Changelog DVBViewer Pro 5.3.1



  • Fix: TV Playback: HEVC aspect ratio was not processed correctly.

  • Fix: Playback: The “Disable AV” state after performing the according action was not handled correctly (applies to 5.3.0 and playback with DVBViewer Filter).

  • Change: Playback: The stricter graph building method introduced in 5.3.0 now falls back to the more “tolerant” handling of previous versions instead of displaying an error message if an audio decoder cannot be connected. Please note: User DirectX settings are ignored silently in this case. Please check Settings → Filters to see which DirectShow components are actually used by playback.

  • Add: File Playback: Detection of MP3 in TS files if the audio headers are aligned with the PES packet structure. Applies to playback with the DVBViewer Filter.

  • Fix: Stream Playback: For some file formats (e.g. .mkv) the decoder and video renderer selected in the DirectX options were not used with VODSource as source filter.

  • Change: Stream Playback: If the VOD Filter is not registered the LAV Source is used as replacement if installed.

  • Updated: DVBViewer Filter to version 3.8.1. Fixes issues occurring occasionally if Options → DirectX → DVBViewer Filter → TV/Radio Pre-Format Detection is switched on.

  • Change: Music Options: Restructured.

  • Change: FreeDB Options: Removed. FreeDB lookup setting moved to the Music Options, the FreeDB server settings are now available as tweak (see Tweaker.exe).

  • Change: Recording Service Options: Restructured, prevents useless activation of channel list / favorites list download and Wake On LAN if a local Recording Service instance is selected.

  • Change: Recording Service Wizard: Prevents useless activation of Wake On LAN if a local Recording Service instance is selected.

  • Change: Hardware / Recording Service Options: RTSP (SAT>IP) server detection reworked. It is now performed in a separate background thread so that a missing server response cannot block the UI. Also applies to the Recording Service Wizard.

  • Fix: Recorder: Recording of an inactive / non-existing audio track with "Options -> Recorder -> Auto-split on channel data change" switched on and "All audio tracks" switched off could result in thousands of small files. Now the recorder uses an active audio track in this case.

  • Fix: Recorder: A timer recording assigned to the Audiorecorder Plugin didn't start in playback off state due to repeated access violations.

  • Add: IPTV/RTSP Device: RTP packet reordering. It significantly lowers the probability of drop outs resp. discontinuities, particularly when receiving TV/Radio via WLAN.

  • Change: IPTV Device: The virtual IPTV network device is now based on a different code library and uses much less memory than before.

  • Add: IPTV/RTSP Device: Two tweaks for virtual IPTV/RTSP network devices in the file hardware.xml:

The RecvBuffer entry specifies the size of the receive buffer in kB. The default is 13560 kB (approx. 13 MB).

The ReorderTimeout entry specifies how many milliseconds DVBViewer waits at maximum for missing RTP packets and meanwhile stores subsequent packets for processing them in correct order. The default is 100 ms.

  • Change: Main Window: The View → Window Size percentage now refers to the desktop resp. monitor work area, not to the video resolution anymore (which didn't make much sense). The new percent values are 40%, 50%, 60%, 75% and 100%, the latter representing the maximum achievable window size.

  • Change: Status Bar: Right-clicking it opens the main window context menu (previously disabled). Left-clicking the (textual) format information section opens the DVBViewer Filter property page, if available (previously right-clicking the audio channel icon or signal strength field).

  • Add: Tray Icon: A left-click minimizes DVBViewer if it is visible. A click with the middle mouse button switches audio off/on (mute).

  • Fix: OSD: DVBViewer now prevents a second confirmation dialog as Windows message box in addition to an OSD dialog if actions that require confirmation are performed repeatedly. They are ignored as long as an OSD confirmation dialog is visible (which means they are internally answered with “No”).

  • Fix: OSD: Readability of several default skin (Envy) pages enhanced, missing images on certain HTPC pages added, missing 1088 display fixed.

  • Fix: HbbTV: The AIT Parser did not read all packets.

  • Fix: HbbTV: Playback of playlists could cause damaged links filled with parts of previous URLs (a HbbTV broadcast plugin bug worked-around in DVBViewer).
