DVBViewer Recording Service icon not appear


Recommended Posts

This is not a bug. Its more likely you need to study the Win10 settings. There is several ways to go but you could right click the up arrow (in tray) and start "Settings for the tray area" -> Scroll down to "Choose which icons to display in the tray area" and activate the one for RS.

Use the task manager for checking if DVBVCtrl.exe is running.  DVBVCtrl.exe (see Program Files (x86)\DVBViewer) is the RS tray application that shows the icon and allows to communicate with the RS.


if DVBVCtrl.exe is not running, launch it manually. After that make sure that the autostart is switched on in the tray menu.

DVBVCtrl.exe is not running and they not are in Program Files (x86)\DVBViewer

I have installed: DVBViewer_setup_5.3.2.exe and svc_setup_1.6.5.2.exe

These versions (DVBViewer and recording service) are very old and outdated. Please Download a newer version from the Members Area. Some Anti Virus Software marked the old versions as potential dangerous and delete them from your HDD. This is a false positive. The newer versions are digitally signed, which avoid trouble with Anti Virus Software.

But my pay key will be working with new versions? 


None files are marked for my antivirus


Also, I use web service and I think this not exist in new versions. I don't like programing records out of navigator.

Thank you very much. It works perfectly. The program is wonderful. I have not even had to reconfigure. It was enough not to erase the data when uninstalling.


I was afraid to update because lately there is a current to remove functionalities and options to the programs. But this one does not do it. This version is even better. Please continue like this. DVBViewer is the best program that I have bought in my life.


I love you.

You can support the developers by buying the DMS (Ordering is done from the DVBViewer Key Tool) as a more current version of the Recording Service Beta which is discontinued. Again you can install the DMS simply over the RS without reconfiguration, most things look and work just the same. The old RS does not support all new things of DVBViewer 6.x like IPTV streams, the DMS 2.x does.

      DVBWiewer Recording Service Linux / Wine
      Ubuntu 18.04 server 1GB RAM 1 Core FSTAB: mount NFS recordings  from NAS to /mnt/recordings Name: dvbsrv  

      We need wine (32bit version), Xvfb (short for X virtual framebuffer) for
      running the recording service without screen, cabextract for extracting
      the needed DirectX file (ksproxy.ax) and nfs-common for mounting the
      recording share.
      dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt update apt install wine32 xvfb cabextract nfs-common  
      Software Wine:
      We create a user which is running the Recording Service.
      In the users home we store the needed Windows software parts in the subdirectory "sw".

      There's a question I cannot answer myself.
      I have two physical servers in one subnet with recording services installed (ports are changed to be different) .
      DVBViewer on server 1 sees channels from local cards without recording service and channels from recording service on server 1 and 2.
      DVBViewer on server 2 sees channels from local cards without recording service and channels from recording service on server 2. But not from recording service on server 1.
      Logs show no tries of connection.

      Ich habe in letzter Zeit immer häufiger Aufnahmen per Recording Service, die als fehlerfrei protokolliert werden (->.log), die sich nach dem Demuxen mit ProjectX als nicht fehlerfrei erweisen. Wiedergabe der TS-Datei stockt auch an den entsprechenden Stellen.
      Empfang ist DVD-C mit Cinergy HTC USB XS (Treiber: 5.9.1202.0). Keine Änderungen der Hardware. Keine Aktivitäten am PC während der Aufnahme.
      Versuchsweise habe ich mal auf eine ältere RS-Version ( gewechselt - leider ohne Erfolg.
      Hier die entsprechenden Logs vom RS:
      bzw. von ProjectX:

      dummerweise habe ich das neueste iOS auf meinem iPad installiert und nun funktioniert leider der Recording Service über die App nicht mehr bzw auch nicht über die HTML-Seite per Safari.
      Meine Vermutung ist die fehlende Unterstützung des Quicktime Plugins. Ich glaube, die Abschaffung war angekündigt und ich finde auch keine Hinweise oder Aktivierungsmöglichkeiten mehr dazu.
      Man kommt bis "Stream starten" und dann wird kein Video angezeigt: "Der Stream konnte nicht geladen werden". Habe ich vielleicht etwas übersehen?
      Obwohl es schon relativ umständlich war, bis man den Stream sehen konnte, vermisse ich das jetzt doch sehr.
      Die jeweils neuesten Versionen DVBViever und Recording Service habe ich auf dem PC installiert, V6.0.3 und Die PC-Programme finde ich übrigens genial.
      Beste Grüße.
