when I was struggling with the XP install issue, I did have a circle N in the tray, next to the nice G I am used to. I clicked on it and there was some functionality but I don't remember what. Now, with a clean install, I don't have it anymore. Is this an issue?

Also, how do you stop a recording in progress? I scheduled one and it started, then I was messing with the EPG and wanted to stop it. I can't figure out how. (thats why I was looking for the tray icon)

OK, it was not running but I was able to start it. I rebooted and it is there agian so I guess it just needed a reboot.

Now there was a nugget of information I missed all day. I switched to the old style recordings screen just to get pending overview :rolleyes: . The new version just grew a bit more on me ;)

I miss not being able to start x-pvr from the system tray icon. Any plans to restore this functionality?

Also, the n-pvr tray right click menu behaves oddly (xp sp2). Clicking away from the menu doesn't cancel it so it just sits there until you make a selection.

Sub, the context menu option does not work on 64bit windows 7 since the path is not correct.

What is the HKLM\Software\NPVR\InstallDirectory registry setting set to on your machine?

Oops, just realised I left the message box in there. I'll remove it.

Sub, HKLM\Software\NPVR does not exist.
I do see HKCU\Software\NPVR but no InstallDirectory setting.

Sub, HKLM\Software\NPVR does not exist.On x64 machine its probably HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\NPVR.

The message box is no longer there but it does not execute NextPVR.exe

It looks like it should be correct.

I've added the message box back in, what does it say?

Azimuth

it still says C:\Program Files\NPVR\NextPVR.exe

You definitely updated NShared.DLL?

If so, it should be finding HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\NPVR\InstallDirectory as the base part of that filename.

I double checked. it is the new one and it shows the wrong path.
also, The right click process seems to drag for a second or two before displaying the context menu, as does executing the ntray.exe. Maybe it's not pulling the values?

Its definitely working for me on my Windows x64 machine.

Do you have a HKLM\Software\NPVR key? If so, does deleting it fix it? ie, so there is only a HKLM\Software\NPVR\Wow6432Node.

I deleted both files, all copies of the zip file I downloaded and re-downloaded the patch - re applied. Still the same (wrong) path in dialog box. Still the same lag as well.

Ah, I realised I gave you the wrong file. Try this one.

Great. You can use that previous NTray.exe that removed the message box.
