Version history / Release notes / Changelog


0.5.1 x64 beta test portable version now available.

The first x64 beta build of SmartDVB is now available for download. The build includes an initial port of channel listing and epg to unicode. The epg database smarteit.db has been modified to allow for full UNICODE EPG/EIT support. Other than that the x64 build uses the same baseline code as the 32 bit version and hence the feature set for both versions should be about the same. Care has been taken to support most of the legacy application functionality, including blindscan and plugins.
This version also improves video quality and error recovery, including better 4:2:2 handling/processing.

The build is not provided as an install but as a portable .zip archive. The installation process is simple.
-Just extract the archive and register the included filters
-Run filtersregisterfilters.bat with administrator priveleges (for example by right clicking on the registerfilters.bat and selecting 'run as administrator' with the file explorer) After which the 64 bit version should be runnable.

It is not required to install the 32 bit version alongside the x64 version, the two versions should run independent of one another.

Please note device support for the x64 build is limited for some devices, not all (legacy) device manufacturers have x64 bit sdk's available. Skystar.dev is is not available so technisat skystar devices will not be fully functional. Tevii devices will also only, possibly, work with the tevii (bda) device type, the tevii.dll required for the sdk is also not available as a x64 dll.

Great software! Although the interface looks just a teensy bit outdated - who cares in view of the rest!
I got a Terratec Cinergy HTC Stick (USB-connection) a few days ago. The delivered software is a Terratec-version of DVBViewer. Alas, took almost 4(!) hours to detect all the available DVB-C channels and channel switching takes sometimes up to 15 or 20 sec. The interface looks a bit smarter - but recording options are close to none especially regarding video/audio quality.

Here SmartDVB outsmarts! Seeking all available DVB-C channels took less than 5 minutes(!) (same hardware, same system), channel-switching is smooth and fast, i.e. instantly!
And there are numerous settings available in the recording section. Have to try those yet.
Keep up the good work!

"...unpretentious digital-tv watch application" - maybe "unpretentious", but for me (i own a Leadtek PxDVR3200H tunercard) it's working in really fullHD, crystal-clear and without any problem, with only 5-8% use of CPU. Thanks to the author!
