Version history/Release notes:
DVBViewer Pro 5.2.9
In Memoriam - Lars Gehre

Add: Main Window: Resizing by dragging the edges keeps the aspect ratio of the video display area. Dragging the corners works as before.
Change: Main Window: The window sticks to the screen edges when it is resized with the mouse wheel.
Fix: Main and GUI Skin Window: Aero snap is prevented while resizing
Add: Main and GUI Skin Window: Snapping to the desktop edges under Windows Vista / 7, issues when moving the napped window are solved.
Add: GUI Skin Window: Resizing by dragging the lower right corner and holding the shift key down keeps the aspect ratio of the video display area. Dragging without shift key works as before.
Fix: GUI Skin Window: Resizing with the mouse wheel invisibly changed the size of the main window
Fix: DVBViewer Windows (general): Keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C etc. disabled using them for standard functions (Select All, Copy...) in focused input fields
Fix: Channel List: Auto-scroll did not work when expanding a node.
Fix: Channel Editor: The return key didn't start the search function.
Fix: Scanner: The scanner didn't read ATSC Clear QAM channels correctly, thus creating "Service XXX" entries to which no EPG data could be assigned.
Fix: Timeshift: Timeshift files weren't written correctly after selection of ATSC subtitles
Fix: Timer Recordings Window: The Special Action -> Transponder Dump option didn't work.
Fix: Timer Recordings Window: An incomplete input in the start/end time fields disabled using most other control elements.
Add: Timer Recordings Window: Carry from minutes to hours and from hours to the date when exceeding 0 minutes/hours in the start/end time field.
Fix: Instance Management: Bug causing a resource leak under Windows 7 and preventing Tweaker.exe from detecting that DVBViewer Pro is running.
Fix: Instance Management: A second DVBViewer instance accessing the same configuration folder could be launched by using "as administrator".
Change: Browser: Enhanced default browser detection by using a new method (applies to EPG Internet search function and teletext URLs). A per-user browser selection now takes preference over global Windows settings.
Change: Database: dbconvert.exe isn't launched automatically anymore when DVBViewer is launched (only required when updating from DVBViewer Pro 4.3 or earlier, has to be performed manually now for converting the database to the new format).
Change: Teletext-Window: Start page input field for teletext search function removed (the start page can be selected directly as well).
Fix: Teletext-Window: The "Match whole word" option for the teletext search function was reversed (previously unchecked = whole word, now checked = whole word).
Fix: Setup: The setup.xml was written twice when DVBViewer was closed, causing the setup.bak to be a copy of the current instead of the previous setup.
Change: Setup: If an xml file can't be loaded because it is corrupted or not present, DVBViewer recreates it by copying the content of the according .bak file (if available).
Fix: KeyTool: Without a previously used key the key file selection was not displayed as intended
Update: Tweaker.exe to version 1.0.4
Update: DVBViewer Filter to version 3.8.0
Fix: Tweaks: The tweak that was supposed to let DVBViewer assume ISO 6937 character coding didn't work correctly.
Fix: EPG Character Set: Wrong EPG character set selection under certain circumstances.
Change: EPG Character Coding: The setup doesn't contain the file Huffman.dll anymore because it has been integrated in DVBViewer.
Fix: EPG Internet Search: The internet search in the EPG Window failed on some sites if the search item contained non-ASCII characters (e.g. umlauts). Please copy the new EPG_URLList.ini file from the installation directory to the configuration folder. It contains additional entries indicating if UTF-8 character coding must be applied for a site.
Fix: EPG Window: Numerous TV Guide issues fixed.
Fix: EPG Window: An incomplete time input in the time bar disabled using most other control elements.
Add: EPG Window: Carry from minutes to hours and from hours to the date when exceeding 0 minutes/hours in the time bar.
Fix: EPG Window: The date selection in the time bar was limited to 7 seven days ahead.
Fix: Hardware Options: If two or more equivalent free devices in the hardware list were set to "Preferred" DVBViewer selected the last instead the first one.
Fix: Hardware Options: Sorting the device list with drag & drop followed by OK/Apply caused a memory leak and possibly access violations.
Fix: Hardware Options: Canceling OK/Apply due to an ongoing recording caused a memory leak and possibly access violations.
Fix: Hardware Options: Useless "Rebuild Graph" on file playback after OK/Apply removed.
Add: Hardware Options: "Last Channel" is performed automatically if OK/Apply interrupts TV/Radio playback.
Fix: CI/CAM: Dynamic PMT changes of scrambled channels didn't work with Digital Devices cards
Fix: RTSP Device: A longer lasting RTSP tuning process could let the SAT>IP server stop the stream for other active RTSP devices in the same application because „still alive” messages were sent too late.
Fix: RTSP Device: Channel redirection didn't work as intended and caused an RTSP device to block for some time (only applies if the Recording Server is the RTSP server).
Change: RTSP Device: Code restructured in order to make it less error prone.
Add: Playback: Support for HEVC video. Requires DVBViewer Filter 3.8.0 and LAV Filters 0.59 or later.
Add: Playback: Support for AES3 audio. Requires DVBViewer Filter 3.8.0 and LAV Filters 0.58 or later.
Add: DirectX Options: HEVC decoder selection
Fix: Zoom: Under certain circumstances the video resolution was detected as 0 x 0 causing the View → Zoom 25%...200% functions in the context menu of the main window to set it to zero size.
Change: Picture in Picture: Code cleanup.
Fix: RDS: The accidental activation of RASS picture reception caused occasional beeps or saving of pictures in the configuration folder\images subdirectory when playing certain German radio stations.
Fix: VOD Source Filter: URL detection for Vimeo. Links work again.
Fix: Tweaks: Wrong default for "Use EVR Video Processor" option.
Fix: OSD Volume Bar: After 24 days without rebooting the PC the volume bar remained endlessly on screen.
Fix: OSD Help: The OSD menu timeout was unintentionally applied to the OSD help pages.
Fix: OSD Timeline: After entering a channel / favourite number the according channel entry wasn't marked / selected correctly in the OSD timeline.
Fix: OSD Menu: Moving the mouse within the video display area removed the focus from the currently selected OSD menu item, so OSD OK had to be pressed twice for selection.
Fix: OSD Default Skin: Dialogs didn't perform "page down" on first arrow down key press.
Fix: OSD Popup Windows: Closing DVBViewer with open OSD popup window (help or EPG details) caused an access violation.
Fix: Subtitles: Subtitles remained on screen when performing "Close Graph" while they were displayed.
Fix: Subtitles: Teletext subtitles didn't disappear immediately when switched off.
Fix: Digger Game: Small memory leak after the first level with enemies
Fix: HbbTV: Redirection of websites didn't work reliably
Fix: HbbTV: The AIT Parser didn't write the AIT links to the debug.log and COM DataManager.

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

i have tried so many DVB appz, but never found something like dvbviewer.
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.
