Inconsistency in recording indicator in DVBViewer

I thought I was crazy when after upgrade the 'record' button on toolbar changed colors from gray to red, but now I see there's another problem related to this (intended?) change.


When channel is recording, a red record icon overlay is visible in taskbar.


However, the menubar record icon is gray.


I'm not sure what the point was of changing the button on menu (it got inverted after 6.0.4.x update), so it should either go back to original gray/red when idle/recording OR the recording indicator icon in taskbar should be changed accordingly. now its not consistent and confusing to the user.

There was no change. It was always like that.


Red tool button in the tool bar -> start recording of the currently played channel.

Gray button in the toolbar -> the currently played channel (!) is recorded so you can't start another recording of the same channel in this way. If you click the gray button a menu for stopping / deleting / playing the recording shows up.

Red (REC) sign in the DVBViewer statusbar or taskbar -> DVBViewer is currently recording (any channel).

      Hallo, ich habe noch aus Media Center-Zeiten viele DVB Aufzeichnungen, welche ich mit ffmpeg von WTV nach MPEG TS ge-remultiplext habe. Diese würde ich nun gerne nach dem Umstieg auf DVBViewer zu den neuen Aufzeichnungen hinzufügen damit man diese ganz normal über das aufzeichnungs menü abspielen kann. Reicht es, wenn ich dafür einfach ähnliche Textfiles anlege wie sie der recording Service erstellt? Falls ja, welche Informationen müssen mindestens in den Text falsch drin stehen? Oder müssen diese in eine interne Datenbank hinzugefügt werden? Oder kann ich den recording Service irgendwie dazu bringen dass er ein Verzeichnis nach neuen TS Files durchscannt? Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe.

      Hallo Griga,
      ich möchte ein meinem Programm neben dem CHANNEL-NAME auch die Quelle( SAT/Internet...HLS Deutsch....)  einer Aufnahme anzeigen.
      In einem TIMER-RECORD habe kann ich hierfür den Node  <CHANNEL ID> zerlegen und benutzen.
      In einem RECORDING-RECORD habe ich nur den Node >CHANNEL>xxxx</CHANNEL>
      Das reicht leider für meine Zwecke nicht aus.

      <recording id="98" charset="255" start="20181021195500" duration="001000">
      <channel>Das Erste</channel>
      <channel ID>1234567890</channel ID>
      d:\_aufnahmen\2018-10-21_19-59-23_das erste_tagesschau.ts
      Vielleicht kannst du diesen Node optional beim Aufruf hinzufügen:
      vg & Dank 
      Sir Drake

      I have many recordings in both MediaPortal and DVBlink that I would like to import. I have successfully imported from Mediaportal to DVBLink but how can I import to DVBViewer media service? Is there any way to do this? I have been contemplating to change the XML file names to TXT and do the import tool from the desktop client. Any ideas?

      The listview used for EPG search results allows sorting up/down by clicking headers.
      The sorting appears to sorta work - clicking 'Start' for example, attempts to sort by date + time, resulting with listview showing correct data.
      However, clicking each individual EPG entry in the sorted list results in different dates/program names being displayed.
      How to reproduce:
      1) Search for anything in EPG
      2) Try sorting by start time (for example)
      3) Try clicking various results and compare "Event" title and time/date with the ones shown in "Details" tab below.

      Here, the EPG is searched, and sorted by start time, ascending.
      The search order looks correct, but clicking the entry shows  completely different results in Details.
      The "hover over" content however looks OK (it is the program in question as noted by Event Title and description.
      EDIT: There appear to be other sort order issues (i.e. sorting by station name doesn't appear to alphabetically sort it, either), but I think incorrect metadata issue needs to be addressed first.

      I have heard 6.0.4 fixed the recordings window listview issue on deleting items.
      While I was in Options/Input dialog I noticed the same problem when deleting multiple keyboard hotkeys.
      How to reproduce:
      1) Enable Learn mode
      2) Press some unique keys to assign to a function, e.g. "Always on Top"
      3) After the list contains several entries, go to last entry and press 'Delete'
      What happens:
      Cursor jumps to the top of the list
      What should happen:
      Cursor remains at the bottom of the list (last row) after deletion.
      EDIT: Actually, the problem is worse, after each deletion (even if cursor is in the middle of listview), it jumps back to the section header (In this case "Always on top") instead of remaining at the deleted position - 1
