The new epg timeline is making my eyes bleed ,is it possible to go back to the 6.12 epg but still have the new DVBViewer 6.13 ?

Launch Tweaker.exe -> tick the "Simple timeline view in the EPG window" checkbox -> save.

edit:

ok , the  "Simple timeline view " works but channel titles on the left are a strange pink colour but it is better than before.

Had the same, went to the Configuration Folder (i.E. from help menu). Made a backup of "setup.xml" somewhere, closed DVBViewer (important!), opened the setup.xml file in a text editor. Searched for a section named "Timeline" and renamed it simply to "TimelineOld" (so that it's no longer used, didn't want to delete it). After saving the file and starting DVBViewer again the former default colors were used.

 

I don't know where the old reddish colors came from, they were present long before 6.1.3 but not used and the "Timeline" section is not created again now with proper colors. This were the old, strange colors present here:

Old DVBViewer versions saved the default timeline color scheme to the setup.xml. Recent versions don't write it anymore, but read it from the setup.xml if present so that colors can be tweaked. However, they expect a different format (00RRGGBB instead of the old 00BBGGRR), so that hex values from online color designers can be used directly without having to swap the RR (red value) and BB (blue value) part.

 

Obviously the assumption, that in the meantime the old entries have vanished from almost all setup.xml files, was a bit too optimistic. If new DVBViewer versions read the old entries, they swap the red and blue part of the RGB value, which yields the reddish timeline design.


Here are the default values for the simple (old) timeline and new timeline2 design as they would appear in the setup.xml, if they were stored by DVBViewer 6.1.3  in the new 00RRGGBB order:
