.31 - Fixed small memory leak
.30 - ??

1.11 Beta
- PID stripping support*
- MPEG-2 audio now supported when converting TS to MPEG-2

- Option to create sequential "clip" files**

- Fixed an old memory leak in scan_channel_info() function
- Fixed problem with some transport streams not displaying a preview when "Show Progress Image" is checked
- Fixed missing preview display on Progress dialog for MPEG-2 conversion on some transport streams
- Fixed missing videoaudio on MPEG-2 conversion for some transport streams
- Fixed input path not being applied after selecting files from Explorer(Note: if a .tri file is selected, the path is set to the path to the transport streams NOT to where the .tri file was selected)

*What does it do and how do I use it?
- Ability to remove channels
- Removes NULL packets
- Removes PSIP defined packets, i.e. SST(System Time Table) and tables defined in the MGT(Master Guide Table), i.e. (RRT)Rating Region Table, EIT(Event Information Table) and EET(Extended Text Table). The MGT(Master Guide Table) and VCT(Virtual Channel Table) are re-created containing only the channel(s) that were selected, OR choose to remove ALL PSIP packets.
- Updates Program Association Tables(PAT) and Program Map Tables(PMT) and remaps the video and audio PIDs.
- Automatically removes other unnecessary PIDs
- Automatically selects the video and audio pids for the channel(s) selected.
- Renumbers the continuity counters so that there are no continuity errors

Select the Channel(s) you want to keep(remember, "select-to-keep", NOT select to get rid of) in the Channel box by checking its box. The video and audio PIDs for the Channel(s) you selected are automatically checked in the PIDs check list box. You can deselect items in the PIDs select box if you want. For example, if you don't want to keep ANY PSIP packets, then uncheck that box, although the newly created PSIP packets that contains just the channel name(s) that H2 creates are very small. Now do all of your normal editing stuff and your ready to go.

**what does it do and how do I use it?
The "Clip" button is a toggle button. Selecting the "Clip" button dims the "Max Size" entry box and indicates to H2 to create each marked Include section as a seperate sequential file instead of re-packaging the Include sections based on the value specified in "Max Size" entry box.

- Drag and Drop support for TS and .TRI files onto H2 desktop icon from Explorer
- Double click of .TRI file in Explorer starts H2 and auto loads files

- Tweaks to scan_channel_info() to improve pid detection

1.10.5(Merger of Alan Haverson's code and Cris Moore's code)
- Hot key short cuts
- Basic ContrastBrightness controls
- Specify fixed location for .TRI files through .INI file

- Possible freeze during file transitions

- Auto save of region edits
- Mouse wheel steps by i-frame

- >>| Seek to End would not move the bar to the end of the slider
- Crash in Progress dialog when showing progress image
- |<< Seek to beginning would not display first i-frame
- Channel resolutions were sometimes swapped

- ResolutionFPSAspect RatioBit Rate not displaying for some transport streams
- No preview picture for some 720p streams
- No preview picture for WB HD transport streams recored with TSReader
- Channel display now favors PSIP data if available and now displays digital and analog channels. If no PSIP data is available, you will get the familiar NONAME channel

1.10b - ????????
- Fixed program stream bug.

1.10 - ?????????
- This version introduced a bug in the conversion to program streams.

1.09 - ?????????

1.07 - 2-23-2002
- GR: Recognise AccessDTV's strange sync byte mangling (0x47, 0x72, 0x29).Packet alignment per file support (.adtv files not ts packet aligned).Support for progress bar of total conversion.Improved I-frame detection, detect if picture packets are I-frames in case GOPs are missing.

1.06 - 2-19-2002
- Forced all files to be cut on I-Frame boundries. Now files start on I-Frame's withGOP (group of picture) packets.

1.05 - 2-18-2002
- Added channel detection, support for outputting files greater than 2GB, and bettererror correction. Also changed the program to start a new file after a selectablesize has been reached.

1.04 - 19-1-2002
- FINALLY fixed problem with AC3 audio stream from HBO streams. AC3 packets from HBOaren't aligned to the MPEG 0xBD packets, and they don't start in TS start packets occasionally. Solution is to just skip packet starts where there is no AC3 packetsync. Seems to work pretty well.
Fixed pack PTS timestamps so that the time displays in DVD players are accurate.One minute is now really one minute. There's still a problem with some DVD playerspicking up the PTS in the video frames, but we'll save that for later.
Integrated this file with both the HDTVtoMPEG2 projects and the bcdmux projects. That way changes to this file automatically are reflected in both projects.

1.03 - 16-1-2002
- Fixed problem with AC3 audio stream from HBO streams. AC3 packets from HBOaren't aligned to the MPEG 0xBD packets. Bit of code realigns them.

1.02 - 13-1-2002
- Fixed problem again with some TS streams not having an adaption header onTS packets marked 'START'. This was causing some of the streams not to convert correctly.

1.01 - 8-1-2002
-Fixed a problem with some TS streams (ABC) not having the RANDOM bit inthe adaption header set. Now just looks for the 'start' bit. I thinkthis will get A-B frames at the beginning of a video, but it seems to work.

1.0 - 8-1-2002
-First version
