Version history / Release notes / Changelog:
3.3.8 available

If you're upgrading from a previous release, remember to make sure you stop NextPVR before running the upgrade.

Changes:
- fixed problem with new multi file screen in Recordings screen when a failed recording was present
- major changes to schedules direct support. Schedules Direct have moved to a new API. To support this, there is new screens in NextPVR for managing lineups, entering zip codes etc.
- added support for ATSC major.minor numbers. You can now have channel numbers like "12.2".
- fixed a problem with sort order of new multi file screen in Recordings
- fixed a couple of bugs with the new Freesat EPG option introduced in the last release.
- fixed an unhandled exception that could happen on the Recordings screen
- the multi-record feature is now possible on analog/HDPVR/HDPVR2/Colossus/IPTV/Prime devices. For these types of devices it's not as useful as digital tuners, but still gives some advantages like the ability to get overlapping recordings on back-to-back recordings on the same channel (with padding in both).
- changed app to make it compatible with Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio Decoder for AAC audio.
- colored red/yellow/green/blue flags now included in export/import of recordings
- fixed a problem where re-entering a directory in icon mode could cause the start of the list to become offset, appearing like one or more blank spaces at the start of the list.
- fixed bug with webclient that cause server to try running a music file locally aswell as client.
- adds support for detecting changes to the desktop resolution when running in fullscreen mode (to avoid problem where user was ending up with a fullscreen app not filling the screen after machine had been asleep)
- fixed a problem where trailing slash was not added to new media directories added until the user revisited the settings screen for a second time.
- added support Hauppauge Colossus2.
- slight change to the way the devices tab loads, so that the entire screen is drawn before it goes off looking for devices.
- changed "don't record duplicates" logic to fix a scenario that could occur with multiple recurring recordings picking the same future episodes to record.
- fixed a scenario that could cause Recurring not to be created in the case of a conflict.
- fixed a problem where EPGEvent's would lose all but first genre/cast/crew when stored as cached copy in recording
- install process attempts to create firewall exceptions for NextPVR.exe, NRecord.exe and NDigitalHost.exe. Hopefully this will get rid of some of the HDHR new user problems.
- improvements to duplicate detection logic to better cater for users that switch from mc2xml to schedules direct.
- now forcing a reload of the channel list when a device is deleted, so that the Settings->Channels tab always reflects the correct list of channels
- RECENTLY_DELETED entries now use the current time, rather than the original recording time.
- improved duplicate detection logic to better handle movies.
- fixed a problem where escape key wouldn't back out of select audio/subtitle popup
- fixed a problem with API for updating recurring recording advanced rules.
- PromptForDeleteAfterPlayback no longer prompts for delete if you were watching an in-progress recording
- added a popup to control the DVB Subtitle delay. This popup is accessed via Ctrl-D
- added a work around for channel ids changing in mc2xml generated xmltv files
- added cast/crew support for xmltv
- fixed a crash with DVB scanning on transponder with huge number of channels
- added support for LCN v2 channel numbers, which are starting to be used in some DVB countries (like Singapore etc).
- changes to metadata API to better support multiple metadata plugins.
- added metadata plugin for TheMovieDB
- fixed problem where it would go to the new details screens even when the show didnt have any description, leaving you a very blank screen.
- recurring recordings no longer limit potential recordings to those after the start date of the original show used to create the recording.
- slight change to the way config.xml is saved to resolve issue where user could end up with a corrupt config.xml when their disk was full and it attempted to save the config
- updated NEWA

Tried and Tried to make it work with my Hauppauge 1600 and no dice. The older version works great. Maybe I am doing something wrong. Needs to have a downloadable instructions or something.

I've tried all the free/commercial PVR software and this is the best by a distance. If you have a hardware encoder based card (e.g. PVR150) then you must give this software a try. It is a pleasure to use and has superb support from the author.
The software is very stable and never misses a recording (which you can't say for most other products). It plays back all my videos, DVD, Music with excellent picture quality. In addition an excellent web interface & support for XMLTV/ZAP2it makes scheduling a breeze.
There is also a very active plugin/skinning community.
This software is superbly suited for a dedicated HTPC and is so easy to use that you can confidently give the wife the remote control.

This just has to be the best HTPC tool on the planet, it supports multi tuner configurations be it analogue or digital and my wife and I use it on a regular basis, I have just about tried em' all and this is hands down the best, forget the rest this is the business.

When I made the mistake of buying an MS media center computer and learned that it only records in dvms, I was really upset. After some research and finding this program that works wonderfully with MVP, my mistake, I found, was not so great afterall. But GBPVR IS.

GB-PVR is one of those tools that's incredibly useful, yet always 'almost there.' It does everything I want it to do (i.e., it'll record what I want when I want it to), but the UI needs some work, so getting it to do what I want is a little clunky. For instance, the 15 second pause that occurs when you go from live tv to timeshifting shouldn't happen -- the buffer should always be going -- and I can't forward over the commercials anyway since it doesn't appear to work correctly in this version. Likewise, I can find out when all the Globe Trekker episodes are on -- but I occasionally find that the EPG has been messed up from my last update. I could go on, but I'd be too critical of a piece of software that, like I said, actually does what I want (and at a good price, of course.) One other wish: This software should be open source. One-developer solutions are fine for small projects, but something of this size and potential requires input from more than one persion.

After some initial struggle with channel # ('til I found the TuningAssistant util), it's beautyful!
Thought I was fine with WINTV and the Scheduler - Boy, was I wrong!
One thing tho - the documentation is non existant, the wiki pages slow as molasses (and not very packed with info)
But where are the skins?
The perfect companion for my Hauppage PVR250 card.
The day I build a HTPC, I'll use GB-PVR.

If you own a hardware mpeg-2 encoding card, or a DVB-T card, this is the only software you'll ever need to PVR and much more.

What a great program!

I actually was on the market looking for a new capture card to replace my old and tired Hauppauge WinTV USB(uhhgg...). I ended up buying a cheap PCI software capture card off NewEgg. Before it arrived, I found this program, and realized that it requires hardware encoding capture cards. So, I ended up buying a Hauppauge PVR-150 at Circuit City($99). The card itself is a great buy, but this software makes the value of it come to life! Everything works like it should, except the volume is a little loud, and I can't find an option to control captured volume.

If your capture card isn't listed on the website as compatible, you should still download it to check out to compatibity. In the Config shortcut under Capture Sources >> Add/Edit >> Recording Source >> Settings >> Capture Card Type, will show the full compatibility list(not just what's shown as compatible on the website).

This is by far the most usefull peice of software that I have ever downloaded off videohelp.com. BY FAR(Even compared to VDub)!

Update!

Since purchasing WinTV PVR-150 and Media MVP 1000 (2), so far this is the only PVR and media center to use with these hardware products from Hauppauge! Still need to run some Windows XP SP2 registry tweaks, change some BIOS settings, move the default LIVE TV folder to another drive instead of the default. Once you do all of that you can enjoy using GB-PVR!

For freeware, this is a good application. Its only been around for a year and has come along way and more features and card support coming all the time. To note, it only supports hardware based encoding cards, but as others have pointed out you can still use other features.

It has excellent support Hauppauge's Media MVP and makes this box very usuable. It supports multiple MVP's each of which can be showing different recordings, though you can only have as many live tv sessions as you have turner cards.

For EPG's you can use xmltv and support for some online guides has been added. As for the comment made about zap2it, this is a free service. You have to fill in a survey once every 3 months, but that's not much to ask for.

There are some timeshifting features missing (ie. FW, RW) but these are to come along in a future release.

Mulitple tuner cards are supported along with various output devices (PVR350, XCard, MVP, etc), plus there is the option to develop your own plugins.

All in all, this is a good choice and worth checking out.

GB-PVR, well what can I say, the program works with Zap2It TV Guide, which you get a few months for free under the GOLD plan, but after that you'll have to pay.

It's pretty good interface with Zap2It Guide for all your local Cable and Digital Cable TV for me (Comcast). This program if you had the right capture card in my case nope. You would be able to record right off this guide with a simple click of your mouse.

Also has a TV program or show search like you get from your Comcast Digital TV box, but GB-PVR is easier than what Comcast give you, then again a DVR box would be a better bet.

This program also features type of server base system so you can view your recordings throughout your network, but I haven't tested that feature well that's right I don't have one of those capture cards on the authors list.

Should you be lucky to have a WinTV, PVR 250 or 350 cards, then this freeware Recorder/Guide/Server is just right for you. I am going to use my Pinnacle PCTV Pro with WinDVR and Titan TV Web Guide for which by-the-way it's for free. Does the same thing as GB-PVR but over the internet you can right click on the TV show you want to record from your Cable or Digital Cable TV (Comcast) and it will do it with your WinDVR 3 has a button that launches the web site right away!

Very simple and easy to use program. Being free I think it is great. I don't use it to watch live tv, but captures flawless with my pvr-250 card.

Just a couple of bad things I have found

- when searching through shows you can't type in anything, you have to go through the letter, then alphabetically through to find the show

- File name just puts the date and time in the name, it would be nice to have the name of the show and title of the episode.

Right now I am only using this for the media server aspect of the program, but I must say, it runs great, its only a few mb's in size and it is pretty intuitive to use. My TV capture card isnt supported by it, so Im not sure about the recording quality, but even as an interface this is a great little program.On computers that were running the Mediaportal, it ran easily twice as fast. I cant give it a ten because I cant verify the recording function, and I also had trouble with keeping aspect ratios on certain DIVX files. But this one is in it's infancy and I think it shows great promise.
