Change Log DVBViewer Pro 7.0.2 (Bugfix Release)

Fix: OSD: The OSD record indicator was not updated on a channel change if the toolbar was hidden in the main window (particularly in full screen mode).
Fix: Music Options: FreeDB Audio CD lookup did not work anymore, because the service was closed. It has been replaced by GnuDB.
Fix: Timer Recordings Window: Changing the TV or Radio Format for a scheduled recording in the Timer Recordings window did not work. After Apply the format was reset to the standard format specified on Options -> Recording Timers.
Fix: TS Stream: A wrong calculation of time stamps for MP3 streams (particularly internet radio) with 44.1 kHz sample rate could cause periodically interrupted playback after 20 to 30 minutes.
Fix: Recorder: Audio frames (particularly AAC frames) that were not aligned with the data packets, misled the audio format detection of the recorder repeatedly and yielded wrong entries in the recording log (see here).
Added: Timer Recordings Window: “New Timer” item in the context menu of the timer list (shortcut Ctrl + N). It deselects the current timer item, resets the timer input area to default values (as specified on Options → Recording Timers), sets the start time to now and the end time to now plus one hour. Previously an empty line in the timer list had to be clicked for it.
Added: EPG Window: Picture in Picture menu item in the context menu. It makes Picture in Picture available on the “EPG at…” and “Timeline” tab.
Added: Hardware: Possibility to flag devices in the hardware database with “needs tuner type selection”, so that tuner type selection is enabled for them on Options → Hardware, thus avoiding the necessity to change it in the file hardware.xml. Up to now this applies to HDHomeRun devices and the Hauppauge WinTV-dualHD ATSC Tuner (see here).
Fix: Timeshift: The DVB hardware used for timeshift recording was not released correctly after a “Keep Timeshift File” on/off change. Besides that issues after using TV/Radio → Stop Timeshift Recording were fixed.
Added: Timeshift: Tweak “Delete timeshift files automatically” (→ launch Tweaker.exe). By default it is switched on, so that DVBViewer deletes timeshift files automatically (e.g. on a channel change). Please note that timeshift files must be deleted outside DVBViewer if this option is switched off, so that they do not fill up the whole hard disk over time. It is recommendable to configure a separate timeshift recording folder for facilitating it (see Options → Recordings).
Added: EPG: Experimental possibility to supply IPTV channels with an EPG if the same channel is received via DVB-S/T/C. The mechanism is based on a user-created text file EPGPairingList.txt in the configuration folder that specifies source and target EPG-Channel-ID pairs. DVBViewer and also the Media Server check if the ID of received EPG entries matches one of the source IDs in the list. If yes, a copy of the EPG entry is stored with the target ID. Please note the following:
EPGPairingList.txt must contain a pair of EPG-Channel-IDs per line, first the source, then the target ID separated by a comma. Everything preceded by double slashes (//) is regarded as comment and ignored, as well as lines that can’t be read as a sequence of IDs. Example:
562954315180093,1995469939489785 //Das Erste HD (DVB-S) -> Das Erste (Internet)

IDs must only appear once in the file, no matter if as source or target. Otherwise unpredictable behavior or even a crash may occur. If two or more channels shall receive the same copied EPG, additional comma-separated IDs can be appended to the line, e.g.
562954315180093,1995469939489785,2223050546878918 //Das Erste HD → two targets

EPG-Channel-IDs are copied to the Windows clipboard by selecting the channel in the DVBViewer Channel Editor and pressing Ctrl+G.
The source channel frequency must be tuned for supplying the target channel(s) with EPG data. Tuning the target channel won’t do it.
If the URL of an IPTV channel changes, the EPG-Channel-ID also changes, so that the corresponding entry in EPGPairingList.txt must be updated.
For technical reasons the copied EPG data is internally flagged as “External” (as if imported from somewhere). Therefore displaying external EPG must be allowed for the target channel in the Channel Editor (it is by default).
Since loading EPG data from the Media Server removes all external EPG data in DVBViewer (thus also copied EPG data), the Media Server should do the EPG copying in this case.

Playback and recording of PayTV is supported for DVB cards/adapters with integrated CAM and valid subscription. With the spread of fast internet connections streaming television gains more and more followers. Consequently the DVBViewer features not only playback and recording of DVB-S/C/T but also IPTV.

This is the first thing I found on this page that worked, and the demo indeed works well.
I guess I’ll have to buy it.
