Version history / Release notes / Changelog

22.0.41 (11/14/2016)

1. Changed: Tooltips are turned off during a listening test (and turned back on afterward).

22.0.40 (11/14/2016)

1. Changed: Color coding of Theater View television guide grid is now optional.
2. Changed: The vertical line to indicate current time in Theater View television guide is now optional.
3. Fixed: DSP Studio wouldn't load the ideal page size of the first page it showed.
4. Fixed: OTA/In-stream EPG scanning finish event was not logged in TV Logs.
5. NEW: Multiple types of OTA/In-stream EPG scanning (such as DVB-T and DVB-C) can be scheduled for background scanning and they will be scanned sequentially.
6. Changed: Manually changing images during playback stops the image slideshow.
7. Changed: Auto-import is stopped during a Listening Test and then restarted after.
8. Changed: Tweaked ATSC over-the-air EPG scanning. It is now more efficient and more thorough.

22.0.39 (11/8/2016)

1. Changed: When looking for a suitable TV tuner to record a program, MC will no longer create and desctroy the TV engine each time a tuner is examined.
2. Changed: Eliminated unnecessary logging in a block of frequently called TV code.
3. Changed: Tweaked some parameters in DVB EPG scanning, to try to make it more efficient.
4. Changed: Reduced the amount of logging in MPEG-2 packet parsing, and in EPG scanning in particular.
5. NEW: Duplicate TV recordings scheduled will be removed at recording start time if different recording rules produce duplicate recordings of the same program on the same channel.
6. Changed: On TV recording rules view in Standard View, time-based recording duration value will take into account of recording start and end time padding, to be consistent with other recording modes.
7. Fixed: Picking WPL as the playlist formats on a handheld would use ASX instead.
8. NEW: Video Thumbnails are rotated to match the video's rotation.

22.0.38 (11/2/2016)

1. Fixed: Simultaneously starting to record with the same file names by two TV tuners did not work.

5. NEW: ATSC OTA EPG scanning will pick up the parental rating info if TV stations broadcast it.
6. Changed: DVB in-stream EPG scanning will ignore the "has scheduled" flag and attempt to scan for scheduled programs anyway. Some TV stations do not broadcast this flag correctly.

1. Changed: Added more error checking in tuning to CableCARD TV tuners.
2. Changed: Updated Slovak translation (thanks Peter Lukac).

4. Changed: Marked "Linkwitz-Riley Filter" for translation.
5. NEW: Added Tools > Listening Test ... to try your listening skills.
6. Changed: Adjusted some logging entries in TV engine to help diagnosing hangs in TV recording in transport stream format,in particular with CableCARD devices.

22.0.36 (10/21/2016)

1. Changed: The Virtual Channel Table in ATSC TV is obtained with the new MPEG-2 Tables and Sections system.
2. Fixed: A few bug fixes in EPG scanning, especially those that might lead to crashes in ATSC scanning.
3. Changed: The WDM driver is versioned so that it's only reinstalled when something meaningful changes (instead of always).
4. Fixed: The list printing dialog was much too small on high DPI.
5. Changed: Migrated the retrieval of the Master Guide Table in ATSC TV to the new MPEG-2 Tables and Sections system.
6. Fixed: An incorrect variable type was used in TS type TV recording codes. This might fix some bad behaviors.
7. Changed: Added more error checking in ATSC EPG OTA scanning.

22.0.35 (10/18/2016)

1. Changed: Updated DVB EPG content types to include the latest type 12.
2. Changed: Changed the way to determine how much time to spend on parsing EPG data per channel. Hopefully this will speed up the process without causing missed entries.
3. Changed: Switched ETT section parsing in ATSC in-stream EPG scanning to the new system of MPEG-2 tables and sections.
4. Changed: Reverted unintended behavior changes of MCC 22001 in recent builds.
5. Fixed: Pressing escape after editing a field in-place accepted the changes instead of discard the changes.

I have been looking for a replacement for iTunes for my fairly large (2TB - 220,000 tracks) library for a number of years. On a PC, iTunes is slow to boot, slow to add tracks, slow to search, and generally more unusable with each release. I've tried Songbird, foobar and MediaMonkey, and went back to iTunes each time.

A friend recommended JRMC and I have now ditched all my other audio player software - this is very fast, has a small system footprint and does what I want. Fine for accessing data from a NAS across a wired network. It has not replaced XBMC as a HTPC video player for me yet since (as far as I can tell so far), it has to work from its own database, it won't just list file trees on the fly like XBMC will in file mode.

Very happy with JRMC and it's ended a painful 7 year relationship with iTunes for me. :)

The J.River product here does NOT just cost $40. You are signing on to a lifetime of paying again and again. Each year or so, they fix bugs add some new features and try to charge you again for the next release. After several years of these shenanigans you could have bought a new computer. Besides, their program is very confusing. Their .447 version mysteriously deleted your music files from you hard drive, without warning!! And they have a very bad reputation for censorship on their forums for anyone who dares to challenge them. You need this like a hole in the head!

Apr 12, 2008 Version: .475 OS: WinXP Ease: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

After trying many HTPC software titles, this is the one you want if don't want a simple dumbed down software. It does just about everything and the support is terrific.
