Pending Captures: Yellow Recording Dot Countdown Minutes in Clock Face until a pending capture is to start (if < 10)
Capturing: Red Dot as before and Number of active captures in Clock face (if < 7)
3. Update EPG to scale channel names by length of their composite words. Longer words will reduce font to avoid overflowing header row.
4. Update KB-EPG to fit more channels on page.

Version JC.292
1. Tested fully working with Windows 11
2. Updated Stationdata to ACMA October 2021
3. Update Tanuki Wrapper to 3.5.46
4. Update Compiling Java to 11.0.13+8
5. Flipped Calvi theme background image 180deg
6. Added Force Sleep options to the Tray Application
Option to select either S3 Sleep or S4 Hibernate
Forces Sleep after ~15mins of no captures pending or active
Only operates when the active Power Plan/Profile has "TVSP" in its name
To use this feature, either add/create a custom plan (or rename an existing plan) with the name "TVSP"
Make sure the plan is set to either never sleep/hibernate, or set to longer than 15 minutes eg 20 minutes.
To rename an existing power scheme:
A. type powercfg.exe -getactivescheme <Enter>, to get the GUID.
B. type powercfg.exe -changename <Insert GUID here> "TVSP" <Enter>, to change the name
The tray icon changes to show sleep mode (yellow moon) in the corner when actively counting down
The sleep and hibernate will of course keep waketimers active.
There is a popup after the 15 minutes asking the user if they want to delay the sleep,
this self clears in 10 seconds if no input detectected and then will Sleep/Hibernate.
To prevent sleep normally just either turn it off or change power plans to one without "TVSP" in its name.
e.g. I use pre/post scripts on my HTPC for this to change profiles when I run Kodi, for Acronis backup etc.
Pre script is something like,
powerconfig.exe /setactiveprofile <Guid of "Always On" profile>
Post Script is something like
powerconfig.exe /setactiveprofile <Guid of "TVSP" profile>
Note: The process uses hardly any additional resources (which was already near zero) to countdown and check power state.

4. Small changes to kb-epg
5. Added a check for Microsoft Visual C++ 2010.SP1 Redistributable to the installer and option to download and install if not found.
This is required as since JC.283 all binaries are compiled with VS2010 and the corresponding runtimes are not bundled with fresh installs of Windows 10.
The installer will check the registry so the vc redist must be correctly registered. Simply copying the dll's will not pass the test.
Likewise the installer does not check for existance of the actual vc files so if there is an issue uninstall and reinstall the runtime.
They are named "Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable" or "Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x86 Redistributable" in Apps & Features
Only one is required x64 for TVSP-x64 and x86 for TVSP-Win32

Version 4.0.10

- implement a java-script dynamic call to make the browser reload the security ID number when the page loads this forces the browser to load a new number on forward and back actions

- implemented an edit task page and change the way the pre task is selected
- show child items on main schedule list page
- add a system summary to the main page
- reorganise settings and options, all settings/option links are now on same page, makes config easier
- added multi file capture for overlapped schedules, this captures each overlapped schedule to a separate file using the one capture device and maintaining the start end time buffers for each file. This only works for TS-MUX captures. You need to enable it in the Server Config page (Capture.merged.separate=1)
- added delete form to schedule list page to allow easy deletion of old schedule items

- fix a bug with the simple interface skin, use the default main EPG XSL skin file.
- fix a bug in the Capture Engine that would crash WS if an incorrect card ID was passed to the get flowing function
- add jump to position for the auto-add items, this allows you to set the position of an auto-add item to anywhere in the list

Removal of CaptureEngine.dll
Due to the decoupling and removal of the CaptureEngine.dll and most of the JNI calls a few things did not make sense to add back in, this was a considerable rewrite of the DirectShow integration. The main reason for doing this was to move any potential buggy native code and drivers outside the Java machine to increase stability of the core scheduler. While this is a large functional change to Web Scheduler it does not change the way WS works, in fact as a user you should not see any changes at all, perhaps a few loggin changes but that is all. These changes meant that the following features of WS are no longer available:

- Error tasks
- Concurrent tasks
- System power off warning and override (suspend override still works)
- 10 min imminent action period before a capture for suspend warning
- KB LED indication of running captures

There has been a lot of confusion as to what this feature does, it is so you can get multiple files from merged schedules, a merged schedule is when multiple schedules on the same channel merge to make one schedule item. Normally you would end up with one big file with all your programs in it, this new option lets you split the files out so each merged schedule ends up with its own file including the start and end time buffer overlapping bits. This means you will end up with multiple files with some overlapping bits thus you will use a bit more disk space but each of your programs will be in its own file thus you can watch or each of them separately.

Version 3.1.3
Two small bug fixes for the KB interface and the win32 binaries are not compiled with Visual Studio 2005.

The install package is bigger due to the fact that the Version 8 C++ runtime DLL's are now packaged in the installer.

Version 2.24.2

- Use left single click to open browser and right single click to open status window.

Version 2.24.1

- Launch the default web browser with the main WS url by single clicking on the WS tray icon (this browser will be launched as the System user if you are running ws as a service or whatever user WS is running as)

- Add a system shut-down hook to clean up the hidden windows and tray icon when WS exits

- Add Up/Down actions to the Epg Auto Add items in the KB interface

- Add a Source URL link to the Program details pop-up if the source url info is available in the XMTV data for each program (this requires the latest JavaXMLTVGrabber2 see attached files)

Version 2.24.0

- Add the option that will set the from header in sent email, this will allow you to set a custom name instead of the default "WebScheduler" one that was forced before.

Version 2.23.5

-Fixed a problem with the FileWriter filter using to much system cache memory
-Added the latest pvrx SOAP changes from Niall

Version 2.23.3

-Make a heap of changes to the way HTTP data is downloaded this should help with time-out errors and also connection time-outs if the data load times-out do not continue with loading and abort without parsing the XML so WS keeps its old XMLTV data instead of blanking all Guide data. These changes effect the HTTP source an the Web Service source.

Version 2.23.2

- Dec date if time is less than 6 am when vewing EPG (NOW) so we get the correct days worth of data
- Add &days=6 to IceTV URL so only 6 days worth of data is returned by default.

Version 2.23.1

- Fix the scroll-To in the EPG to for Schedules that start before 6am
- Make sure all schedules are shown in EPG even if they start before 6am in the day shown
- Roll the IceTV settings over into the main HTTP Guide data source settings to simplify the options page.

Version 2.22.12

- Add new function to select the best cell (item) then moving up and down channels in the KB EPG
- If merge is set to TRUE in server properties merge items as they are added for manual add and EPG add, this works just like the Auto-Add merge.
- Only merge with schedule item in the WAITING state
- Add past/pending groups to the schedule list page

Version 2.22.9

- Add item status to Item Info page
- Add detection for items that are in the RESTART state to the main timer loop, they should never get to this point so reset them if they do
- Add D1 and IceTV URL's to help text
- New Auto-Add items are added to the top of the Auto-Add list
- Add WM_QUERYENDSESSION message catch to stop Power OFF when WS is capturing
- Add the IsDialogMessage call so we process WM_COMMAND messages in the dialog message loop
- Use javaw.exe instead of java.exe with the wrapper

Version 2.22.8

- Add date HTTP headers to help stop caching problems
- Stop multiple instances of the same device being added to selected devices list
