    1.4.7 available

    You can download 1.4.7 from http://www.gbpvr.com/GBPVR10407.msi

    VERY IMPORTANT. This version of GB-PVR uses a newer Microsoft runtime that previous versions of GB-PVR, so you absolutely need to install the new http://www.gbpvr.com/vcredist_x86.zip. New users and users upgrading from earlier releases with need to install this.

    If you're upgrading from a previous release, I recommend you backup your gbpvr.db3 and config.xml files just in case anything goes wrong. Post any problem reports in the Support forum.


    For new users, I'd recommend reviewing the guides here: http://forums.gbpvr.com/showthread.p...467#post346467. These will help you through the process of getting GB-PVR up and running.

    If upgrading from an earlier version, its recommended you backup your existing gbpvr.db3 and config.xml files, and store them away in a safe place in case of any problems during the upgarde. These files would be needed if you want to go back to the previous version. For those upgrading, I'd also recommend stopping all GB-PVR software (tray app, recording service etc) prior to starting the upgrade.

    There is not a lot of visual differences in this new version of the application, but there is a lot behind the scene stuff that'll be useful to a lot of people (for example, CI support, Windows 7 compatibility, scanning improvements etc).
    From the change log:
    - added CI support for watching DVB pay TV channels outside of north america. Devices supported include Hauppauge WinTV-CI, and CI capable devices from Twinhan, FireDTV and TechnoTrend. You can enable CI support on a per capture source basis, using the new 'common interface' checkbox in the digital capture source settings.
    - improved compatibility with Windows 7
    - added logic to auto correct the tuning request of any already mapped channels at the end of each scan. Basically if your broadcaster had changed any audio/video pids, you can go into the config app and hit the 'rescan' button, then any channel mappings that match the same frequency and program number will be automatically updated to have the correct PIDs/PMT/PCR etc.
    - DVB Subtitles now working again for live preview tv. When you're using the TS Mux it'll also work for timeshift mode tv, and for playback of recordings.
    - streaming client mode is now compatible with 'TS Mux'
    - updated channel digital channel scanning screen. Showing details about the selected channel.
    - now keeps a few more backups of recording-dump.xml
    - added support for DolbyDigital+ audio (also known as E-AC3). This audio format is starting to be used with channels in a few countries (France, Israel etc).
    - QAM users can now choose to use HRC cable frequencies if they needed.
    - at the end of a QAM scan it will ask the user for permission to query the Internet for additional channel information (ie channel names). This query uses the SiliconDust web API. Thank you SiliconDust (the HDHomeRun manufacturer) for offering the use of this service.
    - fixed a bug where stopping DVD back would cause it to drop back to the main menu instead of staying in the plugin previously visible (for example, Video Library)
    - fixed a problem where DVD playback could automatically restart on the next keystroke after previously stopping DVD playback when screen saver timeout period had expired.
    - added ability to schedule to watch a future show. In TV Guide, press play on a show in the future and it'll highlight blue. App will start live tv and switch to that channel at the specified time. Pretty basic, no popup reminders on the screen.
    - decoders listed in the config app are now dynamically detected, rather that from the list in config.xml
    - fixed a problem with selecting the daemon tools executable in the config app.
    - improved .ts playback
    - new capture sources now default to the digital capture plugin instead of analog.
    - added "-fullscreen" and "-window" command line parameters which can be used to override the default settings specified in the config app
    - many PCH improvements to support changes Martin has been making to mvpmcx2. (already made available via patches)
    - updated mux checker to show TS Mux and DVR-MS mux.
    - added support ffdshow as H.264 decoder. This decoder doesnt seem to work that well for live H.264 tv though, and often display garbage on the screen when you channel change.
    - added support for the Microsoft H.264 decoder (as used by Windows 7 Media Center)
    - added option to treat the 'Play' key as a 'Play/Pause' key.
    - radio stations now included in the digital scan results
    - DVB-S2 now available on Hauppauge devices
    - fixed a bug where focus would not move to the list control if you clicked on it with a mouse
    - improved logic for scanning digital streams for channels
    - fixed a problem with using the ArcSoft Video Decoder (and some other video decoders) with transport stream recording playback.
    - fixed a crash that could occur changing skins from the settings menu.
    - added genre to the ADS metadata stored with recordings
    - updated mdapi support to also work for encrypted H.264 channels. Also fixed a related but that was stopping mdapi support on some channels with AC3 audio.
    - 'search guide' and 'find all' search results now also include shows currently airing
    - fixed a bug that could cause the automatic 'empty epg' step to be skipped during the during the epg update process if the user had any capture sources with the Epg Source set to 'none'.
    - added ability for skin files to specify a .ttf filename in <TextStyle> so that fonts can be loaded from a file rather than an installed font. The .ttf file must be in the root directory of the skin that uses that font. For example, <TextStyle name="DefaultTextStyle" typeFace="aeon_font.ttf" size="12" style="bold"/>
    - setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\devnz\TSMuxBlockEncryp ted=1 (DWORD) will cause the TS Mux to discard encrypted packets rather than writing them to the file being recorded.

    Multidec users should note that the setting to enable multidec is no longer on the Misc2 tab of the config app. Instead its now on an individual capture source basis, so you need to edit your capture source settings to set the 'Common Interface' setting to 'Multidec'.

    BTW, HDHomeRun users will need to remember to add the correct entries for their tuners to the bda.ini file after running the upgrade. Newer versions of the HDHomeRun software will automatically if your application is set to 'GBPVR', but you'd need to rerun its configuration software to get it re-add these entries.

    Just to add to this:

    There are some significant changes to QAM setup in this version. HDHomeRun users should back up the new qam.ini before running the HDHomeRun setup. I'm working on step by step instructions for the new QAM configuration process.

    WAF getting close to the point where I will be allowed to put a PC (running GBPVR) in the living room!

    Upgrade failed

    Hi Sub,

    In attempting to upgrade from 1.3.11 I'm getting an "Installation ended prematurely because of an error" message.

    The install looks like it goes all the way through installing but then "rolls back".

    Is there an install log somewhere that I can look at to see what the problem might be?

    Thanks,

    Martyn

    Sorry, in every release there seems to be one or two users that report this. I'm no good at diagnosing these msi installer types of problem. If you do a forum search though, you'll see discussion about others having to work through it with previous release. From memory, it's often fixed with some "sc delete ..." command to remote the recording service or something like that.

    When this happens to me I just use control panel to uninstall then simply install again. It's worked every time for me.
