Version history / Release notes / Changelog / What's New SETUP - List of new features

* This is the first version in which RitzDVB comes with an Installer.
The Installer can also used to update your current RitzDVB version.
For new ASTRA users there is a full preconfigured ASTRA-Package as a choosable Type in the installer.
Included in the new installer are
- languages: german, bosnian, croatian, czech, dutch, french, italian, polish, portuguese, spanish, turkish
- transponderfiles: astra, hotbird, hispasat, thor (for more see
- channellogos: astra and hotbird (for more see
- plugins: avbroadcaster, dvbepg, mdteletext
- configfiles for remoting: via girder or pinnacle tool
- some graphs by default now included.
(but as pointed lot of times: such ready graps can or cannot work on your personal machine. So best is still to build graphs yourself as told here: )

* using RitzDVB as DVB-Server to control the dvb-card, or as DVB-Client to control the dvb-Server from other places in your lan.
for such configurations you can use now the extern Firebird Databaseserver which is available for free.
A full description and step by step guide about RitzDVB in network you'll find in the manual. See chaper Network Install for the english speakers, or the chapter Netzwerk Installation for the german ones.

* new Option "msec to reload Graph after channelswitch (Softmode)"
(this can handle some issues with the codecs as eg wrong aspect ratio with the ffdshow.)
* new Option "use AC3 if audio PID set as AUTO"
(this is for users who ever wants the ac3 pid as the prefered active pid without doing any other configuration)
* new Option "Switch to channel# after start"
(this is for users who wants a fix channel which RitzDVB tunes by restart)

* enhanced the "reindexing channelnumber by sid" function by adding an new offset dialog.
(now the sid reindex function will check for multiple satellites and opens a dialog where you can input some offsets for the channelnumbers per satellite. so you can prevent doubled channelnumbers when you reindex channels of multiple satelliteproviders which use the same sids)

* SimpleMode now store its size
* Info in bottom Statusbar if AC3 s active

* new Dateformat ";hh:nn" for the extern executables
* german Language updated

RitzDVB is the best Windows application for watching DVB with a SS1/TT/Nexus card in North America. I've tried every program out there, and Ritz is head and shoulders above the it's free.

It has a built in hardware accelerated on screen display, that also natively supports EPG (ie shows the guide on the tv through the output of a hardware accelerated card). No other windows application can do this for the NA market at the time of my testing.
