Change Log DVBViewer Pro 7.1.0.0

Added/Change/Fix: EPG Window: Various enhancements on the Timeline tab, particularly for people who like to use it for channel selection:
Change: Playing a channel by clicking the channel button now only requires a single left click (previously a double click, which is still required for channel switching via the EPG item buttons). A right-click on a channel button allows to select the channel for Picture in Picture via the context menu.
Added: Possibility to select a channel and scroll it into view by typing the first letters of the channel name. If the interval between two subsequent keypresses is more than half a second, the key buffer is cleared and a new search started with the next input.
Added: The Timeline now marks the currently selected channel (not necessarily played channel) with a yellow frame around the channel button, so the selection remains visible even if the channel has no EPG or the selected EPG item has been scrolled out of view.
Added: Two new items in the Timeline context menu:
Simple Timeline View (previously only available as tweak) switches to the timeline style of version 6.1.2 and earlier. It lists more channels in a given area, because the lines contain no EPG sub-heading, thus requiring less space. Additionally the simple view doesn’t use different colors for indicating the genre of programs.
Show Channel Logos: Displays channel logos in the timeline instead of channel names (provided logos are installed and available for the channels). Please note that logos can’t be displayed in the simple timeline view because there is not enough space for them. As substitute DVBViewer adds tuner type icons to the channel names.
Fix/Change: The width of the channel name column and the height of the header row (containing the time) on the Timeline tab were not scaled according to the Windows text size. In “simple timeline view off” and “show channel logos off” mode channel names are now displayed with word wrap in up to three lines, thus showing long channel names completely.
Change/Added: The filter dropdown list on the “EPG at…” and “Timeline” tab has been replaced by a button. It opens a popup menu containing the filter options “Only TV Channels”, “Only Radio Channels”, “Only Favorites” and on the Timeline tab additionally “Only Channels With EPG”, allowing to also include channels without EPG. The options can be combined arbitrarily, except “Only TV Channels” and “Only Radio Channels”, which are mutually exclusive.
Added: EPG/Teletext: Tweak “Remove (German) gender-neutral language” (→ launch Tweaker.exe). If activated, it replaces German forms of gender-neutral language in the EPG and teletext by generic forms, either masculine or feminine: 0 = unchanged (default), 1 = masculine (Musiker*innen → Musiker), 2 = feminine (Musiker*innen → Musikerinnen). Please note that the setting is applied to EPG data when it is received, not to data already stored in the file epg.dat. Thus it may take time until a change fully takes effect, unless the file is deleted.
Added: Channel List: Tweak “Use tuner type icons in channel lists” (→ launch Tweaker.exe). It replaces the media type icons (video/audio) in channel lists by tuner type icons indicating the reception type (DVB-S/T/C or Internet TV/radio. This is useful if the channel list contains a mix of channels from different sources.
Change: Channel List: The root folder and Video/Audio sub-folder icons in the channel list have been replaced by other icons.
Fix: Channel List: The Picture-in-Picture button in channel list toolbars was always disabled and wrongly showed “Back” as hint on mouse over.
Added: Channel Editor: If a (TS) stream channel list entry is selected or New → Stream has been performed and the Address input line is the active element, Ctrl + U copies the URL of the currently played stream / the file path of the currently played file to this input line. This allows to copy the URL of a HbbTV video to the channel list, for example. Previously HbbTV URLs could only be retrieved from the DVBViewer.log after playing the video in debug mode.
Fix: TV/Radio Playback: Playback → Rebuild Playback did not work if a live stream was played that was not present in the channel list, particularly internet TV/radio channels that were automatically started from German DVB-T2 HbbTV. Additionally, after switching playback off, these channels could not be played again without tuning another channel first.
Removed: TV/Radio Options: Needless “Channel plus/minus switching delay” checkbox. The delay can as well be switched off by setting it to zero.
Fix: TS Stream: Channels using the HLS format were played and recorded without audio if the broadcaster used MP4 segments that contained both video and audio, not separate segments.
Fix: Recorder: Options → Recordings → Auto split on channel data change was not handled correctly, particularly in case of dynamic program switching by the broadcaster, as performed by the German ARD when switching to regional editions of a program and back to the main program.
Fix: Recorder: Memory leak on each recording start.
Fix: Timeshift: Timeshift was stopped unnecessarily on video/audio A/B switching.
Fix: Timeshift: Unnecessary warnings when using Stop in timeshift mode (supposed to stop timeshift when it is active).
Change: Main Window: The main window now automatically becomes the foreground window (by temporarily switching to “always on top”), if an urgent message appears in the OSD, e.g. announcing a shutdown after a timer recording.
Added: Main Window: If the support for visual impaired users is active, the text panel with EPG information that covers the TV picture can now be hidden / shown by pressing Ctrl + Enter, without affecting other features for the visual impaired. Previously it was not possible to switch the text panel off except by deactivating the support for the visual impaired completely.
Fix: OSD: If DVBViewer was started with activated support for visual impaired users (implicating a deactivated OSD), switching the support off did not reactivate the OSD. It required a DVBViewer restart.
Change: OSD: The Recordings page now also displays the year of the recording date (previously only day and month).
• Fix: UPnP Selection Window: Toggling the “Show Thumbnails” option in the context menu let DVBViewer freeze, if the item list on the right was empty.
• Fix: Picture in Picture: Timing issue if Picture in Picture was started on a second monitor with the EVR as video renderer, causing playback to remain in stopped state.
• Added: Remote Control: A simulated keyboard keypress on each remote control keypress signals user presence to Windows, thus letting it return from “Away Mode”.
• Change: HbbTV: Some optimizations.
• Change: Plugins: Measures against “evil “plugins stealing the DVBViewer input focus when they get initialized, particularly on recording/timeshift and picture-in-picture start (see here).
• Change: Hardware: DVBViewer now avoids unnecessary automatic TS Stream device creation on internal device availability checks.

Can I receive PayTV and can I also watch IPTV?

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.
