for Virtual Clonedrive. Works the same as Daemon tools, but you have to select then VCDMount.exe instead of the Daemon.exe in the options.
    • Several corrections and optimizations.
    • Language files updated.

    [*]Timeshift

    • Add: Timeshift: It is now possible to start a recording in timeshift mode. The timeshift timer converts the timeshift from the current shown timeshift position on to a "normal" recording file. Exception: The actual timeshift position = LiveTV (at the very end of the timeshift buffer) in this case a normal instant timer is started.
      • The conversion runs as fast as possible till it reaches the end of the timeshift buffer. If the end is reached the data is converted as soon as it arrives in the timeshift buffer.
      • It is a real timer. All settings (format etc) apply. Exception: Only the current audio track is recorded (timeshift does only buffer the current audio track).
      • If timeshift is stopped the timer is stopped.
      • If a timeshift timer is active you get a warning on channel switching, even if the option is deactivated. Channel switching stops timeshift → timer stops.
      • If available the EPG data corresponding to the timeshift time is used for the recording.
      • The instant recording popup menu works also for timeshift timers. Notice: the times apply to the current time not the timeshifted time.
      • The timeshift timers are visible in all the timer lists.
      • The timeshift timers are never saved into the timers.xml.
