Complete Version history / Release notes / Changelog


23.0.94 (1/12/2018)

1. NEW: Added right-click menu on "Television" branch in the left pane in Standard view. This allows a quicker way of accessing some of the TV options, such as "Manage Devices", "Manage Channels", etc.
2. Fixed: Changing TV tuner device order (in "Manage Devices") might not take effect until MC restarted.
3. Fixed: Selecting the Television view in the tree and refreshing would no longer have the item selected.
4. NEW: Animated GIF image support
5. Fixed: When MC was closed while an OTA EPG scanning was going on a confirmation was not shown.

7. NEW: The base path of the Rename, Move, & Copy Files dialog is a combobox that remembers the last entered paths.
8. Fixed: When the user changed EPG loading schedule, the change might not immediately take effect until the next previously scheduled silent loading was executed.
9. Fixed: Thunderstorm checkbox text wasn't readable.
10. Fixed: File tagging following CD ripping wasn't working.

23.0.93 (1/5/2018)

8. NEW: Added the shortcut Ctrl+, and Ctrl+. to switch to the previous and next track (useful during tagging).
9. NEW: Added clickable media type icons to PlayPower list of control sequence actions. Simpler to set the media types each action applies to.

23.0.92 (12/20/2017)

1. Fixed: When using the audio Convert Format tool to convert from files that don't support tags (e.g. wav/aif when tag option is de-selected), the metadata in the database did not get added to the new file.
2. Fixed: Doing a Rename, Move, & Copy Files with no boxes checked on a file would make the program show a tagging error message.
3. Changed: The Wave format encoder now supports a configuration dialog to set whether or not tags are to be stored in the Wave file. Previously this was only available from the 'Advanced / Configure Input Plugin' option selection on the Audio options dialog.
4. NEW: OSD "Lip Sync" adjustment.
5. NEW: Added MCCommand MCC_PLAYBACK_ENGINE_VIDEO_LIPSYNC_ZONE (28044) for adjusting lip sync and saving the result in zone setting (instead of saving in individual file). Keyboard shortcuts CTRL+SHIFT+COMMA, CTRL+SHIFT+PERIOD, and CTRL+SHIFT+SLASH, are associated with this command.
6. NEW: On "Manage TV Channels", the first two columns ("Channel" and "Channel #") can be in-place edited.
7. Changed: FormatNumber(...) allows trailing zeroes on decimals (previously it would crop them).
8. Fixed: Starting image playback of a single image with the 2D image viewer could immediately switch to the next track.

11. Fixed: Scheduled tasks Engen component was not showing actions that could be performed on devices, such as TurnOn, TurnOff, etc.
12. NEW: PlayPower actions can now operate on specific selectable media types. You can select one or more applicable media types for each action. Previously only Audio media types would work.
13. NEW: Made Ctrl+G toggle the tree state between collapsed and expanded instead of only collapsing.
14. NEW: When TV recordings are to be deleted, "Remove From Library", and, if the format is TS, "Send to Recycling Bin" are offered in addition to "Delete Files permanently" in the confirmation dialog.
15. Fixed: Several bugs in the TheaterView Lighting plugin, including the "All On" and "All Off" commands not working reliably.
16. Changed: The TheaterView Lighting plugin configuration dialog now verifies the presence of an Engen server rather than blindly trying to use whatever is entered for a URL.
17. NEW: The 'Connect' button on the wr.jriver.com/<accesskey> web page works with Panel.
18. NEW: Panel - The Engen button will only appear if the Engen server is running.
19. Changed: Panel - The Engen button will now redirect the user to the Engen server URL set in Media Center, instead of using the current URL and changing the port.

23.0.91 (12/12/2017)

1. Changed: Italian translation updated (thanks Matteo).
2. Fixed: Pausing OpenCable and SatIP live TV would cause TV to stop buffering new data in recent builds.
3. Changed: Made the Library Views submenu nest child browser schemes like they're nested in the tree so the full path shows in the menu.
4. Fixed: TV recording conflicts were not properly displayed on Library Server clients.
5. NEW: Panel - Added a stop button to Panel.
6. Changed: Panel - Made most category buttons larger.
7. Changed: Panel - Gave user created category buttons random colors.
8. Fixed: Panel - The number of plays stat was being increased repeatedly under some conditions.
9. Fixed: Panel - Pages were constantly scrolling to the top with touch devices.
10. Fixed: A possible locking error with a string used by the web engine. Hopefully fixes a weird DLNA crash.

23.0.90 (12/8/2017)

1. Fixed: Export playlist from the file menu wasn't working properly (only the right-click export would work).
2. Changed: When doing lip-sync adjustment using keyboard shortcuts (SHIFT+COMMA and SHIFT+PERIOD), the final result is saved in PlaybackInfo tag of the file, instead of the zone-specific settings, except when the file has Media Subtype of "System" (i.e. a calibration file).
3. Changed: When doing lip-sync adjustment using keyboard shortcuts (SHIFT+COMMA and SHIFT+PERIOD), the result is saved only for the particular display type (i.e. 24 Hz display vs. other displays).
4. NEW: When doing lip-sync adjustment using keyboard shortcuts (SHIFT+COMMA and SHIFT+PERIOD), an OSD message is shown to indicate current offset value.
5. Changed: When doing lip-sync adjustment using keyboard shortcuts (SHIFT+COMMA and SHIFT+PERIOD) on live TV, the final result is saved in PlaybackInfo tag of the TV channel.
6. NEW: DLNA rewrote the entire controller function. Added logging to all DLNA Controller functions.
7. Changed: DLNA controller function "Ignore Transport Events" will also not subscribe to those events. MC can now control any DLNA renderer in polling only mode.
8. Changed: DLNA controller function "Ignore Get Position failure" will allow streaming only devices to work as if they were reporting position. It uses Getprotocolinfo to determine whether or not the device is alive. This will co-exist with the "Ignore Transport Events" function as well.
9. Changed: DLNA controller. Standardize function timeouts.
10. Fixed: DLNA controller is more efficient making device calls. It only does so when it really needs to.
11. Changed: Display of playback information in a DLNA zone which MC is not controlling is smooth and efficient.
12. Changed: DLNA controller. SetNextAVTransportURI logic streamlined and made more bullet proof. NOTE your device still MUST support GetMediaInfo as well as SetNextAVTransportURI for gapless playback.
13. Changed: DLNA controller. If SetNextAVTransportURI is NOT disabled as an option and we find a device doesn't support it or is broken MC will automatically turn off that option in the controller settings.
14. Changed: Display of playback information in a DLNA zone which is transitioning tracks as the result of a SetNextAVTransportURI is very fast now.
15. Changed: Update of the time slider in DLNA zones is more accurate and smooth. There MAY be issues with broken renderers. Need feedback here.

23.0.89 (12/6/2017)

1. Fixed: Views with complicated expressions to group by didn't evaluate properly.

23.0.88 (12/6/2017)

2. Changed: If the articles ..., (, ¡, or … are added to the article list, there won't have to be a space after them for them to get ignored.
3. Fixed: Media Center could possibly crash when showing television views in recent builds.
4. NEW: Added the smartlist rule "Only matches of" that will find files that have matching artists and albums (for example).
5. NEW: Added the smartlist rule "Only differences of" the will find files with different values in the selected fields.
6. Changed: Added the command "Build Missing Thumbnails..." to the Tools > Advanced Tools menu.
7. Changed: Panel - Changed the default number of items per page from 50 to 200.
8. Changed: Panel - Paginated pages are now pushed to the history so the back button won't ignore them.
9. Fixed: Panel - Panel was redirecting all connections to use port 52199, breaking Panel if a different port was set.
10. Fixed: Panel - When changing pages in folder views, the page was not returning to the top.

23.0.87 (12/4/2017)

1. Changed: Made the option to not translate hot keys when running as Media Server actually unregister the program for hot keys so hopefully it won't catch them anymore (before it would catch them but not translate them).
2. NEW: WIA devices (scanners) show up under Action Window > Camera in the device list.
3. Changed: The computer no longer goes to deep sleep while it's serving DLNA files.
4. NEW: Added the zone ID and index to the tooltip for Playing Now zones.
5. Changed: DLNA: Some devices were slow responding, especially to the SetAVTransportURI function. Made the timeout for these longer than the default. Was resulting in "Something went wrong with playback" errors. Added logging for this as well.
6. NEW: Added the device address to the tooltip for remote zones.

23.0.86 (12/1/2017)

1. NEW: Individual playlists can be added to Theater View navigation (Options > Theater View > Items to Show).

8. Changed: Updated to Monkey's Audio 4.32.
9. NEW: Added the choice of Playing Now to the play command in the scheduler to start playback of whatever is in Playing Now.
10. Fixed: Right-click on a playlist and picking Export Playlist didn't switch the view to that playlist so it could fail to export or even export the wrong playlist.
11. NEW: Added a "Recording Conflicts" column to television Standard view EPG for to be recorded entries. The column is available in "All Programs", "Favorites", and "To Be Recorded". Users need to opt to show the column.
12. Fixed: DLNA when the option was added to allow the formats to be specified for conversion in the DLNA server Audio settings, there wasn't a default value so nothing was getting converted. This won't fix existing installations, the formats will need to be selected on them but new installations will work as previously intended.
13. Fixed: MC could not read metadata tags in some WAVE files in recent builds.

23.0.85 (11/27/2017)

23.0.84 (11/21/2017)

1. NEW: The confirmation message box in "Clean up time-shifting folders" tool has a "Yes, and apply to all remaining x folders as well" button, so that one can clean up all remaining folders without additional confirmation.

3. Changed: Updated to Monkey's Audio 4.30.
4. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).
5. Fixed: Recent versions weren't playing some APE files.
6. Changed: When TV time-shifting needs to jump forward due to channel changing, the process is serialized to prevent multiple threads from doing the same thing simultaneously.
7. Fixed: Sat>IP TV recording could not be done in TS format.

7. Changed: Setting the Filename (path) field with an import rule will fix the directory path (add a slash at the end) so that the path cleaning functions that remove directories with dots, etc. run.
8. Changed: The expression customization (like in the player area display) allows using the variable [Library.Path] to show the path of the current library.
9. NEW: You can customize the number of thumbnail text lines (and then we'll wrap instead of truncate) by picking "Thumbnail Text Lines" from the view header menu.

1. Changed: During import, a file will be resolved to the full network path and that filename will be checked for import as well. That way importing from M: that maps to Media and from Media will not import twice.
2. Fixed: WMDM didn't sync the disk number properly so if a file had a disc number, it would sync over and over.
3. Fixed: The MC installer was not removing old versions of some Panel components. They weren't causing problems but were needlessly taking up space.

6. Changed: Improved TV guide data by importing these fields (if present in xmltv file): writers, presenters, aspect ratio. Improved TV/Movie rating tag by distinguishing MPAA rating and MPAA rating advisaries.
7. Changed: If guide data file indicates that a show is an HDTV show, "HDTV" is added to keywords field.
8. Changed: When MC tries to determine whether a program has been previously recorded, or already scheduled to record, Program ID trumps everything else (such as program title, series title) that a user specified to compare.

10. Fixed: Restoring the tree with Help > Check for Updates wouldn't redraw properly.

7. Changed: The behavior of pressing record button on remote control in Theater view televsion guide is changed. If the show has not been scheduled to be recorded yet, pressing the record button sets the show to be recorded. Pressing the button on a show already scheduled for one-time recording changes the one-time recording to a subscription. Pressing the button on a show scheduled for subscription cancels the subscription.
8. Changed: The Unswap expression function understands Jr., Sr., etc. and does the unswapping special when those are present.

21.0.36 (1/13/2016)

1. Changed: When a search for television programs in Standard view does not find any programs, the text message in the Programs window is changed to "Search did not find any matching programs" instead of "Double-click here to set up a program guide." Double-clicking will do nothing.

21.0.30 (12/22/2015)

1. Fixed: DSP Studio was blinking with VST effects installed (the fix is wider and might also make drawing in general more efficient).
2. Fixed: When a TV channel was being watched on a single client at the same time also watched on the server, changing channel on either the server or the client would cause the channel changed on the other computer.
3. Fixed: Logging could crash MC under some circumstances.

1. Fixed: The Chromium Web Engine did not render properly on HighDPI displays.
2. Changed: Red October HQ uses madVR v0.89.17.
3. Fixed: Pressing delete during an image slideshow was no longer working (the fix meant reenabling the delete shortcut in fullscreen but then ignoring the command if it comes and the UI is fullscreen -- testing appreciated)
4. NEW: Added MCC_CLOSE_QUICK_SEARCH to close the quick search box (21034).
5. Changed: TheTVDB lookup can look up tracks that don't have a season or episode number and will now look up just by the episode name.

5. Changed: When loading XMLTV EPG data, all relevant fields are updated, instead of only updating those that are not empty. This prevents wrong data from being retained.
6. Fixed: MCWS would send an unexpected server error response after the normal response when receiving HTTP POST requests with Keep-Alive.
7. Changed: Added a timeout to stopping auto-import threads to fix a possible hang.
8. Changed: Adjusted television channel logo display in Guide so that the logos keep their aspect ratio. Also increased the border width around the logos so they do not appear touching each other.

13. Fixed: When setting the playback range back to an empty value the duration wouldn't update to the whole file (now it updates the library from tags on that change).
14. Fixed: When loading XMLTV EPG data, re-run flag was not saved when its value was false. This caused previously saved bogus "true" value not to be corrected.

21.0.25 (12/01/2015)

1. Fixed: When switching tabs, the delete command would still route to the previous tab in some cases.
2. Fixed: Fixed problems in the CD Labeler program where dialogs with checkboxes, scrollbars, and other elements were not displaying properly. Skinning was removed from CD Labeler and will return when MFC is removed from it.
3. Fixed: When TV time-shifting reader filter performed seeking, it could try to wait for more data to be buffered than the buffering reader was set to buffer, resulting in unnecessarily long wait.
4. NEW: In Theater View television guide grid, a green triangle is added in front of the program name of a currently playing show.
5. Fixed: GIF images ended up with a JPG extension when getting artist images.

21.0.24 (11/24/2015)

1. Changed: When loading on-line EPG data, MC will create programs for all channels that match a given xmltv ID, instead of just creating them for the first found matching channel.
2. Optimized: The amount of time required for performing "filling in gaps with dummy EPG program info" (feature introduced in build 21) is significantly reduced.
3. Fixed: If in-place editing was used to change the filename field to an invalid value (like blank, or a name without a path), MC would not report an error and the data for that file could be lost.
4. Fixed: The 'Delete' accelerator would translate in fullscreen and want to delete the files that were behind the playing view.
5. Changed: Added 'Playlists' as a type to the new Action Window Tag page so that you don't have to use Custom(Playlists) to view playlists.

4. Fixed: Search Window magnifying glass icon was offset too far to the right on scaled displays.

21.0.21 (11/14/2015)

1. Changed: The splitter in Playing Now is now zone specific so that having two Playing Now views open will allow independent setting of the splitter.
2. Fixed: The skin's close/maximize/restore/minimize buttons were offset to the right in popup windows (off the edge of the window).

14. Fixed: Using the Move/Copy Fields tool on the Date field would end up with wacky values in the date (because it's actually a floating point number) instead of taking the value and interpreting it as a date.

3. Changed: The jriver namespace fields from jr: to jriver: to match the previous use of presenting the access key. A side effect of this is that all builds in use must be greater than 20.0.52 to use the volume leveling feature(this is only useful on a MC renderer from a MC server NOT doing conversion).
4. Changed: The spacebar isn't translated as play / pause when a list control has the focus.

6. Changed: The space bar shortcut for play/pause is not translated in Theater View so that the search in some views works.
7. Changed: WebGizmo views say WebGizmo instead of Gizmo.
8. Fixed: DLNA: The new delete dynamic libraries functions was slow (generating too many M-SEARCHes).
9. Changed: Action Windows that are editing a playlist have a 'Click to view playlist' button at the bottom (the title text is also a clickable link).
10. Fixed: Importing CUE files would not reliably import the first track.
11. Changed: Empty playlists that have the name "New Playlist" or "New Smartlist" are purged when the program loads.

12. NEW: Added an image height and image width field that gets filled when thumbnailing.
13. Changed: Spacebar always fires play / pause instead of only when full screen is focused (experimental change -- may not remain).
14. NEW: DLNA: Pushing audio files in "original format" from a JRiver server to a JRiver renderer will send along the R128 Peak and Volume leveling values. This allows the renderer to do the volume leveling (if the option is enabled in DSP studio).
15. Fixed: Media Center could crash when searching through WebGizmo or MCWS.

12. Changed: Change 9 of previous build is modified as follows: If user has specified a time to automatically refresh television programming guide, MC will refresh the guide on or after the specified time, or 20 minutes after any previous runs, whichever is later.

4. Changed: Tightened up television time-shifting writer code, to prevent seeking problems.
5. Faster: The program is more responsive when many tabs are open.
6. Fixed: ASIO line-in playback could crash.

6. Faster: Gets on the filename field are around 20% faster.
7. Changed: Album Artist is no longer included when offering search suggestions (since it often duplicates artist, and even when it doesn't normally doesn't contain a useful search value).

1. Fixed: Playing a television recording that had not finished recording did not work in some cases since build 91.
2. Changed: While playing a television recording that has not finished recording, pressing number keys will no long show OSD message "Changing channel..." since channel changing would not take place in this case anyway.
3. Changed: Pressing Enter key right after pressing number keys (for television channel changing) will cause channel changing to take effect immediately (without the Enter key, channel changing takes effect on a timer).

7. NEW: Exceptions to articles can be added[ by starting an entry with - (example: ...;les;-les paul;... so that Les Pecheurs de Perle > P and Les Paul > L).

19.0.85 (12/2/2013)

2. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
3. Changed: Linked zones were not appearing in the zone roller of Theater View.
4. Changed: The translation engine considers backslash a phrase-breaking delimiter (so 'ab' is now two phrases 'a' 'b' instead of one phrase 'ab').

6. Fixed: Saving an image that contained transparency to JPEG could create an incorrect result (applies to web service, etc.)
7. Fixed: When MC stopped television recording, in rare cases it incorrectly tried to show live program while the user was not even watching, resulting in hang or crash or other odd behavior.
8. Fixed: Made it possible to translate some strings that were not translatable from this thread: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=84639.0
9. Changed: The regular list item tooltip will not be shown when the mouse is over a cell that requires a truncation tooltip that's multiple lines.

9. Fixed: Customization to the playerbar would not always take effect right away.
10. NEW: Added 'Set levels from decibel meter' button to Room Correction to make it easier to calibrate levels.

19.0.50 (10/2/2013)

1. NEW: Added View > Size option to resize Standard View (only works well with some skins; Noire recommended).
2. Changed: Memory playback automatically disengages when using Audio Calibration for Tools > Advanced Tools (since audio calibration clips will play forever until stopped).
3. Changed: Audio Calibration clips always use gapless track transitions (instead of possibly gapping or fading based on user options).
4. SDK: Skin items can specify a Scale attribute so that high resolution images can be used (ie. Scale="2.0" for a double resolution image).
5. Fixed: When watching an on-going television recording in transport stream (.ts) format, not all of the already recorded portion was shown, if the portion was longer than the pre-set time-shifting window.
6. Fixed: ATI HDTVWonder tuner would not record in transport stream format.
7. Changed: DSD encoding targets a slightly more conservative volume level (by about 1.6dB) so that it works better with Sabre-based DACs (and possibly others).
8. Fixed: Clicking 'Exit' in Theater View with the mouse would not show the dialog with the last couple builds.

19.0.49 (9/30/2013)

1. Fixed: Theater View could be slow to show in some cases with the last few builds.
2. Faster: Netflix in Theater View does all loading of episodes on demand, so displaying the queue is much faster.
3. Fixed: Some YouTube music videos would not play from Theater View.
4. Changed: Startup and between track silence is -96dBFS narrow band pink noise instead of pure silence so that it works better with hardware that ignores pure silence ( http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=83964.0 ).
5. Changed: Video files with TrueHD audio tracks will say 'Dolby TrueHD' in the compression field instead of 'unknown codec'.
6. Changed: Tooltips are now allowed to show in the Smartlist editor (and other places) when an edit or combobox is focused.
7. Changed: Added a help button on the popup expression editor that links to the expression language wiki: http://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Expression_Language (thanks MrC).
8. New: Add an option for ignoring specified IP interfaces for DLNA.

19.0.48 (9/27/2013)

1. Changed: When recording television programs in transport stream format, MC will insert PAT and PMT packets if it does not detect such packets in the stream.
2. Fixed: Double-clicking the right edge of a list header column to auto-size was not working.
3. Faster: Additional tuning of SSE code used for 16-bit PCM input data handling to make it another 20% faster.
4. Fixed: When the detached display was Aero snapped, it would not always be positioned correctly when reattaching.
5. Changed: Volume Leveling will disable (instead of using the default -10dB for unanalyzed audio files) when playing test clips (Tools > Advanced Tools > Audio Calibration).
6. Changed: The JRiver ASIO driver doesn't load Media Center until it's actually started for playback (instead of when the host creates buffers).
7. Fixed: Drag-n-drop reording in a list manager was not working (like DSP Studio plugins, etc.).
8. Fixed: Playback stats for images were not always updating for the last image viewed.

19.0.47 (9/26/2013)

1. Fixed: During conversion or audio analysis, the process could slow down unexpectedly if the input thread was running much faster than the output thread.
2. Faster: Core audio engine bitdepth handling code is faster when dealing with 16-bit integer input on SSE enabled CPUs (common on CD rips with lossless formats).
3. Faster: Final audio engine stage that handles clipping is about 2x faster.

19.0.46 (9/25/2013)

1. Changed: Carnac better deals with TV show filenames that use the full episode name (including season and series) as their folder name instead of using a series folder.
2. Fixed: In some cases, VOB subtitle would draw with the red and blue channels flipped (so yellow subtitles appeared blue).
3. Changed: Changed the menu and toolbar text for "Zones" and "Skins" from plural to singular.
4. NEW: Added the ability to add a 'User' toolbar button.
5. Fixed: Visualization Studio could crash in some cases.
6. Faster: More efficient and faster user interface drawing in Standard View.
7. Faster: When burning, converting, analyzing, etc. files they would redraw in lists that didn't show the status column. Now only the status column redraws (if visible).
8. Faster: Revised list and tree mouse move redrawing system so that mouse movement only redraws the row under the cursor when necessary instead of always.

19.0.45 (9/24/2013)

1. Fixed: mp4/m4a files would not play on LS clients if user chooses "Automatic" or "JRiver audio engine (using input plug-in)" for Playback Type.
2. Changed: Video playback no longer forces the 'Clip protection' overflow handling mode but instead allows flat-lining overflows if so desired.
3. Fixed: Some click handling problems from build 44.
4. Fixed: When MP3 decoding encountered bad frames, audio analysis could slow way down instead of quickly working through the errors.

19.0.44 (9/24/2013)

1. Fixed: Shell extensions were causing problems in build 43.
2. Internal: More work on mouse click and double-click handling to fix some issues with trackpads (please report any issues).

19.0.43 (9/23/2013)

1. Fixed: A couple click / mouse issues due to the internal click handling changes.
2. Changed: Analyze Audio allows analyzing up to 8 files at a time instead of 4.
3. Fixed: Memory playback could engage when analyzing audio or converting and impact the memory usage and performance of the operation.
4. Faster: Improved thread parallelism when analyzing audio (and to a lesser extent regular playback).
5. SDK: The HTML engine supports .Rating and .RatingStars variables on any file object (can be used by WebGizmo, etc.).
6. Fixed: If a video file issued a finished event before ever starting, it could cause the audio analyzer to hang on the file.
7. Fixed: Thai text (and possibly others) could draw with incorrect character spacing.
8. Fixed: ASIO Line-in playback was not working properly.
9. Fixed: A corrupt MP3 file could cause a crash when decoding in rare cases.
10. Changed: Edit control scrollbars are indented one pixel so that they're inside the edit border with most skins.
11. Fixed: The Trunc(...) math expression function could show incorrect results in some cases.

19.0.42 (9/19/2013)

1. Fixed: Theater View could crash in rare cases.
2. Changed: The installer checks for SSE2 and shows an error if it's not found instead of refusing to run (we have no way to test this, so confirmation would be appreciated).
3. Changed: Revised the check for operating system support for AVX CPU instructions to hopefully fix an issue on XP running in Parallels (testing appreciated).
4. Fixed: When a client request a television channel that the server is already running (either recording or serving other clients), a black rectangle is drawn on the upper lefter corner of the server.

19.0.41 (9/18/2013)

1. Changed: Added support for SSA/ASS subtitle custom margins in the styles block.
2. NEW: Convert Format allows optionally specifying an audio output bitdepth.
3. Fixed: A corrupted APE file could cause decoding to stall in rare cases.
4. Fixed: Television tuner specific configuration dialog was not displayed.
5. Fixed: MadVR fell out of exclusive mode on OSD with TV playback.

19.0.40 (9/17/2013)

1. Changed: A processor that supports SSE2 is now required (added in 2001 to Intel, 2003 to AMD).
2. NEW: Added a 6 dB/octave mode for high and low pass filters in Parametric Equalizer.
3. Changed: The import summary is presented as an Action Window and only shows a popup and switches to 'Recently Imported' if a user clicks 'Details' on the summary.
4. Fixed: The new JRTelevision Dll did not work.
5. Internal: Revised left mouse click handling so that single, double, and triple clicks are generated by JRiver's framework instead of the operating system (should be internal change, but please report any mouse related issues).
6. Fixed: The installer could incorrectly want to reboot when it couldn't install the shell extensions.

19.0.39 (9/16/2013)

1. Fixed: Some handheld devices would not appear in the last few builds (due to the internal COM changes).
2. Faster: When loading Theater View backdrops from multiple sources, all sources are loaded at once instead of loading one at a time.
3. SDK: MCWS/v1/File/GetFile allows specifying a custom mime type for the response (to deal with carriers or ISPs that may block or throttle MP3 data).
4. Faster: Netflix queue is downloaded 2 to 3 times faster due to using parallel threading. Cancel works better.
5. Fixed: A few rare MP3 files could get slow to play or analyze.
6. Fixed: The brightness / contrast skin effect could overflow and look bad when using SSE acceleration.
7. Fixed: The removed FTP upload tool could incorrectly appear in the send to menu ( removed when MFC was removed: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=75971.0 ).
8. Changed: The JRiver ASIO driver allows the host to configure the driver buffer size instead of keying off Options > Audio > Live playback latency (this way programs that query for the buffer size of all ASIO drivers on startup won't cause MC to start).
9. Changed: Socket buffer size to 32k.
10. Changed: Allow re-use of the base socket listener for library server (non-windows versions).
11. Changed: Adaptive Volume in 'Peak Level Normalize' mode would not use a fixed gain in some cases where it should have.
12. Internal: Switched television engine from an MFC COM control (MJTVControl.dll) to a regular DLL (JRTelevision.dll).


19.0.38 (9/10/2013)

1. Fixed: The installer would always register the 64-bit shell extensions, leading to cases where shell extensions could show in Explorer when the option was off in MC (manually turn on, OK out of options, then turn off, and OK out of options to fix).
2. Fixed: The custom library backup path validation could unnecessarily create the default folder.
3. Changed: Rewrote several core MMX image manipulation routines in SSE (most around 2x faster and now work cross platform).
4. Fixed: The visual mouse over state for an edit control would not always be honored properly.
5. Changed: Adaptive Volume in 'Peak Level Normalize' mode normalizes on a per-track basis when Volume Leveling is off and on a per-playlist basis when Volume Leveling is on.
6. Fixed: WPD camera acquisition could fail in the last few builds due to the internal COM changes.
7. Changed: MC has a white list of device names that support system volume while bitstreaming, and no longer disables the system volume slider when playing to these devices (if you have a device like this, please provide details).
8. Fixed: Audio device names with pipes or backslashes in them could cause problems in Options > Audio.
9. Changed: Added experimental support for ASIO DSD output to devices that do not specify a DSD buffer format like Teac, maybe others (feedback appreciated).
10. Fixed: If auto-import got canceled while analyzing audio, it would record it as an error and not try again for a year.
11. Fixed: Column auto-sizing was not working in some areas.
12. Fixed: The projection aspect ratio was inconsistent when switching between some 3d visualizations.


19.0.37 (9/5/2013)

1. Fixed: Playback of some YouTube music videos was failing.
2. Changed: The CSV text copied to the clipboard when copying from a list uses tab instead of comma as the delimiter.
3. Fixed: Playing YouTube videos, MC would not resume playback after entering buffering state.
4. Changed: Switched convolution based image effects (sharpen, emboss, etc.) to use SSE instead of MMX (should be internal change, but please report any issues).
5. Changed: MC will now read and write replay gain (Volume Level) tags in Windows Media files.
6. Fixed: Loopback was not working in the last couple builds due to internal COM changes.

19.0.36 (9/4/2013)

1. NEW: Added native support for little-endian PCM AIFF files (previously only the more common big-endian or floating point AIFF files were supported natively).
2. Changed: Copying list items to the clipboard generated RFC 4180 compliant CSV data (previously some special characters, newlines, etc. were not formatted for RFC 4180 compliance).
3. Changed: Copying list items to the clipboard puts CSV into the text area of the clipboard (instead of having different text and CSV formats).
4. Fixed: If something triggered a Standard View view switch while Theater View was showing, it could steal the keyboard / remote focus.
5. Fixed: MC could not read and write replay gain tags in APE tags that used replaygain_track_gain style naming.
6. Changed: MC no longer adjust replay gain value internally by 6 dB (should be internal change, but please report any issues).

19.0.35 (9/3/2013)

1. Fixed: Seeking during YouTube playback could cause extremely slow network traffic from the server.
2. Fixed: After acquiring images from a camera, the program would not always update and show the 'Recently Acquired' playlist.
3. Fixed: TiVo Server could fail to run in some cases in the last few builds.
4. Fixed: Several issues from COM changes in build 34.
5. Changed: More tweaks to Noire skin.
6. Changed: Adaptive Volume is locked at the #2 position in DSP Studio (Output Format, Volume Levelling, and Adaptive Volume happen at the front of the audio chain, other effects happen JIT at the end).
7. Changed: The automatic library backup system will switch to the default backup location when a user specified folder is no longer valid.
8. Changed: Help > System Info was missing the device manager information on Windows 8.
9. SDK: Added MCWS/v1/File/Played function to update play stats, Scrobble, etc.
10. SDK: All MCWS/v1/File/* functions accept a library key or filename (to use a filename, set FileType to Filename).
11. SDK: Added MCWS/v1/Playlist/AddFile to add a single file to a playlist.

19.0.34 (8/30/2013)

1. Fixed: Doing a YADB track lookup could hang when using a file that required DirectShow for decoding.
2. Changed: DVD rips now use Carnac for better decoding of series/season/disc# information in disc volume name.
3. Internal: Made usage of COM opt-in instead of opt-out for worker threads. Please report any issues.
4. Changed: Updated Chinese language files (thanks kelijun).
5. Fixed: Some phrases were not translated.
6. NEW: MC can record television channels on CableCARD devices in transport stream (.ts) format.
7. Changed: Improved internal engine quality when playing 2x DSD input, using processing, and outputting 2x DSD.
8. Faster: Improvements to DSD output encoding to reduce the chance of buffer shortfalls.

19.0.33 (8/29/2013)

1. Fixed: Adaptive volume would sometimes not apply (fixed) volume adjustment on already analyzed files.
2. Fixed: The Direct Sound buffering slider wouldn't save the value.
3. Changed: Additional updates to the default Noire skin.
4. Changed: Added some logging to the ASIO driver to trouble-shoot hosts that load the driver but don't actually use it (which can cause MC to launch).
5. Changed: SRT subtitles suppress mystery <32> and <35> markers used by Swedish public television.
6. Fixed: When the system short date format used the month as a string instead of a number, it could cause date parsing to make incorrect guesses with regards to day and month ordering for ambiguous dates like '3-4'.
7. Changed: Date parsing of three numbers (like 3-4-12 or 2012.3.4) will always assume the ordering matches the system default (unless it's a clear variant like year.month.day).
8. Fixed: Playback of some YouTube music videos was failing.


19.0.32 (8/23/2013)

1. Changed: Added support for viewing CMYK JPEG files.
2. Changed: Media Network authentication tokens last three days instead of two hours (so coming back to Gizmo after inactivity works better).
3. Fixed: MC will no longer crash when importing videos with the "folder.jpg" in the folder above it.

19.0.31 (8/22/2013)

1. Fixed: The text <font> could appear in Theater View captions in build 30.
2. Fixed: Volume Leveling could be applied when playing to a DLNA device, even if it was turned off in Options > Media Network.

19.0.30 (8/20/2013)

1. Faster: When calling the web service for images, when png is requested but no transparency is in the image, a high quality jpeg will be returned instead (makes Gizmo browsing faster).
2. Fixed: Mp4 files with embedded images were not always using the image as the thumbnail.
3. Fixed: The JRiver ASIO driver installed by MC19 could cause problems in MC18.
4. Fixed: When switching tracks with some between track modes, ASIO output could fall out of DoP mode for a split second.
5. Fixed: Deleting the last image from a slideshow could lead to a crash.
6. Changed: Text drawing system no longer supports "<font" markers without a space after them (ie. the correct <font size="150%"> works but the incorrect <fontsize="150%"> will no longer work).
7. Fixed: Playback stats were not being tracked for image playback.

19.0.29 (8/16/2013)

1. NEW: Freshened the look of the default Noire skin.
2. Fixed: The uninstaller could fail to start if a different version of Media Center was used last.
3. Changed: When searching for sidecar artwork, instead of searching only for Folder.jpg, the program will find Folder.jpg, Cover.jpg, Front.jpg (and also any image extension like .jpeg, .png, etc.).
4. Changed: When scanning for television channels, the tuner type is automatically selected according to user configured tuner type of the first non-disabled tuner in the list, instead of always defaulting to "ATSC".
5. Changed: Removed the appearance selection page from the installer.
6. Fixed: Using the new group expressions in Theater View could cause 'circular reference' errors to appear in some cases.
7. Changed: When the Analyze Audio tool is being run manually (ie. not part of auto-import), it will prevent the system from going to sleep.
8. Fixed: Tooltips in edit controls were not showing reliably (making it hard to get context sensitive help when editing expressions).
9. NEW: The target latency for live playback (WASAPI loopback, ASIO line-in, JRiver ASIO driver) can be configured in Options > Audio > Advanced > Live playback latency (remember that the output latency from Options > Audio > Device settings... is added to this latency).
10. Fixed: DVD Video burning was not working for longer duration video files.
11. Changed: .rec files will now be recognized and played.

19.0.28 (8/14/2013)

1. Changed: Opening Options > Audio will no longer load any ASIO drivers (some drivers would hang when loaded a second time if playback was happening, etc.)

19.0.27 (8/14/2013)

1. Changed: A few fixes and tweaks to the DR analyzer.
2. Fixed: The Audio Analyzer dialog was stalling on files that didn't need analysis instead of skipping them.
3. Fixed: In-place editing in the tree could get cancelled when background tools fired notifications (like when a DLNA device came or went).
4. Fixed: Renaming a library view will prompt to save changes before doing the rename.
5. Fixed: Putting an invalid field into a GroupSummary(...) expression could crash.
6. Fixed: Scrolling with the mouse wheel in a list could leave a tooltip showing.

19.0.26 (8/13/2013)

1. NEW: Expression based categories can define separate grouping and display expressions so that you can group by something like artist, but then display something more advanced with counts, number of albums, etc.
2. NEW: Group-based expression functions like GroupCount(...) and GroupSummary(...) are supported in the new category display expressions.
3. NEW: Added DR dynamic range analysis to the audio analyzer.
4. Changed: When an Action Window is maximized, the other Action Windows are hidden instead of showing them in a stack at the bottom (provides more available height for a maximized window).
5. Changed: The maximize button on the Action Window switches to a minimize button when maximized (when a skin doesn't have a maximize button, the restore artwork is used).
6. Changed: Action Windows remember their maximized state (so a maximized Tag window will stay maximized).
7. Changed: Updated Chromium browser engine to Chromium Embedded Framework 3.1453.1255 (Chromium version 27.0.1453.73).
8. Fixed: Television recordings in transport stream format could be unplayable in other applications, and could have bad quality.

19.0.25 (8/12/2013)

1. NEW: Added support for user accounts that are stored with the library and allow each user to see only certain files (replaces Access Control feature).
2. NEW: Added a 'User' library field that can be set to any combination of users to limit the contents visibility to only those users (leave blank for content to show for all users).
3. SDK: The MC command MCC_BACKUP_LIBRARY (20011) will perform a silent automatic backup when passed "1" as the parameter.
4. Changed: The program will run the automatic library code periodically instead of only at program start (so that running the program for long periods won't stop automatic backups from happening).
5. Changed: Auto-import has separate options for analyzing audio for audio and video files.
6. NEW: User can choose a time for MC to load television EPG in background.
7. Changed: Server token authentication persists across a server restart so that an authenticated client won't be forced to reconnect if the server goes down and comes back up.

19.0.24 (8/9/2013)

1. Fixed: The audio analyzer was not properly returning per-channel peaks.
2. NEW: JRSS downmixing uses per-channel peak levels from audio analysis when they're available to make a better determination about how much (if any) volume reduction is required to prevent clipping after the downmix.
3. Changed: The 'Volume Up' and 'Volume Down' roller items do not appear in Theater View when the volume is in disabled mode.
4. Changed: The error check during WPD camera acquisition makes sure the source and destination file sizes are within 2.5% instead of an exact match since some devices do not expose an exact file size (Android 4.3 in MTP mode).
5. Changed: Doing a Camera acquire shows a playlist 'Recently Acquired' that contains only images acquired in the last hour (like other recent playlists, it is automatically cleaned up after a few days).

19.0.23 (8/8/2013)

1. Fixed: When non-analyzable files were added to the analyzer, the program would dead-lock when showing the error dialog.
2. Changed: Added int(...), frac(...), round(...), and trunc(...) to the math evaluator (used in expressions, visualizations, etc.).
3. Changed: The math evaluator is double-precision (64-bit) instead of single-precision (32-bit) for floating point operations.
4. Changed: The option to not draw frames on image thumbnails is honored in grouped details lists (previously it was only honored in thumbnail lists).
5. Fixed: File creation could fail in build 19.0.22, causing several possible strange problems.

19.0.22 (8/8/2013)

1. Fixed: Importing of mp4 files that have copyright atom could cause MC to crash.
2. Changed: Vertical scrollbars are positioned inside the column header in a list instead of over it (allows a cleaner look with some skins and is logical since the column header doesn't scroll).
3. Fixed: MC could fail to load ID3 tag data in AIFF and WAVE files.
4. Fixed: MC did not write copyright tag to mp4 files.
5. Changed: MC will try reading copyright tag from a second location in mp4 files if the ISO-defined 'cprt' atom does not exist.
6. Changed: The list editing widget (used for editing keywords, etc.) puts the 'Add' box at the bottom and moves the instructions into the box for a cleaner alignment and less chance for the suggestions when adding to obscure the existing list.
7. Faster: File I/O adds a buffering layer that engages when small reads are performed so that underlying reads are never too small (a real world example where this helps is with FLAC playback over some types of wireless networks).

19.0.21 (8/7/2013)

1. Changed: The audio analyzer considers a file analyzed if it has a 'Volume Level (R128)' and 'Peak Level (R128)' value.
2. Faster: Analyzing files to decide what playback / decoding method to use is faster (makes opening the Analyze Audio dialog with lots of files faster).
3. Fixed: Files with a peak level of 0.0 dB could incorrectly be marked as needing analysis.
4. Changed: The standard ReplayGain volume level and peak level tags will not be written to tags if tagging is turned off for the corresponding MC fields 'Volume Level (ReplayGain)' and 'Peak Level (Sample)'.

19.0.20 (8/5/2013)

1. Changed: Memory playback gracefully handles cases where memory allocation fails.
2. Changed: Added 'Peak Level (Sample)' field to report the peak level found in an actual sample value (doesn't account for inter-peak overs like R128 TruePeak).
3. Changed: Added 'Volume Level (ReplayGain)' that will be filled from tags or an old MC library on import.
4. Changed: After analyzing a file, the 'Volume Level (ReplayGain)' field and tag will be filled with a ReplayGain v2 value (which is the R128 level with a +5dB adjustment).
5. Changed: When a file has a 'Peak Level (Sample)' value and no 'Peak Level (R128)' value, the sample peak will be used (with 1.5dB extra headroom added to make it more similar to R128 True Peak).
6. Changed: When a file has a 'Volume Level (ReplayGain)' value and no 'Volume Level (R128)' value, the ReplayGain value will be used with Volume Leveling (adjusted by -5dB to make it more similar to an R128 value).
7. Changed: Removed some unneeded COM initialization / uninitialization from Media Network server threads (might help with ole32.dll crashes during idle).

19.0.19 (8/2/2013)

1. Fixed: The RAW image decoding cache was not enabled for the last few builds.
2. Fixed: The 'Check for Updates' Action Window could use the wrong button width for the button (may also apply to other places where the button text changes dynamically).
3. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).


18.0.212 (8/5/2013)

1. Fixed: Exiting Theater View while the 'News' view was loading could crash in some cases.
2. Fixed: JTV video conversion lip-sync problem.
3. Fixed: The option to start playback of the current playlist would not work when MC was configured to start when Windows loaded.
4. Changed: Red October uses LAV filters version 0.58.2 (thanks nevcairiel).
5. Changed: Removed 3d text visualization (it's no longer possible to create a 3d mesh from text using the D3DX helper).
6. Fixed: A few 3d visualizations were not working properly on Windows 7 and Windows 8.


18.0.211 (7/24/2013)

1. Fixed: While playing a currently recording television show in transport stream format MC would play the ts file instead of going to the tuner that was doing the recording.
2. Fixed: MC could hang upon stopping when playing a video over the network (Library server, or YouTube etc.).
3. Fixed: Direct Sound playback would not work with devices that didn't support 24-bit audio.
4. Fixed: Video width and height fields could be filled incorrectly.
5. Fixed: When converting from jtv television recordings, the converted files would have an incorrect aspect ratio. Make sure you correct width and height problem first (see 4. above) before retrying conversion.

18.0.210 (7/19/2013)

1. Changed: Red October uses LAV filters version 0.58.1.
2. Changed: Red October HQ uses madVR version 0.86.9.

7. Fixed: DLNA bug where SetNextAVTransportURI gets called at least once even when disabled.
8. Fixed: DLNA polling interval bug, reduce chatter.
9. Changed: DLNA handle bug from some renderers which mis-spell NOT_IMPLEMENTED!
10. Fixed: A few possible cases where background threads that showed user interface could hang or cause a focus shift.
11. Changed: Added additional logging to the search suggestion system to help debug performance issues on some machines.

18.0.208 (7/5/2013)

1. Fixed: Convolution was not working in build 207.
2. Changed: Dutch language translation updated (thanks bennyd).

18.0.207 (7/3/2013)

1. Fixed: Typing in the Options search box could temporarily shift focus, causing the first letter to get replaced by the second letter.
2. Fixed: Downloading files larger than 2GB could fail.
3. Changed: Tuned how the time remaining is reported in the Action Window during downloads (to work better with large downloads and to be more concise).
4. Changed: Media Center will prevent the system from going to sleep while doing a handheld transfer.
5. Fixed: Album and artist fields in "Podcast tag and file renaming rules" now work as expected.
6. Fixed: Ogg Vorbis now fills its compression field with "Ogg Vorbis".
7. Fixed: When converting some FLAC files to ogg, it will no longer tag as "ogv"
8. Fixed: In Performer Store, following purchase of an album, the list of available assets for that album could be incorrect and the price for a track could be listed the same as the album price.

1. Fixed: Focus could shift unexpectedly in build 200.

18.0.200 (6/18/2013)

1. Changed: Switched the default ASIO option for 'Play silence on pause' to true (this provides a more straight-forward call stack to the ASIO driver, and is similar to how WASAPI works).

1. Changed: Moved back to the experimental AAC encoder for video conversions since the problem with the PS3 was fixed. Thanks Nev.
2. Changed: Simplified "Edit Channel List..." dialog (removed the checkboxes since favorite channels selection is done elsewhere now).
3. Fixed: "Next / Previous use favorite channels only" setting did not use the new favorite channels system.
4. Changed: Edit Channel List dialog allows deletion of multiple selected channels.
5. Fixed: The new system of "Favorite" and "Hidden" television channels did not distinguish channels with identical name but different tuner types.

18.0.197 (6/7/2013)

9. Fixed: Subtitles weren't working with EVR in the last few builds when using Windows 7 or 8.
10. NEW: XMP "face" data in photos now gets added to "People".


18.0.195 (6/4/2013)

1. Fixed: If an iPod failed to initialize, it could cause a hang when trying to display the error message.
2. Fixed: The option to run Theater View in exclusive mode was not working in build 194 on Windows 7 and Windows 8 (this mode is not recommended for normal use).

8. Fixed: Empty temp files are no longer created when encoding lossless Wavpack.
9. Changed: Wavpack files now display compression information.
10. Changed: When acting as a DLNA renderer, Media Center will use "error free" mode so that playback errors won't cause message boxes to display (since the controller is normally in a different place).


18.0.194 (6/3/2013)

1. Fixed: Podcasting could cause the user interface to be sluggish in some cases when first starting the program.
2. Changed: Switched Direct Sound output to always use 24-bit integer instead of 32-bit floating point (because it appears some devices don't work nicely with 32-bit floating point).
3. Fixed: MC could hang or crash when changing television channels on the fly.

3. Changed: Updated Chinese language file (thanks kelijun).
4. Fixed: Stopping or switching tracks during Library Server client playback could lead to a crash.
5. Fixed: WASAPI with event style disabled could buffer shortfall unnecessarily in the last few builds (normally sounds like ticks).
6. Fixed: If the selected output plugin could not be found, the program could switch to ASIO instead of the default Direct Sound.
7. Fixed: When connecting to a library that required a password, the program could dead-lock in some cases.
8. Fixed: Entering a 'Q' value of over 1.0 for a shelf filter with Parametric Equalizer would cause crackling during output.

8. Changed: Updated the French language translation (thanks rlebrette).
9. Fixed: If a connection to a Library Server was sporadic, it could lead to cases where a link to external cover art could be lost.
10. Fixed: Mono ALAC files were not being parsed or played correctly.
11. Fixed: DLNA slideshow push. The transition from first to second image in a playlist of images was not happening on the timer properly. This change may also make it more likely to work on devices that were having trouble with the slideshow mode.


18.0.188 (5/17/2013)

1. Fixed: In some cases, 5.1 input was not working with the FLAC encoder.

18.0.187 (5/16/2013)

1. NEW: The 'Output Format' settings are honored in DSP Studio when doing a handheld conversion (allows resampling (by each input sample rate), and channel up/down mixing).
2. Changed: When converting a file with a bitdepth greater than 24, the engine will convert to 24-bit (with dither) to feed the encoder (since few encoders support more than 24-bit files).
3. NEW: DSD files support conversion to a handheld (requires enabling DSP Studio for the conversion and picking a sample rate that will work like 44,100 or 48,000 Hz).
4. NEW: DSP Studio can be enabled during audio conversion (Library Tools > Convert Format), allowing resampling, channel mixing, convolution, etc.
5. NEW: When converting videos, a checkbox 'Convert video to audio' is provided so that you can extract the audio out of any videos and optionally apply any DSP (thanks to jmone for the inspiration).
6. Changed: When returning to Theater View, the file list will be refreshed instead of showing the last shown set of files (which could be stale in some cases).
7. Fixed: A rare crash when parsing certain MP4 audio files.

18.0.186 (5/16/2013)

1. Fixed: WASAPI was not working in non-exclusive mode in certain cases.
2. Changed: Revised the error messaging system for output plugins so that they never show their own errors but errors they raise can be shown by the framework (previously the error messages could cause a hang during video playback).
3. Changed: Removed the ASIO option to 'Display diagnostics when starting ASIO' because all diagnostics are written to the log file (Help > Logging).
4. NEW: Theater View television guide hides channels marked as hidden and adds a 'Favorite' view for favorite channels (requires resetting Theater View views in Options > Theater View > Reset!...).
5. Fixed: CableCARD tuners were inadvertently included in the list of analog devices during analog or STB channel scanning.
6. Changed: Updated Chinese language text file to reflect recent changes (thanks kelijun).
7. Fixed: The phrase "JRSS Subwoofer (x Hz lowpass)" in Output Format configuration could not be translated.
8. Changed: Hidden channels (hidden in Options > Television) are no longer shown in Standard View > Television or on dialogs that ask for channel selections.
9. Changed: Hidden channels won't have EPG data loaded for them so you will need to manually reload the EPG if you reshow a hidden channel (done for efficiency).

18.0.185 (5/15/2013)

1. Fixed: Video conversion could crash in some cases.
2. NEW: When scanning for CableCARD and set top box channels, the easier automatic EPG option will be offered.
3. Changed: The guide settings used in channel scanning and EPG loading will be shared.
4. Changed: TV channel scanning uses radio buttons to pick a scan type (digital, analog, CableCARD, etc.) and only does one type of scan each run. Run the scanner multiple times if you need to do more than one type.
5. Changed: When loading a television program guide, the question to 'keep' vs 'overwrite' guide identifiers will only be shown if auto-matching would actually overwrite something (normally it wouldn't, so the question was meaningless).
6. Changed: Simplified the wording on the scan for channels dialog.
7. NEW: When picking a television guide program in Theater View, the option 'Tag Channel' is offered. It allows making the channel a favorite, hiding the channel, or custom keyword tagging.
8. Changed: Switch Options > Television to use an options tree (allows scrolling with large fonts, supports search, allows nesting advanced, etc.).
9. Changed: Moved all TV tools that were under the 'TV Options...' button in Standard View > Television into Options > Television. 'TV Options...' now just shows Options > Television.
10. Changed: Added the ability to pick favorite and hidden channels in Options > Television.


18.0.184 (5/14/2013)

1. Fixed: AC3 encoding of output was not working nicely with video playback.

3. Fixed: Bitstreaming of audio during video playback was not working in some cases.


18.0.183 (5/13/2013)

1. Fixed: Audio Path was not correctly reporting the output bitdepth in some cases due to the new audio bitdepth system.
2. Changed: Removed WaveOut output plugin (it was a legacy mode only needed on (very) old versions of Windows that are no longer supported).
3. Changed: Merged 'WASAPI - Event Style' and 'WASAPI' into a single output plugin. If you required 'WASAPI', you may need to reconfigure your audio output settings.
4. Changed: ASIO supports encoding the output as AC3 using DSP Studio > Output Format (requires downstream AC3 decoder or you will hear white noise).
5. Fixed: When scanning for Set Top Box channels, cable channels 3 and 4 were not presented as possible channels on which the set top box fed signal to capture device.

18.0.182 (5/10/2013)

1. Fixed: ASIO playback of PCM was not working in build 181.

18.0.181 (5/10/2013)

1. NEW: Revised audio bitdepth system. Details and discussion
2. Fixed: The playerbar in Display View would not reliably reappear after hiding unless the display was clicked.
3. Fixed: Some m4a and alac files would not import or play because of a mismatched sample count in the mp4 STTS header. We now ignore this error since it shouldn't impact playback performance.
4. NEW: DLNA image slideshow when pushing an image playlist to a renderer. Follows slideshow logic that MC uses including the image duration in Options->Images->Slide Show Duration.


18.0.180 (5/8/2013)

1. Fixed: Theater View remote focus could shift incorrectly when using the on screen keyboard.
2. Changed: Switched YouTube's view order in Theater View so that 'Search' is on the left so it's a single arrow away instead of at the end of the roller.
3. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
4. Changed: Updated Polish translation (thanks Janusz Grzybek).
5. Changed: Czech language translation updated (thanks Johnny B).
6. Fixed: Digital television channel scanning was broken in the last few builds.

8. Changed: Made some tweaks in CableCARD television support.

18.0.179 (5/7/2013)

1. Fixed: Some animated areas of the program like 2D visualizations were not redrawing properly in build 178.
2. Fixed: The mouse controls could become unavailable with certain types of displays in Display View with build 178.
3. Fixed: Using the popup expression editor from an in-place expression editor in options could lead to a crash.
4. Fixed: When deleting an image from the library, the tooltip for the image could obscure the delete confirmation dialog.
5. Changed: 3GA files are treated like AAC / MP4 audio files, so they can import, play, and tag.
6. Changed: Updated Chinese language files (tranditional and simplified) (thanks kelijun).
7. Fixed: If a large Photoshop image failed to load, it could cause a crash.
8. Faster: Decoding a PSD image saved as RGB (8-bit or 16-bit color) is much faster.

1. Fixed: MC would crash recording television in TS format in the last couple of builds.
2. Changed: Updated Korean language file (thanks to Junghwnan).
3. Changed: Revised the window transparency system used by the player bar in Display View to help performance and fix a bug where it could get stuck redrawing and not hide.


18.0.177 (5/1/2013)

1. NEW: Added Theater View support for SHOUTcast (add using Options > Theater View > Add...) (it's recommended that you reset file info templates for the best experience using Options > Theater View > Customize file info panel... > Manage... > Reset All Templates To Default).
2. Fixed: Focus could shift unexpectedly to the list when navigating some rollers in Theater View with build 176.
3. Changed: Added a new stock field 'Popularity' (string that supports flexible values; web radio uses it to put something like '3123 listeners' in).
4. Fixed: The Theater View file info template option to 'Hide when empty' was not working for some fields like number of plays that showed 'never played' when empty.
5. Changed: Theater View's Playing Now shows artist backdrops when playing web radio stations that contain ICY metadata.

10. Fixed: Netflix movies were getting cut off on the right side.
11. Fixed: VCD video would not play.

18.0.176 (4/29/2013)

1. Changed: When there's a 3d drawing error, the error text will not appear for a little while so that coming out of madVR exclusive, which could require a reload of a 3d device, will look cleaner.
2. Changed: If Theater View fails to load and reloads, it will stop trying to reload after 3 reloads in 30 seconds (to avoid looping forever if something isn't working).
3. Changed: Red October will use DXVA Copy Back with nVidia hardware when possible instead of CUVID when using madVR ( http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=80258.0 ).
4. Fixed: When returning to Theater View, sometimes the input focus could be unexpectedly shifted from the list to the roller.
5. Fixed: Digital television could crash on stopping.
6. Fixed: Ceton (and other CableCARD) television tuners did not have color controls.
7. Fixed: CD Labeler was crashing.


18.0.175 (4/26/2013)

1. NEW: ASIO output supports DSD bitstreaming using DoP.
2. Fixed: Some videos during conversion would not detect the end of stream properly, so could stop a few seconds early.
3. Changed: Removed the safety valve in the video converter that would stop a conversion if it stalled for too long (Red October should make it unnecessary, and it's possible the valve triggered in cases where it shouldn't).
3. Changed: When multiple optical media disks are present, Theater View now shows the first one available rather than none.
4. Fixed: Queued files for a data disc burn could not be seen because "Show files in subfolders" button was not available.
5. NEW: Media network, add album art for xbox 360 videos.
6. Changed: Media network, fix xbox 360 conversion crashes.
7. Fixed: Crash could occur when clicking the "Rip Tracks" button in the CD header view.
8. Changed: When ripping audio from multiple drives, the 'Details' button in the Action Window jumps to the first drive instead of showing an overview view for all drives (which didn't have the same functionality so could be a little confusing).


18.0.174 (4/25/2013)

1. Fixed: The progress shown for an individual video file during conversion was not displaying correctly.
2. Fixed: Image playback from Library Server was not working in the last few builds.
3. Fixed: If the computer slowed down too much during concurrent video conversions, it could stop a conversion early.
4. Fixed: Encoding to ALAC could crash in some cases.
5. Fixed: On the Import wizard, clicking cancel when it recommended not using an empty auto-import folder list would leave the wizard in a strange state.
6. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).

18.0.173 (4/24/2013)

1. Fixed: Pressing Pause button while television was playing in non-time-shifting mode put television in partially paused state (audio continued to play while video was paused).
2. Fixed: CUE files that contained URLs in comments could lead to a crash.
3. Changed: When saving a JPEG with a high quality (90 or higher quality, which is used for cover art saving), no chrominance subsampling will be used.
4. Fixed: Horizontal scrolling in the Playing Now > Overview view was not working nicely.
5. Fixed: Long M4A files (over 10 hours) could show as 'Live' or with the wrong or empty duration in the library.

7. Changed: Flicking images from side to side with the mouse will no longer show the playerbar.
8. Fixed: Starting a playlist of images + music playing could show a "failed to load image" for the first couple images.

18.0.172 (4/22/2013)

1. Fixed: The launcher didn't have the full program name embedded in it, so file associations could show they were associated with "Media" instead of "JRiver Media Center 18".
2. Fixed: If a DLNA device requested metadata for a file that's no longer in the library (or never was in the library), it could crash.
3. Changed: When converting a video file, aggregates with names like 'Index.bdmv' and 'Video_TS.vob' will use the name field for building the new filename instead of preserving the existing filename.
4. Changed: Video conversion could stop early if the encoder paused for a while; now it waits much longer before deciding something went wrong.


18.0.171 (4/19/2013)

1. Fixed: A call to JRWorker.exe to import a file (used for video) could fail when the video was referenced in a playlist.
2. Changed: Updated Chinese language file (thanks kelijun).

9. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
10. Faster: Improved performance of dragging the thumbnail size slider.
11. Changed: Red October uses LAV filters version 0.56.2 (thanks to nevcairiel).
12. Fixed: MC could crash if user tried to stop a television playback immediately after starting to play a channel.
13. Changed: Television engine ignores Stop request if it has not finished starting to play a channel.
14. Changed: If the program is configured to use a cover art folder that is not available or writable, the default cover art folder will be used for that run of the program (the same validation runs when setting a folder and won't allow you to set a non-writable folder).
15. Changed: If the program is configured to save art next to files, it will nicely handle cases when sidecar artwork is not writable on the file system (by falling back to the cover art folder).
16. Changed: DLNA: Allow playlist manipulation in conjunction with setNextAVTransportURI.


18.0.170 (4/16/2013)

1. SDK: Added ZoneID, ZoneName, and LinkedZones to MCWS/v1/Playback/Info response.

6. Changed: When a JPEG has no tags, no IPTC tag will be written instead of an empty IPTC tag.
7. Fixed: When a CUE file pointed to a missing WAV file, it would lead to problems.
8. Fixed: MC passed some incorrect parameters to some OpenCable television devices.


18.0.169 (4/15/2013)

1. Fixed: Ceton InfiniTV (and other OpenCable devices) did not work in client-server situation (i.e. client could not play a cable channel with tuner only available on server).
2. NEW: When enabling Media Network, a wizard is shown that steps through starting the server, getting an Access Key, and selecting the best server for your renderer.
3. Changed: Consolidated the list of DLNA server presets and added a preset for Audiophile DACs.
4. Fixed: SSDP discovery (used by DLNA) was not working in some cases in builds 167 and 168.

1. Changed: Updated Theater View Weather to use the latest World Weather Online API (used when NOAA is not available).
2. Fixed: Netflix sign-in window was not working.
3. Changed: Netflix API no longer provides catalog browsing by category so that feature has been removed.

5. Fixed: When linking a zone to another zone that was already playing, not all playback settings would by synchronized to the playing zone so they might change tracks at different points.
6. Fixed: Linked zones could account for drift in a slightly incorrect way across track transitions, causing an unnecessary resync (sounds like a pause and resume).


18.0.144 (3/6/2013)

1. NEW: DLNA audio conversion when using Convert Always, added more sample rates to convert to.
2. Fixed: Skins that used glass were not working nicely with webpage and other views that needed to disable glass.

7. Faster: Returning from full screen image playback is faster.
8. Changed: DLNA: Only provide upnp:albumArtist (Twonky specific field) for devices that specifically request it. This will mostly affect display on renderers when MC is the controller. Some devices accept this field but it interferes with the standard items like {upnp:artist role=AlbumArtist}
9. Fixed: Starting bookmarked audio playback from a stopped state would put the position slider at zero instead of the bookmark position.

1. Fixed: The random number generator used for ASIO dither could behave as coherent instead of incoherent ( http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=76912.msg528601#msg528601 ).
2. Faster: The ListCombine(...) and ListCount(...) expressions are much faster.
3. Fixed: Watch marks could show unexpectedly simply because a television recording was configured to start a few minutes before the show started.
4. Fixed: Deleting a file from Media Center and disk while the file was actively being converted by the Format Converter could lead to a crash (the results of doing this will still be undefined; do not delete the original files until after conversion).

18.0.127 (1/31/2013)

1. Changed: Red October uses LAV filters version 0.55.2.
2. Changed: When using the IE web browser engine on Windows 8, compatibility mode was not disabled (causing many websites to render incorrectly, including JRiver).

5. Fixed: The Car Radio bar did not work regenerate random smartlists with each click when they were assigned to a button.
6. Fixed: Holding down a Car Radio button could leave the button in a strange state.

8. Changed: Global expression variables stored with Save(...) can be accessed by using brackets (ie. "Save(It works!, v)[v]" will output "It works!").
9. Fixed: When returning to Theater View when it was zoomed into a single file, the cursor would not be in a reliable place.
10. NEW: Added ASIO option 'Device uses only most significant 24-bits (Lynx, etc.)'. This combined with dithering provides a theoretical S/N improvement for devices where this is true.

3. Fixed: Some internet streams using wma format would not play reliably, or would play but crash on stop. (e.g. streams from SiriusXMStreamer application).
4. Fixed: Ripping multiple movie discs (DVD/Blu-ray) would sometimes show outdated information from the previous disc in the rip progress action window.

18.0.119 (1/21/2013)

1. Changed: Fixed-width dialogs scale their width when using oversized fonts (either in Options > Tree & View or through a large DPI setting in Windows).
2. Fixed: The 'Reset Settings' dialog was not working nicely with large fonts.
3. Fixed: Tooltips would not hide properly if a popup was shown while they were showing.
4. Changed: LAV's aggressive deinterlacing for MPEG-2 content is disabled for DVD ( http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=77533.0 ).
5. Fixed: DLNA audio conversion was downmixing to stereo sometimes when it shouldn't have.
6. Changed: DLNA audio conversion: when in the "convert unsupported formats" mode the DSP settings under advanced are now used. This will help when multichannel material needs to be converted to stereo (under advanced) for most devices.
7. Fixed: Thumbnails for some types of videos were not working on Library Server clients (you might need to manually do Cover Art > Rebuild Thumbnail on the client one time).
8. Fixed: Clicking 'Add Note' in the Notes view and immediately switching away could lead to a crash.
9. Fixed: The search control could show a stale tooltip after coming out of Wizard mode.
10. Changed: Convolution auto-configuration switching supports the marker _1764 for a sample rate.
11. Changed: Carnac leaves image names IMG_####, MVI_####, and SAM_#### intact (instead of changing them to Img ####, etc.)
12. Changed: If a video has a pure black frame at the thumbnail location, the thumbnailer will seek one minute farther into the file and try again.
13. Fixed: Date ranges like [Last Played]=10m-300m were not being evaluated properly by the search engine.
14: Changed: DLNA: For aggregate DVD's and MPEG2 DVD Autofps conversion, change the DLNA flags to reflect the target framerate.
15: Fixed: DLNA: When convert when necessary was set for video, mkv's with mpeg2 should have been converted (since the DLNA protocol doesn't require mkv support) but were not. They will be now.

18.0.118 (1/18/2013)

1. Changed: Updated Chinese language file (thanks kelijun!).
2. Fixed: Backed out a change from 18.0.107 that was preventing some renderers from seeing audio and image files.
3. Fixed: In some cases the search engine was not ignoring accented letters as expected.
4. Fixed: The mouse cursor was not changing properly with build 117.
5. Fixed: With certain DSP enabled, it could cause audio during video playback to skip more than necessary.
6. Changed: The mouse wheel on the position slider seeks instead of fast forward / rewinds.
7. Fixed: Mouse wheel handling was not working properly for the last few builds.
8. Changed: JPEG tagging preserves the file creation date.
9. Fixed: Interface plugin views were not working nicely with tabs.
10. Fixed: ZoneSwitch was not working as expected if the play zone was already active.
11. Changed: When attempting to play something other than audio to a linked zone, an error is shown offering to unlink and continue or cancel playback.

18.0.117 (1/16/2013)

1. Fixed: When using the Chromium browser engine and starting directly into Theater View, it could cause problems with madVR entering exclusive mode.
2. Fixed: In some cases MC would report zero files on a valid Blu-ray disc in rip action window.
3. Changed: The launcher accepts a simplified syntax for commands, so "MC18.exe /Command Pause" can be written "MC18.exe /Pause". (/Command is unnecessary for all commands, but supported for backwards compatibility)

18.0.116 (1/16/2013)

1. NEW: DoP bitstreaming supports any number of channels (instead of only stereo).
2. Changed: Audio Path displays more useful information when bitstreaming and it allows the blue light to come on (ie. direct mode).
3. Fixed: A few UI issues with build 115.
4. Fixed: Picking a sample rate in DSP Studio > Output Format could crash in rare cases.
5. Fixed: CD ripping crashes due to internal messaging system changes.
6. Fixed: Browsing for folders using the system dialog didn't properly disable the dialog that started the browse, making it possible to incorrectly perform other actions behind the browse dialog.

18.0.115 (1/15/2013)

1. Changed: Audio bitrates for video conversion.
2. NEW: Added MPEG/DVD autofps video conversion.
3. Changed: Revised mp4 and h264ts video conversion to conform to 4.0 profile (was 4.1).

18.0.114 (1/14/2013)

1. Fixed: Possible crash with build 113 due to internal changes.
2. Fixed: Gapped fade between tracks mode could have an audible hiccup when resampling using the last few builds.
3. NEW: Added 352,800 Hz as a possible resampling option in DSP Studio > Output Format.
4. Fixed: Caching of drive availability could lead to a case where auto-import would incorrectly remove a file on a hard drive that comes and goes (like a USB drive with a power switch, etc.).
5. Fixed: The mouse was not always working nicely with vertical child rollers in Theater View.

18.0.113 (1/11/2013)

1. Changed: Renamed the MP4TS conversion selections to H264-TS and made the MPEG2 more consistently descriptive.
2. NEW: Add smart frame rate conversions (_AUTOFPS). H264 targets maintain the original framerate. MPEG2TS targets convert to the nearest valid frame rate.
3. Changed: Updated the DLNA content flags.
4. Changed: the Samsung bd/tv template to remove the PS3 compat flag and to change the default conversion to H264-TS.
5. Changed: Internal revisions to how threads and messaging are handled (should be internal change, but please report any issues).


18.0.112 (1/11/2013)

1. Fixed: Calibration files that intentionally played sound out only one channel could trigger the pseudo-surround detection algorithm and cause unexpected channel mixing.
2. Fixed: An audio file that could not be parsed could cause a crash during import with build 18.0.111.
3. Changed: Updated Chinese language file (thanks kelijun).

5. Fixed: 'Update Library (from tags)' was not working with data files.
6. Fixed: Certain changes made with the 'Organize Favorites...' tool could be lost when restarting the program.
7. NEW: Added basic support for FLAC files with embedded CUE files.

18.0.110 (1/9/2013)

1. Changed: When deciding the order of "importance" of various Blu-ray playlists of similar (but different) durations for a movie title, MC now picks based on number of audio streams (if they differ) rather than duration.
2. Changed: If a NaN (not a number) or infinity value enters the audio engine, it will trigger protect mode (protect mode is a digital fuse system added to v16 that switches to silence if an invalid or dangerous signal is played).
3. Fixed: The pink noise creation in build 109 could output incorrect values for the first few samples.
4. Fixed: When deleting a file that had been zoomed automatically in Theater View, the program could go back two levels instead of one afterwards.
5. Changed: The Theater View file info panel no longer hides automatically if the focus shifts to the top roller (because that causes unexpected backs when using a mouse).
6. NEW: The low-pass fiter used for DSD-to-PCM conversion can be configured in Options > Audio > Advanced > Configure input plug-in... > DSD Plugin...
7. Changed: Updated LAV filters to .55

18.0.109 (1/8/2013)

1. Fixed: When playing a long track, volume protection could incorrectly engage and set the volume to 20% when switching to the next track.
2. Fixed: With resampling enabled, the setting to play sequential album tracks gapless would not work properly if the between track mode was gapped.
3. Changed: Switched pink noise generation to use the high quality Larry Trammell method (thanks to Larry).
4. Changed: Create Test Clips (in Tools > Advanced Tools) creates narrow band pink noise that's useful for volume calibration.
5. Changed: Updated the French language translation (thanks rlebrette).
6. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
7. NEW: DSP Studio > Analyzer reports the overall and per channel RMS volume.
8. Changed: Added new formats to the video conversion dialog.
9. Changed: Removed non-streamable conversion formats from DLNA video conversion.
10. Changed: Tweaked WMV conversion.
11. Fixed: Recording a TV channel with channel name containing some special characters might cause unexpected result.

18.0.108 (1/7/2013)

1. Fixed: Mouse wheel handling was not working properly in build 107.
2. Changed: Rollers in Theater View support basic HTML text formatting tokens, like several other areas of the program.
3. Fixed: When changing a disc number, the program would not refresh the album analyzer fields like 'Complete Album'.
4. Fixed: When an ASIO driver issued a hardware reset, the program could repeat the last track instead of advancing when using a gap for the between tracks mode.
5. NEW: Added playback commands to skip the the previous and next album or artist (Main Menu > Player > Skip To).
6. Changed: Added support to the launcher (MC18.exe) for commands: /Command PreviousAlbum; /Command NextAlbum; /Command PreviousArtist; /Command NextArtist.
7. Fixed: Some command line commands that used the form MC18.exe /Command Param1 Param2 would not honor Param2 properly.
8. Changed: The pink noise generated by Tools > Advanced Tools > Create Test Clips is at -20dB, a level commonly used for reference volume calibration.
9. NEW: Added 30/60 fps option in Video > Display Settings, to separate 30/60 fps video from NTSC videos.

18.0.107 (1/4/2013)

4. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
5. Fixed: FLAC audio had blank or wrong "Compression" field.
6. Fixed: Returning to Theater View when zoomed to a file could cause there to be no secondary roller.
7. NEW: Allow the title for a DLNA item to be modified by an expression.


18.0.106 (1/3/2012)

1. Changed: Red October does not use the decoding built into madVR (was causing problems with DVD playback).
2. Changed: To use video decoding built into madVR, you can use Custom video mode and add a rule to use a 'Video renderer (with integrated decoding)'.
3. Fixed: Playback of CUE files over Library Server client when conversion was enabled did not work nicely.
4. Changed: The 'Bitdepth simulator' in parametric equalizer exposes optional dithering.
5. NEW: Added the output bitdepth '24-bit (with dithering)' to DSP Studio > Output Format.
6. NEW: Dithering of bitdepth conversion is optional with ASIO in Options > Audio Output mode settings. (dithering has no effect / is bit-perfect until you make signal changes like volume or other DSP).
7. Changed: Ratings field is now imported from (and written to) XMP tag in JPEG files.

18.0.105 (1/2/2012)

1. Changed: Tuned the DSD-to-PCM low-pass to more aggressively remove high frequency DSD noise since remaining noise can cause plainly audible distortion with some DACs.
2. Fixed: Conversion from 24-bit ALAC audio created 16-bit files.
3. Fixed: Doing a hold-down of the previous / next buttons could cause problems if the mouse moved away from the button before mouse up.
4. Changed: While a button is held down with the left button, the mouse is captured to only that button (previously the button would release if the mouse left).
5. Fixed: The 'Open File' dialog was not working properly with filenames that contained semi-colons.
6. Fixed: Car Radio would act like a button had been held down, even if it had only been clicked.
7. Changed: Made the 'Car Radio' feature optional in Options > General > Features.
8. Changed: When going into a Theater View library item that only contains a single file, the file will be 'zoomed' automatically.


18.0.104 (12/31/2012)

1. Fixed: WAV files created by other programs (like WMP and others) containing tags in the RIFF header could be imported with garbled tag values.
2. Fixed: Holding down the previous and next player buttons was not doing a fast forward / rewind.
3. Changed: Updated Chinese Language file (thanks kelijun).
4. Fixed: YouTube downloads were not working for some videos.
5. Changed: When changing the volume quickly with Loudness enabled, the sound is smoother (previously there could be a subtle ticking sound).
6. Fixed: When rip/encode simultaneous was enabled in advanced rip options, MC would not always allow multiple audio CD's to be ripped concurrently.
7. Fixed: Secure rip log files were not being written with the correct Windows style end of line characters (rn).
8. Fixed: wmv encoding. Broken by changes in 18.0.95
9. Fixed: The 'Add New Field' button would unnecessarily disable on the field management dialog when no field was selected.
10. Fixed: When using large fonts, the text in the player area could be the wrong size when using a skin that doesn't support playerbar resizing.
11. Fixed: The IE web browser engine could crash when starting.
12. Changed: When using MCC_PLAY_TV (30002), an error message is shown when the channel specified is not found (previously it would fail silently).
13. Changed: Renamed the new WASAPI - Event Style option from "Maximize hardware volume during playback" to "Maximize device volume during playback" to better match Windows naming.
14. Changed: Removed the 'Mute on start' WASAPI - Event Style option (it was added to see if it helped with DSD/PCM transitions, and it did not).
15. Changed: The WASAPI - Event Style option "Maximize device volume during playback" also clears / restores the mute state if the device is muted.
16. Fixed: Deleting a zone could leave stale 'Send To' menu items in the MRU list.
17. Fixed: When switching to Theater View with a toolbar button, the tooltip could remain visible.
18. Fixed: The math parser did not nicely handle when a function was used with less parameters than it required (applies to Math(...) in expression engine, etc.)


18.0.103 (12/21/2012)

1. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).

18.0.102

Internal build not released to the public.

18.0.101 (12/21/2012)

1. Changed: M3U and ASX playlist export could use JRiver-specific XML filenames in some cases.
2. NEW: Added the WASAPI - Event Style option 'Maximize hardware volume during playback'.
3. Fixed: Thumbnail creation for videos was not working in builds 98-100.
4. Fixed: Taskbar button images were not appearing with builds 98-100.
5. Fixed: Additional bug associated with translated television tuner type text string.
6. Changed: Updated Russian translation file (thanks, Vladimir).
7. Change: Updated Chinese Language file. (Thanks, kelijun).
8. Changed: Updated all translation files to include the latest strings from the source code.
9. Fixed: Ripping multiple audio discs could create a duplicate rip progress action window.
10. Fixed: In certain cases the user would have to click on "Insert a disc and click here" in the rip action window even though an audio disc was already present in the drive.


18.0.100 (12/20/2012)

1. Fixed: Subtitles and the OSD were not working with madVR (only applies to builds 98 and 99).

18.0.99 (12/20/2012)

1. Fixed: Television channels would not work after changing language used, if television tuner type string had been translated.
2. NEW: Added type "Disabled" on tuner type selection when configuring a television tuner.
3. Fixed: Transparent overlay windows were not drawing properly in build 98.
4. Changed: Revised the new allocation system used for images so that it's as fast on Win8 as it is on Win7.
5. Changed: When exporting a playlist on a Library Server client to M3U or ASX, the server filename will be used if it's reachable by the client (instead of using a URL to the server).
6. Fixed: The program could start at its default window position (maximized on the primary monitor) instead of the last shutdown position.

18.0.98 (12/19/2012)

1. Faster: Lower resource usage and faster performance due to core image framework improvements. More here: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=76576.0
2. Changed: Updated the Indonesian translation (thanks elda).
3. Fixed: The program did not nicely handle a streaming HTTP URL that redirected to an MMS stream (used by SiriusXMStreamer, etc.).
4. Fixed: In certain cases, 'Volume Leveling' with Replay Gain might not be enabled even if it looked enabled in DSP Studio (please double-check your DSP Studio setting with the new build).

18.0.97 (12/18/2012)

1. Changed: Renamed the DoP marker format 'dCS, Meitner, etc. (0xAA)' to 'Legacy format (0xAA)' since it's only required with older devices.
2. Fixed: Build 95 and 96 were not working on machines without SSE 4.1.
3. Fixed: Following a movie rip, the recently ripped playlist would be continually re-displayed until the action window was closed.
4. Fixed: Disk Writer output could hang in some cases.
5. Changed: Disk Writer names files using the time the output started instead of using artist / name fields (which don't really make sense for video).
6. Fixed: Live source like loopback and line-in did not work nicely with disk writer.
7. Changed: When doing live playback, WASAPI and ASIO were using 10ms as the maximum hardware buffer size. This could lead to audio hiccups, so now the user setting is always honored. If you do loopback playback, you might try a small buffer size to reduce latency.
8. Changed: Improved buffer allocation scheme used by WASAPI - Event Style, so that lower latency settings will work better.
9. Changed: Updated to madVR v0.85.4.MC (custom update for Media Center) when using Red October HQ.
10. Changed: Czech language translation updated (thanks to Johnny B).
11. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).

6. Changed: Updated to madVR v0.85.4 when using Red October HQ.
7. Fixed: Blu-ray and DVD discs could not be ripped when selected from the "New Media Action" dialog.

18.0.95 (12/14/2012)

1. Changed: Updated Chinese language file. Thanks kelijun.
2. NEW: You can in-place edit under the mouse cursor by doing a right-click while holding the left mouse button down (or by pressing the keyboard menu key while holding the left mouse button down).
3. Faster: The core string hash function (used to build library views, run searches, etc.) uses SSE 4.1 when possible and is around 3x faster.
4. Faster: Core library data engine is faster when dealing with fields where only some files have a value for the field (makes searches, view switches, etc. faster).
5. Fixed: Launcher commands like MC18.exe /Mode Theater were not working properly if Media Center as not running.
6. Changed: Updated libav for video encoding.
7. Fixed: bug that could cause trouble with some video transcodings.

3. Changed: Tuned the aspect ratio handling for movies and TV shows.
4. Changed: Made thumbnail aspect ratio standardization optional (Options > Tree & View > Thumbnails > Standardize aspect ratios).
5. Changed: MC will show an information message box when it can not play a television channel due to lack of available tuner.
6. Changed: Updated to madVR v0.85.3 when using Red October HQ.
7. Fixed: Remove Tags did not work for AIFF files.
8. Changed: Merged the blank thumbnail images for video and television. Added [MC]DataDefault ArtNoThumbVideo2x3.png that's used for movies and TV series.

18.0.93 (12/11/2012)

1. Fixed: Maximizing and restoring the main window could cause it to get confused about its own visibility, leading to problems with in-place editing (and possibly other things).
2. Fixed: If something were to hide the main window while the Tag Action Windows is editing, it could lead to a crash.
3. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
4. Fixed: Searching in Options and then clicking 'OK' after making a change could lead to a crash.
5. Changed: ZoneSwitch was only engaging for files in the main library (so not when dragging and dropping from Explorer, etc.)
6. Changed: ZoneSwitch rules that don't specify zones to stop will always be evaluated, regardless of the current zone (rules that specify play and stop zones only engage when the current zone is in the play + stop zone set).
7. Changed: Updated LAV filters to .54.1
8. Changed: Updated madVR to v0.85.2 when using Red October HQ.
9. NEW: Added 'Reverse polarity' filter to Parametric Filter.
10. Fixed: Line breaking rules for text layout could put a trailing parenthesis on its own line (which didn't look right).
11. Fixed: Aspect ratio enforcement for movies and TV series thumbnails was not working nicely with the small icons (Alexicons) in a list.
12. Changed: When using madVR (i.e. Red October HQ), madVR's custom interface is used for video color control.
13. Fixed: Right-clicking on Action Window > Tag > Playlists would show two menus.
14. Fixed: Cleaned up the right-click menu for Action Window > Tag > Playlists so that it only shows items that make sense there (instead of showing all the items the regular tree shows).
15. Changed: When hardware acceleration option is on, television playback prefers DXVA over QuickSync.
16. Fixed: A few problems when ripping multiple movie discs - canceling didn't work, movie name didn't update in the action window, disc wouldn't eject after ripping.

18.0.92 (12/10/2012)

1. Fixed: Loudness was not working properly for video playback with some output formats.
2. Fixed: The automation SDK was not supporting name-based function lookups properly in IDispatch::GetIDsOfNames.
3. Fixed: OGG channel mapping for 5, 6, and 8 channel files was not correct.
4. Changed: More improvements to Arabic text rendering.
5. Changed: Updated all translation files to include the latest strings from the source code.
6. Fixed: Track Info visualizations would not always switch their image when switching tracks (may have only applied when using the Chromium engine).
7. Changed: When deleting files not included in a sync, the program will only delete files that are at the location it would have placed the file (the previous safety check tried to look at the base path, but didn't work well with complex base path rules that included expression functions).
8. Changed: TV Recordings list in Television Standard view no longer includes TV shows that are not recordings done inside MC.
9. Fixed: There could be a drawing artifact above the quick find toolbar.
10. Changed: TV series images use the same 2:3 aspect ratio enforcement scheme that movies use.

1. NEW: Improved support for Arabic joining and bidi text layout in the font engine.
2. Fixed: Several issues with the COM automation system (only applies to builds after 78).
3. Faster: Drawing in the image editor uses bilinear stretching instead of supersampling to improve performance.
4. Faster: Improved the image editor rendering pipeline when building previews of tool effects.
5. Faster: The image editor 'Crop' tool preview drawing uses a custom SSE routine to darken portions of the image (must faster than a more general purpose method it was using previously).
6. Changed: TV guide entries more than 5 days in advance show the month abbreviated instead of the full name.
7. Changed: Made the Theater View keyboard narrower so that on a 1080p display using default sizing, there's about the same number of rows and columns on the keyboard (makes typing with arrows faster).
8. Changed: Moved the 'Clear' function for Theater View keyboard typing to a key after 'Backspace' instead of putting 'Clear Search' (or similar) on the top roller.
9. NEW: Theater View search supports texting-style typing using the number pad on a remote (1 is backspace, 0 is space, other numbers are letters).
10. NEW: 'Loudness' that applies (roughly) the ISO 226:2003 loudness correction curve as you turn down the volume to provide a more natural volume (requires using Internal Volume, reference level of Internal Volume defines the baseline, no correction is applied at volumes above baseline).

18.0.90 (12/5/2012)

1. NEW: Multiple movie discs (Blu-ray, DVD) can be ripped at once.
2. Fixed: Customizing some burn settings like the between tracks mode would not work properly.
3. Changed: Parametric Equalizer only exposes channels above the standard 8 if DSP Studio > Output Format > Channels is configured to use more (also allows accessing up to 32 channels with Parametric Equalizer when using that many channels).
4. Fixed: When making a change in a Parametric Equalizer filter and then immediately switching to a different filter or DSP, the changes could be lost.
5. Changed: With the low and high shelf filters in Parametric Equalizer, the bandwidth setting alters the slope (previously it was ignored).

18.0.89 (12/5/2012)

1. Fixed: A few command line issues.

1. Fixed: Possible crash when switching tracks.
2. Fixed: Remove Tags did not work for mp4 files.
3. Changed: Updated Chinese Language file. Thanks kelijun.
4. Fixed: On Windows 8, a fixed drive could (still) appear as a WMDM handheld device in some cases.
5. Fixed: When using the Chromium web browser engine, clicking a link that received special handling like a download from YouTube could result in an error page being shown.
6. Fixed: The mouse wheel was not working in Theater View with the last few builds.
7. Changed: The Podcast episode tag customization system uses the regular expression engine and expression editing control instead of using a special Podcast-only language.
8. Fixed: Maximizing options could cause clicking in the list to stop working.
9. Changed: Merged the audio CD burning effects options into the main CD burning options page (previously it was a separate popup).

18.0.77 (11/16/2012)

1. Fixed: Podcast webpage views were not working nicely with glass-based skins.
2. Fixed: The tooltip on the volume slider would not update while mouse-wheeling to show the new volume.
3. Fixed: If a panes view used the default sorting, right-click and double-click on a pane value could use files in a random order (instead of respecting the default sorting).
4. Fixed: ALAC mp4 files created in MC did not work in iPods because iPods do not support the newer MPEG-4 standard.
5. Fixed: Typed navigation in the panes could behave incorrectly if a pane item got selected that was particularly slow to evaluate.
6. Fixed: Using Party Mode with no password was not working properly.

18.0.76 (11/16/2012)

Experimental testing build not released to the public.

18.0.75 (11/15/2012)

1. Changed: Updated the user interface of the task creation / editing of the scheduler.
2. Changed: Updated Pix01 options and login user interface (and fixed a couple bugs).
3. Changed: Updated the 'Manage External Tools' dialog in the Send To (external) menu (now allows ordering).
4. Changed: Removed MFC from Theater View window (should be internal change, but please report any issues).
5. Changed: Tuned the animation used in Theater View to look and work better with a touch screen (in particular, drag and flick scrolling looks more natural and the selection bubble won't separate from the list).
6. Fixed: Main menu shortcuts like alt+f, etc. were not working properly.
7. Changed: In live TV for clients, if a client requests a channel change (of the same channel type), and the tuner on the server is serving that client alone, the channel change will be directly honored without having to load a new tuner.
8. Fixed: Switching between the Podcast root and Podcast home views could lead to problems.
9. Changed: Updated Facebook upload user interface (and fixed a few issues).

8. Changed: Updated Smartlist import / export dialog, import summary dialog, the clear library confirmation dialog, and add virtual handheld dialog to use latest JRiver user interface libraries.
9. Changed: When exporting a smartlist to a file, UTF-8 encoding is used (import should support any format).
11. Changed: Updated the player area text customization dialog (now uses standard expression editors, and exposes all the available special variables in the menu).

17.0.173 (6/14/2012)

1. Changed: Mono handling using 'No upmixing or downmixing' uses pseudo-stereo for music and the center speaker for videos (other than music videos).
2. Changed: Changed how JRiver URL Reader filter handle buffering by taking advantage of buffering info available in LAV splitter filter. Should help YouTube
3. Fixed: Handheld sync with MTP devices was not working correctly because of a bug in creating the MC database on the device.
4. Changed: Camera acquisition from some device types (e.g. MTP) was dealing with images & videos anywhere on the device. Now it takes a user settable image source path defaulting to DCIM.

17.0.172 (6/12/2012)

1. Changed: More internal threading changes in television playback engine.
2. Changed: Build 171 would unintentionally show frames on images in Theater View.

5. Changed: Playing Now Overview uses columns instead of stacked rows to show each zone.
6. Fixed: Playing Now Overview would not update nicely when zones were added or removed while it was showing.
7. Changed: Handheld conversion setting 'Simultaneous conversions' now applies to simultaneous downloads as well.
8. Fixed: Handheld sync from a library server was not obeying the "Enable DSP" flag so that volume leveling was always being performed.
9. Changed: While connected to a library server, "Enable DSP" is replaced with "Apply volume leveling" option in handheld conversion options.
10. Changed: When JRSS does center focused mixing (used for videos other than music videos), mono videos will output on the center speaker instead of as pseudo stereo.

17.0.171 (6/11/2012)

1. Fixed: Hulu playback was not working properly.
2. Fixed: Library-type search views were not working properly in Theater View (like the default Video > Guide > Search).
3. Changed: Clicking 'Save' in the image editor will apply and close any pending tool.
4. NEW: All thumbnail borders are drawn with skin items (that can be customized per skin).
5. Changed: Added 'Skip' cell drawing mode to skinning engine so a cell with no data (like the inside of a thumbnail frame) has no overhead (see Default Skin Items > main.xml > Border section for exmaples).
6. Changed: If thumbnail frames for images are disabled in Options, a drop shadow effect will be used in its place instead of the default thumbnail treatment.

17.0.170 (6/8/2012)

1. Changed: When using the mixing mode 'Clone side channels to rear speakers', if there's a rear center it will be used for the clone (at half-power to each rear) instead of the surrounds.
2. Fixed: Parts of the program that used a wait message could take longer to finish than expected.
3. Changed: Thumbnail borders are rendered at draw time instead of loaded into the thumbnail at load time (allows for more consistent sizing and more flexible styles).
4. Changed: Tuned the thumbnail bordering to use a smaller, more subtle shadowing.
5. Fixed: 6.1 to 7.1 upmixing was not working properly for the rear speakers in some cases.
6. Changed: Added more logging of handheld calls to debug a rare crash that can occur when loading a handheld.
7. Fixed: Using a fadeout on stop would not work properly when Volume Protection was enabled.
8. Changed: Fadeout on stop applies the volume using the internal audio engine instead of the volume slider, so it works nicely with any output device.

4. Fixed: Several tweaks and improvements to the support of large sector SACD ISO files.
5. Fixed: You can't name a top-level view "Advanced" or it vanishes.
6. Changed: DLNA: removed playlist containers completely. Was causing problems with some Onkyo models. Introduced in 17.0.134.
7. Fixed: JRSS 5.1 to 7.1 upmixing could cause the stereo separation in the SL / SR channels to be distorted.
8. Fixed: JRSS upmixing of 6.1 to 7.1 clones the rear center to the rears instead of building a rear by looking also at the surrounds.
9. Fixed: CD audio playback would stop at the end of a track, rather than moving forward to the next track (since build 163).

17.0.168 (6/6/2012)

1. Changed: The "Waiting..." OSD message at the start of television playback is replaced with channel/program info.
2. Fixed: Playing a DVD movie over DLNA could result in the non-default audio language being used. For example "Green Lantern" played in Spanish.

17.0.167 (6/5/2012)

1. Changed: We now always use "api.netflix.com" rather than switching to "api.netflix.ca" for computers with Canada as the locale country. The .ca api isn't supported by Netflix and using .com may make it work for VPN users.
2. Fixed: MC did not handle television signal problem or device problem gracefully during start of scheduled recordings.
3. Changed: Internal threading change in TV recording.
4. Fixed: DVD Videos burned with Media Center would not play on some models of DVD players (like Samsung Blu-ray).


17.0.147 (5/7/2012)

1. Fixed: Visualization Studio columns were not sizing nicely.
2. Changed: When playback of a video fails because DSP Studio > Output Format needs configuration, a message will be shown offering to make the change and continue playback instead of automatically making the change (audio already works this way).
3. Fixed: Putting a backslash in a user field name could cause trouble.
4. Fixed: It was possible to create two fields with the same file-system name by using characters the file system didn't support in the filename, leading to contamination between the two fields.
5. Fixed: When creating a ZIP file, the UTF-8 flag was not being properly set (despite filenames being UTF-8 encoded), causing problems in some cases.
6. Changed: Added mdx to the list of Disk Image / ISO types.
7. Fixed: Panes that had nesting could cause a crash when using dropdown panes mode.
8. Fixed: Video playback could use a small rectangle at the top left of the screen in certain cases with build 146.
9. NEW: Added support for ID3v2 URL frames. Must manually add a field in Options > Library & Folders > Manager Library Fields... and select 'Store in tags' to use fields using the naming: WCOM: Commercial URL; WCOP: Copyright URL; WOAF: File URL; WOAR: Artist URL; WOAS: Source URL; WORS: Radio Station URL; WPAY: Payment URL; WPUB: Publisher URL

13. Fixed: Mini skins that used scripting could crash in build 146.

17.0.146 (5/4/2012)

1. Fixed: Playback display painting could show a black screen with build 145.
2. Fixed: Expressions that had multiple levels of inlining could show % in the output with build 145.

4. Fixed: EVR clean up problem in television playback.
5. Changed: A little cleanup in input plugins (makes build a little smaller).

17.0.145 (5/3/2012)

1. Fixed: Interface leak in television.
2. Fixed: Expression inlining could cause problems if the inlined expression used parenthesis or commas outside of a function context.
3. Changed: Expression engine allows putting a subexpression in /% %/ to force it to be tokenized independently (used internally for inlined expressions).
4. Changed: Several internal class names, pin names, etc. changed from "J. River xyz" to "JRiver xyz" (only relevant if you're scripting or searching for specific window classes).
5. Fixed: The import summary would show files skipped because they were previously removed from the library twice.
6. NEW: Doing a lookup at TMDb will populate the new field "IMDB ID" when available.
7. Changed: Play stats can be copied using Paste Tags.
8. Fixed: Importing dates from flac files in weird "yyyy mm" format now works.
9. Changed: Removed remaining references to MFC in the playback engine, making JRPlayer about 6% smaller (should be internal change, but please report any issues).
10. Fixed: Invalid expressions that reported an error could cause a small memory leak.
11. Changed: The Auto-Import fix broken links option 'Yes (protect network files)' is now 'Yes (protect files on missing drives)' and works better with temporary fixed drives.
12. Changed: When Auto-Import is dealing with broken links, the 'protect files on missing drives' mode checks for the existence of the drive instead of existence of the owning folder.
13. Changed: The 'Clean File Properties' and 'Find & Replace' library tools use the same field picker as 'Paste Tags', which removes fields that are empty or irrelevant for the selected files.
14. Changed: Find & Replace remembers the find, replace, and case sensitive options between uses (selected fields have always been remembered).
15. Changed: The field 'TheTVDB Series ID' was not available for use in video views.
16. Changed: DLNA servers. When enabling the "MPEG video mimetype override", clearing out the "video DLNA override" entry will prevent it from being reported causing the renderer to rely upon the mimetype reported by "video mimetype override"

17.0.144 (5/2/2012)

1. Fixed: With Library Server sync, sending a delete from a client with no other changes, then closing the client and restarting it, could cause the deleted file to reappear.

17.0.143 (5/1/2012)

1. Changed: Made the FileDBLocation(...) expression function able to output a number or list of readable strings (defaults to strings).
2. Fixed: If an expression field referenced itself, the circular reference could cause a crash.
3. Changed: When import skips files because the filenames are too long or because files have the system attribute set, the import summary will show this (and 'Show in-depth summary' will list the files).
4. Changed: The in-depth summary for an import lists files skipped because they're marked as bad or that have been previously deleted (only a count was shown before).
5. Fixed: MC did not make use hardware encoding capability of the analog tuner on Hauppauge HVR-1800.
6. Fixed: Starting loopback playback (live://loopback) would crash on XP instead of fail gracefully (loopback requires Vista or newer and WASAPI).
7. NEW: Added support for playback of "Shorten" format audio files (SHN).
8. NEW: Commercial skipping sidecars (EDL files) work over Library Server.
9. Fixed: Using the search box / search suggestions to execute a slow program command like 'Create Test Clips...' could lead to a crash.
10. NEW: Added 'Parametric Equalizer' 36 dB/octave and 48 dB/octave slopes to the high-pass filter.
11. Faster: Allow caching to work when building DLNA container child container descriptions. Massive speed increase (when browsing the DLNA tree).
12. Fixed: It was possible to set a category as 'Grouped', then switch it to an expression (which doesn't support grouping), and then have a broken pane or view.
13. NEW: DSP Studio is sizable / maximizable (only some pages respond to sizing, others remain top-left aligned).

17.0.142 (5/1/2012)

1. Fixed: Manually deleting files with Library Server sync did not work properly with build 141.
2. Fixed: When both a client and server imported the same file, Library Server sync could cause two copies to appear (only applies to last couple builds).

17.0.141 (4/30/2012)

1. Fixed: Library Server sync could cause problems with stacks and particles (only applies to 17.0.131 and newer).
2. Changed: Library Server sync uses file keys for all merging instead of filenames (makes stacks and particles work nicely).
3. Changed: Added FileDBLocation() expression function to view the internal database locations of a file (mostly for internal / debugging use).
4. Fixed: Consecutive and overlapping television recordings on the same channel (thus on the same device) did not work correctly. The second recording was stopped and restarted when the first recording ended.
5. Changed: LAV video is set to "aggressively" de-interlace mpeg-2 video in Red October mode. This should fix broken TV streams that have some interlaced frames marked as progressive.

17.0.140 (4/27/2012)

1. NEW: Added Tag Pasting feature (Ctrl+Shift+V).
2. Fixed: Audio seeking with Ctrl+Left/Right was using too large of a jump size.
3. Fixed: If a JPEG failed a lossless rotation, it could cause a crash.

17.0.139 (4/27/2012)

1. Fixed: MCWS was not properly handling hexified URL parameter names (only hexified URL parameter values).
2. Changed: Czech language translation updated (thanks, Johnny B).
3. Fixed: The 'Format' tag in the Action Window could show an error.
4. Fixed: Library Server sync could cause problems in certain cases (only applies to the last few builds).
5. Faster: Improved the performance of Library Server sync.
6. Changed: The 'Supported Formats' list for a handheld didn't clean the list until after a restart, so entering extra spaces, etc. could still cause troubles.
7. Changed: Tuned the safety valve on allowing ASIO hardware resets to stop playback if more than 5 resets occur in 5 seconds.
8. Changed: When audio playback buffers, like after a seek, the user interface won't switch to "Buffering xx%" unless buffering lasts at least 250ms.
9. Faster: Seeking audio playback with keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right updates the user interface immediately (previously there was a little delay before changes showed).


17.0.122 (4/5/2012)

1. Fixed: 'Move center to front L/R' was not working in build 120 and 121.
2. Changed: Analog television tuners/video capture devices that use MPEG hardware compression will use Red October or custom filters settings in time-shifting mode.
3. NEW: Option to start analog channels in time-shifting mode. The default is off.
4. Changed: Pressing Stop button while time-shifting analog TV channel stops playing the channel, instead of just canceling time-shifting. The behavior is now the same for analog and digital channels.
5. Changed: Updates to webgizmo video playing, thanks scolex...

17.0.121 (4/4/2012)

1. Fixed: JRSS mixing was not working properly in some cases with build 120.

17.0.120 (4/3/2012)

1. NEW: Added the ability to DSP Studio > Output Format to output some variants like "2 channels (inside 4 channel container)", "5.1 channels (inside 7.1 channel container)", etc.
2. Changed: Revised the JRSS upmixing engine to support more flexible channel arrangements and to offer better performance in some cases (should be an internal change, but please report any issues).
3. Changed: Tuned the way television shows the channel and program when changing channels to make it easier to read.
4. Changed: The channel up / channel down buttons on the remote would not allow quick channel scanning.
5. Changed: When scanning channels quickly, the OSD updates immediately while the tune happens in the background (previously the OSD could lag behind).
6. Changed: The television control behaves better when a lot of tune requests are issued quickly.
7. Faster: Improved the performance of displaying OSD information for television (which also makes changing channels faster).
8. Fixed: Television recording skipped a final importing procedure (resulting in recordings being reported as missing in standard TV view) in the last couple of builds.
9. Changed: Find & Replace no longer allows making filename changes (which move files). Use the find & replace feature in Rename, Move, & Copy Files instead.
10. Changed: WebPlay and WebRemote have been deprecated in favor of WebGizmo (WebPlay and WebRemote will remain for v17, but they are not shown in Options or on the root Library Server page).

17.0.119 (4/2/2012)

1. Changed: The TVInfo(...) expression function supports 'ChannelKeywords' to get the keywords of the channel for a guide program or recording.
2. Fixed: Some older Real Video clips would not play (RV10/RV20 format).
3. Changed: Volume Protection resets the level to 20% instead of 10% if there has been no playback for a long time (better matches Internal Volume changes from 17.0.83).
4. Fixed: DLNA Sinkprotocolinfo string had improper syntax.
5. Fixed: Using Play Doctor with linked zones could cause a crash.
6. Changed: When using Volume Leveling in 'Automatic based on current playlist' mode, a consistent +6.0 dB will be used when playing with Play Doctor (otherwise as Play Doctor changes the playlist it can cause the volume to fluctuate between tracks).
7. Fixed: Disconnecting some DLNA devices during playback could cause Media Center to freeze.
8. Fixed: Temporary DLNA audio conversion files weren't getting deleted until Media Center closed.
9. Fixed: Forced whitespace, indicated by slash space, in expressions was not working properly.
10. NEW: Playback of unprotected RTMP streams works with File > Open URL...
11. Changed: Clicking 'Resume Playback' on Gizmo when the server's Playing Now was empty would cause the server to show a 'There is nothing to play' error.
12. NEW: "Do not record reruns" option for television subscription recording.
13. Changed: Added the Media Sub Type 'Trailer' for movie trailers.
14. Changed: On the end of a Blu-ray, the menu dialog is no longer shown automatically (use Particles, the Menu button on the remote, the OSD, or the right-click menu to play sub-titles).

17.0.118 (3/30/2012)

1. Changed: Tag on import rules allow drag-n-drop or right-click reordering.
2. Fixed: When picking a search suggestion that didn't change the search text, it would not properly apply the rule to the view.
3. Fixed: Column width / order changes were not being saved.
4. Fixed: Ctrl+Arrow navigation did not work properly in multi-line edit controls that use plain text instead of HTML.
5. Changed: Dates of the form "yyyy mm dd" would not parse (used in some M4A files, maybe others).
6. NEW: Consecutive and overlapping TV recordings on the same channel are recorded with the same tuner.
7. Changed: The folder browse dialog uses system controls only and no skinning to avoid problems like scrollbars not working, etc.
8. NEW: For WebGizmo if a browser supports HTML 5, WebGizmo will try to play music, images and video with an HTML 5 javascript player. If it can't play that specific content using HTML5 it will revert to a flash player. This allows playlists on ios 5 to work in Safari for audio and images. Video is likely to need more changes...

17.0.117 (3/29/2012)

1. Fixed: Video playback on Gizmo / WebGizmo could (still) not work in some cases.

17.0.116 (3/29/2012)

1. Fixed: If cancelling of an internet read was slow, it could cause a thread to be ungracefully terminated leading to crashes in the system library wininet.dll.
2. Changed: Revised how Theater View backdrop loading is handled so that the user interface thread is never waiting on a load to finish.
3. Fixed: In certain cases the last frame in an ID3v2 tag would not get removed properly, so a frame could appear twice in the tag.
4. Fixed: Viewing a single file search result in Theater View was not working properly.
5. Faster: Core value searching engine (Theater View, Gizmo, search suggestions, etc.) is about 15% faster.
6. Changed: In Netflix, right and left keyboard arrows or remote buttons now activate Silverlight fastforward/rewind controls correctly. Ok/Pause/Play button control improvement also.
7. Changed: WMA tagging using WM/PartOfSet for disc numbers.
8. Changed: Updated Italian translation (thanks to Gianni).
9. Fixed: Video playback with Gizmo / WebGizmo was not working in build 115 due to an HTML escapement issue.
10. Changed: Updated to LAV filters .50.1. Fixed crashes due to invalid subtitle data and certain dynamic format changes. Improved Blu-ray stream detection.
11. Fixed: Possible leak when scrolling a list that was showing full resolution thumbnails.

17.0.115 (3/27/2012)

1. Fixed: Date formatting tokens %W and %U were counting from the first week in the month instead of the first week in the year.
2. Fixed: When tagging ID3v2 tags (MP3, WAV, DSF) with images other than just a front cover, the results could be unpredictable (Media Center will replace front and other images with the image in Media Center, and leave other types).
3. Fixed: Japanese locale (and maybe others) could have problems loading Podcasts.
4. NEW: Audio Path reports the source format (especially useful for seeing if DTS-MA, etc. is being decoded fully).
5. Changed: When toggling zones, Playing Now views are only switched to the new zone if they're in the current tab, split view, and not locked (so having multiple splits each showing a different Playing Now works nicely).
6. Fixed: With a Search List view category, the sorting could be disabled but stuck on 'Descending' causing the list to sort in reverse.
7. Changed: Resuming from standby, a Library Server client will sync with the server (must have 'Options > Media Network > Client Options > Auto sync with server' enabled).
8. Changed: A file will not be eligible to transfer to a handheld or burn to a CD/DVD until any queued tagging for that file has finished.
9. Fixed: Audio Path text was not readable with some skins.
10. Fixed: Right-clicking a non-selected pane item and picking an action could perform the action on the previous selection.
11. Changed: Updated LAV filters to .50. Decoding speed increases, RealAudio Lossless support, lots of other improvements.
12. Fixed: Unusual behavior when corrupt podcast files were downloaded.
13. Changed: Improved visual smoothness when switching into Cover View (also removed black flicker when pressing stop from Cover View).
14. Changed: The Smartlist Editor doesn't show a drop list for 'Large Value' type fields like Description, etc.
15. Changed: If video playback is paused when entering Theater View, it is not automatically resumed if Theater View is exited to Standard View.

17.0.114 (3/26/2012)

1. Changed: When using list fields in Rename, Move, & Copy Files expressions, the full list can be retrieved by using 0 as the second field parameter (example: [Keywords, 0]).
2. Fixed: The server core was not supporting HTTP/1.1 pipelining correctly, causing scrambled artwork in WebGizmo on iOS 5, and possibly other problems.
3. Fixed: WebGizmo better handles escapement of invalid characters.
4. Changed: Tweaks to ensure WebGizmo pages pass W3C validation.
5. Fixed: Date formatting was not outputting a literal percentage properly when using %%.
6. Changed: Date formatting supports %W and %U.


17.0.99 (3/2/2012)

1. Changed: Improved the workaround for the blue-screen crashes in the Thesycon (and possibly other) audio drivers when resetting with Kernel Streaming.
2. Changed: Reworked how full packet Kernel Streaming delivery is handled to work better with video (full packets are required or some drivers stall playback).
3. Changed: If video hardware acceleration is enabled, and Media Center detects an Intel Atom processor, DXVA2 Native mode is preferred over CUVID mode for hardware acceleration.
4. Fixed: DLNA search didn't work properly with servers/renderers that used the same port for both.

17.0.98 (3/1/2012)

1. Fixed: The remote control plugin was not included in build 97, leading to problems.
2. Fixed: Filename truncation could still unnecessarily truncate long fields.

17.0.97 (2/29/2012)

1. Fixed: DVB-S channel scan could produce wrong polarization value ("Linear Horizontal" was set to "Not Defined").
2. Changed: Revised how filenames that are too long for the file system are truncated (previously truncation could be too aggressive).
3. Fixed: The program could crash when the remote control feature was disabled.
4. Fixed: DVB-T/S/C channel scanning could crash in some cases.
5. Fixed: Stopping image playback while audio playback was in progress could cause a crash in build 96.

17.0.96 (2/28/2012)

1. Changed: Updated to madVR v0.81 with Red October HQ.
2. Changed: Gathering playback state and position information for a zone occurs in a background thread so a slow DLNA device or server can not cause user interface issues.
3. Faster: The threaded approach to display information updating allows running updates one tenth as much while providing smoother visual position incrementing.
4. Fixed: URL-based video playback was not working since build 94.
5. Changed: Kernel Streaming output no longer writes partial packets if there's a shortfall or at the end of a track but instead delivers a full packet with some silence (some drivers blue screen on partial packets).
6. Fixed: DVB-S channel scanning did not save modulation type value correctly.
7. Fixed: Theater View > Playing Now > Info could show the wrong track when first entering.
8. Changed: Video conversion for Gizmo / WebGizmo uses MP3 instead of AAC (works better with Android 4.0, maybe others).
9. NEW: Video conversion tool using Red October available on right-click menu (Library Tools/Convert Format). The UI is mostly finished, the transcode profiles are not fully defined and may not give expected results. More to come.
10. Fixed: After deleting files from Playing Now, the selection could unexpectedly revert to the playing track.
11. Changed: Renamed Options > Media Network > Client Options > to 'Automatically sync changes made on client back to server' to 'Auto sync with server'.
12. Fixed: DVB-T/S/C channel scanning could crash in some cases.
13. Changed: Theater View sheet list style adapts the image aspect ratio like other lists (instead of always using squares).
14. Fixed: A few bugs in the DLNA renderer.
15. Changed: Added Media_Duration to GetMediaInfo for the DLNA renderer.

17.0.95 (2/24/2012)

1. Changed: Updated LAV filters to .48 which fixes a crash with native DXVA2 on hardware that doesn't support decoding all formats.
2. Changed: IIR based DSP effects like low-pass, high-pass, Linkwitz, etc. better handle denormals (numbers very close to zero) so performance slowdowns don't arise from these numbers.
3. Changed: Tuned timing used when switching madVR between Display View and Theater View to (hopefully) fix black-screen hangs.
4. Changed: Updated the RSS feed for Theater View Yahoo! News to point to a new RSS feed that works (Yahoo! still offers the old feed, but it's full of broken links).
5. Fixed: Sometimes when deleting files, especially from Theater View, the remove empty folders prompt would not appear right away.
6. Fixed: Toggling the new DSP option 'Process independently of internal volume' could cause a burst of sound if the internal volume was low.
7. Fixed: Tempo & Pitch DSP did not flush fully, so on seek, etc. a little tail could be heard in some cases.
8. Changed: The text output in the Export Playlist tool creates standard CSV output (RFC 4180 compliant).
9. Fixed: Channel editing tool did not work for DVB-C/S and QAM tuner types.
10. Changed: Removed Output Format option for sources that have an incorrectly mastered subwoofer, use -10dB to the subwoofer in Parametric Equalizer instead if needed (discussed here: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=70303.0).
11. NEW: Add DLNA controller switch to ignore transport events (use polling mode) to the Player Zone.

17.0.94 (2/23/2012)

1. Fixed: WASAPI output mode could lose lip-sync when seeking in video.
2. Faster: Pruning of the Theater View background cache could cause exiting Theater View to be slow (pruning is now around 50x faster and only done once a week).
3. Fixed: LAV Source/Splitter filter would allow viewing configuration pages which is not valid for auto-configured Red October filters and in fact shows the config for a separately installed instance.
4. Changed: Theater View News works better when an article fails to load (like the current Yahoo! failures due to a Yahoo! server problem).
5. Fixed: Volume Protection could engage and turn the volume down on subsequent videos when playing videos back to back.
6. Faster: The HTML parser used by Theater View news is about 10x faster.
7. NEW: Each DSP effect can be set to be processed independently of internal volume (Options button at top right of DSP).
8. NEW: DSP effects can be set to process only when viewed, which is useful for visualization style items like Analyzer (Options button at top right of DSP).
9. Changed: Tuning to some wording in DSP Studio.
10. Changed: DSP Studio keeps 'Output Format' first and 'Volume Leveling' second. A message explaining this is shown if a user attempts to put other effects before these effects.
11. NEW: Added a second Parametric Equalizer to DSP Studio so it's possible to apply effects on either side of Room Correction, convolution, etc.
12. Changed: One-time reset of DSP effect ordering due to other changes.
13. Fixed: DLNA controller function was assuming it was in control whenever a zone was selected leading to badness if we were only viewing a zone someone else was controlling.
14. Changed: DLNA controller polls for playing state if it thinks it's playing but the position isn't updating from 0. This fixes trouble if an event is missed.
15. Turkey: Moved the search box to the lower-left of the Options dialog as discussed here: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=69921.0.

17.0.93 (2/21/2012)

1. Changed: Added support for reading the lens name from XMP.
2. Changed: Improved the HTML parsing engine used in Theater View > News to works better with BBC, possibly others.
3. Changed: Tweaked the list of reasons in the uninstall dialog.
4. NEW: Added The Verge to Theater View News.

17.0.92 (2/21/2012)

1. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
2. Changed: MCWS functions that return a decimal will always use . as the decimal character (unless the value is designed to be displayed to a user like VolumeDisplay, etc.).
3. Changed: Revised how image playback creates hardware accelerated devices to fix stalls before drawing the image on some machines.
4. Fixed: Switching between 3d and regular Theater View lists could cause the number of thumbnails in a row to change.
5. Changed: Minor tuning to thumbnail sizing in Theater View to make a 1080p display more likely to show 3 rows for movies.
6. Fixed: VideoClock was not engaging in some cases so there could be frame repeats / frame drops.
7. Changed: VideoClock will allow up to a 1% clock drift to achieve a perfect 2.5 video to refresh rate multiplier (used for 24 Hz video on 60 Hz display).
8. Changed: Real Media video files (.rm,.rmvb,.rv,.smil) are now played through Red October rather than using the Real Media engine (which wasn't working anyhow).
9. Fixed: DVB-S channel scanning could get channels with wrong frequencies or multiple entries of the same channel with different frequencies.
10. NEW: Added a subtitle mode (Options > Video) that shows a sidecar when it's found, regardless of other settings. (mode: Show subtitles only if selected subtitle language is different from audio language, or if subtitles are in a sidecar file)
11. NEW: Added default field 'Lens'. Filled automatically from the EXIF tag with Canon cameras.
12. Fixed: Downloading from Library Server for transfer to a handheld might time out if conversion was custom MP3 and audio file was very large (~2 hours).

17.0.91 (2/20/2012)

1. Fixed: Television channel scanning did not work for the last couple of builds.
2. Fixed: Ctrl+F would not select existing text in the search box.
3. Changed: Default sorting for television shows will use SeriesSeasonEpisodeName instead of just Name.
4. Changed: Empty sort rules in a view or parent view could cause problems when setting the sort to (Default).
5. Fixed: Installing a build manually clears any queued auto-updates.
6. Changed: Updated LAV filters to .47 with DXVA Native mode support and other goodies.
7. Fixed: Library server and DLNA audio conversions to mp3 were not working.
8. NEW: Added DLNA controller function which can change tracks gaplessly. Requires that the renderer supports SetNextAVTransportURI. Works nicely with MC's renderer. Needs testing with other renderers whether they have the function or not (look for breakage on renderers that don't support it).

17.0.90 (2/16/2012)

1. Fixed: The OSD window would only draw one line of text in some cases (hopefully fixed, please let us know).

17.0.89 (2/15/2012)

1. NEW: Added the HDTracks store including download and search (Services & Plug-ins in the tree).
2. Changed: Added extra logging for TV recording.
3. Changed: Revised escapement of non-printable characters in XML to work with more XML parsers.
4. Fixed: Relative paths that moved up multiple paths with ../.. were not handled properly in some cases.
5. Faster: Internal Volume uses SSE when it's available for around 20% - 30% faster volume processing.
6. Changed: Reduced wait time for DVB and QAM channel scanning.
7. Changed: Added a wait when switching user interface modes while madVR is in use to help with full screen exclusive causing Theater View creation problems.


17.0.82 (2/3/2012)

1. Fixed: Theater View could crash when deleting items.
2. Faster: Improved Theater View's UI update system (when playback advances, etc.) so that fewer updates happen and updates look smoother when they do happen.
3. Fixed: Searching in Theater View could crash with build 80 or 81.
4. Fixed: Hulu AdZone clips would not play properly.
5. Faster: Improved performance of DSD reading and decoding.
6. Fixed: Incorrect message displayed in 'Edit Cd Information' dialog.
7. Fixed: The uninstaller could error when finishing.
8. NEW: The search language supports putting a hat in front of a keyword to do word matching (so ^car matches "Car Blues" or "My Car Broke" but not "Carolina on My Mind").
9. Changed: Hat is an escaped character in the search language, so you must use /^ to search for a literal hat.

17.0.81 (2/2/2012)

1. Changed: Lots of tuning and fixes to the new Theater View list styles.
2. NEW: Theater View shows movie backdrops from TheMovieDB.
3. NEW: Animated lists show a caption (and bubbles for DVD / Bluray on the right).
4. Changed: The way network servers are broken down upon exit trying to fix hanging exit problems.
5. Changed: DLNA: BrowseMetaData was returning no parentID, now returns the root parentID. Could solve problems with some renderers when MC is the controller.
6. Fixed: DLNA, if a player zone was associated with a particular DLNA server and that server was deleted we didn't pick up the default (first DLNA server) to use with that zone. Now it defaults back to the first server and one can associate it with a new zone if desired.

17.0.80 (2/1/2012)

1. NEW: Added animated Theater View list styles 'Flow' and 'Sheet'. Animated 3d lists can now be used in any view of Theater View.
2. NEW: Added support for Computer Audiophile playback scrobbling, called 'CA Scrobbles' (configure in Options > Services).
3. NEW: DVB-C television support.
4. Fixed: TV Configuration did not offer DVB-S as one of tuner types.
5. Changed: Added more logging in order to diagnose DVB-S scanning failure.
6. Fixed: TV channel scanning did not show a proper message when scanning failed.
7. Fixed: Some PSD files with certain format embedded thumbnails could cause a crash.
8. Fixed: During DVB-S channel scanning the satellite transponder file failed to open.

17.0.79 (1/30/2012)

1. Fixed: When 'Show playback zones from the server on the client' was unchecked in options, DLNA zones from the server were still shown.
2. Changed: Red October uses the latest LAV filters (v0.45). Support for Intel Indeo 4, MS Video 1, 8BPS, LOCO, ZMBV, VCR1, AASC, plus other new goodies and bug fixes.
3. Changed: Removed options for disabling tray icons for ffdshow and Haali filters since Red October removes the need for these.

17.0.78 (1/27/2012)

1. Fixed: FLAC date tagging bug present in v77.
2. Fixed: Using the web service call to set current position during playback was not working properly if called in rapid succession.
3. Fixed: In certain cases the Green Button on the remote control did not work correctly.
4. Fixed: DLNA, the name of the bitrate field was wrong (it was bitRate).
5. Fixed: DLNA, the value of the bitrate field was incorrect if the file WASN'T being converted. This could prevent proper seeking in renderers that used that field (i.e. WhiteBear).
6. Changed: All http services, return error 416 when a request was out of range as opposed to an empty partial content response.
7. Fixed: In some user's libraries, sequence columns were not sorting correctly.

17.0.77 (1/26/2012)

1. Changed: Updated YouTube support for latest site changes.
2. Fixed: The purchase / trial extension dialog could crash.
3. Changed: Automatic movie & tv info lookup will overwrite the name for a television episode using the value in the online database (no other existing data is overwritten in automatic mode).
4. Fixed: Editing Artist, Genre, Composer, and Conductor in the Tag Action Window was not working properly.
5. Changed: OGG tagging better supports list fields.
6. Changed: Updated FLAC plugin -- removed MFC, updated settings dialog, improved support for list-fields, etc.
7. Changed: APE tagging supports NULL delimited lists for fields (applies to APE and MPC files).
8. Changed: 'Album Artist (auto)' only considers the primary (first in the list) artist for tracks.

17.0.76 (1/25/2012)

1. NEW: Artist, Genre, Composer, and Conductor are list-type fields.
2. Changed: List fields can be configured to use a standard edit or list edit style. Existing user created list-type fields will need to be updated in Options > Library & Folders > Manage library fields > Edit Type > List if you want a list-type editor for them.
3. Changed: ID3v2 tagging better supports list fields.
4. Changed: All TheMovieDB genres get populated to the genre field.
5. Changed: WMA/WMV tagging better supports list fields.
6. NEW: Putting a hat in front of a search token does an ordered list compare (so "^[Keywords]=cat" will match "cat; dog" but not "dog; cat").

17.0.75 (1/25/2012)

1. Fixed: TMDb lookup was not loading all information.
2. Changed: Updated DVB-S satellite transponder files.

17.0.74 (1/24/2012)

1. NEW: DVB-S television support. Please test.
2. Changed: Library server access key registration is now updated hourly instead of daily. This should reduce problems with having a dynamic external IP address.
3. Changed: DSP plugins are flushed when they're turned on so plugins with a history won't cause old audio to play when turning on.
4. Fixed: Media Editor was not opening high bitdepth files properly.
5. Faster: Improved how Convolution operates when a filter operates on multiple input channels (should give a 10-25% speedup in these cases).
6. Fixed: Playing images and videos at a remote location was not working properly with WebGizmo.

17.0.73 (1/23/2012)

1. Changed: Carnac better handles videos that are signed with two usernames.
2. Fixed: Unimported television shows would not be considered television shows by some tools.
3. Fixed: Resolution changes while Theater View were showing were not handled nicely.
4. Fixed: With JRSS disabled, bass redirection in Room Correction would not work in some cases.
5. Changed: Revised the generic tagging error to say "errors while tagging or moving files" instead of "errors while tagging and moving files".
6. Changed: VideoClock no longer considers 2.5x a target ratio between the monitor refresh rate and video frame rate worth deviating the clock to achieve.
7. Changed: When looking up movie & TV information automatically as part of auto-import, fields with existing data will never be overwritten (manually running the tool will overwrite existing data).
8. Changed: Adding an auto-import folder offers auto-complete of paths when typing.
9. Changed: TMDb lookup gets genre for movies.

17.0.72 (1/20/2012)

1. Changed: Tuning to how a video looks when starting if it takes a little while to load (removed fade-in animation from build 71, changed timing).
2. Changed: YouTube clips with a genre of 'Music' will have their media sub type set to 'Music Video' so that JRSS upmixing will use music mixing instead of center-focused movie mixing.
3. Faster: Optimization to make playing from an Internet source a little faster.
4. NEW: Added relational field 'TheTVDB Series ID' that will be used when running Get Movie & TV Info, when loading backdrops, etc. (if some series gets the wrong data, use 'Get Movie & TV Info' manually to get correct data one time and subsequent lookups of the same series will automatically use that series).
5. NEW: 'Get Movie & TV Info' can be run on any number of files (when processing more than one file, automatic lookup is used instead of showing the lookup dialog).
6. Fixed: The option 'Skip file if already in library' in Action Window > Camera was not working in some cases.
7. Changed: Added media sub type 'Test Clip'.
8. NEW: Added 'Create Audio Test Clips' under Tools > Advanced to create audio files that are useful for testing and calibration (pink noise, tones, silence, etc.).
9. Changed: DLNA, allow some time for M-Search and Notify to be propagated before repeating. Seems to help with DLNA device detection.
10. Fixed: LAV Video decoder was being used for Cinepak and MSRLE but the codecs were not being enabled in LAV, causing some files to fail to play.
11. NEW: It's now possible to rename DLNA renderer zones.

17.0.71 (1/19/2012)

1. Fixed: YouTube playback was not working.
2. Changed: Disabling of the screensaver / monitor power while playing a video is more reliable.
3. Fixed: Grouping of Duration or other decimal number fields in views could give unpredictable results.
4. Fixed: The search box was disabled on the Scheduler > Play task page.
5. NEW: Deleting the last item in a Theater View list will automatically go back a level instead of showing an empty list.
6. Fixed: After deleting all items in a Theater View category, and then going back, the category would remain until leaving and reentering the view.
7. Changed: Starting video playback won't show cover art or 'Opening...' if the video starts in a few seconds.
8. NEW: Allow a DLNA player zone to associate with a particular DLNA server (right-click on the zone->Associate with DLNA server). If not set, MC defaults to the old behavior (first in the server list).
9. Fixed: Remove DSP and Playback options from DLNA zones (not applicable).

17.0.70 (1/18/2012)

1. Fixed: Get Movie & TV Info wasn't properly sorting TheTVDB matches by relevance.
2. Fixed: TheTVDB lookup didn't handle multiple directors properly.
3. Changed: Sidecar subtitles with no language specifier are used automatically if the video has no other embedded / forced subtitles (unless subtitles are turned off in Options > Video).
4. Changed: Updated the default Podcasts (use 'Add Default Podcast Feeds' to get the latest list).
5. Faster: When browsing Explorer views, file are analyzed several at a time instead of one at a time (makes browsing unimported files must faster in Standard View and Theater View).
6. Faster: DVD analyze / import times are much faster.
7. Faster: Improved performance of Theater View 'Explorer' views.
8. Fixed: Disabling of the screen saver was not working in Theater View (optional in Options > Theater View).
9. Faster: Tuned SSE3 used for Convolution making the engine around 5% faster.


17.0.68 (1/16/2012)

1. Fixed: Showing Theater View could hang at a black screen in some cases.
2. NEW: Improved Hulu integration (login, queue, more titles per category, nicer playback, etc.).
3. Faster: Convolution uses SSE3 in the convolution kernel when supported (gives about an 8% speed-up to the convolution engine on supported processors).
4. Fixed: When using VideoClock when a large correction was needed (like PAL slowdown), the audio rate could fail to stabilize in some cases, especially when using madVR.
5. Changed: VideoClock will target a maximum deviation of 5% instead of 7.5% to achieve an even multiple between the video and display rates (so 28 Hz material on a 60 Hz display won't target 1:2, but 25 Hz material on a 24 Hz display will still target 1:1).
6. Fixed: The DVB-T channel scanning problem in build 65 is fixed.
7. NEW: The subtitle engine supports sidecar subtitles when playing from a Library Server.
8. Changed: In image preview mode, doing something that shows an Action Window (like Share to Web) will close the image preview so that the Action Window will be visible.
9. Fixed: The option "Video/Crop edges" wasn't working for non-DVD videos.
10. Changed: When DVD playback fails because MS decoder won't connect to splitter, we now fall back to other Mpeg2 decoders rather than failing playback.
11. Fixed: Playing multiple videos in a playlist could unnecessarily delay 5 seconds when starting subsequent videos.

17.0.67 (1/13/2012)

1. Fixed: The DVB-T channel scanning problem found in build 65 is truly fixed.
2. Fixed: When moving or deleting video files with an associated image file, if the image file was also imported into the database, the database entry didn't get moved or deleted correctly.

17.0.66 (1/12/2012)

1. Changed: Library servers without a key (never clicked on access key under Media Network Options) will now show up as a library server instead of a DLNA server under Playing now.
2. Fixed: Minor cleanup of a sent user agent string in Media Network.
3. Fixed: The DVB-T channel scanning problem found in build 65 is likely fixed.

17.0.65 (1/10/2012)

1. Fixed: Convolution was not working properly.
2. Changed: Convolution filter volume normalization is optional.
3. Changed: Better volume handling when convolution resamples a filter to a different sample rate.
4. Changed: Convolution normalization targets a change of -6 dB so that there's enough room to prevent clipping in most cases (it's also recommend that you leave 'Clip Protection' enabled in DSP Studio).
5. Changed: Red October uses the latest LAV filters (v0.44). Intel QuickSync hardware decoding supported, plus other new goodies and bug fixes.
6. Changed: Right-click menu on audio CD tracks no longer shows library tools that don't make sense. Added a button in header for getting track info from YADB.
7. NEW: XMLTV channel IDs can be automatically matched with MC DVB-T television channels.

17.0.64 (1/6/2012)

1. Changed: Renaming a file or folder in the MC Explorer tree now runs a verification to make sure it wouldn't create any invalid (too long) filenames underneath and fails the rename if it would.
2. Fixed: Using the "Rename, Move, & Copy..." tool for a video file with an associated image file was failing.
3. Changed: When resampling audio, the resampler delay at the beginning (a small fraction of a second) is removed instead of outputting the silence.
4. Changed: When importing videos (or doing quick find cover art), sidecar Folder.jpg images will be used if no [Filename].jpg image is found.
5. Changed: Folder.jpg files stored one level above the VIDEO_TS or BDMV folders will be used if no other sidecar artwork is found.
6. Fixed: Setting file association for playlist files like m3u wasn't working.
7. Fixed: Handle the case of file in database being temporarily non-existent for serving via DLNA. Some renderers (i.e. WDTV) really don't like zero byte files being served (it prevented the WD from reading other files without a reboot).
8. NEW: Added 'Convolution' to DSP Studio (more here: http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=68828.0 ).

17.0.63 (1/4/2012)

1. Changed: The default zone is named 'Player' instead of 'Here' (it's recommend that you rename zones to have a name that is meaningful to you).
2. Changed: DVD scanning speed (FF/REW) capped at 50x since the playback graph was flaky at higher speeds.
3. Fixed: Live digital television playback did not observe Custom Video Mode settings (filter selections). This problem for analog television will be fixed later.

5. NEW: Added new Netflix browsing category "Recently Watched". This may require re-configuration under Tools/Options/Services.
6. Changed: WebGizmo tuning.

17.0.62 (1/3/2012)

1. Changed: Reverted the publisher in the uninstall to "J. River" from "JRiver" because the change could cause problems when rolling back to an old build.
2. Fixed: MCWS/v1/Control/Key was not working in Theater View which made Gizmo Theater View remote mode not work.

17.0.61 (1/2/2012)

1. Fixed: Image playback (or other hardware accelerated views) could get into a state when an unexpected redraw was issued by Windows where presentation stalled the main thread and prevented timers from being serviced (so image playback could stall).
2. Fixed: Customization of Gizmo views in Options > Media Network was not working.
3. Fixed: WebGizmo thumbnails would not have text with some browsers.
4. Changed: When dealing with output signals with more than 8 channels, the program assumes the first 8 channels follow the conventional L,R,C,SW,RL,RR,SL,SR ordering for the first 8 channels so that Room Correction, Parametric Equalizer, etc. can be used on the first 8 channels.
5. Fixed: Netflix search box did not work right after exiting and re-entering the Netflix theater view.
6. Fixed: Sound was muted following a DVD seek operation (ff/rew).
7. Changed: A cancel button was added to the "Export all Playlists" wait message.
8. Fixed: Setting the bitstreaming option would fail in some cases (may require manually reenabling bitstreaming one time).
9. Fixed: Image playback was not handling lost Direct3d devices nicely, so locking the screen, etc. could break playback.
10. NEW: Added advanced option to Options > Video called "Aspect ratio mode" which allows setting a global default for video aspect ratio handling (choices: no change, stretch, crop, automatic).
11. Changed: Some tuning to the look and feel of WebGizmo.
12. Changed: Changed copyrights to 2012.

17.0.60 (12/23/2011)

1. NEW: WebGizmo merges WebPlay and WebRemote and looks like Gizmo for Android (test by navigating to [Library Server URL]/Gizmo).
2. Changed: Revised the layout of library server webpage themes in [Install Path]Data so that all are beneath [Install Path]DataLibrary Server.
3. SDK: Library Server's HTML engine supports else clauses in conditionals (see WebGizmo for an example).
4. SDK: Merged MCWS Browse/Image and File/GetImage image handling and parameters so sizing control, png, aspect ratio, etc. is available to both.
5. Fixed: Transcoding MP3's to burn a CD was failing in some cases because MC was under-estimating the final size of VBR mp3 files.
6. Changed: LAV video is now used to play JTV and Mpeg-2 content that used to use the Microsoft video decoder.
7. Fixed: Updated LAV video version to fix an issue with AAC in television.


17.0.59 (12/21/2011)

1. Fixed: Theater View message boxes (or pressing escape to show a message box) could crash in build 58.
2. Changed: Using Rename, Move, & Copy for a video file will also move sidecar edl, srt, smi, idx, sub.
3. Fixed: Renaming a video file would move a sidecar image but not update the image file field, causing the link to the image to be broken.
4. Fixed: Blu-ray titles weren't always showing up in the title menu.
5. Changed: Red October uses the latest LAV filters (v0.43). Improved stability on WinXP, improved MKV performance, fixed problems with MPEG2/H264 broadcasts, AMV decoding, various other improvements.

2. Changed: To better handle the variety of non-square pixel displays, a zone-specific option is available in Options > Video > Advanced > Aspect ratio correction (this replaces the old 'Anamorphic' aspect ratio mode).
3. NEW: Added MCC zone-specific commands MCC_SET_SUBTITLES (10052), MCC_SET_AUDIO_STREAM (10053), and MCC_SET_VIDEO_STREAM (10054) (the parameter is: int nIndex (-1 toggles forward, -2 toggles backwards)).
4. Changed: Saving a Rename, Move, & Copy preset with the same name as an existing preset replaces the existing preset.
5. Changed: Cleaning the cover art folder will only delete album images for artist / album values that aren't in the library (even if no files reference the artwork).
6. NEW: Added an MCC command to take video screen grabs MCC_VIDEO_SCREEN_GRAB (10055) [parameter: 0: use as thumbnail; 1: save as external file].
7. Fixed: The updated cover art system wasn't properly handling characters in the artist and album that weren't possible file system characters.
8. NEW: The file rename and move tool now works with DVD and Blu-ray titles in the database.
9. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).

17.0.55 (12/14/2011)

1. Changed: Core AAC audio decoder is white-listed for use in custom video mode.
2. Changed: When renaming files according to a template, MC now uses a maximum of 60 characters rather than 40 for each DB field value within the template.
3. Changed: Loading an EPG no longer attempts to find episode artwork in the cover art folder (and series images are handled by auto-import).
4. Changed: Cover art assigned to video or data files is always stored next to the file.
5. Changed: When importing a new video (or when using Cover Art > Quick Find in Cover Art Folder), only cover art next to the file is detected.
6. Changed: The command 'Use Screen Grab For Thumbnail' saves the image next to the file instead of in a central screen grab folder.
7. Fixed: Looking up cover art from the Internet for artist names with a dash in them could fail.

2. Changed: When switching display resolutions, Aero desktop composition is toggled to fix stale composition rates from causing troubles with madVR, etc. (thanks to madshi for the tip).
3. NEW: It's possible to specify a default aspect ratio mode in Options > Video > Advanced (useful if you have an anamorphic lens, etc.).

17.0.53 (12/13/2011)

1. NEW: Added initial support for DVB subtitles (please provide information or sample files if you encounter issues).
2. Fixed: Custom video config dialog could crash on some systems.
3. Fixed: Recycling files from a thumbnail view could lead to a hang.

1. NEW: New and improved system for choosing custom filters to go along with Red October (single easy to read list of changes, can apply customization per codec or container, etc.)
2. Changed: When using 'Disabled Volume' volume mode, the volume isn't offered on the OSD.
3. Fixed: Switching from 'Internal Volume' to 'Disabled Volume' didn't immediately disable any internal volume attenuation.
4. Fixed: DLNA server, audio. When "convert when necessary" was set and the target was mp3 and the source was multichannel, the conversion was failing (wasn't downmixing to 2 channel). Broken by the multichannel changes in 17.0.48.
5. Fixed: Some CD rips, especially classical, were generating folder names that were too long for the system to handle.
6. Changed: Pressing the Spacebar no longer does the same thing as pressing the Enter key in dialogs, since Spacebar is often used for de-activating screensavers.
7. Fixed: DLNA, jtv files are now converted when video conversion is set to "convert unsupported"
8. Changed: DLNA, obsolete options for "support image content" and "support video content" are removed.

7. NEW: Surround sound audio files can be played on Gizmo.
8. Fixed: Some VC1 video files were not playing on Windows XP.
9. Fixed: All http services. When receiving a http 1.1 request with "connection: close" the connection must close immediately after that transaction.
10. NEW: When controlling a remote Media Center zone, reordering, deleting, and shuffling Playing Now is fully supported.
11. Fixed: Embedded cover art in mp4 files was not used for thumbnailing.
12. Changed: When a library fails to load, if there is more than one available library, the failure dialog will offer the option to load a specific library (along with other choices like retry, load previous, restore from backup, etc.).

17.0.49 (12/7/2011)

1. Fixed: Some remote commands that used app commands (like 'back', etc.) weren't working in Theater View in the last couple of builds.
2. Fixed: Right-clicking the DSP button in the player would show a menu over the top of the Audio Path dialog.
3. Fixed: On some machines, thumbnailing of JTV or other MPEG-2 files could fail.
4. Fixed: Video backgrounds were not working in Theater View.
5. Changed: Reworked the presentation system used by hardware accelerated windows like Theater View to be more efficient (uses one less thread, negotiates with Aero better, etc.).

17.0.48 (12/6/2011)

1. Fixed: In some cases, stopping a movie and returning to Theater View would not restore the resolution when using display mode changing until leaving Theater View.
2. Changed: Posting a WM_CLOSE directly to Theater View would not work nicely (only applies to build 47).
3. Fixed: Using a custom library field [Library] in the Rename, Move, & Copy Files tool could cause the setting to be lost when reopening the dialog.
4. Fixed: The experimental fullscreen exclusive rendering in Theater View would switch the monitor refresh rate back to 60 Hz when entering Theater View from a 24 Hz movie.
5. Fixed: Theater View exclusive rendering works better when switching to other programs on a multi-monitor setup, better handles mouse cursor hiding, etc.
6. NEW: DLNA, added multi-channel audio conversion to wave/lpcm[. When converting to wave, 24 bit wave, L16 or L24 the original channel layout is used for conversion UNLESS set to "always convert" and "stereo downmix" (under advanced) is checked in which case everything is converted to 2 channel. NOTE: probably not supported by most renderers yet. Most likely to work on some DLNA DACS. For backwards compatibility "stereo downmix" should be selected with "always convert" when there is multichannel source in your library.

17.0.47 (12/5/2011)

1. Fixed: Audio Path information could be incomplete with regards to DSP plugin processing state in certain cases.
2. Fixed: Videos that exposed their subtitles with a MEDIATYPE_Text pin were not working properly.
3. NEW: Added 384,000 Hz as a possible resampling choice in DSP Studio > Output Format.
4. NEW: From memory audio playback will use up to 1GB instead of 256MB (after 256MB it checks against available memory to avoid using swap).
5. Fixed: For operations where the action window shows the progress (i.e. Conversion Cache builder), if the 'X' button was clicked the action window would never go away.
6. Changed: Screen resolution lists are sorted with the highest resolutions at the top instead of the bottom.
7. Changed: Some internal window class names changed from "J. River ..." to "JRiver ..." (would only matter if you're scripting Media Center and targetting certain class names).
8. Changed: Added experimental Theater View > Options > Advanced > Use fullscreen exclusive mode for drawing.
9. Changed: DLNA, in content directories, increment updateID to prevent container caching (their numeric ID's are dynamically assigned).
10. Fixed: DLNA, aggregate DVD's weren't always being presented with the proper mimetype and DLNA flags.
11. Changed: DLNA, Now reports the size of aggregate DVD's in the content directory.
12. Fixed: TV recordings from Hauppauge Colossus would not play.


17.0.46 (12/2/2011)

1. Changed: Added the aspect ratio of 2.40 to the list of choices for Crop Black Bars available on the on screen display.

6. NEW: Rewritten video import -- gets compression and frame rate for almost all videos and runs around 40% faster.
7. Changed: Reworked call ordering when starting video playback so that a video renderer is positioned before the graph is run.
8. NEW: DLNA added 24 bit LPCM conversion. Devices supporting this may not be available yet.

17.0.44 (11/30/2011)

1. Fixed: DVB-T channel channel switching from SD (MPEG-2) channel to HD (H264/AAC) channel, or vice versa, did not work.
2. Fixed: MCC_PLAY_TV command (and maybe other rarely used television features) did not work.
3. Changed: When using 'Do not play silence' in conjunction with gapped track switching, silence suppression first eats the gap before eating any of the track (so a long low volume fadeout won't end abruptly).
4. Fixed: Creating a virtual handheld device that pointed to a UNC path did not work nicely.
5. Fixed: Overriding an aspect ratio didn't work correctly in conjunction with Anamorphic mode.
6. Changed: Playing a data file will increment the playback statistics 'Last Played', and 'Number Plays'.
7. Changed: Updated to version .42 of LAV audio, video and splitter directshow filters. Improvements to raw PCM de-muxing and TrueHD audio playback, support raw RGB24 video in AVI.

15. Fixed: Hot keys and remote commands weren't working while watching a Netflix movie.
16. Changed: When a Theater View list is in the process of loading items, it shows "Loading..." rather than "There are no items to display".
17. Changed: When video playback is started, the graph building thread will wait for pending user interface changes (like closing of Theater View) before loading or configuring the video renderer.

17.0.43 (11/29/2011)

1. Fixed: WebPlay / Gizmo video playback with conversion was not working in build 42.

1. Fixed: An image slideshow could show the border of the last picture in certain cases.
2. Changed: Image slideshow Pan & Zoom effect uses less motion.
3. Changed: A small delay is introduced during television channel switching to reduce the chance of stutters.
4. NEW: Audio Path information is available from the main menu under Player > Audio Path.
5. Changed: Merged audio path and direct indication into DSP button of player window (DSP button will light up when playing direct with Noire skin).
6. Fixed: When transferring audio files (with transcoding) to a portable device from a Library Server, the last part of the audio was getting truncated.
7. Fixed: Digital TV built a DirectShow graph using old channel info instread of current channel info, causing playback problems in DVB-T/T2 areas.
8. NEW: Expression language supports ! operator in a conditional (ie. If(!IsEqual([Artist], Abba), a, b))
9. Fixed: When editing a list type field in the Tag Action Window, and using page up and down to switch file, typing focus was lost.

18. Changed: Clicking a list checkbox (pane tagging, etc.) doesn't switch the keyboard focus to the list.

17.0.39 (11/18/2011)

1. NEW: Player window displays an audio path icon. Hoovering over the icon displays the full path of the current audio. The icon lights up when playing in Direct mode (ie. bit-perfect output).
2. Changed: Tuned the 'Clip protection' filter of DSP Studio so that during video playback, it doesn't try to restore lost volume from clipping.
3. Changed: Tuned the response time of 'Clip protection' to be slightly slower, and made the filter more agnostic to differing input sample rates.
4. NEW: Added a 'Limiter' filter to Parametric Equalizer (still a work in progress, parameters not currently tunable).
5. Changed: Merged video volume normalization option with the updated 'Clip protection' of DSP Studio so there's only one filter in the chain responsible for the final output level.
6. Changed: Video playback requires the use of 'Clip protection' (instead of 'Overflows flatline').


17.0.38 (11/18/2011)

17.0.37 (11/17/2011)

1. NEW: 'Get Movie Info' is now 'Get Movie & TV Info'; television episodes are looked up at TheTVDB.com.
2. Changed: 'Get Movie & TV Info' better sorts results by quality.
3. Fixed: Television tuner was left in "Undefined" status when recording ended or was canceled, if the recording was started when user was already watching the channel. This would prevent subsequent recording on the same channel from taking place.
4. Fixed: Blu-ray playback from optical disc was broken in build 17.0.36.

4. Fixed: Uninstalling MC could also unregister an existing ffdshow installation.
5. NEW: Added a Playing Now > Overview view that appears when there's more than one zone that allows seeing all zones at once.
6. Changed: Television series artwork is downloaded as part of auto-import's 'Get cover art' option.
7. Changed: Artwork is no longer downloaded when loading the EPG (since the guide uses Internet images, and auto-import handles recordings).
8. Fixed: Existing television series images could get overwritten by auto-import in some cases.
9. Fixed: The Output Format option 'Source is correctly mastered for +10 dB calibration' was not being loaded properly by the options dialog.
10. Fixed: Text drawing could incorrectly break lines so that an opening parenthesis was on one line and the text after it was on the next line.
11. Fixed: Some Blu-ray titles would not play because Media Center was interpreting the playlist data wrong.
12. Changed: Updated to madVR 0.79.
13. Changed: When updating madVR, Media Center no longer wipes out existing *.3dlut and *.bin files.

3. Fixed: Movie name from mymovies.xml file was not being used - instead the movie was named according to the folder above the index.bdmv file.
4. Fixed: Video in jtv format captured from HD PVR video capture device did not play in Red October HQ.
5. NEW: SSA subtitle engine supports the custom fonts for each style used in the SSA (falls back to user selection when a block of text has no font in its style).
6. Changed: When number keys on a remote control are used to change television channel and the original input string does not match any channel, MC removes beginning '0's from the input string and tries again.

16.0.171 (9/8/2011)

1. Fixed: DLNA. A change made in 16.0.111 caused MC to return a slightly different URL in status calls than was originally provided by MC's DLNA server (when the same instance of MC was being used as the server and renderer).

2. Changed: Updated all language files to have the latest strings from the source code, and to remove any orphan strings.
3. Changed: An optical Blu-ray disk will not get reanalyzed (which could revert the name to Blu-ray Movie) when reinserted.
4. Fixed: The program was not asking for optical discs by name when trying to play an imported disc that wasn't in any drive (only applies to last few builds).
5. NEW: Added Options > Video > Hardware accelerate video decoding when possible. It will try LAV CUVID (requires nVidia card), and also DXVA (requires EVR renderer instead of madVR).

16.0.145 (8/2/2011)

1. Changed: Removed the Subtitles > On / Off menu choice that would appear for videos with no subtitles (ffdshow didn't specify if subtitles existed, but the internal subtitle engine solves this).
2. Fixed: When image or video playback was started while in Display View (from a script, SDK, etc.) the display could unexpectedly jump out of Display View.
3. Changed: Moved 'Display Settings...' popup dialog options into the main program options (Options > Tree & View > Full Screen).
4. Fixed: Switching subtitles while playing could cause a crash in rare cases.
5. NEW: Added Options > Video > Subtitle size (changes size of text-based and image-based subtitles).
6. Changed: If connection between video decoder and renderer still fails after setting video decoder output format to RGB, Red October inserts Color Space Converter and tries connection again.

9. Fixed: With the option 'Move center to front L/R' enabled, videos that used center-focused mixing could sound bad.

16.0.143 (7/29/2011)

1. Fixed: YouTube support was not working due to YouTube server changes.
2. Changed: Improved how the playback position display works so that it both appears smoother and uses fewer resources.
3. Changed: The merge of video and DVD playback code is finished. Please report any problems.
4. Changed: Revised the right-click menu layout for video / DVD playback.
5. Changed: Updated to version .31 of LAV audio and splitter directshow filters. LAV audio now handles DTS-WAV files nicely.
6. Changed: For ffdshow auto-config, we're now setting flag titled 'multiThread' to 1 as well as 'numThreads' to number of processors. May be needed since ffmpeg-mt was merged with libavcodec??
7. Changed: Updated German language file (thanks Bytestar).
8. Changed: Video resolutions not explicitly supported by the display will still be listed in Options > Video > Display Settings.

16.0.142 (7/28/2011)

6. NEW: The sidecar subtitle selection will persist between plays, just like it does for stream-based subtitle selection.
7. NEW: When showing a message box in Display View when the last used user-interface mode was Theater View, the message box will be a Theater View style message instead of a Standard View style message.
8. Faster: Artist thumbnail views load much faster (previously switching to an artist view would wait while the cover art folder was analyzed but now this happens in a low-priority background thread; especially helpful if cover art is on a drive that spins down).
9. Changed: Display modes with an integer refresh rate of 23 or lower would not appear in Media Center.
10. NEW: When multiple playlists are selected in the tree, they can be deleted with a right-click.

11. Changed: Using oggenc 2.87.

16.0.126 (7/6/2011)

1. NEW: Added support for gapless AAC playback (requires iTunSMPB header).

5. Fixed: If files were deleted from the database on a Library Server Client while a background library server sync was occurring, it could cause a crash.
6. Changed: More efficient loading / unloading of Red October filters.
7. Fixed: With Library Server authentication enabled, other copies of Media Center running on the network would not reliably discover the server.
8. Faster: Television seeking is much faster (applies to recorded and time-shifted playback).

16.0.118 (6/23/2011)

1. SDK: The skinning engine supports selecting the view header background color when inactive by using ViewHeader::InactiveHeaderBackgroundColor in the skin.

I've been using this software for 4 years. I do not feel the need to update. All I need is there.I use a hometheatre connected to the computer to listen and watch movies (all kind of format *.mkv *.mp4.....).The function I like is the conversion on the fly from DTS to DolbyDigital. and the ability to create different zones and automatically assign depending on the format.
Very flexible software. What I do not like is its graphical user interface: it's confusing, not user friendly and very old.

This software crashes my video card driver (standard AMD driver latest version). No other software including games does this. It is only playing videos which all play fine in other software vlc/kodi etc but this software does something weird with the device driver. Very little mention of problems on their forums so I can believe the 'censor' comment above. They always seem to blame the driver rather than their use of it.

I think I'll go back to Kodi.

I have been looking for a replacement for iTunes for my fairly large (2TB - 220,000 tracks) library for a number of years. On a PC, iTunes is slow to boot, slow to add tracks, slow to search, and generally more unusable with each release. I've tried Songbird, foobar and MediaMonkey, and went back to iTunes each time.

A friend recommended JRMC and I have now ditched all my other audio player software - this is very fast, has a small system footprint and does what I want. Fine for accessing data from a NAS across a wired network. It has not replaced XBMC as a HTPC video player for me yet since (as far as I can tell so far), it has to work from its own database, it won't just list file trees on the fly like XBMC will in file mode.

Very happy with JRMC and it's ended a painful 7 year relationship with iTunes for me. :)

Mediamonkey.com provides a better and free product.
The J.River product here does NOT just cost $40. You are signing on to a lifetime of paying again and again. Each year or so, they fix bugs add some new features and try to charge you again for the next release. After several years of these shenanigans you could have bought a new computer. Besides, their program is very confusing. Their .447 version mysteriously deleted your music files from you hard drive, without warning!! And they have a very bad reputation for censorship on their forums for anyone who dares to challenge them. You need this like a hole in the head!
