Slimm GB-PVR - alternative tray app for GB-PVR
I have completed a functioning version of my GBPVRTray replacement. wiki entry.
Note: this version is not compatible with GBPVR v0.96.12 or earlier.
This now includes:
- A tray utility (the original Slimm GB-PVR)
- GBPVRcli (forum thread)
- Ensure you have installed .NET Framework 2.0. It can probably be installed by accessing your Windows Update or you can follow this download link: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Redistributable
- Download and install SlimmGBPVR: Direct download link
About my use of GBPVR
I use GBPVR on a normal PC and only use the GBPVR interface for scheduling recordings. I watch all my recordings using PowerDVD. I wrote this because of always having to double-click the system tray icon to confirm what is actually recording at any given time.
For all details regarding current version, please see documentation which is installed alongside the utility and is available in the GBPVR start menu group.
- Lists next few pending recordings and allows you to cancel them.
- Lists contents of your recordings folder and allows you to launch them directly. When you've finished watching them, you are asked if would like to delete the recording (it will move it to the recycle bin).
- Can shutdown your computer when current recording session has finished.
- Provides direct computer shutdown links.
- Added warning to "restart recording service" option so recordings not accidentally wiped.
- Can stop active recordings from right-click menu.
- Much the same functionality as the current GBPVRTray but you do not have to double-click the icon to see what GBPVR is recording. Simply move the mouse over the icon and a balloon tip will appear with information.
- You can launch "GBPVR" and "Config" from the right-click menu.
Comments, bugs, suggestions, requests all welcome.
