Hallo, ich habe Windows10 64-bit (build 1803)installiert. Auf dem PC läuft auch der DVBViewer Pro ordnungsgemäß und korrekt. Gestern habe ich auf das Build 1809 upgedatet. Wenn ich jetzt den
DVBViewer Pro 6.02 aufrufe, erhalte ich folgende Meldung: Exception EAccessViolation in module
DVBViewer.exe at 0027CB03. Access violation at address 0067CB03 in modules 'DVBViewer.exe'. Read of
Auch nach einer Deinstallation und Neuinstallation des DVBViewer blieb der Fehler.(incl. Neustart etc.) Eine
Demo-Installation des Programms zeigte beim Programmstart nach der Installation den gleichen Fehler.
Jetzt habe ich wieder auf Build 1803 downgedatet, und DVBViewer läuft sofort problemlos. Was ist der
Grund? Ich möchte schon das neue Build 1809 haben. Meiner Meinung nach kann es also nur am Update

* Sorry for poor English. I'm not a native speaker.
Recently, I made a ATSC stream server w/ DVBViewer Media Server.
Now I can get TV streams with Kodi/DVBViewer Pro, but can't record.
1st pic is the Timer Recordings table. The timer looks like well listed, but as you see, webinterface told me that it never written streams to a storage.(2nd pic)
And svcdebug.log said that Process(DVBVservice.exe) has Process Access Violation Error!(3rd pic, look red lines).
So... what can I do for clear this error? It makes me crazy...
beim DVBViewer 6.0.2 fiel mir eben folgendes auf, schätze ist ein Bug:
Wenn ich bei "Ansicht" -> "Videofenster 1" (Rahmen & Leisten angezeigt, immer im Vordergrund) ausgewählt habe, kann ich mit # zwischen Videofenster 1 und 2 wechseln.
Wenn Videofenster 1 aktiv ist, kann ich auch in Vollbild und wieder zurück wechseln und danach mit # zwischen Videofenster 1 und 2 wechseln.
Sobald ich im Modus Videofenster 2 einmal ins Vollbild und zurück gewechselt habe und mit # zwischen den Videofenstern wechsle, wird stattdessen zwischen Videofenster 2 und Vollbild gewechselt.
Erst nachdem ich über das Kontexmenü -> "Ansicht" -> "Videofenster 1" gehe, kann ich mit der #-Taste wieder zwischen den beiden Videofenstermodi wechseln.
ich bin seit einigen Jahren Nutzer dieser Software und habe Heute ein Update installiert (5.5.2 zu 184.108.40.206), weil seit Kurzem das Programm aus ungeklärten Gründen stecken blieb und der PC komplett neu gestartet werden musste.
Zu meinen eigentlichen Problemen:
Die Soft läuft auf einem PC mit OS win10Pro und der Technisat Skystar 2 Express HD mit drei angeschlossenen Monitoren. Er hat eigentlich gar nichts zu tun, als TV wieder zu geben. Mein Arbeitsrechner ist ein weiterer PC, so dass mich die plötzlichen Systemabstürze schon verwundert haben.
Nach dem Update auf die aktuelle Version startet nun das Programm über die Autostart - Funktion von Windows 10 Pro nicht mehr auf dem zuletzt vorgegeben Monitor, sondern immer nur auf dem Monitor, der auch als primär ausgewiesen ist.
Wenn ich aber das Programm nicht im Vollbildmodus nutze und es auf einen erweiterten Monitor ausführe und dann schließe, merkt sich DVBViewer diese Konfiguration und öffnet sich auch wieder auf dem Monitor in der Screengröße, auf dem es zuletzt gelaufen ist.
Das Funktioniert mit der Option "Im Vollbild starten" nach dem Update nicht mehr, egal wie ich es anstelle. Ist das ein Bug oder bin ich zu doof?
Ich nutze die original Fernbedienung der Technisat express Karte. Durch das Update erhoffte ich mir die Fehlerbeseitigung, dass die Fernbedienung nicht richtig funzt. Sie reagiert nicht, wenn der PC neu gestartet wird, jedoch funzt einwandfrei, wenn ich einen NEUSTART des PC ausführe!??
Was ist das denn? Ich habe irgendwie den Eindruck, dass ein Dienst beim Einschalten des PC nicht geladen wird, den er aber lädt, wenn ich den PC neu starte...wie kann das sein?
Das Update brachte hinsichtlich dieses Problems keine Besserung und in den Einstellungen eine andere FB einrichten hat auch nicht geklappt. Wer kann mir hier weiter helfen? ich habe keine Ahnung mehr, worin die Probleme begründet sind und hier im Forum hatte insbesondere mein FB-Problem auch noch niemand - jedenfalls habe ich dazu nix finden können!
Danke und Gruß
Today we have released a new version (DVBViewer Pro 6.0.0):
In Memoriam - Lars Gehre
Change Log DVBViewer Pro 6.0.0
Please take note of the following important changes before installing DVBViewer Pro 6.0:
Removed: Unicast Network Device: This out-dated way of connecting to the Recording Service is not available anymore. Its functionality is now fully covered by RTSP (Sat>IP) Network Devices that can be used as replacement. If Unicast Network Devices are essential for some reason please stay with Recording Service 1.33.2 beta and DVBViewer Pro 5.6.4.
Updated: Key Tool (KeyTool.exe) to version 1.1. It allows to order a Media Server license (more about it here) and to enter the password that you will receive after having purchased it.
Added: Channel List: DVBViewer Pro 6.0 provides an easy way to try the new streaming capabilities that allow to store Internet TV/Radio channels in the channel list.
Click TV/Radio → Reception Settings in the main menu.
Select “TS Stream” in the list of available reception types.
Click the Load Channel List button and select one of the sample lists from the drop-down menu.
Please note that the channels contained in German (ger) channel lists may not be receivable outside of Germany due to geo-blocking. In other countries you may rather want to try the international (int) lists. Please also note that URLs of channels belonging to the new TS Stream (Live Stream) tuner type are stored in an additional file ChannelsURL.ini that is located in the configuration folder. A backup or copy of a channel list containing TS Stream entries requires saving the files channels.dat and ChannelsURL.ini together. Without the additional file or after loading/saving the file channels.dat with previous DVBViewer Pro / Recording Service versions all TS Stream channel list entries are lost!
The new feature is only usable with DVBViewer Pro 6.0 (stand alone) or in combination with the DVBViewer Media Server 2.0 and later. Please take care that a channel list containing TS Stream entries is not accessed by older DVBViewer Pro / Recording Service versions.
If you are using Xepg for importing EPG data, please update to Xepg 0.7.0.0 that complies with the changed EPG handling in DVBViewer Pro 6.0 / DVBViewer Media Server 2.0 and supports assigning EPG data to internet channels belonging to the new TS Stream tuner type. Please note that Xepg 0.7.0.0 must not be used with older Recording Service / DVBViewer versions (and older Xepg versions not with DVBViewer Pro 6.0 / Media Server 2.0).
Since it is not possible to describe all aspects of the new TS Stream tuner type in the following log, a series of articles dealing with the details will soon be published in the forum.
Added: Streaming: Handling of URL based entries in the channel list, provided the source delivers a transport stream (TS) or something that DVBViewer can convert to a transport stream (“TS Stream” tuner type). The “Channel List” section (see below) describes how such channels can be added to the channel list. The following stream / URL types are supported:
HTTP carrying a transport stream, as for example used by broadcasters providing TV streams via HbbTV.
HLS (HTTP Live Streaming) based on M3U8 playlists and transport stream segments. This format has been introduced by Apple and is frequently used for Internet TV. AES 128 encrypted streams are supported if the provider allows to access the key.
UDP/RTP multicast and unicast carrying a transport stream, similar to DVB IPTV as already supported by previous DVBViewer versions. Multicast URLs may specify a source IP and the IP of the local network adapter (NIC) in the following way: rtp://[Source-IP@]Multicast-IP:Port[/Adapter-IP]. The parts in square brackets are optional.
RTSP carrying a Sat>IP compliant transport stream letting DVBViewer work as a Sat>IP thin client that uses static RTSP URLs as provided by a some Sat>IP servers as M3U playlist (e.g. by the DVBViewer Media Server as RTSP channel list). However, Sat>IP with a virtual RTSP Network Device should be preferred, if possible, since it is more effective.
HTTP containing AAC or MP3 audio (internet radio). Internally the streams are converted to transport streams. Metadata like artist and title appears as EPG data, if available.
Paths of local TS, MP2, MP3 and AAC files which are handled “as if broadcasted live”.
Change: Stream/URL Playback: The handling/playback of URLs originating from Playback → Open URL, Playback → Open UPnP, from the playlist and other sources has been reworked and enhanced in the following way:
Everything that is detected as live stream containing a transport stream or MP3/AAC audio (like HLS and internet radio) is played as channel, including the possibility to use recording, timeshift and PiP. However, there are drawbacks resulting from such streams not being contained in the channel list. So the URLs should rather be added as TS Stream tuner type entries to the channel list.
All URLs referencing a remote file with a media format that the DVBViewer Filter can cope with are played by using it. This includes the capability to handle growing files correctly (particularly ongoing recordings).
All URLs referencing a remote file originating from HbbTV (mostly MP4) are handled by the VOD Source Filter. It has been reworked for this purpose and preferably cooperates with the LAV Splitter for playback. Please make sure that the LAV Filters are installed.
All URLs not covered by the points above are handled by the LAV Source Filter, if available (recommended), otherwise by standard Windows DirectShow mechanisms.
Added: Stream/URL Playback: Support for HTTPS live streams (see first point above). For this purpose the OpenSSL files libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll are installed.
Added: Stream/URL Playback: URLs can now be passed as command line parameters to DVBViewer (in the same way as file paths).
Added: Hardware Options: Possibility to add virtual TS Stream Devices to the device list in order to change the default settings. By default TS stream devices are created dynamically on demand without showing up in the device list. Furthermore, in order to save network bandwidth, DVBViewer only creates new TS Stream devices dynamically if there is no alternative like taking the device away from a lower priority task for a high priority task. So if you don't want a TS Stream timer recording to stop playback of a different TS Stream, just add enough TS Stream devices to the device list. DVBViewer regards them as “available in any case”.
Added: Hardware Options: Settings dialog for virtual TS Stream Devices. It allows to specify the connection timeout and receive buffer size, the amount of pre-read data (before playback starts), a “per device” HLS data rate limitation and the network interface card / adapter over which UDP / RTP streams shall be received.
Added: Channel Editor: Import (also by drag & drop) and export of M3U playlists containing TS Stream URLs. DVBViewer supports reading / storing the category of the channels in a format used by the Kodi IPTV Simple Client add-on. Please note that in case of M3U imports DVBViewer does not know the type of the contained streams, particularly whether they are video or audio streams. You may preselect whether they are imported as video or audio by selecting a video or audio node (or one of their sub-nodes) before importing the file. Wrongly assigned channels are automatically moved to the matching category when they are played for the first time.
Added: Channel Editor: Export of DVB IPTV channels as M3U channel list, so they can be re-imported as TS Stream channels for conversion (see above). The new TS Stream tuner type integrates DVB IPTV (which was already supported by previous DVBViewer versions) and provides a more convenient handling.
Added: Channel Editor: Means for manually adding / editing TS Stream channel list entries (including their URLs): For new TS Stream entries click New → TS Stream on the Channel Data page. Enter the address and the channel name and click Add. All other data is detected automatically when the channel is played for the first time.
Added: Channel Editor: Special streaming settings and functions on the Channel Data page if a TS Stream entry is selected:
Channel Name button: Only applies to internet radio. Automatically detects the channel name belonging to a given address and copies it to the name input field if the channel provides Shoutcast metadata.
Direct Address button: Applies to internet radio and simple HTTP streams containing a transport stream. Detects the direct stream address without redirections or playlist references and copies it to the address input field. The direct stream address speeds up channel switching.
Remove clock reference / Ignore PTS discontinuities checkboxes: Applies to HLS and simple HTTP streams containing a transport stream. May help to fix issues caused by wrong time stamps in the stream.
Time Offset input field: Applies to HLS. Some channels allow to “timeshift” streams to the past. The Time Offset input field enables creating channel list entries like “ZDF 30 minutes ago”. Please note that in case of HLS playback the main window control bar shows the current position in / the total duration of the timeshift buffer provided by the HLS server. However, if DVBViewer timeshift is active the control bar shows the values resulting from the DVBViewer timeshift buffer.
Max. Rate input field: Applies to HLS. Some channels allow to select streams with different data rates affecting the video resolution and quality. The Max. Rate input fields enables to limit the data rate. It lets DVBViewer select a stream with a data rate below the specified value, if possible. The default is 0 (= unlimited, highest possible quality). Please note that the hardware options → TS Stream Device settings provide a “per device” HLS data rate limitation that is superseded by the per channel setting if not zero.
Added: Channel Search: Possibility to perform a TS Stream channel search based on M3U lists that are handled as transponder lists if they are stored in the Transponders sub-directory of the configuration folder. In contrast to direct M3U import (see above) scanning only adds working entries to the channel list, saves the auto-detection of channel data on first tuning and assigns the channels to the correct video/audio category.
Fix: Channel Search: The channel search did not detect DVB-T2 and sub-streams (MPLP) correctly with DVB-T devices that support auto-detection (e.g. Digital Devices, DVBSky).
Added: Channel Search: Transliteration of channel and provider names with Cyrillic and Greek letters to Latin if the local character set does not contain such letters (since the channel list does not use Unicode yet, see here).
Change: Channel Search: Duplicate BBC channels appearing on Astra 28° East without assigned Freesat EPG and MHEG5 are dropped automatically.
Added: Channel Editor: The per-category settings (if a category is selected) can now be applied to a multi-selection of categories. The same applies to the “Set Channel Group” sub-menu in the context menu of the tree view.
Changed: Channel Editor: The “New DVB-S” button on the Reception Settings page has been replaced by a permanent generic DVB-S entry in the list of the available reception types (provided a DVB-S device is present). It can be used to define a new DVB-S reception type for another satellite position.
Added; Channel Editor: “Load Channel List” button on the Reception Settings page. It allows to select and load one of the DVBViewer default channel lists if available for the selected reception type (Astra 19/23/28° East and Hotbird 13° East for DVB-S, additionally Internet TV/Radio for the TS Stream reception type). Please note: DiSEqC should be set up correctly if necessary before loading a satellite channel list because it is adjusted to the DiSEqC settings.
Change/Added: Channel List Window: The former buttons have been replaced by a tool bar providing the following functions: “Channel Editor”, “Last Channel”, “Add to Favourites”, “Only Favourites on/off”, “Only TV on/off”, “Only Radio on/off”, thus making the main filter functions more accessible. The change also applies to the popup channel list in the main window and the channel lists embedded in the EPG- and the Timer Recordings window.
Added: Media Server Options: “Download Channels Now” button for getting the channel list from a remote DVBViewer Media Server (including channels.dat, ChannelsURL.ini and DiSEqC.xml). It can be undone with the Reload function in the Channel editor.
Main Window & OSD
Change/Added: Main Window: The handling of the Main Window views (“Hide All”, Full Screen”...) has been completely reorganized and enhanced in several respects. Each active view can be configured independently from the others with the options in the lower menu part (if available for the view) and the window position and size. Clicking the currently active view lets DVBViewer return to the previous view.
Change: Main Window: The “View → Hide All” menu item has been renamed to “Video Window 2”. By default it looks like the former “Hide All” view (without title-, menu-, tool- and status bar), but can be configured independently from the normal view, which means, it can be equipped with the mentioned bars.
Added: Main Window: “View → Video Window 1” menu item. It switches over to the “normal” view that by default contains a title-, menu-, tool- and status bar. However, this view can also be configured in different ways.
Added: Main Window: “View → Radio Window”. Enables to manually switch over to the radio view that hides the video area (even if TV or a video is played). Previously is was only available via “Options → TV/Radio → Hide video display area on audio only playback” letting DVBViewer switch to it automatically. Additionally the Radio Window now permanently displays the Main Window Control Bar for navigation.
Added: Main Window: “View → Show Frame” menu item that hides / shows the frame of Video Window 1/2. Please note that even in “frame off” mode some Windows versions still shows a (thinner) frame if the title bar is visible. Since Windows does not allow to resize a Window in “frame off” mode, DVBViewer automatically switches the frame on while the mouse cursor is close to the window border.
Added: OSD: The (internet) radio text OSD (see Options → TV/Radio → Show radio text) can now occupy up to three lines, so that long text is not cut off anymore. If no radio text is available it displays the EPG title of the current program or at least the channel name. In case of internet radio the Radio Text OSD shows metadata like artist and title. Internally the metadata is converted to EPG data and can also be viewed in the EPG window.
Fix: File Playback: Unicode subtitles from SRT files were not displayed correctly.
Change: MHEG5/HbbTV: The main window control bar is now usable while MHEG or HbbTV is active, thus enabling to jump / seek with the mouse in HbbTV videos.
Change/Fix: HbbTV: Measures for speeding up navigation in HbbTV pages, various fixes and enhancements.
Fix: Movie Thumbnails: The function for generating video thumbnails was not able to create thumbnails from some important video formats and tended to crash if it was canceled. The resulting thumbnail files could not be processed in the OSD. Please note: It is recommendable to delete all old files in the Configuration Folder\Images\Thumbs\Videos\Title sub-directory.
Change: Movie Thumbnails Creation / Mosaic Preview: A considerable speed-up of both functions due to optimization. The maximum video thumbnail width/height has been increased from 128 to 256 pixels.
Removed: Movie Options: “Movie Thumbs” page including the faulty generation of movie thumbnails for selected directories. The thumbnails are now created automatically on demand if the corresponding option is switched on (see below).
Added: Movie Options: The “Movies” page now contains a “Create Thumbnails” checkbox that switches the automatic on-demand creation of video thumbnails on/off. The default is “off”. Additionally a “From Position” input field allows to specify from which file position (in seconds from the beginning) the thumbnail shall be taken. Please note: Thumbnail creation now requires the LAV Filters to be installed!
Change: Channel Editor/EPG: Previously the EPG settings in the channel editor specified which EPG types (DVB/MHW/External) are accepted and stored for a channel. Now all arriving EPG data is stored and the settings decide which EPG type is displayed for a channel, allowing to switch between them. Data from different sources for the same channel can coexist in the EPG data base without being mixed up or overwritten. If more than one EPG type is allowed and available for a channel, DVBViewer prefers external (imported) EPG data over MediaHighway data over DVB data.
Removed/Change: EPG Options: The three checkboxes “Receive standard / MediaHighway / Freesat EPG data” have been removed. EPG reception is now always enabled, particularly Freesat EPG reception if the orbital position of satellite channels is 28.2° East (previously switched off by default). Additionally the “MHW/Freesat” page (allowing to enter frequencies on which MediaHighway and high speed Freesat EPG is broadcasted) has been merged with the main EPG page.
Change/Fix: EPG Handling: General restructuring of EPG related code, including support for the import of external EPG data from Xepg for TS Stream channels. Some problems and inconsistencies have been fixed.
Fix: EPG Window: Parts of the EPG timeline were not scaled according to the Windows text size. On program controlled tab changes (not directly triggered by the user) the content of the filter drop-down list was not adjusted to the active tab.
Fix: EPG Import: The EPG import from the Recording Service after waking up from sleep mode / hibernate tended to fail due to network adapters not being ready at this early stage. It is now performed after a delay of 30 seconds (see here). Additionally the import is now performed in the background in order to prevent the UI from freezing for several seconds due to waiting if the server is unreachable.
Added: RTSP Device: CAM menu display for virtual RTSP devices. Requires DVBViewer Media Server 2.0 or later. For accessing TV/Radio → CAM Menu “Has CI module” must be checked for the RTSP device (see Options → Hardware), playback using this device must be active in the main window and a DVB device with CI/CAM must be associated with it on the server side.
Added: RTSP Device: Tweak for letting the RTSP Device send a complete DVB-T parameter set to a Sat>IP server including some fake values, in order to formally comply with the specifications. (see here, (2)). The tweak can be added to RTSP Network Device sections in the file hardware.xml:
Fix: CI Handling: Tuning an unencrypted channel could stop or disturb decryption of another channel from the same transponder and spoil an ongoing recording of this channel (particularly concerning DVBSky and FireDTV).
Fix: Hardware: Windows messages reporting the arrival or removal of a DVB USB device did not update the executable state of recording timers.
Added: Hardware: DVB-T2 and sub-stream (MPLP) detection for EMPIA based DVB-T2 devices (e.g. Hauppauge WinTV-soloHD, dualHD and PCTV triplestick).
Fix: Hardware: The Hauppauge WinTV-soloHD, dualHD and PCTV triplestick hybrid tuners were erroneously regarded as USB 1.1 devices that are not able to deliver more than one TV channel at the same time. Please note: A new device detection must be performed on Options → Hardware to fix this issue.
Fix: Hardware: DiSEqC with Sundtek DVB-S2 sticks did not work. Please note: A new device detection must be performed on Options → Hardware to fix this issue.
Updated: Hardware Database.
Change: Recorder: Parts of the recorder have been restructured. Recordings are now started after reading the broadcasted service information, thus making it unnecessary to split and restart recording immediately due to channel data changes.
Change: Scaling: Resizer.exe and DVBViewer.exe now support user defined window and font size scaling up to 300%.
Fix: COM Interface: After registering a COM event handler the action ID 16382 for minimizing DVBViewer did not work anymore (see here).
Fix: DVBViewer Media Server Options: After being opened the page did not display the currently selected Media Server, but the first Media Server that was found in the network, which could be misleading.
Updated: DVBViewer Filter (DVBSource) to version 3.9.4.
Added: Playback: Support for HEVC playback with the Lentoid Decoder. Please note: Requires DVBViewer Filter 3.9.4. The measures are optimized for German DVB-T2 (HEVC Full HD 50 fps). They enlarge the buffer size in the DVBViewer Filter so that it exceeds the maximum video PES packet size. Otherwise artifacts may occur. This special size can be tweaked in the file DVBSource.ini (see configuration folder) by adding an entry BufferSize=... in KB to the [Params] section. The default is 320. Increasing the value further for UHD may cause a very high memory consumption, particularly if playback is too slow so that the DVBViewer Filter uses up to 1000 buffers of this size.
