vdr: VDR developer version 2.1.10 (2 comments)

Added by tadi over 2 years ago

From the HISTORY file:

Version 2.1.10

  • Updated the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
  • Updated the Macedonian OSD texts (thanks to Dimitar Petrovski).
  • Updated the Romanian OSD texts (thanks to Lucian Muresan).
  • Updated the Ukrainian OSD texts (thanks to Yarema Aka Knedlyk).
  • Added "#REMOTE=LIRC" to Make.config.template (suggested by Martin Dauskardt).
  • Updated the Estonian OSD texts (thanks to Arthur Konovalov).
  • Increased the width of the left text column in the Setup menus to avoid cutting
    off German texts.
  • Added an empty target to the Makefile to make sure the sub-make for libsi is always
    called (thanks to Sören Moch).
  • Updated the Italian OSD texts (thanks to Diego Pierotto and Nino Gerbino).
  • Updated the Lithuanian OSD texts (thanks to Valdemaras Pipiras).
  • The new options "Setup/Replay/Skip distance with Green/Yellow keys" and
    "Setup/Replay/Skip distance with Green/Yellow keys in repeat" can be used to
    configure the number of seconds to skip when pressing these keys once or pressing
    and holding them (based on a patch from Matthias Senzel, originally from Tobias
    Faust).
  • The new option "Setup/Replay/Use Prev/Next keys for adaptive skipping" can be used
    to change the behavior of these keys during replay. They normally jump between
    editing marks, but with this option set to 'yes' they will do adaptive skipping.
  • The new command line option --chartab can be used to set the default character
    table to use for strings in the DVB data stream that don't begin with a proper
    character table indicator (suggested by Christopher Reimer). The old mechanism
    of using the environment variable VDR_CHARSET_OVERRIDE still works, but is now
    deprecated and may be removed in a future version. The value given in the --chartab
    option takes precedence over that in VDR_CHARSET_OVERRIDE.
  • cOsd::RenderPixmaps() now returns a pointer to cPixmap instead of cPixmapMemory
    (suggested by Thomas Reufer). This is necessary to allow plugins with derived
    cPixmap implementations to use this function. Plugins that use this function
    with cPixmapMemory now need to add a dynamic cast to the call, as in
         cPixmapMemory *pm = dynamic_cast<cPixmapMemory *>(RenderPixmaps()));
    
    They also need to call DestroyPixmap(pm) instead of "delete pm" to properly release
    the resulting pixmap after use.
    The dvbhddevice plugin has been modified accordingly.
  • A cPixmap with a negative layer no longer marks any portion of the OSD's view port
    as "dirty" when drawing on it. This may improve performance when drawing on a
    hidden pixmap, because it avoids unnecessary refreshes of the OSD.
  • Added a missing initialization of "panning" to the constructor of cPixmapMemory.
  • Updated the Dutch OSD texts (thanks to Erik Oomen).
  • Updated the French OSD texts (thanks to Régis Bossut).
  • Fixed the German translation of "Zap timeout".

vdr: VDR developer version 2.1.9

Added by tadi over 2 years ago

From the HISTORY file:

Version 2.1.9

  • Fixed a memory leak in case of broken Extended Event Descriptors (thanks to Lars
    Hanisch).
  • Fixed the German translation of "Binary skip timeout (s)" (thanks to Matthias
    Senzel).
  • Fixed the German translation of "VDR will shut down later - press Power to force".
  • Fixed the Finnish translation of "Binary skip timeout (s)" (thanks to Rolf
    Ahrenberg).
  • Updated the Lithuanian OSD texts (thanks to Valdemaras Pipiras).
  • Added SDNOTIFY to Make.config.template (suggested by Christian Richter). Also
    added NO_KBD and BIDI.
  • Added code from the "jumpplay" patch that makes the recording still be considered
    unviewed when stopping replay within RESUMEBACKUP seconds of the first mark.
  • The new option "Setup/Replay/Alternate behavior for adaptive skipping" can be used
    to make adaptive skipping only halve the skip distance when the direction changes.
    That way you can reach the desired point in a recording even if you make one too
    many skips in a certain direction (see MANUAL for details).
  • Fixed cCamSlot::Assign(), so that it actually ignores the value of Query if Device
    is NULL (as described in the header file).
  • Added a missing VDRDIR="$(CWD)" to the clean-plugins target of the Makefile, to
    avoid error messages regarding the missing vdr.pc file.
  • Updated the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
  • Updated the Estonian OSD texts (thanks to Arthur Konovalov).
  • Updated the Ukrainian OSD texts (thanks to Yarema Aka Knedlyk).
  • Updated the Romanian OSD texts (thanks to Lucian Muresan).
  • Updated the Hungarian OSD texts (thanks to István Füley).
  • Fixed switching channels in the Schedule menu after going through various Now and
    Schedule menus for different channels (reported by Matthias Senzel).
  • Fixed setting the Blue button in the Schedule/Now/Next menus, so that it only shows
    "Switch" if the selected event is on a different channel.
  • Added "NORDIG" to the list of "DVB/Standard compliance" options and using it to
    restrict the LCN (Logical Channel Numbers) parsing to networks that actually use
    this non-standard feature (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
  • In the "Edit recording" menu the '0' key can now be used on the "Name:" field to
    remove the name of the recording and replace it with the last element of the
    recording's folder path name (suggested by Christoph Haubrich). See MANUAL, section
    "Managing folders" for details.
  • Updated the Italian OSD texts (thanks to Nino Gerbino).
  • The "Select folder" menu now adds the folder names of all existing recordings to
    any names that have been predefined in "folders.conf" (suggested by Sören Moch).
  • Updated the Italian OSD texts (thanks to Diego Pierotto).
  • Fixed the German translations of "latitude" and "longitude" (they were swapped).
  • Updated the Hungarian OSD texts (thanks to Mario Fenneis).
  • Modified runvdr.template to improve compatibility with the "bash" and "dash" shells.
  • Changed the German translations if the texts related to "binary skipping" (based
    on a suggestion by Thomas Reufer).
  • Updated sources.conf to reflect the fact that Astra 4A and SES5 are actually in
    two separate positions (thanks to Arthur Konovalov).
  • Fixed cMarks::GetNextBegin() and cMarks::GetNextEnd() (thanks to Stefan Herdler).
    The behavior of these two functions is now exacly as described in the header file.
    Editing marks that are placed at exactly the same offset in a recording are now
    preserved in the cutting process.
  • Changed the naming of "binary skip mode" to "adaptive skip mode" (suggested by
    Rolf Ahrenberg and Derek Kelly).
  • cDvbPlayer and cReplayControl now use the same list of editing marks. This avoids
    inconsistent behavior with the "Skip edited parts" or "Pause replay at last mark"
    functions when the editing marks are manipulated during replay.
  • Fixed setting an empty recording name or folder to a blank in the "Edit recording"
    menu (reported by Christoph Haubrich).
  • Added a confirmation before renaming a recording to its folder name (suggested
    by Christoph Haubrich).
  • Modified EntriesOnSameFileSystem(), so that it returns 'true' if either of the given
    files doesn't exist (to avoid any actions that might be triggered if files are on
    different file system), and changed handling the 'error' variable in cDirCopier, so
    that it is initialized to 'true' and will only be set to 'false' if the entire
    copy process has been successful (problem reported by Christoph Haubrich).
  • Added the UPDATE-2.2.0 file.

vdr: VDR developer version 2.1.8

Added by tadi over 2 years ago

From the HISTORY file:

Version 2.1.8

  • Updated the Italian OSD texts (thanks to Diego Pierotto).
  • Fixed "warning: invalid suffix on literal" with GCC 4.8 and C++11 (thanks to Joerg
    Bornkessel).
  • Fixed the link to "svdrpsend (1)" in the vdr.1 man page (thanks to Chris Mayo).
  • Updated the Finnish OSD texts (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
  • Updated the Romanian OSD texts (thanks to Lucian Muresan).
  • Added functionality based on the "jumpplay" patch from Torsten Kunkel and Thomas
    Günther:
    • The new option "Setup/Replay/Pause replay when jumping to a mark" can be used to
      turn off pausing replay when jumping to an editing mark with the '9' key.
    • The new option "Setup/Replay/Skip edited parts" can be used to automatically skip
      the edited parts of a recording during replay, without the need to actually cut
      the recording.
    • The new option "Setup/Replay/Pause replay at last mark" can be used to make replay
      go into Pause mode when it has reached the last "end" mark.
    • The '8' key for testing an edited sequence now also jumps to the next end
      mark if "Setup/Replay/Skip edited parts" is active. This allows for testing edits
      in recordings that have actually been cut, as well as recordings that have not
      been cut, in case "Skip edited parts" is enabled.
  • Added support for "Satellite Channel Routing" (SCR) according to EN50607, also
    known as "JESS" (thanks to Manfred Völkel and Frank Neumann).
  • The keys '1' and '3' can now be used in replay mode to position an editing mark
    in "binary" mode (based on a patch from Rolf Ahrenberg, with modifications by Helmut
    Auer). See MANUAL, section "Editing a Recording".
  • The Yellow button in the "Setup/CAM" menu can now be used to put the selected
    CAM into a mode where it remains assigned to a device that is tuned to the current
    channel until the smart card it contains is activated and the CAM thus starts to
    descramble (see MANUAL, section "Setup/CAM" for details).
  • Updated the Estonian OSD texts (thanks to Arthur Konovalov).
  • Added ARGSDIR to the ONEDIR section of Make.config.template (suggested by Derek
    Kelly).
  • Made cRecording::GetResume() public (suggested by Stefan Braun).
  • Fixed setting the read index in cDvbPlayer::Goto() in case Still is false.
  • The function cDvbPlayer::Goto() now automatically calls Play() if Still is false.
  • Added support for LCN (Logical Channel Numbers), which plugins may use to sort
    channels (thanks to Rolf Ahrenberg).
