Griga Posted March 29, 2004 Share Posted March 29, 2004 I've uploaded a package to the Service Center, that contains a new Videorecorder Plugin (2.5) and TSPlayer (1.0) release. I start a new thread for it, since the old one got a bit lengthy... you may refer for it if you are interested in the history of this project. Furthermore, the new release contains an English and German ReadMe, that tells you everything you need to know, so you don't have to scrape up the How-To here in the forum anymore. There are some new features... the most important one: The VRPlugin and the TSPlayer together provide unlimited timeshift with MPG and TS recordings. Just start recording, and click the Timeshift Button when you want to watch the stuff... in fact, there is no difference between normal recording and timeshift anymore. If you like, you can even 'timeshift' multiple channels from one transponder at the same time by recording them as transport stream. That means, you can change the channels without missing a second, since - and that is really new - the other ones will wait in the meantime. It requires some GBs on your hard disk, of course... Anyway... the next DVBViewer release will also contain new timeshift features, so that this topic will be covered exhaustively then. So what else... the VRPlugin has a timer of its own now - the functions of the Sleeptimer Plugin have been integrated. You can switch over to manual mode, if the VRPlugin executes a recording, that has been scheduled for it in the DVBViewer. The VRPlugin even can take over all scheduled recordings from the DVBViewer, if you want. When recording as TS, the VRPlugin additionally creates a text file that logs the content (channels, PIDs...). The TSPlayer's user interface has been enhanced considerably - it's more comfortable now. And some more things... please read it in the ReadMe. Well, believe me, it has been a whole lot of work altogether. Since solely writing the damned Readmes took a whole weekend, I was thinking of taking money for the software... but I won't. Instead of that, I want everybody who uses the VRPlugin and the TSPlayer to donate an appropriate amount of money to a welfare group of his choice (or optionally to suffer from bad karma ). I want the creative energy, that has flown into this project, to spread out and benefit a lot of people - especially those who need help. Many thanks to - Crypto, Derrick, Klausing and Oliver for testing and good proposals. - Christian Hackbart, who provided the basic code for video output and the handling of the DVBViewer Filter. - Marfi, who found a solution for a nasty problem with the SkyStar2 hardware - without it TS recording would have been very restricted for many users.
