Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
DVBViewer Pro 5.5.1
In Memoriam - Lars Gehre

Fix/Change: Main Window: Several window state related issues concerning “Hide All” mode, Radio Window etc. The Radio Window is now always shown with title bar, menu bar, tool bar and status bar. These elements cannot be hidden anymore (the variable height caused some unwanted effects). The Radio Window width is now handled and stored independently from the Video Window width...
Add: General: Scaling of tool button icons and other graphical elements according to the Windows text size settings in the Control Panel → Appearance and Personalization → Display section (with regard to 4k displays).
Fix: Playlist Window: The toolbar icons at the lower right were not displayed. Additionally the toolbar icons on the left side were displayed with magenta background if the channel list editor was opened before the playlist (old bug already in 5.1).
Change/Fix: Stream Playback: Playback of RTSP and RTMP (Flash) URLs is now delegated by default to the LAV Source Filter if installed (previously to the VOD Source Filter that couldn't handle it). Additionally the DVBViewer Playlist now recognizes RTSP and RTMP URLs in .m3u playlist files as URL. Previously they were wrongly treated as local file paths. In combination this enables import and playback of RTSP channel lists (as provided by Sat>IP servers).
Change/Fix: Stream Playback: Filter graph presets for playing URLs (containing “stream” as condition) took only effect partly. Now it is possible to create presets for certain protocol types by specifying them as pseudo file extensions (e. g. .http), particularly for forcing the usage of a source filter like LAV. Please note that this may prevent playback of HbbTV content that requires a certain user agent.
Change: General: The “Large Address Awareness Flag” is set again.
Add: General: Detection of the ATSC E-AC3 stream type.
Add: Recorder Options: “Scheduler launch attempts” tweak (see Tweaker.exe). Specifies whether the Windows Task Scheduler shall try to launch DVBViewer Pro one time or two times for a scheduled recording. The default is 1.
Add: Channel Auto Update: DVBViewer now also updates / corrects the Network ID, thus avoiding failure of channel -> EPG data assignment.
Change: Channel List Editor: The Delete buttons were replaced by a single waste bin tool button.
Add: Channel List Editor: “New Category” tool button and context menu item. Inserts a category folder at the selected position.
Add: Channel List Editor: “New Root” context menu item. Adds a root folder to the channel list.
Add: Channel List Editor: “Default Audio Track” context menu item (F10). Turns the selected audio track sub-entry into the main audio track.
Change: Channel List Editor: Scan, Edit Favorites and Close buttons replaced by tool buttons.
Change: Channel List Editor: The current channel resp. audio track played in the main window is displayed in bold (also applies to all channel list views except in the OSD). Previously bold channel names indicated in a faulty way channels that had already been handled by the automatic channel update.
Fix: Channel List Editor: Incomplete and faulty handling of the “Changed” flag indicating whether the channel list in memory differs from the channel list on disk. The activation / deactivation of the Save and Reload tool button now indicate the current state (also applies to the Favorites Editor resp. favorites list).
Fix: Channel List Editor: Missing update of the favorites menu in the main window after changes in the Favorite Editor on some occasions.
Change/Fix: Channel List Editor: Some Icons have been changed / corrected, particularly those of the “New Folder” and “Reload/Undo” tool buttons in the favorites editor.
Fix: Channel List Editor: The in-place edit box for changing category names showed no text cursor.
Add: Channel List Editor: In-place edit box for changing channel, category and root names. It is activated by slowly double-clicking an item (aslike in Windows Explorer).
Add: Channel List Editor: After rebuilding the channel list tree view the editor re-selects the last selected channel instead of displaying the tree in collapsed state. Particularly applies to the “Reload” function and to automatic channel updates.
Fix: Channel List Editor: The Favorites Editor did not auto-scroll the content of expanded nodes into view.
Change/Fix: Channel List: General code cleanup and various minor fixes concerning the channel list management. “Same transponder” detection does not require identical DiSEqC settings anymore.
Change: RTSP Device / Sat>IP: The “Hardware → Retune on missing stream” option now reconnects to the server resp. starts a new session, thus being able to re-establish a lost network connection (previously it only repeated the tune command).
Fix: Hardware: The TerraTec Connect N3 network tuner was not handled correctly.
Updated: Tweaker.exe to version 1.0.6. It displays settings that differ from the default in italic. A new Default Button allows to reset the selected setting individually. The former Default Button is now labeled “All Default”. It resets all settings to their default.

Fantastic application, too bad the author insists on not supporting madVR.

its easy and has a neat look with great functionality.

I have been using DVBviewer for over a year to view DVB-T.
It works superbly, noglitches.
$15 is not nuch considering what you get (indeed you must order to download, but you won´t regret it)
I have used before ProgDVB and WinFastDTV and this is much better.
Highly recommended.

It's the best DVB software I have ever found(I've tryied most of all). I have Hauppauge and AverMedia tuners, but I use only DVBViewer not the software they add, for easy of use and it's better functionality. 15 EUR I payed, is not too much.
Buy the way, there was no problems to order the software from their website, it was wery easy and clear.

I could visit the authors website, order, login, download, post in forum ...
Though the usability of the site could be better.

The basic recording functions of DVBViewer Pro are very stable and without nags.
With my TerraTec Cinergy DT USB XS Diversity (2 DVB-T Tuners) i have recorded up to 5 programs on 2 Channels simultaneously. Standby (suspend to RAM) is supported flawlessly. Programming of timers is comfortable once you have understood the functions of EPG.

I visited the authors website but couldn't find anywhere to download this software. There are links to download addons but nothing for the DVBViewer itself. There is no information provided about where to go for downloading either. One has to wonder why the author has to make it so damned difficult to get the software!

In case you were wondering I also registered as "a member" [in case that was required for downloads] but that didn't work either as I never received a confirmation email.

Unfortunately I have to assume that the software, like the website, is a total waste of time. Pity that!

I tried this one with my Hauppauge Nova-T USB2 for receiving H264/AVC + AAC DVB-T signal, I selected CoreAVC for H264 decoder and ffdshow for Audio decoder. Preview was okay but when I started recording it just stopped after 25 seconds and that was it, I had to restart program.

Works great with DVD-S2 cards and HD streems; highly configurable.

I had problem to record AC3 audio with original software (crap!!!) bundled with TT-BUDGET S-2 3200 card. DVBViewer resolved it perfectly.
