SmartDVB is an unpretentious digital-tv watch application for satellite, terrestrial or cable TV cards. Emphasis has been put on overall speed and user experience on the desktop concerning DVB operations like scanning and channel viewing. It also has basic HTPC functionality through OSD, which will be improved in the future. If you're looking for a solid DVB experience using the current renderer technologies like EVR (Enhanced Video Renderer), try it out! Full description.

Version history/Release notes:
v0.3.5 Release

fixed: smartosd channel list (floating/fullscreen) seemed broken.

messages sometimes too).

v0.3.5 Release test

added: optional favorite filter to epg search (might not be very efficient atm).
modified: udp stream now restarted after making sure video headers etc have been received (could improve webinterface integration at some situations).

demand(channel list group properties).
fixed: side by side windows event error log should be removed now.
modified: some minor cosmetic modifications to the epg search results.
added: compact list view mode to epg search.

Great software! Although the interface looks just a teensy bit outdated - who cares in view of the rest!
I got a Terratec Cinergy HTC Stick (USB-connection) a few days ago. The delivered software is a Terratec-version of DVBViewer. Alas, took almost 4(!) hours to detect all the available DVB-C channels and channel switching takes sometimes up to 15 or 20 sec. The interface looks a bit smarter - but recording options are close to none especially regarding video/audio quality.

Here SmartDVB outsmarts! Seeking all available DVB-C channels took less than 5 minutes(!) (same hardware, same system), channel-switching is smooth and fast, i.e. instantly!
And there are numerous settings available in the recording section. Have to try those yet.
Keep up the good work!

"...unpretentious digital-tv watch application" - maybe "unpretentious", but for me (i own a Leadtek PxDVR3200H tunercard) it's working in really fullHD, crystal-clear and without any problem, with only 5-8% use of CPU. Thanks to the author!
