    Hi sub, that is all I was asking, I think I just may have missed them in the past. So anything like this is always in the release notes? Is release notes = change log?

    Yes, the release notes are cut and paste from my change log file.

    Thanks sub. Unfortunately I am in one of my 'very boring to everyone else except myself' moods.

    So does that mean there have been no changes to the config.xml from release 1.4.7 through 2.0.3? I am finding it hard to spot the changes in the release notes?

    OK , ok I go that wrong, one I spotted now, takes a keen eye to read through

    from 1.5.36

    added config.xml option to use older 'MPEG-2 Splitter' filter instead of 'MPEG-2 Demultiplexer' for playback of .mpg files.
    so guess it goes back to what I kind of was asking before? Could the release notes have some kind of better order to them? (and I do realise that it is not like you don't have enough to do already....)

    In fact from a good skim read this:

    added config.xml option to use older 'MPEG-2 Splitter' filter instead of 'MPEG-2 Demultiplexer' for playback of .mpg files
    is the only change that has been made to the config.xml file (not available through usual user settings) since 1.4.7?

    Every release has changes to config.xml, but these are usually for my own personal use, and not intended for users to change. For the most part I try to make any new settings available in the Settings screen if they're intended for a user to tweak, so you can expect very few config.xml changes intended for users to change.

    There have been some other changes listed in the change log, for example.
    - now able to config MVP control and media ports using <StartPortControl> and <StartPortMedia> config.xml settings
    - added a <PluginLocation> setting in config.xml that can be used to override the default location plugins are loaded from.
    ...etc
    Some of them should didnt explicitly mention the setting name:
    - added setting to run recording service at higher priority
    - added setting to hide ATSC/DVB Radio stations in TV Guide.
    ...etc
    Usually in these case I've told the person that requested to the change, that it was done, and <xxxxxxx> is the setting name to look out for in the next release. I'll try to be more consistent in future with listing the setting name in the change log.

    Yes I know, but being an easily readable .xml file I am one of those bores that opens the config.xml and reads through it, with a new release of the software, and wonders about 'oooh what is that?' I was playing devil's advocate and trying to draw some input from the Master in!

    I have no interest in any changes made to the config.xml that appear in the NextPVR Settings Window. This is how it should be.

    I know, devil's advocate as above

    As above.....

    So my simple wishlist in answer to gEd's audio problem would be..... ('cor we got there in the end!)

    When I said I 'flag' as per my first input on this thread, I meant could you be more consistent with the way that any change to the config.xml is noted. Which you have beaten me to

    Extra request is:

    release notes -

    General:
    did this
    did that
    did something even better

    config.xml (advanced settings at your risk) etc
    added ability to change a wellington boot into a fairy cake

    etc

    That looks interesting. Can you execute it while npvr is running from a remote button and have it change? Or do you need to quit npvr, execute this then start npvr again? To be honest, I could live with that as I could do it all from the remote and I dont actually want to change that often.
