GB-PVR 1.2.9

Posted on Monday, March 10 2008 @ 14:52:16 CET by

GB-PVR is a fully featured home media center application, allowing you to easily use a remote to watch tv, schedule recordings, watch videos, watch DVDs, listen to music, view photos etc.

  • added improvements to H.264 support
  • added Overlay renderer support to PVRX2
  • disabled video inset when using EVR or Overlay video renderer.
  • updated the included EWA to build 74.
  • added support for DVB channels using AAC or AAC LATM audio like those in NZ, Norway, and a few more European destinations in the near future etc. You need a compatible AAC LATM audio decoder installed, like the free Monograph AAC decoder. Google for it.
  • added option to do BDA recordings "out of process", which works around the multidec limitation of one instance per process, allowing for multiple multidec recordings to occur at the same time.
  • added support for Hauppauge HD-PVR.
  • improved transport stream support, including ability to play in-progress recordings.
  • currently playing song now shown in top right of Music Library
  • fixed long standing bug where you'd get a SQLite error if you exited the app before the listings had finished loading in the background
  • fixed a bug where current audio playlist could be wiped
  • fixed a problem with recording pre-padding kicking in on the second of back to back recordings on the same tuner
  • fixed a problem with DVD playback when using the EVR renderer
  • fixed a problem with the music library "Play All" menu option.
  • added a work around for a situation where the system would claim no VMR9 support after resuming from hibernation.
  • fixed a problem with double clicking on menu items.
  • fixed a problem where temporary files might be left behind after the DVB-EPG update if using the dvr-ms mux.
  • fixed a bug where starting in fullscreen mode then switching to window mode could cause the app to resize to a very small window.
  • setting now obeyed in PVRX2
  • In Music Library you can now press play with a directory selected and it'll auto queue and shuffle all the music files contained in that directory, or any nested directories it contains.
  • fixed a bug with the selection index being reset while viewing the Recordings screen pending list while a recordings is recording padding.
  • fixed a situation where comskip would not run at the end of recordings
  • added current song name to the screen saver
  • added 'dvr-ms to mpg' coversion option to video library transcode function
  • mvp will now allow on the fly transcoding of mkv and mov files
  • fixed a problem with initiating a recording from live tv
  • pressing the 'Play' key with a recording highlighted in the Recordings screen will now start playback, without the need to view the details of the recording.
  • added support for displaying panels on the main menu. This isnt backwards compatible with legacy plugin that provided old GBPVR.exe style panels implementing IPanel. New plugin wanting to add panels need to implment IUiPanel.
  • currently playing song now shown in top right of Net Library and Music Library
  • if is set to true in config.xml, then pressing the Record key with a recording highlighted in the Recordings screen will cancel/delete that recording. It will obey the setting though, so can give you a warning popup if set to true.
  • music/video/picture library now list and follow directory shortcuts
  • added logic to make sure the machine doesnt go to sleep when navigating the menus with a remote
  • added DVB-S2 support for FireDTV and Hauppauge DVB-S2 devices. Unable to test, but should work.
  • added ability to press Play on a recording in the Recordings screen and have it play without seeing the details.
  • if multiple Music/Video/Picture Library directories are defined, then they are now shown in the order shown in the config app
  • can now press 'record' button on remote in Search Guide to schedule a quick record without viewing the show details.
  • added the ability to update a pending or in-progress recording from the TV Guide in the same way that is available from the recording, pending menu.
  • fixed a bug that could cause an unexpected crash. Usually occurred in the config app, but could also happen in other places.
  • added setting that can be used to force the app to do it's internal rendering at a resolution other than the current desktop resolution (useful for video card without enough video memory)
  • added some logic to automatically detect BDA filter pin names rather than relying on definitions in bda.ini.
  • fixed a bug that could cause channels with a dash in their name to have problems pulling in listings from DVB EPG source.
  • fixed a bug that had stopped one particular user from being able to use two Nova-S Plus devices in the one machine. Its an uncommon problem, but may also affect others.
  • in the same way '999' can be used to toggle comskip during file playback, '998' can now be used to delete the comskip file for the currently playing video. This is useful if comskip got it wrong and you dont want to use the comskip info for future attempts to play this file.
  • added support for switching audio streams on AVI files with multiple audio streams (Ctrl-G or Green key on remotes with colour keys). You need to have the Morgan Stream Switcher filter installed for this to work.
  • added support for switching audio streams on MKV files with multiple audio streams (Ctrl-G or Green key on remotes with colour keys).
  • added ability to press Ctrl-O to see information about the current video stream (encoding, resolution etc).
  • added a simple command line scheduler (Schedule.exe). Run it with no command line arguments to see some sample command lines.
